Edcamping on the Weekend

Edcamps have become a wonderful phenomenon throughout the country. This past weekend I was fortunate enough to connect with educators with a passion for technology in Madison. I didn't even know about it until the night before and was more than willing to just show up and hope they welcomed me in. Upon arrival I was greeted with a smile and invited in to a day of collaborating, sharing, and learning. The positive buzz of educators engaged in learning and sharing is a real high for a techie like myself. I learned about more iPad integration ideas, Web 2.0 tools, Chrome applications, extensions, and the difference between, and finally about different practices in education. Did I say that this was free? Free professional development? Free lunch? Free prizes (like an iPad mini)? Don't miss the upcoming registration for EdCamp Milwaukee! This Friday, March 1st at 4pm the registration starts.

iPad iMovie Trailer Workshop

So the first of a series of after-school workshops wrapped up with an amazing example of what can happen when students are given the opportunity to create.  The greatest accomplishment of any educational activity is when students become inspired and the learning does not stop at the doors of the school.

iMovie Trailers offer a lot of creative options as you can see from the following examples.  Enjoy these examples and please come visit the website - to see more.
