ISTE Notes

As promised I am posting some of my notes from my experience at ISTE2012. This is a compilation of some of the presentations, links, and resources that I enjoyed and want to share with my colleagues. Enjoy!

10 Useful iPad Resources for Educators - SimpleK12

Apps that look good:

Puffin Web Browser http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/puffin-web-browser/id406239138?mt=8  Allows you to view videos that need flash on the iPad! (I tried it and it works!)

Kid pix for iPad http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/kid-pix-deluxe-3d/id406222580?mt=12
Good for storytelling! Kids can record themselves as the characters and add costumes.


ISTE Videos posted on YouTube channel

Sophia: Free memberships for teachers allows you to use instructional videos or post videos for you class (flipped classroom)

Tubechop allows you to grab video clips from YouTube, chop them, and share so you are only using the part that you want to use
