I share a lot of posts from Free Tech for Teachers because 1) I love new technology! and 2) Richard Byrne always has awesome things to share. Sometimes I find lots of his posts open as tabs on my browser, and instead of sharing them in separate posts, I throw ‘em all together. Here are my latest favorites:
This is one of the first compelling uses I’ve seen of Prezi, though I’m still underwhelmed by the software.
Ok, world-shaker, now I am convinced I’m the female you… I like Prezi, but have also felt underwhelmed by it. My laptop trackpad also really hated using it. Recently, one of the teachers in my school had her students make Prezis, and I’m interested to see how that turned out.
I definitely need to see more examples like this with Prezi. I feel it’s pretty easy to turn it into a flashy Powerpoint.
Also, I'm convinced you may be the female me. Maybe with fewer pictures of baby animals.
Thanks for the wildly generous compliment! I feel very lucky to be working with you (and the others) involved with Team Teachers. Also, I may be the female you… the baby animals thing can be easily fixed.
Who I am: A fourth year high school history teacher at an urban(ish) high school in New Jersey.
What I blog about: Stuff related to education I like, and stuff I hope can help other teachers out. Technology, deals on supplies, helpful books. My focus lately is on educational technology & related resources. Occasionally, I also post things related to education reform. Because I post articles that I feel will be of interest to teachers with varying views, the political-related posts made here do not necessarily reflect my beliefs or opinions, nor do they reflect the beliefs of my employer.
What I like learning & reading about: Other teacher's opinions about and experiences with teaching & education. How I can enrich my classroom and reach out to my students. If you write about this stuff, let me know, because I probably want to read it.
What you should submit: Anything that could help a teacher.
