Back to school means buying crayonsIt’s pre-planning time! I can tell because of the spike of hits on my blog that include the Google search phrase “lesson plans”. Oh, that and I’ve gone back to school this week. Now, onto the techie goodness …

I gave a technology overview to my coworkers this morning. We covered three main topics:

Delicious went over best, followed by Blogger. Teachers loved the tip of searching on before hitting Google. The cool thing about is that it’s obviously useful, but (like an onion!), you can dig through the layers of additional uses. Looking back, wikis didn’t go over well. The teachers didn’t “get it”. I think the shortcomings in the wiki coverage was that I didn’t have the time to show enough examples or let the teachers practice.

I really enjoyed giving this presentation, so I’m working on fleshing it out to submit to the GaETC Conference as a concurrent session this November.
