Following a great first day at #ACSATech Innovative Tech Academy, I was inspired to complete the introductory activity for #ETMOOC.

    That was a fun video- I’ve not seen GoAnimate n a while, they seem to have a similar capability as Xtranormal —

      @CogDog thanks for viewing and commenting. It seems like Go Animate features are comparable now. Looking forward to #ETMOOC.

    Hi Mark,
    I have not used many video tools other than Animoto and Stupeflix. I should though. People like them, and it would be a fun way for me to introduce ideas to teachers (I am a lit coach).

    We are moving into the second week. What are you looking forward to?

    • mpalmerston says:

      Thanks for commenting. I too have been thinking about ways to introduce new ideas as part of my school’s professional development.

      I was able to attend the orientation, but watched the Twitter intro from the archive; my engagement was so much greater in real time.

      I am looking forward to engaging in a broader conversation about #edtech as well as expanding my engagement with my #PLN; what about you?

      • jacbalen says:

        I think this week will help me think more deeply about ways I can contribute to the learning of others, whether that is growing my PLN, working on my blogging, or learning about some new tools for collaboration, in particular. My system is only now thinking about the integration of technology into the classrooms. In other words, we are just now moving away from computer labs to classroom based devices. We really, as a system, have not yet processed the integration of social media tools into the teaching and learning cycle. We have a big job ahead of us. This is part of the reason I am in this mooc. I want to be able to support teachers as they are faced with the expectation to implement project based learning, problem based learning, or inquiry learning. No small feat.
        Week two….good to go.
