My personal favorite post this month was, How a Whisper Becomes a Roar– What do we need for education transformation? I believe we need educators, parents, and students in our social networks to collaborate and share our ideas in order to be heard. Collectively, if we collaborate, we have a pretty powerful voice that should lead education transformation.
My Favorite Tech Tools, Apps, and Resources This Month–
Wiggio– I will definitely blog about this fantastic free tool for collaborating on group projects. Included are calendars, updates, scheduling, a virtual video meeting place and so much more! I love this tool!
Wetoku– Are you enjoying the interviews? I use a free tool, Wetoku, to conduct and embed the interviews. This is so easy to use and I love the side by side cameras.
Story Robe App– With this free app students create a story on the Iphone or Ipod Touch by using pictures or videos they upload. Then the students narrate the story with their own voice and publish it on Youtube or email the story to their parents, teachers, or others.
