Reflection of EdcampHome 2014 ....EdcampHome was the place to be this morning. The organizers of the EdcampHome really brought it today. It was well organized, Kelly did a great job with the Google Scripts and getting everyone where they needed to go. I myself stayed on the EdcampHome page and listened in on a few sessions. I really enjoyed all of the sharing and learning that went on today. I listened in on Augmented Reality and learning how others are using Augmented Reality in their classroom. I also peeked in on the Connected Classroom. Twitter is a great way to wet your feet in becoming a connected educator. I use Twitter to connect and build my PLN. If you would like to connect with me my Twitter handle is @katieann_76. I also use Edmodo to build, connect, and to run my Global Project. I try to share my experiences by writing in my blog. Being apart of the Teacher Learning Community in SimpleK12 is another way I try to connect and share with other educators. Some teachers do find it hard to share what is going on in their classroom. My suggestion is to try one share tool being Twitter, a Blog, a Wiki and etc... Start slow and embrace your passion.
In session 2 I learned about Virtual Field Trips. I didn't realize that Google had started Virtual Field Trips via Google+ Connected Classroom and Google Hangouts. To view upcoming Field Trips or past trips visit the Google+ Connected Classroom.
During the SLAM session I learned about:
- LiveSlide by Atlas Learning
- Google Maps Engine
- Snagit for Chrome
- LucidPress - Great replacement for Publisher and Glogster
Thanks for sharing and letting me be apart of #EdcampHome.
