Still to come for the Spring 2011 semester will be presentations on iPad and iPod Apps and on Moodle. Dates will be announced soon for April. As a follow-up to the previous post about the Google Apps, sessions were held just before and after the December holiday season to introduce Google Docs, Google Calendar and Google Sites to a variety of people in the College of Education. Many people did not know about the collaborative functions of Google Docs and were surprised to learn about the multiple calendar and privacy functions of Google Calendar. A repeat of the same content will be held during Spring Break and during the week of March 21st to grab folks that could not make the sessions offered in December and early January. To sign up for the sessions, go to this Google Form to see dates and times.
I am always looking for new ideas for workshops and fall semester colloquium topics and presenters. Please take some time to make a suggestion or two using this quick survey. You’ll need to log in with your MSU Net ID to fill it out.
Lastly, I’ll be attending the 2011 MACUL Conference in a couple weeks and I’ll be sure to post about the great presenters and ideas that seem to always come out of the sessions and workshops. There are great things happening in the K-12 world with instructional technology, with some very creative and innovative teachers out there doing their best to integrate technology into their lesson plans to prepare the next generation of learners.
