VideoConferencing
  • Making connections

Wiki's

They recommended Wikispaces.com and PBwiki.com for wikis.

JING Project

Jing allows you to capture images, record video, and share. I have used that on this wiki here.

VoicethreadThey showed examples of student comments on Voicethread based on one image, country of origin project where kids completed a collage project and students commented on the top 6 examples, and an example in math where students take turns showing how to solve an equation and a professional development voicethread regarding teaching online.

Several staff in Edina have used Voicethread.com for different projects. Here's my first as an example

This collaborative project focused primarily on how they would take what they learned back to their classrooms. I wonder if a project between districts exploring a similar initiative would prove to be valuable?
