Helping teachers integrate technology into instruction

Wow!  Thirteen weeks have gone by really, really quickly – at least they have for me!  I hope that, by participating in these blog posts, that you have learned about at least a couple of new tools that you didn’t know about and are excited to try a couple of new things in the new school year!

When I first started this series, I intended to end today thinking that we were going to start back next week, on August 1st (hello, state legislature!).  Now, our delay is your gain.  With the extra time, you have a few extra days to go back and re-read and comment on any posts that you would like.  Don’t forget – participating in at least seven of the weeks gets you entered to win a Kindle Fire! 🙂

For our final entry, I’m going to leave you with a “slam” – a bunch of great tools for you to look at at your convenience.  There is a guy named Brandon Lutz who does an awesome presntation called, “60 in 60” – it’s 60 web tools that he presents in 60 minutes.  I had the opportunity to sit in on the presentation while I was at ISTE in June and it is amazing!  Talk about fast paced!!  I’m going to pass along his favorite 60 web tools for 2012 to you.   You don’t have to look at them all in an hour, though!  🙂  Some of them we’ve already looked at; some of them you won’t care for; it’s ok.  Use what you like, discard what you don’t.  The important thing is that you know about them and can make the determination for yourself!

Here is the link to the 60 in 60 website.  It has lots of information on it, including a Prezi presentation that you can watch that shows examples of each of these tools!

    I’ve enjoyed your blog this summer. I really want to try some things with QR codes in my classroom this year. I’m glad you included some information.

  3. This one is my favorite. Thanks for all your hard work.

  4. I look forward the next few weeks to checking out some of the 60 in 60. I have enjoyed the resources you presented to us. I plan to use some of these in my classroom. Second semester I may try a few different ones. I definitely have many to choose from.Thanks so much for presenting these resources to us.

  5. I am going to go back through all the great things you’ve posted on this blog! There are a few that I’m definitely going to use! I love the ones that let students share with each other! That will make research so much easier. I’ve used Prezi, but I intend to go through the tutorial again to fine tune my facilitation in class. I am going through the 60 in 60 very thoroughly! Thanks! it’s like Christmas in July for a tech lover like me! Thanks Sandy!! this has been great!!!!!

  6. Thank you Sandy for passing along such great information all summer. I love this last post and look forward to reviewing the latest list in detail!
