On Denton ISD In-Service “Getting Techy” session

RobotHandoutRaminImageMy handout from today “Technology Teasers” Robot Handout PDF includes some tools discussed by Greg and I to facilitate discussion for or today’s In-Service day for Denton ISD librarians . Elementary and Secondary School librarians went to each table to share their ideas. in what Donna called “speedgeeking” ; ) I brought along “Comment Robot” so people could put in suggestions on slips of paper as well.

DentonISD popular suggestions during #di4ll “speedgeeking” session: Glogster, Photo Story (mac/windows xp) Aurasma, Windows Moviemaker, Animoto, & befriend your ITS!

The ITS (Instructional Technology Specialist) was used interchangeably with CTS (Computer Technology Specialist) and it sounded like activities performed differed. Some librarians raved about their ITS/CTS and how s/he enabled collaboration with teachers to reach students. That’s pretty much want academic research and instructional librarians note about IT collaboration or lack thereof. We’re serving a different age group of students but there are similarities to the collbaoration process. (librarian& teacher/professor). Other ideas were: “Appy Hour” and “Tech Tuesdays” trainings for staff and technology newsletters.

I’ve hyper-linked  ideas (in image below) suggested by the librarians (some of which were new to me and I can’t wait to play with!):

Apps for Free, Big Huge Labs, Blabberize, Class Dojo, Dropbox, Edmodo, Google EarthiMovie, LiveBinders, Prezi, Sock Puppet app (itunes), TellagamiVideoliciousVoiceThread  Weebly, and more!
