Anyone know a free iOS app similar to Storyrobe that outputs a video file? @labam wants to know!
Great day of PD w/teachers in Gadsden City Schools, Alabama… 10 am to 7 pm, I’m beat! Good conversations & learning all day :-)
@mscofino Safe travels to you!
@wzuber We used Today’s Meet but users put their own userids in. Teachers today asked for a tool where userids can be entered & locked
@wgoodwink5 Glad to be able to be here in Gadsden :-)
What’s a free, web-based backchannel tool/website that lets a teacher “lock” the userid for accountability purposes?

@HP_Edu yes, definitely!
@GingerTPLC so are you going to change your TwitterID after the school year is over?

@40ishoracle Those definitely aren’t the prices for IWBs I hear about most schools paying. :-(
The quiz module in BlackBoard/WebCT can be very irritating when it gives errors, creating a similar quiz in 2 diff sections :-(
@40ishoracle what model are you buying for $1500? Even if your costs are a wash, the functional differences are huge. Many IWBs r high $$$
I’m grading preservice teacher #scratch projects as well as T4T blog reflections this morning. Very inspiring to see my students’ creations!

@edventures what do you mean by “timebound?”
@edventures not sure, I saw it’s functioning on one of my Wordpress.com sites but I haven’t installed it elsewhere to investigate.
RT @rkiker Couldn’t agree more that IWBs are overpriced and underutilized, poor opportunity cost and do little to put tech in student hands.

Last day for me to drive our Edmond to Classen SAS carpool. Exciting but also sad. I’ll miss morning conversations w/Neha.
I don’t think an educational computer lab can be considered modern or adequate to meet ISTE Nets when IE7 is the only permitted browser :-(
I’m missing resources at UNT. Only 4 Flip cameras to check out for my UCO classes which have 25 students each. Last term we had a set of 15.
@courosa I don’t think so, they have the machines totally locked down. I’d much prefer an open lab environment running deepfreeze…
It’s frustrating when an educational computer lab, running WinXP, has all “RIGHTclicking” disabled. That’s like running a race w/1 leg.
@darinrking the iPad2 is definitely a big step forward with the included cameras - still not as powerful/capable as a laptop tho
@kentbrooks yep - the speed increase we all felt moving to 3.5” floppies was great… and DUAL floppies? Who had that much $$$?

Just unboxed the ‘ole blue & white Yosemite G3 & an extra HUGE 6 GB hard drive in our garage. Favored tools of the digital stone age.
RT @RSHartley Son away at college survives w/out TV or cable. Watches only what he wants via Internet. Asked if he wanted a new TV, said no!
@scitechyEDU I haven’t done much homework yet on Hulu compatible players but need to!
@scratchteam ok sounds good - thanks!
@RSHartley that’s pretty amazing but also heartening! Definitely a sign of the changing times!

@mramidon I’m looking at the AppleTV closely and we may go with it… I’ve wanted to setup local streaming/playback from a media server
pre-service teacher / student reflections & experiences like this using Scratch make my day! http://ow.ly/4jVoK
@scitechyEDU sweet! What are you going to use for your Hulu player on your TV?
@mramidon With the iPad2 supporting mirroring that could work, tho I think MobiTV is iPhone-only, maybe for that reason…
@DustinJohnson21 I definitely will. It is going to be an interesting experiment. My wife will miss our DVR - going to explore options 4that
@sringsmuth (actually he was a year ahead of me, so he’s a fellow grad but not classmate)
@sringsmuth thanks so much for that link. Interestingly, one of my best friends / USAFA classmates is at DARPA now working that project!
@scratchteam Is there a common hashtag to use when sharing projects created with Scratch?
@digitalst indeed. I find the headache comes much faster with binge digital content consumption :-)
@Luke1946 Right - but our family is not into watching live sports enough to justify the cost at this point…
@Luke1946 Well, at this point bandwidth for a home Internet connection isn’t metered like it is for cell phones. Maybe that will change…
@mramidon We are going to check out Hulu. Not sure what we’ll do sports-wise. Other than college football I’m not a huge fan, so we’ll see..
@Allanahk Yes, the older VGA cable I’d bought with my iPad1 works with my iPad2, except now ALL content is mirrored out! :-)

@edventures absolutely. VGA out support is the #1 thing I’m excited about for the iPad2 :-)
@ashers1stgrade a TEDx event 4 OKC. Amazing speakers selected to share short, inspirational talks. Like the bigger TED conf, but 4 Okies :-)
Using @Flipboard on an iPad can = binge drinking digital content. TMI easily shared. Can be dangerous. Consume & use with caution.

@justinrsutton I think the point is that if the CEO’s kids are in the public schools, she’ll be more invested in improving & funding them
