Google Teacher Academy: Day Two

From Google Teacher Academy
Google Teacher Academy Day 2 was a whirlwind morning of discussion, collaboration, and SMACKDOWN! It was great to connect with all of the wonderful educators at Google Teacher Academy. Everyone in the group was so energetic, dedicated, and knowledgeable.

Here are a few of my favorite "takeaways" from the day:
  • The operator "unique" can be really helpful when reorganizing data from a multiple page form in Google Docs.
  • A "SMACKDOWN" is a fun way to share new apps and sites. You allow people to share their favorites sites on a wiki or shared document and then give them 2 minutes to demo it. Each person tries to out-do the next!
  • Merging tracks in Audacity is a good way to get around the "single audio track" feature in Photostory or Windows Movie Maker.
I am excited to continue learning with the new members of my PLN virtually. Tomorrow? It's back to work! Yipee, I cannot wait! I have so much new learning to share!
