Here are some Take Aways from our iPad Palooza and ISTE 2012. They were created in a tool called Storify. This year I tried something new for note taking during conferences. I posted on twitter ideas, thoughts and links that I wanted to remember.
Then I went to the Storify site and just dragged any post from twitter onto my page. From there I added text, links, etc. to tell my story of ipad Palooza and ISTE 2012. Storify allows you to export your story straight to your wordpress blog (which is right here!) A very cool tool!!!
Some of the entries are just ideas with a reference to who said them, some have links to resources or more information.
So….here’s my Storify…
First, I want to include Debbie Smith’s reflections on ISTE. We were together for all of our sessions and most of our adventures (except my “excellent trolley adventure”).
Deb’s description of the feeling of temporary suspension of reality is perfect.
And her Take Aways are not to be missed.
The following links are from Tony Vincent’s Session at ISTE 2012. He makes organizing your life look so easy, and provides some great links and tips for doing so.
