Sunday Sit, Sip, and “Sync” ~ 11-20-2011
Shannon and I were on the road this week presenting at IETC in Springfield and at the Triple-I Conference in Chicago.
We did three sessions in Springfield that included iPads, SMARTBoards, and our favorite web tools.
In Chicago we enjoyed the opportunity to co-present with Dr. Voltz as a team with “Dueling Apps”.
While waiting to present in Springfield, we grabbed a little “down-time” to sit in on a few sessions. Two helpful tips we picked up that we felt were worth sharing apply to our favorite technology pieces, the SMARTBoard and the iPad. (LOVE the iPad!)
We usually toggle our iPads to “airplane-mode” while traveling to conserve the battery when we are working without the Internet. A tip provided by Ledith Whitehall was to use this toggle (found in your settings) as an alternative to rebooting your iPad. It saves a ton of time shutting-down/restarting your device.
Here’s a tip for our SMARTBoard users. If you use the “Random Word Chooser” in the Lesson Activity Toolkit, and you find that it makes the choices in the same order, look down in the lower right corner and choose “Reset” and your choices will, once again, be random.
As we begin another week,
we want to take a minute to let all of our friends know how much we appreciate the opportunity to work with you at our workshops and in your schools.
It truly has been a blessing for which we are thankful.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and we wish you the best as you “unplug” to spend family time together with those you love…
