Webinar archive (you must watch it on a computer):

Fliqz has shut down their service. To access this video, email support with this video id: d6f03da09f4f445a9cba393cf66ec847

If you did not attend the webinar live you must watch the archive and answer this question about it in a blog post. Title your blog post "April webinar question."

1. In the webinar LeAnn gives a lot of examples on how to use Animoto and Audioboo for yourself or within the classroom. Which examples might you incorporate into the classroom? Explain.



REQUIRED and due in May: Create a presentation using one tool you learned about in MILI (Google Sites, Educreations, Animoto, Audioboo, etc.) that highlights what you learned in MILI. Here are examples from 08-09 participants, 09-10 participants, 10-11 participants, and 11-12 participants. (NOTE: Past participants may have been shown how to use different presentation tools. You will need to use a tool you learned about in MILI.)

  • Prezi - the zooming presentation tool
  • Skitch - Draw images, add text and shapes to photos, etc.
  • ShowMe - another tool with an interactive whiteboard just like Educreations





1.Create a presentation showing what you learned in MILI and how you could see applying some of it in your classroom, with students, or for your own professional development. Use any of the presentation tools we've talked about, or create your own Google Site, to create this presentation. This is required and must be completed by our May meeting.

2. Remember to post at least 2 blog posts a month.




If you can't think of what to write about in your blog post, keep these things in mind:

  • Keep the blog post on the theme of the month. Think about the ideas, tools, or concepts introduced when writing your post.
  • What this month was interesting to you? How could you see using an idea, concept, or tool in your professional or personal life or in the classroom, or how have you already used it? Give examples.
  • What was new to you? Identify an idea, concept, or tool that was new to you and explore your thoughts about this new item and how it could add to or change something you already do.
  • Keep it positive. We know you may not love every idea, concept, or tool we tell you about, but tell us positively why you think it may not work for you. Give examples.
