  1. Latest Google Docs features

    If you are using Google Docs (and Spreadsheets and Presentations…) you’ll be happy to hear about some of their latest changes and additions.  Some of the cool ones are the ability to create forms and have people fill them out.  Then when they are updated you can view the data in your aggregator.  Some people […]

  2. Administrators Among Us

    Standup and be counted. Someone recently shared that they feel disconnected from the DEN at times because they are an administrator and not a teacher. The New York DEN would like to recognize the administrators in our midst. April 25th is Administrative Day. The New York DEN Leadership Council would greatly appreciate it if the […]

  3. Back Home and Back to the Basics

    Sitting here at Logan International Airport in Boston awaiting my flight back to Chicago. Able to check off another on my list of things to do, attend a National NSTA Conference. I couldn’t have picked a better year to go. This year’s conference was held in Boston. I met a ton of great teacher scientists. […]

  4. Palm Beach Technology Conference

  6. Using YouTube Videos

    I think it is safe to say that many teachers can find the good in you tube. However, the internet connection is a limiting factor  if it is not available. It wasn’t until recently that I discovered that youtube amongst many other online video libraries could be downloaded. For example if you go to www.keepvid.com […]

  15. Adobe Photoshop Express vs. Picnik

    After months of waiting, Adobe has finally entered into the online photo editing arena with Adobe Photoshop Express. I’ve been waiting rather impatiently for this one, since I Adobe has always been the image editing king. I obviously had rather high hopes for it. That being said, I’ve been pretty darn impressed with Picnik.com, and […]
