FETC, the giant Florida Educational Technology Conference, is happening in Orlando. Chromakey will have to wait. Already, the DEN had a pre-conference event. Notable among the attendees were Kathy Schrock and Tom Turner, seen here toting a very flat screen. Not a plasma–a film screen (remember them?). Also, Danielle Abernathy and Karen Sedden, former field managers who remain active DEN members. Coni Rechner and Cristin Frodella, from Google education, did the geocaching activity and found a big piece of the Berlin Wall outside the Hard Rock Cafe–a wordplay on the restaurant name (Berlin Wall was a ‘rock’). For Discovery Education, I was fortunate enough to accept three awards from Technology & Learning magazine–for each for Academy 123, PowerMedia Plus, and unitedstreaming. Discovery Education took home more trophies than any other entity. Plus free appetizers. I am doing two sessions: Mixing Google Earth and Media, and the MegaVCR. Both PowerPoints are included below as pdfs for those who can’t make it to Orlando. Check them out. I plan to do both PowerPoints completely from my iPod, despite the fact that iTunes ate 40 gigs of video from the iPod on the plane (my fault–sort of). Google Earth I’ll visit live, of course. Although I have backed up some tours with SnapzX Pro. Late here, but watch for updates!
