Quizlet is an easy program that can work for math. Check out Josh's trinomial example example: http://quizlet.com/34025898/scatter
I also learned that you can put in videos to Google Forms.
3. Cool Tools for the BYOD Classroom: Tammy Worcester www.tammyworcester.com @tammyworcester Evernote tip sheet
This is a feedback system that you can draw pictures and submit them to the instructor.
http://www.infuselearning.com/ I tried it and it is really cool.
She shortened urls and made a QR code with a Google Document. http://tammyworcester.com/urlshortener/
She made a Google Form and had us enter our name and the place we were born. She then took the data and put it in a site called www.batchgeo.com Instructions are here: http://tammyworcester.com/batchgeo/
She did a different presentation with Greg Tang and I thought you would like to see some of that info: Evernote Handout
4. I saw Nancy Norem Powell @NAPmath doing a session on SMARTBoard Wigits http://napmath.wordpress.com/ and http://smartboardsmarty.wikispaces.com/
I learned about how there is a beta version of Extreme Collaboration which was taking information from any device (not a clicker) and using the info on the SMARTBoard. Click here on how to get it
5. I met Tony Schlorff who told me about the SMART LightRaise™ interactive projectors which does not need the board. It shines on the wall and you can draw using your finger. AMAZING. He said it costs about a third less than the regular SMARTBoard.
6. Lastly, I went to a workshop with Our Journey in “Going Google…” Matt Dusterhoft, Pat Deane & Kate Fahey Lockport Township District 205 Click here for their handout twitter: Kate:@EdTechKate Pat: @ITDeane Matt:@mduster
