Mobile Tools and Strategies for ELTSeptember 17, 2014
iPad App Touch Cast
Explain Everything Great tool for making e-lectures

Layar example> http://www.ismartedu.net/augmented-reality-for-parents/
Layar used to focus more on environmental AR. I’m a little disappointed that they shifted to print. It was really fun to look about the room and create Layars on the walls :-)
MoveNote - Quick, easy video lecture creator (mobile). Upload pictures or PPT and include your video (webcam) from your phone. I’ve used this to do some “flipped” lectures. The problem I have with it is that I can’t download a final video. I’ve also has a small problem with conversion of some PPTs. However, it is good for quick and dirty tutorials.

TTT#407 Welcome Back after Ferguson w/ Marcia Chatelain, Karen Fasimpaur, Alicia Lobaco, Jo Paraiso, and Chris Sloan - 8.20.14
59:39 minutes (40.96 MB)
We were planning a "Welcome Back" episode on Teachers Teaching Teachers, something about how to launch connected learning with Youth Voices in our classrooms and how to be more planful about connecting our curriculum. #connectedlearning.
How do we do that after Michael Brown's killing and the Ferguson protests? More than ever we need those days, even weeks of trust-building with our students, yet we also can't pretend that Ferguson isn't happening.
For this episode of TTT, Youth Voices teachers Chris Sloan, Paul Allison, Jo Paraiso, and Alicia Lobaco talk about how we are going to be launch a connected learning curriculum this year on Youth Voices http://youthvoices.net and how we are talking about and learning from Michael Brown's shooting, the protests, and the confrontatons in Ferguson. In addition we were also joined by Dr. Marcia Chatelain, who has been organizing #FergusonSyllabus on Twitter. On LinkedIn, Marcia writes:I am first and foremost an educator. I have been teaching high school and college students since 2003. My career goals include publishing on the experiences of women and girls in the United States, African-American women's leadership and the relationship between food and society.
Dr. Chatelin is also a Ford Foundation Diversity Postdoctoral Fellow and she is the recipient of a 2012-2013 Ford Foundation Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowship to work on her second book on food and civil rights. She is also Assistant Professor in History
#FergusonSyllabus is a great way to connect with others who are thinking about when and how to bring the Michael Brown shooting into the curriculum.
One of the take-aways from this episode of TTT was to be reminded of the power of http://youthvoices.net for our students. It's important to see and hear the views of students from different communities. The students in Chris Sloan's classes in Salt Lake City and the students in Jo Paraiso's classes in Oakland and my students in the Bronx are relatively homogeneous, and they can learn a lot from talking with students outside of their immediate school communities, especially on issues of race.Click Read more to see the chat that was happening during this live webcast,
