At NECC last week, I presented a session called “Using Mobile Technology to Differentiate and Enrich Instruction.” The ISTE folks had wanted to podcast the session, but I wasn’t crazy about the legal agreement they were using. (It wasn’t Creative Commons and gave pretty extensive rights to Apple.)

So….I created my own digital version of this session for folks to download:

Video version (streaming, for viewing in a browser; loads faster, but lower quality)

If anyone is interested in a higher resolution version to share with folks who weren’t able to attend, email me, and I’ll try to send you a CD.

For those who are interested, I audio recorded this with a very inexpensive Olympus WS-100 pocket recorder. I edited the audio in Audacity and brought it all into Windows Movie Maker for editing. The visuals included exported jpgs from my presentation slides and screen-capture videos made with Camstudio. I used HandShare to create the Palm movies (which is the same software I used to present). Creating the whole thing took about 4 hours.

It was a lot of fun making this and was a good way to reflect on my own style of presenting (and hopefully refine it for upcoming events).

I hope this is a useful resource for you all.

    Thanks for the comment. (Sometimes it’s hard to know if anyone finds this stuff useful or not!)

    By the way, did you watch it online (streaming)? If so, how was the speed?

    I watched it with steaming video, and the speed seemed fine.

    I find your blog extremely helpful for my own PD. After I student teach in the fall, hopefully, I’ll be able to use material from your website.

    As far as comments go, I wonder the same thing about my blogging. Its nice that you respond to your comments (I think bloggers should out of courtesy if they’re going to have comments). I use RSS to keep track of the blogs I enjoy, but I get the opinion I’m in minority.

    Have a great one.
