ISTE Conference 2015



The information at the ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) in June in Philadelphia was abundant and at times overwhelming.  I attended sessions on Chrome Extensions, Touchcast and many more.

Although I thought that Touchcast offered some amazing features for creating videos, I was very disappointed to learn that it does not as yet provide closed captioning.  I hope that this feature will be offered in the near future because I would really like to use this tool for my online course.

The Chrome Extensions: Making Chrome Work for You presentation by Samantha Morra was excellent.  She even shared a link to her presentation slides.

What I have learned is that I need to practice with each of these tools or extensions in order to make them useful for me and to be able to share what I have learned with other teachers.  Over the next few weeks, we'll see if "practice makes perfect!"
