Asked to present an infomercial for existing technology resources for teachers on campus at an upcoming faculty meeting, I spent some time brainstorming what tool would be the best mode of delivery. The idea was to highlight existing technology hardware and how it could be used in the classroom… giving each piece a new lease on life and inspiring teachers to use the devices to their fullest capacity to support student learning and engagement.
App to Web: While I am familiar with Popplet Lite and have used the iPad app, I was not as familiar with the Popplet web app and its advanced features. It made a perfect presentation tool and the Youtube integration (not available in the app version – see large video excerpt below) was a nice perk. I also left the laptop/computer section open-ended so we could discuss and add ways teachers are currently using the devices during the meeting. I am hoping it serves a dual purpose of highlighting existing campus technology and a model for teachers to create presentations.
