Renewing is the hardest thing...

Well, I'm finally posting another tech topic. If you haven't been here in a while, you probably noticed the Windows Media Player to the left. It is for me to post live videos of myself talking about important edtech things. I've have been a very busy man. Here is a sampling:

Windows Media Encoder -Setup a webcam stream in ten minutes
I found this post because I have a new webcam and want to use it after my mother comes back from Korea. I also found other ways to use it in the classroom and for distance learning. Check out my Google Reader column. Thanks Claire!

I guess I should say what I've been using my web cam for... SKYPE!
I would go on and on about it but I'll let others do it for me...Anne Murch and Jeremy Wright.
Thanks a million.

Teachers love SMART Boards - Too many to list
I love this man... I mean the work he has put together to help teachers be successful in the classroom with SMART Boards. If you don't do anything else, do this check out his blog!

Google Reader - Did I mention this already?

It has been awesome to figure out RSS feeds. Since I have a Google email account, I figured that I would go ahead and see what Reader was about. Boy, was I in for a big surprise.
Quick back story- As a Technology Staff Trainer, I read so many different blogs and kinds of blogs, but had no way to keep up on them all until I found Reader. Here is a screen shot for you.

I have over 80 subscriptions. Many of them are Education and Technology based, but I have others that I read also. If you'd like to expand your professional network and knowledge of education, educational technology or just like to keep up on what is going on in the world, let me know and I'll add you as a friend.

I believe this is long enough. I'll do better in the future, I ... I'd better not promise. I'll try.

Keep reading, keep learning, and keep applying.

    Thank you for linking to my post on skype. I really enjoyed reading Jeremy's as well and then realised it was in 2005 but none of the impact of that message would have changed.
    As to my google reader, I have not been game to look at that for a month now as I know it is overflowing and spare time has been against me. But, again, I agree, I do like using google reader.
