NECC 2005 Information

For those of you who attended or are interested in the list of links to the items I included in my NECC 2005 presentation, "The Magic of Technology Gadgets for Educators", you may find them here:

The presentation was intended to be a light-hearted look back, but, more importantly, an eye-opener for teachers who will be thinking of very creative ways to use these devices to support teaching and learning.

One idea that I have been promoting is the use of a USB flash drive or MP3 player to minimize the number of students who don't have access to some software applications at home. You can read more about that here, in an article entitled SOAP on a Rope. Feel free to post your comments about the article and any other thoughts you have about devices in the classroom!
