Whether you or your students are looking to bookmark websites, share notes, or just keep track of your last oil change you’ll be sure to find many uses for Evernote to fit into your life too!




The Art of Screencasting: “Teacher-On-Demand” is now possible!
WBM427

Type:  90 min. Ticketed Workshop (additional fee, pre-registration required)

Description:  The concept of the “flipped classroom” wouldn’t be possible without screencasting. Learn how to create screencasts on iPads, Windows or Mac. Technology Teacher Rob Zdrojewski has "flipped" his direct instruction into screencasting so his students have anytime, anywhere access to classroom instruction. When combined with an online learning platform like Edmodo, teachers now have the ability to create a 24/7 learning environment, perfect for keeping absent students up to date and fostering a more one on one teacher to student classroom.  View a video case study and published article about Rob's use of screencasting with his students.
