Less than 1 week until the first HOA!

A few weeks ago I shared through Google+ that I was hosting my first Google Hangout on Air. Well, it's officially less than one week away! We'll be talking about all kinds of technology integration stuff including upcoming conferences, conference proposal deadlines, as well as cool stuff that is going on. If you are interested in watching, just come join the event! Or, even better, if you are doing something cool that you'd like to share with us, please let me know! My goal is to bring in a teacher/integrator from K-5, 6-8, and 9-12 to make it a well rounded program. Check out the event page for the agenda. I'm super excited/nervous, but am looking forward to getting it going.

Keynote Interactivity (and my 200th post)

When I talked with teachers about Nearpod last week, there was a teacher at the highschool who really wants to keep his animations within Keynote while having the interactivity like Nearpod . I told him that I'd look into it to see what was possible. Short story: I'm not having any luck at all.

Build with Chrome (Lego Building Time!)

If you are like me, you spent countless hours when you were young building with legos . If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
