Bright Ideas in Teaching with Technology

It’s time to revive the BITTs. Last year we had a number of BITTs, you can see the recordings here. Using elluminate from 3:45 – 4:30 there will be a brief introduction to a technology idea with classroom applications. The idea is to keep the sessions short, relevant and recorded so you can access them again later.

Tuesday April 12th – Intermediate Twitter (Tweetdeck, URL shortening, chats, lists)

Tuesday April 26th – Video Streaming (Learn 360, Discovery Education and Access Learning)

Tuesday May 3rd – To be determined (see below)

Please help me come up with new BITT topics by completing the following form.
