My Visual Notes can be played back like a movie since I drew them in (the old) Brushes App
I wrote and received an Illinois Computer Educator professional development grant to attend MACUL, the Michigan Association for Computer Users in Learning Conference, in Grand Rapids, MI. I put in a proposal to present with my friend Janine Campbell, middle school art teacher from Byron Center, MI, and we were accepted! It was an honor to have our presentation accepted at a conference of over 3,500 attendees. We presented on student created movies to teach curriculum. I met some of my Twitter PLN face to face including @karlyb @jesscrandell @thenerdyteacher @rushtonh @gcouros There were many more I follow that I didn't get to connect with (or only briefly) and many more I hope to connect with from now on. On Friday's opening session, I tried visual note taking and shared my drawing on Twitter. It was retweeted a bunch of times. It's funny how twitter can make you feel like you're connected even when the crowd is huge and you know so few people. Below is my #viznote drawn in the Brushes App.
But wait, there's more. I saw this keynote at ICE two weeks ago & wrote this reflection.
Janine and I have been making movies with our students for years. She shared her perspective and strategies as a middle school teacher and I shared mine as an elementary school teacher. If you want to learn more, we have our presentations online:

or attend our presentation at the NAEA conference in San Diego to learn from us in person. One thing George Couros suggested in his Teachers on Twitter session is that you should make a Storify of your tweets of the feedback you receive on your presentation. Janine and I encouraged our crowd to tweet something they learned from our session and awarded an @iPevo product to the first person to tweet out first on our behalf. Congrats again to Jessica for winning the iPevo wireless keyboard and case!
