This was a session during the EduBloggerCon, Hosted by Vicki Davis.  In Arizona at the Classroom 2.0 conference we called it “lightening sessions” but it is where anybody can get up and demo an application from the Web 2.0 that they really like.  Everybody gets only 3 minutes to get up, do the demo, and show the application on the web.  Not alot of time!!!!  🙂  This was an hour of fun!!  So many great tools.  I am going to post my notes here.  I did what I could, but they went so fast it was hard to get it all.  What I did get was the links.  So at the very least you can go to the links yourself and check things out!  Here you go!

SmackDown Session:  This is a session where folks got up and shared a favorite web 2.0 tool.  They each got 3 minutes.  ONLY.

Ring with Laminated Tags

This is an idea Low Tech for PD:  When you are teaching something new.  Have a ring with a laminated tag ready to put on it.  On the back, there are names of “go to” people on them so that when they need some support, they can look on the back and find a coaches name and number.
