First, I can't thank Naomi Harm enough for encouraging me to attend and present there. I had the great honor of presenting w/ her which I never could've imagined in my wildest dreams. She is truly a rare gem in the educational technology field and I owe her so much.
Also, I'd like to thank everyone who attended my presentation as well as all the people I met. There are so many names that I can't even big to list them (of course I forgot almost all of them) but the few that stand out are Tami Brass and Chad Kafka. These two super nice people are really pioneers in their field and a great resource for people to follow.
I learned so many things that I've only seen talked about but never really used such as:
- back channel chats (http://www.chatzy.com/advanced.htm), a great tool for teachers and those presenting a large crowd of people
- polling in real-time (http://www.polleverywhere.com/), imagine using phones/mobile devices to text your answer (a la American Idol)
