App of the Week: Kidblog
Kidblog is a wonderful FREE student blogging platform. I have recently had the opportunity to try out their new mobile app and it is STUNNING!
Simply put, edcampNJ was AWESOME! Over 200 educators packed Linwood Middle School for what was to be the mother of all FREE professional development conferences in the state of New Jersey. EdcampNJ featured 2 #Satchat programs, over 25 great breakout sessions, an iPad giveaway and much more. For more information: www.edcampNJ.org
Interview with Don Wettrick
Don Wettrick is an amazing educator in Indiana. He is a high school Broadcast and Innovations teacher who recently found out about the transformative power of Twitter and is quickly learning how Social Media can not only give him a voice, but empower his students to share their voices with the world. I sat down with Don to discuss what is calling his #TwitterExperiment.
