Upstate Technology Conference 2010 Day One

UTC2010 Today begins the Upstate Technology Conference in Greenville, SC. I’m so excited because every year I come back with so much information that is useful. I also love connecting with so many people that I talk to all year long so this almost feels like a reunion!

Here are some of the sessions that I’m interested in:

“Movie Maker
Windows Movie Maker is free editing software that is already preloaded on most computers. In this workshop you’ll learn how to edit StreamlineSC video clips, including importing video and pictures, adding special effects, text and music.

Don't read to me - A presentation on presentations - version 2.0
This is a totally updated look at how to design great presentations that leave your audiences craving more. Learn how to apply cutting edge research into presentation design and make great presentations that audiences will love.

Assistive technologies for those who learn differently
As part of the consideration of education's rapidly changing, technology-intensive world, Mary will provide: information on new assistive technologies that can help students in the learning process; examples of integration of technology into the classroom; and a list of available assistive technology products. AT addresses student issues of organization and memory, writing, reading, listening and math. About Mary: Mary has presented at several conferences including The Academy of Orton Gillingham Fellows annual conferences, SC Associations of School Librarians state conferences, SC Association of Independent Schools Teachers’ conference, and SC Branch of International Dyslexia Association’s fall conference. She has a BA in education from the University of Kentucky, an MLIS from the University of SC, an M.Ed. in Technology from Lesley University and is designated a SCISA Master Teacher. She has been the librarian / media specialist at Trident Academy in Mount Pleasant for the last nine years where she is piloting an assistive technology program.

Photo Story, Audacity, and Picnik... Oh My!

Photo Story (an easy to use presentation tool), Audacity (a free-cross-platform sound editor), and Picnik (a free online photo editing program) are easy and FREE resources to help you create eye-catching and powerful presentations and lessons like a pro. “

I will share my notes when I get back! Have a great day!
