This is a collection of the best resources and and applications I came across over the past three days at the 5th National Leading Digital Schools Conference. Many of the apps and clips were presented in the workshops (and are included in the blog posts on those presentations). Unfortunately I did not get the chance to attend all workshops, so I have also included some from those I did not attend. Thank you to all the presenters for a great insight, direction and inspiration. I have also tried to include links to some of the presentations provided.
Please take some time to explore the links, apps and videos in this post and let me know if you would like any more info or assistance with trying some of the applications/approaches… ENJOY!
