Today was a stimulating day! Had a chance to present at the Massachusetts General Hospital Lecture Series and share Web 2.0, emerging technologies and engaging features built into Word that support students with reading and written language struggles.
It was invigorating to work with a group of educators who were unfamiliar with these tools and were so eager to learn all they could. Among other things, I showed them "Did You Know?" by Karl Fisch, redone by Scott McCleod, "Animal School" and "The Machine is Us/ing Us." I think there was a seismic shift in the room by the end of the presentation.
