Even More!

What do YOU want to cover in "Even More"?
Vote Early and Vote Often!

We've set up a Google Moderator to drive this session. Please only submit tools you'd like to discuss with regards to education (for example Picasa, Sketchup, or Google+). 

The tools pictured to the left have not been covered elsewhere in the agenda. Please vote for the tool you'd most like to learn more about - and please feel free to submit "even more" tools if you like. The top 5 tools will be selected as the topic of a round table discussion during the "Even More" segment of the day, which will be run in the "jigsaw" format (where one representative from each team learns about each tool and then returns to their team to share).

As you explore the tool, answer these questions:
  • What is it? How does it work? What's special about it?
  • How might it be useful for educators and students?
  • What else do you want to learn about it?We recommend setting up shared collaborative notes in a Doc, and then posting a link in the comment section below.
Finally, you will have approximately 2-3 minutes to share what you've learned when you return to your your own team. (Each individual should share in the 20 minutes allotted.) 

Google Moderator was developed as a crowd-sourcing tool for use inside of Google. During large meetings, only a few minutes were allotted for questions. Random individuals were selected to ask questions which may or may not have been relevant to the group as a whole.

Moderator is a tool that allows individuals to submit questions, ideas, or topics. Others can view the submitted ideas and vote for their favorites. Over time, the most popular ideas move to the top. These are the items that have the greatest relevance for the group as a whole.
