Google Palooza, Keep updates, Book club, instagram and more

During my Feburary vacation I continued to work on my professional learnig by doing the following:
  1. Presented fours sesssions a the MassCUE Google Palooza on Feb 23rd in Lunenburg for 110+ educators on the following topics:
    - The NEW Google Sites, Google Keep, Hyperdocs and Adobe Spark and Google Sites
    * Some tips I learned during the Google Demo Slam (kickyoutubevideo to download, quiet and gif to a video) I plan on trying out all three!
  2. Launch Book Clubs
    #launchbookchat Thursday evening discussing Chapters 3-5 of the book!
  3. Other items this week, I am learnig online from twitter about design thinking and how it applies to curriculum  connected with the Launch book!  Updating spring course offerings for grad classes and planning summer courses!
  4. Instagram - New features see video  and instagram blog
    Seeing we just opened instagram in our school I am anxious to use with the photography students.  I just saw on twitter that Instagram just announced this week that one post can have up to 1- photos or videos for a slideshow.  I need to explore how this could work and link to student portfolios! See vacation posts album... now to figure out how to get the embed code 
I plan to introduce photography students to this!
More options!
