  • Devin “ storage in the cloud ” free site that downloads a folder on your computer also a smart-phone and tablet app The first 2 GB of space is free, but as you share with others and refer them to Dropbox, you increase your “free” space.
  • Organization tool to keep your notes, documents iPad app that allows you to take notes – save or email to yourself Set up an account for free and access anywhere Anyone checked out Skitch? New component that allows you to use annotation, shapes and sketches while you are writing instead of using words for all Think about implications for student use to save notes and be mobile!

  • Lisa Today’s Meet is a great site to use as a back-channel or side conversation during instruction, meetings, or even with huge crowds during a conference. The livestream conversation can be used with as small as a handful and as large as 400. The audience can use Today’s Meet to share resources, ask questions, and deepen the discussion. Keep in mind that if you are presenting with a powerpoint on a projector, you will need an additional screen, computer, and projector for maximum capabilities to enhance your presentation and discussion. If presenting as a team, we suggest having one person monitor the Today’s Meet while others are presenting.
  • Lisa Most popular and secure online sharing site of files FREE – use the free version Have about a week to download it Email confirming file was sent Any format can be sent Folders to save your files, record of what has been sent Can sinc with all mobile devices
  • Lisa LnkedIn has always been marketed to the non-educational, “business” world growing expanse of groups and connectivity, more education leaders are using it think social networking for professionals has 164 million users and that number grows significantly daily we recommend you use it, not to connect with others, but to access information, resources, and support from a national and international audience. GROUPS area Great for HR folks in districts
  • took some time to resonate in the educational world visually-rich social site with women’s attire, crafting, or food recipes, there are an emerging array of applications for school leaders for example, a number of “boards” have been created that assemble useful resources that are easy to navigate and “re-pin”  for future access one of our favorites is the ASCD site ( ) that includes boards on professional development, common core state standards, and other high-impact topics.  
  • Lisa download videos directly from YouTube and embed them into presentations or run them from your laptop. How simple is it? Just paste in the video’s url/link, allow it access to your computer, and download it as an MP4 to your desktop The best part about downloading the video and embedding it into a presentation is that you no longer need to worry about having access to the internet or during a presentation to run a video
