Weekly Links (weekly)

Posted from Diigo. The rest of my favorite links are here.

Tour Creator

I tried out the new Google Tour Creator and found it to be very user-friendly and pretty intuitive to use. I made a tour of my recent trip to Iceland. Definitely putting this into summer professional development.

I used Richard Byrne's video tutorial and Andrew Caffrey's directions. You need to have the tool turned on in your school domain if you are using this with students.

EdTechTeam Student Summit

I had the opportunity to join the team of the Nokomis Tech Sherpas and Kern Kelly for a Student Summit in Dallastown, PA. The learners that attended were in Grade 6. They had 4 sessions and rotated through them. The sessions were on Creating with Code, Coding with Drones, Create your own Virtual World and All About You - Coding in Google Spreadsheets.

I also had a tutorial on CoSpaces and TinkerCad from the Sherpas and learned about drones that can show you where they are going through a virtual reality headset. Amazing!

Thanks to our hosts for sharing their beautiful school with us and for arranging an amazing learning experience for their students.
