"It's All Geek to Me: Add-Ons, Extensions, and Apps" for the CUE Learning Revolution Online Summit 2014
I just presented at the CUE Learning Revolution Online Summit, the First Online Summit Featuring Google for Education. Educators and edtech gurus from around the globe participated and shared some tremendous enrichment. Exciting times! [If you click into the actual presentation you'll see the speaker notes]
In a few weeks I will present this Learning Station Session at ISTE 2013 in San Antonio. Here's a sneak peek:

Free Real-World Tech Tutorials
This is a new resource from Edudemic's Jeff Dunn and appears to be a Khan-Academy-like free video tutorial system on real-world skills. Here's a sampling on social media tutorials. The list is small but it is growing. I dare you to walk away without learning something new!
I'm excited to take my first course. If you try it out, let me know what you think!
Cool Google Stuff
I'm going over this document with a few teachers today who want to know more of what I learned at the recent Google Teacher Academy. It's by no means comprehensive but it represents a few recent favorites. I dare you to walk away without something you're itching to try.
Some are fun but most have strong (and fun) potential to improve student learning in exciting ways. For example, Voice Comments Chrome extension allows you to leave easy audio feedback right within Google Docs -- now that has some powerful potential for student reflection and feedback.
Wish you could join us!
This is a professional development plan I created that outlines SMART goals and expected outcomes, NETS for Teachers standards, learning activities, and how to measure student outcomes. I can’t wait to give it a try.

In Nepali, didi means older sister and is often used to describe one who works for you, one you respect, one who walks beside you on your journey. I work hard to bring teachers, parents, and students the best educational technology tools out there that educate, engage, and empower. Enjoy!
