Feeling Googley at the NJECC Annual Conference

March 15, 2010

This will be the third year I present at the NJECC Annual Conference. This year’s theme is “Teacher as Learner” and Will Richardson is delivering the Keynote. The lineup of sessions is phenomenal with topics on music technology, using technology to assist English Language Learners, Google Apps, Virtual Worlds, and many other uses of hardware, software, web 2.0 applications and the concepts behind using them to improve teaching and learning in the classroom.

My session, This is Not Your Grandmother’s Google, is described in the program as:

It’s time to go beyond Google.com. Discover Google’s Wonder Wheel, Similar Images, Insights for Search, Custom Search Engines, and Language Tools and learn how to find resources effectively and efficiently.

Many of the resources I will be sharing during our session:

Of course it always depends on who attends, what questions are asked and what our needs are. We’ll be using the hashtag #NJECC tomorrow if you would like to follow the conference. I’m looking forward to seeing many familiar faces there and having the chance to make the acquaintance of some NJ educators that I have not yet had the chance to meet.

    Wow! I really enjoyed watching the video about google! Very funny! But it’s definitely true. As a student at the University of South Alabama, I use Google multiple times each day to assist me with research, and you really can find ANYTHING. It’s definitely the search engine of my choice! Thanks for sharing!

    I LOVED the video! It was hilarious! I think it’s so funny though how the video is true! I am also a student at South Alabama and use Google a lot too. I hope your conference went well!

    Cute video! I think ill be singing it in class this Thursday. The message is clear though. Google is the best search engine around. I use if for just about anything, my fingers are trained to type it in even when I am trying to visit another site. I will be showing this video to my teach, because he is crazy about Google.

    The video was a great start to that article. Now I’ll have that song in my head all day. As an online teacher I also use Google to check for plagiarism, what a great tool!
