Yesterday marked the second annual Edubloggercon East. We met, thanks to the Alan November team, at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel from 9:00 to 5:00. Our agenda was packed. I’m planning to blog about the session that I led on backchannels (Jeff Lebow UStreamed it and it is archived at EdTechTalk.com), but I need to meet with Liz Davis to finish preparing for our sessions at BLC09

The sites from the Web 2.0 Smackdown (thanks go to Steve Guditus for taking such great notes) are listed here:

Lee Kolbert shared bubblecomment.com

Joyce Valenza took us to Google to demonstrate Google Squared, the Wonder Wheel and “Show Options” in Google

Andrew Connelly from Glogster talked about the benefits of the Education version of Glogster at http://www.glogster.com/edu/ – check it out – up to 200 student accounts per teacher

Jim Walker shared the Firefox add-on Fireshot for taking screenshots and easily editing them

Raju Gupta showed us Socrato!

Andy Pethan shared Aardvark

Karen Janowski shared the Pulse Smartpen by LiveScribe

Emily Valenza shared Instructables

Lisa Parisi shared ImageChef for generating your own images with text on them – so cool!!

Beth Lloyd shared Xtranormal for taking your text and making it into a movie – take a look, it’s so much more than that.

Kelley Connoly shared Stixy

We took a look at YoLink

Darren Kuropatwa – talked about how WolframAlpha will change homework. (Students will have to explain why WolframAlpha used the steps it did to solve the problem.)

Thanks go to everyone who attended both physically and virtually – it was a fantastic day!
