Smackdown at #EBC11

These are the sites that attendees shared at EdubloggerCon ISTE 2011. Each participant had two minutes to share the tool. I have to admit, many of these tools were new to me, so I am looking forward to jumping in.

Dan CallahanJoanne Najarian and I facilitated the “Ultimate Web 2.0 Smackdown” and were joined by several educators including Karen Janowski and Valerie Beck as we spent no more than 3 minutes demonstrating the following tools:

Web 2.0 Smackdown at TechForum

Source: http://members.more.net/

I was fortunate to present with Adam BelowHowie DiBlasi and David Andrade today at Tech Forum NY. We shared a Google Doc at the morning session of the Web 2.0 Smackdown.

After the lunch break,  Adam and I facilitated a session giving the participants time to show what tools they feel are useful in the classroom. The ideas started flooding in before we even met. They were coming in via Twitter, suggestions from the the morning group and folks that came to say hi after we were finished.

Here is the list of tools that was generated in our afternoon gathering:

  1. Evernote
  2. Rapportive

Not only did Adam and I have fun sharing all of these tools with the attendees, but it was great to have folks share out what they like and how they use the tools for productivity and to help improve teaching and learning in the classroom.
