    Middle school lit circles: record parts of the story to hear the Ss voices, insert pictures connected to book and talk about those pictures
    Guided Math: create a ShowMe app video of a mini lesson for parents and students.
    Reading Nonfiction: take picture of things in the book and make notes (instead of sticky notes) for wondering, background knowledge, what features, what strategies,
    HS English: Instead of writing about tone, Ss read with inflection that reflect the tone of the piece, involve art in the discussion and talk about allusions.
    Students create a tutorial for new students entering the class or the grade
    Foreign language; short stories

    NOTE: TodaysMeet.com has been having problems all day today (8/16/2012). Most of the links to the chatrooms above should work, however, they either may not load, or, the room may not have been set up. If you see a message about 'creating' the room, that's ok, just change the drop-down for 'time to keep active' to ONE YEAR and proceed. You will have just activated the room for everyone! Thanks!

    Hi, everyone. Here are some of the slides from today's presentation. I demoed the web app: Nearpod.com and the iPad apps: Nearpod Student and Nearpod Teacher
    Before you build your Nearpod presentation, create a new account in the Nearpod Teacher app.
    {https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-UTfoXDAaRps/UC2NteFrAVI/AAAAAAAALOE/V4QyQnBDxco/s640/Notebook%252025.jpg}
    The purpose of the presentation was to introduce both the Nearpod app and Ignite presentations, and then demonstrate how to build Ignite presentations on the iPad to share with a class using Nearpod.
    I gave two Ignite presentations using a shortened student format:
    {https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-8Yv3omXAXM4/UC2N3OwbToI/AAAAAAAALOU/P3JAJ7qW9K0/s640/2012-08-16%252000.36.26.png}
    Then, I showed how to build the slides on an iPad. Slides can be created using any creative app on the iPad. Here are a few apps I like to use:
    {https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-qgFth7Z3x5E/UC2Si1A8b9I/AAAAAAAALO0/DVbloVgu9nI/s640/2012-08-16%252000.21.26.png}
    Paper by 53 - makes all your drawings look good.
    {https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-suagHb3kkDI/UC2SqXGFOpI/AAAAAAAALO8/beKNe05U-UQ/s640/2012-08-15%252023.35.27.png}
    Living Spaces - a simple, easy space planner. If you want to demonstrate anything on this topic, this is the app for you. (It's also a lot of fun to play with)
    {https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-eG72X4h2iIc/UC2O3LxW0KI/AAAAAAAALOc/u5JuPBTPlqo/s640/2012-08-16%252000.31.08.png}
    Comics Head - If you want your slides to look like cartoon panels, use this app. Lots of options for characters, backgrounds, and props.
    We also covered GoodNotes (seen in the title slide). The zoom box, fountain pen, and pdf annotation make this app well worth your time.
    Once your students have created 12 slides and have saved the images to the camera roll, export the pictures to your laptop. I use Dropbox to move pictures.
    {https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-JXdrvCKsaiI/UC2Se660qfI/AAAAAAAALOs/5K79lOq7Dls/s640/2012-08-16%252000.22.01.png}
    After the files have been moved to your laptop, open up iMovie (or a similar video editor), drop in the 12 images (turn off the Ken Burns pan & zoom), set each clip length to 15 seconds, and export the video file.
    {https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-tkBl2PaeRvY/UC2S84y4OKI/AAAAAAAALPU/qof0RQha43o/s800/Screen%2520Shot%25202012-08-16%2520at%252012.11.18%2520AM.png}
    Open up the Nearpod web app (nearpod.com), login to your account, and create a new presentation. Add a few stills to bookend your presentation, and upload your Ignite presentation videos as individual slides.
    {https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-80FFVufYBBY/UC2TC05dpwI/AAAAAAAALPc/0iyFWUtgpGA/s912/Screen%2520Shot%25202012-08-16%2520at%252012.12.15%2520AM.png}
    {https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-wAVKykKkY44/UC2TGSpBBjI/AAAAAAAALPk/J_Rl61uAsGk/s912/Screen%2520Shot%25202012-08-16%2520at%252012.12.59%2520AM.png}
    {https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-PjKxyPJ4Xcw/UC2TJEAYEDI/AAAAAAAALPs/63AaLQj5uis/s912/Screen%2520Shot%25202012-08-16%2520at%252012.16.24%2520AM.png}
    After the slides are all loaded, publish.
    When your students are ready to present, use the Nearpod Teacher account to load and control the presentation. Use the Nearod Student account for the students to view the presentations on their devices. Students can present from anywhere in the room, while the video with the images they created display on student iPads.
    {https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ETBxJtTZAxA/UC2S1yTyVUI/AAAAAAAALPM/OXpef2V7IKU/s640/2012-08-15%252022.44.28.png}
    Students access the presentation by typing in the pin number given on the Nearpod Teacher app when a presentation is loaded.
    And that's it!
