    This webinar was very helpful! I wish I could have been in the room with the presenter so that I could see him actually “use” the technology. I would have had lots of “show-me-how-to-do-this” questions. :-) I like that he first emphasized using the technology that you have already. Begging your school administrator for new “stuff” might not be the best route to take. Also, I really like that he suggested using Best Practices to make the lessons more interactive (i.e. using links, varioius fonts, images, etc.) by imbedding them into your presentations. For example, if you have a video to show with a PowerPoint lesson, imbed the video in the PP presentation. Don’t open a new window for video to play seperately. I wish the session could have been longer! I learned so much. Thank you for this valuable information! :-)
