Converting Files to iPod on a Windows OS

This pdf file is from the Florida Center for Instructional Technology. We created it so that Windows OS users could create vodcasts. It shows how to use a free converter called Videora. Several people asked for it in the School Collection Training.

Adobe Education Leader Institute 2007

After my first day at the summer institute, I find myself totally regretting having missed last years. Presentations by Adobe experts and other AELs (Adobe Education Leaders) “captivated” (no pun) my attention. I think I learned more about Web 2.0 in one afternoon than I have from days of reading and experimenting with these tools. Kathy Schrock has opened my mind to the value of integrating them into K-12 Curriculum. Now I can not wait to try out some of these things with professional development in Florida.
Special thanks to Jack and Megan for their flexibility!!!!
