I’ll be at ISTE‘s annual conference in a few weeks. I still have to finalize what I will say/show at my presentation, “Collaborating with Google Apps in the 21st Century Classroom.” I’m equally proud and petrified that my session is sold out. I called ISTE in a panic to find out how many seats they assigned for my talk – 108!

I’ll be at their space on the Expo floor for two hours a day, 30 minutes of which will include a demonstration of how I use yolink and some of their partner services: Creative Commons, SweetSearch, and EasyBib. I’m particularly proud of my lesson’s title, License to Cull with Creative Commons. Get it? Yolink scans a web search or a specific web page for keywords. Multiple keywords are individually color-coded, so visual (and/or impatient) learners can quickly scroll through paragraphs on a website to visibly locate those keywords. It’s easy, powerful, and free!
