5 #GR8Finds #ThisWeek at #KSUncon and #KSEdTech Conference 06.14.15



I learned A LOT at the 2015 Kamehameha EdTech Conference and the #KSUncon! Reconnected with a lot of cool Hawaii educators, and met a few new cool ones. It was awesome!


Here are 5 #GR8Finds to report:


1. Free Online Learning at GCFLearnFree from GoodWill. A plethora of tutorials that are easy to follow. H/T +Tomoko Yokooji


2. Wonderopolis. H/T Rachelle GalangLearning can be fun!



3. I already blogged about science teacher Stephen Ritz's keynote → Over-the-Top KeyNote by an Over-the-Top Teacher. So inspiring!


Check out this Green Bronx Machine teaser.






4. We LAUGHED throughout Destin Sandlin's keynote, 


with Destin's serious charge to "See the World Differently". 

I subscribed to his +SmarterEveryDay YouTube Channel that's putting his kids through college -- a great success story!

Here's the Backwards Bicycle Video that went viral.



5. I learned how to make a Scribblebot at +Michelle Carlson Colte and +Rachel Armstrong's "Become a Maker" session. Check out their presentation here.  

My Scribblebot

was definitely not as good as 

Celeste's Scribblebot 
video

See instructions to make your own Scribble Machine from Instructables here.

Mahalo again to the @KSEdTech folks who planned Hana Pono and #KSUncon
