Med Kharbach: 


This is the fifth guide I created in a series of several posts on how to tap into the educational potential of Google services. Today's topic is Google Images. This is probably among those most used services in education. Teachers and students use images for a variety of learning and teaching reasons. However, before  including images in any classroom project, students need to learn about copyright issues.

I enjoyed attending this symposium. The size was just right, about 800 with a wide variety of presentations and ideas.  This site provides you with a strong archive of those presentations. 


I always ask myself what is one strong 'take away' from all this exposure to emerging tech.  Honestly, very little of what I learned was new, but I was struck by the prediction that Gesture Based computing would be a major part of the near future.  


One more interesting technology to track!
