SlideJockey is a new, non-lineair way of giving your presentations.

I haven't tried it as of yet but I will. Typically I post new tools upon discovery, test them, and remove the ones that are "dogs"...there have been a few...the good news is that this is a free app.

Earth is running out of metal needed to create smart phones, ipads, etc. | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
the chances are that you are reading this article through a screen laced with one of the rarest metals on Earth: indium. And analysts are warning that global supplies of indium could be exhausted as soon as 2017. So how will we live without the gadgets that we have come to depend on?

Bill Gates on Flipped Classrooms, iPads, EdTech, education reform and more

Bill Gates on Flipped Classrooms, iPads, EdTech, education reform and more | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

In the seventh segment, he talks about iPads and Flipped classrooms.

Ken Morrison's insight:
Ken's Key takeaway: Although his 'top down' approach to teacher PD sounds a bit abrasive in this story, I do like some of his ideas on teacher training and flipped classrooms when shared in full context in that interview that was aired that week.  

Here is one quote from this article:  "You take at least 2 percent of the teachers, train them very well and have them do structured visitations," he said. "And they tell the teacher, 'OK, you were good at this, but you didn't engage these kids very well. You didn't create discussion here. You didn't explain why a kid would wanna know this thing,' and help those teachers improve."
