Fun, friends and FABULOUS resources at #TCEAtots!

Pin It This was my third year to attend and also to present at TCEA's Tots and Technology in Galveston, Texas.  I think this year was my favorite year as an attendee (and a presenter - YAY for Internet!).  :)  I was able to go to several AMAZING sessions and pick up some really great resources.  I definitely encourage you to go check out #TCEAtots and see what everyone was saying.  Here were some of my favorite moments/resources/ideas...

  • Here is an awesome site PACKED with ideas and resources from TCEA's own Monica Martinez.
  • A site I've forgotten about - so glad to be reminded of it! Excellent videos with "Wonder Words" vocab and "Test Your Knowledge" quiz!  http://wonderopolis.org/
  • Pecha Kucha http://www.pechakucha.org (create 20 image-only slides set to advance every 20 sec.)
  • UH-MAZING Pinterest page from Pearland ISD!!! Definitely follow them! http://pinterest.com/feedthepenguins/
  • Adventure to Fitness - students excercise while learining a topic! Free for teachers! http://www.adventuretofitness.com
  • Hover Zoom - awesome Chrome extension shared by my buddy Kristy Vincent (@bigpurplehat)!
  • Best quote of the conference - also by @bigpurplehat - "HEY! Tech Director...you have every right to live in a cave and keep using IE, but don't take the kids with you!" {GO #CHROME!}
  • These are downright TERRIBLE...but oh, so funny! DEmotivational posters ... http://www.despair.com/demotivators.html
  • GEO GREETINGS!  These are SO COOL!  The surface of the earth holds a message for you...
  • Amazing list of random, awesome sites from TxTechnoGeeksRUs! Love the Wolfram Alpha ideas at the end! 

Ok, that's really just the tip of the iceberg, but at least it might tempt you to go check out the #TCEAtots hashtag.  :)  I have also added my 3 presentations to the {Presentations} tab at the top of my blog.  :)  Hope to see you guys at ISTE!!
