I don’t usually work on printed materials for textbook companies (only digital materials such as videos and Power Points), but several years ago I was asked to create a student workbook. It was a new and interesting experience for me!
Apparently it was revised recently to create a new edition, and it came in the mail. Pretty cool having my name on something! I have created about a thousand professional videos for textbook companies, but they don’t have my name on them. I don’t mind because I really enjoy creating digital media. It allows me to continue teaching students all around the world, and I get to work from anywhere, including my sailboat!
I was asked by Livescribe if I would give my testimonial as a college instructor using the Livescribe pen for my math classes. I had so much fun making the video with the team!
Amazing how they can shrink 2 hours of “discussion” (with many retakes I might add!) into a minute and a half of produced video!
They interviewed 7 people in different professions to show how each of us enhances our work with the help of our Livescribe smartpen.
To see all 7 videos, go to the Livescribe Home Page and click on my photo on the bottom of the page. (OK, I share the photo with three other people, but I made the home page!)
I still own my original 1 GB Pulse and now the new Echo smartpen, and I am so thankful for having such great technology to teach with! I am also finding great ways to use my smarpens in everyday life, too!
I wrote an article for Community College Week magazine about how I use technology to enhance teaching and learning both inside and outside of my classes. I was excited to find out last week that they accepted my article and it was published recently!
To find the article online, you need to click on the Community College Week website, and then click on the green “Technology Update” image to download the PDF. The article I wrote starts on page 13.
