Keynote with Tom Borer

Why is it more engaging to show rather than tell? Why talk about the digestive system when we can take a video voyage through the digestive system? Vision dominates over other senses for acquiring perceptual information and we are wired to efficiently handle the large amount of visual information we deal with every day. You will learn how to screen capture, download videos from YouTube, SchoolTube, TeacherTube and many others, as well as become “Google Images Ninja.” Now mix it all together in Keynote!
