eSpots

Please also see this as an opportunity to start thinking about what small gems you would like to share in either of the eSpot sessions.
Those of you who are new to the conference, eSpots are short, quick opportunities to share something you have found that might be of interest to the group, something useful that doesn’t require a whole workshop to explore. In the past this has been things like gapminder, photosynth, Studywiz, Fences, Shape Collage, Ustream, Bit.ly, SD Copy, Super, Jing, Animoto, The Wayback Machine, zamzar, wolfram alpha, Xtranormal, ScreenToaster, eXe Learning, Twitter, Make Beliefs Comics…

History:

A few years ago, Nicole (Nicki) Christensen mentioned to the committee (at that time) that she was really enjoying TED talks, small presentations that showcased or demonstrated something and left attendees at TED free to explore on their own at a later date.

With this in mind, eSpots were introduced for the first time in 2007 at the conference hosted by PLC Sydney.

These eSpots have seen different formats.
Those of you familiar with the concept will know that last year we had two espot opportunities: one that broke out into short (20 minute) workshops to explore some of these ideas, and another that was just a show and tell.

Owing to our plan for day 2, this year the eSpots will only be the shorter Show and tell style.

Got an idea? Share it at an espot. Just see a member of the committee beforehand.

If you're unfamiliar with TED, this is a fascinating TED talk from 2008 that ties in really nicely with our Teach Less, Learn More theme.
