Workshop organization made easy!

Our NAIS workshop (W17. Re-Thinking Technology Leadership) was planned in only 2 synchronous meetings. Organizing a three-hour workshop, while living in 4 different regions, has its challenges. However with this group of dedicated professionals and electronic tools it was fun! We used Google Docs, Prezi, Wimba, You Tube, cell phones, and Poll Everywhere to create our agenda, resources, interactive pieces and run through the presentation together… all while sitting in our school offices. The conversations we had were incredibly rich and the collaborative experience very positive. Imagine what a great experience it would be for students to do the same with other students from around the globe!
