So after attending FETC this past week, I think it’ll blogging about 30 posts just to share all the information that I learned. Such a wonderful experience, I would suggest that educators around the area attend this event even if for a day to absorb all the energy and ideas that are available.

So at the start of the conference they have an event called TECH Share LIVE where a panel of 4 experts: Kathy Schrock, Hal Davidson, Leslie Fisher and Adam Bellow’s discuss their favorite tech discoveries for this coming year.

Here is one of my favorites from the Tech Share LIVE.

All the presentation can be found though on Edmodo

What makes something a Wink product? They are not just more things for you to think about, but things that actually think about you. Products that are smarter because of the power of the Internet and the simplicity of mobile apps.
