TGIF -- Interest in apps exceeds capacity, FridayLive

Read below for TGIF with links, or you can view TGIF on the Web...Click here

Tenth issue, Volume Six

TLT Group TGIF 3.12.2013           
From TLT Group World Headquarters

The "app guys," Stephen Kaufman [and a new 3rd partner because Tim has a conflict] Aaron Carpenter from Ashland University, are back by popular demand (March 15th). Here's how popular the demand is, there are already 250+ people registered. Unfortunately we just learned we will probably not be able to expand our Adobe Room capacity (100 logins) for this event we will give TLT Group members priority.                    

If your institution has an institutional subscription, everyone affiliated is eligible for a one-year free individual membership, but you must activate that membership online individually.

As you probably know, FridayLive! is offered free to anyone who registers in advance, and the digital recordings of the sessions are routinely made available shortly after the events for free, but only to  members of the TLT Group.

Since there is so little time before March 15, we urge that you join as a member right away.  If you can't do that, or if you prefer to initiate or renew your institution's annual subscription, we will treat registrants for FridayLive! March 15 as members if you send an email to RIGHT AWAY pledging  your intention to have your institution subscribe.

If more than 100 members want to login, we'll make sure that any members who are excluded will have access to the digital archive within a few days.   Non-members will have to wait for the next Ap Guys

session unless we create some other alternative.  As usual, we will make available at no fee fully public copies of the chat text transcript and other info from the session via our blog at and links to URLs via our DIIGO Repository at

    We're back! In this session will be showing some of the best apps for education across multiple types of devices. It doesn't matter if you use an iPad, Android device, or even Google Chrome, more often than not, there is in fact an "app for that".

    We will provide examples of fun assignments to conduct using apps, and also show some of the best ways to share an iPad screen or Android screen in your classroom. (Hint: It's not using a Document Camera!)

    Get some new ideas for your classroom and share some of your ideas of how apps can be used in education.

    PLEASE LOGIN BY 1:45 Eastern to ensure that you have a "seat."

    We have been participating in the EDCMOOC, eLearning & Digital Cultures MOOC sponsored by the University of Edinburgh. The MOOC has concluded but the learning continues. The TLT sMOOChers talked with Amy Woodgate the University of Edinburgh MOOC coordinator on March 8th.  The conversation was so lively that Amy agreed to return on April 12th.  This link will take you to the  list of questions that emerged. You can join in.

      Encourage. Enable. Engage.
