state computer teachers’ conference about using Moodle for discussions. It was nerve-wracking to plan carefully so that I could be sure that the technology would work right (it did).
I thought I’d have extra time left over, but instead ran out of time just as I was finishing. There were lots of good questions, from concerns that kids can post before teachers can check what they post (yes, they can – just like kids can say inappropriate things in the face-to-face classroom) to "how-to" sorts of questions.
What I didn’t expect: it was fun. It’s a blast to talk about what happens with your students in your classroom, organized in a way that can help other teachers.
I posted resources on Scribd, which meant I didn’t have to drag around a lot of hand-outs. http://www.scribd.com/doc/68072602/Presentation-Resources-CECA-about-Moodle-Discussions
