Why not?

Diigo - Develop / Expand your PLN
Presented by: Phil Taylor
Did you miss 'Getting Connected' at the end of January? John Evans & Andy McKiel, hosted a wonderful hands-on session on two social networking tools, Twitter & Diigo. This TIN session will explore some of the powerful features of Diigo from a new user perspective. Diigo is an exciting social bookmarking tool to develop/expand your presonal learning network. Diigo offers two services in one: a research and collaborative research, and a knowledge tool with a focus on sharing community and social content.

Google Apps Education Edition
Presented by: Shawn Kleebaum
Ask not what you can do for Google but what Google Apps can do for you! Google Apps Education Edition offers free communication, collaboration and publishing tools, including email accounts on your school's domain. Google Apps Education Edition includes Start Page, Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Sites, and Google Docs. You can select any combination of the available tools and services and customise them with your school's logo, colour scheme and content. Manage your users through a web-based control panel. Best of all, it's all hosted by Google, so there's no hardware or software to download, install or maintain. This session will demonstrate the benefits of getting started with Google Apps Education Edition.

MARVIN - Bringing Your Stories To Life
Presented by: Steve Dudar
Marvin is an award winning training, education and presentation authoring application using 3D Avatars to communicate important information and stories to audiences. Marvin uses a multi-sensory approach, integrating real voice, computer generated voice, written text, images, video and PowerPoint presentations to quickly create presentations that reflect cultural, lingual and social attributes of the audience. This demonstration will show how easy it is to create basic Marvin scripts, change the language and the character in order to customize the message for the audience.
