I’m presenting twice at this year’s OETC conference. Along with my presentations, I am exciting to connect & learn from others along with sporting my new LED name badge!

Yes, it looks like my old one, but this one has a new battery and will last the entire day!

I have a chat server set up to play around with at chat.eduk8.me. It’s one of my Eduk8me Labs which means it’s not backed up so don’t put anything important there that you’re going to want to keep. Come on over and say hi!

Google Slides has become my Swiss army knife when I need to get things done. This presentation will cover everything from tips on creating and laying out slides & objects to merging certificates & using it with Google Forms for entry/exit tickets. I’m not much of a guaranteer, but I’m pretty sure there will be at least one new thing for even the most advanced Google Slides user.

The presentation and all of the support files will be available here. I’ve also added a link to the Sir Links-a-Lot extension which I talked about. It makes creating the different URLs to Google documents a breeze.

Supporting our ADHD stu… Squirrel!

The first scientific paper on ADHD was written back in 1798, the idea and concepts of ADHD has been around with us for a very long time. This session will cover what ADHD is, how it effects the students in your classroom, and give you some ideas on how you can support your neurodivergent students.

I’ve posted the presentation, which is viewable online. There is also a PDF with all of my (very) raw notes, and a PDF of the slides. The presentation was written and created in Obsidian with the Advanced Slides plugin. It was an interesting experience and I’ll probably us it again for non-technical talks. Placing items on a slide exactly where you want is not a fun experience. However, writing out all of your thoughts and then placing three hyphens to start a new slide works well.

No squirrels were harmed in the production of this presentation. Also, no squirrels will be in attendance, so don’t get your hopes up if you wanted to see one.
