I’m in the middle of two weeks of relatively intense workshop activity and realized I haven’t been sharing my workshop wikis here lately. So, here are the agendas (with links to everything I mention and materials if applicable) for each of the recent workshops that I have permission to share:
Sketchcasting – This workshop was based on the latest tool I found to share with teachers using Tablet PCs. In essence, sketchast.com is a web-based sketching program that is actually responsive enough to work well with a Tablet PC pen and which allows users to save and share their sketches online, complete with narration. It’s like being able to save what happens on the whiteboard – erase the board and keep going as many times as you like during your narration.

Meebo announces new features and partners: “First off, they have introduced a developer API for their Meebo Rooms product. This will allow people to integrate a Meebo Room into their own Web site. Meebo has said that this API will “…further accelerate the widespread adoption of Meebo rooms.” Meebo is hoping that Web site owners will take this as an opportunity to build a community.”
**Seriously, I’ve been using Meebo since it came out and it is growing up nicely….be sure to check out the “Room” feature…
Make3D turns your vacation photos into 3D worlds: “Ever wish you could recreate the effect of those neat multilens 3D cameras without having to buy the hardware? Lucky for you there’s some cool 3D technology coming out of Stanford called Make3D. The service uses machine learning to go over your photograph and recreate depth and perspective in three dimensions.”
SpeakLike translates chatting as you go: “It appears like an ordinary chat application as you type. Choose which languages you want to speak in. You can see what you’re typing in your own language and what the other person is seeing translated. If a word or phrase is more complex, SpeakLike will go to a human translator and make sure it’s accurate. The company says the more you use it the smarter it becomes and the faster it will return results in the future.”
Xtranormal: If you always wanted to direct: “Xtranormal makes a fun tool for making animated shows with cartoon characters. It could also be a tool for making machinima, if the company manages to license characters from game companies.”
