When my supervisor mentioned this conference that we would be attending, I had little idea what to expect. I have been to conferences, and have attended events similar, but was not prepared to engage in what I learned would be a week long perpetual infusion of learning. It was, needless to say, a period of fast paced, no holds barred, presentations, key note speakers, exhibitions, and idea sparking innovation.

I took notes furiously and tried to capture everything on my iPad so that once it was over I might be able to digest everything I had taken in. I would like to share with you some of what I was able to glean from the best presentations I attended.

Google Apps Add-ons

 One of the first presentation I attended was "Add-on Some Awesome Sauce" I enjoyed this presentation very much because it gave me a chance to see how some Google add-ons worked.
 This slide shows which add-ons go with which Google Apps


 Seesaw is a tremendously powerful tool for Teachers who are interested in increased communication with parents and building digital portfolios for students. This presentation included a video that described how Seesaw is used and various customizations that are supported through the app/web based version.

Adobe Apps
 Adobe Voice is a tool that captures a student's audio recording as they narrate a picture slide show. Here is an example that I made:

 Adobe Post is a great resource for digitally presenting research or learning that a student has done in an easy to use graphic creator. Here is an example I made: 

 Adobe Sleight is a great way to make learning visible with a blog style customizations and options. Here is an example of one that I made:

TCEA was a great conference where I learned a lot and was able to meet lots of other porfessionals that share my passion for tech integration.


  1. I've used Adobe Voice, but I'd like to know more about Adobe Post and Sleight.

  2. I would love to show you. I have created presentation/examples in all three. I will send them to you and edit the post here to give examples.
