MACUL 2010 was the year that started it all! A co-worker said, “Hey, you should apply to MACUL.”
I didn’t even know what it was! So, I looked into it, applied, was accepted…(thank you MACUL) and have been sharing and learning so much at MACUL each year it is truly amazing. So Thank YOU J-RO, Big Jolly, Mr. Robertson who encouraged me to apply to MACUL!
Look for our presentation at MACUL this year:
TNT: Dynamite Tips and Tricks from Two Elementary Teachers in the Trenches!
It will be packed full of information from two teachers who utilize technology in every class no matter what subject or grade level they are teaching!

I was able to see Leslie Fisher on Wednesday before a very busy two days at MACUL! Here are my take aways from her presentation on the Camera an Video Class:
I downloaded all the apps that she recommended before the session and that was very helpful. She has that handout linked on her website: Leslie Fisher
Camera Awesome: Great app for all things camera related and also easily uploads to SmugMug
Camera+: This has been my go to app for years. I love it.
VSCO Camera: ?? No Notes on this one… check it out.
Pro HDR: Many more options with HDR if you love that look to your photos.
PicLab Design Studio: Add text, filters, edit and more here.
Pixlr: ?? No notes
Photoshop Express: Adobe Photoshop App and Print right to Walgreens. Now that is nice!
Snapseed: Have had this one awhile and it’s a good solid photo editing tool.
Image Blender: Blend two different images to make a new one. Have’t played with this one yet but looks cool.
Color Splash:Love this one for making only one item color, and then the rest of the photo grey or black and white.
Camera 2: Many cool filters that I have not seen on other apps.
Action Movie FX: Turn your short video clips in to professional looking action movies with giant hairy spiders, laser beams and more. Many weapons on this app.
iMotion HD: Use this to record Time Lapse photography. Many options.
Vyclone: Social Media Video sharing site.
Collabracam: Use up to 5 devices that “talk” to each other from the same location to take video from different vantage points. This could be really cool. Angles off a ski jump hill anyone? Students doing a science experiment with 4 different angels! Sweet!
