During the episode, as promised, Mark Millard and myself discussed the recent MacWorld conference, focusing on iPhone and AppleTV, which were announced at the keynote.
How could these new technologies be used by classroom teachers and higher ed faculty?
(As a side note, these Steve Jobs keynotes are often emotional experiences for those watching. Check out "Why Apple Makes Me Cry" at:
We also discussed various software packages that I picked up in the two exhibition halls:
- Toon Boom, Mac/Windows/Linux animation and storyboard software
- Toast 8 Titanium, Mac disc-burning software
- Slick Transitions & Effects, Mac special effect plugins for iMovie
- Civilization IV, a Mac/Windows history/politics simulation game
- Sims 2, a Mac/Windows people simulation game
- SubEthaEdit, a Mac text editor with synchronous collaboration features
- Profcast, a Mac program that allows you to convert your Powerpoint and Keynote presentations into screencasts/videocasts.
