About.me Now Supports Embedded Video and Audio

Last month I wrote an article for School Library Journal in which I suggested having high school students create digital resumes on About.me to share as part of a college admissions application or an internship application. About.me makes it easy to quickly create a one page site highlighting your strengths, things you've published online, and your preferred contact information (you can see me sample page here).

This week About.me added support for embedding YouTube, Vimeo, and SoudCloud files into your page. This is a great option for students who are hoping to find employment or internships in the media production field. Students can prominently feature their best videos and or podcasts on their About.me pages.

Week In Review - The First Flowers of Spring

Good evening from the Free Technology for Teachers world headquarters in Greenwood, Maine. It's starting to kind of look like spring here, there is still some snow on the ground and plenty of mud everywhere (my house might not be free of mud until June), but the first flowers of spring popped-up this morning. Seeing the flowers pop-up makes me feel like summer can't be too far away. Speaking of summer, I've had quite a few people ask me where I'll be presenting this summer. I will be publishing a list of my summer presentations and workshops very soon (there are still some details to finalize on a couple of events).
