These are my slides for the opening keynote at tomorrow’s Oklahoma A+ Schools statewide conference in Norman. I’ve titled it, “Visualize: Sticky Learning” and will focus on visual notetaking.

Combine Audioboo Sound Recordings with Audacity

Since Audioboo provides HOSTING for audio files you record, it’s not necessary to find another website to share your audio recordings with others. Audioboo does this for you.
