There were lots of great ideas being shared at #MiamiDevice last week. I was only there for one day but I was very impressed by the event - both the tone and the execution. Well done.
Tony Vincent did a session called "We're Live!..." about students and teachers broadcasting. He mainly focused on the app Periscope. Now I had already been familiar with the tool after my first experience last summer, but I purposefully went to Tony's sessions to reignite that enthusiasm I had for it then. I WILL find a way to get it into my regular routine. He has tons of great suggestions on his website, but he said the big takeaway should be getting/using a microphone like the iRig Mic HD. I also really like the color palette he had in his slides and related infographic.
I also went to Adam Bellow's session titled Hacking Keynote. The person sitting next to me said he thought the session was going to be a keynote about hacking. I thought that was funny. But he ended up staying for a while because Adam's session was so interesting. Adam gave an 'under the hood' tour of some of his most creative Keynote (Mac OS X) slide designs and animations.
I only had my new iPad Pro with me. I was not convenient for storing and retrieving repeatedly in a conference setting. But the screen is really incredible. I'm going to continue to find ways to make it my go to device for certain content creation.
