Last year I used to tweet out an Ed Tech "Cartoon of the Day" each morning. Although this sounds like a daunting task of tweeting every morning, it was made quite a bit easier by using TweetDeck. Many people who use Twitter are already familiar with this service as it is "the" de facto tool for getting the most out of Twitter. Once of the cool features in Tweetdeck is the ability to schedule tweets. This is basically planning to send tweets out ahead of time and you don't even need to be logged in for it to happen.
So, for Cartoon of the Day I would spent some time on a weekend creating a few week's worth of cartoon tweets and scheduling them for one per day. In this process I gathered a pretty extensive collection of Education and Ed Tech cartoons.
I took a break during the summer and haven't got back into the swing of things. After writing this blog post I will start up this project again.
But before I begin I wanted to share a PowerPoint slideshow here with some 60+ of my favorite cartoons. Below is a link to this file on Dropbox where you can download it you wish. The slideshow is set up to run each slide for 7 seconds and to loop continously. I use this either at the beginning or right after lunch of a training session as people are coming in and getting ready. Feel free to use this as well anyway you see fit.
Oh... and please shoot me back and cartoons you find as well - always looking for new ones!
