Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 11/18/11

tools1Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found this week, thanks to my PLN. As a teacher, I feel we have to keep up to date concerning research in our field and current issues in the education system. I hope some of these inspire you, inform you, and even have you asking questions. Thank you for coming by and visiting!

Ipad in Education – “information related to the iPad in Education sponsored by the Department of Educational Technology in the School District of Palm Beach County.”

Videodropper – “Videodropper lets you send YouTube videos directly to your Dropbox folder, so that you can watch them later at your leisure. You can also choose to optimize videos for viewing in an iPhone/iPod Touch.”

Olympic Challenge 2012 – “An exciting collaborative project in which schools can compete against each other in a series of Olympic themed challenges.”

Story Wheel – free app for iphone and ipad; “Story Wheel is a cooperative story creation application for the iPhone and iPad, designed to work in conjunction with one of the most powerful computers in the world - The human mind. It will help you create stories, improve your child's cognitive abilities and most importantly, have fun!”
