This is not an app, but I came across this website today and thought I would share. Some of you may have already seen this tool on the web, but I had not, and despite the fact that I typically will not purchase access to websites, I think this is valuable enough that I might [...]

I just love it when something unexpected (that I like!!) occurs. I have been using Noteability to write on pdfs and for journal writing. I was pleasantly surprised this evening when I opened the app to find that they had changed some of the features for the better. I had written last time that I [...]

I know there was another post about a whiteboard but you may want to take a look at MediaSlate Pro. The price is only $1.99 and it looks pretty easy to use. Another app for the classroom is Gradebook Pro but it is $9.99. It’s handy and provides great reports. Both are worth a look!

I just upgraded both my iphone and iPad 2 to iOS 5. I love the changes! A few tips: Leave yourself plenty of time for the download and update. Also, make sure your device is completely charged. It takes awhile to complete the update. So far I like the changes. iCloud seems to work great. [...]
