I am looking for an energetic speaker for our back-to-school professional day.  Someone to kick off our first year as an iPad school.  Any ideas?  We are located in Central Massachusetts.

Will be implement 1:1 w/ iPads this fall - have created a great site for HS teaching resources across the curriculum:  https://sites.google.com/a/streaks.net/sjcc-ipad-resources/.  Also, found this this morning:  Google Apps and Bloom's Taxonomy:  http://teachwithyouripad.wikispaces.com/Blooms%20Taxonomy%20with%20....  Love to hear ideas/comments, etc.

Had some really good feedback about this little booklet. Thought I might share it here too. All feedback is most appreciated :)

I put this together for our blog ( http://blog.teachtci.com ) and thought of this group...especially the last three items on this as they are all great apps for the iPad.

Great Tech Tools for Writing

Kate, here is my favorite QR code generator: http://qrcode.kaywa.com/

 

On the iPad2 / iPhone, Bakodo is a great app that does a nice job and keeps a history as well.

Comment by Kate Ryder on April 15, 2011 at 8:20am

Opinions Please...Brian - and anyone else that uses QR codes

 

What is the best QR code creator - for iPad or computer?

What is the best QR code reader for the iPad?

Kate, loved the link to your post!  With the hundreds of thousands of apps, it's like finding a needle in a haystack sometimes when it comes to finding good apps for teachers.

Here is a link to a post on our blog where we highlight some great social studies and productivity apps: http://blog.teachtci.com/more-great-social-studies-apps

Comment by Kate Ryder on April 12, 2011 at 10:54pm
If any of you have a "teacher productivity" app that you swear by and I have not discovered it yet, please share. Since there are thousands of apps we must rely on groups like this for the best discoveries. My most used apps for daily productivity.

Thanks for your reply Kate. Sorry I didn't explain myself better.

The HDMI cable (and the VGA cable) projects the ipad screen onto the IWB - I was hoping that iPad games might be able to be controlled through the IWB i.e. move an object on the IWB and it moves on the iPad and vice versa. I've since discovered this isn't possible. Oh well, something to look out for in iPad 3 :)

Self-Regulation: Getting Our Students To Care

I think all educators can agree that we want our students to become better self-regulated learners. However, this is a daunting task for teachers. I've spent a great deal of time trying to teach my grade 6 students various self-regulation skills such as planning, goal-setting, self-monitoring, time management, self-control, and reflection, but in past years it hasn't quite "taken" the way I hoped it would. I talk about how important this skills are until I'm blue in the face and I usually get…See More

A Childhood Educator Is Becoming Commonplace In Teacher Training

School boards and individual teachers are seeking out new ways to improve and maintain their own learning process. Teachers with a passion for their career are routinely discovering innovative ways to brush up on skills, and to develop new methods for delivering information. Teachers know that children have a huge capacity for retaining knowledge, and that every child has their own unique way of grasping the information delivered in the classroom. A childhood educator is an expert in childhood…See More
