Devices: iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Android Addictive app with familiar gameplay -- and an age mismatch. Great gameplay, but pet theme lures kids too young to play. Editors' pick Busy Shapes mimics a real-world environment for kids to explore but also gives them the safe, appropriately stimulating way to explore the digital world that will be part of their experience.

Cute baby versions of TV favorites, but lots of crying. Good card game limits itself unnecessarily with purchases.

Using Multiple iTunes Libraries on One Computer. Did you know that it's possible to have multiple iTunes libraries, with completely separate content in them, on one computer? While not only a neat lesser-known feature, it also helps you: Keep separate each person's music, movies, and apps on a family computer shared by more than one family memberSync multiple iPods, iPhones, or iPads to a single computer without getting other people's music on your device unintentionally (other options for this include using playlists, using the iPod management screen, and multiple user accounts).

This technique works with iTunes 9.2 and higher. Having multiple iTunes libraries is similar to having two separate computers each with iTunes on them. To use multiple iTunes libraries on your computer, you first have to create them. If you've already got multiple iTunes libraries on this computer, skip to step 3.

(Updated 10/2013) It is Benjamin Bloom's belief that the entry point to learning is the acquisition of knowledge. He postulates that a solid foundation of terms, facts, theories, and skills is the educational base that will allow the mind to evaluate information effectively and inspire innovation. Our schools' emphasis on and devotion to standards-based instruction and high-stakes testing reflects a desire for students to become proficient at memorizing terms, and facts as well as and mastering various sets of skills.

Yet, we live in an age of "too much information" where facts are readily available on the mobile devices carried in our pockets. Knowledge is now accessible with just a swift swipe of a finger. The level of immediacy that mobile technology offers is changing the landscape of the classroom and the skill set of the future workforce. The Role of Mobile Apps What I mull over is how instruction using mobile technology can contribute to this type of thinking. Remembering Criteria. iPads in the Classroom. iPad Curriculum.

Cogs of the Cognitive Processes I began to think about the triangular shape of Bloom's Taxonomy and realized I thought of it a bit differently.Since the cognitive processes are meant to be used when necessary, and any learner goes in and out of the each level as they acquire new content and turn it into knowledge, I created a different type of image that showcased my thoughts about Bloom's more meaningfully.Here is my visual which showcases the interlocking nature of the cognitive processes or, simply, the "Cogs of the Cognitive Processes".
