Just wanted to share that Yolanda and I will be presenting two webinars for Simple K12 . “There are so many iPad apps out there, that it can often be intimidating trying to figure out which apps best suit the objectives and the higher order skills you are trying to foster. In this webinar, join Lisa Johnson and Yolanda Barker as the use “ Hot Apps 4 HOTS ” (found in the iBookstore) to showcase how free edutainment apps can be used to create apptivities for the iClassroom.” The two webinars will offer apptivities that focus on student production within levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy from Remembering to Creating. If you have downloaded the iBook, please know that all of the apptivities and resources we will be sharing are BRAND NEW .
Thinking of using Twitter for your school or class? Many schools are now using Twitter as a quick way to share information about activities of their school or classes. Twitter is a quick blogging platform – micro-blogging – letting schools very quickly share short messages online to celebrate the activities of the school (including weblinks, images or video clips as appropriate) with the wider community.
Apple's handheld and tablet devices can be valuable for teaching and learning. An iPad, iPod touch, or iPhone can be so many things: a camera, a book, a canvas, a calculator, a timer, a reference, a notebook, an audio recorder, a word processor, a camcorder, a video editing station, a videoconferencing device, a movie player, a scanner, a student response system, an instrument, a flash drive, a presentation station, and much more. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>

I felt it was a great opportunity for our first graders, who had just finished a unit on butterflies, to create a book about the different stages of a butterfly and their learning reflection as a culminating activity. Students wrote a story, as a class, about the different stages of the butterfly.
