Joyce Valenza and I are getting ready for a master class we are teaching in Australia next month.
Our workshop App Smashing Make and Take Day With Shannon and Joyce will be a fun, creative, high energy day where participants will learn how to use a variety of digital tools together and to be able to create, take, and use them from the workshop in their own school communities. As we prepare for our day with wonderful educators in Australia, we also thought it would be fun to get ideas and favorite apps from our friends.
Please share with us what apps you are using....What is new? What apps are great to use to get your students creating? What apps are you using to organize yourself? We'd love to know so please share by clicking on the Padlet wall. You will then add a Title, short description, and a link to the app. By adding the link, it will allow us to click on the icon in the middle of the app picture.... and learn more about the app by taking us right to that page online.

Although now rare in college and professional settings, graphing calculators are still common in high-school math education.
But as full-scale computers become cheaper, smaller and ever more ubiquitous, the future of standalone calculators is increasingly unclear. As the world's broadest and deepest mathematical system, Mathematica's computational capabilities vastly exceed anything that can be achieved with a calculator—and provide a completely different level of educational possibilities. While calculators are easy to use for simple operations, they rapidly become unwieldy when many steps are required. Mathematica, on the other hand, is immediately able to offer a fully scalable interface with dramatically more compelling graphics and interactivity, as well as greater systematic learnability.

I opened it to find two picture books. It was from my friends at Cantata Learning, a new publishing company from Mankato, Minnesota creating books for children 3-8 years old. At first glance you see a beautifully illustrated picture book with an engaging story for young learners inside. Any child would absolutely love these stories being read to them. These picture books were developed by publishing and early childhood experts. The illustrations and text support early literacy skills, while introducing science, social studies and language arts themes addressing the multiple intelligences cited by Dr.
Now, for something that truly makes Cantata Learning stand out from the others. As you open the cover of the books you will see a stamp on the front that invites the reader to the back of the book for music. And not just any music.....Wonderful sing-along songs! With Cantata, the songs and stories reinforce this learning too! Creatubbles - The place to nurture children’s creativity. Google Docs - create and edit documents online, for free.
