Video Star is a free music video creation app that I had a little fun trying out on my iPad today. To create a music video on Video Star just select a song that you have stored on your iPad then start shooting live video. The music will play for as long as you record or until the end of the song.
iPad is one of the best tablets available in the market. Many educators and teachers use it for both professional and personal purposes. Some are experienced users and others are still fighting their way through its intricacies. No matter what user you are, the spreadsheet below will be of great help for you. The Electric Educator has done a great job in creating this awesome spreadsheet featuring all the things you might need to know about the use of Google docs in your iPad. It really amazed me to discover that the integration of Google Docs is not as perfect as many people think.
Twitter App (free) Twitter is one of the most active and beneficial social networks on the web. All educators would be wise to join the conversation.

By Dawn Villarreal, One Place for Special Needs (Introduction by Lee Learson, Editor, The ConnSENSE Bulletin) What’s the right App for you? How do you choose? How do you know if it’s good, bad; worth your money or a waste of time. Dawn Villarreal from One Place for Special Needs has reviewed over 300,000 apps. (Her list of apps is amazing, well categorized and available at http://www.oneplaceforspecialneeds.com/main/library_special_needs_apps.html ).
I am conducting a series of workshops in Florida and was asked to share a rubric to help teachers evaluate educational apps as part of the workshop. In 2010 Harry Walker developed a rubric , and I used his rubric (with some modifications by Kathy Schrock) as the basis for mine. (Read Harry Walker's paper Evaluating the Effectiveness of Apps for Mobile Devices. ) I kept in mind that some apps are used to practice a discrete skill or present information just one time. Others are creative apps that a learner may use again and again, so it's a challenge to craft a rubric that can be used for a wide span of purposes. I tried to make my rubric work for the broadest range of apps, from drill and practice to creative endeavors, while stressing the purpose for using the app.
Recently I hosted 20 teachers in my school district at the zoo for an afternoon. The idea was to explore how we might use iPads during a field trip. It was certainly an exciting form of professional development. Instead of sitting at a desk and listening to someone like me talk about what you could do, we just went out and did it!
