I have posted about Pearltrees before, it is an app that allow you to collect, curate, make connections and then share sites, blogs, articles or websites around similar ideas or concepts. I said at the time that I liked this concept because it was such a visual interface and that it allowed the viewer to see the physical links between ideas. I found this one the other day and was impressed with the quality of the links. Kathy Casey has obviously spent a good deal of time collecting great resources for using the iPads in the classroom. This is the sort of curation and sharing that Pearltrees was designed for and Kathy has certainly used it well. Make sure you also have a look back up the tree as she also has some great resources around; Kathy Casey's iPad Resources Collection on Pearltrees

When the iPad was launched there was a lot of talk of what exactly it would be used for. Movies, games, school work and social networking where all mentioned as possibilities. What no one foresaw including Steve Jobs himself was the use of the iPad for special education. One year later dozens if not hundreds of applications have been created that enhance the quality of life for individuals with all types of disabilities.
Witchemina – Interactive Children’s Story – iPad App Review By Cristi | July 20, 2011 | No comment yet Black Dog Books has once again hit the App Store and this time they have ventured away from the Violet series and introduced a new interactive children’s storybook app called Witchemina . Written and illustrated by Allison Keeme, Witchemina is the story of a “sweet and gentle little witch” who thinks and acts much differently than traditional witches. Witchemina lives in a dark and mucky swamp together with her sisters and while they spend their time casting spells and boiling brews, she enjoys much different interests like drawing portraits of friends, casting good spells and baking chocolate chip cookies.

Poetry is one of the arts that many students struggle with. I always found that providing a initial successful learning experience was the best way to instil both confidence and foster engagement with my students. Here are a bunch of apps that would allow a student to get their teeth into writing some poetry and for those that struggle an opportunity to see just what they are capable of. Word Mover: FREE Word Mover mobile is used to supplement classroom instruction, reinforce concepts taught in class, and offer increased student engagement. Word Mover allows children and teens to create "found poetry" by choosing from word banks and existing famous works; create a piece of poetry by manipulating the text.
