There is More to iPads in the Classroom Than Apps  In a previous post, Evaluating Apps with Transformative Use of the iPad in Mind, I describe my ambivalence about teacher asking my for the “perfect” app to teach this or that. I have teachers ask me frequently about app recommendations for different subject areas.“What app could I use to teach subtraction?”“What app would you recommend for my students to practice writing?”

Why This Matters to Digital Citizenship Note: The top half of this will be about Google Reader -- the best product that few people new about. Feel free to ignore it. The bottom half will tie this product and the philosophy behind it to Digital Citizenship and Information Literacy. If you are a non-tech Educator, skip to the picture of the three girls. So Long and Thx for all the Well-Organized, Pre-Selected Push News If you were reading any blogs about...well almost anything or on social media...just about any of them. 7 Ways Teachers Use Social Media in the Classroom Millennials live and breathe on social media, so teachers are learning how to incorporate the medium into the classroom successfully.

best iphone/ipad apps for kindergarten-aged kids Last week I shared some of my favorite apps for the preschoolers, and today I wanted to share some of my favorites for my two kindergartners. I’ve found some really great tools for my iphone that help reinforce what the kids are learning at school. At our house, we have an ipad, and we also have two iphones (the one I use as a phone, and an older model that is no longer activated but can still get apps via wifi). The kids are constantly asking to play on them . . . and since we use a timer and have mostly educational games, I feel pretty good about our moderate use of technology as a teaching tool.

Who Are You Online? Considering Issues of Web Identity Wednesday (Feb. 6) is Digital Learning Day, an annual opportunity to contemplate the place of technology in the classroom and in our lives. Last year, we celebrated by digging through 40 years of New York Times reporting on technology in education to find gems like the 1982 article “Computers Alter Lives of Pupils and Teachers.” This year, we have a student essay challenge, and we have also invited a guest post from Common Sense Media, an organization “dedicated to improving the lives of children and families by providing the trustworthy information, education, and independent voice they need to thrive in a world of media and technology.” We collaborated with the Common Sense Media writer Kelly Schryver to focus on the increasingly important and nuanced question “Who Are You Online?” Below, Times and Learning Network content as well as offerings from Common Sense Media’s K-12 Digital Literacy and Citizenship curriculum for teaching and learning about this complex issue.
