The Future Of Storytelling Is About To Get Wild Guest author Kim Gaskins is the director of content development and lead writer for Latitude, an international research consultancy. Many of us go about our lives constantly surrounded by screens, immersed in various "stories": movies, TV shows, books, plot-driven video games, news articles, advertising, and more. Whether we realize it or not, we're creating new behaviors, routines, mindsets, and expectations around what we watch, read or play—which in turn presents new challenges and opportunities for creators and marketers. App #25: Game Show Soundboard -Free! [REVIEW] Teachers who enjoy playing any types of games or competitions in their classes will enjoy Game Show Soundboard (iTunes link), a free sound effects app that I found while preparing for an all-school assembly earlier this year. I was the host to a trivia show which featured the a group of students vs. selected teachers and our principal. Simply typing in “sound effects” in the App store, I was pleasantly surprised to see a large variety of apps. Most of them were free, while some were around 1-2 dollars. I chose Game Show Soundboard, (which can be enlarged to fit the iPad screen) and the sound effects worked well.

The top 50 apps for creative minds There’s an ongoing argument in the technology world about whether tablets and smartphones are more focused on consumption than creativity. As time has gone on, though, the number of apps helping us do more than passively read, watch and listen has grown. Many also fall into a longer heritage of technology that democratises activities like film-making, photography and music-making. Video and photography apps now contain editing features based on those used in professional software, but made accessible enough for anyone to use in a couple of taps, and music-making apps are reducing the barrier to making listenable sounds. In all cases, this isn’t about you suddenly becoming a professional just because an app is holding your hand – instead, it’s about opening up the experience of artistic creation to a wider audience. Creativity means different things to different people.

English Language Learners and the Power of Personal Stories We’ve asked Larry Ferlazzo, a prolific blogger and Twitter user who has written a recent book called “English Language Learners: Teaching Strategies That Work,” to do a guest post for us today. More than five million children in the United States enter school each year speaking a language other than English. That amount is expected to grow to 25% by the year 2025. It’s not surprising, then, that we hear from readers regularly that the more we can offer for this group, the better. Larry has an interesting background: he spent the first twenty years of his career as a community organizer in California, often working with foreign-born populations. When he became a high school teacher six years ago, he realized that many of the strategies he used as an organizer translated easily to the classroom.

StoryBuilder can teach students about the basic steps for good storytelling as well as how to reply to questions in narrative form. Since the app doesn't provide feedback, practice may be most effective one-on-one with teachers tracking progress, at least until a student gets the gist of the exercise. You may want to share stories on StoryBuilder via email with a student's speech therapist and parents to demonstrate specific issues or evaluate and note progress. Read MoreRead Less What's It Like?

Our first look at a 3D printer! In the Spring of 2012, I saw an ad for a ’3D Printing Open House’ at a hacker collective called Crash Space in Venice, CA. Keep in mind, this was 2012 (I know, so long ago, right?), when only a handful of consumers had heard about 3D Printing, let alone ever seen a 3D printer in action.

A Simple Way to Organize Files at Home When organizing a home office or household command center, it’s important to have a very organized filing system.
