GoRogueEDU - GIFs4Kids There is a great hashtag started by Sam Carpenter (@CarpenterCougar), #GIFvocab, where words are explained through GIFs. Unfortunately, one of the major drawbacks is the PG-13 and up aspect of many GIFs (GIPHY, Tenor, etc.) that are available for students to use. GoRogue EDU is fluent in GIF, and we wanted to create a SAFE zone for students and teachers to access appropriate GIF images. Type a word in the search box to search for gifs containing that tag, or choose to browse all available GIFs. GIFs4Kids is searchable in 24 DIFFERENT LANGUAGES (English, Spanish, French, German, Arabic, Dutch, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Polish, Afrikaans, Latin, Hindi, Urdu, Gaelic, Czech, Greek, Russian, Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, and Danish) with more being added very soon!Found one you like?

So I thought I’d get back to talking about everybody’s “favourite little tablet that could”. Today, I want to explore the possibilities the iPad has as a tool for researching information. As I’ve said many times, what I describe here can be done on laptops but the purpose of this post is to show how the iPad can be used for all tasks if you have decided to use iPads as your main computer.

I say “or so” here as this is the first time doing this in about six months, and I’m including below a few apps that were updated in late April rather than in May.
