This past week at Burlington High School (3) , we started rolling out iPads for incoming freshmen.
While scientists may have a reputation for being anti-social, when it comes to using social media you’ll find the best and brightest in diverse scientific fields taking full advantage of the chance to connect with laymen and other scientists alike. Twitter is full of opportunities to hear what these scientists have to say, follow their work, and even start a conversation.
Like many parents and educators we’re sold on the iPad as a learning tool. My wife and I believe that it’s hard to beat the iPad for learning programs for our sons with autism. Our twin sons, diagnosed on the spectrum at the age of three, are 10 years old now and in mainstream classes.
BoomWriter is now in close to 2,000 schools spread throughout 20 different countries, and the list continues to grow! BoomWriter caters to a broad range of learners in terms of age, background, socioeconomic status, learning style, and skill levels, and it addresses an equally broad range of skills. No matter what grade level you teach, and regardless of whether you are a classroom teacher with 30 students, a challenge coach with 100 students, or a special education teacher with 10 students, most teachers can easily identify a way for BoomWriter to be a highly beneficial part of their curriculum.

FlickrPoet is part of Stories In Flight , an ongoing exploration of storytelling in the age of the Internet. Just enter a paragraph of text, a poem, some lyrics or even just a few random words and FlickrPoet will find matching photos on Flickr based on a search of tags, titles and descriptions of the photos. - You can re-run the search with other images by clicking "Show Story" again. - Poems and lyrics seem to work best, hence the title, but feel free to experiment. - Please let us know if you have suggestions on how to improve FlickrPoet .
I get to watch lots of online videos in my search for new additions to my Teaching Videos site . The site now has almost 2,500 educational videos, so I thought that I would share some of my favourites… the most inspirational… the most incredible… the most beautiful… and the most entertaining. Here they are:
I have created example forms for each of the different topics, follow the links in each of the ten sections. Use this form to gather some indication from your new class about their likes and dislikes, their favourite lessons or after school clubs they enjoy. It will help you to build your relationships with children as you quickly learn more about them.

To use a keyboard shortcut, or key combination, you press a modifier key with a character key. For example, pressing the Command key (the key that has a symbol) and the "c" key at the same time copies whatever is currently selected (text, graphics, and so forth) into the Clipboard. This is also known as the Command-C key combination (or keyboard shortcut). A modifier key is a part of many key combinations. A modifier key alters the way other keystrokes or mouse/trackpad clicks are interpreted by OS X.
