Calling All Techies

For all of the techno-nerds out there like me, we are finding new and creative ways to use the iPad or related technologies in our lives and in our teaching. This week's Quick Note is simply a request to send me a description of any cool iPad applications that you are implementing in your classroom.

How are you using the technology to help you directly?

What applications are you using with your students?

We will compile the results and put together an article for next week. Please submit your ideas to Thank you very much!!
