A co-worker @MathenDavid shared an iPhone, iPad mic he is using called a Mikey from Blue. Of course I had to order one when I got home... checkout their website...
We had a webinar with edmodo which also made me so excited I wanted to getup and scream, Yes.... I knew they had a new app coming out, and that their website was changed recently but did not realize the app had not been released yet... Ok so what made me so happy about the app one reason was there will be multiple user icons when you open the app up, so this will help with multiple students using an iPad which is the environment we work in. They also changed some things under groups that makes it show just my actual classes can show on the side and when I click show more the others will show. Seems like a little thing but when you have 20 or thirty classes on the side and you want a specific ones to show, this will help. Other neat items too that I can't remember at the moment... Oh and easier opening documents into edmodo on an iPad...
Shari Edwards a local star - who has been blogging for scholastic for the last year... I am amazed at how she has written for scholastic once a week all year. She does amazing things in the classroom, I was lucky to have her share her story and use of technology in her classroom today. Here is her scholastic blog, and her classroom blog that she will have more time for this year...
We will be replacing our local H drives with Oxygen cloud, which means both students and staff will be able to get documents from mobile devices, and computers from both home and school. This is a big, HUGE move for our district... I am so excited.
This is going to be an amazing year... Share with me the tools you are using and how things are going at your school and classroom.
