Tamara Cox writes: "If you are looking for a way to expose teachers to lots of apps, this is a fun activity. I took our districts list of core apps (and several extras) and printed a sign with the app icon, brief description and a QR code that links to examples of the app being used in the classroom."

Our friend Adam Bellow has 'em! I really just don't know if they would be more than a very expensive toy for me! 


Of course, in the I avoided telephony for YEARS! I had a Trac phone and then a Virgin pay as you go phone forever! Though I had one of the first mobile phones (1991 installed in car w/ cord & pigtail antenna)  I actively RESISTED getting a smart phone (stubbornly!)


Maybe I'll share someday why...anyway...I really don't think I would use them other than to give my kiddos something to play with! This from a girl who has 2 iPads & a Kindle!
