Love the Duck Duck Moose apps, so this should be a winner

Terry Doherty's curator insight, August 21, 3:45 PM

"[Wonderbox] includes 120 creative challenges, from inventing a plant or designing a superhero to making seashells talk, taking shadow photos or creating a weather report, using templates and digital tools created by the developer."


Love the diversity of options for kids to build on a story and/or move through different kinds of storytelling.

The (3) best ways to share information from your iPad | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
With iOS 8, Apple expanded the iPad’s ability to share information in many different ways.  This has long been a frequently requested feature that was already available on various other mobile platforms in one form or another.  Sharing information and data, in any form, can be a very useful tool for all iPad owners.  I want to discuss three of the best ways iPad users can share information, and the processes they can use to make this possible.

OpenEd, creator of an online library of free and open K-12 resources, recently analyzed the use of videos in its resource library. Eight video publishers appeared as lesser-known — that is to say, you’re probably not on a first-name basis with them — but still popular among teachers.

The eight video publishers emerged as resources that teachers frequently assign. Those publishers include:

Evaluating Potential Technology for a Makerspace: Cubelets, Little Bits, MaKey MaKey, Raspberry Pi, Sphero — @TLT16 Teen Librarian Toolbox

Evaluating Potential Technology for a Makerspace: Cubelets, Little Bits, MaKey MaKey, Raspberry Pi, Sphero — @TLT16 Teen Librarian Toolbox | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
As part of my research for updating my Makerspace for The Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, I went straight to a source that I knew had done a large amount of the work for me already: The Robot Test Kitchen. At RTK, a group of librarians have evaluated a wide variety of technology tools that are typically incorporated into library Makerspaces as part of an iLead project. I highly recommend looking through the side and reading each individual post. However, for my purposes I wanted to create a quick comparison chart to help guide conversation and my own decision making. I used in the information from RTK and put it into a quick reference spreadsheet.
