"On a cold winter night four or five months ago I started to organize the screencast videos that I've made over the years. I called the list Practical Ed Tech Tips. Since I started that list I've made an effort to add one or two new screencasts to it every week. Yesterday, I added the 100th video to the Practical Ed Tech Tips playlist"

Teachers: Embrace Twitter for Professional Development | Edudemic

Teachers: Embrace Twitter for Professional Development | Edudemic | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
I created my first Twitter account in 2008. Four years later, I finally made the commitment to using Twitter during an edtech conference, where I found myself frantically tweeting, retweeting, and refreshing my feed as I tried to take it all in. Honestly, up until I used it at that conference, I thought Twitter was just another social media blackhole. But through essentially constant use for those few days, I began to see Twitter as an excellent resource for educators and an invaluable tool for professional development – one of the best out there. So, for you teachers wondering about all the hype…I promise, Twitter is worth it.

Use the Camera Self Timer on iPhone & iPad for Better Group Photos or Selfies - OSXDaily | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

""The iPhone Camera app includes a self timer function, a great feature for any camera that allows you to set a countdown timer before a picture is snapped. There’s many uses for the timer function, but it often allows for the photographer or camera owner to be in the picture frame as well, rather than just shooting pictures from behind the lens."

7 Apps to Help Anyone Improve Their English Grammar

7 Apps to Help Anyone Improve Their English Grammar | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
In a world of spellcheck and texting abbreviations, few people want to take the time to learn about subjects, objects, and dangling modifiers. Besides, computers can fix our sentences for us. However, as anyone who's suffered an autocorrect embarrassment knows, computers don't always get it right. Language is a human tool and requires the insight of…

"Reading Teacher" Is A Good Site For Very Beginners - @LarryFerlazzo

"Reading Teacher" Is A Good Site For Very Beginners - @LarryFerlazzo | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Reading Teacher is a site that’s been around for awhile. There used to be a cost involved, but just last week they made it free-of-charge.

It has one or two hundred online books for very beginning readers — sort of an expanded version of Starfall. Many of the books have short quizzes after them.

Though it’s free to individual users, it does cost $20 if you want to create a virtual classroom of 29 students to track their progress.

I am using it, and will in the future, as another option for Beginning ELLs, particularly ones who have been out of school for a long time.
