This year, I made a promise to myself to integrate MORE technology in my classroom. One tool, that I often use is the ipad.

This is an awesomely cool platform for special needs teachers and therapists. It lets you roster your students then assign them specific apps. Once they log on all they can see are the apps assigned to them. This cuts down on distractions and reinforces the skills they need to work on.

Too good to be true but it is!

Katherine Page Burdick's insight:

Enterprising teachers can place their created lessons up for sale. The best thing? IT'S FREE!
