I've seen an increasing amount of material written recently about the benefits of standing desks in the workplace, and the inclusion of standing tables in many new school buildings - this article provides some useful insights as to why this may be a good move.

Love this image - technology is a tool we can either use badly or effectively; its not the 1 answer we should expect to work without any effort!

Excellent!

TouchCast - Creating interactive video on the iPad | Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

TouchCast is an iPad app that I downloaded recently and have been exploring a bit over the last couple of weeks. It's not often an app come along which really shakes up and existing genre like video, but I think TouchCast does and in a way that can be very beneficial for learners.

We do still need to remember that to get it right with the student you need to get it right with the teacher. As John said "keeping it simple and general is still the key"

Jan Eade's curator insight, August 21, 2013 12:17 AM

Some interesting apps here which are worth looking at, but I am not sure why some of them are classified as teacher apps.

The "Kid Blog' is a safe and effective way to allow your students to keep up to date blogs in a secure evironment. With these blogs students can not only post their own blogs, but oarticipate in discussions.

I feel this is a gerat resourse to use within the classroom, as students and teachers can keep track of students posts and especially look at their progress throughout the year.

Xyleme Alex's curator insight, August 7, 2013 4:58 PM

Looks like a great tool and it's entirely free. I like that it is based on the Wordpress platform, but removes the clutter and distractions that other blogging services have.
