“2006 was a landmark year in Google's history. The Oxford English Dictionary accepted "Google" as a verb. Since then we have done quite a lot to make that action the grammar for our online lives. We follow its particular syntax to search for information. We follow the rules of Gmail netiquette. And we read with…”

"Here are what believe are some of the best iPad apps we would recommend for music teachers as well as anyone interested in creating music on the go. There is no huge learning curve in using these apps and anyone with the least knowledge of music and notations will be able to come to grips with how these apps work from the first few trials. Their intuitive interfaces and easy-to-use functionalities make them an ideal fit for classroom integration. Every app comes with detailed illustrations and graphical guides to help you make the best of it. We hope you will find them useful."

Formative assessment is an important tool teachers can use to target students' learning needs. When teachers know what students know (or don't know), they can better adjust their teaching to meet the kids right at their level. These digital formative assessment tools can help you do the job.
What do you think of when you hear the word "collaboration"? Do you associate it with the frustrating clunkiness of trying to synchronize everyone's work?

Digital access, commerce, communication, literacy and etiquette… What do these words have in common? Well, for starters, they are all components of digital citizenship.

As with any other type of education, we—as educators—can’t make assumptions that students have the necessary knowledge to make good decisions when surfing the web. And even if they do—they’re kids, so yeah, they constantly need to be reminded of what’s cool and what’s not.
Math is a core subject and one used in everyday life, especially throughout the K-12 years. Students who enjoy and generally perform well in math classes will have their choice of an amalgam of apps to aid them in both study and enjoyment. There are, however, a fair number of students who simply don’t like to do math at school and who certainly won’t easily be tempted to do extra math at home. Luckily, there are a series of apps available to help math averse students. Some of these are geared towards students who need visual stimulation such as colors, patterns, and graphics to remain engaged in general math concepts. Other students, those who are geared toward auditory stimulation, will be interested only if sound and music come into play.

Students who have fun while learning can greatly benefit from these math ‘games’, especially if they are in the younger grades.
