From Tony Vincent. Learning in Hand TCC 4-1

Podcasting was my first exposure to Tony Vincent (@learninginhand, @tonyvincent or on FB) and his website. He still has the most amazing lesson plan for a podcast about your town. 

But as you can see there is a Twitter feed and FaceBook addition. A blog page has instructions on ideas you can use in class. QR code cubes for selecting a reflection topic, ipad uses, instagrams 10 feet long, jigsaw puzzle makers, and on and on…

5 Apps To Wirelessly Share Files From One iPhone/iPad To Another

5 Apps To Wirelessly Share Files From One iPhone/iPad To Another | Technology Tools for the classroom | Scoop.it

File sharing is not the strongest point of iOS, and Android users rarely lose any chance of showing off the convenience they have at their disposal, thanks to Bluetooth file transfer. At first glance, you might feel like Bluetooth or wireless file transfer is not something that you can have on an iPhone/iPad, but in fact, there are some really nice apps available in the App Store for exactly that purpose.

Terri Roberts's insight:

I was just introduced to Instashare (and love it) but may have to try one (or more) of these apps out.
