rwestby's insight:

More and more ideas come from short video tutorials of real people dealing with real problems finding real solutions. This is one of those great examples. Children have never before had so many opportunities such as Doodle4Google, et.al., to become famous doing what they love - drawing.

Who Has What? - An App for Keeping Track of Borrowed Materials - iPad Apps For Schools

Who Has What? - An App for Keeping Track of Borrowed Materials - iPad Apps For Schools | Elementary Technology Education | Scoop.it

"I can’t tell you how many books, CDs (remember when we used those to listen to music?), and DVDs I’ve lent out and never seen again. Who Has What? 2 is an iPad app that could help me keep track of those things from now on. Who Has What? 2 allows me to create an inventory of the things that I lend by taking pictures of them or scanning their barcodes (the barcode function didn’t work as well as I hoped when I tested it). Once an item is in my inventory when I lend it out I just select it on my iPad, enter the name and or email address of the person I’m lending it to, and set a due date for that item. From the iPad I can send due date reminders to the people that I’ve lent my items to."

Reflector and AirParrot make the perfect team. If you don't have an Apple TV but you still want to mirror your desktop to a bigger screen, we can help. Reflector is an AirPlay receiver that makes a great alternative to an Apple TV. By using AirParrot in conjunction with Reflector, you're able to send any computer screen to another computer on your network, wirelessly.

10 Great Tools for Academic Research You Should Know about ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

10 Great Tools for Academic Research You Should Know about ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Elementary Technology Education | Scoop.it

"Compared with how academic research was carried out in the pre-internet era, It seems like technology is really a godsend gift to researchers. From easy and unlimited access to journal articles to web tools that do the referencing and auto-syncing, everything has been digitized making it way easier for todays researchers to add to the body of the human knowledge than any time in history.

As a web 2.0 researcher and a graduate student in the faculty of education in Mount Saint Vincent University, I have had the chance to experiment with a wide variety of web tools that can make your academic life much more easier. Below are some of the web tools I have been recommending to undergraduate, graduate, postgraduate and PHD students, and professors. Check them out below and make sure you share them with your colleagues, they could be in dire need for them. Enjoy"

'Skitch' by Evernote looks interesting as you can easily annotate pictures and videos. 'BaseCamp' looks great for assigning and managing student projects. 'WeVideo' supports Project Based Learning through students working together on video projects. VoiceThread, Padlet and Ease.ly are also recommended.
