 "Children and teens with learning disabilities sometimes have a hard time with social skills and behavior, including reading or communicating nonverbal signals. The following mobile apps may provide your child or teen with some high-tech support. Although we did extensive research on available apps, we also learned that just because “there’s an app for that” it doesn’t mean that it’s right for everyone."


Darla Hatton and her teenage daughter have reviewed these 10 apps in Apple products for you to try out.

It used to be that when you wanted to warn ocean-goers about shark-infested waters, the only solution was to send a panicked Roy Scheider running down the beaches.

Quote "Twitter is up to the task. A group called Surf Life Saving Western Australia has connected transmitters on tagged sharks to an automated Twitter warning system. The resulting tweets (see examples below) warn surfers and beachgoers about the size, breed and location of sharks that come within a kilometer of the shore."

Indeed, students do turn to Google first. Teacher Librarians however, need to be directing students to other suitable search engines for their research.

What Is Successful Technology Integration?

What Is Successful Technology Integration? | Technology in the classroom | Scoop.it

Before we can discuss how to shift our pedagogy or the role of the teacher in a classroom that is integrating technology, it is important to first define what "technology integration" actually means. Seamless integration is when students are not only using technology daily, but have access to a variety of tools that match the task at hand and provide them the opportunity to build a deeper understanding of content.
