Create a digital scrapbook with Skrappy for iPad | TiPb

Create a digital scrapbook with Skrappy for iPad | TiPb | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it
If you’re a scrapbooking fan, Skrappy will not disappoint. If you’re not a scrapbooking fan, Skrappy just might turn you into one. It is very robust, runs great, and is so much more enjoyable than the traditional way of cutting paper, handling glue, and realizing you need to redo a page because you’ve misspelled a word.

Create a To Do List

Create a To Do List | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it
Use this tool to create a list of learning goals and make sure you stick to them. Most people keep their todo lists on pieces of paper (which has its upsides!) But many other people have found it useful to have their todo list on their computer as well. They spend much of the day working on their computer, so it is always there - paper can easily get misplaced - or sometimes you forget to bring your list with you when you leave.
