Wow! I've learned a lot today. I'll start with this little item I just created: (you might want your sound turned on for this).
I hope it really works. It's a narrated picture of an app (it's also a website for your computer) called fotobabble. I think this would be great to have students go out and take a picture of something that starts with b, then narrate something like, "I found a ball. Ball begins with b." There are editing tools, too.
I learned an essential skill for my ipad I didn't know: how to make a screen capture. It's simple, but not intuitive. You hold down the home button and click the on/off switch fast. The picture goes to your photos app.
I've used the four finger drag sideways, but I also learned the four finger drag up to see active apps. I've just been clicking the home key twice.
Another new app that I love is called educreations. Here is my very basic and far from perfect quickie lesson. How to write a lower case a I can see adding all kinds of things on here. Right now I think it would come in really handy as a homework helper. You can take a photo of the homework page or problem and talk through it.
I found a few apps that I might be wanting to get, too. I'll save the list of apps for posting tomorrow.
Thanks for reading,
