Declan's Spanish FlashCards

Monday, April 23, 2012

This is an excellent tool to learn Spanish vocabulary words. The tool provides for learning in all of the modes required for language: spelling, speaking, reading, listening. I love this app so much that I use it with my own children for learning vocabulary. The word lists are customizable and the app is available on desktop and iDevices.

It is a pricey app; but much worth it!!

(also available for French and other languages!)

TodaysMeet

I've used this with middle school students during a presentation on CyberLiving. They used it to answer questions and also for backchannel discussion at directed moments. It worked well for the young students and I think this is a good tool to teach the protocol of backchannel, engage the student, and enable them to get more exposure to and practice with technology tools.

Evernote

I use this tool both professionally and personally. It is an appropriate tool to use for productivity as well as a for a classroom tool.

The multimedia that can be included with Evernote really puts it over the top in terms of it being not only my go-to note taking tool, but I also consider it the best one out there. Additionally, the ability to share on ALL of your devices is unmatched by anything else I've used.

I use it to take notes during all of my meetings, using my iPad. I also use Evernote on my other devices and sometimes I access notes on the web (I don't do this much b/c I almost always have one of my devices).

I have teachers at my school who use it in their classes with iPads for students to take and share notes.

I use this app VERY FREQUENTLY and have been a member since and only have the free pricing plan. I have not had to upgrade to premium - yet!

Excellent tool!

Socrative Teacher

Wow. I just took a tour of this tool - I am going to promote it with my teachers next year and specifically target my 8th grade science teacher who is in the process of moving her curriculum over to the iPad. This looks great!

More to come...
