This app is Life Noted and merges camera, video, notetaking and more. It was recommended to me as a notetaking/ capturing tool for observation in the classroom by teachers of students, but I think that anyone evaluating another person might benefit from this sort of tool. Capture your notes and the speech about the notes and share it. Very interesting idea. It is free right now.
I’m going to test this website. It manages class trips, permission forms, and communicates activities with the class. The idea of it sounds great. Yes, it is free. Of course, we’ll have to dig down and see how the emails are used and the privacy settings but this is definitely something very needed!
This app converts study notes to speech. This might be an app that some of you are interested in trying out for your special needs students. “OutlinesOutloud takes the sting out of studying by converting your study outlines to spoken audio. Super-flexible playback controls let you vary speech rate; jump forward and backward with ease, skip rows or whole sections, loop—and more!”
I’m having a chat with Dawn Casey-Rowe, a teacher and she was sharing with me what she’s doing on Learnist. This is a Learnist board about how to use Learnist. I am interested in how this works. There is also an app. It looks like a sort of combination between pinterest, mentor mob, and flipboard.
This is an interesting, creative list of apps including apple and Android apps and the price. I thought there were some interesting ideas here. I still feel the “cute” factor is part of evaluation as no serious evaluation mechanism has emerged for reviwing apps.
This list of 50 apps is a good one to read for those of you who have a Droid or iOS device and love looking at apps.
Instructions for adding a safari bookmarklet for just about every service (except Diigo) on Chris Bray’s website. If you have an ipad or iphone and want to send things to your Tumblr blog you can follow these instructions. (For pinterest, go to the Pinterest website.)

Interesting efolio app
Richard Byrne suggests that educators use Tinkercad, the 3D modeling tool to their students because it is very easy to use. Just note that you MUST use Google Chrome or the new Firefox - they don’t work correctly in IE.
Nice list of apps from Mashable. There are two of interest to me: pair (which links me with my husbandin a private network of sorts for list sharing, etc) and also Wonders of the Universe (another planetary exploration mind experience.) You’ll want to go through this list. Also of note, a new video conferencing ipad enabled app that lets you share video, etc. The collaborative conferencing programs out there need to understand that we need ipad-friendly apps, period. No choices, do it and do it now or we will find other platforms to collaborate.
