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.)

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.
Create your own jeopardy game using this free PowerPoint. (Great for any time you have to teach anything as a fun review.)
This free tool lets teachers turn traditional paper into an online interactive guide. You don’t need an email for students to sign up. Worth a try.

Screenleap lets you share your screen instantly. All you need is a web browser. The person watching your screen just needs a web browser to view (even from a smartphone.) There are going to be some incredible things we can do with this. This can also make it easier to troubleshoot as you can see the screen of who you’re trying to help. (And it is free.)
