Dinosaurs, Common Core, and More!

I subscribe to and read quite a few ed tech blogs (with a few interior design and style blogs

thrown in to address my multiple intelligences. HA!) Sometimes keeping up with all of the posts gets a little overwhelming--even in the summer when I have more time on my hands. Many of the resources I share with teachers and staff come from these ed tech blogs or Twitter.

Here's a sampling of interesting resources I've come across recently.

You'll find ideas for implementing digital camera scavenger hunts with young children--your own kiddos or your students--when you read If You Give a Kid an (iPad) Camera.

Tim Childers, a middle school teacher from Tennessee, creates ed tech instructional videos and posts them on his CoffeeTimeEdu YouTube channel.

Do you know someone who loves learning about dinosaurs? He or she may enjoy the Walking with Dinosaurs:  Inside Their World iPad app. Read a review on the iPad Insight blog.

On his A Principal's Reflections blog, New Jersey principal Eric Sheninger discusses using student artifacts to demonstrate knowledge and also shares a poetry project assigned by one of his English teachers.

Math teachers will want to take a leisurely look at the six most popular math resources shared recently on the Common Core and Ed Tech blog.

The Common Core and Ed Tech blog also recommends nonfiction reading lists for students in a recent post.

Jordan Collier challenged his junior high English students to write ebooks and submit them to Apple for inclusion in iTunes. They were successful, and you can download these ebooks onto your iPad for free!
