It is time to amalgamate...

Thank you to anyone who took the time to read and learn from this blog in the past.
In an attempt to lighten my load I am making some changes to my past practices.

I have decided to amalgamate this favourite tools blog into my Teacher Talk blog-
Why should teachers not know all about these tools and have them in the one place?

To my followers- I do hope that you will accept my invitation to come and join me at my Teacher Talk blog.
 Teacher Talk-

Wonderful iPad post becomes even more valuable!!

Selecting the use of learning technology tools based on your students' learning needs is best practice.
There are three new areas added to the wonderful iPad Learning Objectives post : 
I want my students to use the iPad to stay organized. (NEW)
I want to use the iPad to conduct video / virtual conferences in the classroom (NEW)
I want to control my computer or Interactive White Board from my iPad. (NEW)

Book trailers are so often really persuasive...

I love the range and variety of book trailers that are available to enjoy.
I have to buy this book after seeing this beautiful book trailer.

If you are interested in encouraging your students to view or create book trailers the following livebinders should be helpful.

Create book trailers to encourage reading.
