Interesting iPad Course

Hello everyone,
I was recently blog hopping and while I was at the blog, Teaching with Soul, I read about Teachercast.net She wrote an indepth article about a product she found that teaches teachers how to use the iPad productively.  The company she writes about is Teachercast.net and they have a course of 20 videos that cover everything you need to know about using an iPad as an educational tool.  Right now it sells for $10.00.

To read the whole article by Teaching with Soul click here.  She explains everything about this course in depth.  It is an article worth reading if you are interested in more training.

Let me know what you think of it if you buy the course.

Happy Teaching!

Charts, sentence frames and geometry!

Hi everyone,
One of our awesome first grade teachers used these charts in a geometry lesson.  I love the sentence frames!  Great support for his second language learners!

Happy Teaching,
