Are You Up For 39 Clues?

Recently I was reading a professional magazine and I came across a cool webcast opportunity that's free to sign up for - happening on March 5th. It's tied to the book series The 39 Clues and it's being hosted by David Baldacci. He's going to take students on a virtual field trip of the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History. He'll explore some of history's great mysteries, introduce students to museum curators, and go behind the scenes at the museum to investigate fascinating moments in American history. If you want to know more I've linked to the article here and or you can go straight to the signup at Scholastic.

You Can Do Wonders with Only 1 iPad

Yesterday I was getting ready to speak at SDE's Alabama Conference for K Teachers where one of my sessions is about using iPads in the classroom. Looking through my piles of printed goodies, I came across an article from December 2012 from the folks at Tech and Learning magazine. It's called 29 Ways to Use the Only iPad in the Classroom. I thought you might be interested so I've linked you to that article above. Enjoy!

Reading is Always a Trend in Education

Reading will always be important even if done on a screen so let's keep some focus there. I just added a widget to the home page pf this blog. You'll see it on the right hand side. It's called "Reading Tip of the Day". It originates from the Reading Rockets website. These tips might help you and can be a great thing to pass on to parents here and there. Enjoy!
