Here’s a few apps and services that you may want to share with your students, unless they are already using them…
I just can’t tell you how great our move to Google Apps in all 6 of the school districts in our region has been. Gmail is amazing, but the added benefit of Google Calendars and especially Google Docs just puts it over the top.
Google Docs is getting more and more powerful and feature-rich seemingly daily – and I find myself needing to use MS Office less and less (and I cringe each time I need to do it). More and more people are just living in their web browser, and taking the time to open an application, create or find the needed document to open seems like wasted time.
This article lists 50 tips for using Google Docs in the classroom. It’s a lot to take in at once, especially if you are just getting started using Docs. Take in a couple at a time, and use the knowledge gained to make Docs an integral part of your classroom workflow.
Even better, your students can sign up for a Gmail account for free – and they get access to these same tools, taking you one giant step closer to a paperless classroom.
Great list of apps from an 8th grade math and social studies teacher in the trenches who uses iPads with his classroom on a daily basis. I’ve seen and used many of them, but there were some great surprises in here (see my last post about Scribble Press).

Fun iPad app that is a great combination of Mad Libs and a coloring book that enables students to easily create their own picture books. Books can be shared via email, iBooks, Facebook, Twitter, or in the Scribble Press Gallery online.
What a great app for the end of the school year, or anytime!
