Teachers know that when classes are done, the beer has been poured, and teachers gather around the table, the talk turns to...teaching. Great (and not so great ideas) are thrown around, argued, praised, and ridiculed. What's been missing is a microphone on the table. Until now. If you're a teacher, and especially if you're teaching in Japan, have a listen. Then let us know what you think.

Overview Virulent is an iTunes app simulation of virus behavior that incorporates gamification elements to engage students from grades 4-12 in exploring the microscopic world. The player becomes the “mind” of the viral invader, seeking to combat the defenses of the host in order to not only survive, but to thrive. The graphics are crisp, with a dark, red/black theme. The audio is of a monotone female voice, with the overall effect being Borg-like. We are the Collective. Resistance is futile. Yes, the game is engaging, and has potential to teach the player by involving the player in the life cycle functions of the virus. I learned about B-Cells, and how important they are to my continued health. Go B-Cells! Concerns No major concerns. The teacher who employs this app should build in checks for understanding to ensure that students are learning the lessons available. Also, in imbuing the simulation with human choice, voice, and volition, it is easy for students to subconsciously conclude...

Overview U.S. Presidents, an Android and Kindle app, is a flashcard-style quiz and learning tool. The information is rather shallow, dealing almost entirely with lower-order thinking skills such as identification and recall. If a teacher has as a learning objective that children memorize the presidents, then download and run with it. If, on the other hand, a teacher wishes to teach and practice higher-order thinking skills, conduct primary source document analysis, or otherwise construct lessons along the Common Core model, then this app is probably not for you. Concerns My primary concern is with the shallow level of learning available here. I am not a fan of flashcards. Rote memorization is not the basis for lifelong learning or problem solving. Sample Uses As a sponge activity, this flashcard app will do. Also, if one wishes to brush up on their Trivia Crack skills, this app can be interesting to pass the time. Otherwise, I do not see many academic uses for this app. Do I plan to use...

Time flies by, especially as we get older. In fact, some study (and I am not making this up) said that once you hit 30, time accelerates at an incrementally increasing pace. The TimeHop app takes advantage of this new reality by pushing daily reminders of photos, tweets and other “stuff” that you did on any given day one year, five years and more years back. It is so much fun to see what you looked like and were thinking in the past. It even tosses in a news headline from that time period. TimeHop works with iOS and Android devices. With your permission, TimeHop will link into your Twitter, Facebook, Photos and Foursquare accounts to pull the reminders. Concerns Yet another app that pulls and aggregates your data from all your social media accounts. Sample Uses It is a bit of a stretch to use this specifically in the classroom unless you have your students for more than one year. For example a drama or band class. However, I suggest teachers use it for the occasional “Day in my life” reflection...

Adobe Slate is an easy to use and intuitive iPad app that makes telling a visual and textual story simple. With limited menu choices and a clear workflow/path, students will quickly master the story and be up going right away. Students open up the app and have a blank slate with four choices for adding content: Photos, text, links and a photo grid. They can use the iPad’s camera, take from their personal camera roll, or easily search the web for photos all from inside the app. The story can be transformed into a website for easy sharing. It is possible to keep the site private and to share it over your favorite social media platform. Again, this app is SUPER simple to use with limited choices and a very clean design. An Adobe account is required to get up and rolling. Concerns You still have to know how to tell a story! As with any of these apps, the power really comes in how you leverage to communicate with your audience. The limited choices with Adobe Slate mean teachers are better able...

Chris – Digital Literacy … Just when I was closing in on the textual literacy thingy. Dang! Another form of literacy to wrestle with in the second half of my life, like I don’t have anything else to do. Seriously, though, let’s talk about this digital monster. I look toward the classic understanding of literacy to inform my understanding of digital .. you know. Being a fully literate person meant not only understanding the surface meaning, the diction, the syntax of a language, but also understanding the subtleties, the nuances, and the potential ramifications of what is being communicated. When someone in Texas says, “Bless your heart!” they are offering you neither a blessing nor a compliment. When a Brit says, “Brilliant!” Watch out! So, too, with digital literacy, we must be sufficiently experienced to know what a person actually means. Further, we must be skilled in communicating our own message clearly. That, to me, is the essence of literacy in any form, especially digital. Do not...

Overview A teacher at Concordia attended a class on digital literacy and learned about a tool called Bit Strips. Apparently this has been around for awhile, but I have never heard of it and really enjoyed creating the comic above. Bit Strip really has everything you could want in a comic making tool. You can create an avatar that looks like you, drag and drop scenes into the comic strip, easily change the pose of characters, easily add text and storyline pop outs, and lots more. I played around on it for about an hour and still haven’t tried all the features. But, there are lots of comic designing programs out there, so what makes this different? The difference is that with Bit Strips For Schools you can create a class and students can share their comics with each other. They can comment on the stories and easily collaborate on projects together. This added collaboration piece takes Bit Strips up a notch on the SMAR scale and makes it a tool that I would recommend to teachers. Concerns...

Overview Famous Paintings is an app for Androids (Google Play), but the Apple equivalent is for-cost, and not the same (iTunes App Store). I will review the Android app which allows users to examine 100 of Europe’s most famous … well, you guessed it … paintings, on Android-capable handheld devices. Concerns As a fun exercise in preparation for a trip to the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, or the Uffizi, this app is a fine choice. Given the subject matter, the materials presented are beautiful, and the mobility of the handheld device allows for viewing at one’s convenience. That being said, academic applications are limited. Sample Uses The two practical academic uses that I see for this app is for Art History class review and as a fun review/break for AP European History exams preparation. Do I plan to use it? I plan to offer the app as a possible choice to my students who have an Android device, and who wish to brush up on their knowledge of European art, but that is about it. Commitment and...
Jeff sits down with Todd Cochrane to discuss Podcasting SEO and the Blubrry Powerpress Podcasting Plugin for your WordPress website.
Overview A parent introduced me to a new typeface that I love. It’s called Dyslexie Font. The typeface was created in 2008 by Christian Boer. Boer is dyslexic and wanted to create a font that made it easier for people like him to read. In the past few years this font has gotten a lot of hype. There is lots of disagreement about if it truly helps and some studies have come back saying, no. This made me curious. So I went to one of our students who struggles with dyslexia and asked her to compare 2 tests I had made. One used the dyslexie font and one did not. She said that the one with the dyslexie font was easier to read. When I asked why she explained things like having larger spaces between the words, more white space, fewer words on a line, etc. The things she listed were not magical to Dyslexie font and you can absolutely include them using Helvetica or another font. But, then I started thinking, “How often do I do that?” I’m still not sure that Dyslexie Font is a magical typeface that...

When I was a lot younger, I learned to read. It has been a wonderful thing! Thankfully I am still able to read and I even use my iPhone to do lots of reading on the Kindle app. I also like to read articles from websites or using my Flipboard app. Once in a while I come across an interesting quote or piece of information I want to share with my friends on one of those social media apps like… Twitter! That can be cumbersome as I have to retype in parts of the text and limit to 140 characters or less. Too much friction and hassle for an efficient (lazy) guy like me! Thanks to the OneShot app, I can now easily Tweet out text quotes I come across in my reading. Aweosme! Here is how it works: I take a screenshot of some text I am reading in any app on my iPhone or iPad Next I open up OneShot and pull in the screenshot I just made. In fact, it is alrady there waiting for me. Now I have the ability to crop, highlight (using many colors) and share the screenshot out to my Twitter friends. I can...
