Articles of the week

Tech tips

High School: Featured LiveBinders  Great examples of LiveBinders in Use.  A useful, clean, and reasonably easy to learn tool for making online “binders” for topics, units, etc.

Middle School:   IFTTT / About IFTTT  IFTTT is a service that lets you create powerful connections with one simple statement: IFTTT is pronounced like “gift” without the “g.” Channels Channels are the basic building blocks of IFTTT. Each Channel has its own Triggers and Actions. Some example Channels are: Facebook Evernote Email Weather LinkedIn View all 60 Channels Triggers The this part of a Recipe is a Trigger. Some example Triggers are “I’m tagged in a photo on Facebook” or “I check in on Foursquare.” Actions The that part of a Recipe is an Action. Some example Actions are “send me a text message” or “create a status message on Facebook.” Ingredients Pieces of data from a Trigger are called Ingredients. For example, the Ingredients of an Email Trigger could be: subject, body, attachment, received date, and the sender’s address.

Elementary School: HoverBar for iPad – HoverBar for iPad – Twelve South  This piece of hardware allows teachers to use their iPad as a document camera or visualizer. It clamps onto your desk, bookshelf or where ever you would like it to sit, your iPad latches into the clips and the bar can be bent to position your iPad the way you want. It costs between 70-80 USD which seems like a steap price until you consider that most good quality visualizers or document cameras cost between 100-200 USD.
