Time to Play
As we reach the end of the semester… I hope all educators take a little time to play around with new tools. And I mean PLAY… no agenda, no administration making you, no goal in mind. Some of the best tools I’ve encountered were because I took the time to just play around to see what happens. For example, this morning I was drinking coffee looking over my Twitter feed and saw this post
I had a moment… so I downloaded the app and tried it out. No reason beyond it was free, I had 5 minutes and the iPad was charged. And you know what – it’s a nice app. I could see it being useful to some. Maybe a little low power for high end screencasters… but for the new iPad user (perhaps one who has recently been given an iPad by their school IT department) it’s worth a look. So, take some time to play and make your technology integration choices your own. You'll be glad you did!
… and those of you at Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School get ready! I hear many students have personal electronic devices on their holiday wish lists…
