Children's ABC - iPhone/iPad app with hand painted illustrations

Oh no, not another ABC app! Yes, we know, there are plenty of ABC apps available, but we think that the beautiful hand painted illustrations makes this app stand out, making it visually different with a feeling of an old-school children's book.


Back to school doesn't have to be cruel

My daughter is entering Middle School and it can be intimidating. So I was excited to see Be Confident in Who You Are: Middle School Confidential, a graphic novel turned into an interactive, electronic book, complete with audio and visual effects. There are a variety of topics so a student is likely to find something they can relate to, whether it is bullying, body image, self confidence, etc.

Teaching an Online Class with an iPad 3G

When the iPad was introduced on January 27, 2010, I wondered if the platform would work in an educational environment. I started tracking online comments and documenting how different people were using the iPad, focusing on problems that were encountered and how success was achieved.

How the iPad Has 
Changed the Way I Teach


When I started the 2010-2011 school year, I had two goals in mind. First, I wanted to find ways to further engage my students in the classroom. Second, I wanted to create a paperless classroom. Over the summer, I decided to move from Windows to Mac, a decision I had been contemplating for a long time. I purchased an iPad and later, after my laptop died, a MacBook. I was hoping that the purported ease of use of the iOS device and the OSX MacBook would help me reach my goals.

Study Aids

Organize your classes, track assignments, and take notes with the help of these apps

A new school year is upon us, and that can only mean one thing. Homework! The thought of it is still enough to send shivers up my spine even though I have been out of school for well over a decade. Today, instead of working on my own schoolwork, I help my children with theirs. It is now my son's lack of organization, rather than my own, that provides an endless font of frustration. Fortunately, the iPad is here to help. 

Sadly, despite all my research, I haven't been able to find an app that actually does your homework for you. However, there are apps to help you get organized, take notes, track your classes, and even learn the material… just about everything you'd need to complete your homework on your own and succeed in school.
