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

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.
