iPads in the Classroom

image

I've never worked on a Mac. I don't even own an iPhone. But one night four months ago, I borrowed an iPad from our Technology Department to see what all the fuss was about. As a baseball coach and sponsor of our school's broadcasting club, I thought the iPad might be useful for video analysis and editing. And it is. What I never expected was to find so many practical functions for my classroom. The iPad has changed the way I teach high school English, and there’s a pretty good chance it can change the way you teach, too.

Siri's First Cousin

image

Do you own an iPhone 4S and really wish Siri worked for you? I feel your pain. It doesn't make sense that Siri works exclusively for the 4S. It's just not fair. Ok, now that we are over that, what can we do? How about hiring her 1st cousin? Let me introduce you to SpeakToIt ($1.99). Not a very appealing name, I agree so if you ask her what her name is, she says it's Sam, just Sam. I refer to her as a 1st cousin because she uses the same voice recognition that Siri uses, Nuance. Understand though that she is not as talented as her cousin. She can find coffee and gas nearby, give directions, send messages and e-mail and a number of other things Siri does. She is also able to update Facebook and Twitter, which Siri won't do.
