It's Tax Time, which means paperwork, unless you go paperless with Doxie

If you're like me, the tax paperwork is trickling in, and you're compiling an envelope (or box!) full of receipts, payments, tax forms, etc., in preparation of tax day. Now might be the perfect time to make a New Year's resolution to scan and archive such paperwork.



Shootout: SkyDrive vs Dropbox vs Google Drive

image

As much as I like iCloud, I still need to use a file storage service such as Dropbox because iCloud's offering is so limited in this area. It will only store and sync files created with Apple's iWork suite. I'm a big fan of Dropbox, and it's likely the most popular file-based cloud service. This is no doubt because it's utterly simple to set up and use. But it has some serious competition in Microsoft's SkyDrive and the new Google Drive.



iPads in the Classroom

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.



IOS APPS FOR SCHOOL

Many students fear starting school, whether its starting a new school or the transition from one grade to the next.  Students don't need any more stress than necessary when beginning school or switching to a different campus.  I have compiled a list of apps that will reduce the stress and make school more enjoyable for all students who have an IOS device. Lets face it if our kids aren't happy we aren't happy.  These applications can  benefit parents too.

Notability,  PenUltimate and Notes Plus Review

Can we find the perfect note taking app for each individual?  Is this to broad of an audience to meet the needs for all?  I think it will come down to a few apps being great for note taking.  I don’t think one company will monopolize this niche.  Why?  People are too different.  I may like certain features that my friend doesn’t.  With that said lets discuss some applications available.

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.
