iPad App of the Week:
This app can be used as a great resource of information. It houses information on over 3,000,000 topics in a format that looks great on the iPad. Information is given in a narrated presentation format, that can be stopped to allow for further exploration into a particular image. Qwikis by location automatically locates you and highlights important Qwikis. This is a great app for information gathering.
Web 2.0 App of the Week:
Everyone has history to share: whether its sitting in yellowed albums in the attic, collected in piles of crackly tapes, conserved in the 1000s of archives all over the world or passed down in memories and old stories. Each of these pieces of history finds a home on Historypin, where everyone has the chance to see it, add to it, learn from it, debate it and use it to build up a more complete understanding of the world.
SMART Exchange Resource of the Week:
Soda Can Rhythm Game
The lesson is geared toward the elementary Music Classroom. It is a game where students listen to rhythms and then try to repeat the pattern by pulling the “soda cans” down into the appropriate boxes. Students will be able to check their work and receive audio feedback.
