Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's comment, November 5, 2013 5:28 PM
Thanks, Darren, for "scooping" my blog. The fact is, I have yet to talk with a teacher, administrator, or a school who knows enough about PARCC to positively impact teaching and learning. There are so many "little" things we could be doing right now to enable our students to be deeper thinkers, richer readers, articulate speakers, and precise writers. Just not enough really practical guidelines. Too much theory and not enough practice. Well, I've got ideas for practice!

Two Wonderful Visual Lists of Educational iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Two Wonderful Visual Lists of Educational iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Teaching Trends | Scoop.it

"In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices.

The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same."
