I liked learning about apps that I thought my teachers and students could use in the classroom. I don't have a mobile device to use in the library but maybe by promoting these apps, it would increase awareness of how helpful these devices are and more could be purchased for the library. I know that my teachers were really excited about DragonDictation when I demonstrated this at one of my "Tech Thursday" training sessions. It was easy to use and as I said in my blog it could decipher an individual who has a distinct accent. I confess that after I explored some of these apps I had them downloaded on to the school iPad carts and had teachers give me their initial thoughts.
This class was a fantastic way of seeing multiple apps for a variety of activities and I would participate again in the future. I learned some small things that made operating and using my mobile device more efficient and productive. (More than one browser on my iPad, who knew????) I also learned apps that can have a huge impact on student learning.
I find it hard to connect with others using the blogging system. I could follow someone but until they write something you don't know if it will be worth your while or not. I wish that there was one place for all of us to share our own thoughts about each Thing. That way you can see the comments made by other participants to determine who has similar thoughts about apps and their use and can readily reply or question posts. This would create a thread of communication.
Thank you for a great learning opportunity!
