Finding Technology Resources

I am so looking forward to my new iPad that is coming in the mail! I am scouring Pinterest for iPad for resources for using the iPad in the classroom. Something very exciting, I am getting a projector adapter along with the iPad so we can all work together and see what is happening. Here are some iPad Pinterest boards:

Also, I'm sure most of you have seen this version of Twitter in the classroom:

But what about using actual Twitter in the classroom?! A suggestion from The Teachers Corner, is to give your students (or parents) your 'teacher' twitter account URL. Then use this to easily communicate quick reminders about homework or tests. They don't need a twitter account to see your tweets. Also, you can send links to parents and other teacher to information related to what you are teaching. If you are already on Twitter, you might want to check out these articles: The 2012 A-Z List of Educational Twitter Hashtags and 100 Serious Twitter Tips for Academics.
