6/24/2014 15:11:20I've really enjoyed your presentation today. My question is: I work in a pretty cash-strapped district. The only iPad I can rely on having in the classroom is the one that I've been issued by my district. How do we make sure projects using technology don't become just another way of separating our "haves" from our "have nots"?

6/24/2014 20:19:50I don't know if you can answer this and it could just be my age but every time we choose to or are asked in our daily lives, personal, professional or recreational to upload something to the internet I cringe. I worry so much about all of the endless information that is "in the air".
My question is; 'do you think there will ever come a time when there is a little more monitoring of the web information? ...you know deleting the information after so many days of inactivity/views, etc? I am concerned that we will never find the 'good' stuff' through all of the junk and it will take us longer than ever to find it as well.

And now for a general question:
We are experimenting with so any cool apps that I start to lose track of how I will use them with my students/curriculum/strategies...is there a way to create a flow chart starting with what a teacher is having trouble with in their teaching and then flow it to the possible apps that might assist in those areas? Kind of like those medical symptoms flow chart where each symptom connects you with a possible diagnosis and remedy.

Sounds crazy I know but as a music teacher, my presence in front of the students is crucial 80% of the time since I am their director and I join them in their performances (display of work). I feel that I would just be creating more fun work for me instead of finding some perfect iPad features/apps that truly make my students more skillful, knowledgeable and performing musicians.
I guess I need a more solid starting point and mane that will happen in the days to come yet.
Thanks for your patience with my wandering mind...lol
6/24/2014 20:45:20I posted to Kidsblog, but I will ask here too- is Kidsblog better than Edmodo? I have been using Edmodo for 2 years now, and am pretty comfortable with it. It seems that Kidsblog is very similar.
6/24/2014 22:02:24With all the different apps and websites, is there a "best" way to keep things organized so students and parents don't have to remember a ton of usernames and logins and so they can go to a single location to find all the resources and content that has been created?
6/26/2014 15:26:10How do I find out more about Discovery Education teacher summer institutes? Our district is a member of DE.
7/8/2014 15:08:14As a person who is just beginning using an iPad, I would love to know all the educational apps you think are useful and how you have them grouped on your desktop. Tips and tricks welcome - such as Cyndi sharing to use the address book to keep sites with passwords. Thanks!
7/8/2014 19:42:21You mentioned your belief that not every assignment has to have a grade assigned to it, but I'm curious how you keep kids incentivized to do big projects like these if they're not getting a grade for them. Thanks for all the good tips! -- Kristy
