Obviously, I took my summer vacation seriously – and did not lesson plan at all. Okay, at least not on paper. I did, however, do lots of research on apps. I write app reviews for a great website called Fun Educational Apps. Our focus is educational apps for children of all ages. I got to use a ton of new apps and found some great ones that I’ve already brainstormed some lesson ideas with. We also do a Top Five series a few times a month. My most recent blog post for that site featured my Top Five Talking Head Apps. What is a Talking Head app you ask? I consider it any app that either records or mimics your voice and as a bonus, you can add your own photo too. I love creation based apps and these are some that allow my students the freedom to express themselves in any way they want. I’d like to invite you all to check out the post as it features an iLesson idea with each of the apps. You can find the post here:
I hope as school begins for some of you (including me!) and the rest of you enjoy the dregs of summer, you’ll check back to see what we’re up to this year.
