Enter D'Apps I'm using this site to gain competence with technologies that I intend to utilize in the classroom. My college is doing a pretty good job teaching traditional methods, however, I only have one instructional media class and I believe that 21st century students should learn with 21st century technology. When I begin my teaching career, I want to integrate technology starting on the first day, and the only way I'll be able to do that is to start practicing now. I'll use blogs in the classroom for communicating with parents and daily roving reporting by students. Students will also have the option to write on their own blog. Over the next couple of years I'll model how I'll use use blogging in the classroom on this site. Please check out my other sites concerning Handhelds and Podcasting.

Interesting application called Projects

This freeware application acts as a Task (To-Do) replacement that allows you to name a project and then have a series of to-do items under that particular project name. You can create as many different projects as you want and the project's individual tasks never intermingle with the tasks from another project. The user can also specify which Category (Social Studies, Math, or Science) he wants the Project to fall under.

This is a quite a bit different then how the built in To-Do functions. Under the built-in application if the user wanted to create a title with specific tasks he had to use categories. The categories function is limited to 15 and under the All view all the to-do items would intermingle with each other.

I'm using the V 1.8.3 beta version on my Zire 72 and have have not experienced any problems. I'm going to try to contact the developer and I'll post here if there are any cautions. Unlike the V 1.8.3 release, the V 1.8.2 release does not allow beaming which renders it useless from an education standpoint.
