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.

More on Projects

The more I explore this freeware application, the more I like it. Projects is a To-Do replacement which allows the user to place task lists under an unlimited number of headings (or projects). This gives me the best of both worlds, I can use and view personal To-Do list in Datebook5 without cluttering the screen with student assignments. And Projects is, in many ways, more flexible then the built in To-Do application. One cool thing that can be done in Projects, but not the built in To-Do, is manual sorting. Manual sorting can be done in the built-in Memo application, but I find that using the UP and DOWN arrows in Projects is easier. My four year old can sequence the alphabet using Projects but she can't do that using Memo. Here is an example of a math problem:

Over the past few weeks I've used Projects on my handhelds internal memory. I've found it to be stable and haven't experience any conflicts. Printing isn't possible directly from Projects, but two easy taps will export an item into a printable application.
