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.

Brian Schau's Math Applications

Brian Schau has created several fantastic math quiz applications. Every educator using palm handhelds should check out Brian's work at Schau.com.

MathAce is a quiz application for addition, multiplication, division and subtraction. Here is video of my 4-year-old using MathAce and an abacus. LcmGcf is Brian's latest application, and, as its name suggests, quizzes children with LCM and GCF questions. Simplify and MixedUp tests children's' ability with fractions. Finally Angles allows children to experiment with various angles.

Each application highly customizable, most allow scores to exported and printed, and all are freeware.
