For years Photoshop was the only option we had to make changes to our photos. It was so ubiquitous that it has long been the verb of choice when we ...
I have been looking for a good collaboration setup that is easy to use and implement on a moment’s notice. There are a lot of whiteboard collaboration web apps, but ...
We are swamped! We are inundated with access to so much great information that we want to read, but the majority of the time when we find it, we’re not ...
Endless Alphabet is one of the more curious apps I’ve come across. It’s incredibly popular and for good reason. I originally downloaded it with the intention of having it ready on my iPad when my 3 year-old nephew came over to visit, but I found myself playing with it more than he did. [...]
In the past to make sure all of my students were getting a fair run at answering questions, I used to create flash cards with each of their names on it and cycle through it from beginning to end. Now everything can be done right from your iPhone using Stick Pick. Depending on the size [...]
If you’re a trivia fan like I am, you’ll already know about QuizUp. Touted as the “biggest trivia game in the world” you can find yourself playing quick games everywhere you go, and not just on a Tuesday night at the local Irish pub. But QuizUp can be used for a lot more than [...]

Ah, the ever-growing hashtag. Years and years ago, I had a friend tell me he was getting sick of seeing “www.somewebsite.com” on more and more billboards up and down the 405 freeway. I think he’s grown to accept that they’re a normal part of advertising and life at this point, and so will those who [...]
What once was an excuse of “the dog ate my homework” now has become “I didn’t get your e-mail!” and the fact of the matter is – that may very well be true. E-mail is a tricky game to navigate because filters stop them, one wrong character sends them into the never-world, and many simply [...]
Monitoring your students’ progress is one of those things that everybody knows they have to do, but doing it in a measurable way outside of quizzes or (even less frequently) through mid-terms is so overwhelming that many of us simply tend to leave it to subjective measurements like… “Nobody’s asking questions, they must get it.” [...]
As teachers we spend a LOT of time figuring out the best things out there to help out our students, but we often forget to turn things around and figure out what’s best for ourselves. I’m as guilty as anyone of spending hours working on my nice, pale, screen-tan and fingering at a bowl of [...]
