APPY HOUR on the #nebedchat gave us this great spreadsheet with some great apps, recommend by other Nebraska Educators : Check it out!   (Remember what I said about Twitter, it's an awesome resource if used correctly by educators. This came from the #nebedcat that occurred on Twitter.  Remember the hashtag #nebedu is used to share resources with other Nebraska educators. Here is a link to that #nebedu to see whats being shared right now: 

Chirp is a magical new way to share your stuff – using sound. Chirp 'sings' information from one iPhone or iPad to another. Share photos, links, notes and more: all from your built-in iPhone speaker. What will you chirp? Could be a nice way to share a link, website, etc... with a class. FREE

Publishing with iBooks Author  An Introduction to Creating Ebooks for the iPad   This is a great FREE ebook that you will want to checkout if you are interested in getting into making your own iBook. If you are going to use it on your iPad, I would recommend the ePub format.  (If you are here at Norris, this is already for you on our network along with a lot of other free eBooks. Contact our tech staff for more information.)

SKITCH is a great app to Annotate, edit and share your screenshots and images… fast and free.  (This company was just bought by Evernote, so it now seamlessly integrates with Evernote too.) Download from here.
