Technology Tip Tuesday (a little late..)

  • One of my favorite apps out there for the iPad is Puffin Browser.  The reason I like it so much is it allows FLASH content webpages to work on the iPad!!!  Check it out on the app store!

  • Bookshare.  This is an awesome place to get digital books in Daisy format for kiddos with print disabilities... Actually only kiddos with print disabilities qualify for these books and you must prove the disability, but they have thousands, upon thousand of title for kids.  They even have textbooks available.  They are also available in Canada (which doesn't always happen) but there is only around 20 000 titles available in Canada!

  • TumbleBooks, Bookflix, storyline online, any webpage that has digital books!  The kiddos love seeing digital books on the smartboard.  Just something different than paper books!

  • Text-to-Speech software.  This software is awesome for kiddos that have difficulty reading.  They are able to access the information just like their peers!

  • ATIA.  This is one of the best, if not the best technology conference I have ever been to!  Bonus - it takes place in Florida in January (last year I left Calgary in -35 Celsius weather and it was +30 there... AWESOME!)
