Apps in the ELA Classroom and Thinglink

Hi there,

Hope that you're all enjoying the summertime- lots of reading, relaxing, and fun!

Since the beginning of July, I have been running an App-a-Day review on my blog, Purely Paperless. The first week focused predominantly on ELA apps including Futaba, Kidblog, and Book Creator. This week, I am concentrating on Math... so far I've talked a bit about my favorite fractions app, Oh No, Fractions! and Mathtopia. Click on the apps above to check out some of the reviews!

Stop by for some app reviews, tips for integration, and how each app can fit into your curriculum.

As part of the series, I have been experimenting a bit with Thinglink.

ThingLink is a great web-based app (with a new iPad app- YAY!) that allows you to embed links and media within an image. Truly, the options for Thinglink in your classroom are endless! I will be sharing  a bit more about Thinglink on my blog in the coming weeks.

I have received several emails on how to use this site, so I thought that I would create a quick video on using Thinglink:

So, go give Thinglink a try and be sure to stop by Purely Paperless for some great app information and a chance to win a $25.00 iTunes gift card!
