Why this . . . . is a good thing?

This blog title will become a regular title in my blog on this day.  Why this . . . . is a good thing?  The . . . . will be where I put an event, piece of technology or another related item to this blog.  I hoping that I will present a well researched item that works well in the classroom, presentation or some other kind of professional development.

The world, oh the world.  This week I have been Skyping with individuals in Asia.  This means that I am talking in real world time with individuals who live in an Asian country, a place that my daughter travelled literally 24 hours to visit.

I am in the process of turning my skills into something else.  Something that I can do over the Internet in a remote position, where I can earn an annual salary and a bit more.  Not only that but I want to some traveling, but I want to do it six months out of the year and then spend the rest of the year up in the mountains.

God is fighting my battle right now and I am planning on this life!!!

Show Me Interactive Whiteboard

That is all there is to it if I am going to continue to work as mild moderate and multi intensive teacher, I need to have a least one more teacher to work with me. As a result, I will be starting with an app that I had used in the past when I decided to leave for four days and go to a convention. Sh. . . I didn’t tell the administration, I just took time off.

The app is called Show Me Interactive Whiteboard by Learnbat, Inc.  It worked well!  Also, to writing out what I wanted to accomplish, I was able to complete a video and attach them to the lesson.  I will be doing that this time as well. The only problem that I am running into is that the I need to figure out how to show it onto the smart board.

This post is not a sponsored post; I am not receiving any compensation for the app or its promotion.  I just like the app.  Here is a link to the website:  http://www.showme.com/

Show Me Interactive Whiteboard is fantastic.  I don’t remember if I paid for the ShowMe app because it was an app I was trying out for the company.  However, at this point, if you want all of the features it costs $5.99 a month, but to get it initially, it is a free app and does give you a lot of features.  ShowMe allows you to record voice-over whiteboard tutorials and share them online. It’s an amazingly simple app that anyone can use, no matter how young or old!

The app was great in setting up a class lesson for the students while I was gone.  The substitute provided information for her when she was unsure about how to process an experience for the students.  She would put the iPad on the table for the student to watch, while she had the materials in place.  Also, I recorded the routines and rituals for the classroom and a complete set up for the classroom management system.

What I liked was that I could easily edit the material on the app.  After I returned I update the class lists, the classroom management, the individual behavioral plans and the lessons as they progressed. I also used the app for centers and other small groups when the paras were absent.

All in all, I like the app and use it regularly.  I do encourage its use.  Finally, I have never paid for the upgrade, not that I remember but for those of you who have larger iPads it might be something to consider.

Netgalley Reviews

This is the website where I receive e-books for the privilege of reviewing them for more badges. I am not being sarcastic, I have really received some good books. I have also become acquainted with some new authors. These authors have also been really nice about contacting me. The publishers have had their marketing directors email me directly so that I can receive advanced news of advanced copies.

Now I realize how well they have held up their end and this is the year that I am a woman of integrity. I will get through these book and raise my book review rate to 80%,

Thanks Netgalley for all of the great books! I will become a great reviewer.
