There is a new site I’m seeing called Buffer. It lets you find things and put them into your “buffer” – another autotweeting type service. You can use with facebook but beware that often Facebook makes things not typed “live” into facebook have a lower priority and not put them on homestreams.
Good post if you don’t get Google plus. This post is helpful.
I like this blog post written by a person who likes to shop. Sometimes this type of post is the best and I gleaned a lot of app advice from this blog post. Read up and research.
Here is the TGI cyber Monday app. This is for shopping on Monday.
Black Friday? There is an app for that. TGI Black Friday. It gives you the ads. You can download them on your iphone and Android.
(OK, yes, I’m researching for shopping and sharing the good things with you.)
AS you shop, you should download the RedLaser app for your smartphone. Compare your prices while you’re in the store.
How people will shop on Black Friday. They mention mobile, but one thing I do now is scan barcodes in the store to compare online and if it is cheaper on my iphone, then I will buy online via mobile. It is sad for F2F retailers but consumers are no longer a captive audience.
If you’re in the US and shopping on Friday, it is worth reading this post for ideas and links for coupons.
Flipboard has its first catalog go live. Gilt Taste will launch on Flipboard in time for black Friday designed to “make people hungry and thirsty.”
(I’m finding great resources for our Flat Classroom researchers.)
So, if you want to use Twitter to find black friend deals follow both #blackfriday and #blackfridayalert .
“Tweet helpful tidbits using the hashtag #blackfridayalert and others can search the tag using the Twitter widget below.”
Finding it interesting that the New York Times is taking thanksgiving questions on the hashtag – you have to tweet @nytimesdining with the hashtag #ThanksgivingQs – what an interesting thing. Why not try it?
Hashonomy is an interesting website that lets you figure out related hashtags. For example, here’s the hashonomy page for thanksgiving. RElated tags #lovethepie #thebigcheese and #turkeytweet – I’m not quite sure why #bookshakalaka is related but OK.
Some nice resources on creating a safe social network page. A document and an Interactive Whiteboard powerpoint file to use.
This is the app I used last year at Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is great. I put in when I need to check a dish or what I need to check and it keeps me going! I love it.
My indispensible recipe app for the ipad/ iphone. I LOVE Paprika. If you’re looking at thanksgiving and want it on your ipad, then get paprika while there is still time.
Handwriting and fine motor activities. A nice PDF document that you can find some things if you teach handwriting.
This resource provides a range of activities to develop fine motor skills, designed with learners with severe learning difficulties in mind. It is by no means exhaustive, but covers a range of activities to develop discrimination of left and right, hand-eye coordination, crossing the mid-line,
I love assembly ideas. Here is a harvest festival play that could be adapted in other schools.
Downloadable video “weather around the world” filmed in 5 different climactic regions. This includes multiple lesson plans and downloadable videos – all for free. (Another @TEsconnect resource)
A set of phonics flashcards that you can download.
An app building content management platform. This was recommended to me by Jarrod Robinson (Mr Robbo the PE Geek – a very helpful guy).
How to export from Google sketchup to opensim. My students and I are testing this.
Sue Waters’ favorite activities from the student blogging challenges. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Here are the winners of the homeschool blogging awards. Some good ones here.
The hashtags homeschoolers use. I find it interesting how educational conversations of all types are melding together on Twitter- a great leveler. Many of these hashtags will be recognized by mainstream educators.
