Here, Richard Byrne talks about how to Mix your own Podcast using a free service from NPR.
Toontastic is a highly rated site (that is currently free because it is in the app store hall of fame.) Download it now onto those ipads while you can get it.
It is for cartooning, tell your story and is great for using with digital storytelling. I highly recommend you get it while you can.
If you're looking for apps, here is another review site from a dad who wants to find “the best educational apps for his kids.” I like that it has the ages. My biggest issue is that we need to start asking what kind of feedback can be given to parents and teachers out of these apps so we can reinforce out-of-app learning on the topic. Apps and teachers and parents should be partners in learning.
