Comments

Most of you do not need to read or be reminded of this comment policy, but given the occasional lack of decorum in today’s digital world, a review of expectations is in everyone’s best interest.

  • This blog loves reader comments so please feel free to write to us. Your ideas and suggestions are also welcome.
  • We approve comments so that we can check to be sure they are from members of the GDS community.
  • Anyone can post an opposite point of view, but please maintain respect and use appropriate language.
  • Spell checking and editing are great things to do, even if you just read your comment over before sending it.
  • The GDS Technology Tips blog reserves the right to edit all comments for clarity, readability, and spelling errors when appropriate.
  • If you get into an extended two-way comment/conversation with another person, consider going private and using your e-mail for communication.
  • A program called Akismet reliably blocks spam on this blog but once in a great while we need to rescue a comment. We apologize in advance and will rescue comments that are mistakenly locked up and post them  on the blog as soon as possible.

  1. I’m using the wonderful Art Appreciation App to show my students painting techniques used by various masters. I download the genre that apply’s to their work and I am able to really blow up the selection to discuss in detail the strokes, color and application of paint. This fall I used one outside to show the master’s work while the students were learning landscape painting. (3G helps!) . I also use it to show them my work as it progresses.

  2. I have been using the Khan Academy website for about a month now and it is a fabulous resource!! I use it when I am tutoring students and they seem to really enjoy it. The videos move at a reasonable pace and can be paused at any time during the lesson for further explanation or discussion. I have found this useful when I want students to practice solving math problems or balance equations and then check their work with the video explanation. I would highly recommend checking this website out! You will love it!

  3. Custom ipad forms

    Does anyone know a good ipad app that allows you to create custom forms and reporting on the ipad?
