Since returning from a six year hiatus from education in 2012, it's been a steep learning curve.

Things like collecting data and tracking student performance were things I always did but new technologies are now empowering teachers to be able to do this even better.

Two of my favourites are Quick Key and Socrative.

I am adding two more blog posts created by Quick Key users that give insight into how the are leveraging Quick Key in their classrooms.

@Benneypenyrheol: http://mrbenney.wordpress.com/2014/04/14/quickkey-multiple-choice-and-hinge-questions/

@simonrenshaw: http://srenshaw.wordpress.com/2014/03/08/evaluating-the-use-of-hinge-questions-and-the-quick-key-app/

This community is great, maybe we can do some meet ups in person!

Best,
Walter

I would love to take the opportunity to plug my podcast: Staff Loungin'. It's the podcast where teachers talk about teaching and eat their lunches while they do it.

Staff Loungin' is irreverent, funny, often insightful and informative, but never dry. If you are looking for an educational podcast that will make you laugh AND think about your practice you should check it out, here: http://staffloungin.libsyn.com/

Hello everyone!  I thought I would join discussions here and post one of my only blog posts ever.  It explains why we have been using iBooks Author and the Book Creator app to write and publish student work in Apple's iBookstore.  All our books can be downloaded from this site:  tinyurl.com/classibooks
Thanks.
