Where do you start? I feel like a kid in a candy store! There are so many out there, you can’t pick just one.
Without having a lot of experience in creative applications, being the ‘digital immigrant’ that I still feel I am, I had no idea of where to start. So I tried Google. Big mistake. With the power of the biggest search engine around (I think?), I ended up with way too many choices.
Not only does a search of any kind bring up many choices, but there are other blogs who think they’re helping by doing the dirty work for you. Here’s just a few:
Today's Apps Gone Free
The 4 Educational Apps Featured in Chrome App Store This Week
40 Sites and Apps for Creating Presentations
I know they’re trying to help, and they even try to give you some further info, to understand what each of them actually do. But overwhelming? You have no idea! Or maybe you do too …..
Anyway, just as my head was threatening to implode, in the final crossover to insanity, I found myself thinking of a line from a favourite children’s story book from when I was little -
Millions of Cats, by Wanda Gag, featured on this blog by Orange Marmalade. The line gets stuck in my head quite often actually…
It takes me back to a time when life was much simpler. I hope that we never truly lose those things from our childhood that gave us such innocent pleasure. Maybe with the promise of ICTs, we can find new ways to share them with our children and our students.
But in the meantime, if you ever get a chance to read some of these books mentioned, maybe you can share my earworm with me. ;-)
