Technology Integration Tools and Ideas 

    1. Access My Library One of my favorite library apps... it allows you to have access to all of North's Gale Resources. "After a simple, one-time log-in using your library's password,* the mobile app will give you free, unlimited access to your school library's reputable, authoritative Gale online resources — anytime, anywhere!"(Gale) This allows you to have them at your fingertips, once password is plugged in once, no need for any other passwords for the Gale resources. Give it a try you will be glad you did!   eg/14 2. Educreations, I have used this app to create the help video for iPads located on this web site. click here to see an example.. don't be to critical my first attempt! :)
Pros: It is easy to use, little prep required, students will find this a breeze to use,you can make a lesson private or public, You can create a video and share the link to webpages, wikis, etc. Cons: You can't go back and correct the video once you have recorded your voice. You can start over, but not edit once you have added voice instructions, I recommend that you use a story board to plan your video, makes recording go smoother, it allows you to prepare the slides for your presentation before you record. Story board I used, feel free to use or send me any changes that you feel would work better!   Link to a professional review with more information: eg 3/14
