iTunes University

iTunes University is a great addition to iTunes because it allows people to subscribe to courses and learn information from across the country. I can take a course from a professor at Harvard, or learn more about technology from the ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education). Below I have linked to some of the courses I personally subscribe to, along with a description of each. You can also upload your own content to iTunes University for your students to download. Imagine the possibilities if you created your own textbook through iBooks Author and also had a corresponding course on iTunes U!

Technology Integration - From Edutopia, this course is the ultimate source for technology tools for the classroom. It is organized well, and not only introduces the tool, but gives a scenario it would be most appropriate for. For example, how to make learning appealing to "gamers" by using interactive technology.

Classroom 2.0 LIVE- Video - Shows you various technology tools and gives information about how to use them and implement them in the classroom.

Google Apps for Educators - If you are ever planning on trying to become a Google Apps for Educators Certified Trainer, this is a great course to take! It shows you how to use virtually every app created for Google.

EDUC627- Reading and Research in Gifted Education - Since 80% of my classes next year will be at the "gifted" level, I figured this would be a great way to learn some new techniques for differentiating instruction and how gifted learners learn best. This is a good refresher if you've taken courses in the past on gifted learners.

What are some iTunes University courses you subscribe to?


  1. It has also been proven by science that people learn better with visuals and sound. So, to teach children with iTunes, it is a very good idea. There are very less universities and schools that do visual teachings these days and even less for sound teachings!

Before the School Year Begins...

I decided that before I can start posting about what I'm doing this year, I needed to share some of my favorite strategies from last year that went really well with the students. I was completely inspired by Kelly Gallagher after reading devouring all of his books at the beginning of the school year! I had the opportunity to go to a Kelly Gallagher workshop at Judson this spring, and it was absolutely amazing! He was so nice when I went up to him (I was terrified and starstruck), and even wrote "You're Welcome" on this piece of paper, because my students actually asked me to THANK HIM for changing the way we read novels in class.  Students + asked me + to say thank you to an author + about school stuff = UTOPIA! Here are some of my abbreviated notes from the day: His TOP Points: Kids should write 4X more than you can physically grade  Students suffer from word poverty. Must get students reading more in order to be exposed to vocabulary. We ne

Another Pinterest crafting project!

Look what I got!!! :) I will be creating this in the next few days  hours, and hopefully it will turn out as nice as the other ones I've seen online! Inspiration: Down the Learning Road It's not exactly the same, but I wanted one that was wider rather than tall. I got the organizer at Home Depot for $16.97! I'm thinking I'll mod podge it instead of paint it, but we'll see! What projects are you working on today?
