Need help from the hive if I may. My mom and dad both need smart phones. I'd like to buy two identical phones from Swappa, but I'm on a 'reasonable' budget. I'd be willing to pay up to $130/phone.
I'm looking for suggestions on phones from a couple of years ago. I'm thinking phones like the LG G5, maybe the Moto X, possibly a Samsung Galaxy 5 or 6.
My mom and dad are seniors and my mother's mental capacity is declining due to Alzheimer's and dementia. She may have one more year of contemporary cognitive ability. The purpose of getting identical phones is so that my dad can assist with my mom's phone until she is no longer capable of using it.
Question #1 - Is Swappa the only game in town for used electronics?
Question #2 - What do you think about my initial candidates I listed above?

All feedback is a gift, so thank you in advance.

Happy New Years too!!!

Elementary Music Creation App: SoundForest #MusicMonday

via mustech.net

Thanks to a post from Matt Patrick Walsh in the Elementary Music Teachers Facebook Group, I was able to discover the music creation app SoundForest. As stated on the website, “SoundForest is a mini music maker that allows you to instantly compose a song using a collection of musical creatures. Compose a loop by tapping animal instruments and mix them into a hypnotic tune. Create a musical ecosystem with SoundForest.”

I'd be interested on feedback from the hive; good, bad or indifferent.

I worry that when we focus too much on the good things that people do after mass shootings, we start to lose focus on the tragedies.

> Oh! The first responders were valiant!
> Wow! The surgical teams worked like inspired Gods in saving so many lives.
> Individual stories of heroism

All of the things above are GREAT stories of how humans made a shitty situation, better for others. BUT what we're not hearing is a lot about...

> Who the 59 murdered were
> How "Bob" will now now be a paraplegic
> How Carlos has irreversible brain damage

For complete clarity, I never want what happened in Vegas and Newtown and dozens of other places before to ever be reflected on without first and foremost remembering the horror, devastation and tragedy.
