Google Sheets: Click Here to Tweet
+Alice Keeler strikes again! This time she shares a Google Sheets template where you can enter a list of Twitter messages. A link to tweet each one is automatically generated. You can indicate a hashtag to attach, which makes this great for hosting Twitter chats!

I'm kind of partial to the Justand Go, but both are great options for portable tablet/document camera stands.
If you happen to travel with your iPad or tablet and use it to present, you might be interested in a portable stand. Until recently, iPad stands where not very portable and impractical for me to take on my travels. Now I have two great options that fold flat and fit in my backpack.

Want more resources/reading lists/links/strategies/suggested toys and ‪‎iPad‬ ‪‎apps‬ to use in treatment?

Want to help kids with ‪‎Autism‬ and ‪‎special needs‬ better orient to person/place/time so they can develop more age appropriate social communication skills?

Stay tuned for my new book "Autism Intervention in the iEra"......

Here's food for thought :-)

Please Share Your Center IdeaI’m working on my next video podcast, and I’d love to mention you and your idea/tip/tool/strategy! The topic is “Spruce of Your Classroom Centers with Technology.” So if you’re a teacher who uses centers, stations, or task cards, briefly write about an idea you have for improving them. Thanks for contributing! —Tony Vincent (@tonyvincent)

Adobe just released a new iPad app for storytelling called Adobe Slate. It's free and generates really classy webpages from your words and photos. Here's one I made: slate.adobe.com/a/20Kw9

Adobe just released its newest free storytelling iPad app, Slate. Adobe Slate is simple software for creating and publishing webpages that look great. It’s a sister app to Adobe Voice, so if you’re familiar with Voice, you’ll feel right at home in Slate.

As humans, we need some power and we need some freedom. Battles and boredom are often a result of students not feeling that they have power and freedom.

The apps I get most excited about are ones that are open-ended. I like to make things, and I love it when an app empowers students (and teachers) to create digital productions. Shadow Puppet Edu, Adobe Voice, and TeleStory are three apps that facilitate creativity.
