An iPad was certainly not in our budget, though both my husband and I, as educators, do recognize the value in the device for our kids, for teaching and learning. (And heck, let’s face it, for ourselves, too–for reading, shopping, organizing, gaming, and all that good stuff!)
So while I was at Evo Conference last week, speaking on a community-building panel with my pals Allison McDonald and Thien-Kim Lam, I jumped at the opportunity to win one of these rockin’ devices. And to my complete and utter surprise, I won!
I’m a bit baffled.
I have this brand-new, totally amazing, state-of-the-art device, a tabula rasa. And an overwhelming app store packed with games and resources for kids–sneaky teaching and learning at its best. But I don’t know where to begin.
I need YOUR help!
Here’s the skinny. . .
