Good Afternoon SCH,
(Feel free to add comments to this thread in the “comments” field at the bottom)
So let me start by telling I’m a proud new owner of the iPhone 4S! Â See the infographic below for several of the key features that Apple fooled me with in their latest advertisement:
Although I’m a bit disappointed that my new device won’t do my taxes or my hair, or exfoliate my skin (please note, I don’t exfoliate, but I’m pretty sure I would if my phone would do it for me), I am extremely excited about Siri’s functionality. Take a quick listen to this clip of me proposing to my new iPhone!
0 for 1 with my wedding proposals! Â At any rate, that’s anÂ example of some great Artificial Intelligence!Â BTW, I’m available for Siri tutorials all week.
As I mentioned in my previous post (which I’m guessing not many of you read given the lack of comments! Â But maybe that was just because I left out the humor?? Â Note to self, always begin your blog posts with the funny stuff & stay true to your hilarious comedic background, Vince!!) once app developers begin writing apps with the Siri functionality in mind, the possibilities are endless.
Before I continue with some must-read iOS information, here is this week’s Daytime schedule:
Cherokee campus:Â Day 1 – Wednesday from 10:30 – 11:30 in the Carpenter Gallery.
WG campus: Day 2 – Thursday from 12 – 1 in the Exchange.
If you’re unavailable during those time slots and would like to meet face to face, please shoot me an email.
Now suppose you purchased a new iPhone or iPad 2 and you’re hoping to find apps to help you get the best educational value out of this device as possible. Â How do you find and evaluate apps? Â I’d love to hear some of your suggestions or methods for finding valuable apps. Â Here’s are a fews links

Â I’d love to hear some of your suggestions or methods for finding valuable apps. Â Here’s a few links offering options for app finding/evaluation:
Finally, I’d like to add a resource that I found on the University of Delaware’s iPad institute. Â The institute includes collections of iPad resources including apps, evaluation methods (including additional evaluation sites), Â rubrics for reviewing apps, digital storytelling, lesson planning, integration ideas, and readings on the potential of iPads.
We’re currently looking into possible PD possibilites with this institute, so stay tuned!
