Wow! It’s 2011! 2010 rushed by so fast. Sorry for not posting in 18 days but quite a lot is taking place and I have been trying desperately to catch up! Usually, I do an update of each month but since it’s the New Year I’ve decided to also update you about the year and upcoming 2011 projects. Sorry if this becomes a long post, but as you know there are several tips, resources, and tools shared on Teacher Reboot Camp that I don’t want you to miss.

Send the mindmap with the attachments through email. Free version available on the iPhone. This is my recent review of this app which gives several ideas on how to use it with students.
