Hi I blog at It is about educational apps on iPhone and iPAD.  Given so many apps out there, it is hard to decide which one is good, which  one is at the level you want.  I hope my work will make it a little easier for the teachers/parents to find the right apps.

I'm an education student from Manitoba Canada and blog regularly about my experiences as a student teacher and my use of the classroom management strategy Whole Brain Teaching. I would love for you to check it out as I would really love for some people in the educational field to share their opinions on this strategy.

I have been wanting to do this for a long time and finally did it. Still working on finding my voice/niche, but I hope to share my thoughts and experiences on all things business, education, and/or technology.

Good morning.....calling all teachers, students, colleagues, etc...

I sincerely apologize if any of you are receiving this message more than once. We are trying to reach as many teachers/students as possible around the world. It's possible that you're a member of more than one of the groups I have joined. My apologies!

My name is Rossel Mulaire. I am a Canadian teacher who has been living and working in Monterrey, Mexico since 2004. For the past two years, I have been teaching 8th and 9th grade Social Studies/World History. My other responsibilities include being our school's Model United Nation's advisor and Social Studies Department Head. I have taught many different grade levels (first through tenth grades), in Canada, South Korea, and Mexico.

I recently started a little project on Twitter with my 8th and 9th graders, tweeting daily about historical facts and events, sort of like a "this day in history". We are wondering if you'd be able to give out our twitter address to students and teachers. Not only wherever you find yourselves now, but anywhere else you may have contacts. We see this as a great way to teach and appreciate history, bit by bit, one small step at a time. We are trying to use technology to reach more students, and to open dialogue with students and teachers around the world.

If you are in a position to help us, please do so by JOINING US ON TWITTER and by sending our twitter address to students and colleagues, past and present. Ask them to follow our many daily tweets. At the moment, we are tweeting about historical events and facts from around the world. We'd love to see students commenting on our tweets, and also, by adding to our project by posting historical content from their respected countries.

We are hoping to hear from teachers and students from all  parts of the world! The students are keeping a record of the various countries following us! Please help out by following us. The more people (students, teachers, family members, etc) we have following us, the more excited the students get. This excitement then becomes a motivator to continue! Help us make learning about history a little more interesting!

Our  twitter address is:

Please feel free to contact me anytime. I'd be happy to answer any questions or doubt you may have.

I blog at Drake English Times  My latest post considers the impact of the "no fail policies" that many schools have adopted.

My blog follows my meanderings through cyberspace where I go in search of sites and tools to enhance teaching and learning. I use the blog as my trail of breadcrumbs so I can find my way back to places I have visited, however if I help engage other in the use of technology all the better.

Feel free to stop by. I hope you find something you haven't seen before.

You might want to check out or for student blogs. They allow for more control and protections. You could set up a class blog and make the students 'authors' or you could create personal blogs for them.
Comment by Shirley Miller on October 14, 2010 at 8:16am
I think students have a "create a blog" connection on their profile page on my blog. Does anyone know if that blog they create would be under the control of our class blog and not be a brand new blog the public could see?

Which students loan should I avail?

Unlike earlier, these days there are hundreds of alternatives available in the market to avail students loan. Since there are so many options present today, it can be confusing for the borrower to choose the one that suits his requirements. This type of loan can be helpful when you do not have enough financial backup to bear with your educational expenses. With the extremely high cost of education in the present day, availing a loan seems to be the only wise way to get through your studies.A…See More
