Running with Pages of Evernote

Hello Everyone, I’m pulling double posts on this Tuesday morning and I’m going to kick it all off with a great App Dice Apple Watch roll. I have two seniors who just recently received the Apple Watch as an early graduation gift and Wednesday is our annual Track & Field Day. We are planning a lot more PE Tech activities with iPad and GAFE in the fall and I thought we would do a great test since we are big users of Evernote in middle school and high school so I rolled by App Dice and look what I came … Continue reading Running with Pages of Evernote

I calculate a sticky situation

Happy Monday Everyone, If you were watching my twitter feeds on Friday you can see I made some new App Dice around the Apple Watch.

Stick Around with Captain America and Apple Watch History

   How is everyone today? I’m feeling great, very inspired, its Wednesday. For those who know me, Wednesday is always my favorite day of the week. Why you might ask? New comic books come out on Wednesday (unless there is a major holiday).

The most recent was the blu-ray edition of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. One of the best comic book movies made so far, did you know you can … Continue reading Stick Around with Captain America and Apple Watch History
