Currently Im chatting to Finnish teachers who are also using iPads in the class and a teacher in outback Australia using tools to improve literacy rates amongst the indigenous community. I really recommend connecting globally to ensure your students benefit by access to Best Practice.

It a fabulous professional learning tool. Start by using #ipadchat, #socrative when sharing on Twitter. • Consider connecting your Twitter account to the Flipboard or similar App to connect and learn together. • I look at Twitter for 30 mins a day and add some off-line mobile reading using the Instapaper App.

I use Evernote. • You could reflect and share your thoughts by creating a professional learning blog. • You could make your blog an E- Folio following your professional learning . Maybe design a rough plan of how you would apply it in your class. Blog about it afterwards.
