I’m writing to share some resources I have come across that are quick, easy and offer some great ideas. Last spring, Apple came out with an app called Clips. This is a simple app that creates short video segments complete with transcription of your audio into text, filters, etc.
For more on the app – visit this page
This summer, Apple Distinguished Educators are making short clips on ways you can integrate tech into your classroom. Some are geared to K-12, but many can be applied to any level of education. They are short and you can quickly review a bunch of them to see if you can find any new ideas. They are being shared via twitter under these hashtags(you can view with or without a twitter account):
Not education related, but an example of people using clips – @clipstours
Check them out, I’ll update this post if any new hashtags/collections emerge.
You probably heard about the announcement from Apple last week regarding changes to the iPad Pro and iOS 11. There are some very exciting features that will greatly enhance the feature set and capabilities of the iPad. I have been looking for the best summary of these changes and wanted to share these links. Feel free to shoot me a note if you have any questions.
I will share more if I find some additional information, but for now, we will probably have to wait until September to download and enjoy these great new benefits in iOS 11.

As I write this, the North Shore is bracing for its real snowstorm of the academic year. In this golden age of technology that we live in, there are many ways to “hold class” even though school may be canceled due to weather. This allows you and your students to keep moving forward through your syllabus. Please refer to this video to see some of the ideas for possible snowdays.
