Creating a 21st Century Learning Environment - Reflections on Tools, Resources, and Strategies
Thursday, October 6, 2011
I have just downloaded the Pulse App for the Xoom Tablets, after reading about a similar Ipad app (Zite) that a colleague of mine downloaded for use in his classes. My classroom purpose for this app is for students to use it during SSR (Sustained Silent Reading) Time. Every day my high school devotes 10 minutes for students to simply read. I really love SSR time, because I also get ten minutes out of the day to read!
This app lets students pull info. from a variety of websites to read about topics that interest them. Take a look at this short video review of the app.
