Knight-Time Technology

PixnTell is a presentation app for both the iPod and iPad. It allows the user to take or choose pictures in their camera roll, draw and caption the pictures, and record their voice in a presentation video.

I see a lot of potential in this app as it is fairly easy to operate, and contains so many functions within it. It could be used in any subject area. Students could explain how to solve math problems, correct sentences, discuss a book, share knowledge about a subject, etc.

About Lance Yoder

As I was finishing up my seventh year of teaching fourth grade, I was avidly preparing myself for 1:1 technology. Kids were blogging, making videos, presentations, etc. I was ready for the kids to have a device sitting on their desk all day. The position of a technology peer coach came up. Someone to help teachers implement technology in the day-to-day scheme was what was requested. So now I have a full year under my belt as a coach. Sometimes I teach or assist with lessons involving technology. Sometimes I teach kids how to use apps. Sometimes I collaborate with teachers on how they can replace something they used to do to use the devices that are available. Sometimes I feel like I am the tech department. My job has been interesting in the last year and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I hope to be helpful to you as I bring a few years experience in the classroom as well as one year of heavily becoming a nerd.
