Had another great week of investigating different apps/tools.  I found myself getting very excited about some – LogoMaker (okay not a huge one but fun all the same), Voki, Flickr (love the map), bubbl.us, and Animoto.  I even enjoyed Jing, although I was not sure how to use that yet with my students.  I think that the use of Animoto for our MCBA book trailers would be great.  Also the use of bubbl.us would be great idea for those kids that do not really buy into organizers.  If we used this to help them to do the prep work, it might make the writing less onerous.  Now, if I could find an app that would take the mind-map and turn it into the written document, I would be the most liked librarian in the world.
