We have been exploring Twitter Feeds in preparation for a PD.  This stream seems to be one of the better ones because it features large images that a Twitter user posts.  I am looking forward to seeing TwitterFountain back in action.

Tactile Keyboards That Rise Out of Touchscreens Are Finally Here

The endless mobile keyboard debate: physical versus digital. BlackBerry advocates and other old-school tech geeks swear by one while literally everyone else has moved on to the other. Tactus Technology thinks there’s no reason why we can’t have both—in the very same device. Physical keyboards that magically raise out of an otherwise flat screen are a dream the company has had for years, and they’re finally ready to sell you on it.

I have heard too many educators mention that typing skills could be lost because the students do not have tactile response using tablet and phone devices.  This sheath for iPads appears to be combatting that issue.  It will be interesting when the first devices are built with them embedded.

This is an interesting app that educators should realize that students know about and therefore recognize how they can use its power to harness learning rather than try to fight against it.
