Beginning with the ASCD SmartBrief.

5 iPad applications that can replace classroom supplies
While back-to-school shopping season is still months away, instructional technology specialist Andrew Marcinek suggests that many traditional items can be replaced by purchasing an iPad for students. He suggests that note-taking be done on the Notability application, and that students use Haiku Deck to help build presentations. Other recommended applications include Edmodo, ShowMe and Google Drive, which helps students archive their work. Marcinek’s blog (2/26)

Ky. high school swaps textbooks for tablets
Eastern High School in Louisville, Ky., lightened the load of its 10th-, 11th- and 12th-grade students by issuing tablet computers loaded with textbooks and other educational tools. Social studies teacher Kristina Sauer said the 1,500 tablets help keep students engaged in school. “These are kids that will go into a workforce that expects them to be proficient with technology. These are students who will go to college and be required to do all of this online work,” said school principal Lana Kaelin. The Courier-Journal (Louisville, Ky.) (tiered subscription model) (3/19)

Also, the SmartBrief for EdTech.
