I haven't blogged for a while and I am glad to be back. I am currently pursuing a career in Special education and am excited to change the lives of my students. I was looking at Ipad/Ipod apps and found some to be quite interesting and all free.
This app is a fun and interactive way to learn math focusing on number lines.
This app is an amazing product that can help children on the autism spectrum as well as students with special needs. It can help teach concepts without having to buy cards and is simple. Studies also have shown that Ipad/Ipod really can help those with autism.
This is an amazing product that can give voice to people who have difficulty communicating. This is so important because it allows individuals with communicative issues to really interact with the world.
This tool is fantastic and allows people who are visually impaired to take pictures of things in front of them and it will then read it to them. Imagine how many doors it can open.
How many jerks park in parking reserved for the disabled. This allows users not only to find locations and tell others about locations it also can be used to report illegally parked vehicles.
Like the tool mentioned before this gives voice to people who many not otherwise be able to talk. Additionally it has a cool feature that will give you a more extensive vocabulary list that relates to things near your current location.

Although this is far different then my previous post I am happy to share these Apple apps with you. I know I probably don't have many followers anymore but if it can help one person it will all be worth it. One never know the ripple effect of help one individual. So if you know anybody who can benefit from these apps please share it with them. You never know the difference you can make. I hope this message syncs in.

Cotton Candy

Cotton Candy or for those who speak French barbapapa is one of my favorite carnival snacks. Besides it sweetness I have always liked its distinct taste. Yesterday for the first time in my life I threw out cotton candy. It was the worse cotton candy I ever had. It tasted exactly like benadryl basically it was a chutzpah. I don't understand how someone can screw up cotton candy. Well I guess that's enough fluff for the day.

Save Chuck

Much to my dismay I have discovered that NBC might cancel Chuck. It really frustrates me how great shows keep on getting cancelled. I can understand cancelling a show when the plot is beginning to lag or when episodes are getting boring or stupid but Chuck does not fall into either one of these categories. I find that the most recent episodes have been phenomenal and would say that Chuck is one of my favourite shows on TV. Many TV shows are being downloaded preventing networks from seeing its true fan base. I cannot say that I am innocent but we need to save chuck. I know that not many people read my blog but I urge you to spread the word. For those of you who do not watch Chuck it is worth while. Below is a picture with a link to the website devoted to saving chuck with instructions on how to proceed. Now there are two things to click after reading my blog. Just remember that if the intersect falls we are all in grave danger.

I am finally back

I know that there are very few people who actually read my blog especially due to the fact that I never blog. I have decided to take the advice of my friend Dachs and blog about TV. I hope that will get me more followers. My plan is to get people to think out of the box and yes there was a pun intended.
