Random questions on special interests, typing, iPad apps, good computer games for learning, etc.
- Our 8th grader-to-be loves anything to do with Aviation. How could I utilize his interest in this to teach him more besides finding random internet tid-bits, any ideas?
- If kids have other special interests, what's the best way to pursue those? Around here we love jets, weather, birds, etc. I'm just wondering if you know of any good places to learn more interesting facts about those?
- We're thinking of getting an iPad because I heard there are some amazing apps for teaching. Do you think that's worth the money? Which apps do you recommend?
- How do you teach typing? I'll probably just use a computer program that I already have for that, but I'm open to your suggestions. Ohhh, I just found this Spongebob Squarepants Typingprogram that they'd probably like!
- Have you heard of the book, Drawing Textbook, for teaching process drawing? A friend highly recommended that, and I think we'll do it, she said it just takes about 15 minutes a week.
