Christmas Gift Ideas 2010: Techie Toys

It is time for my annual posting of the latest in technology gadgets for Christmas. So, let’s get the shopping started.

The XBox 360 Kinect is receiving big buzz this year due to the ability to play games with no controller. Sounds fun to me. Cost is ranging in the $299. Great way to get up and moving during the long winter!

Read, read, read. Hot tickets are the electronic book readers. Amazon has the Kindle ranging from $139-189. Barnes and Noble is sporting the Nook from $149-199. Perfect for the person on the go.
You knew I would include the iPad. Yes, it is gaining popularity all the time. You know, they’ve got an App for that. Prices start at $499. It does everything and folks love the touch technology.

 For those who just can’t give up writing with a pencil… the Boogie Board by Amazon may be for you. It looks like a portable chalkboard and has a stylus to write. The cost is $45 and it is like having a digital notepad with you, but you write instead of type.

Watch your favorite shows. Search the Internet. Find an App… all on Google TV. Logitech Revue works with your computer and tv to provide you access to the Web on your television. Your Smart Phone can work as a remote. The cost is $299.

For all the Paula Deen wannabe’s Here is the Digital Recipe Reader. I gotta say, I am pretty stoked about this one myself. It stores your recipes, gives you access to more recipes, has a timer, as a conversion chart feature and information for alternate ingredients. It is kitchen safe also. Right now it is $199.99 on most online sites. Definitely one to consider!

#personlizedlearning starts with voice and choice. A PBL is a great start. To get started, consider @drlorielliott book #pblanywhere that lays out how to go from standards to a PBL.

Excited to share my new PBL online course with you! Thanks @dbc_inc for this opportunity!

Our community unit came to life! We brainstormed wants & needs, planned, & created a community we would like to live in. This year we decided to take our plans to City Hall to share with the people in charge! @isd544otters @teacher2teacher @drlorielliott @DitchThatTxtbk

A short and sweet sesh on #PBL by @drlorielliott hosted by @dbc_inc with @burgessdave and @TaraMartinEDU It's validating to hear that so many others are taking #PBL and #inquiry and running with it!

“It's not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It's our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless.”
