Geohelper 0.1.3 (Freeware)

As those of you who know me already know, I am an energetic Geocacher. If you are interested in taking up Geocaching, you might want to take a look at Geohelper so that you can carry the most up-to-date cache information with you on your handheld. Nice thing about this is that you don't have to print and carry around all those cache descriptions!

JotLog Update

We are waiting for the new version of JotLog as the current version doesn't work 100% correctly with the Tungsten E2. The issue with the E2 is that the drawings are not saved with the notes. But if you have a Tungsten E, JotLog works great!

Sketcher V2.0 (freeware)

Sketcher is a great little drawing program that can be used in vocabulary instruction similar to my previous Jotlog posting. The one thing that I really like about this program is the fact that when students open Sketcher, they view the picture that they have drawn first and then they can access the notes that they have written to describe the picture. This is a great way for kids to non-linguistically represent vocabulary words.

NOTE: We are waiting for the new version as the current version doesn't work with the Tungsten E2. Works great on the Tungsten E!
