We know most learners learn best with something visual. Make it interactive, you will have a much higher chance for it to really take root. Enter explania.com, a site with nothing but animated explanations. Want to know what the flu is? How RFID chips work? Or see the human heart (embedded file above), then check out this site. Lots of good resources for teachers and any learner.
So you want to deploy a set of devices, Android of course, to your students. How can you maintain the same files and applications? How can you ‘see’ the files on each, without having to really take a look at all of them. You need Air Droid, obviously! The most important thing, it being free, will definitely allow you to deploy this in schools or at home personally. Some of the things it will help you do include:
- transferring files between devices and computers
- installing and uninstalling apps using batch processing (worth it’s weight in gold if you have even two devices!)
- preview the photos on a device (so you know what a student is doing)
- share text between the two–sharing links, directions, etc

Yes, I finally have tired of using Winamp for my music management. I mostly use it to organize and transfer my playlists to my portable Cowon player. At the time, Winamp was the one thing that would recognize the Cowon and transfer playlists. In just opening it up recently, I noticed it did recognize the Cowon. So I figured I would try to create some playlists to see if they would transfer, hence the reason for the Laurie Berkner playlist–made for my daughter! Sure enough, they transferred to the Cowon.
So I will get it a try again. I tried to use it awhile ago, since it is an open source project. Yup, the same folks who make Firefox, Mozilla, run the Songbird project. I really like some of the features, like having tabs to search for things while you organize your playlists. Lots of plug-ins, like Firefox, as well.
And now they have an Android app as well! So we’ll give it a try!
