    My class loved Bluster, Opposites, Jumbled Sentences (3 and 4) Tic Tac Toe Phonics (green background) and we used Spelling City for practising words (this works best if you load lists up first through the website)

    We are only just starting on this journey so am interested to read your list.

    In relation to "so only our domain can log in" - is that what is called enrolling the device?  where I would hit ctrl e and enter in any email address that in our case ends with @stmaryshastings.school.nz?????

    Thank you Aaron - that is a great suggestion!!

    The videos I was in the process of uploading were from powerpoints so not sure if I can embed them but certainly something new for me to learn :)

    Thanks Marnel

    I should have been patient and waited for your text!!  I have only signed up for one month so might email them during the month.

    I love Kidblog - it is easy to use and manage.

    However, I have used up my free storage with all the movies of my kids work that we have uploaded.  I am just wondering if anyone has upgraded to the premimum membership?

    Thanks Eric

    That was going to be my next question.  After having saved  some to dropbox, I couldn't work out how to then open them in anything other than dropbox!

    I had the grand idea to load School Journal tracks onto my laptop to then put on my class iPads (4) to use as a listening post.

    Tracks loaded to iTunes on laptop - check.

    Connected iPad 1 to laptop to which it then downloaded everything from iPad to laptop (is this normal??)

    Figured out how to sync to iPad using iTunes and now have tracks in "Music" app to access.

    Following this success I connect iPad 2 - message comes up to say that it is assigned to a different iTunes store/laptop (which will be the one our IT person used to set iPads up when we first got them) and then gave me the option of connecting to my iTunes but in doing so would erase the iPad - I hit cancel!!

    Not sure what to do now.

    iPad 3 did the same thing and iPad 4 wanted me to connect it to my iTunes but I didn't know if I was supposed to do that as an new ipad?????????

    So - do I want to erase 2 iPads so they can be connect to my iTunes??? and do I set up new iPad for the other one???

    Or is there someother way to get tracks from laptop or the one iPad I have loaded them to??

    Any advice greatly appreciated

    Thanks Barbara

    Printopia is what we had been looking at :)

    Just wondering what others do if they want to print from iPads.  We currently use apps like photosync etc to transfer photos/poplets to laptops but if there is an app to take out this middle step that would be great.
