Notes.io - Quickly Take and Share Notes

Notes.io is a new service that offers a simple platform for taking and sharing notes. To use Notes.io just go to the site and start typing your notes. When you want to share your notes just click "short" to have a shortened url created for sharing on Twitter, Facebook, or wherever else you like. It really couldn't be any simpler to use. And while not available yet, they do have plans for enabling file attachments and enabling a printer friendly option.

Applications for Education
Notes.io could be a nice tool for students to use to quickly record and share ideas with each other. If the file attachment option becomes a reality it could make it easy to share documents with each other too.

Show Me App Now Available - Create & Share Lessons on an iPad

Show Me is an iPad app that I initially wrote about in April. At that time the app wasn't available to everyone, today it is. Show Me is an app for creating and sharing whiteboard-style lessons on your iPad. To support teachers, the Show Me website is building a gallery of lessons developed and shared by teachers. Each day there is a "Show Me of the Day" that is added to the gallery of lessons. Click here to download the app from iTunes.

Watch a video overview of Show Me below.

Applications for Education
For those of you who work in schools that are providing iPads to students, this app could be used to not only deliver short lessons to students, but to have students develop and share short lessons with each other and you.

For those of us who lean toward Android devices, let's hope that Show Me develops an app for us soon. Or for the really ambitions you could try to develop a similar app with the Android App Inventor.
