Inserting Pics and Marking Them Up Is Now Easier in iOS 9 Mail

A couple of neat updates in the iOS 9 Mail app makes inserting photos and then marking them up a lot easier and intuitive.

At an Apple seminar in Jenison today I learned that in iOS 9 the Mail app now has a camera icon above the keyboard when you type in the body of the message.


Once you have inserted your picture, tap it to bring up a toolbar with the new "Markup" choice.


Mark up your picture with a set of drawing, text, and signature tools.


This is a great addition that allows us to communicate more clearly and then saves a bundle of time without having to mark up pictures in additional apps.

Connect With NFL Play 60 Challenge Teacher Materials

The NFL and American Heart Association have been presenting the "Play 60" program for a number of years in attempts to get kids moving and building active lifestyles. Now materials are easier than ever for teachers to access.

The Play 60 Teachers Guide site offers a downloadable teachers manual as well as student challenge journals customized to local teams. Activity can now be tracked online and there are training orientation videos.  Classroom scoreboards and certificates of completion are also available for teachers to download. Resources are also available in Spanish.

In addition to the much shorter four-week challenge, extension activities are provided for making an active lifestyle part of a schools culture once the initial challenge is over. There are also getting started guides and quick tips for keeping kids and staff motivated throughout the year.

Play 60 now also has its own app. It might seem counter-intuitive that an organization committed to getting kids active would create something connected to electronic-induced stillness. The cool thing about the app is that to play the game, kids have to run and jump in place.

Don't Judge these Sorority Girls for Taking Selfies



It was a night out at Chase Field for some sisters from Alpha Chi Omega and the Fox Sports Arizona announcers had lots of fun commenting on the barrage of selfies the girls were taking.

The video quickly went viral with no doubt  the stereo-types of self-absorbed girls completely engrossed in a self-absorbed session of selfies fueling the fire.

When the Diamondbacks tracked down the girls to offer them tickets to a future game, the ladies of A Chi O revealed a completely different side of themselves and their organization. Instead of accepting the tickets the sorority asked that they be given to their national philanthropy A New Leaf,  an organization that supports victims of domestic violence. The sorority is now using the ensuing publicity to generate even more support for the cause.

This is a great example of how quickly society jumps to conclusions about people and how inaccurate they can be. As educators we have to be really careful not to do the same thing in our classrooms by pegging kids with our own assumptions.

Great job Alpha Chi Omega!
