INKspire Kickstarter (Youth Forum)


We’ve got yet another great Canadian Kickstarter project for you!  INKspire is aiming to set up an online community / forum for youth to address the MANY issues we all face in today’s modern society.



WipeChart is here!

Back in December we posted about Wipebook 3, a Canadian Kickstarter project.  I had been following these guys since day one and couldn’t resist jumping in on the Wipebook 3… it was my first Kickstarter Project!   After a bit of a delay, but amazing support and communication, I got my Wipebook 3 and have LOVED using it.  (We will be posting a review very soon!)

Here is a sneak peak at the Wipebook…


New Evernote Pricing!


I LOVE Evernote, and recently they have restructured their services to allow some very important features at a more affordable price.  Take a look at the new pricing options below.


Wipebook 3 Kickstarter!

The newest version of Wipebook is in the last few days of a Kickstarter campaign. I’ve been looking at this since the first version, but i’ve actually jumped in for this model.

The wipebook3 looks really cool, check it out below… (more…)

Audiobook Humble Bundle!


I’m not sure how many of you are familiar with Humble Bundle, a website that has various video game, e-book and comic book bundles at greatly discounted prices, but they have a CRAZY deal going right now.  For about $7 (the average price at the time of writing) you can get everything you see below, minus Mockingjay… but with each of the Hunger Games Audiobooks going for at least $20 this is a steal.  If you are planning on using an audio version of these books in your class and don’t want to worry about using an illegally uploaded version from youtube THIS IS YOUR CHANCE!


30% off at Chapters/Indigo!


This looks like a potentially great deal!  There are some books that just never go on sale, so 30% off of those will be great.  30% off of bargain books is GREAT, looks like it will also work on ‘gift’ items (only the items in that section maybe) and toys.  The fine print, not shown, does say it is not valid on electronics or their accessories though 😦

You will need your Teacher ID, I am guessing your respective ‘teacher cards’ (ie. OCT in Ontario).  You may also need photo ID to match up, so make sure you have some on you.


Scholastic Dollar Deals!


One of the most important things I have discovered as an Occasional Teacher is that your best resources are always other Teachers.  Thanks to the various Facebook groups that have been going through great discussions and ideas this summer… including this great Scholastic Deal!
