The downside, I am not sure the school year will ever end. The upside, I get the chance to test out some of the new apps we have been reviewing for class along with some that I have been reading about online.
I started the day taking a picture of my backyard and using Pic Stitch ( free download that allows you to put photos into a frame/collage on your phone or ipad) along with a summer photo I had on my phone and made a post comparing summer/winter!
Some of the things I will be working on today, include blogging, twitter and Google+ for connecting along with revisiting a few apps/features that we covered in class.
