Share Your Location With Friends and Family Using Google Trusted Contact Andriod App

Recently,Google has released a new Andriod app that allows you to track your contacts'locations in real time.I pretty much like this app as it enables your loved ones know your whereabouts in case of an emergency or just late even if your phone is offline

This is how Google Trusted Contact app works
 you select specific people in your address book as "trusted contacts”, but unlike with iOS’ Find My Friends and Google’s now defunct Latitude, your trusted contacts won’t necessarily be able to see your location whenever they wish. Instead they’ll be able to see if you're "active" (your phone is connected and moving), whether you were active in the past hour, whether your device has a low battery or if it has run out of battery altogether.
Trusted contacts can request your location at any time and you will have 5 minutes to approve or decline it.  If there’s no response your real-time or last known location will be automatically shared in order to "make sure that someone you trust will know how to find you if you really are in trouble."
Conversely, you can manually share your location with a friend or loved one should you want them to know where you are as you walk home late at night. When you are done sharing, simply tap the banner at the top of the screen or from the lock screen and the app will stop sharing your location.

 You can download Trusted Contacts in the Google Play Store

A Wonderful Bloolm's Taxonomy wheel for Ipad Apps

Today while I was browsing through my Twitter feeds I came across this fabulous Bloom's Taxonomy wheel of apps shared by Anthony. If you still recall, some previous versions of this wheel have already been featured here in Bloom's Taxonomy for Teachers section .

As you can see, the wheel outlines a wide variety of verbs and activities related to each thinking level of Blooms taxonomy coupled with iPad apps that go with it. These apps are supposed to help teachers and students better cultivate these different thinking levels in their use of iPad apps. And because the the visual is not hyperlinked, I went ahead and provided the links for each of these apps in the lists below. Enjoy

14 Creative Bookmarks for Bibliophiles

 By Nancy Young
Ebooks have many advantages over print books: convenience, 24/7 availability, you can get the content almost instantly and right from the comforts of home or the office. And yet we are still finding it hard to let go of print.
Perhaps it is the smell of paper, or the sound of a crispy page turning, or thewarm texture of cellulose embedded in the paper. It could also be because ofthe feel of a good book in your hand, the strong hard cover, or the flimsy but always dependable bookmark.
