The Sight Words app for the iPad or iPhone is a great way for kids to practice and learn their reading site words.
(Note: I did not receive any remuneration for reviewing this app.) My three oldest grandchildren are now in school and are learning to read. As part of that, they have to learn sight words. Much of that learning is not-so-thrilling rote learning. Sight words. Sight work. Ugh! There’s only so […]

The Easy-Macro lens attaches to your cell phone with an elastic band. It's fun to use and very inexpensive!
(NOTE: I was NOT paid to write about the Easy-Macro lens nor was I given a free one for review.) A while back, I saw some nifty little camera lenses that attached via a magnet to your cell phone’s camera. I swooned. I fell in love. I coveted. (Read that […]

Hopscotch is a free award-winning app that let's you make games. Great for kids!
Here are some disturbing facts. Only 29% of all employees in the most influential U.S. technology companies (like Google, Facebook, Twitter, Apple, Amazon etc.) are women.
