If you are still looking for last minute tech gifts, here are a few more:

GoSmart Rest Pad ($34.95 + shipping and handling) If you are still using a mouse with your computer or iPad, the RestPad will take the pressure off your wrist. It is made from breathable sheepskin and fits any hand. It would also be wonderful for a person with special needs who is hypotonic (having deficient tone or tension).

GoSmart Clip (must be purchased through Amazon) This clip fits on your iPhone and goes right on your steering wheel, enabling you to drive hands-free. It can also go on your shopping cart in the super market. Makes a great stocking stuffer or gift for a friend.

oStylus ($38.00) This is a hand-designed stylus made by a jeweler in Canada. I personally like the way the large O, Andrew Goss’ first stylus, writes and draws. The 6mm O is harder to manipulate. But once you get use to the stylus, it prints beautifully.

Studio neatt Cosmonaut ($25.00) Wide-Grip Stylus for Touchscreens. Here's a stylus for all ages. The grip is comfortable enough to enter notes and fun enough to draw doodles. The stylus glides smoothly on the screen with a tip that can adjust to the different settings with ease. 

Clamcase ($149.00) The clamcase is an iPad Keyboard Case that offers multiple viewing positions. There are versions for all the iPads 1-3 and mini. Touchscreen allows the screen to be in landscape view for any activity and the Tablet position allows use of the iPad just like a tablet. 

Speck WanderFolio Case ($69.95) This case fits the 3 and 4 iPads. It has a "vegan leather" cover providing extra padding and protection. Snapped inside the case are three pockets – a long pocket to hide a few blank checks, a medium pocket for a passport and a small pocket for a license or a credit card. The pad has magnetic closures and multiple stand angles.

Impecca Wireless Bamboo Keyboard and Mouse ($99.95) If you're going green, meet the a full-size Impecca Bamboo Keyboard. This stylish keyboard with a unique appearance is anti-static, antibacterial, sweat absorbent, and stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Just insert the wireless nano receiver into the USB port, insert the AAA batteries into the mouse and the keyboard and you're ready to go. There are four multimedia hotkeys one each for email, browser, calculator and volume/mute function.

Connected Educator Month, Part 2: Guest Post by Becky Blair

If you were to ask people what the best part about being a connected educator is, many would probably tell you that being connected lets you learn more than you would ever learn at your own building. There are so many great opportunities to be had online for free, it's not a shock that people talk highly about it.
