What Did We Do Today!

WDWDT (available in iPhone app store, web and android coming soon)

http://www.wdwdt.com/


Teachers, Students and Parents finally in sync.

Shortened URL's


Bitly - https://bitly.com/ - no CAPTHCA (Completely Automated Public Test to tell Humans and Computers Apart)


Tiny URL - http://tinyurl.com/ - can make custom tinyurl, has preview feature


Google URL Shortener http://goo.gl



Hint: You can turn in shortened URL into a QR (Quick Response Code) in any browser. To do this copy and paste the shortened url you created in to your web browser and add a .qr on to the end and press enter. You now have a QR Code. (This works great with bitly and goo.gl)

http://goo.gl/SGkZw.qr (Example: add on .qr and press enter)

My favorite QR Reader App is "I-nigma barcode reader" (iphone App)
