Imagine having the endless resources of the library at your fingertips at any given moment just by the touch of a button! Think of the convenience of having your children’s schoolwork all in one completely portable place you can take anywhere. Do you want your children to have fun and be inspired while they learn? Do you want to take away the monotony of spelling drills and times tables with totally fun apps? What if you got emails in your inbox letting you know exactly which skills your child has conquered or is struggling with or what books they have read?
Sure digital technology can be bad if it is abused or overused; but when it is used properly, technology can be an amazing resource. In this class, AnnMarie will share some of the best learning and educational apps as well as organizational tools available on the iPad/tablet. You’ll also learn how to safeguard your family from the dangers of the Internet and its overuse. From meal planning to chore charts to everything in between, the limitless possibilities of these devices make this a class you won’t want to miss!
A passionate mother of seven children, AnnMarie believes her purpose as a mom is to help her children discover and live their life’s mission. Her favorite word is “inspire” and she believes that when you receive inspiration, you should take massive action. One such inspiration was to provide a real-world educational experience for her children, so she and her and her husband, Jerry, gave up their 8,000 sq ft house on 80 acres and to travel the country in an RV with their then-six kids.
AnnMarie is a master at creating systems and procedures that eliminate waste, create efficiency, and reduce redundancy, allowing more time and freedom to do the things that really count. By using her organizational gift, she has created a home and learning environment that is inviting, comfortable, and fun. Her favorite quote is this: “Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of.” – Benjamin Franklin
AnnMarie enjoys reading self-help books (especially Covey), playing Just Dance on the Wii with her kids, traveling, and (most of all) eating sushi. Be sure to follow their family blog at http://inspirationstationfam.blogspot.com
