This and That

I am back at school doing the inservice training.  Since my school needs to work on literacy that will be the focal point this year.  They are having us create a thermatic unit for the high school and we chose navigation so I am starting to research navigation apps that could be used on the iPad during the unit.  We are going to do it at the end of the year after testing.  I found one plan2nav that is a marine navigation app that allows people to plan journeys, look at high resolution photos of harbor entrances and, check tides and currents.  I will run this by one of our teachers in the high school who used to work as a boat captain for fisherman.  He is willing to work with both the science teacher and myself. 
I think I'll download this app tonight and run it by him tomorrow and we'll see what he says. If anyone knows how decent this one is or has used others, I'd love to hear from you.
