The periodic table of iPad Apps

The periodic table of iPad Apps | Technology in the Classroom; 1:1 Laptops & iPads & MORE | Scoop.it
I was recently inspired by Sean Junkins' (@sjunkins) periodic table of iPad Apps. I thought it was a really useful too - being able to map Apps to activities - I thought it a really helpful too. Wi...
Cyndi Danner-Kuhn's insight:

This is a very nice, organized table of iPad apps for use in the classroom.  If you are new to iPads in your classroom, this chart will be very helpful.  Mark even has a High Resolution version you can print.  I'll be sharing it with my colleagues in the College of Education at Kansas State University.  We are 1:1 iPads and our education Block instructors are really looking for ideas and apps to support their curriculum.  

 

I think I am going to have some printed poster size to put up in various classrooms to help students decided on apps for projects or to serve as reminders.  

 

Thanks Sean and Mark for creating both versions.

I first started learning about the Maker Movement in education and makerspaces in late 2013.  Since then, I’ve been using this page to compile and curate some of the best articles, videos, blogs, books and other resources that have helped me along the way.  My hope is that you will consider this a go-to resource as you progress along your own Maker journey.  No matter whether you’re just getting started with makerspaces or are looking to grow your program, there’s something here for you.

Why We Need Creative Classrooms (A Manifesto) - A.J. JULIANI

Why We Need Creative Classrooms (A Manifesto) - A.J. JULIANI | Technology in the Classroom; 1:1 Laptops & iPads & MORE | Scoop.it
A little over a year ago, John Spencer and I tossed around an idea for a book called The Creative Classroom.  Given our combined experience with design thinking (as educators, leaders, and people who actively engage in creative work), we planned out a solid book on the topic. We wrote the kind of book we thought education publishers would want us to submit. It was decent. It was informative. But then Dave Burgess contacted us and said, “I’m not interested in an education book. I’m interested in a manifesto. I’m interested in a bold statement telling the world the heart and soul of what you are about.”

Dave encouraged us to make this book our own – to write the kind of book that we would have wanted to read as teachers. He also wanted this book to be fully ours, including John’s sketches throughout and on the design of the cover. But more importantly, he encouraged us to abandon the idea of writing a book we were “supposed” to write and instead write the book we felt we needed to write.

And that’s exactly what we did. John and I tossed the outline. In fact, we scrapped the entire first draft. We focused on a single idea: that every child deserves a creative classroom and that design thinking can help make that happen in every classroom with every child. We dove into research. We asked hard questions. We interviewed tons of teachers doing amazing things. We fine-tuned the LAUNCH Cycle, adding some key components often missing in design thinking. We ended up with the book that needed to be written and something I am truly proud of authoring with John:

LAUNCH: Using Design Thinking to Boost Creativity and Bring Out the Maker in Every Student.

And while the internet offers a plethora of free content, there are times when it’s worth it to pay a little extra, Holden said. Those times could include when materials are done exceptionally well, when a resource is very unique, when an educator finds things he or she will use more than one time, or when it would cost more time to find exactly what an educator is searching for.

“As a teacher, you know there are not enough hours in the day for you to do everything you need to do,” Holden said. “Anything that can save time is worth my money.”
