13 Free iPad Spelling Apps to Easily Teach Kids to Spell Correctly

13 Free iPad Spelling Apps to Easily Teach Kids to Spell Correctly | Technology in the Classroom , 1:1 Laptops & iPads  and MORE | Scoop.it

I don't know if you share the same view or not but many people say that using technology, word editors and other online writing platforms that provide automatic spelling correction weakens our spelling skills and increases the chances of making spelling mistakes once using a paper and pen more than ever before. Well at least from my own experience as a blogger and having to always write three articles per day I do depend a lot on auto-correction and still I would get emails from people saying there are some typing ( not spelling ) mistakes in my posts ( I am sorry about this but my time constraints do not permit me to scrutinize every word I type in and I am sure you understand it ).

Back to School With Google Docs

Back to School With Google Docs | Technology in the Classroom , 1:1 Laptops & iPads  and MORE | Scoop.it

Last year all of the students in our school district received Google Docs accounts and I was kept quite busy all year getting students up and running and then finding innovative ways to use the tools for learning. Upon reflection,if I got the opportunity to do it all over again there are three things I would make sure to do at the start of the year to kick off Google Docs.

1. Encourage Teachers to Create an In Box with a Google Form

One of the challenges of using Google Docs with a class full of students is in managing all those Google Docs. While it's fairly easy for students to learn to share their work with you, the clutter that ends up in your email box can be overwhelming. Last year I was thrilled to discover an awesome idea from John Miller that utilizes a Google Form as an Assignment Tracker. The idea is innovative, efficient and simple. Here's how John's invention works:

Lesson planning is stressful and time-consuming, but is important in giving us an action plan for the entire school year. The way we design our curriculums and the activities we use will determine how successful our learners will be in grasping new knowledge. Lesson design and planning is important. We have our often mandated objectives as the seeds of our curriculum. They act as the vision, goals, and foundation. From the objectives, spring forth activities and ideas. They are the roots of our curriculum.

Free Technology for Teachers: 5 Video Projects to Try With Your Students | Technology in the Classroom , 1:1 Laptops & iPads  and MORE | Scoop.it

Video creation projects are some of my favorite things to do with students. I like video projects for a number of reasons not the least of which is that students generally enjoy them too. I like video projects because when they're organized properly students have to write, research, produce, and revise just as they would if they were writing a story or research paper. The difference is that shared finished video projects have the potential to reach many more people than a well-written essay does. Another bonus is that I can invite my administrators into my classroom to watch a few short videos and they can quickly see what my students have been doing
