This is great for students who can use an and iPad to allow them to "hear" a message, set of instructions repeatedly, or repeat passages for memorization. Definitely something for Special Needs students too.

Growth mindset has changed the way I teach, the way I parent my three boys, and the way I face challenging situations and risks.  It has given me the resilience I need while in graduate school.  Dr. Carol Dweck's book, Growth Mindset, is a paradigm-changing book.  I highly recommend it.  Thanks for sharing this great visual representation of Growth vs. Fixed Mindsets.

Global storytelling with a green screen and iPads - Innovation: Education

Global storytelling with a green screen and iPads - Innovation: Education | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

"These 6th graders found a way to do some digital global storytelling with a green screen and their iPads.

They also managed to bust Tellagami’s animated personas out of the tablet, sending them around the world with a little green-screen magic.

At Edmunds Middle School, two classes of 6th graders embarked on a new form of storytelling: Tellagami-smash! With a fleet of iPads at their disposal, along with the free green-screen app Veescope, students transported themselves or characters made with the Tellagami app to locations around the world."

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

Book creator has probably been the app I have used most, in my teaching, with pupils and in my training. The blank canvas aspect means it can be used across the whole curriculum and the addition of the pen tool in the last few weeks has added to that.

We use Showbie at school for pupils to share their work, including books made with Book Creator from the iPads and home to the teachers for assessment. Recently, we have used both the Pen Tool and Record feature to give feedback on the pupils' eBooks. The pupils send their books using Showbie and the teacher opens them up on his/her iPad. They can then annotate with their voice, pen and text. The book can then be sent back to the pupils using Showbie. The pupil can either change the original book and delete the annotated one or change the annotated book and delete the original.

The screenshot shows a book of a Science experiment. The teacher can annotate with arrows but also add audio feedback. All elements of Book Creator can be deleted so the pupil can restore any annotated book to the original.

This is obviously not a new idea but the pen tool has certainly made this quicker in a widely used app such as Book Creator.
