I love Garageband.  I love podcasting and giving students an opportunity to use their unique voice.  This is a great way for students to publish or record their own essays.

Increasing Math Literacy with iPads

Increasing Math Literacy with iPads | An Apple a Day | Scoop.it

"Math and I don’t get along.  While we are civil out of necessity, I make it a practice not to do math in public.  It just never turns out well. I think our disharmony can be traced back to the early beginnings of our relationship when my second grade teacher would smack our knuckles with a ruler if we used our fingers when adding.  I was terrified of her and I soon became terrified of math.  It’s been a rocky road ever since.

 

So how ironic that my 100th blog post (insert big fanfare here!) is about math.  I don’t want my students to be afraid of math, nor do I want them to share the same ambivalent feelings I have."

Maybe your special effects budget is five dollars. If you are better at animated shorts than feature films and you’ve got more action figures than friends, then you can make all of the movies you want using iStopMotion for iPad.

14 Ways To Store And Share Files On The iPad

14 Ways To Store And Share Files On The iPad | An Apple a Day | Scoop.it

"iPads are neat little devices that can pretty much do it all: play music, support interactive content, reshape how we think of textbooks, produce high-quality videos, and even take a step back and function as a good old-fashioned typewriter.

 

The iPad does, however, have its share of flaws ranging from those hardware related (proprietary connections that work with Apple and only Apple products), to software (if you want an iPad, you must go through iTunes). And one of the educators’ biggest gripes with the iPad is its lack of storage space."

Logen Lin's curator insight, November 4, 2013 2:02 PM

Nowadays, producing music is really a easy job. When do I say so it is becasue of those apps on Ipad show up. As the technology of electronic musical instruments developed, the quality of the music produced by those pads could be really good, either the professional musicians or some people stopped once because the difficulty of using protools or logic pro could go with that. Make a beat on the plane, record a piece of vocal track on the subway, more possibilities are coming to us. But as the change happend, as a person who wants to be a professional musician, we are facing more challenge than ever before.

Apps in Education: iPad Poster for Primary School

Apps in Education: iPad Poster for Primary School | An Apple a Day | Scoop.it

"It has become increasing clear that many primary or elementary schools are moving into the touch and swipe environment in a big way. This is sometimes part of a system wide decision but many times this decision has been made at the local level in consultation with the parents. In order for this move to be successful we need to ensure that the students have their learning scaffolded in much the same way that we have always done. Introducing iPads into the classroom is not an alternative to good teaching but rather it is another tool that good teachers use. This poster is one that might be used at the very beginning of a iPad program to help the students in their first few days with their devices."

Using Creative Book Builder at Every Level of Blooom's

Using Creative Book Builder at Every Level of Blooom's | An Apple a Day | Scoop.it

"Creative Book Builder is a fantastic app that allows students to create books in epub format, which can then be exported to iBooks and shared with others. There are a variety of instructional uses for this app, from using it as a publishing tool for project-based learning to a summative assessment at the end of a unit.  Students can embed images, audio files, video files, and write text.  The advantage of an epub document over a PDF document is that all of the media will be preserved and available for readers to interact with when the final product is published.  

Depending on how you use Creative Book Builder with students, this app can help students complete tasks that align with every level of the revised Bloom's Taxonomy.  Explore the different ways this app can be used at each level of Bloom's Taxonomy..."

50 Activities To Promote Digital Media Literacy In Students | An Apple a Day | Scoop.it

"Literacy is changing–not at its core necessarily, but certainly at its edges as it expands to include new kinds of “reading.”

 

Digital media is quickly replacing traditional media forms as those most accessible to most 21st century learners. The impact of this change is extraordinarily broad, but for now we’ll narrow it down to changes in how learners respond to the media they consume."
