Flipboard

Flipboard | Android Apps in Education | Scoop.it

This Your Social Magazine. Available for iPad, iPhone & Android.

Rhondda Powling's insight:

This is a tool that I can envisage being used in a number of ways by teachers and students. 

Teachers could create a magazine for their students, whereby they "flip” all the articles, resources, etc they want students to access into the magazine which the students subscribe to. This could also be a ways of sharing professional learning materials between teaching colleagues, with all having access to add content.

Students could create a resource that they could add content to create a “textbook”.  An entire class could have access to a magazine, allowing all the students to add to the “textbook” thus creating a  very rich resource about a given topic or subject.

Game Design Engine, Make Games for iPhone & Android - GameSalad | Android Apps in Education | Scoop.it
GameSalad is the world’s fastest game design engine. Learn to make and publish hit games for free on iPhone, iPad, Android & HTML5. No coding required.
Rhondda Powling's insight:

An authoring tool developed by GameSalad Inc (previously Gendai Games) aimed for the most part at non-programmers. It uses a drag-and-drop interface (using visual editors and a behavior-based logic system) that lets you build your games relatively easily. 

It could be a good tool for teaching game design to students as the drag-and-drop user interface lets students build their own games then publish and distribute the games withing the classroom or more widely.
