A great way to get into using ebooks is to start with some of the free varieties. Ebook readers offer all kinds of accessibility benefits - as well as barriers - and trialling with free books is a good way to experiment with what works for you or your learners.

DyslexicIT's curator insight, February 2, 2013 5:18 AM

And also do not forget that amazon also have some books that are free to download too

Great app for creating and presenting content using iPad. The app is free to download and use.

Get the app here https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bcontext/id515971580?mt=8

Jim Lerman's curator insight, February 11, 2013 8:02 PM

I spent a lot of time checking this app out. It seems to be a really excellent way to create presentations on an iPad and deliver them using a variety of methods -- including screencasting directly from the iPad to any type of device (TV, computer, phone, or other iPads).The demos show uses in dealthcare, education, business, and PR/advertsing. The pricing model is a bit steep for schools, but maybe with enough pressure they will modify that. Looks like an app that offers a great deal of functionality. Do give it a try.

Comment please.

9 Slides enables you to import presentations, add video commentar from your iPad and then export your finished presentations to the web. Great tool for creating flipped learning or for completing project work assignments.

Mayra.Loves.Books's curator insight, March 23, 2013 11:21 AM

Beside using it for blended learning, it can be a good way to practice for a  presentation.

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, March 23, 2013 11:35 AM

Use this one to record your presentation along with your lesson ppts and post  them to your website. Students who miss class will be able to get the whole presentation, not just your slides. This would also be helpful to parents helping students with homework as well.

A Mobile Dilemma

A Mobile Dilemma | Apps at School | Scoop.it
A Critical 21st Century Skill

Now here we are in the year 2014, and things seem to be changing for many schools.

It would seem that the smartphone is finally getting its due as a computer with telephonic capabilities. Our phones are used as computers even as our computers are now used as phones.

An interesting Nielsen study showed that in March 2012, a majority (50.4 percent) of U.S. mobile subscribers owned smartphones. Mobile devices have also replaced desktop computers as the primary access device to the Internet.

I have often thought about this dilemma, too. We have been talking about mobile learning for years now, but it is still 'a new technology' The opportunities for knowledge sharing and learning are endless, but educators still hold back. The millenials are way ahead already.
