Disconnect Kids

Get Disconnect Kids on the App Store. See screenshots and ratings, and read customer reviews.
Gust MEES's insight:

 

Disconnect Kids is a fun and unique educational app that teaches children (and their parents) about online privacy. Disconnect Kids also actively blocks requests for data about your web-browsing and in-app activity from the biggest mobile tracking services.


It’s the first (and only) iOS app that stops this personal data from ever leaving your device.

Lou Salza's curator insight, May 13, 2013 5:11 PM

Let's encourage all our kids to own and tell their stories! We begin by telling stories we learn from others, then we start making up our own. Next we tell our story to ourselves and those we love. When we construct the narrative of our journey we gain agency over our days, our experiences and our lives. Tell your 'own' story to 'own' your life! This is the very definition of self advocacy.--Lou

Gust MEES's insight:

** Featured by Apple on New & Noteworthy **

"Hashtags and to do lists — together at last"
-TheVerge

Fetchnotes makes productivity as easy as writing a tweet. It's a unique cross between note-taking and to do listing that helps you forget less, do more and feel in control.

Put @ in front of a username to send it to that person. 

Don't be boxed in by complex tools you'll never use. Just dump things down the way you think:

#music, #gifts, #watch, #read, #ideas, #groceries, #beer, #quotes, #email

Fetchnotes: your mind's best friend.

✔ Absolutely free
✔ Easy to organize, easy to share
✔ Access on ANY device
✔ Add notes via SMS, email and voice

18 Great Science apps for iPad

18 Great Science apps for iPad | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it

Gone are the days when you would have to attend those boring classes and spend hours listening to  the teacher lecturing about abstract scientific concepts that are more perplexing than illuminating.


I said perplexing because they lack a very important  learning principle that make them unlearnable: they do not connect to the  ' embodied experiences ' of the learners and what James Paul Gee meant by this principle is that for learning to be effective it needs to connect to the learners life, experiences, and environment.


===> When learners are able to make such connections their comprehension improves and becomes more solid. <===
