Top 200 Special Education Apps

Top 200 Special Education Apps | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it

As a reader of this blog, you might have noticed that Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has a particular focus on the use of iPad in education other than any other tablet in the market.We do in fact love other tablets especially Motorolla Xoom, Samsung GalaxyTab 10.1, and LG Optimus tablet and we do believe they have a promising potential in education as well but for now it seems that iPad is leading the mobile learning revolution. This is probably due to the kind of investment Apple is having in education.

Twitter bug gives 3rd-party apps access to users' Direct Messages

Twitter bug gives 3rd-party apps access to users' Direct Messages | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it

"There should be millions of Twitter users that have signed in with Twitter into third-party applications. Some of these applications might have gained access to and might still have access to Twitter users private direct messages," he points out, and advises users to check third-party applications permissions and revoke the apps to which they never gave permission to access their DMs.

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. <===

“While these apps make our lives easier, they also give a wider group of application developers and advertising networks the ability to collect information about our activities and leverage the functionality of our devices.

 

According to Hoffman, more concerning is that many apps collect information or require permissions unnecessary for the described functionality of the app. He says this is not the first time this issue has surfaced, with reports of popular apps collecting irrelevant information or transmitting data when devices are turned off leading to significant backlash.
