Two Wonderful Visual Lists of Educational iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Two Wonderful Visual Lists of Educational iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Apps for learning | Scoop.it

"In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices.

The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same."

7 Great iPad Apps to Promote Visual Thinking ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

7 Great iPad Apps to Promote Visual Thinking ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Apps for learning | Scoop.it

Today while I was looking for a citation from " Making Thinking Visible: How to Promote Engagement, Understanding, and Independence for All Learners " http://ow.ly/k2SpU ; , it dawned on me to compile a list of the  popular iPad apps that promote visual thinking. Making Thinking Visible is by all means a must read for those of you interested in knowing how thinking can be made visible at any grade level and across all subject areas through the use of effective questioning, listening, documentation, and facilitative structures called thinking routines. Another book I have in my shelf and which is more or less similar to the one cited above is " Blah Blah Blah: What To Do When Words Don't Work " http://ow.ly/k2Svy ; in which Dan walks his readers through the different practices of making thinking vivid with less words."

There are many choices for iPads as well as Android tablets. Some include plugins that you can pay to add. Some of the more complex apps include the ability to paste in photographs or other images. While there are even note taker apps that include the function for adding audio -- whether from a meeting speaker or from yourself explaining the ideas you are capturing.

 

One thing to consider when using these applications is whether or not you need a better suited stylus. There are a variety now that are more responsive, thinner, use BlueTooth for greater control.

10 Powerful iPad Apps For English And History - Edudemic | Apps for learning | Scoop.it
When I first started teaching English with 1:1 iPads, I was really jealous of the science and fine arts teachers. They had all of the most engaging apps, and I was left with a lowly word processor and an instant thesaurus. Fortunately, so much has changed. I now have the flexibility to duck in and …

It's fascinating to me that the iPad now is even becoming a creation device for top artists such as David Hockney whose exhibit is currently running at the de Young museum for those of you in San Francisco. 


Will that inspire the masses to become iPad painters too?

Loved this point in the author's post re: what iPads SHOULDN'T be. "[It] is more about poor decision making about getting iPads rather than the iPad’s lack of ability to manage the task."

OK this looks interesting but is also slightly disquieting at the same time. At first blush Now could be useful in drawing together information about your day however it's the underlying awareness and aggregation of what might otherwise be sensitive information about yourself that has potential for mischief or worse. Ah well with every advance comes the potential for misadventure or worse. What do others think?
