Recommended iPad Book Apps for Older & Struggling Readers Ages 10 and up | The Digital Media Diet

Recommended iPad Book Apps for Older & Struggling Readers Ages 10 and up | The Digital Media Diet | Apps for the Student-Centered Classroom | Scoop.it

Of all the requests for recommendations I get, the most common seems to be from parents & teachers looking for book apps for children in 4-6+ grades (ages 10-12+) who are struggling with basic reading skills.

 

“What can you recommend for my students who are in 5th grade but read at a much lower level? They think most picture books are ‘babyish’ so anything that will appeal to them would be much appreciated.” ~ Teacher comment from Facebook

 

This is one of the comments that stands out as representing the overall tone of these requests. So this list, not really a top 10 but more of a reading list, is my top recommendations for children who are not quite at grade level for reading skill but need books with topics and stories that appeal to their maturity level and interests. These are books with a variety of subjects. Many have the option for narration with highlighting word-for-word. I’ve broken them down into categories instead of a ranked listing, to aid parents & educators as they select book apps for older readers. As I come across new titles, I will add them to this post. If you have a suggestion for this list, please let me know in a comment.

Personalized Learning Toolkits: Designing New Pathways for Each Child

Personalized Learning Toolkits: Designing New Pathways for Each Child | Apps for the Student-Centered Classroom | Scoop.it

Personalizing learning is different than differentiating instruction. It means...

- students know how they learn so they are prepared for today and their future as global citizens;

- students are co-learners and co-designers of the curriculum and the learning environment; and

- students own and drive their learning.

 

From the Global Education Collaborative Conference presentation "Personalized Learning Toolkits:  Designing New Pathways for Each Child" by Barbara Bray and Kathleen McClaskey on November 17th who also developed a website to include a wealth of resources shared on personal learner profiles, personalized learning models, guides, maps and digital backpacks.  Share this resource far and wide!
