Il web come piattaforma per l'editing video, audio piuttosto che per la grafica, anche vettoriale. Indicazioni molto utili per chi viole provare a dedicarsi alla creatività digitale senza spendere molto, se non nulla.

Marcia Pereira's curator insight, April 1, 2013 7:53 AM

I hope that flashcards are not all our students use the ipad/iphone for, but if these apps help them learn, really learn the facts they need to know, then here are a few apps to try. 

Terry Doherty's curator insight, April 1, 2013 9:33 AM

Mixed feelings on this one ... nice to be "green," but are we trading tactile experience for more screen time?

Holland Bass's comment, May 7, 2013 3:55 AM
I like the idea of using an iPad for flashcards, but overall I don't think it is a good idea. Looking too long at a screen can harm your eyes, so the old notecards are still favourable for me.

The Best Free 22 Educational iPad Apps for Kids | Appy Trails | Scoop.it

Kids should be outside in the sun playing with their friends, yeah I know... But what if they don’t want to, and instead are choosing to play games on the iPhone or iPad? Is that such a bad thing? And you as a parent, can you really control that after letting them play with these devices? Isn’t it actually nice to have options? Something we couldn't have had at their age..

PME Technology Integration: Teaching Graphs iPad App

PME Technology Integration: Teaching Graphs iPad App | Appy Trails | Scoop.it
I was looking for an app that could create venn diagrams easily and clearly. My hope was that they could be created and saved as jpg images. Teaching Graphs allows for that, and for many other types of graphs.

I like the idea of students being able to easily create a graph or organizer on their iPad.  (Costs $2.99)
