10 Free Education Apps for iPad

10 Free Education Apps for iPad | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

One of the most popular categories of apps on any touch enabled mobile devices is obviously educational apps thanks to the real time, ready-in-hand help students get from them in and outside of their classroom. While there are millions of free educational apps, all of them are not worthy enough for downloading. Secondly, most of the top tier feature rich apps are either not free or offer a much downgraded ‘free’ version that offer a user experience far removed from what they provide in ‘paid’ version. So, finding a handful of free and useful education apps on diverse contents requires some amount of research and that is exactly what we help you to do here. Here below we are introducing 10 free education apps for iPad.

What Does Science Literacy Mean in the Age of NGSS?

What Does Science Literacy Mean in the Age of NGSS? | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Science teachers have a passion for science — the intrigue, the connection to everyday life, and its reliance on evidence. The love of the content drives science teachers to share the beauty of science with students, and not many are willing to forgo content in place of reading for reading’s sake. The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), which promote discipline-specific literacy, are prompting some questions from the science-teacher community: “Why teach literacy in the science classroom?” “Won’t that take time away from science content?”


However, the beauty of discipline-specific literacy is that science teachers do not have to sacrifice scientific practices; in fact, science and literacy blend together beautifully and in ways that support scientific practices. In the age of the NGSS as well as the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), discipline-specific literacy is not just suggested, it’s required if a teacher is to meet the demands of current standards.

Let's differentiate between 'competency' and 'mastery' in higher ed (essay) @insidehighered

Let's differentiate between 'competency' and 'mastery' in higher ed (essay) @insidehighered | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

"Competency-based” education appears to be this year’s answer to America’s higher education challenges, judging from this week's news in Washington. Unlike MOOCs (last year’s solution), there is, refreshingly, greater emphasis on the validation of learning. Yet, all may not be as represented.


On close examination, one might ask if competency-based education (or CBE) programs are really about “competency,” or are they concerned with something else? Perhaps what is being measured is more closely akin to subject matter “mastery.” The latter can be determined in a relatively straightforward manner, using various forms of examinations, projects and other forms of assessment.

Wash. tests online, competency-based program

Wash. tests online, competency-based program | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

College students typically complete a specific number of credits in a certain amount of time to earn a degree, whether it’s an associate or a doctorate.

But a new pilot program involving about a dozen of Washington’s community colleges, including Columbia Basin College, aims to take the issue of time out of the equation.

The colleges are on track to begin offering in January a new online-based degree in business administration that is competency-based, meaning students can move as quickly as they can prove they have mastered what they’re learning.
