Gamify your classrooms with Kahoot. | ipadders.eu | Best Apps for Education | Scoop.it

"This week I’ve been getting excited about using Kahoot in the classroom. Kahoot delivers online quizzes and surveys to your students.


It works very similar to the more well-known Socrative. The teacher displays the question and the answers on the beamer or tv in the front of the classroom. The students see the corresponding icon and color on their screen. They have 30 seconds to answer on their devices and get points for every question they answer right. The quicker they answer the more points they receive. After each question the top 5 students are shown on the board with their scores. This is where it gets exciting. The students love this immediate feedback and want to get to the top position. I have never seen students so focused on answering the questions correctly."

This looks great. We will be adding it to our toolbox of student response apps for the upcoming school year. Thanks for sharing.

We’re going to show you the ins and outs of this app and turn you into a pro user. Because everyone needs to know how to make a photo of themselves swimming in a tub of ice cream."

I Finally Can Use My iPad 1 Again

I Finally Can Use My iPad 1 Again | Best Apps for Education | Scoop.it
I've mentioned before that I'm extremely disappointed in Apple's decision to completely abandon the iPad 1.  It was released in April of 2010 and I received one for Christmas that same year. In September of 2012 Apple released iOS 6. But, it was not available for the iPad 1! So, for me, my iPad 1…

An app called "Action" can make your iPad 1 and other dormant tablets useful again. This makes $$ sense.

This is a fantastic tool for engaging anyone with picture or video for behavioral feedback, or for social stories and language development.  Very easy to operate and free.  Social stories for kids are a snap.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, March 23, 12:16 PM

This is a guest post from Greg Kulowiec of EdTechTeacher.org, an advertiser on Free Technology for Teachers. 

Publishing student video that is created with iPads can be a challenging process, especially with younger students. Even schools that are Google Apps typically decide to turn off YouTube uploads to the student accounts. However, with the use of a handful of free applications, students can create video content on iPad, share their creation with a teacher, and then have the teacher upload to their YouTube channel or a class YouTube channel.

Most of these link to advertisements for commercial brands or websites that no longer exist
john dimitriou's curator insight, March 26, 6:58 AM

Asking students to create or identify themselves through an avatar to explain how something works or how it is made allows students to package information in a way that it helps them to unpack knowledge. Becoming personally and emotionally invested helps to engage learners. They take ownership.
