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, 2014 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.

6 iPad Apps for Creative Writing ^ Edutopia ^ by Monica Burns

6 iPad Apps for Creative Writing ^ Edutopia ^ by Monica Burns | Best Apps for Education | Scoop.it
Creative writing can be a daunting task for students who struggle to think of story ideas or who don't love the writing process. For kids who have trouble putting pen to paper, there are a handful of fantastic iPad apps that just might inspire them to tell a story. Your students will be able to gather ideas, brainstorm and publish writing straight from their tablet.

For students at all levels, creative writing is an important part of English language arts curriculum. Not only do the Common Core State Standards specifically outline the expectation that students should be able to express themselves through the written word, but this is also an essential real-world skill. Students should have the ability to write narratives that tell a story from their own life or a story that they've imagined. The following apps will inspire young writers and give them a vehicle for sharing their work.

My Top 5 Lesson Activities using iPad of 2014 - December 2014 Post

My Top 5 Lesson Activities using iPad of 2014 - December 2014 Post | Best Apps for Education | Scoop.it

As the year comes to an end I thought I would share some of my favourite iPad activities from this year. It was a difficult decision to narrow it down to five but here goes:

 

1.Towards the end of last year my school celebrated it's 150 year anniversary and we carried many activities with the pupils that term looking at the history of the school. One of the activities was to compare then and now photos. We use an app called InstaShake HD App https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/instashake-hd/id595411264?mt=8&uo=4&at=11lIT4  to blend two photos together in different ways. We also carried out this activity during the recent World War 1 week at the school.

 

2. Last term I worked with a PE department to use the iPads to support GCSE students portfolios. One of the activities was to record video of sporting skills from different angles using the iPad's camera and then add the videos into iMovie app to use some of it's features such as split screen, freeze frame and the speed tool. More detail on this can be found here http://sco.lt/8hTUhd   ;

 

3. Early this term I began an activity with Year 6 pupils to gamify stories using Book Creator App We used the hyperlink tool within Book Creator to link text and images to different pages and give the reader options of where the story went by choosing options within a scenario. More detail can be found here http://www.redjumper.net/blog/2014/12/using-non-linear-stories-gamify-books/

 

4. In summer term I worked with a Year 3 class to use the time lapse feature in I Can Animate App https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/i-can-animate/id399760501?mt=8&uo=4&at=11lIT4  ; to capture shadows moving across the playground. We set the iPad up to take a photograph every minute from 9am-3pm. Recently Apple have added the time lapse tool into the iOS 8 camera, although you cannot adjust the time between photos like you can in I Can Animate.

 

5. A few months ago Comic Life 3 App https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/comic-life-3/id891378056?mt=8&uo=4&at=11lIT4  was released and within the many new templates is a newspaper front cover. We used this at school to firstly produce a weekly newspaper for the school news with Year 6 but also during World War 1 week to reproduce historical newspaper front pages of significant events during war.

 

A big thank you to all the great feedback to Teacher Guide to iPad App. Hearing how much it has helped teachers worldwide has made all the hard work worthwhile. The latest update brings a new icon, new categories of subjects and apps, a new design and 12 new ideas. Details can be found at www.ipadteachers.co.uk

 

Wishing everyone a merry Christmas and best wishes for 2015!
