The best way to learn another language is by spending time with it and using it. The instruments are up to the learners. The apps sound like one of the many great tools out there to spend time with the target language.

Olivia Solis Casso's curator insight, December 19, 2012 3:12 PM

Technology is here to stay, and we should use it as an ally; not viceversa.

This is a GREAT article!! It provides at least 10 apps under each of the categories of Spanish, French, German, English, Italian, Chinese, Sigh Language (!) and Miscellaneous. Definitely worth a look if you study/teach any of these languages!

Mobile Apps Permission - Find out what Your Apps are doing [Infographic]

Mobile Apps Permission - Find out what Your Apps are doing [Infographic] | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

Infographics on Case study at Mobile Android Apps Permission vulnerability, starting Apps integration at 2AM on Google Play Store with malware attack on tablet...

 

You might be wondering what this Title means. But it’s the fact of today. While many of us might not know this but this has become a good security point to talk on. Most of the time when we just download any kind of Apps from the Google Play or Android Market, it always prompt to give permission to access the device, and most people including us, actually don’t pay attention to it and simply go ahead to download the app.

 

However, this is just equal to a Bad idea of giving the entire access of your Phone contents to the app which could lead to possible data theft, spam, malware and what not! According to the Research done by us, found us a good evidence that an average Android app always asks for 124 different types of permissions. While we have also found one shocking fact that almost 33% of the App asks for more permissions than the actual required.

Have you heard of the Global Education Database? It collects data from users and allows you to search for apps, hardware, software and web tools. This post looks at the top ten web tools. Each tool has a short description and it hot linked. Click through to the post to learn more. If you would prefer to check out the Global Education Database here is the link: http://www.gedb.org/

* EdPuzzle: Editing and Dubbing Educational Videos Made Simple

* Google Apps for Education: Should Your School Go Google?

* DebateGraph: A Powerful Way to Collaborate and Learn Together Online

* Popplet: A Simple Way to Generate Your Next Big Idea

When you click through to the link in the database you will see an image of the web tool, suggestions on how to use it in the classroom, key information, pros and cons, an overview of the tool, ratings (in five categories), and the "bottom line."

Are you thinking of offering some professional development and would like to explore some new tools? This (as in the Global Education Database) might be a great place to do some searching and check out tools that might meet needs of your school or district!

Students with learning disabilities often have trouble with study skills like getting and staying organized—a crucial executive function skill—and remembering what needs to happen and when. Darla Hatton and her teenage daughter have researched and/or tested these 13 apps, and found them especially helpful. They know that every person has slightly different needs, but it’s worth taking the time to find out which apps work for your child.

Lou Salza's curator insight, May 13, 2013 5:11 PM

Let's encourage all our kids to own and tell their stories! We begin by telling stories we learn from others, then we start making up our own. Next we tell our story to ourselves and those we love. When we construct the narrative of our journey we gain agency over our days, our experiences and our lives. Tell your 'own' story to 'own' your life! This is the very definition of self advocacy.--Lou
