David Pierce dives into Apple's latest mobile operating system, iOS 7.
Heather Perkinson's insight:
I wouldn't normally post a video when an article is also available, but this video is helpful because the reviewer demonstrates so much of what he describes and because the topic is so dependent upon seeing what the new iOS actually looks like. The article, btw, is here: http://ht.ly/oZHB1
I'm often asked how the rise of eBook publishing is impacting the way students use libraries--this article helps to answer that question. It takes a close, detailed look at two high schools and their experiences with eBooks, including textbooks, and the devices and platforms they've used to deliver them to students.
While we’ve witnessed many effective approaches to incorporating iPads successfully in the classroom, we’re struck by the common mistakes many schools are making with iPads, mistakes that are in some cases crippling the success of these initiatives.
Learning in Hand Show #28 is about some of what's new in Apple's iOS 8. Instead of showing you the major features you might already know about, I demonstrate the lesser known additions that teachers, students, and parents will be interested in.

"2013 has been another memorable year for the iPad App Store. The number of apps designed specifically for the iPad hit the 500,000 milestone this year and is now well on its way to 600,000. By now, there are excellent iPad apps for just about any purpose. From heavy-duty productivity and business apps to wonderful educational apps, to beautiful apps for working with photos and for creating art, music, videos, and more. And of course we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to great iPad games and entertainment apps."
"iPad's monopoly of the ' school tablet market ' is being compromised now after the announcement of Google Play for Education. Google seems to be moving towards displacing Apple's hegemony of this market by providing a suite of productivity management apps made specifically for teachers and students."
"I believe mobile devices will transform education. This is why I created the free ebook below, Effective Mobile Learning: 50+ Quick Tips & Resources, with helpful tips and several resources to help support this trend. When we equip a classroom with iPads, iPods, small tablets, or cellphones the learning is literally put in the hands of the students. The teacher has to facilitate and walk around the room to manage the learning. Below the eBook are additional links to mobile learning resources. I hope this will help any educator new to integrating mobile devices with the knowledge they need to be successful!"
