Lessons using iPads

I have placed all the apps that I regularly use in my classroom under each of the subjects in the IPAD APPS drop down menu. Some of the apps have lesson plans and student work samples linked to them,...

Karen Sampson's insight:

We have 2 fairly new iPad carts and we are implementing 1:1 iPad Airs in our Middle School during the next school year so I am looking for quality apps for the teachers and students to preview and evaluate before investing our funds in unknown or untried apps. Feedback from other teachers and/or students who use these apps regularly and suggestions on how to use these apps effectively is invaluable. I love the app for PreK and Kindergarten blogging! So cute!

Karen Sampson's insight:

Do your students have trouble determining whether a source is credible or not? at their reading/comprehension level? This site helps students determine is a book, magazine, or website is a reliable,credible site and whether the information provided is easily understood by them. It also has great resources for teachers or teaching note-taking, outlining, citation, etc and this is what is included in the free version!

Free TenMarks Summer Math Program

Avoid summer learning loss. The TenMarks Summer Math Program is personalized for every child and is free for families to use all summer!
Karen Sampson's insight:

This is an incredible site for encouraging students to work on their math skills over the summer and the best thing is that it is free! You can sign each student up either by grade level or by a diagnosis test results. The student previews a lesson video and then attempts a group of problems, If a student gets more than 2 incorrect it automatically reroutes then to an additional tutorial that shows and explains verbally each step of solving the problem, then the student is redirected to a new set of problems. It tracks and reports the students progress.

Edmodo vs.Blogging in the classroom.


Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
Karen Sampson's insight:

I like this site for our Middle School teachers. The teachers need advice and choices on how they will integrate the new 1:1 iPad Airs in their teaching and how students will share their thoughts and work. This site gives a thoughtful comparison between what features blogging and Edmodo offer.

Karen Sampson's insight:

Our Middle School Social Studies teacher participated in a trial of Discovery Educations new Social Studies Techbooks for grades 6 -8 and he loved them. Instead of spending the time searching different components of Discovery Ed Streaming, it is all put together for the teacher using the 5E's model for creating the lesson plans. Each area, Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, Evaluate, has several choices of materials, resources, and assessment for the teacher to choose from to create a lesson plan tailor to his students. It has differentiation built-in to the content material and assessments. Various technology tools are use throughout the unit and it aligns the lesson to not only social studies standards, but also language arts, technology, and other content areas when applicable (math, music, art, etc. He found these techbooks and their resources invaluable during his first year at a STEM school where the emphasis is inquiry-based learning.

The Plagiarism Checker

Karen Sampson's insight:

We found that plagiarism was an issue this year in the middle school. I am not sure if students are too tempted by the ease of cutting and pasting or they do not have a deep understanding of what plagiarism is and how to prevent it. I think this site would work for both teachers and students to check for plagiarism. Then teachers could address the specific type or types of plagiarism they are seeing in the students' work. Students could check their writing and make any necessary revision to any sections that are flagged as plagiarism.

Bloomin' Apps

Includes all the Bloomin' versions in one place!

Via Allyson Bartley
Karen Sampson's insight:

I really love how this site connects various apps to the different levels on the new Bloom's taxonomy. Giving a variety of apps, teachers may use one or more apps to provide as a new differentiation strategy and ensure that he/she is using all the levels of Bloom's and not just a few of the lower levels..
