"I went home last week and did everything one normally does over the holidays: I got together with my family and, in the spirit of Christmas, grilled my teenage cousins about what apps they're using on their iPhones.
They named two of the usual suspects, Snapchat and Instagram. They laughed in my face when I asked what they thought about Facebook. "It's for moms," one explained to me.
Insightful, but not out of the ordinary. Then my 13-year-old cousin asked me if I knew what AirDrop was."
This is something that educators need to know about. I tried it at home with my phone and it is very very easy. Great tool if you are out with family and friends. I like that you can limit to people in your contacts list.
"Well, here it is my favorite and most popular post of the year, my Top 100 Sites/Apps of the year!!! Continuing w/ the trend from last year, readers are going to find more and more apps on the list and less sites, as the flux in mobile learning and BYOD (bring your own devices) continues to rise. Also, you'll notice that there are a lot of learning tools for Digital Storytelling & Math. I believe the reason for this is because storytelling is a learning tool that can be used by a wide range of educators for any subject, and Math is a very popular subject w/ lots of diverse ways to go about teaching it. W/ that I hope you enjoy this list and as always thanks again for reading!!!"
I am looking for new online tools to share with our teachers -- and this list looks like it has many that are easy to use -- and that enhance learning. Like Geddit -- where the students can give the teacher feedback on how well they understand -- sounds very cool.
"The interest in inquiry-based learning seems to ebb and flow based on–well, it’s not clear why it ever ebbs.
In short, it is a student-centered, Constructivist approach to learning that requires critical thinking, and benefits from technology, collaboration, resourcefulness, and other modern learning skills that never seem to fall out of favor themselves.
Regardless, St Oliver Plunkett Primary School has put together two very useful images that can help you populate your iPad–or classroom of iPads–with apps that support both inquiry-based learning (the second image below), and a more general approach to pedagogy based on Apple’s uber-popular tablet (the top image)."
