Too Noisy - simple, but brilliant.

Is nice!

Tamsyn Smith's curator insight, June 4, 2013 4:57 AM

These are mainly free, although some are low-cost. I like the sound of Class Dojo as a behaviour management tool. The app to help reduce classroom noise also seems like a good idea.

Jane Sowter-Maranion's insight:

 Indeed, the iPad is a tool for creativity. Students can build digital projects, by using images, podcasts, videos and music to increase the appeal of their work.

I have also found that the iPad is fantastic when used as a rotational activity for practising skills during literacy and maths lessons; especially for kids who are struggling. Thus its a great tool to use when differentiation of curriculum is important.

I love my iPad. It is fantastic for creation content, curration, as a personal reader, for social networks, and more. What I find frustrating about it is multitasking which is clunky and to be honest for any serious writing tasks I have to do, I much prefer my Mac.

"The iPad takeover of public education isn’t just confined to the mainstream classroom: Special needs educators, too, are finding that  iPads can be a vital tool to support independence. What sets the iPad apart from other devices is the simple and visually robust user interface that can be used by almost everyone. It’s also a highly customizable device that can be set up with applications and assistive features to support a variety of special needs."

Homeschool FL's curator insight, June 2, 2013 8:33 PM

Educational apps are popping up daily, but the question for parents is, how to know which ones are worth using, and which ones are not? Because let's face it, the app industry is out to make money, and many times app developers are very astute at making an app that "looks" educational, but in reality is just full of ads and sneaky ways of getting your children to buy something.

 

This article lists 46 different websites that review apps for teachers and students. This should help cut through the clutter and help pinpoint the useful from the fluff.

With more and more schools launching, ‘Bring Your Own Technology’ or ‘Bringing Your Own Device’ (BYOT/BYOD) I created a symbaloo of all apps and web tools that work on all devices to help educators get started. Even though I am a firm believe, it doesn’t matter what site/app the students use to show mastery of a concept, some educators need a starting place and many have loved this symbaloo so I, of course, want to pass it along."

These apps are what the iPad is about for the classroom.  Students need apps that will allow them to create, thus moving them from being a consumer to being a creator.  Personally I like Popplet for mind mapping or inspiration.
