iPad Apps and Other Resources to Teach Students about Mandela's Life ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

iPad Apps and Other Resources to Teach Students about Mandela's Life ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Communicating, Collaborating & Cooperating | Scoop.it

"One of the most iconic freedom fighter has just left us a couple of days ago leaving behind him a huge legacy for next generations to learn from. Nelson Mandella's life was a genuine fight for human rights and justice and it was thanks to his civil activism that apartheid was abolished in South Africa. The fight for freedom cost Nelson so dearly, 27 years of his life was spent in prison. The lessons we can draw from  Nelson's eventful life experiences are inestimable and here are some of the teaching resources I have curated fro you to help yu teach your students about this legendary man."

rwestby's curator insight, December 8, 2013 12:24 PM

February, African-American History Month, would be a great time to implement these resources for teaching students about this iconic human rights activist. 

andrew mulinge's curator insight, December 9, 2013 3:37 AM

This caught my attention because of the icon associated with the title --- Nelson Mandela. A few days ago, my cousin who is a special education teacher in Richmond, posted his frustrations on Facebook about how a student said "Who is Nelson Mandela and why the hell should we care"? My cousin found this quite disturbing but at the same time, he used it as a teaching moment for him and the student. 

 

At my middle school, every student has an ipad that they use daily. The usage of the ipad vary from warm-up activities to homework assignments. Students of this generation coincide more and more with technological innovations like the ipad. This particular app celebrating Nelson Mandela is another example of how learning can can be done through apps in exchange for books. Students love to play games and love to use their ipads. Incorporating critical information in the apps not only allow the student to learn a great deal but it's also fun. I would suggest that my cousin consider using different techniques through the internet to teach students like that about Madiba.

Programming is the new literacy -- and your kids need to master it.
Viv Hall's insight:

"Some forecasters are calling coding the new literacy because of what kids learn in the process. Coding helps kids develop essential skills such as problem solving and critical thinking. Plus, it encourages them to become creators, not just consumers, of the technology they use."

"A MaKey MaKey is a very simple to use piece of kit which can be used to add a little bit more fun to a class coding project. The MaKey Makey is a bare bones circuit board that connects to your computer via USB. There are7 terminals for attaching electrical wires to it. These are arranged like an old games controller – with up/down/left/right arrows and also spacebar and left click. A strip along the bottom allows for another wire to connect it to Earth."
