The Top 17 Free Digital Storytelling Apps for The iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The Top 17 Free Digital Storytelling Apps for The iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Creative Classroom | Scoop.it

"One of the things I like the most about iPad is its ability to support all the major e-reader platforms. Its interactivity and audio capabilities have even added a new dimension to read alouds and bedtime stories, making it an ideal device for digital storytelling. And since Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has already featured a List of The Best Digital Storytelling Tools ( web and desktop version ) then we deem it equally important to provide another list of such tools but this time for the iPad.

Below is a list of some of the best free digital storytelling tools available for the iPad."

The following is a highlight of a competitive analysis the author did earlier this year when he was involved in designing software that would allow remote research teams to work together. While software is still a long way from replacing all in-person collaboration it’s becoming easier for remote or mobile workers to stay productive and communicative with their team. Certainly the tools we have available today are a vast improvement over what he used when Ihefirst tried telecommuting 12 years ago!

"In preparation for ECET2 I designed a ten question survey (Teacher Talk) to guide my thinking before and during the conference. Out of 67 respondents from all over the country, over 80% are currently teaching and most of those are at the secondary level. Three questions intersect well with my growth and reflection during and after the conference and were focused as follows: 1. teacher technology use 2. teacher inquiry 3. elevating and celebrating teachers."

perspective about iPad and early childhood, IMHO need to find the balance, iPad should not be the only device, or even a dominant device our children have.

 

so many things to be discovered out there.
