Bookry: Quiz Builder widget | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

If you like iBA's review widget but want real-time interaction and data reporting, then this is the perfect widget for you. Our Quiz widget is easy to use and fully customizable. You can choose your own layout and upload your own background and images. You can also change the font face/style and color to suit the style of your book.

Reader Cloud Rooms lets you connect and interact with other readers of the same widgets - locally or remotely - in real-time. For example, from within a book widget teachers can create a Room for a particular lesson and invite students to join that Room (physically or virtually). Once participating in the same Room teachers can see which students are in the Room, see their quiz responses and control progression through the Quiz with mirroring. Watch our YouTube video to learn more about Rooms.

How to breath life and increased performance back into an iPad that has become slow and sluggish | Ipads Advisor

How to breath life and increased performance back into an iPad that has become slow and sluggish | Ipads Advisor | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
So, you have actually obtained an iPad and it’s beginning to get a little sluggish on you. Quit me if this sound familiar- first, you do your ideal to maximize as significantly storage space as you can collect by erasing old, unused apps. Next off, you determine to unload your photo collection and information to iCloud, or whatever other preferred cloud service you choose. Still not enough? While these are really user-friendly, and also helpful actions, there are still a couple of added approaches available to you to bring your iPad back to life and make it seem like it’s a newer device once more. In no particular order …

DIY Lake Science - Simulations and Activities for Learning About Lakes - iPad Apps for School | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
DIY Lake Science is a relatively new iPad app from the Lawrence Hall of Science. The free iPad app is designed to help students learn about lake ecosystems. In the app students will find a small simulation of a lake ecosystem. Students can change the depth of the lake, the temperature, and the general climate around the lake to learn how those changes alter the ecosystem. After using the simulation students can learn more about lake ecosystems in the DIY Lake Science video library.

Scotland study: Tablet devices in schools beneficial to children

Scotland study: Tablet devices in schools beneficial to children | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

The research focused on four central themes in order to evaluate the overall effectiveness of these devices in assisting with learning, and was carried out by researchers from the Technology Enhanced Learning Research group at the Faculty of Education at the University.

1. Impact of tablet devices on teaching and learning generally The study found that benefits included greater motivation, engagement, parental involvement and understanding of complex ideas.

2. Leader and management issues (stemming from a deployment of devices) The study found that teachers are ‘equally engaged’ by the use of such a device, which has a low learning curve enabling them to use it immediately as a teaching tool and a learning tool for themselves.

3. Professional development of teachers and how teachers cope with using new technology The research found that ‘use of the device is contributing to significant changes in the way teachers approach their professional role as educators and is changing the way they see themselves and their pedagogy’.

4. Parental engagement The study showed that parents become more engaged with the school and their child’s learning when the iPad travels home with the student.

In surprising news today, Launchpad Toys announced that they had been acquired by Google. Ordinarily, this may not be of much interest to educators, but as of today, Toontastic and TeleStory are completely free for iOS devices and that includes all the in-app purchases that were previously a paid upgrade! Both apps are great storytelling apps for any classroom that uses iPads. Both apps are current favorites with educators, but their newly free features are about to earn them a whole lot of additional fans.

Why & How to Green Screen in class - IPAD 4 SCHOOLS | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

"Finding interesting ways to evaluate, reflect and report on work and projects can be tricky. Many students struggle to engage with the reflection properly as it is often a dry, unentertaining end to any unit or project. But that’s where the Green Screen App can help. (How-to help sheet below)

 

Remember:


People don’t learn from experience.
People learn when reflecting on experience.
People learn more when they can witness their own reflection."

The iPad is a mature device now. It’s not on a one or two-year upgrade cycle and I’d be willing to bet my relatively meager salary that the enormously well-remunerated Cook isn’t even remotely worried.

The iPhone is still an incredible engine for growth within Apple. The iPad is still the tablet that defines how we think about all other tablets. The future of the Apple Watch is far from clear, but it appears to be fitting the company’s well-established playbook for first generation products.
