Tutorial: How to use iMovie on the iPad | jeadigitalmedia.org | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

Editing video on the go with the iPad and iMovie is pretty simple. Below I’ve grabbed three different free tutorials from Youtube that show you how to use the app. While the tutorials can give you a good of how to use the app, they are free so there are some limitations. If you are looking for really good, thorough tutorials on everything from iMovie to WordPress, I’d recommend subscribing to Lynda.com. These are a good starting point for you though if you’ve never seen iMovie on the iPad.

7 Things You Should Know About iPad Apps for Learning

7 Things You Should Know About iPad Apps for Learning | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

A thorough and informative article from the folks at Educause and their rightly famous 7 Things series. -JL

 

"The iPad combines robust computational functionality with a screen large enough to serve as a legitimate replacement for printed textbooks and other course materials. Where the iPad applications have led, other tablets and their attendant applications can be expected to follow, creating a more competitive and diverse market for tools of this type. Applications that live in the spaces where education and entertainment overlap can capture the imagination, enticing students to learn on their own."

Grading with Voice on an iPad

Grading with Voice on an iPad | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

One of the frustrating things I found in teaching online last semester was the lack of direct contact with students. The class felt impersonal, despite my efforts to give it life.

I found that especially frustrating when I graded assignments. The feedback seemed cold and distant, even as I as I tried to point out strong areas of writing and multimedia projects.

iPad Creative - iPad Creative - iPad Challenge: Shoot, edit and score a film using just your iPad

iPad Creative - iPad Creative - iPad Challenge: Shoot, edit and score a film using just your iPad | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
Nothing will hone your iPad skills quite like rising to a creative challenge. I wanted to get a better understanding of GarageBand's new Smart Strings section, plus I still felt that there was more to explore with the new iPad's camera.
With the in mind, I decided to shoot, edit and score a short film about a pleasant subtropical garden that's not too far from me. Abbotsbury Gardens is lovely this time of year, I knew that there would be lots of colour on show and that all the extra pixels of the new iPad, both in the display and the camera, would help me get those macro flower shots just right.

Promoting Student Engagement by Integrating New Technology into Tertiary Education: The Role of the iPad | Manuguerra | Asian Social Science

Promoting Student Engagement by Integrating New Technology into Tertiary Education: The Role of the iPad | Manuguerra | Asian Social Science | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
Abstract
Teachers in tertiary education need new strategies to communicate with students of the net generation and to shape enticing educational experiences for them. The use of new approaches such as video-recorded lectures to communicate directly and individually with all students has been the preserve of technology-savvy educators. However, a recent technological advance – the Apple iPad – has the potential to change this situation, offering access to effective and efficient pedagogy in an easy and intuitive way. This paper is a report on the use of the iPad in teaching activities over the past 15 months, showing how it can be used to enhance engagement with learning for tertiary students, both those studying live on campus and those studying at a distance.
