Instashare -An iOS/Mac app for instant transfer of files

Instashare -An iOS/Mac app for instant transfer of files | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

Despite these criticisms, I really like the app. If the next update brings in multi-file transfer, I’ll find myself using it a lot because of the drag and drop interface and the direct iOS to iOS option. The Bluetooth transfer can bypass issues on days when the school WiFi is in meltdown as well. Until it allows PC access and the ability to browse folders, though, I’ll be sticking with my very reliable and useful FileBrowser app. But with improvements to come in future updates, Instashare will become a serious rival to FileBrowser and other network apps.

Zach Branham's curator insight, October 11, 2013 8:33 PM

Technology like this allows any person wanting to spread their music or sound on a global level without needing a giant label to do so. Apps such as Soundcloud reaches the far reaches and crevasses of the world to create a community of people sharing music. This is allowing people to not always use a professional studio and label, but allowing them to produce themselves.

 

Here are some pros: The average artist will be able to record and share their music with the world without spending a large sum of money to record professionally and get a label to push the album into the world. This also helps to put out artists that some people refer to as "The Greatest Unknown Artist", It helps everybody get themselves out there and reach for the stars.

 

Cons: People will migrate to these cheaper faucets of mass media hysteria in order to save money, they will start doing everything themselves. In turn this creates a financial strain on recording studios and producers who will have a decreased workload. Industry jobs will start becoming fewer, smaller studios who don't have V.I.P bands record will start closing because of lack of funding. It ultimately eliminates more industry jobs.

How to get an App Store refund for kids' accidental in-app purchases

How to get an App Store refund for kids' accidental in-app purchases | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

In-app purchases have become a thorny issue for customers in Apple’s ecosystem. Earlier this year, Cupertino settled with the US Federal Trade Commission over incidents where minors made in-app purchases – in some cases exorbitant ones – without the knowledge of their parents.

 

But if you (or someone you know) has been bitten by one of these inadvertent purchases, how can you go about recouping your money? If visions of paperwork and annoying forms are swimming before your eyes, don’t sweat it: Apple’s made it pretty easy to put in your request without even leaving your computer.

61 Educational Apps For The 21st Century Student

61 Educational Apps For The 21st Century Student | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

It’s not entirely clear what it means to be a “21st century student.”

And in 2013, it’s also not entirely clear what the definition of an “educational app” might be.

Just as students are no longer tethered to textbooks (in most formal education settings), apps that are strictly didactic–designed to promote academic proficiency and foundational fluency–are often the first that parents and teachers reach for when looking for something “constructive.” But the reality is, the 21st century is as much about finding, evaluating, managing, sharing, and curating information as it is reading texts, answering questions, and applying memorized formulas to neatly scaffolded problems.

7 Great iPad Apps to Promote Visual Thinking ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

7 Great iPad Apps to Promote Visual Thinking ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

"Today while I was looking for a citation from " Making Thinking Visible: How to Promote Engagement, Understanding, and Independence for All Learners " , it dawned on me to compile a list of the  popular iPad apps that promote visual thinking. Making Thinking Visible is by all means a must read for those of you interested in knowing how thinking can be made visible at any grade level and across all subject areas through the use of effective questioning, listening, documentation, and facilitative structures called thinking routines. Another book I have in my shelf and which is more or less similar to the one cited above is " Blah Blah Blah: What To Do When Words Don't Work " in which Dan walks his readers through the different practices of making thinking vivid with less words.

Based on these reads and to the best of my knowledge, the apps I selected for you today will defnitely help you, your kids and students think visually and visibly. Enjoy"
