What makes the iPad brilliant is that it caters to all different intelligences. In fact most apps touch upon all different types of intelligences.

Not only are you able to increase your own intelligence orientation you can also explore other methods of learning which will certainly increase your neural network..  For example, if you are a visual learner, you could combine this logical-mathematical.  Just think:  you could see numbers and learn to add up and multiply much faster.  You could also store your bank account numbers in the visual area of the brain...................................Just think of how you can increase your brain power!!

Have a look at www.hotmoodle.com for different examples of learning.

10 Ways to Use Haiku Deck In Education | Krissy Venosdale {Venspired} | Digital Learning | Scoop.it

"Looking for a GREAT presentation app for your iPad? Check out Haiku Deck. It’s a great way to create a quick presentation using the IPad!  I’m already loving how easy it is to use.  I love that you can import a pic or snap one right around you, and add it right to your slides.  It speaks to the visual learner inside me.

 

Here are a few ideas of using Haiku Deck in education…"

Digital Literacy is Good, but Fluency is Better

Digital Literacy is Good, but Fluency is Better | Digital Learning | Scoop.it
If you want to understand digital fluency, consider what it takes to be fluent in a language.

So what's the difference between digital literacy and digital fluency? According to Briggs and Makice, literacy means you know what tools to use and how to use them, while fluency means you also know when and why to use them.

Wideo, an animated video creation tool that I've reviewed a couple of times, recently published avideo highlighting seven ideas for using their service in classrooms.

TouchCast: An Exciting New iPad Tool to Create Wildly Interactive Videos | Wired Educator

TouchCast: An Exciting New iPad Tool to Create Wildly Interactive Videos | Wired Educator | Digital Learning | Scoop.it

"TouchCast is an exciting new tool that combines video and the web in amazingly new interactive ways that I have never before seen. I believe TouchCast could be an exciting new for educators and students.

 

The ability to move and interact with the content on the screen during the video reminds me of the user interface used in the movie Minority Report. Very creative ability to both create and interact with various content. You can just tell when an app fully uses the capabilities of the iPad and TouchCast is one of those amazing apps that gets it right."

The 21st Century Principal: Adopting a Digital Disruptor Mindset to Transform Education

The 21st Century Principal: Adopting a Digital Disruptor Mindset to Transform Education | Digital Learning | Scoop.it
“When people adopt technology, they do old things in new ways. When people internalize technology, they find new things to do.” James McQuivey, Digital Disruption: Unleashing the Next Wave of Innovation

When it comes to engaging in innovation with technology, the mindset we take toward technology is extremely important. We can either take a "technology adopter" mindset or we can take a "digital disruptor" mindset. As James McQuivey states in his book, Digital Disruption: Unleashing the Next Wave of Innovation, "Digital disruptors think about opportunity differently." To the technology adopter it's always about the technology. How can I use the technology to help me do the things I currently do better? In contrast, a person with a "digital disruptor" mindset sees the technology as the means to engage in entirely new and different possibilities. Which leads me to ask the question:  Which mindset  predominately drives technology policy in your school or district? Is it a "technology adopter" mindset  or a "Digital Disruptor" mindset?
