Maily launches an iPad email app for children aged four and up | Digucation - digital education for the 21st Century | Scoop.it
This free app aims for kids to share their digital scribbles. I have first hand experience watching my 2 year old neice navigate an iphone with more authority and knowledge then I have ever seen an adult do! We are social learners so this app reminds me of the first crayon for kids and pen pal program.

20 Must-See Facts About The 21st Century Classroom | Edudemic

20 Must-See Facts About The 21st Century Classroom | Edudemic | Digucation - digital education for the 21st Century | Scoop.it

The classroom of the future is on your doorstep. We’re getting slapped in the face with technology (sorry about that, partially my fault), flipped classroom models, and innovative ideas.

So what is the current state of the 21st century classroom? How many teachers have computers in their classroom? What are the 3 biggest reasons to use technology in your classroom? A new infographic from Open Colleges spells it out. We had the honor of helping them with this infographic so please spend at least half a second to check it out. Make me think that someone actually sees some of our hard work!

Deanya Lattimore Schempp's curator insight, May 14, 2013 7:44 AM

I think if departments reviewed their faculty, it would become clear to them which teachers should *not* be forced into using technology in the classroom.  Questionably, if those teachers cannot teach the assigned material any longer, they may be driven to learn it in order to keep their jobs, but honestly, if teachers don't possess these traits in today's world, the only thing they should probably be driven to is a different job....

25 Critical Thinking Apps For Extended Student Learning - @teachthought

25 Critical Thinking Apps For Extended Student Learning - @teachthought | Digucation - digital education for the 21st Century | Scoop.it
“ Critical thinking apps aren’t the sweet spot of mobile app design. Most of the more popular apps are focused on social media, productivity, or what always seem to be mindless games (we’re looking at you Kim Kardashian and Candy Crush). The fact that most apps don’t force users to think critical doesn’t mean that it isn’t possible, however. The lack of cognitively demanding apps is more of an indictment of the users than the technology itself. There are many apps that do promote critical thinking–and often extended critical thinking and learning at that. These aren’t clinical “critical thinking building” programs either, but rather often enjoyable exercises in strategy, tactics, and problem-solving thought. So below we’ve collected 25 of these critical thinking apps. Most are for grades 8-12, but several are for students as young as kindergarten. Helping students think critical is less a matter of direct instruction, and more a matter of providing them with access to dynamic tools with unique and playful barriers or goals that require the best strategy they can muster, while providing instant feedback to the player as they go. Though they’re not learning specific academic content in most of these apps, they are practicing extended thinking over a period of time that encourages to look at digital circumstances with a critical eye.”

Whether you’re the parent of a child with a reading disability or an educator that works with learning disabled students on a daily basis, you’re undoubtedly always looking for new tools to help these bright young kids meet their potential and work through their disability. While there are numerous technologies out there that can help, perhaps one of the richest is the iPad, which offers dozens of applications designed to meet the needs of learning disabled kids and beginning readers alike.

Here, we highlight just a few of the amazing apps out there that can help students with a reading disability improve their skills not only in reading, writing, and spelling, but also get a boost in confidence and learn to see school as a fun, engaging activity, not a struggle. | iPads in Education
Phill Cantone's insight:
If you are fortunate enough to be in a 1 to 1 iPad school, these apps could be beneficial not not to struggling readers and writers, but younger primary students wanting to extend themselves.
