14 Ways To Store And Share Files On The iPad | educational technology for teachers

14 Ways To Store And Share Files On The iPad | educational technology for teachers | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

iPads are neat little devices that can pretty much do it all: play music, support interactive content, reshape how we think of textbooks, produce high-quality videos, and even take a step back and function as a good old-fashioned typewriter.


Via Dr. Laura Sheneman
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I have a first edition iPad.  It took me awhile to realize that the only way I could get a file onto the iPad was to get the original file into the cloud from another computer. I wish I had read this article when I first got my machine!

A Must Have App Evaluation Rubric for Teachers

A Must Have App Evaluation Rubric for Teachers | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
How about after you find the apps, do you know how to evaluate their pedagogic implications ? Are they educationally valid ? Do they target skills you want your students to work on ? Are they flexible enough to let students learn in different settings ? Are they student friendly ?

Interesting application, but the content has the same trouble that many of the rubric available on the web: It says nothing:
Ove Christensen's comment, December 9, 2012 3:38 AM
Well I think you should see it as a help for reflection on apps and use of apps. No tools are doing the hard work for you but they help you to remember what to cover.
Jim Lerman's comment, December 9, 2012 2:44 PM
@Cristian...I don't see it the same way. The criteria, in my opinion, do provide a useful framework for judging the efficacy of a web app. The value in the criteria is implicit; if one shares the values inherently stated in the criteria (for example, "authentic practice of targeted skills"), then I think the criteria are indeed helpful. If the values and meaning of the criteria do no speak to you, the reader, then I can see where one could feel they do not say anything. As Ove says, "no tools are doing the hard work for you."

How To Capture Ideas at Presentations and Events by Doing Visual Recording on the iPad

Robin Good: Rachel Smith explains in very simple words how you can use your iPad to capture and record visually the key ideas and concepts presented during a lecture, keynote, training class or presentation.

She provides a good round-up of four relevant tools that can be used for this task, analyzing their key pros and cons as well as providing logistic and technical advice on how to best organize and setup yourself for doing visual recording on the iPad.

As similar tools will provide more ready-made icons, templates and patterns available for this kind of real-time idea-capturing, this rare and pioneering visual recording work will begin to catch up even more rapidly.

 

Very useful. 8/10

Teaching With Tablets | Inside Higher Ed | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Stephanie Hedge is a graduate student in the Department of English at Ball State University. You can follow her on twitter at @slhedge.


I present this post with a two caveats: first, this post is written with iPads in mind (particularly as I discuss apps), because that’s what I use, but the basic principles hold for any tablet, including the neat-o Microsoft Surface. Secondly, I recognize that tablets can be prohibitively expensive for graduate students. However, new advances in tech are bringing down prices, and some schools may provide a tech budget for students. Check what kinds of devices are available to you! Although the cost can be high, I find the flexibility and utility of an iPad to be well worth the investment.

ClassDojo: A Unique, Techy Tool for Teachers

ClassDojo: A Unique, Techy Tool for Teachers | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
For school teachers looking to keep the little monsters under control, ClassDojo is an engaging and innovative web app. It uses cute monsters and pop-up notices to instantly reward good behavior and admonish naughtiness.


Sounds like a strong behavior management tool.  I found that rewarding the class for good behavior was much more effective than punishing for bad behavior.  If I were in the face to face classroom (where I spent 25 very memorable years) I'd be working with this app!

5 Critical Mistakes Schools Make With iPads (And How To Correct Them)

5 Critical Mistakes Schools Make With iPads (And How To Correct Them) | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Over the last few years K-12 schools and districts across the country have been investing heavily in iPads for classroom use. EdTechTeacher has been leading iPad professional development at many of these schools and we’ve seen firsthand how they approach iPad integration.


While we’ve witnessed many effective approaches to incorporating iPads successfully in the classroom, we’re struck by the common mistakes many schools are making with iPads, mistakes that are in some cases crippling the success of these initiatives. We’re sharing these common challenges with you, so your school doesn’t have to make them.

A Presentation App That Forces You To Tell Better Stories

A Presentation App That Forces You To Tell Better Stories | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
While you’re probably not guilty of mucking up complex geopolitical strategy with your bad slides, chances are you’ve made some crappy ones--or, at the very least, been subjected to some--at one point or another. So the appeal of Haiku Deck, a free app for the iPad, should be clear. As founder Adam Tratt explained to me: "We wanted to make it impossible to create ugly [slides]."

 

The app, as its name suggests, is all about brevity, enabling users to make clean, concise slide shows--or decks--with a heavily streamlined feature set. Using it is fiendishly simple: You enter a few keywords of text onto a slide, and the app searches a database of over 35 million Creative Commons images that suit your subject. If your text says "Fierce Dedication," you might get an artful shot of a tiger or a football team to use as the slide’s background (though you can always use a photo of your own). Finding that compelling image for you, Tratt says, is one of Haiku Deck’s key achievements. "People spend a ton of time doing this manually … so we thought we could really delight our users if we made the process just happen automagically, and then embed the Creative Commons attribution right in the deck."
