Andy Kenworthy's insight:

I've been looking forward to this update and like the look and new features but would definitely back up first I just in case. In fact all my devices back up to iCloud so it's done automatically and then I regularly back up to iTunes on my Mac mini.

Guide: Using Apple TV in the Classroom - THAT #EDTECH GUY'S BLOG

Guide: Using Apple TV in the Classroom - THAT #EDTECH GUY'S BLOG | E-learning | Scoop.it
Firstly, despite its name, Apple TV is not a television. Instead it is a device which allows you to wirelessly stream content from your iOS devices or Mac on your TV or projector using AirPlay. AirPlay is Apple’s technology that will stream whatever is on an iOS or Macs screen and is built into all iPads with the exception the first generation iPad, and all newer iPhones and iPod touches. This means you or your students can easily display Keynote presentations, images, videos or content within apps on a large screen at the touch of a button.

The Best Teacher Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The Best Teacher Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | E-learning | Scoop.it
Creating tutorials and explanatory guides is best done through the help of screenshots. These are pictures we take of our screens to share with others or include in a visual demonstration of how, for example, a process works. As teachers and educators we often find ourselves in need of such visual annotations and cues to enhance our students comprehensibility. There are several web tools that we can use to create screenshots and we have already reviewed some of them in past publications here. Today, we are introducing you to what we consider to be the best 4 web tools for creating screenshots. Besides being free, these tools are very simple to use and are also student friendly. They will allow you to  capture your screen, crop and annotate your pictures using  arrows, colours, shapes, text and many more.

APP ED REVIEW Roundup for January – Collaborative Learning Apps

APP ED REVIEW Roundup for January – Collaborative Learning Apps | E-learning | Scoop.it
Technology is changing not only the instructional methods we use to teach our students, but it is changing the classroom and learning experience. Digital learning communities – virtual spaces where students can collaborate, assist in each other’s learning, and build relationships – are integral to 21st century learning. With it being January and a time for New Year’s Resolution, we thought these apps might be something to try out in the new year! To support teachers, this month’s Roundup is a compilation of App Ed Review’s favorite learning communities apps that support students asking and answering questions, collaborating on work in real time, and creating their own lessons.

Using iMovie App in Physical Education Lessons - November 2014

Using iMovie App in Physical Education Lessons - November 2014 | E-learning | Scoop.it

This month I have been supporting the PE department with using the iPads to enhance their lessons and pupils to analyse skills. Last year Apple updated iMovie app to include features such as Split Screen, Freeze Frame, Video Speed etc. This year the update has made some of these features a little easier to find.

 

Split Screen: We have used this to compare videos of the same skill taken from two different angles. For example, a cricket bowling action.

 

Video Speed: We have used this by splitting part of a clip where the skill is most demonstrated and slowing it down.

 

Freeze Frame: We can stop a clip at any point and create a freeze frame. This freeze frame can be split at either end to create a separate clip and textual analysis added.

 

I would also like to say a big thank you for all the great feedback to the iPad Teachers App. We are only at the start of the content we can add to this so look out for the first update in mid December with even more ideas. Details of the app can be found at www.ipadteachers.co.uk

REVIEW: ViewChat: An Awesome iPad Collaboration Tool - Free Technology for Teachers:

REVIEW: ViewChat: An Awesome iPad Collaboration Tool - Free Technology for Teachers: | E-learning | Scoop.it
In this creative process, one of the greatest challenges that we encountered was not being able to have multiple screens open to easily go back and forth between web pages, media and other files. When collaborating, we used a variety of methods from Google Docs to annotation apps with shared folders, but could never really find anything spectacular that would redefine the creative process experience for us. I craved a tool that would allow us to go back and forth as well as allow one of us to write ideas and have others be able to see and interact with those ideas. A tool that would allow me to connect with my group, share my thoughts, gather feedback when the idea struck, and not just what I thought of during the 45 minute period. A few days ago my wish became a reality with the release of ViewChat.

Schools' walled garden approach to content means pupils don’t learn necessary skills - Daily Genius | E-learning | Scoop.it
It still happens, and it still surprises. Schools creating walled environments for their pupils to do their online learning in a ‘safe’ environment. A controlled space where nothing unapproved can intrude. In many ways it makes sense, and gives the institution charged with the child’s welfare, a measure of control. The problem is that where there’s a slightest chance, someone will dive through a loophole to escape those controls. Content and information, like water, will always break through.
