A Great Presentation On The Use of iPad for Digital Storytelling ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Great Presentation On The Use of iPad for Digital Storytelling ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Early years | Scoop.it

"The presentation below is created by Karen Bosh who is a K - 8 Technology Instructor. Karen provided some key ideas and app suggestions for teachers on how to use iPad for digital storytelling. Some of the apps she suggested are not free. She has also corroborated her ideas with a set of students  project examples involving the use of iPad for digital storytelling. The presentation is a little bit long ( contains 129 slides) but is really worth your time. Have a look and share with your colleagues."

7 Apps for Teaching Children Coding Skills - Edutopia

7 Apps for Teaching Children Coding Skills - Edutopia | Early years | Scoop.it

"It's hard to imagine a single career that doesn't have a need for someone who can code. Everything that "just works" has some type of code that makes it run. Coding (a.k.a. programming) is all around us. That's why all the cool kids are coding . . . or should be. Programming is not just the province of pale twenty-somethings in skinny jeans, hunched over three monitors, swigging Red Bull. Not any more! The newest pint-sized coders have just begun elementary school."

Weby.io have been true to their word and have launched their website as planned, and now it is up and running.

As the site (and the application) is in beta, it feels a bit raw. You cannot find the description of the app or its features and the video screencast is not of the highest quality.  Using the tool is not complicated, though I find some essential things lacking. The final product is a display of media content visually reminding me of many other boards.

Teacher's Visual Library of 40+ iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Early years | Scoop.it

 

"I love it when I come across such educators curated lists of apps because I know since these apps are reviewed by fellow teachers then there is a high possibility that they will work for other teachers in different settings too.

For instance, the wonderful work embedded below and which has been created by the folks in St.Plunkett Oliver Primary School http://www.stoliverplunkett.qld.edu.au/Pages/default.aspx ; is a great library of apps that every teacher should have the chance to explore. It contains a set of useful apps pertaining to different categories. Most, if not all of these apps, have been already reviewed here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning before but it is much more practical to see them  compiled and organized all in one page."
