iPads in Mathematics

iPads in Mathematics | EDUcational Chatter | Scoop.it

Thanks to #edchat I came across a tweet that provided a link to "The iPad and Maths" posting.  In reviewing the post I learned a several new apps that one can integrate into math as well as other curriculum areas.  Some of those new apps include Home Design HD, MotionX GPS, Theodolite, and others.  The post goes on to briefly explain each of these apps as well as providing links to all the recommended apps. 

 

Therefore, I encourage everyone to visit the entire post at http://goo.gl/ZEYwt and let me know what new apps have caught your attention.

A List of Top Educational Infographics ( Slideshow )

A List of Top Educational Infographics ( Slideshow ) | EDUcational Chatter | Scoop.it

I am one that finds infographics quite interesting. The research information shared along with graphical images can provide a big impact in the classroom.  After all, out of all our senses, 83% of what we learn is visual.  Thus, I ask, why are educators not taking advantage of resources and projects like infographics in the classroom?  After all, do you not have to research the topic and find supporting facts?  Of course you do.  So, why not allow the students to research, think critically, and create a piece of art in the form of an infographic to illustrate and define their work

 

I encourage everyone to visit this educational technology blog and browse through the Google presentation providing a wealth of infographics touching on multiple facets of education.  Enjoy!
