This will come in very useful for us in school.

Heidi Hutchison's curator insight, August 27, 2013 9:18 AM

Looks like a great resource. I liken getting kids to understand their digital footprint to getting them to understand the choices they make now, affects the direction their life will go later. Definitely a tough lesson to learn and teach! we need all the help we can get! :)

Great to add to what you already may do or it is a great beginning!

Educators on iPads - Let Them Play!!! - A Tech Teacher on a Mission

Educators on iPads - Let Them Play!!! - A Tech Teacher on a Mission | EdTech | Scoop.it

"In my opinion, there is nothing more empowering for a learner than hands-on experience. I could stand in front of a group of staff members all day and show them what they could do on an iPad, but none of it means anything to them unless they actually have the iPads in their hands. Moreover, I find that learning on devices is more authentic when the learner makes the discoveries themselves rather than through delivery of app knowledge. The part of these sessions that excites me the most hearing the little murmurs between engaged staff members, "Oh, this would work really well with [Student A]!" or "My low reading group could really benefit from this app!" or "This is a great extension for [subject area]." For teachers who are really stuck in the discovery process, I get them started with  apps like GeoBoard or FindSums that are user-friendly and immediately engaging and they usually move on on their own from there.
