How to move your iPhone and iPad backups to an external drive -iMore

How to move your iPhone and iPad backups to an external drive -iMore | EdTech Footenotes | Scoop.it

"If you sync your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch on your Mac, you know that the first thing iTunes does is back it up (unless you've told it not to). Depending on the size of your device and how much data you have stored on it, this can gobble up dozens of gigabytes of space. Did you know you can move those backups to an external hard drive? You can, and we can walk you through how. "

If you are planning to incorporate the use of iPads for learning in your classroom then you definitely need to develop classroom protocols. Here are some posters that highlight guidelines for the use of iPads in the classroom. Ensuring students are explicitly aware of their responsibilities will make it more likely for them to experience the  full educational potential of this versatile learning tool.

Judih Weinstein Haggai's curator insight, August 15, 12:17 AM

IPads are wonderful and they have to be kept that way. Cool rules

André Manssen's curator insight, August 15, 9:54 AM

Gebruik je iPads in jouw klas? Dan zijn deze posters wellicht handig om te gebruiken. Je moet ze natuurlijk wel eerst even vertalen in het Nederlands.

Resources for Using iPads in Grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 by Monica Burns - Edutopia

Resources for Using iPads in Grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 by Monica Burns - Edutopia | EdTech Footenotes | Scoop.it

Edutopia is one of my favourite web sites. It has recently run a series written by Monica Burns aka @ClassTechTips featuring Resources for Using iPads across multiple grade levels. Though I've featured them each individually here on iPads in Education I thought it might be useful to post all of the series in one collection.

Blooms, SAMR & the 3 C's - iSupport

Blooms, SAMR & the 3 C's - iSupport | EdTech Footenotes | Scoop.it

"As I prepared for an upcoming presentation at a local University I unloaded my test iPad of all its applications and created a new iPad, complete only with apps which I use at school every week. This iPad would become my “essentials” iPad, strategically and efficiently full of apps I wholly recommend to every educator I meet.

 

I went through the apps and I developed a list, indicating the apps purpose. I found that these purposes consistently fell into 3 categories: Consumption, Creation and Collaboration."
