Stick Around is Free December 15th & 16th! - Learning in Hand

Stick Around is Free December 15th & 16th! - Learning in Hand | Edu Technology | Scoop.it
My iPad app, Stick Around is free for two days only! The app’s regular price is $2.99 (or $1.49 through Apple’s Volume Purchase Program).
DOWNLOAD STICK AROUND FROM THE APP STORE
Stick Around empowers teachers, students, and parents to design, play, and share labeling, sorting, and matching games. It has been used in hundreds of classrooms and is often mentioned by students as their favorite educational app. 

Stick Around has been in the App Store for exactly a year. Before that, it took a team of people almost two years to design, code, and test. In fact, I started working with the geniuses at MorrisCooke, the app design studio that makes Explain Everything, in May 2011. You can read the story behind Stick Around.

REVIEW: Auxy Is The Best Piano Roll Editor for iPad Yet - And Not Much Else - By Design - Create Digital Music

REVIEW: Auxy Is The Best Piano Roll Editor for iPad Yet - And Not Much Else - By Design - Create Digital Music | Edu Technology | Scoop.it

"It’s been asked over and over again: can a simpler software tool attract more people to music making? But the next question is, invariably – what’s the right stuff to leave out?


Auxy, released today, is an extreme exercise in app minimalism. It radically reduces what’s in the UI by focusing on making and cueing patterns — and leaving out the rest.


It’s also free."

Using Book Creator to author mathematics - Book Creator app | Blog

Using Book Creator to author mathematics - Book Creator app | Blog | Edu Technology | Scoop.it
My students have noticed that I often say “You’ll never see that in a math book”.

Some of the topics we explore take a twist and some of the methods I use to teach are a little unorthodox (but they help). Students affectionately call this a “Yencafied” lesson strategy, and often add a hashtag (#yencafy) in their notes!

Come the end of this school year, I mentioned to my classes that I’d been thinking about this “never-see-that-in-a-math-book” theme, and I decided perhaps some of these strategies should show up in math books… and that these books should be authored by them. They loved the idea!

Newspaper Reports with Comic Life- October 2014 Post

Newspaper Reports with Comic Life- October 2014 Post | Edu Technology | Scoop.it

Last month a teacher asked me on Twitter about using the iPad to aid the teaching of Newspaper reports with Year 6. The following week a teacher at my school asked me the same question. The following day a new Comic Life app https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/comic-life-3/id891378056?mt=8&uo=4&at=11lIT4 was released with a Newspaper template. So these past few lessons I have been working with pupils to create a School Newspaper. What I particularly like about using the iPad for this task is pupils can take the photos and quickly add them into the template, meaning they can relate to the subject matter more. A nice touch in the app is the correct date is automatically added so we have been able to work on the reports over a few days without having to keep changing the date.

The iPad's Killer App - Ben Rimes @techsavvyed  #K12Online14 | Edu Technology | Scoop.it
For the hundreds of thousands of apps on the iPad, there is one often neglected app that already comes pre-installed; the Camera App! Exploration of the world around us using video and images allows students to capture elements of curiosity and real world examples of concepts for assessment, demonstration of knowledge, and creating engaging learning opportunities. This screencast/video will give educators ideas to challenge their students to capture the world around them and move past gamification, towards more playful learning experiences that rely more on intrinsic motivation, rather than extrinsic devices, badges, and stimuli.
