Time Lapse iPad Workflow - July 2015

Time Lapse iPad Workflow - July 2015 | Edu Technology | Scoop.it

I have blogged about using time-lapse before and it appears in our iPad Teacher Guide App (www.ipadteachers.com), notably to capture shadows moving across a playground. We use the time-lapse feature in I Can Animate a lot and even more recently where I have supported a number of schools who are capturing mini-beasts and even chicks hatching. The good thing about it is that it can be used with all year groups across a range of subjects but predominantly in Science.

 

The image above shows a typical workflow that we use combining I Can Animate, iMovie and Book Creator with Showbie used as the resource and assessment tool. The rule that we follow is that if the process takes less than a day (e.g Shadows across the playground, dough rising etc) then we use time-lapse. If it is longer than a day (e.g seeds growing) then we take the photos in I Can Animate manually because we want to use the iPads inbetween time.

Apps in Action: Skitch Lesson Ideas - THAT #EDTECH GUY'S BLOG

Apps in Action: Skitch Lesson Ideas - THAT #EDTECH GUY'S BLOG | Edu Technology | Scoop.it
Skitch is a fantastic tool for annotating images. It enables the user to precisely point to features of interest and add text. There are many ways this could be used. One instance is like the image above where I have added key questions to an image. This provides more focus than merely presenting a blank image and prompts discussion. Following on from this, I have given learners the blank background image and asked them to annotate theirs by answering the questions. Alternatively, a teacher could present a blank image and ask students to identify the key features and annotate it live, based on students feedback. Although this could have traditionally been done by projecting an image and annotating it using a whiteboard marker, the great thing about Skitch is that all of that great feedback is not lost: it’s stored in a clear way which can then be distributed to students as a point of reference.

In the 1:1 Chromebook classroom, we don't use Apps, but rather Chrome extensions. I was looking for a way for students to annotate images, and this app led me back to Evernote Web Clipper. We'll be evaluating this and other extensions with similar function for the next school year.

iMusical - Filming the School Musical Using the iPad

iMusical - Filming the School Musical Using the iPad | Edu Technology | Scoop.it

Every year Key Stage 2 pupils and teachers work their socks off to perform a musical. This year’s was called All the fun of the Pharoah! Unfortunately, during the Christmas holidays the Sony HD Video camera went missing from staff room, presumed stolen. I purchased the new iPad last month and thought I would test out its video recording capabilities. I mounted the iPad on a K&m iPad mic stand (see image below) and filmed the wide shots from the balcony on the first night and close ups on an iPhone 4 from the band pit on the second. Then using iMovie on the MacBook Pro, patched them together to create a nice film. I must say, I was very impressed with the iPads video skills and particularly the quality of the microphone.

Awesome Pool Noodle Engineering Wall for Kids - Left Brain Craft Brain

Awesome Pool Noodle Engineering Wall for Kids - Left Brain Craft Brain | Edu Technology | Scoop.it
I’ve been wanting to build my daughter an engineering wall for a long time.  A place for her to learn and play about some of the basics of engineering like pulleys and lights and pumps.  She loves designing and building, but all of the walls I had seen seemed either too complicated to build or not sturdy enough to be worth the time.  Then we went swimming and I had a burst of inspiration.  Pool noodles!  Light enough to hang on a wall, and sturdy enough to last a while.  And enter in my favorite wall hanging supply, Command™ products to get the job done.  Here’s how we made an Awesome Pool Noodle Engineering Wall for Kids.

App #58: Green Screen by Doink  - Teaching with iPad @sly111 | Edu Technology | Scoop.it
Here is a very easy to use app called Green Screen by Doink. The process of green screening is to have the ability to change the backgrounds of your videos. Combine images and/or video to create one single video. I have been doing it for a few years now. Before the iPad, doing green screen effects were quite challenging and required expensive software on PCs. Now, using this app ($2.99 USD, iTunes link), you and your students will easily create fun, informative and educational videos for parents and classmates alike. By reading ahead, you will have a chance at winning a free promo code for this great app.

From Book Creator to printed book - Book Creator app | Blog | Edu Technology | Scoop.it
I have been making printed versions of books made with Book Creator on an iPad for many years. The app produces a really decent file for hard copy printing.

First thing to realise is that your video and sound files won’t work on paper. I know that sounds silly but people sometimes get upset when they first realise this. What you do get is a paper book which looks like it was purchased from a bookstore – it looks so professional.

Free Technology for Teachers: iRead a Book ... Now What? - Book Posters, Book Trailers, and More

Free Technology for Teachers: iRead a Book ... Now What? - Book Posters, Book Trailers, and More | Edu Technology | Scoop.it

"My social media bios declare “I like kids. I like books. I like tech. What else could I be but a school librarian?” That pretty much sums it up right there. 

Now, I do want to make one thing clear. I do not believe every book needs a “project.” READ MORE BOOKS. That’s what will encourage a love of reading (and the literacy skills will come). That said there are times when added tech IS fun and helpful to instruction. We had 6 iPads last year but this December were lucky enough to get a cart of 25! Of course we wanted to use them."
