Teach Your Monster to Read On Your iPad - iPad Apps for School

Teach Your Monster to Read On Your iPad - iPad Apps for School | Education | Scoop.it
Teach Your Monster to Read is a fun game designed to help students improve the speed and accuracy with which they recognize letters, sounds, and words. Teach Your Monster to Read originally launched as a free web service (it is still available online). Recently, I learned from David Kapuler that Teach Your Monster to Read is now available as an iPad app too.

"n less than a decade, mobile technology has spread to the furthest corners of the planet. Of the estimated 7 billion people on Earth, 6 billion now have access to a working mobile phone. Africa, which had a mobile penetration rate of just 5% in the 1990s, is now the second largest and fastest growing mobile phone market in the world, with a penetration rate of over 60% and climbing."

iPad Responsible Use - IPAD 4 SCHOOLS

iPad Responsible Use - IPAD 4 SCHOOLS | Education | Scoop.it

"My school had a list of responsibilities in regards to using iPads in school.  So I set about producing a visual version and recently tweeted it to a Tweep friend. The Tweet was popular and got a number of RTs. So I’ve re-titled the slides for general use and here’s the full PDF version you might want to use in your school."

Useful as an example of what might be included in any iPad expectation/responsibility documentation.

Interesting idea - this could be useful in EFL teaching or just for people who are reading in English as a second language and need a bit of help.

 

I tried it on the Adobe Connect website to see if it would demystify some of the 'Marketese' though, and it didn't help much! A sentence such as 'Powering mission-critical web conferencing solutions, end-to-end, on virtually any device' is full of everyday words which are being used in an unnecessarily obscure way. Which is why I'm in favour of simply writing in plain English (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plain_english).

 

On that subject, I recently discovered the absolutely wonderful Simple English Wikipedia (http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page), which does just that.

This website is made for children that have a hard time understanding a word or sentence in the English language. By breaking down a word or difficult sentence into word that the child will be able to know.

This looks terrific.  Especially good from high quality institutions like MIT for science and technology videos.

GettingSmart, complies a list of top 25 Youtube Channels that bring the learning expereince. This idea can be atributed to the present debate of making avaliable a large portion of credible secondary and teritary qualifications online. This is admittedly a fun yet fundamental method which students can use to consume similar insight on particular topics outside the formal learning environment.
