Bonne application à condition de faire créer un compte aux élèves.

Ne reste alors qu'à susciter le débat contributif pour construire un confrontation entre différents points de vue.

Belle ergonomie mais appli limitée à 3 flips au delà il faudra payer...

Create quick videos with embedded questions, content and extension activities for the flipped classroom. Really easy to use - I wish it was integrated into SEQTA!

Jamtok is an app providing music and games for language learning. So far Spanish and Japanese are offered. (free)

Peter Rettig's curator insight, August 17, 2014 10:09 PM

We love the idea of jamtok as we also believe that songs are a great way to train your ear for a foreign language and memorize words, phrases, and sentences. We actually wrote several blogs on this and our "La Paloma" blog is one of our most read posts. This also reminds me that we should do a review of the app.

Though not an iPad app, it has been compared to the Subtext app on iOS. I wonder how the lack of kinetic interaction impacts literacy and comprehension when using a track pad or mouse.

This looks interesting...may push the boundaries of some school districts with regard to their smartphone policies.

On recommendation from Mrs. Akin, we have tried this app and love it! You can create custom quizzes and download class data, much like you can with a CPS system. Check it out and see how you like it! There are quizzes already created by other teachers that you can try or you can create your own.

Google Apps, I believe are leading the way to student productivity. As teachers, we may see this as another hurdle in learning new technology, but students will grasp the concepts of Drive, Sharing, Collaborating, and etc, much easier than their teachers. I never thought about using the drawing as a whiteboard tool. Will have to give it a shot. Our district currently doesn't support hangouts, but with iPads we can probably use facetime in much the same way as described.

Getting the students to work through the plan is not hard. It's getting the teachers to produce one or getting the teachers to have the students produce on is the problem. It's much easier but way less effective to do CELTA on PowerPoint.
