10 Reasons Why Handheld Devices Should Be Banned for Children Under the Age of 12 - Huffington Post

10 Reasons Why Handheld Devices Should Be Banned for Children Under the Age of 12 - Huffington Post | Educational iPad Apps | Scoop.it
"The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Canadian Society of Pediatrics state infants aged 0-2 years should not have any exposure to technology, 3-5 years be restricted to one hour per day, and 6-18 years restricted to 2 hours per day (AAP 2001/13, CPS 2010). Children and youth use 4-5 times the recommended amount of technology, with serious and often life threatening consequences (Kaiser Foundation 2010, Active Healthy Kids Canada 2012)."

Finally a Green Screen App I can use with Pupils!

Finally a Green Screen App I can use with Pupils! | Educational iPad Apps | Scoop.it
In my opinion, though others may disagree, the iPad has been crying out for a simple and effective Green Screen app since it's introduction. I won't mention any specific apps but the ones I had tried were far too complicated for Primary pupils and the activities became very teacher led. I have recently been using Green Screen by DoInk. https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/green-screen-by-do-ink/id730091131?mt=8 with upper Key Stage 2. What I like most is how quickly the pupils can create their videos using the app. They find the background video/image and add that into the time line. The video of the pupils standing in front of a green screen can then been filmed in real-time over the top. Videos can then be shared to the camera roll. I particularly like using the app in conjunction with apps such as I Can Present (as a teleprompt) and iMovie (to stitch videos together and add soundtrack for GarageBand) I am looking forward to trying more Green Screen work with other age groups next term to see how they handle the app. I am also keen to try the Touchcast app as it includes many of the features of iMovie, Explain Everything and Green Screen in one app.

The idea of taking notes in a different form rather than linear and adding drawings will appeal to the visual teacher or earner.

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool | Educational iPad Apps | Scoop.it

Book creator has probably been the app I have used most, in my teaching, with pupils and in my training. The blank canvas aspect means it can be used across the whole curriculum and the addition of the pen tool in the last few weeks has added to that.

 

We use Showbie at school for pupils to share their work, including books made with Book Creator from the iPads and home to the teachers for assessment. Recently, we have used both the Pen Tool and Record feature to give feedback on the pupils' eBooks. The pupils send their books using Showbie and the teacher opens them up on his/her iPad. They can then annotate with their voice, pen and text. The book can then be sent back to the pupils using Showbie. The pupil can either change the original book and delete the annotated one or change the annotated book and delete the original.

 

The screenshot shows a book of a Science experiment. The teacher can annotate with arrows but also add audio feedback. All elements of Book Creator can be deleted so the pupil can restore any annotated book to the original.

 

This is obviously not a new idea but the pen tool has certainly made this quicker in a widely used app such as Book Creator.
