Two Wonderful Visual Lists of Educational iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Two Wonderful Visual Lists of Educational iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educational IPad Info | Scoop.it

"In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices.

The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same."

Educational Technology: Highly Used Apps in High Schools

Educational Technology: Highly Used Apps in High Schools | Educational IPad Info | Scoop.it

"Ask a group of high school teachers what they want from technology in the classroom, and you’re likely to hear variations on three answers: They want tools that help students write well, do research based on solid references, and improve time-management skills. When students enter high school, educational technology is no longer mainly for drilling or practice or simply keeping students engaged. Now tech provides the day-planner, the reference library, and the easily carried note-taking method that can help high school students succeed."

Virtual Frog Dissection on Your iPad

Virtual Frog Dissection on Your iPad | Educational IPad Info | Scoop.it

"Frog Dissection for iPad is an app that is popular with biology teachers. The latest version of the app includes more labels, quizzes, and videos. Of course, the main purpose of the app still remains. That purpose is to provide a virtual environment in which students can dissect a frog just as they would if they had a frog and a scalpel in your classroom. The app provides step-by-step directions for students to follow as they virtually dissect their frogs."

That's the understated version. Another way to put it? Update your iPhone right now.

Losing an iPad: Simple Things to Protect Identity and Theft on Your Mobile Devices | The Edublogger

Losing an iPad: Simple Things to Protect Identity and Theft on Your Mobile Devices | The Edublogger | Educational IPad Info | Scoop.it

"Last night I had one of those incredibly horrifying moments that I hope you never experience.

 

Just as I’m getting ready to go to bed at 11 PM in my hotel room I suddenly realize my iPad was missing. Losing an iPad is upsetting – knowing the damage someone could do if they accessed online accounts using my iPad was terrifying.

 

Fortunately I knew I had some protection because I password protect my devices and had set up Find My iPad/Phone.  Which can’t be said for many of the educators I noticed using mobile devices at ISTE.  But had I done enough?"

45+ Teacher Recommended Educational Apps : Teacher Reboot Camp | Educational IPad Info | Scoop.it

"Educators are beginning to see the potential of using mobile devices and apps for ongoing professional development as well as to improve literacy and cognitive development for learners. Apps are equipped with several features that motivate learners to create stories, presentations, and projects that are hands-on and use their creativity as well as their critical thinking skills. Once an app is downloaded, many features can be accessed without an Internet connection. Educators can also use various apps at conferences to connect with other educators or capture a presentation. Below are the various apps nominated by teachers for an Edublog Award so they must be worth checking out. Each has a link and a description. Make sure to check out the Edublog Awards for blogs, wikis, and web tools that teachers worldwide have recommended."

The ‘Evergreen’ iPad: Why all your apps should fit on one screen | eSchool News

Time and again, I run into educators who spend hours reviewing long lists of largely drill-and-kill subject apps, such as “100 History Apps” or “50 Spanish Apps for the Classroom.” This obsession demonstrates the most fundamental of iPad integration mistakes—the belief that the iPad is fundamentally a vehicle for teaching content with apps.
Andrew 's insight:

Great article on using the IPad for more than just drill and kill teaching apps.
