K-5 iPad Apps According to Bloom's Taxonomy - Edutopia | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"In this six-part series, I will highlight apps useful for developing higher order thinking skills in grades K-5 classrooms. Each list will highlight a few apps that connect to the various stages on Bloom's continuum of learning. Given the size and current exponential growth of the app market, I will also assist educators in setting criteria necessary to identify apps that maintain the integrity of teaching for thinking."

Effectively engaging online requires a myriad of skills that we strive to foster in school – effective written communication, brevity and civility. These components are often highlighted in Digital Citizenship programs, but in tradition-bound K12 education, we often deride social media as trite or ineffective.

Many students still do not understand the limitations of finding information on the free web. Google is about the extent of it and if it isn't found in the first few results, it does not exist or is too hard to find (or worse still, what is found must be "it.").

 

From article: "We need to ensure that they know how to evaluate a website, a blog post, a tweet, a Facebook entry. These evaluative skills transfer cross curricularly and prepare students for the broader world of online communication."

"One of the most iconic freedom fighter has just left us a couple of days ago leaving behind him a huge legacy for next generations to learn from. Nelson Mandella's life was a genuine fight for human rights and justice and it was thanks to his civil activism that apartheid was abolished in South Africa. The fight for freedom cost Nelson so dearly, 27 years of his life was spent in prison. The lessons we can draw from  Nelson's eventful life experiences are inestimable and here are some of the teaching resources I have curated fro you to help yu teach your students about this legendary man."

February, African-American History Month, would be a great time to implement these resources for teaching students about this iconic human rights activist. 

andrew mulinge's curator insight, December 9, 2013 3:37 AM

This caught my attention because of the icon associated with the title --- Nelson Mandela. A few days ago, my cousin who is a special education teacher in Richmond, posted his frustrations on Facebook about how a student said "Who is Nelson Mandela and why the hell should we care"? My cousin found this quite disturbing but at the same time, he used it as a teaching moment for him and the student. 

 

At my middle school, every student has an ipad that they use daily. The usage of the ipad vary from warm-up activities to homework assignments. Students of this generation coincide more and more with technological innovations like the ipad. This particular app celebrating Nelson Mandela is another example of how learning can can be done through apps in exchange for books. Students love to play games and love to use their ipads. Incorporating critical information in the apps not only allow the student to learn a great deal but it's also fun. I would suggest that my cousin consider using different techniques through the internet to teach students like that about Madiba.
