50 Resources For Teaching With iPads - Te@chThought | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
So we thought we’d start an ongoing collection–that is, one that is updated to reflect trends and changes–of the best resources for teaching with the iPad.

This will include resources from all of the best sources, from Apple’s own stuff to TeachThought to edutopia to MindShift to DMLCentral to Jackie Gerstein and more. We can update it, or make it a wiki to crowdsource the process, or you can add suggestions in the comments below. Based on the activity of the comments, and the sharing of the post, we’ll decide how to handle it moving forward.

Great resource for a 1:1 iPad classroom/school. However, this is a great model for any 1:1 setup. You truly need to consider the Teacher/Student/Parent paradigm when deciding on applications that enhance the learning environment. Where there is not workflow vision the people will perish.

Seeing Is Believing: Visual vs. Linear Content

Seeing Is Believing: Visual vs. Linear Content | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"In order for our learners to see how designing information changes how it is viewed, the students this year placed their visual infographics side-by-side with their linear notes to see the transformation. It was the “ah ha” moment, when they could examine how the delivery of content mattered and how the deliberate choices in font hierarchy, color selection, and placement changed the way others perceived the ideas."

What a difference a visual can make? Check out the projects shown in this post. Compare the linear version (text only) with a visual that has the same information but presented in a completely different way. Which one do you think your students would be able to drawn to?

In this post ASIDE provides a bit of the history of how they have gone about teaching their students to create visuals (also known as infographics).

Along with providing the visual and the linear version of three projects they also provide two charts:

* The Elements of Design (the tools to make art)

* The Principles of Design ( how to use the tools to make art)

There are many free tools that help students create visuals. If you have been considering a project that would have your students take part in this type of project this post provides valuable information that will help the project run more smoothly.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, October 1, 10:13 PM

Can we teach students in elementary and middle school the concepts of financial literacy? With the right resources the answer would be yes.

ASIDE has provided a range of excellent resources in this post. You will find an excellent infographic that covers the Story of Money, beginning with bartering animal hides and teeth as well as shells up to a gold coin minted in Australia in 2011 that weighs (take a breath) 2,231 pounds. (There is a great math problem to be solved.)

A number of videos are also provided. One looks at student debt and one is a TED-Ed video.

There are also additional resources provided.

Financial literacy is an important concept for students to learn, and I would think the earlier they understand the concepts the better off they will be. To learn more click through to the post.

Differentiated instruction, the tailoring of educational experiences to meet individual learner needs, is nothing new. Hardworking teachers have always recognized the diverse needs of students and adjusted their instruction to account for them. Through one-on-one coaching sessions, small group activities, individualized course packets, reading assignments, and projects, teachers are addressing a range of student levels, interests, strengths, weaknesses, and goals in their classrooms today.

25 Practices That Foster Lifelong Learning - InformED | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"Is your capacity for learning is fixed or fluid? Can you improve your intelligence and talents through hard work and practice, or are you stuck with the brains you’ve got? Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck says most of us have either a “fixed” or “growth” mindset when it comes to learning. Most of us can get through sixteen years of schooling regardless of which mindset we have, but when it comes to lifelong learning–learning for the sake of learning, without outside pressure–only a growth mindset will cut it."

Looking For Real-World Math Problems? Try Google Earth! - MInd/Shift | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
ne of the most common questions math teachers hear from their students is, “why does this matter?” They are constantly trying to convince students that math is useful and could help them in their everyday lives. But it can be a tough sell. Word problems alone often feel contrived and students see right through them.

Thomas Petra has taught math at every level for more than 20 years and encountered dubious students at every grade level. That’s why he developed Real World Math, a free website with lessons based on Google Earth aimed at grades 5 – 10. “I was trying to show them actual applications of the math ideas that they see in the textbook,” Petra said.
