15 Excellent iPad Apps for Creating Books ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

15 Excellent iPad Apps for Creating Books ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"I just learned through our colleagues in TeachThought about this interesting list featuring 15 iPad apps to create books. The list was created by Meg Wilson . Of course the word 'book' here is, more or less, used metaphorically to mean small to medium size writing projects. These are projects you can do with your students in class or ones that can span the entire semester or even school year. Book Creator and Book Writer  are my favourite apps in this list and some of the apps included here are also new to me which is not surprising giving the rapidity with which apps are developed and created each day."

8 Must See TED Talks for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"I love TED talks and I always look forward for their new releases. You can learn as deep and profound insights from these talks as when reading a non-fiction book. I know we all have our time constraints that would not allow us to sit in front of an iPad or computer for 20 minutes watching a talk but there is always snatches of time to do it particularly in the weekends. Create a list of what to watch , as I do, and bookmark the talks that interest you and watch them later when you have time."

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, November 18, 2013 3:33 AM

"Technology will win in a big way in the educational arena in the coming years; and it must in order for our students to stay competitive. The question is who will enthusiastically embrace the change, who will begrudgingly, but none-the-less accept it, and who will abstain and die standing their ground. The future of technology in schools will not be a case of the have and have-nots in terms of money, but a case of the have and have-nots in terms of leadership."

10 Ways to Get Students Engaged | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

10 Ways to Get Students Engaged | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

Getting students engaged is not an easy task particularly in an age that is full of all kinds of distractions. Some argue that some of the habits that students have developed as a result of their heavy use of emerging technologies and social media have negatively impacted their capacities to concentrate and focus for longer stretches of time.

 

Multitasking in particular is blamed for this and I personally side with the camp that views multitasking as a distractor to productivity and not a positive attribute.

Yes multitaskers are hard to hook in and keep their  focus on a learning task for longer time but motivation makes a difference. When students are motivated to learn, focus and attention comes along easily. Below is a beautiful graphic featuring 10 ways to get students motivated.
