A stretch for the "literacy" boards but oh-so-important to helping our students learn and grow.

Numbered Wallpapers - Learning in Hand | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
A great management tip for school or class sets of iPads, tablets, and
iPods is to number each device. Setting the lock screen wallpaper to an
image with each device's number will make it easy to identify devices.

From Tony Vincent. Learning in Hand TCC 4-1

Podcasting was my first exposure to Tony Vincent (@learninginhand, @tonyvincent or on FB) and his website. He still has the most amazing lesson plan for a podcast about your town. 

But as you can see there is a Twitter feed and FaceBook addition. A blog page has instructions on ideas you can use in class. QR code cubes for selecting a reflection topic, ipad uses, instagrams 10 feet long, jigsaw puzzle makers, and on and on…

Terri Roberts's curator insight, August 23, 2013 9:05 AM

Great idea carts of ipads, especially for elementary students!

Kids projects: Make a vacation travel trailer with iMovie on your iPhone or iPad! - iMore

Kids projects: Make a vacation travel trailer with iMovie on your iPhone or iPad! - iMore | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"Summer and vacation go together like, well, two of the best things in the world. Parents have time off from work, kids have time off from school, the weather is nice, the sun is shining, and travel beckons. Whether it's a day at a local fun spot, a trip across country, or an adventure half-way around the world, memories will be made. Amazing memories, crazy memories, shared memories. No matter how great a vacation is, however, you can never be there forever, nor can you take everyone you love with you. What you can do is bring the vacation home for you and for them! With your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, not only can you take videos and pictures of those magic travel moments, but you can edit and share them right in iMovie, even right away if you want to. Best of all, for kids (of all ages!), iMovie's trailer templates make it incredibly quick and easy to put together something short, sweet, and fun!"

Apps in Education: Teacher 101 iPad Sessions

Apps in Education: Teacher 101 iPad Sessions | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"I have recently been asked to provide a number iPad sessions for teachers. I had one school where they had recently bought a large number of iPads and wanted to start from scratch. Another had a 1:1 Program in a particular year group but wanted their colleagues to get an understanding of the potential of iPads in the classroom. I was able to use this Teacher ToolKit idea for both groups."

Forget Apple's PhotoStream: Flickr Has Automatic Photo Uploads to 1000GB!

Forget Apple's PhotoStream: Flickr Has Automatic Photo Uploads to 1000GB! | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"Flickr, a photo service that was very popular a few years ago, is making a huge comeback. It seemed like no one was using it the past couple years since Yahoo purchased Flickr in 2005. However, it now has an amazing couple of FREE features that you won’t want to miss. You can now back up 1 TERABYTE of photos for no cost. Comparing that to Dropbox (2GB at sign up), Flickr gives you 500 times the amount of photo backup. Obviously, Dropbox is a multi-use app that has become indispensable for many, but for photo backup, Flickr is king. To put it into perspective, you could upload 500 000 photos into your account (assuming an average 2MB per photo). That’s probably more than the large majority of people will ever need to upload."

Managing iPad Videos in Schools- Visual Guide for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Managing iPad Videos in Schools- Visual Guide for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

""Managing iPad YouTube in Schools" is a visual guide created by iPadWells 

from iPad4Schools.  

 

In this guide iPadWells walks teachers through the process they use in their school to create, share and teach using videos. YouTube is the principal video hosting used in this guide. That being said, it does not mean that the guide is not relevant for your teaching situation even if YuTube is banned in your school. You can still benefit from the tips and ideas provided by iPadWells on how to create enhanced videos using a wide variety of apps and share them with students who can access them at home."

We’d had enough technology, and now it was time to re-engage as a class. Clearly, the iMacs had become a deterrent to learning rather than a catalyst, so it was time to re-group. Would I recommend the above strategy to middle or high school students?
