From Cindy's Links TCC 4-4

I Scooped this from "iTeach with Technology" blog. Karen Ogen is the author there, but she got it from David Kapuler's blog, "Technology Tidbits."  CreatorVerse looks like a niche which hadn't been filled. Physics and Art! Linden Labs develops games, but has stepped out with more collaborative "gaming."

Learning and Sharing with Ms. Lirenman: Eight Questions I Ask Before an App Can Stay on Student iPads

Learning and Sharing with Ms. Lirenman: Eight Questions I Ask Before an App Can Stay on Student iPads | Edupads | Scoop.it

"For the past couple of years I've been really fortunate to have access to iPads in my classroom.  The increased access to this mobile technology has provided my students with that many more individualized opportunities to show and share their learning.   Now if you're new to this blog you may not realize that student choice and voice is something I believe very strongly about. Very strongly.  This means I am constantly looking for apps that  allow my students to learn, show, and share their knowledge in innovative ways.  As a result I purchase and download many, many iPad apps for my work iPad. I take them for a test drive sort of speak before they make their way onto the iPads my students have access to.  The reality is very few apps I test drive end up on my student's iPads.  But why?  Below you will find some of the questions I ask (and why) before an app will make it on my students iPads.  I am hoping this information will be of benefit for both teachers purchasing apps for their students, and developers creating apps for students.  Here are my top eight questions."

Instantly Close All Safari Tabs in iOS 7 for iPad & iPhone - OSXDaily | Edupads | Scoop.it

"Users of the Safari web browser in the iOS world probably already know that you can close a single browser tab with either a tap of the (X) button, or by swiping the tab away to the left of the screen on the iPhone or iPad. But what if you have a whole bunch of browser tabs open at once that you want to close all together? Rather than swiping each and every one of them away or tapping a bunch of close buttons, you can use a quick trick to ditch all open Safari tabs."

I simply could not help scooping the BaiBoard app (sentiment towards the name of the tool) but I also see it as a perfect tool for real-time presentation of collaborative work done by a group of students. The app offers you a zoomable multi-page whiteboard and lets you collaborate even on PDF documents. And it is free!
