Maria Catarina Donzelli Pereira's curator insight, July 1, 2013 8:24 PM

As autoridades educacionais brasileiras deveriam dar atenção especial a este tipo de material. Contruibuiria muito para melhorar o trabalho do professor, o rendimento do aluno e a melhoria na qualidade educacional.

Augmented Reality Using Aurasma | The Teaching Palette

Augmented Reality Using Aurasma | The Teaching Palette | Edupads | Scoop.it

"I definitely think like a kid when it comes to technology- it has to be fun or I don’t really want anything to do with it. Maybe that’s why I LOOOVE Augmented Reality (AR) and the Aurasma app. Similar to the way a mobile device scans a QR code and links to a website, AR lets you see something not there in reality except when viewed through the mobile device."

Don't sweat over it, iPads are an effective tool in PE - Innovate My School

Don't sweat over it, iPads are an effective tool in PE - Innovate My School | Edupads | Scoop.it

"Reflecting on her year long ‘Learning Innovator’ project, Physical Education teacher Lizzie Wolstenholme investigates different apps for the iPad to determine which ones are most effective at helping students to learn new sports skills, such as the backhand in tennis. One particular app proves that iPads can be beneficial in providing an opportunity to replay students' technique and compare it with the teacher's in a split-screen synchronisation."

Easily Create Classroom Posters on iPad Using Pic Collage App ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Easily Create Classroom Posters on iPad Using Pic Collage App ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Edupads | Scoop.it

"Somebody has recently asked me for  a review of an app that can allow students to easily create posters on iPad. Pic Collage is the best option I recommend. With Pic collage you can take a bunch of picture and make one picture of it.

 

Using Pic Collage you can combine your photos in different ways . Scatter photos onto the background of your choosing or create a grid of your photos. Take the best parts of two photos to make one great one. Create a panorama or a mosaic out of multiple photos. If a picture speaks a thousand words, you can tell a whole story in a single frame with this app."

I love science fairs. Performance based assessment and/or the culmination of a project based learning experience. Pay attention to this if you have access to iPads. If not watch for the Android app.

Schoology vs. Edmodo; How Schoology solved my iPad workflow woes

Schoology vs. Edmodo; How Schoology solved my iPad workflow woes | Edupads | Scoop.it

"In a previous post from December http://ow.ly/mr5pa , I wrote about how I was (sadly) switching from Edmodo http://edmodo.com/ (my long-time LMS love) to Schoology. http://schoology.com/ ; Of the 25 schools I support, 33 classes of students are using a Learning Management System. Since my December revelation, 26 have switched to Schoology and the remainder stayed with Edmodo. I myself maintained both an Edmodo group and started a Schoology course for the twice-weekly after school Student Innovation Team I lead. This, combined with the 33 classes, was a great way for me to learn more about the differences between the two platforms. I've learned a lot, and wanted to share it with you! Below is a quick overview of what we've learned when it comes to Edmodo vs. Schoology."

Great comparison. Liked finding out more info on Schoology.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s curator insight, June 28, 2013 7:21 PM

I have always been a big supporter for Schoology as a LMS.

Marita Diffenbaugh's curator insight, July 5, 2013 3:55 PM

I like the feature of being able to grade the discussions. I love Edmodo, however, Schoology looks like a great solution for secondary classes and their workflow.

Looks like a great tool - I hope there is an Android version of it. 

StudentSupport@EdinburghCollege's curator insight, June 18, 2013 10:35 AM

Studying is not the intended function of this application, however, by uploading lecture slides as images, or taking pictures of the board during class, then uploading these images to Pixntell, would allow you to create your very own custom Flashcards. By recording your own audio notes to accompany the images, you could create short movies that could act as bitesize recap tools to support your revision, or prompts for studying, or a visual plan for your coursework.
