Spundge is a cool new tool for creating visual presentations from the web or with your own content. Though it is aimed at business professionals , it can be used by teachers (aren't they professionals?) for creating educational presentations and for storytelling.

Spundge is free of charge.

"iPad Educators is a great website with the tagline "Redefining Teaching, From Dubia to the World." The website is run by four educators and is non-commercial, which is great because their app reviews are not paid for by the app developers (as I have discovered, many app review sites get paid to write their reviews). iPad Educators also has featured articles and interviews with iPad educators."

Louise Robinson-Lay's curator insight, March 23, 2014 3:53 PM

This is something I have been banging on about for a while now. If we get learning objectives right the students understand exactly what they are looking for and the teacher can cut from the lesson any extraneous tasks that don't meet these objectives. The lesson is more focused and learning can be measured more accurately.

How to Infuse Digital Literacy Throughout the Curriculum

How to Infuse Digital Literacy Throughout the Curriculum | eTEK | Scoop.it

"So how are we doing on the push to teach “digital literacy” across the K12 school spectrum? From my perspective as a school-based technology coach and history teacher, I’d say not as well as we might wish – in part because our traditional approach to curriculum and instruction wants to sort everything into its place."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 27, 2014 9:14 PM

How often have you heard the term digital native or digital immigrant? Are our students digital natives because they were born after digital items were widely available? Does this factor mean that they understand how to use these tools effectively and that they are digitally literate? For me the answer to that is that they do not fully understand how to use digital tools effectively and they are not digitally literate. This is something we need to teach them.

This post does an excellent job looking at this issue. Specifically it looks at these areas:

* Students must learn how to evaluate online content - Think of this as a research skill.

* Students must be able to engage with others online and communicate - Think of this as a communication tool.

* Students need to learn how to create and projects can be digital.

These three areas come together and create the skill sets needed to digitally literate. More information is available about this in the post.

And if you happen to live in the New England area you might consider checking out the Massachusetts New Literacies Institute that will be taking place in at the Kittredge Center in Holyoke, MA from July 8 - 10. Information for this may be found at http://mnli.org/. This institute looks at three cornerstones: Online Content Reading, Online Collaborative Inquiry and Online Content Construction "preparing future-ready teachers."

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, October 25, 2014 10:42 AM

A very interesting article that examines whether digital literacy is a surface approach, or something understood clearly by students. I think we could do it a little better, and this involves some extra awareness of these teaching moments when they arrive! For instance, I use the first presentation-style assignment for my Year 7s to teach about plagiarism and referencing online sources. 

Julie Hogarth's curator insight, November 4, 2014 9:09 PM

Digital Literacy should be integrated into every day curriculum to be effectively instilled into student thinking and behavior.

Mine was not drawn on a napkin, but on Notability. And, to answer that snarky Johannesburg based iPad trainer who cannot believe I can do what I do using the iPad, yes I did create it myself!

 

This is what I think iPads are 'for' in education. Let me know what you think."
