I haven't tried this yet, but it does look very interesting as a digital literacy tool.

Door 24 - Practice Math and Solve a Mystery - iPad Apps for School

Door 24 - Practice Math and Solve a Mystery - iPad Apps for School | Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it

"From the developers of the fun vocabulary app, The World’s Worst Pet comes a new math app called Door 24. Door 24 is a free iPad app in which students practice mathematics skills while working toward the goal of helping the game’s characters Bella and Beau fix Victor the robot’s fried circuits and solve the secret of Door 24. The main premise of the game is that students have to use number facts, order of operation, and number relationships to create expressions equivalent to 24."

Social Media as a teaching tool: How to Tweet your students some knowledge - teachingwithipad.org | Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it

"As teachers, the pull of social media on your students attention will already be well known to you. The online world exerts a magnetic lure on the attention of young people today, offering community and information sharing, entertainment and gossip in ways that often pull students away from the blackboard. Understanding this dynamic, some educators are now bringing social media into the classroom in surprising ways. By working with something your students already enjoy and don’t, perhaps, associate with learning, there are opportunities for creative teaching, as well as making genuine connection with your students."

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Develop Web Search Challenges for Students

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Develop Web Search Challenges for Students | Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it

"I spent the last two days working with teachers in Grande Prairie, Alberta. One of the activities that we did yesterday was develop our own Google Search challenge activities. We used the basic model of the Google a Day Challenges combined with some of the obfuscation methods that Daniel Russell uses in his weekly search challenges. I've outlined the basic process below."

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, January 29, 2014 6:56 AM

This could be nice to plan or summarise a story, for reading or listening comprehension with students. Or for reviewing the stages of a task, or process (perhaps a process, for passive grammar). In teacher training it could be an option for self-observation, reviewing the stages of a lesson and how it went.

Being able to use meaningful educational apps in the classroom can be a beneficial tool for students and teachers alike. We need to incorporate new media literacy skills into the 21st century classroom! I am curious to see just how much we can simplify the process so that any teacher can realize his or her vision for an educational app.
