My favorite productivity app is a free feature that's already on your iPhone - Business Insider

My favorite productivity app is a free feature that's already on your iPhone - Business Insider | Future of Learning | Scoop.it

If you're looking for an app to help you be more productive, you're spoiled for choice.

There are apps to manage your projects and notes. There are apps to turn your Post-It scribbles into shareable notes. There are even apps to divide your to-do list into handy little folders.

But my favorite productivity app doesn't have a fancy name or interface, it doesn't cost a cent, and you don't even have to download it. It's the "Reminders" app that comes installed on your iPhone when you buy it.

The academy opened in 2012, and offers all-through schooling to its local community. Children start in nursery aged 2 and remain until 19, making IPACA function almost like a multi-academy trust but as a single entity.

Interesting reflections about making learning relevant to student needs.   The challenge faced by many schools, colleges and private providers is how to engage staff in using technology, particularly those who are not the millennial generation and often don't use technology very much in their every day life.

More teachers today are providing opportunities for their students to connect and learn in powerful ways. There is an increasing focus on collaboration, competency-based learning, use of open resources, project-based learning, and learning environments are shifting to support these new opportunities.
