re Teacherkit - it was advised to us to use it and we used it for about 2 to 3 weeks as a whole staff. Following lost of data and keyboard not working - a lot of freezes - we contacted Teacherkit to see if there was some bug. We got no reply to email, tweets... We finally got a reply via twitter when someone recommended Teacherkit and I said I had reservation. At that stage we had moved to Idoceo (paid app) but if you have a question, you get an answer within 24 hours . Teacherkit asked if I culd be skyped etc... at that stage it was too late. Last week, 4 weeks later, I got an email saying they had got my email about my problems and it has been logged and they will be in touch. I d rather they had a pay version so that the bugs could be fixed quicker.

"I’ve always wanted to write a post on Evernote. It was in fact my interview on Skitch for the Evernote blog that inspired teachingwithipad.org. While I can not boast to being a power-user of Evernote, I am finding more and more ways to use it to organize my life. Evernote is, in my opinion, one of the most useful and resourceful apps you will ever use."

Apple TV in Schools  -  iPad 4 Schools - Making Simple Sense of iPads in Schools | Getting Started with Technology | Scoop.it

"Apple TV (US$99) is a box you attach to the projector / TV that picks up the screen of any iPad and displays it without the need for wires! The teacher can walk around their room and display anything that’s on their iPad screen on the Projector/TV. This means the teacher can display from anywhere and even use the iPads camera to show student work ‘live’ without gathering students around one point in the room."

Using Showbie as a collaboration tool

Using Showbie as a collaboration tool | Getting Started with Technology | Scoop.it

I have been using Showbie for quite a while, both at my school and with the schools I support. It has certainly solved the problem of how students can quickly send their work to the teacher and the teacher share resources with the pupils. We have used it a lot and we like how it can be accessed online on devices other than the iPad. It also works well for assessment and archiving work. The class codes can be given to the headteacher so he/she can see all pupil portfolios, making it good to show parents and inspectors.

Each pupil has their own login in normal use. However, some of what we do at school is collaborative. For example, a group of Year 6 pupils can each be working on a short video which could then be stitched together in iMovie etc. It is not possible to for one pupil to send a file to another using Showbie so we have created group logins. This means that a group of pupils would all log in using the same username and password. Each student can then submit a file to an assignment and the other pupils see and download that file onto their iPads. Importantly the teacher can also see whole groups work and each part of it.

There are many collaborative tools on the iPad but as many schools are using Showbie then this may create another possibility.

Why Kids Must Be Taught Digital Manners Infographic

Why Kids Must Be Taught Digital Manners Infographic | Getting Started with Technology | Scoop.it

Teaching students the importance of having and using manners is nothing new to teachers. However, what has changed is the type of etiquette kids needs today—namely, the digital kind. True, please, thank you and excuse me are still significant, but in addition to these basics, students growing up in this ever-connected, social media crazed world require much more. Concepts such as online privacy, sharing and creating a positive digital footprint through the demonstration of responsible online behaviors are just as vital.
