We have come a long way with using Google on the iPad. We now have 50 official apps from Google, Inc. for iOS. The following is a list of Google Apps for iOS. This list is exhaustive and includes several apps that are not on the infographic Guide to Google Apps for the iPad. Some of these are natural for classroom integration, and some are more for personal or business use. Some are optimized for both iPad and iPhone; some are only optimized for iPhone. Each app title is linked directly to the App Store so you can click directly from your device to download each app.

Why professors shouldn’t ban smartphones

Why professors shouldn’t ban smartphones | DIGITAL LEARNING | Scoop.it

As smartphones have become more common, educators have struggled with the question of what to do with smartphones in the classroom. For K-12 educators, the answer has been to ban smartphones from the classroom completely. College professors have also banned smartphones in increasing numbers. But now there’s some evidence to suggest that banning smartphones in the college classroom isn’t such a good idea.

 

A study conducted by researchers in Singapore found that undergraduate students who were allowed to keep their phones with them actually scored better on tasks that measured their cognitive functioning. Even when they weren’t allowed to use their phones, students who were allowed to keep their phones in their pockets performed better than students whose phones were confiscated.

 

In this case, researchers theorized that the poor performance by students without phones was due to a kind of smartphone withdrawal. When students had their phones taken away, they may have been anxious about missing out on something—a text message or friend request, for example. This anxiety could take students’ minds off of what they should be learning.

As teachers, we need to take into account in which moments it is necessary to use the cell phones within the classrooms and which situations is essential confiscate them. Furthermore, we need to consider the age of the students and the subject that we are teaching.

5 Awesome TED Talks On How Technology Is Changing Education

5 Awesome TED Talks On How Technology Is Changing Education | DIGITAL LEARNING | Scoop.it
In the last ten years, technology has changed the way we work and communicate with others — and it’s also changed how we interact in the classroom. In fact, some educators argue that technology can improve the classroom by eliminating the need for a physical one, and allow students to learn remotely, from wherever they do their best work. While it’s still too early to know if this is the most effective way to teach, it’s important to stay-to-update on these innovations in education and see what we can learn from them. In these TED talks, students and educators share their …

5 powerful tools to create Educational Whiteboard Animation Videos

5 powerful tools to create Educational Whiteboard Animation Videos | DIGITAL LEARNING | Scoop.it
You probably have seen them before, whiteboard style animations are everywhere online. They are used by profit and non-profit entities to advertise, educate or to simply communicate effectively. Two popular educational YouTube channels that use this animation style are TED Ed and RSA Animate. In short, whiteboard animation (also called video scribing or animated doodling) is a video clip in which the recorder records the process of drawing on a whiteboard while using audio comment. The final result is a beautiful synchronization of the drawings and the audio feedback. In education, whiteboard animation videos are used in language teaching/learning, in professional development sessions, to create educational tutorials and presentations and many more. In today’s post, we are sharing with you some good web tools you can use to create whiteboard animation videos. Check them out below and share with us your feedback in our Facebook page.

I’m a great believer in taking lots of small steps to make a bigger gain. Incremental improvements that you get better and better at through deliberate practice is one of those things that make us better teachers in the classroom. Often when it comes to technology, one of the biggest barriers to pupils making progress is the time it takes to move on 30 people at the same time. PE teachers regularly face this kind of issue as noted by Simon Johnson below:

“Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.”

“Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.” | DIGITAL LEARNING | Scoop.it

IB teachers are moving beyond traditional approaches to homework to maximize student potential and increase engagement, as they share with IB World in the second article in the series

While evidence suggests homework has no impact on student performance when it comes to elementary-school-aged children, research shows that it leads to greater academic achievement for students aged 11 and up.

But the traditional ‘memorize and regurgitate facts’ approach to homework has had its day. Many educators are wising up to the idea that this can have the opposite and unintended effect of disengaging students. Workloads have also been brought into question – excessive homework is recognized as a contributor to student stress and a “thief” of valuable family time.

IB World Schools are making a stand, and scrapping traditional homework in favour of student-led learning and exploration.

10 Steps To A Successful School iPad Program

10 Steps To A Successful School iPad Program | DIGITAL LEARNING | Scoop.it

"iPads have quickly become a the hottest commodity in educational technology. Apple reports that schools are purchasing iPads over MacBooks by a ratio of 2:1. However, the rush to purchase the latest technologies often precedes the careful planning and preparation that’s crucial to their success as educational tools.

There’s simply no magic pill – whether it’s the laptop, smartboard, iPad or the next device that comes along in a year or two. Technology alone won’t ever have the capacity to improve education unless it’s woven into a holistic vision that meets the very real and urgent educational objectives that prepare our students for life outside and after school. Well-planned technology deployments can however have a transformative impact on learning.

Here’s a list of ten requirements for a successful iPad implementation in schools."
