Learning about Angles using iPads

Learning about Angles using iPads | EdTech Curated | Scoop.it

The App market is quite saturated with Maths apps, particularly ones where pupils are just tapping on the right answer in an activity which is just a digital version of a worksheet with colour and sound. For me, the most useful feature of the iPad is the fact it has a camera which can be accessed from many apps.

 

This week I have been working with Year 5 pupils who have been learning about different types of angles. Once they understood the different types, they displayed their knowledge by finding angles in the classroom, taking a photo and importing into an apps such as Educreations or Explain Everything where it can be labelled and annotated. Simple idea I know but a good use of the iPad's features. Can anyone spot the mistake?

Everything I Need To Know About Education ... I Learned In Kindergarten! - iPads in Education | EdTech Curated | Scoop.it

I was recently giving a workshop at a local elementary school. Walking around and speaking to teachers and children it suddenly dawned on me that several of the "revolutionary" educational changes we've been calling for have actually already been around for quite a while - just talk a stroll down to the Kindergarten classes.

CALL Newsletter - January 2013: YOUTUBE in New and Unusual Ways

New Angles on YouTube Use in the Classroom

The vast popularity of YouTube has inevitably found its way into the ESL classroom. This can be a great benefit, as long as pedagogical considerations are not overshadowed by the mere presence of a video. In fact, YouTube can be utilized in less known ways that can be of benefit for the student. This article discusses three tools that can be used to maximize YouTube for instructional purposes: creating video annotations, controlling the playback speed of the video, and displaying videos with minimal distractions.

Rehab Rajab's insight:

Great insigts on YouTube for ESL/EFL.

It is fully integrated with WebDav https://w.showbie.com and allows kids to upload their work from multiple Apps such as keynote and Pages in addition to photos PDF files and both text and voice notes.

Its sharp design, practical portability, and the sublime sense of mobile gadgetry it bestows upon its users and, above all, its widespread among learners , all of these factors combined made this tablet an indispensable tool in the learning toolkit of students.

Developing Speaking & Listening Skills using the iPad - July 2013 Blog Post

Developing Speaking & Listening Skills using the iPad - July 2013 Blog Post | EdTech Curated | Scoop.it

This term I have been using the iPads in school to develop the pupil's speaking and listening skills. Here are a few things we have done.

 

Gruffalo
If you follow me on twitter, you may have noticed a few weeks ago that I shared a video of the animation Year 3 have produced. We focussed on the Gruffalo story and they retold it using the Puppet Pals app. The children chose a character from the story, drew it and on a separate piece of paper, drew the background for it. They then added the characters and backgrounds to the Puppet Pal's library before scripting out their scenes with other children. You can see a few examples at these links here.
https://www.box.com/s/b5ercugrc8z5uuwbilm4
https://www.box.com/s/qll9bm05xqdjx61xor9l

We exported the videos to iMovie and even added the Gruffalo soundtrack. However, there is no wifi in Year 3 so I had to film the iPads in order to share. We are now using QR codes in school and I uploaded the videos above to the box cloud app (www.box.com) where you can share a link. I attached the link to a QR Code Creator app and we then put these QR codes in our weekly newsletter for parents to view the videos on their devices. With children creating so much video and audio on the iPads, QR codes are being used more and more to share pupil work.

 

Advertising
Years 5 and 6 have been creating journeys through time using iMovie, Garageband and the Green Screen Studio FX app to impart historical information in an entertaining way. However, amongst that we worked on their advertising skills. We used the Titan Player app to download adverts from youtube to the iPad's camera roll where we put them into iMovie, removed the sound and the pupils added the voiceovers. They also created products in Foldify app, took a screen grab and added that into iMovie to advertise. The last step was to create some background music in Garageband.

In August I will be updating my book for free but you can download the June version here.
