Some of The Best Storytelling Apps for Elementary Students - EdTech & MLearning

Some of The Best Storytelling Apps for Elementary Students - EdTech & MLearning | Apptastic ID | Scoop.it
The apps below are particularly useful for elementary students but they can also be used with other age groups. Elementary teachers often complain about the paucity of apps that are kids appropriate compared with apps for other age groups. So we thought it would be useful to create a section in this blog devoted entirely to apps specifically curated for elementary teachers. After we have covered math and writing apps, today’s post features some very good iPad storytelling apps to use with young kids. You can use these apps to help kids develop a wide range of basic literacy skills that include: writing, reading and speaking.

K-5 iPad Apps According to Bloom's Taxonomy - Edutopia

K-5 iPad Apps According to Bloom's Taxonomy - Edutopia | Apptastic ID | Scoop.it

"In this six-part series, I will highlight apps useful for developing higher order thinking skills in grades K-5 classrooms. Each list will highlight a few apps that connect to the various stages on Bloom's continuum of learning. Given the size and current exponential growth of the app market, I will also assist educators in setting criteria necessary to identify apps that maintain the integrity of teaching for thinking."

This looks like a great series - I reviewed a few of the posts and they are very well organized. Each one provides a summary review of a component of Bloom's Taxonomy and an explanation of connections with apps. Then there are specific examples of apps provided. A great resource for diversifying your instruction.

I have iPads in the Classroom! Now What? | Apptastic ID | Scoop.it

"It sounds so cool to say “We have/use iPad in our school/classroom”.  Parents, community members and stakeholders might equal hearing such a statement with the assurance that the teacher/school is on the cutting edge of technology and their students are being prepared for a new world.  iPads (just as Smartboards used to) are a visual, easily counted and recognizable icon for such assurance.  Many schools around the globe are jumping on that proverbial “iPad bandwagon”

iPads are being handed out to faculty.a small number of devices or a class iPad cart is made available for classrooms to checkout.students might be asked to bring, lease or use school owned devices to create a 1:1 environment

You might be one of the teachers who is excited about the possibilities or apprehensive and fearful of the seemingly overwhelming task in front of you how to manage your classroom, students and the devices AND at the same time use them to improve student learning.

You might be thinking…

My 24 Most-Used Education Apps (What Are Yours?) - Edudemic

My 24 Most-Used Education Apps (What Are Yours?) - Edudemic | Apptastic ID | Scoop.it

Posted by Jeff Dunn

 

The Apple iPad is one of the biggest things we all talk about when it comes to education technology. It’s nothing new. But what is new is that amount of sharing teachers are doing around the world about what iPad apps work best for them. Some create lists of their favorite apps, others share screenshots using the old ‘home button + lock button’ feature on the iPad.

 

I see a few iPad screenshots here and there in my Twitter feed on a regular basis. But when I saw the most recent shot from Rob Brocklebank, I just had to add it to Edudemic. He shared the 24 (all the apps you can fit on one screen without using folders) most-used and favorite iPad apps for teachers.

Using these apps students will be able to organize their study materials, arrange their classes and courses, track their assignments and tasks and also collaboratively work on their homework. Of course the list is not exhaustive and there are several other apps to be added to it but I only included the 6 most popular ones."

Green Screen iPad review | iPad Insight | Apptastic ID | Scoop.it

"As a young wannabe film maker (or nerd as it’s more commonly referred to) in the early 90s, I used to love grabbing the family camcorder and knocking up some quality Hollywood remakes. My greatest hits included remakes of Jurassic Park, Ghostbusters and the criminally underrated original production “That Army Bloke II”. I’m still waiting for an offer for the screenplay for that one. Me and my sister had to be pretty creative with our movies as special effects were limited to fade to white and macro. Nowadays with the iPad, the world is your digital celluloid oyster and Do Ink’s excellent Green Screen app is a fantastic addition to the amateur film maker’s armoury. "

You might often use YouTube or perhaps TED for viewing videos on the iPad, but neither really fit the bill if you’re looking to quickly learn about everyday topics. YouTube is quantity over quality and TED is focused more on the education sector.

 

Aiming to fill that void is an interesting new iPad app, called Curious (free, iTunes). Coming from the same folks at Curious.com who specialize in online learning, the app lets users choose from hundreds of thousands of lessons from experts around the globe."

IPad Teaching and Learning

IPad Teaching and Learning | Apptastic ID | Scoop.it

`Beginning in our next school year, we are very excited to implement iPads (iPad2 devices) as a tool for collaborative learning in our English and Media faculty. We believe that the technology can enhance our pedagogy, whilst engaging our students in the basics of reading, writing and speaking & listening. We believe that the devices can harness excitement and confidence in our students, unleashing greater creativity and raising literacy standards. By using Apple TV, we will use the devices as a tool for formative assessment, immediately streaming student responses, writing, annotation or presentations and films etc. We are not going for the 1-to-1 model, instead the device will be used as a collaborative tool in groups. A class set will effectively be 7 to 8 iPads.``

Mobile authoring of open educational resources as reusable learning objects

Mobile authoring of open educational resources as reusable learning objects | Apptastic ID | Scoop.it

The inclusion of integrated hardware sensors in mobile devices provides the possibility of augmenting learning activities with sensor data. Technology enhanced learning activities, such as those created with the mobile authoring tool in this project, capture spatially distributed physical sensory data, such as video, photos, audio recordings, and GPS locations. Vogel, Spikol, Kurti, and Milrad (2010) state that there are ongoing research challenges related to integrating this collected sensor data to support learning but conclude that “mobile learning can best provide support for learning in context” (p. 65). Thus, the proposed tool must promote capturing contextual experiences via multimedia examples of the environment and their locations. Context is defined as any information illustrating the situation of a learner such as location, time, activities, and surrounding environmental characteristics (Vogel, Spikol, Kurti, & Milrad, 2010). As a result, the proposed tool will capture a representation of these contextual attributes.
