10 Awesome iPad Apps to Engage Students in Hands-on Learning ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Ideas for a Classroom with 1 iPad | Scoop.it

"Here are some great iPad apps to boost students creativity and get them engaged in hands-on learning tasks. Using these apps students will be able to carry out a variety of creative activities including : making talking avatars,  creating digital books, recording screenshots and tutorials, creating pic collages,  and making videos and audio clips . All of these apps and many more are included in this wonderful visual from Tony Vincent."

These  apps are proving to be very useful in stimulating learning of children with learning difficulties. Teachers need training to integrate the use of assistive technology in their lessons.

Slides from Nik Peachey concerning iPad use in the context of one-to-one teaching. As well as providing some practical tips there are some useful links to tools that will enable students to practise diverse literacy skills.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, August 27, 12:10 AM

Here is a great presentation filled to the brim with simple ideas for using iPads - from Tellagami (recorded animation) to TodaysMeet (backchannel) to Fotobabble (recording voice over a picture). Some of these are ones we have used at school before, others open up new channels we are yet to explore!

Using iPad Stop Animation within Primary Education

Using iPad Stop Animation within Primary Education | Ideas for a Classroom with 1 iPad | Scoop.it

I have mentioned in previous blog posts that my favourite education app is the Camera app. Any app that then talks to the camera app makes it a more powerful and widely used app. One of my favourite examples of this is I Can Animate. It allows pupils or teachers to take a series of photos and then the app plays the photos as a video.

Firstly this can be used to inspire creativity as pupils can make inanimate objects move, such as Lego and plasticine by making subtle movements for each photo. What's nice about this app is it keeps an 'Onion skin' image each time so pupils can see where the previous photo was when lining the camera up.

At school we have used I Can Animate more for science than any other subject as we are able to capture processes. Here are a few ideas:
Take a photo each day of a seed growing and then watch the seed grow as a video. Videos of seeds growing in different conditions can be played side by side using the Split screen feature in iMovie app.
2. Take a photo every 5 minutes of different materials absorbing water. I Can Animate also includes a time lapse feature where it will automatically take photos at intervals predetermined by the user.
3. Using the the time lapse feature, capture a shadow moving across the playground.
4. Put a bird feeder outside the classroom window and record animals visiting. This video can then be used for data handling.
5. Record the weather outside the window. I can animate include a speed tool so you can condense longer videos.

Most of the time we only have one iPad in the classroom so the teacher can share the videos with pupils as a shared resource in Dropbox or Showbie.

Awesome ideas for Science!  Thank you so much!

Check out these great uses of stop motion video for Science classes. I truly enjoy  Stop motion video lessons as it provides  wonderful analytical problem solving situations for students.  When I conduct digital storytelling lessons, students display their critical thinking skills more often for me when using stop motion video, especially when using Legos.

The Netherlands and Los Angeles next. Nevertheless, I believe that a certain balance between technology and actually book using can be beneficial too (depending also on school circumstances).
Ioanna Pastarmatzi's curator insight, August 23, 2013 3:44 AM

What is needed, in my opinion, is a valuable balance between technology and actual book using.

Jacqui Sharp's curator insight, August 23, 2013 6:06 AM

interesting insights, but I still believe that iPads are not the whole answer, there still needs to be the balance of choice of the right tool for the job

Writing for a purpose with the iPad and QR Codes- March 2014 Blog Post

Writing for a purpose with the iPad and QR Codes- March 2014 Blog Post | Ideas for a Classroom with 1 iPad | Scoop.it

Last week during World Book Day, my school had a Dr Seuss themed week. As I teach each class ICT during the one day, I decided to develop pupils awareness of their audience during a short book review activity. I told the pupils that not only would their class teacher be reading their book reviews but the rest of the school and parents would be listening to them. After a few blank faces glared back at me, I explained that their reviews had to be recorded into their iPads and could not be longer than 30 seconds. We used Croak It app to record the reviews (it limits the recordings to 30 seconds) and then shares that recording as a web-link. These links were then put into the QR code creator app, printed and put with the front covers of the books. If you want to record longer than 30 seconds and have images displayed while you listen to them then you could use Shadow Puppets which also creates a web-link or AudioBoo which makes a QR code for you. If you want pupils to attach a GarageBand song to a QR code then you can save the song into something like box.com app using the open in tool and create a web link from there. 
We then displayed the finished front covers around the school, in the weekly newsletter and library.

This is a great activity to try with our elementary.  Our schools do a whole Dr. Suess unit during February's I Love to Read month.  This will be a nice addition.  Thanks for sharing.
