Nuno Magalhães Ribeiro's curator insight, April 10, 6:38 AM

Os ebooks são um tipo de aplicação multimédia que se impôs nos últimos anos como uma séria alternativa à tecnologia analógica baseada em papel, fruto das muitas vantagens que o suporte digital proporciona para melhorar a experiência da leitura. O Epic Book Guide, descrito neste artigo, é interessante na medida em que ajuda a compreender que apps de leitura de ebooks existem, como as utilizar, para que servem e onde as obter; onde e como descarregar ebooks em vários formatos a partir de sites online; onde encontrar edições gratuitas de livros eletrónicos na Internet e como desenvolver edições de autor em que cada pessoa pode publicar e distribuir um ebook da sua autoria.

“An excellent App that helps children learn their ABC’s and the order of the Alphabet, A4cwsn”

 

This app is a fun and educational activity for children to gain practice identifying the letters of the alphabet and placing them in alphabetical order.

 

The app includes three detailed activities:

 

1. Learn & Review: Place the letters in order and conduct a review of them by touching each letter as the name is heard aloud.

 

2. Practice the Alphabet: Place the letters in order without the control letters as a guide.

 

3. Fill in the Gaps: Cycle through multiple activities of placing the missing letters in place to complete the alphabet.

This app was co-designed and approved by a Montessori teacher with over 40 years experience teaching children! Enjoy this app as an introduction to the Mobile Montessori line of educational apps!

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, November 12, 2013 12:15 PM

This site developed by Moms of Dyslexics provides a set of apps that can support dyslexics and struggling readers. As a Mom of an adult dyslexic, I want to thank these Moms who have created this site for families that have a child with dyslexia.

 

Here are the apps they have reviewed on this site:

> Sound Literacy-$24.99 Sound Literacy can be used in conjunction with any curriculum that emphasizes phonemic awareness, phonological processing, systematic phonetic instruction, or word building with ‘meaningful word parts’.

 

> Dyslexia Quest- $1.99: The Yeti Master will take your child on an adventure while testing working memory, processing speed, visual memory, phonological awareness, auditory memory, and sequencing skills.

 

> Montessori Crosswords-$2.99: Highly rated and based on Montessori learning methods, this app will aid in the development of reading and spelling skills through phonemic awareness.

 

> Spell Trekking-Free:  Your child will learn to spell while trekking through space on the S.S. Spell Trek.

 

> Letter Quiz-Free and Full Version-$1.99: Consists of four games to help your child learn letter recognition and writing practice.

 

> Dyslexic Like Me-$1.99:  The purpose of Dyslexic Like Me is to teach the child what dyslexia is and about successful people who also have dyslexia.

 

> See Read Say-$1.99:  The visual nature of a dyslexic can make learning sight words difficult.

 

> Phonics Genius-Free:  Phonetic awareness is essential to reading and this app takes it to a new level.  The app contains thousands of words grouped into 225 phonic categories.

Ra's curator insight, March 31, 1:14 PM

Looking from a SENCO perspective as a resource that can be used by teachers to get them thinking about using apps for those students with high learning needs. Student voice and autonomy could be increased by having them explore the apps indicated as being useful and give feedback on how and why they think the app would fit with their learning needs.

2013 Edison Award for Innovation Winner (Productivity Category).

Time Timer for iPad is a remarkably easy way to manage time.

The Time Timer for iPad App displays time as a red disk that quietly gets smaller as time elapses. Children as young as three understand that when the red is gone, time is up! And unlike many other visual timers, the Time Timer App has a professional look and packed feature set to help adults make every moment count. Highly recommended by experts in education, healthcare, ADHD, Autism and parenting.

Time Timer – Quick Start
In a hurry? Tap “Quick Start”, touch the number of minutes you need, and press Play! The red disk will count down to 0 and notify you when time is up (even if you’ve left the app). Tap the disk at any time to see a numerical readout of how much time is left.

Play a Timer
1. Select your Timer (up to 4 at a time).
2. Press “Play Timers.” The countdown will start instantly.

Create and Save Timers
When you create a new Time Timer, choose one of three visual modes:
1. Original 60-Minutes Mode: Just like Time Timer products, Minutes mode shows you your time as a portion of 60 minutes, make it easy to see how much time is left.
2. Custom Mode: The Custom Mode Timer can be any amount of time you need – 10 seconds, 10 minutes, 10 hours! Great for interval training.
3. Clock Mode: See what time it will be when your time is up!

Total Flexibility
+ View up to four Timers at once, or tap one Timer to bring it full-screen.
+ Edit one Timer while others keep counting down.
+ Use other apps while your Timer is running. The Time Timer app will notify you when time is up.

Awake Mode
Awake Mode ensures that your iPhone or iPod Touch will not fall asleep while you’re in the Time Timer App. To save battery life, switch Awake Mode Off. On the My Timers page, tap the Settings wheel in the upper-left corner and turn On to Off.

Make Every Moment Count!
Use the Time Timer App in:
+ Business: time your meetings, projects and presentations. Use Clock Mode to see your whole workday!
+ Education: teach a child what “five minutes” looks like. Help older students manage homework & tests without the stress of a numerical countdown.
+ Family: keep the family moving by timing housework, yard work, home work, time-outs and computer/tv time.
+ Healthcare: time your medications and workouts! Comfort a child during a medical procedure by showing how much time is left.
+ Special Needs: discover the profound impact that the Time Timer can have on ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia and diverse special needs.
+ Life: beat the clock! Motivate yourself to keep going until the red disk is gone and time is up!
