Learning with Meaning: Storytime with StoryKit

Learning with Meaning: Storytime with StoryKit | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Sometimes the simplest apps can make the most powerful lessons.

A few weeks ago, I was brainstorming a lesson with a 7th grade Life Science teacher at my school. She had a unit on symbiosis coming up and she wanted to assess the students in a new way. We bounced around a lot of ideas: green screens, music videos, cartooning sites but what we landed on was StoryKit. StoryKit is a free app from the folks at the International Children's Digital Library (which is a great resource in itself if you aren't already familiar with it!).

In fact, an increasing number of educators are already using Flipboard Magazines in their classroom to enhance teaching and learning. How are they doing that? Check out the Flipboard Education blog for a collection of great stories and ideas that come directly from classroom teachers.

Apple introduces a new News app in iOS 9; will it replace your favorite RSS reader? | iPad Insight

Apple introduces a new News app in iOS 9; will it replace your favorite RSS reader? | iPad Insight | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
At the World Wide Developer Conference last week, Apple introduced their all new RSS reader app called News.  In all honesty, I see it as a good move on their part–it makes sense.  By offering a free news aggregator that automatically is included in iOS 9, iPad owners are much less likely to go outside the Apple ecosystem in search of a an alternative.  This move to provide a more comprehensive, all encompassing experience on iOS will be a good hook for new iPad and iPhone users.  However, after talking with some current users, many of them were not as impressed.

Will the News app be a viable alternative to much more established and successful RSS readers like Feedly and Flipboard?  Yes, and no.  Traditional RSS reader advocates will likely stay with their current choices.  However, new iPad users looking for a way to consume content more easily, and all in one place will likely find News to be the first and perhaps their last choice since it will be pre-installed on their device.  Never underestimate the power of convenience.

Free Technology for Teachers: iRead a Book ... Now What? - Book Posters, Book Trailers, and More | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

"My social media bios declare “I like kids. I like books. I like tech. What else could I be but a school librarian?” That pretty much sums it up right there. 

Now, I do want to make one thing clear. I do not believe every book needs a “project.” READ MORE BOOKS. That’s what will encourage a love of reading (and the literacy skills will come). That said there are times when added tech IS fun and helpful to instruction. We had 6 iPads last year but this December were lucky enough to get a cart of 25! Of course we wanted to use them."
