Voicee is a form of instant messaging that uses voice instead of text. This is a really nice simple tool for asynchronous voice communications. Great for recording and sending audio drills to students or building up narrative line by line.

carldowse's curator insight, December 25, 2012 5:04 AM

A nice simple app for asynchronous speaking practice in the classroom and between lessons. Could be used for practising telephone call or meetings

How to connect to and use your iPad as a personal hotspot | iPad Insight

How to connect to and use your iPad as a personal hotspot | iPad Insight | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
There are more and more free Wi-Fi hot spots available to us than ever before.  However, for the most part, coverage is generally spotty and/or intermittent on free public Wi-Fi networks.  In addition, there can be privacy concerns, not to mention overloaded networks that easily become more trouble than they’re worth in the first place.  In situations like these what options do you have if you want to surf the internet on your iPad and you’re away from your fast, secure and reliable home network?  For the sake of argument, we are going to assume that your iPad is a Wi-Fi only version, but the process is the same regardless which iPad you own.

Bridge the Physical-Digital Gap: QR Codes in the Classroom - FRACTUS LEARNING

Bridge the Physical-Digital Gap: QR Codes in the Classroom - FRACTUS LEARNING | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
In a digital world of links, likes, tweets and pins, there are very few mechanisms for connecting our ever expanding digital world with the physical one around us. QR codes are one of the simplest and most well established ways to make this connection, and for students it can create a number of unique and fun learning opportunities, meshing the digital and physical classroom.

In the below presentation, cutting edge educator Denise Webster shares the tools she uses, as well as some real world examples for making the most of QR codes in the classroom.

Guide: Using Apple TV in the Classroom - THAT #EDTECH GUY'S BLOG | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Firstly, despite its name, Apple TV is not a television. Instead it is a device which allows you to wirelessly stream content from your iOS devices or Mac on your TV or projector using AirPlay. AirPlay is Apple’s technology that will stream whatever is on an iOS or Macs screen and is built into all iPads with the exception the first generation iPad, and all newer iPhones and iPod touches. This means you or your students can easily display Keynote presentations, images, videos or content within apps on a large screen at the touch of a button.

Did you know that the Keynote software (Apple's presentation tool) on the Mac has a drawing tool? 

It is a vector based tool that creates clean and customizable shapes that you can fill with color, gradients, or a photo. Then layer, arrange, flip, add shadows and group these shapes until they've become almost anything you can dream of.
