It's not always easy to prepare a professional presentation, but one of the most tried-and-true methods is to use Microsoft PowerPoint. PowerPoint is almost a necessity in modern presentations, so you can't go wrong with it -- but you can do it wrongly, and one huge mistake is neglecting the aesthetics. Sure, most of your…
PicCollage is one of my favorite apps for creating multimedia collages on my iPad. Creating those collages is a great way to visually summarize a trip, to tell a story, or showcase the highlights of research. I’ve shown PicCollage to hundreds of teachers over the last couple of years. The only complaint I’ve heard about it is that there is a public gallery of collages. I just discovered this morning that PicCollage for Kids removes that gallery. PicCollage for Kids also removes all social media connections to the app. Students do not need to create accounts in order to use PicCollage for Kids.

Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday. Check out all out picks below and you’ll soon have a collection of stellar apps for your favorite tablet.
This week’s pick is Flickr. A classic iPad app that recently went through a major update. With Flickr you can upload, access, organize, edit, and share your photos from any device, from anywhere in the world. Flickr has always had a special place in my heart as I initially used it to share all of our baby photos with family members when our first son was born over 12 years ago. Since then, there have been so many other resources available to store your photos, especially in the cloud, that I haven’t used it in years–that was until the recent version 4.0 update caught my eye. The newest update brings with it a welcomed addition of features to an already powerful app.
While it’s true that iOS started out as a relatively basic operating system for the iPhone and iPod touch, the software and its list of features have grown and matured over the years. Nowadays iOS is feature rich, so much so that we’re willing to bet that there are quite a few things hidden within iOS that lots of people don’t know even exist.
With that in mind we set about putting together a list of features and tools within iOS that we didn’t think everyone would know existed. Initially, we kicked the idea off with a handful of items for our list, but eventually it grew into a list of no fewer than 25 tips and features that we hope will surprise at least some of you, ranging from hidden Siri commands to special Emoji.
"I recently received this request for managing storage on an iPad:
"Hello I hope you can help me! I deleted a video to free up storage space on my ipad, but even though the video is gone, my storage is still full! The video was very large, so I thought this would free up space. Do I have to do something more to fully delete the video and reclaim the storage space it had used?"
iOS 8 added a new album in the Photos app called Recently Deleted. The purpose of this album is to offer you a way to easily recover deleted photos. Photos and videos are held here for 30 days, then permanently deleted. You’ll see the number of days remaining for each item. This tells you when each photo or video will be permanently deleted."

"These days, very little comes out of Hollywood without special effects added in post-production. Our favorite superhero movies, science fiction thrillers and fast-paced action movies just wouldn't be the same without them. However, these video effects are no longer the preserve of video professionals. Technology has advanced quickly, and you can now replicate these very same effects to make photos and videos come to life on your iPad. Here's how."
Everybody likes plenty of screens when working or browsing the Internet. It seems to be a geek’s rite of passage to brag about how many monitor screens they have (“you only have two?!”). But now those of you who own an iPad can use a simple app to expand your collection of screens, turning your $500 tablet into a small, portable monitor. It’s called Duet.
Not all teachers want to embrace the new technology available to them. e-learning coordinator Rachel Jones teams up with teacher and National Space Centre lead educator Daniel Harvey to discuss how digital passion can be spread.
"You’re probably already familiar with Skype; the free service for calls and chat has become ubiquitous in recent years. It’s revolutionized how people around the world communicate with each other.
