iOS for iPad has dramatically improved multitasking with Spit View dual-pane apps and its counterpart, Slide Over. The Slide Over feature lets you quickly reference, use, and access secondary apps on the iPad without having to enter into full fledged split screen app mode, and without having to switch apps. This feature is great for quickly replying to an email, message, checking Twitter, making a note, or doing quick tasks in another app where you don’t want to lose the primary app focus on an iPad.

The Book Fairy-Goddess: Starting a Makerspace in the Library

The Book Fairy-Goddess: Starting a Makerspace in the Library | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

"I have been using centers in the library for several years now and absolutely love them.  They work really well at giving students choices of activities to do after the lesson and checking out new books.  Now that I have 50-minute library classes as part of the Special's rotation, this has proven to be beneficial.  If you haven't started centers in your own library and you're interested in starting, you can read about my journey here.

      Over the last year, though, I have begun to read more and more about Makerspaces. They intrigued me, and it seemed like a natural progression from what I had been doing with my library centers. So, like most things, I decided to dive head first into trying them in my library this year. 

 

      I started off researching ideas from another amazing librarian in my district, Tracey Rice.  She has been the brave pioneer that tried Makerspaces in her library already and created this great Symbaloo of ideas and resources."

What Colleges Can Gain by Adding Makerspaces to Their Libraries

What Colleges Can Gain by Adding Makerspaces to Their Libraries | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Libraries are one of the fastest-evolving learning spaces. As many resources move online, and teachers require students to collaborate more and demonstrate their learning, librarians are trying to keep up. Some are even spearheading the changes. Public libraries have led the effort to provide access to 21st century technologies and learning resources, but now university and K-12 libraries are beginning to catch up. Makerspaces are one way a few groundbreaking libraries are trying to provide equal access to exciting technologies and skills.

Using LEGO to Build Math Concepts | Scholastic.com | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
I was not one of those LEGO® kids growing up. Sure, my brothers had LEGO bricks, and every so often I’d kidnap some tiny LEGO men for a make-believe game. But I didn’t truly appreciate the engineering capacity of those studded plastic bricks. They were just so rigidly rectangular!
As an adult, I’ve come to appreciate LEGO, both for its rectilinear aesthetic, and even more so, for its mathematical might. In the classroom, the tiny bricks are now my favorite possibility-packed math manipulative! Read on for a sampling of math activities that use LEGO pieces to build and reinforce key math concepts.

Bloom's Taxonomy Verbs - Free Classroom Chart - FRACTUS LEARNING

Bloom's Taxonomy Verbs - Free Classroom Chart - FRACTUS LEARNING | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Over sixty years ago, our dear friend Benjamin Bloom chaired the committee of educators responsible for delivering what we all know today as Bloom’s Taxonomy (a bit rich naming it after himself, but it does have a more catchy ring than Krathwohl‘s Taxonomy). As a key foundation to many modern teaching philosophies, Bloom’s Taxonomy gives a theoretical progression to help classify learning objectives.

While this theoretical model is the backbone for many of our education systems, turning the theory it into real classroom tasks requires a more practical slant on the taxonomy. In an effort to turn a high level taxonomy into meaningful classroom learning experiences a number of educators have translated each definition into a set of actionable Bloom’s Taxonomy verbs. The below chart visualizes each level of the taxonomy, offering verbs that can be used to traverse a wide range of thinking skills and provide hands-on ideas and inspiration for practical classroom activities.
