Weebly for iPad - Create and Manage Websites - iPad Apps for Schools | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

 - iPad Apps for Schools"Weebly, a popular website creation service, has offered an iPhone app for a couple of years. This morning I learned that they now offer a free iPad app too. Weebly’s free iPad app allows you to create a new website from scratch. After creating your website with the app you will be able to manage nearly all aspects of your site from your iPad. The drag-and-drop website building process that made Weebly popular as a browser-based tool is found in the new iPad app. Select a site component from the menu of options and drag it into the editor to build your site one component at a time. Watch the video embedded below for a short overview of Weebly’s free iPad app."

Turn iPad Art into Joyous 3D Figures with the Foldify App

Turn iPad Art into Joyous 3D Figures with the Foldify App | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

"It’s a beautiful thing when students can use digital tools to build real world creations. While 3D printing is still a little on the expensive side, the Foldify app does an amazing job allowing students to create their own three dimensional paper masterpieces. Using the app, students can choose different paper templates, paint them digitally, model them in 3D, then print for assembly in the real world. It really is a delightfully fun, creative and rewarding experience."

Wow!  Shadow Puppet Is A Great iPhone & iPad App For English Language Learners - Larry Ferlazzo's Website of the Day | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

"I learned about the free Shadow Puppet Edu (what appears to be a premium version of the more commercial Shadow Puppet app) through an article in this month’s ASCD Educational Leadership, and am very, very impressed.

 

It has a bunch of bells and whistles that I haven’t even explored yet but, at its core, it’s an iPhone/iPad app that lets you pick photos and super-easily (and I do mean easily) lets you add audio narration to each photo and create a slideshow."

Showbie makes it easy to assign, collect and review student work in iPad classrooms.

 

Showbie is an app that makes the paperless classroom a reality, making it easy for teachers to assign, collect and review student work in tablet classrooms. Nothing says paperless classroom better than an ebook - and so Showbie have teamed up with the developers of the best-selling Book Creator app to create a more seamless workflow between the two apps.

500 Prompts for Narrative and Personal Writing

500 Prompts for Narrative and Personal Writing | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

"Every school day since 2009 we’ve asked students a question based on an article in the New York Times. Five years later, here are 500 of them that invite narrative and personal writing, all together in one place. Consider it a companion to the list of 200 argumentative writing prompts we posted earlier this year. 

 

The categorized list below touches on everything from sports to travel, education, gender roles, video games, fashion, family, pop culture and more, and, like all our Student Opinion questions, each links to a related Times article and includes a series of follow-up questions. What’s more, all these questions are still open for comment by any student 13 or older. 

 

So dive into this admittedly overwhelming list and pick the questions that most inspire you to tell an interesting story, describe a memorable event, observe the details in your world, imagine a possibility, or reflect on who you are and what you believe."

15 Great Audiobooks for Helping Kids Read Better ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

15 Great Audiobooks for Helping Kids Read Better ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
The puzzling question that is often posed when talking about audiobooks' integration in the teaching and learning of literacy is whether they have the same cognitive benefits as the actual reading. In other words , can listening to audiobooks be considered reading? Well, the answer does require a rigorous scientific study; however, what is certain here is that listening to audiobooks and reading both require serious engagement with the content for deep and critical understanding to take place
