Why & How to Green Screen in class - IPAD 4 SCHOOLS

Why & How to Green Screen in class - IPAD 4 SCHOOLS | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

"Finding interesting ways to evaluate, reflect and report on work and projects can be tricky. Many students struggle to engage with the reflection properly as it is often a dry, unentertaining end to any unit or project. But that’s where the Green Screen App can help. (How-to help sheet below)

 

Remember:


People don’t learn from experience.
People learn when reflecting on experience.
People learn more when they can witness their own reflection."

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.

How To Writing: App Smashing With A Publishing Menu - Zig Zag Tech | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
After our collaborative How To writing project, everyone was quick to get started on their own “expert” stories. Making lists of things we’re experts at helps generate ideas, then the stories start to flow!



We’ve published our writing several different ways this year, so I offered an idea menu of apps to publish with to my class. This is by no means a comprehensive list of tools. I just wanted to provide them a jumping off point to get started when they were ready to publish. Please feel free to download the menu here.

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!).

How to Use Flipboard Magazines in the Classroom - GRANTWOOD AEA | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Are you a Flipboard user? If not, you're missing out, because it is fast becoming an important part of an educator's PLN. If you've never tried it before, Flipboard is a popular news discovery app that works on iPhones, iPads, Androids, Windows, Windows Phones, and the web. It learns what you like and gives you a one-stop shop to check Facebook, Twitter, Google+, your favorite blogs, and more.

At Grant Wood AEA, the Digital Learning team have begin curating some of our favorite articles from around the web and we have been storing them all in Flipboard magazines. A magazine is a collection of websites, articles, photos, videos, and blog posts from around the web. Anyone can start a magazine, and lots of people do. 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.
