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."

6 Good iPad Apps to Turn Pictures Into Cartoons and Comics ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

6 Good iPad Apps to Turn Pictures Into Cartoons and Comics ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
I spent sometime this weekend curating and working on the list of iPad apps below. These are apps that students can use to create beautiful cartoons to use in their multimedia projects or in activities that involve comic strips, digital storytelling, presentations and many more. All of these apps are easy to use and do not require any advanced technical skill. Some of the things students can do with these apps include: take pictures and turn them into cartoons, capture cartoon videos, draw cartoon sketches, customize and add different effects to pictures, convert photos into cartoon avatars, and many more.
