How To Quickly Rip A CD Onto Your iPad/iPhone In Ten Minutes Without iTunes

How To Quickly Rip A CD Onto Your iPad/iPhone In Ten Minutes Without iTunes | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

"I used to have a ton of CDs. I spent a fortune back over ten years ago collecting them. Now they are all sitting in boxes in my garage. Literally. I almost NEVER use CDs anymore. I don’t even own a CD player. My MacBook Pro doesn’t have a DVD/CD Drive; only my aging PC can play CDs in my house.

 

The days of the CD are almost over. I purchase all my music digitally.

However, there will be times when you need to rip* a CD to get it on your iDevices. Yes, the traditional way would be to use iTunes and attach your iPad/iPhone to your computer. But what if you’re in a hurry, perhaps at work, without your own computer, and you really would like a digital copy without the hassle of iTunes?"

"FaceTime is Apple's video chat service. It allows anyone with a recent iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, or Mac to make free calls to any other Apple user over Wi-Fi or cellular connection. On the iPhone, FaceTime is bundled into the Phone app. On the iPod touch, iPad, and Mac, FaceTime is a separate app. On all devices, FaceTime can connect to any Apple-registered iPhone phone number or email address. That makes it perfect for keeping in touch with family who lives far away, with the kids while traveling, with business partners at distant offices, or even with that special someone while shopping for the perfect gift."

iPad in Education For Dummies is now shipping from Amazon for $13.65. I might be a little biased as some of my iLessons were included in the resource... BUT I think it is a very thorough and useful purchase.

A little more info...

1. It's a book for all levels: The book is a part of the very popular "for Dummies" series of books - hence the title. The book is however written for anyone interested in the use of iPads for educational purposes - whether beginner or advanced, teacher or parent, administrator or in-class educator.

2. It's primarily about education: The book really should have been titled, "Education using iPads" rather than "iPads in Education". Most Dummies books tend to be how-to manuals but this is primarily a book about education and focuses on the use and integration of iPads into 21st century learning initiatives. Yes, you will learn how to use iPads but it will be within the context of educational goals and objectives that prepare our students for life in the modern world.

Julie Bilz's curator insight, July 3, 2013 8:30 AM

Want to use an IPAD in your classroom, but not sure how? I love these series of books!

Apple TV In The Classroom: 4 Reasons To Try It Out - Edudemic

Apple TV In The Classroom: 4 Reasons To Try It Out - Edudemic | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

"f you like to use your iPhone, iPad or laptop in your classroom because it allows you to effortlessly navigate the learning space, one of the greatest frustrations can be having to constrain yourself to the vicinity of the projector cable every time you want to share your screen with the class.

 

 

I have seen this as a common practice even in open plan learning environments, which instantly does away with it’s greatest feature by forcing the teacher to move back to the front of the room.

 

 

Whilst you can get wireless projectors at great expense, have you ever thought of using Apple’s $99 Apple TV? I hadn’t until recently, but since using it I could never go back to a physical projector/tv connection for the following 4 reasons:
