Interesting insight into how iPads are being used in schools and the impact they are making both positive and negative. I challenge teachers to look at this article and identify all the different teaching and learning ideas there are and how they could apply or adapt them in their classrooms.

7 Great iPad Apps to Promote Visual Thinking ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

7 Great iPad Apps to Promote Visual Thinking ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iLearn, iPad in Education | Scoop.it

Today while I was looking for a citation from " Making Thinking Visible: How to Promote Engagement, Understanding, and Independence for All Learners " http://ow.ly/k2SpU ; , it dawned on me to compile a list of the  popular iPad apps that promote visual thinking. Making Thinking Visible is by all means a must read for those of you interested in knowing how thinking can be made visible at any grade level and across all subject areas through the use of effective questioning, listening, documentation, and facilitative structures called thinking routines. Another book I have in my shelf and which is more or less similar to the one cited above is " Blah Blah Blah: What To Do When Words Don't Work " http://ow.ly/k2Svy ; in which Dan walks his readers through the different practices of making thinking vivid with less words."

There are many choices for iPads as well as Android tablets. Some include plugins that you can pay to add. Some of the more complex apps include the ability to paste in photographs or other images. While there are even note taker apps that include the function for adding audio -- whether from a meeting speaker or from yourself explaining the ideas you are capturing.

 

One thing to consider when using these applications is whether or not you need a better suited stylus. There are a variety now that are more responsive, thinner, use BlueTooth for greater control.

The iPad as a Tool for Creation to Strengthen Learning

The iPad as a Tool for Creation to Strengthen Learning | iLearn, iPad in Education | Scoop.it

Richard Jones's curator insight, July 24, 2013 1:43 PM

The iPad has often been dismissed as a tool for consumption and not creation.  I think this is a bit of a myth developed around thinking about learning as purely literary and overly concerned with file transfer issues and other "old school" activities.

 

Having said that it is a pity vendors have gone the proprietory route on storage!

Cool - can't underestimate the need for "101" type guides for educators.

Stefan Gisler's comment, October 23, 2013 12:46 PM
Apple TV is great. Unfortunately there's only a optical audio output so I have to use analog - digital audio converter to connecting to a PA or Hi-Fi. Airport Express looks like a nice solution for this but it is very unstable and has a big latency. So the only solution for me at moment is WHDI (wireless HDMI-Connection to the beamer).
