5 Free Online Courses For Tech-Savvy Teachers - Edudemic

5 Free Online Courses For Tech-Savvy Teachers - Edudemic | Innovative Instruction with iPads | Scoop.it

"If you’ve got an iPad and aren’t sure what to do with it or where it fits into your classroom, you could probably use a hand. That’s the basis of Edudemic and the larger edtech world after all. In an effort to help you out even more, a few friends and I built an online skill-building platform that’s meant to help teachers and anyone else. It’s called Modern Lessons http://modernlessons.com/ and has a ton of free online courses from learning the basics of Twitter to an advanced course on iPads in education."

3 Apps To Create Basic eBooks On An iPad

3 Apps To Create Basic eBooks On An iPad | Innovative Instruction with iPads | Scoop.it

"

While the production of book is most natural–for now anyway–on a desktop, tablets like the iPad are improving in capacity here, and the three apps below are excellent examples of that.

 

While more premium software like Adobe InDesign and Apple iBooks Author are your best bet for sublime eProduct, for a quick project–where more of the time is spent planning and executing instead of learning software–the iPad can work a treat. All three tend towards elementary application, likely because basic images and simple typesetting options."

"Modern technology has definitely helped with the way teachers and students can interact. The Internet has made it possible for students to earn a college degree through online instruction. The latest technology in the past three years, the iPad, has virtually changed the face of education. The Apple App store alone has thousands upon thousands of apps designed for education, making it easy for students as well as teachers to find material and content for any area or level of learning. The iPad provides a more diverse method of instruction and helps to engage students ranging from kindergarten to college."
