This would be enthusiastically received by students, know doubt, who could then extend their visual literacy as well.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, January 19, 2013 3:34 PM

Here's a simple way to create some eye catching graphics.  Taks a bit to get the size of the photo and the size of the bubble to actually work.

15 iPad Skills Every Teacher and Student should Have - Apps linked to your learning goals

15 iPad Skills Every Teacher and Student should Have - Apps linked to your learning goals | inspiring | Scoop.it

By Med Kharbach

 

"iPad has made such a radical change in education with more and more school districts  adopting it as a learning tool inside the classroom. Educational Technology and Mobile Learning  has been helping teachers all along the way with reviews and tutorials on how to get started using iPad in education. We have reviewed more than 500 apps and we are planning to do more reviews this year.

"Having accumulated a modest experience in dealing with educational iPad apps, we deem it important that we share with you some of the learning goals you should keep in mind when using iPad with your students. We have particularly associated sets of educational iPad apps with each learning goal to make it easier for you to achieve the targeted goal.

"Check the learning goals below and share with us your feedback. Enjoy"
