Top Five iPad Apps for Teaching Across All Content Areas

Top Five iPad Apps for Teaching Across All Content Areas | Instructional Technology Tools | Scoop.it

"Ever since I was a kid, I loathed back to school commercials. They always showed parents gleefully skipping through aisles of pencils and notebooks as the kids, sullen and dejected, sluggishly followed along. It's a scene we are all too familiar with, and one that creates a negative stigma around school. But what if that scene were flipped? What if the kids were happy and eager to get to school? Is that possible after roughly 90 days of sun and fun? It is, and at Burlington Public Schools, we have seen it over the past two years during our iPad launches at the high school and middle school."

Narrable enables users to create short narrated slideshows. Start by uploading the pictures that you want to talk about. You can then record a narration for each picture via your computer's microphone or by uploading an audio recording that is stored on your computer. Narrable projects can be shared via email, Facebook, or by embedding them into a blog or wiki.

Using Google Hangouts for Teacher Development | Instructional Technology Tools | Scoop.it

" Our children live so far away that it was a no brainer to use Google Hangouts to video chat with all of them at the same time. It was quick, easy to connect, and it was a lot of fun. While I do not suggest that teachers spend too much time putting wigs and mustaches on each other during video chats, Google Hangouts is a perfect tool to increase the level of communication and professional development in every school."

Peter Bryant's curator insight, February 18, 2013 3:16 AM

In some ways, I would argue that we don't need to teach it, we need to harness and repurpose the critical skills learners already have.  just my 2 cents worth

Ana Cristina Pratas's comment, February 19, 2013 2:17 PM
I tend to agree with you Peter; it is fostering and instigating rather than "teaching". I usually tell students that they are critical thinkers but now need to focus that skill to their learning subjects.
