Helpful collection of educational apps organized by grade levels and categories

Karen E Smith's curator insight, October 25, 2014 8:57 AM

Every teacher should create a list of apps that work/don't work for their teaching purposes.

J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, October 25, 2014 10:28 AM

I really appreciate the early childhood apps. I'm gonna recommend them to my students' parents

How to Use Your iPad as a Second Computer Display

How to Use Your iPad as a Second Computer Display | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
u may already know that using a second display for your computer can improve your productivity. For various jobs and tasks, a dual display can help reduce errors when copying and pasting, allow you to multitask using various applications at once, and in general, give you more digital workspace.

Some people have a separate monitor connected to their computer. But, if you own an iPad, you can use it as your second display with a just few simple steps.


First Things First

First, you need an app for both your computer and iPad. There are several great options available on the App Store such as Duet Display, Air Display 3, and GoodDual Display. For this how-to instruction, we are using Duet Display. The app offers an easy setup, touch screen control, optional retina display, and a secure wired connection. If you are interested in a wireless option instead, Air Display 3 would be a good alternative.

Although we will go through the setup process using a Mac, Duet Display also works with Windows computers. Simply visit the Duet Display website to download the app for your platform. Once you have the app installed on both your computer and iPad, the setup process is easy.

Lloyd's Video Analysis Tool

Lloyd's Video Analysis Tool | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Lloyd Rieber has generously made his video analysis tool available for educator and students. In his words, "Although not as powerful as other published video analysis tools you might find, I think the tool I've created is very simple to use. And, I think this tool is actually a good choice for any faculty or doctoral students who want to do some initial analysis of any videos they recorded as part of research (e.g. classroom student interactions). It also includes a transcription tool to facilitate the typing of transcripts of any narration in the video. Personally, I've found it very useful in tagging and commenting some home movies for family members. I think there lots of other uses as well." Having participated in the beta test, I fully concur with, and support this initiative. Thank you Dr. Rieber!

Practical Ed Tech Handbook - Updated for 2016-17 :: by Richard Byrne

Practical Ed Tech Handbook - Updated for 2016-17 :: by Richard Byrne | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

"Last year I published a 30 page document that I called The Practical Ed Tech Handbook. This week I spent some time revising that document and updating it the 2016-17 school year. The Practical Ed Tech Handbook isn't just a list of my favorite resources. I've included ideas for using these resources and in many cases I've included links to video tutorials about my favorite resources.

"In The Practical Ed Tech Handbook you will find resources arranged in seven categories; communication with students & parents, web search strategies, digital citizenship, video creation, audio production, backchannels & informal assessment, and digital portfolios.

Jim Lerman's insight:

A truly outstanding resource for educators of all subjects and grades, K-20. Chock full of strategies, techniques, and applications. You are certain to find something new, creative, and exciting here, no matter whether you are an expert or a beginner. It is just amazing that Byrne gives this away at no cost. With just this one resource, you could easily become the most popular techie educator in your institution.

A Visual Introduction to Machine Learning

A Visual Introduction to Machine Learning | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

via The Scout Report

 

"Machine learning, when "computers apply statistical learning techniques to automatically identify patterns in data," is becoming a bigger part of the everyday life of most Americans in ways that are both embraced and debated. For example, websites like Facebook use machine learning for facial recognition, while banks use machine learning to monitor credit card fraud. Still, it can be difficult to grasp exactly how this component of artificial intelligence actually works. This interactive website, authored by Stephanie Yee and Tony Chu, uses R2D3 - a data visualization tool created by Yee and Chu themselves - to help the general public better understand machine learning. Using vivid visualizizations and a concrete example (How would a machine determine if a home was in New York City or San Francisco?), this resource clearly explains the key vocabulary and concepts behind machine learning in an accessible, engaging way."

Politics and Pathogens

Politics and Pathogens | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

via The Scout Report

 

"The American Museum of Natural History has compiled this collection of twelve two hour-long lesson plans that are designed to provide students with a humanistic perspective on health care and disease. In addition to detailed lesson plans, readers will find ready-made PowerPoint presentations and links to related resources, such as articles and videos. Although these lessons are designed to be completed as a series, they also contain activities that can be completed in shorter time periods or as stand-alone lessons. Sessions facilitate student learning by using a number of compelling central questions, including "How does oppression make the experience of disease and illness different in different cultural contexts?" and "What is the relationship between humans and the microbes that cause disease?" In all, this Curriculum Collection contains lessons and resources that may be of interest to science, social studies, and health educators alike."
