Vimodi - visual discussion app

Vimodi - visual discussion app | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

Vimodi has a unique nonlinear viewer and was designed so that content conforms to the discussion - and not the other way around. Its distinctive feature is that it lets you discuss content non-linearly rather than the linear format of PowerPoint or KeyNote. Perfect for business meetings, sales meetings or teaching where you want to keep the discussion open yet know in advance what the key areas for discussion should be.

Shadow Puppet: Digital Storytelling for iOS Devices

Shadow Puppet: Digital Storytelling for iOS Devices | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

review by Michael Karlin...rated Outstanding


And that's the app!  Yes, it's incredibly simple, but I think that's perfect for this application because it can be used at all ages without much difficulty.  It takes less than 30 seconds to figure out how the application works and it can be integrated in a huge variety of subjects.  

Students can narrate their understanding of virtually any topic and then share those narrations with the class or the teacher.  It's an excellent, easy way to get students talking and sharing what they understand about a particular idea.


My only suggestion would be for them to include a drawing tool (sort of like VoiceThread offers) so that students could add lines or shapes to the images as well.  

Other than that, I love the simplicity, I think it's an excellent app for the classroom, it could be used in all subjects and grade levels, and to top it all off, it's completely free!

Photon Flash Player & browser for iPad app review ~ appPicker

Photon Flash Player & browser for iPad app review ~ appPicker | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

by Rebecca MacLary

 

"Photon Flash Player for iPad, also called Photon Browser, by Appsverse Inc. is a great alternative browser for your iPad. It’s on sale right now, marked down to just $4.99, so get it now and save yourself five dollars.

 

"Photon Browser is a fantastic new browser with Flash capability. It was designed to enhance your experiences on your iPad, and it succeeds. The app is the #1 paid browser in the U.S. App Store and #1 in utilities for the iPad.

 

"Some of the features of Photon Browser include Flash browsing support that lets you use Flash apps, play Flash games, and watch and listen to Flash videos. You can also view websites that previously would not play on the iPad due to Flash content.

You can use multiple views or tabs while browsing, just like in Chrome or Firefox, split your screen to watch a video on one side and browse on the other, or browse using your full screen. You can also do trio mode and picture-in-picture viewing modes.

 

"The browser is full-featured, with private browsing, the ability to share via Facebook or email, an intelligent URL toolbar, and anonymous browsing.  It also offers bookmark support, AirPrint to print off web pages, and forward/back buttons for browsing history.

 

"You must click on the Lightning Bolt icon in order to view Flash sites."

Photon may not be new to some readers, but it is to me. Seems to be the best way to get Flash on an iPad or iPhone.

YouTube Capture- A Practical iPad App for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

YouTube Capture- A Practical iPad App for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

by Med Kharbach

 

"YouTube Capture is definitely a must have iPad app for teachers and students. This app is developed by Google and, unlike the basic YouTube app, YouTube Capture allows users to record videos and upload them instantly and right from their iPad or phones and Instagram.


"Some of the fantastic features that distinguish YouTube Capture from the rest of crowd is the fact that it allows users to make use of YouTube’s stabilization, trimming, and automatic colour correction features – something that other video upload apps don’t. Another perk is the time limit which isn’t just a few seconds. In fact, you can record as long as your typical YouTube video would last, so all you really need to worry about is your Internet speed. Furthermore, you can upload and simultaneously share your videos with nearly all social media services as you go."

5 Little-Known iPad Skills Teachers Should Have - Edudemic

5 Little-Known iPad Skills Teachers Should Have - Edudemic | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

posted by Jeff Dunn

 

"Here’s a quick look at some of the skills you’ll learn in the free online course over at Modern Lessons. It’s a fun little side project I’ve built in an effort to make learning about education technology a bit more organized. Right now, most people stick to Google searches, social media chats, and follow some edtech blogs (like Edudemic!) to stay on top of things. But I thought it was time to go a step further and help teachers, students, parents, and anyone else learn how to effectively use technology to improve their lives. Hopefully this course helps you do just that.

Lecturing with an iPad

Lecturing with an iPad | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

by Perry Samson


"After more than 30 years as a Professor, and despite my obsession with educational technology I still hold a fond spot for overhead projectors.  I believe it was more effective a tool for teaching than projected Powerpoint slides will ever be.  I stood facing the students, watching their expressions, which I could see since the lights were sufficiently bright.  I could draw on the screen and change directions as questions arose.  In fact I will argue that the ‘golden age of college teaching’ if there was one was stimulated by the addition of the roller to the overhead projector.  It allowed the combining of student response, just-in-time teaching, constructivist development and several other educational buzz terms in one simple device.

It’s been downhill ever since,


"…until I discovered I could do everything the overhead could do plus a lot more with my iPad."
