The Techie Teacher: 10 Things Siri Can Do for Teachers & Students

The Techie Teacher: 10 Things Siri Can Do for Teachers & Students | iOS in Education | Scoop.it
Siri can flip a coin or roll a die! The die can have any number of sides you like: 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 20... This could come in handy when students need a quick way to decide who is going first, speak, etc.

I especially liked the random number/flip a coin trick!

Stop panicking! Here's why Apple and the iPhone are far from doomed | ZDNet | iOS in Education | Scoop.it
While there's no doubt that Apple is going to face increased challenges over the coming years, rumors of a coming "iPhone apocalypse" are greatly exaggerated. If anything, the constant pressure that Android device makers put on price puts Android at greater threat.

The difference between Apple and Samsung industrial design

The difference between Apple and Samsung industrial design | iOS in Education | Scoop.it
"Paint the back of the fence", has been referenced time and again, "because you'll know." It's a quote from the late Steve Jobs' father intended to help instill pride in craft. Jony Ive, Apple's senior vice president of design, has spoken numerous times about the importance and inevitability of great design as well, about the care and consideration it takes, and how people notice it...
Gordon Shupe's insight:

Embedded in what I want to teach my students: Review what is out there, create, design, review your design, edit, improve, have others review it, consider their perspective, make final edits, release. Strive for excellence, design intentionally.

Kids Speak Out on Student Engagement ~ Edutopia ~ by Heather Wolpert-Gawron

Kids Speak Out on Student Engagement ~ Edutopia ~ by Heather Wolpert-Gawron | iOS in Education | Scoop.it
A while back, I was asked, "What engages students?" Sure, I could respond, sharing anecdotes about what I believed to be engaging, but I thought it would be so much better to lob that question to my own eighth graders. The responses I received from all 220 of them seemed to fall under 10 categories, representing reoccurring themes that appeared again and again. So, from the mouths of babes, here are my students' answers to the question: "What engages students?"

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

Excellent observations for we educators, from our students, about how to engage them in their own learning. Most of this article is direct quotes from 8th graders.

As the son of an early space engineer, and lifelong resident of Central Brevard County, I continue to be proud of growing up "in the shadow of rockets". My father's last job was with Jet Propulsion Labs of Cal Tech working on the Mariner Mars mission, and today I am thrilled to see my brother-in-law guiding crew module for the next mission to Mars.

iWork vs Microsoft Office vs Google Docs: Which iPad and iPhone office suite is best?

iWork vs Microsoft Office vs Google Docs: Which iPad and iPhone office suite is best? | iOS in Education | Scoop.it
iPhone and iPad owners have an amazing problem — iOS is the only platform with all major office suites. The good news is: we get to choose between Apple iWork (Pages, Numbers, and Keynote), Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint), and Google Docs (Docs, Sheets, and Slides). The bad news is: we have to choose between Apple iWork, Microsoft Office, and Google Docs. And it can be a tough choice! iWork is great for consumers. Microsoft Office is the enterprise standard. Google Docs is increasingly everywhere. So, which one is best? We put them to the test so you can find out!
