The (3) best ways to share information from your iPad

The (3) best ways to share information from your iPad | Education Technology | Scoop.it
With iOS 8, Apple expanded the iPad’s ability to share information in many different ways.  This has long been a frequently requested feature that was already available on various other mobile platforms in one form or another.  Sharing information and data, in any form, can be a very useful tool for all iPad owners.  I want to discuss three of the best ways iPad users can share information, and the processes they can use to make this possible.

A Collection Of Beautiful Educational Sketchnotes for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Collection Of Beautiful Educational Sketchnotes for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Education Technology | Scoop.it
A few weeks ago, I shared here a list of some powerful iPad apps for sketchnoting (visual note taking) and I argued that sketchnoting has several cognitive pluses (e.g easy memory recall, quick processing of data, enhanced concentration, to mention but a few). I have recently bought a stylus and started experimenting with this new form of taking notes. My sketches are not the best but the more I practice the better they become. One of the things I learned from the different video tutorials I watched in this regard is that as a beginner sketchnoter you need to build a rich visual vocabulary that will facilitate your visual representations and to do this you need to have access to works of expert sketchnoters. Observing how they use shapes, colours, graphic organizers, text...etc will definitely help you learn how to create your own sketchnotes. One of the people I would recommend for anyone starting to learn sketchnoting is Langwitches.

These Gorgeous iPad Notes Could Lead to the Paperless Classroom | THE Journal

These Gorgeous iPad Notes Could Lead to the Paperless Classroom | THE Journal | Education Technology | Scoop.it

Vancouver teacher Brad Ovenell-Carter has been doodling notes in Moleskine notebooks at conferences for a while, causing heads to turn. People used to ask him for copies and he would snap a photo and send it to them.

 

When the iPad came along, Ovenell-Carter migrated his "sketch-notes" to his tablet, using a stylus to draw into an App called Paper (he preferred its simplicity to higher-end tools for graphic designers). That’s when he became an exemplar for the growing sub-culture of paperless learners, doodlers, iPad-only learners, live-scribers or — his personal favorite — "sketch-noters." Their craft raises new questions about the future of learning and even communication. 

 

In March of 2012, Ovenell-Carter was at an education conference doodling on his iPad and someone next to him suggested he Tweet out the notes. "So I did," he said. "I decided I would tweet them out and if they make sense to you, great. If they don’t, no sweat. They are just my notes." His Pinterest page and Twitter feed have ramped up with enthusiastic followers.

 

Sketch-noters have their own club called Sketchnote Army, led by Milwaukee-based designer Mike Rohde. He’s been championing sketch-notes since 2003, authoring The Sketchnote Handbook. His Sketchnote Army site profiles sketches from the growing community that includes more than 1,300 Twitter followers. Another practitioner, Rachel Smith, gave a popular TEDx talk about "Drawing in Class" that explored the potential for taking visual notes, a hobby-turned-profession for her, which she calls "graphic recording." She argues that visual note taking only requires listening for relevant points to jot down and doesn’t require immense artistic ability.

Integrated activities for grades K-5 from my classes at @MarymountNYC's #STEAM camp. #edtech #MakerEd | Education Technology | Scoop.it
From June 22 – July 24, I led technology projects at Marymount’s Summer STEAM Camp in the awesome FabLab Makerspace at their 5th Avenue campus. It was quite an experience to gather, develop, and run projects for campers with varying skill sets in grades K-5 for five weeks. Also, each grade level had a different and unique theme almost every week, and I challenged myself to plan integrated projects that correlated with their themes.

Sketchnotes 101: The Basics of Visual Note-taking | Education Technology | Scoop.it

So you say you're ready to start sketchnoting.

Maybe you're not much of a sketcher but you take a lot of notes, and are interested in making them more meaningful and interesting, but you're afraid your drawings are too crude. For you, it's important to stress that sketchnotes—although they are inherently a visual medium—do not require drawing ability of any kind. Essentially they're about transforming ideas into visual communication; structuring thoughts and giving hierarchy to concepts can be completed with strictly text and a few lines.

Tablet Apps to Engage Students with ELA Skills | Education Technology | Scoop.it
Engaging students in lessons on sentence structure, parts of speech, and punctuation can be a challenge.  MadLibs is not a new product, however their iPad app makes story creation and English Language Arts instruction exciting for students.  Perfect for stations, partner work or a transition activity, MadLibs asks students to plug in different parts of speech to create a story.  It’s a great springboard for conversations on sentence structure and introducing students to adverbs, adjectives, and more.

"Language learning has to be met with engaging and entertaining lesson objectives that include innovative approaches from the teacher. The iPad can be the perfect tool to employ when trying to achieve this high standard. Combining apps to enhance lingual learning can really bring multi-media MFL magic into the classroom. Smashing all sorts of language apps into the Book Creator app is just one way of doing this! I plan to create a ‘School Talk’ language book that translates key school resources and aspects of day-to-day education into French."

5 Critical Mistakes Schools Make With iPads (And How To Correct Them) | Edudemic

5 Critical Mistakes Schools Make With iPads (And How To Correct Them) | Edudemic | Education Technology | Scoop.it

Focusing on iPad-versus.-laptop comparisons stifles the ability to see how the iPad facilitates student-centered learning. iPads are devices meant to compliment computers, not replace them.

So, people who seek equivalent functionality become frustrated, and fail to realize the intrinsic benefits and features of the iPad’s native design.

 

Instead, schools should focus their energies on what iPads do best to engender active learning. iPads enable students to kinesthetically connect with their work (especially important for young learners). These tactile elements – using fingers to zoom, rotate in, pinch close, or swipe across – as well as increasingly interactive and immersive apps, facilitate hands-on learning.
