Cedar Creek Middle School makes math fun

Cedar Creek Middle School makes math fun | ipad apps education | Scoop.it

With the opening lines to their song, Cedar Creek Middle School eighth-graders Grace Becknal, Isabel Arevalo, Ariana Alvarado and Jorge Meza explained how to find the rate of a change — or the slope — of a line.

 The quartet in Sabrina Cordova’s Algebra I class created the lyrics — set to the tune of the Miley Cyrus song “Party in the USA,” which they retitled “Party on the Coordinate Plane” —for the class project in which the students were asked to work in groups to produce their own music video explaining an algebra concept.

 

Cordova first assigned the project during the 2011-12 school year, kicking it off with her “Slope Formula Style” take on Psy’s “Gangnam Style,” to show the students what was possible.

Educational Technology Guy: Two great teacher blogs showing uses of Evernote as teachers

Educational Technology Guy: Two great teacher blogs showing uses of Evernote as teachers | ipad apps education | Scoop.it

I'm a power Evernote user and have documented a lot of ways to use Evernote in education over the years.

I recently found two blogs from educators that show how they use Evernote as teachers and offer some great ideas and tips for other educators.



Jordan Collier has a great blog with a whole section on Evernote. He is on #8 of 50 planned posts with different ways school administrators and educators can use Evernote to be more organized and more effective. There are some great ideas here.



The Not Another History Teacher blog, also has some great posts and tips for using Evernote in the classroom. Justin Stallings, another Evernote power user like me, is guest posting these articles.

Evernote is a great resource for education, and is free. If you haven't tried Evernote out yet, create a free account and read some of the posts on my blog and the two a

A Great Presentation On The Use of iPad for Digital Storytelling ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Great Presentation On The Use of iPad for Digital Storytelling ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | ipad apps education | Scoop.it

"The presentation below is created by Karen Bosh who is a K - 8 Technology Instructor. Karen provided some key ideas and app suggestions for teachers on how to use iPad for digital storytelling. Some of the apps she suggested are not free. She has also corroborated her ideas with a set of students  project examples involving the use of iPad for digital storytelling. The presentation is a little bit long ( contains 129 slides) but is really worth your time. Have a look and share with your colleagues."

"Slice It! is a sneakily simple and completely engaging way of teaching users of all ages to visualize geometric figures. The goal of Slice It! is really quite simple: cut the provided shape into whatever number of pieces the level asks for, with just the number of lines the level offers you. Oh, and just to keep it interesting: make all of the pieces EQUAL."

Swipe Between Open Apps Faster at the iOS Multitasking Screen - OSXDaily

Swipe Between Open Apps Faster at the iOS Multitasking Screen - OSXDaily | ipad apps education | Scoop.it

"Most iPhone and iPad users know the iOS multitasking screen is where you can quit the apps you no longer want open, and it’s also where you go to switch between any of the open apps on the device. But if you have a lot of apps open, you may notice that switching from the frontmost app card to one of the last is not exactly expedient, at least not until you use this fancy alternate swipe tip. The trick is to change the location of where you swipe at the multitasker, from the app panels to the app icons:"

I Scooped this from "iTeach with Technology" blog. Karen Ogen is the author there, but she got it from David Kapuler's blog, "Technology Tidbits."  CreatorVerse looks like a niche which hadn't been filled. Physics and Art! Linden Labs develops games, but has stepped out with more collaborative "gaming."
