Resources for Using iPads in Grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 by Monica Burns - Edutopia

Resources for Using iPads in Grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 by Monica Burns - Edutopia | iPad | Scoop.it

Edutopia is one of my favourite web sites. It has recently run a series written by Monica Burns aka @ClassTechTips featuring Resources for Using iPads across multiple grade levels. Though I've featured them each individually here on iPads in Education I thought it might be useful to post all of the series in one collection.

Awesome! Thanks Edutopia!

Applying iPad Game Creation to the Primary Curriculum- January 2014 Blog Post

Applying iPad Game Creation to the Primary Curriculum- January 2014 Blog Post | iPad | Scoop.it

Happy New Year to all. In my first blog post of 2014 I thought I would focus on game creation and programming as that seems to be the hot topic at the moment. At school I have introduced a number of programming elements across all year groups over the last few years. This has included Scratch but also newer apps such Hopscotch and Kodable. I think the skills these apps and software introduce are important but I also think it would be good if the lessons can be applied to other curriculum areas. Mostly this is not possible but some apps do allow this.

 

I have been working with Year 4 at the end of last term and beginning of this. Their topic has been the Romans so we have tied in many different aspects across literacy, art and history. Firstly we looking at story settings in Roman times, this include looking at images and making notes. The pupils described their own setting and then drew it. We then looked at characters such as soldiers and Celts. We then described and drew a character (note the characters were drawn on a white background with a dark outline). Using the Sketch Nation app the pupils worked through the processes to create a platform game using their illustrations.
I was really impressed with their work and how well they worked together on this task. Their finished games were excellent and very engaging. The final task was to show the games to other pupils who would review them.

What I like about Sketch Nation is it talks to the iPad's camera roll which means it can be applied to any topic.

 

Overall, these activities have taken about six 40 minute lessons. I only work with this class once a week so it would be nice to do more on this idea. Please let me know if you have done anything similar. I would love to hear your ideas.

Presentation Zen: Sir Ken Robinson gives best talk yet at TED Talks Education

Presentation Zen: Sir Ken Robinson gives best talk yet at TED Talks Education | iPad | Scoop.it

"Creativity and education expert Sir Ken Robinson delivered two amazingly popular TED Talks prior to 2013. His first talk http://bit.ly/1fjhkH6 —presented sans multimedia in the true Sir Ken Robinson style — was made in 2006 and is the most viewed TED talk of all time. His follow-up talk given in 2010 http://bit.ly/1f6zZp2 also has been downloaded millions of times. I have seen Sir Ken speak many times and he is always inspiring and engaging, but his latest TED talk, http://bit.ly/IEXH0Q presented at TED Talks Education in April of this year, is my favorite yet. Good presentation is a balance of information, persuasion, and inspiration. Presentations related to leadership must necessarily light a spark and point the way. Sir Ken does not scream or jump up and down but he nonetheless ignites, provokes, and inspires his live audience, and anyone else who cares to listen to his presentation on line, in a meaningful and memorable way. Millions of people have seen his latest talk, but just in case you have not, please set aside about 20 minutes to watch this outstanding, albeit short, talk below."

David Bozetarnik's curator insight, April 30, 2014 11:35 PM

Blended learning has much potential.  However, it is only PART of the solution to why ails education today.  It is not a replacement for funding.  Adequate funding, whether online of f2f, must go hand in hand.  You can't maximize the potential of education while cutting necessary $$$.

There is mounting evidence that complementing or replacing lectures with student-centric, technology-enabled active learning strategies and learning guidance—rather than memorization and repetition—improves learning, supports knowledge retention, and raises achievement. These new student-centered blended learning methods inspire engagement, and are a way to connect with every student right where they are while supporting progress toward grade level standards.

6 Tips for Becoming a Successful Blogger

Being a Blogger is easy, all your need to do is start a new Blog and start writing. Simple is int it? But have you ever thought what it takes to become a successful Blogger? How Bloggers make thousands of dollars every month? Well, answer is dedication, passion and most important they are serious about Blogging.

Lots of people try to earn money online but very few gets success. One of the best ways of earning online is blogging. Blogging is one of the best career opportunity these days. Blogging needs lots of hard work, research and long working hours. But one thing came into my mind can everyone get success in Blogging? If yes, why still many bloggers fail and give up their Blogging. Why many blogs get into parked page after a year and many people, don’t even bother renewing their Blog? The answer is the lack of passion and motivation.
WHAT IS TAKES TO BECOME A SUCCESS FUL BLOGGER?

1. You have writing skills:-

If you have great writing skills, you can become a successful blogger. Writing is the basic skill for becoming a blogger. Your blog readership will depend on how good your writing skills are. When I’m talking about writing, it doesn’t mean writing like an expert, but write like an individual. You are not writing for a book or a newspaper, as they are different. See the editorial page of a newspaper or a magazine, and that’s the exact kind of writing which I’m talking about.

How to write creative article for your readers
Ten tip to improve your writing skills
2. You are disciplined:-

Although every work or profession needs to be disciplined but a blogger should be more disciplined. A blogger should work according to a time-table. It should divide into writing posts, commenting on other blogs and social networking promotion. If you want loyal readers, then you have to post regularly on your blog. If you do not blog regularly, then you will lose your readers.

Eight important pieces of advice for Professional Blogger
Top productive tips for Bloggers
3. You are willing to learn:-

A blogger should always be ready to learn. I m still a learner. I read a lot of other blogs to gain more knowledge. Mostly bloggers share their experiences so that others can learn from them. So do spend some time to read other blogs so that you can increase your knowledge. I’m sure you are one of those who are willing to learn, and that’s why you are here. But even you achieve few goals and get initial success, don’t quit reading. Reading is an essential requirement which will help you to stay updated with the latest information.
4. You are good communicator:-

You can become a successful blogger if you are a good communicator. Some people think that a blogger’s work is over after writing the article. But they are wrong. The main work starts after the completion of the article. A blogger needs to promote that article on social networking sites and then he should also reply to all the comments he got on his article. You need a good communication skills for this. So improve your communication skills if you want to become a successful blogger.
5. You are willing to work hard:-

We have discussed earlier that hard work is the basis for becoming the successful blogger. A blogger has to work day and night to find new ideas and then he has to active on all the social networking sites to promote his blog. You don’t have to stress yourself with too much of work, rather use your time smartly and delegate time-consuming work to your virtual staff.
6. You are a creative person:-

It’s not necessary that every blogger should be a creative person, but it’s certainly an advantage for you. Creativity is one the most important part of writing. Creative articles always attract the attention of readers. It helps you to stand out from the rest.
Bonus: 7) You don’t make stupid mistakes:

Excuse me for my word, but I know as a newbie Blogger, we all make mistakes, and we learn from it. But the real deal is instead of making mistakes, learn from mistakes made by others which will help you to avoid those silly mistakes. Here are few articles, which will guide you few of the stupid mistakes a newBie blogger makes:

Top 21 Blogging mistake that can ruin your Blog
Five mistakes to avoid to become a successful Blogger
Eight things I wish I knew before I started Blogging

These are the qualities you should have if you want to become a blogger. As I said earlier anyone can become a blogger if he have these qualities. Please do add your thoughts in the comments section.
