16 iPad Apps to Support the Writing Process {Part 1 of 2} | Learning Unlimited | Research-based Literacy Strategies

16 iPad Apps to Support the Writing Process {Part 1 of 2} | Learning Unlimited | Research-based Literacy Strategies | Technology & Education | Scoop.it

"Today’s writers benefit from an incredible assortment of digital tools from which they can draw inspiration and productivity. Although some writers prefer to stick to old-fashioned pen and paper or even typewriters, there’s a vast population of others that are happy to take advantage of all the new tools out there.

Some of the brightest of these tools can be found on the Apple iPad, and Terry Heick at TeachThought has compiled 16 of them here. Whether students need a place to scribble ideas, organize plotlines, or just find their zen before sitting down to write, these apps have them covered. And you, too."

Explain Everything A Connected Creativity App

Explain Everything A Connected Creativity App | Technology & Education | Scoop.it

"As I dig deeper into the reality of the one iPad Classroom I am most intrigued by apps that allow students and teachers to create. On a computer I have learned to weave together digital tools to make them do exactly what I want them to do, but I must admit I am not there yet on the iPad. One app that appeals to me for teaching and learning on an  iPad is Explain Everything."

How To Use Chrome's 'Supervised User' Parental Control Feature

Google Chrome 32 is out, and with this latest update, the web giant has brought some really handy new features to the table. The new Supervised Users option that gives you full control over Chrome’s user management, allowing you to add browsing restrictions for your supervised users, as well as monitor their web activity. In what follows, we’ll take a closer look at how this new feature works. At its very basic, the Supervised Users features allows the main Chrome account to administer multiple sub-accounts that have been added to Chrome. A supervised user will have their browsing activity monitored through a web-based control panel, from where the Admin can view the sites they’ve been visiting, as well as block access to certain websites for their account. The feature is still in beta but works really well, and can help you monitor your children’s activity on the web.

Mirror iPad, iPhone, iPod to Your Screen for Free

Mirror iPad, iPhone, iPod to Your Screen for Free | Technology & Education | Scoop.it

"The simplest way to see exactly what's on your Apple device's screen is buy Apple's VGA (Dock Connector or Lightning) or HDMI (Dock Connector or Lightning) adapters. Those adapters plug into the connector at the bottom of your device and send out a video signal to the projector or TV at the other end. There's no software to install–it just works when you plug it in. Those adapters sell for between $27 and $45. I want to tell you about iTools because it's a free mirroring solution.

 "

John Pearce's curator insight, March 16, 2013 10:29 PM

From Tony Vincent this post looks at iTools connection. The upside is that there is no software to install but the drawback is that you are tied to the projector and therefore can't walk around the room or broadcast multiple devices.
