Sketchnoting - Kathy Schrock's Guide to Everything

Sketchnoting - Kathy Schrock's Guide to Everything | iPad for Education | Scoop.it

"Sketchnoting, in its purist form, is creating a personal visual story as one is listening to a speaker or reading a text. I also believe the interactive notebook, which includes the process of taking "regular" notes" while listening to a speaker and later creating a sketchnote of the text notes, would also be considered sketchnoting. This page will provide links, ideas, tips,and research evidence dealing with the power of sketchnoting. If you are looking for a book on the topic, the seminal work is this book by Mike Rohde.       "

Setting Default Apps on the iPad with Google - Jonathan Wylie

Setting Default Apps on the iPad with Google - Jonathan Wylie | iPad for Education | Scoop.it

"If, like me, you are a Google Apps user who loves to use their iPad, you may have longed for the ability to have your favorite Google services set as the default apps on your iPad. Well, you can, to a degree, and here’s how.

 

Today I saw a post on Google+ by Chris Betcher, a Google Certified Teacher and Trainer, that reminded me how to do just that. It’s simple really, and there is no need for workarounds or even jailbreaking your device, because Google has done all the hard work for you."

Neat work by my friend and colleague Chris Betcher :).

Mike Dilger's curator insight, November 21, 2013 5:13 AM

Google presents us with lots of possibilities for collaboration and integration in our work.  Having a connection between our iPad and our desktop computer is important.  This article may give you an idea of some of the possibilities.  We should all have a "cloud" storage space and google Drive is a good place to start, similar to Dropbox but with more advantages and possibilities.
