The Brainstormer - Story Idea Generator for iPhone | Tablets in de klas | Scoop.it

Writing killer fiction takes practice. Practice takes inspiration. Just spending a few minutes writing less than a page every day, using random ideas from The Brainstormer will elevate your writing and inspire the kinds of original ideas that make publishers salivate over your manuscript.

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 | Tablets in de klas | 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.

Tablet computers in '70% of schools' - BBC News

Tablet computers in '70% of schools' - BBC News | Tablets in de klas | Scoop.it
Almost 70% of primary and secondary schools in the UK now use tablet computers, according to research.

But the study says there is no clear evidence of academic improvement for pupils using tablet devices.

The study, commissioned by education technology charity Tablets for Schools, looked at a representative sample of 671 state and independent schools.

Many pupils reported that they took an internet-connected device to bed to continue social media conversations.

The rapid growth of tablet computers in the classroom was one of the ways in which the study found that young people are immersed in technology at school and home.

Microsoft's next surprise is free Office for iPad, iPhone, and Android - The Verge

Microsoft's next surprise is free Office for iPad, iPhone, and Android - The Verge | Tablets in de klas | Scoop.it

 - THE VergeMicrosoft's Office suite for iPad, iPhone, and Android is now free. In a surprise move, the software giant is shaking up its mobile Office strategy to keep consumers hooked to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents. Starting today, you'll no longer need an Office 365 subscription to edit documents or store them in the cloud. The move comes just days after Microsoft announced a strategic partnership with Dropbox to integrate the cloud storage service into Office across desktop, mobile, and the web. You can now download Office for iPad and store all your documents on Dropbox without paying Microsoft anything at all. Microsoft is also releasing a brand new iPhone app today, alongside a preview of Office for Android tablets, all with Dropbox integration.

It's true! And it works! Have tried it out - now there's no excuse not to work... To be honest, I do find Apple Pages to be a little more user-friendly on my iPad, and it also allows one to save one's documents as Word documents which is what I've being doing. So it's understandable why Microsoft has gone this route.

If you're in a school where students have access to technology they have amazing learning tools at their fingertips. While equity and access is wonderful for students, teachers must know how to harness the power of these devices. If they don't, these tools of engagement can turn into weapons of mass distraction.

Design Thinking with iPads - IPAD 4 SCHOOLS

Design Thinking with iPads - IPAD 4 SCHOOLS | Tablets in de klas | Scoop.it
Design thinking is a powerful tool to really get your students thinking about and tackling a problem or topic at a much deeper level. It is a structured task that focuses on giving considerable time to thinking about and empathising with the people within the situation (Target audience or client), designing and prototyping a possible solution that is immediately challenged in order to improve it. It is used much in business and the design industry but can be used as a general classroom task within any subject area. It also gets students to work quickly without much introduction.

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post | Tablets in de klas | Scoop.it

This term I have been working with upper Key Stage 2 pupils to develop interactive adventure style games in Book Creator. One of the features of the app is it allows you to link objects such as images and text to other pages within the book. For images, tap on the image to select it, then tap on the Info icon and use the hyperlink box to type in the page number. For text, highlight the text withIn the text box and you will see a hyperlink option.

This has enabled us to create games where choices, questions and decisions are asked of the user/player throughout. We have then used this as a stimulus for writing, not only creatively but also instruction and advertising. Above are a few screen shots of an example book I made but I didn't want to show the pupils too much as I wanted them to come up with their own ideas.
