"This post is born out of a request I have repeatedly received from several readers of Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. Some of you have emailed me asking for apps to help increase teachers productivity in terms of classroom management, planning tasks and assignments....etc. I have already reviewed apps for each of these categories and some of them are included in the links below :"
"Take a moment to think about how you learned to write. What steps did you go through? What was your process?
Most of us learned the same core set of skills on paper: organize, draft, edit, revise, turn in. Our teachers then marked up what we had handwritten or typed, and returned our writing. From there, maybe it ended up tacked to a bulletin board, stuck on the refrigerator door, stuffed into a notebook, or tossed in the nearest trash can. Let's call this Writing 1.0."
"When Apple announced Airdrop this past June, I knew it would be a great feature for teachers with iPads. A common complaint about iPads in the classroom was that it wasn’t necessarily easy to transfer student work in the Camera Roll to the teacher. With no USB connection and no SD card slot, how was a teachersupposed to collect student work? Email would work for small files, but videos were much too large to send. Dropbox could be a solution, but that would require students to set up their own accounts, problematic if they are under a certain age. Enter AirDrop, a seamless and very quick way to transfer files via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections between “nearby” devices."
"My technology integration specialist asked me to provide a list of creative apps that we have used in our classroom. All the apps are in our tool box, have been used, or will be used. I have included some of the many videos that show students actually using the apps. I have also included the original post if you would like to read the details surrounding the use of the app."
Voor blinde leerlingen is gamen niet zo vanzelfsprekend als hun ziende klasgenoten, omdat het merendeel van de bestaande games niet toegankelijk zijn voor hen. Op EduVIP is een lijst gepubliceerd van 30 games.
