A great read if you are rolling out iPads K-6, Worth the money!

David Daniel Ball's curator insight, February 14, 2013 6:47 PM

Timely and useful

Jane Schmude's curator insight, March 17, 2013 6:44 PM

We all need help with how to use iPads in lessons. Universities are also adjusting to this way of learning in tutorials. If students can have access to these devices during research or reading, they will be well prepared for their future education.

You’re the Storyteller: The Surprise! | iPad in learning | Scoop.it

In You're the Storyteller, the child watches an animated sequence and, while they're watching, records or writes their own story! There are no words in the story so the children have to be creative.

10 Great Writing iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

10 Great Writing iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPad in learning | Scoop.it

By Med Kharbach

 

"It is amazing how fast the iTunes app store is growing, no sooner does an app appear then it becomes outdated. It seems like app developers outnumber customers and this is a good thing for us because with the growing competition comes enhanced productivity. However, searching for educational apps to use or recommend for your kids and students is not an easy task and the abundance of apps does not mean anything out there does what its developers claim. Prudence is highly warranted in your selections. This is one reason why I share lists of educational apps with you here. I know not everyone of you has got the time to sift through the bundles of apps there. That being said, today Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has curated for you a new and updated list of some awesome writing apps. Check it out below and don't forget to share with us your feedback. Enjoy"
