PicStory For iPad Is A Comprehensive Photo Management App With An Amazing UI | Redmond Pie | iPad learning | Scoop.it
"I would feel quite confident in going out on a limb and guessing that most owners of the iPad use the device in some form to scroll through albums of images and photographs.The Photos app on the iPad offers some support for organizing images, but for those who crave additional power over their life through pictures then it is possible that the PicStory iPad app is what you have been searching for. PicStory is an iPad-only app that aims to let users have powerful control over the elegant organization and management of photographs that are stored on the device. One of the great things about the app is that it can be used at varying levels of intensity and doesn’t necessarily require total control of every aspect to be a useful installation."

Teachers Guide on The Use of Graphic Organizers in The Classroom

Teachers Guide on The Use of Graphic Organizers in The Classroom | iPad learning | Scoop.it

Gone are the days when planning and thinking were done mainly by pen and paper.Technology have made it pretty much easier to think in different other ways. Free mind mapping , brainstorming and concept mapping applications are ubiquitous online and more and more teachers are using them . The 21st century education is based , on a large part of it, on the visual output.

 

The benefits of graphic organizers in education

 

- Teachers can use graphic organizers to engage visual learners and help them organize their thoughts


- Graphic organizers help students make powerful connections between ideas and concepts


- They help students develop their convergent thinking by providing a framework for the development of new ideas through analysis, reflection and display.


- They also help students promote their divergent thinking by using such techniques as brianstorming to generate ideas.


- They can be used for developing vocabulary skills and improve reading, writing and communication skills.


- Students can easily learn new concepts and think in new novel ways using graphic organizers


- They help students focus on connections rather than words 

 

- Finally , graphic organizers can help both teachers and students develop creative and critical thinking skills.

Don't Use Khan Academy without Watching this First | Education Week

Don't Use Khan Academy without Watching this First | Education Week | iPad learning | Scoop.it

by Justin Reich

 

"I'm adding a new plank to my KA [Khan Academy] platform: no teacher or administrator should use or support the use of Khan Academy videos without watching the first episode of Mystery Teacher Theater 2000 or MTT2K. (Tip of my hat to Dan Meyer for leading me to this story.)

 

"The two teachers systematically dissect the video, noting a variety of missteps. There are a few unquestionable errors of mathematics..."

 

"Coffey and Golden are probably most savage when Khan makes these outright mistakes, but I think the true fuel of their satire is their broader critique of Khan's approach. Khan teaches students to memorize a small set of procedural rules for dealing with multiplying negative numbers, with essentially zero effort expended to explain conceptually what the symbolic manipulations represent. In fact, in the final minute of the video, Khan says verbatim, "In your own time, think about why these rules apply."
