20+ Fun Free Apps that Promote Student Centered Learning & Literacy : Teacher Reboot Camp | iPad Lessons | Scoop.it

Lately, I have discovered many cool free apps that are incredible for creating digital stories, reading stories, and interacting with stories. These apps are incredibly engaging and meet the needs of our diverse learners. They allow learners to interact with the plot, characters, and even design of the story. They also support multiple learning styles because they are visual, have sound, and animation.

Six Examples of iPad Integration in the 1:1 Classroom

Six Examples of iPad Integration in the 1:1 Classroom | iPad Lessons | Scoop.it

Our teachers are not teaching to the iPad, nor are they teaching apps. They are teaching skills and assessing student learning in a more dynamic way. Many of our classrooms are flipped; project-based learning and assessments are being integrated more prevalently; and students are engaged in relevant, purposeful learning experiences.

Here are a few examples of what a few of our teachers have put together.

Worksheets in iBook | ipadders.eu

Worksheets in iBook | ipadders.eu | iPad Lessons | Scoop.it

On a typical paper worksheets a question would normally look something like this: What are the different figurative language techniques used in in this text.”
__________________________________________________________
The lines on the paper gives students the space to write their answers. Unfortunately, iBooks Author only allows you to put in multiple choice questions. The iBookWidgets app does allow you to put in text questions but they’re not always aesthetically pleasing and can be a time consuming process.
An easier option is to write the question in your iBook and let students type their answers in a note like below.
An added bonus is that all notes are automatically saved to the “My Notes” part of the iBook.

Konstantinos Kalemis's comment, September 5, 2012 12:29 AM
Digital Storytelling is the practice of using computer-based tools to tell stories. As with traditional storytelling, most digital stories focus on a specific topic and contain a particular point of view. However, as the name implies, digital stories usually contain some mixture of computer-based images, text, recorded audio narration, video clips and/or music. Digital stories can vary in length, but most of the stories used in education typically last between two and ten minutes. The topics that are used in Digital Storytelling range from personal tales to the recounting of historical events, from exploring life in one's own community to the search for life in other corners of the universe, and literally, everything in between. A great way to begin learning about Digital Storytelling is by watching the following video introduction to Digital Storytelling.
According to Bernard Robin, at the University of Houston, she states in her Power Point presentation that the educational uses of digital storytelling are immeasurable. She clearly shows that if this type of technology is used appropriately by classroom teachers its results will be effective in helping students with research skills, writing skills, organizational skills, technology skills, presentational skills, interviewing skills, interpersonal skills, problem-solving skills, and assessment skills. She also mentions that students will learn information from digital storytelling that will influence and improve their digital, global, technology, visual, and information literacy skills. The questions that arise around the practicality of using such technology have lead others to write about how digital storytelling can be integrated into the classroom to allow students to construct their own learning. In an article in Library Media Connection (2003) titled, What’s Your Digital Story? the authors explain that when we integrate digital storytelling into classroom projects we also enable students to construct their own stories. This pursuit requires students to become active participants instead of passive viewers. They further state that when students structure in narrative stories they are more likely to remember this information and commit it to memory as it is believed that our brains are wired in narrative stories and the construction of these stories help us to better cope with conflict and give us the ability to put incongruity into neat little packages we call stories. There is also reason to believe that by producing digital stories students become more critical when viewing media such as television, computers, and video games. They can now see how easy it can be to manipulate images and text to produce information that is less than truthful.
According to (Barrett, 2006) she sees digital storytelling as a means of creating a reflective portfolio that ties into a new type of learning environment whereas the instruction is student centered with multi-sensory stimulation. As students work collaboratively exchanging information in an active mode with real opportunity they develop and use critical thinking skills. The new learning environment has application because it is authentic and the learning is not isolated or out of context. She states that students will be able to:

• Communicate using a variety of media and formats
• Access and exchange information in a variety of ways
• Compile, organize, analyze, and synthesize information
• Draw conclusions and make generalizations based on information gathered
• Know content and be able to locate additional information as needed
• Become self-directed learners
• Collaborate and cooperate in team efforts
• Interact with others in ethical and appropriate ways

Available via http://www.rm.com/_RMVirtual/Media/Downloads/ipad_lessonideas.pdf:

a 21 page pdf booklet from RM education with inquiry based lesson ideas, objectives and workflows around using various Apps and the iPad to achieve the learning outcomes.

e.g: “I’m a math teacher and I want to test my pupils’ understanding of key concepts explained in class. I give them an assignment ( individually or in pairs): they should imagine they are planning a school disco in aid of charity. Their task is to identify and research the possible costs, plan the budget for the event and answer some questions such as : What are the three main costs, what is the correct ticket price, how
many attendees should we have to break even and what is the value of the funds raised.”

Then goes on to outline an iPad App workflow for this learning task.
