36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | iPad pilot at King's | Scoop.it

"The interest in inquiry-based learning seems to ebb and flow based on–well, it’s not clear why it ever ebbs.

 

In short, it is a student-centered, Constructivist approach to learning that requires critical thinking, and benefits from technology, collaboration, resourcefulness, and other modern learning skills that never seem to fall out of favor themselves.

 

Regardless, St Oliver Plunkett Primary School has put together two very useful images that can help you populate your iPad–or classroom of iPads–with apps that support both inquiry-based learning (the second image below), and a more general approach to pedagogy based on Apple’s uber-popular tablet (the top image)."

Inquiry Learning isn't something I do that often.

Many of these app are also available for Android - Dropbox, Evernote, Skype, all Google apps obviously etc. 

Mick Huiet's curator insight, March 15, 2:06 AM

This is a very logical organization of apps.  It would be interesting to compares other schools or districts app usage in this manner.

Instant Opinion Polls in the Classroom

Instant Opinion Polls in the Classroom | iPad pilot at King's | Scoop.it

For a long time now I have been looking for a tool that enables instant polling in the classroom or in the lecture room. I specifically wanted something that; doesn't require registration (especially from the people I'm polling), updates very quickly, works on any platform from computers to mobile devices

It looks like I have finally found what I've been looking for and best of all it's free. The tool that I have found is Mentimeter and it does all of the above.

This is an interesting realtime classroom feedback tool which allows students to respond to classroom input on a range of devices using a range of different formats, from simple true false responses to summaries, image response etc. All responses are then pushed back to the teacher's interface. Interesting tool if you are working with a classroom full of students with mixed mobile devices.

Seems similar to Socrative and Poll Everywhere, though I have to try it with the students.

18 iPad uses: How classrooms are benefiting from Apple's tablets

iPads are quickly becoming a popular and powerful educational tool for classrooms. Beyond the immediate benefit of engaging students, iPads can improve education efficiency and standards. However, many teachers are unsure of how to use them effectively. Coupled with concerns over the costs involved, iPad implementation in schools is seen as an unnecessary and expensive risk.

As the case studies below demonstrate, iPads are being used in education environments around the world with great success. Teachers can have paperless classrooms, take attendance, share interactive presentations and test their students—all on their iPad.

So just what are they doing? Education Dive has compiled a list:

How to use AirDrop - iOS 7’s most important new feature for teachers - teachingwithipad.org

How to use AirDrop - iOS 7’s most important new feature for teachers - teachingwithipad.org | iPad pilot at King's | Scoop.it

"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."

Airdrop is such a great feature for collecting student work.

Larissa Bonthorne's curator insight, November 7, 2013 7:01 PM

This may be an easy way to transfer student work from one device to another, rather than using Dropbox.  It does need iOS 7 to work properly, though.

The biggest and most oft-heard criticism of the iPad usually revolves around it not behaving like a desktop PC or laptop. The people making this complaint are simply missing the point. Apple aren’t trying to make a laptop replacement, why would they? They make a couple of extremely good ones! The iPad is a new kind of device that asks you to think and work differently.
