"Making use of free iPad apps in the classroom can enable you to diversify your teaching, while providing the opportunity to inspire and get students more engaged in lessons. There  are many different educational apps available, which range from apps like Evernote that allow you to organize your teaching materials, through to interactive whiteboards from Educreations, and Screen Chomp, a screen recording app that can be very useful for teaching lessons on the go. What, then, are some of the best iPads that can be used in the classroom, whether you have multiple tablets, or just one as a teaching tool for different groups?"

Evernote was highlighted in a technology workshop at the MMEA conference.  Recommended organizational tool.  Presenter cautioned against using Evernote for organizing pictures.  He was not able to access his wedding pictures after he loaded them into Evernote!

9 Outstanding Apps to Teach Creative Writing

9 Outstanding Apps to Teach Creative Writing | iPad Resources for the Classroom | Scoop.it

"Creative writing is something students get to learn by the frequency of practice, the more they practice the better they become.Some students develop a negative attitude towards writing because they were never been shown the real joy they can get in engaging in such an act. The traditional way of teaching writing is no longer working. We can not provide a pen and blank paper and expect our students to produce solid pieces of writing. This is a process of commitment, students need to feel connected to the writing task they are immersed in, they need to love it and to love it they need to see why they need to write after all."

EdTech Baier: Create an Interactive Map in iBooks

EdTech Baier: Create an Interactive Map in iBooks | iPad Resources for the Classroom | Scoop.it

"Along with our Director of Admissions I have been working on an iBook guide for our school. One thing she asked me to do was incorporate a virtual tour of the campus.  I told her that I didn't know how to do that, I thought it was beyond my ability level (after all, I'm no programmer, those people are like wizards to me). She wouldn't let it go so I spent some time trying to figure it out.

 "Some time" became days and then almost a whole week. Here's what I managed to do:"

Essential rules for effectively using iPads in middle school classrooms | iSource

Essential rules for effectively using iPads in middle school classrooms | iSource | iPad Resources for the Classroom | Scoop.it

"In the two years of being a principal of a school that has been using iPads on a 1:1 device to student ratio, I have learned a lot about classroom rules that are needed to ensure that the iPads are an effective learning tool rather than a learning distraction.

 

If managed properly, iPads offer amazing benefits to learning and are almost limitless classroom tools.  However, if not properly managed, iPads can also be a detriment to classroom learning and be a major distraction for students.

 

During my time using the iPads in the classrom, I have found the following 11 rules to be essential for keeping the iPads as a learning tool and not a learning distraction."

"Recently I wrote this article, discussing the pros and cons of different screencasting apps. However, 9 days later Apple's updated operating system, iOS6, was released. This allows users to upload video to websites. Now that this is an option, here is workflow that will help you get student screencasts turned in more efficiently and allow you to provide grades, feedback, through the same platform."

ASD Wheel: Apps for Differentiated Instruction

ASD Wheel: Apps for Differentiated Instruction | iPad Resources for the Classroom | Scoop.it

From Apple Distinguished Educator and special education expert Mark Coppin:

"When looking for apps for students on the autism spectrum (ASD), it is important to look at all educational apps and not just those that are tagged as autism apps. They have many of the same learning needs that other students have. This list was developed to provide apps based on common learning characteristics and traits that are typical for students with ASD. It is important to remember that all students learn differently and selecting apps should be based on the unique learning needs of the student.This list is only a sampling of apps available for each skill area. This is not, nor is it meant to be a deļ¬nitive list. This list is intended to give you a starting place and a rationale for picking certain apps."

"There are certain assumptions about using this feature. First, you need to have a cellular capable iPad. Second, you will need a computer to connect to your iPad hotspot.

 

A hotspot “refers to the Internet-sharing feature on iPhone 3GS or later, iPad (3rd generation) Wi-Fi + Cellular or later, and iPad mini Wi-Fi + Cellular.” You can read more in the knowledge base article from Apple."
