10 Fundamental Apps for Your New iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

10 Fundamental Apps for Your New iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | IPAD - Technology | Scoop.it

"So congrats you've got your new iPad and can't wait to start using it. I know excitement and curiosity to discover newly bought things particularly electronic gadgets makes us want to learn everything about them quickly. Unfortunately it does take a little time and practice ( usability) to get yourself pretty familiar with your iPad. My advice is to start with  some " how to " video tutorials " available on YouTube and get yourself acquainted with the different specs in your iPad. Now comes the second task which is that of searching for and selecting the apps to install. I compiled the list below featuring some of the fundamental apps you should start with."

Great place to start when you get a new iPad. I use Evernote religiously.

MFaculty's curator insight, January 3, 2014 9:40 AM

I actually use most of these apps daily; specifically Evernote, Gmail, Kindle and Dropbox. Although I have the Nook app, I have yet to use it, which may account for it missing from the list of ten.

The Penultimate app seemed intriguing so I've downloaded it, and will kick the tires to se whether or not it stays in my app collection.

 

This listed collection is pretty good, but I wonder what others consider to be their top ten essential apps for the iPad?

Apps in Education: Creating a Quiz or taking a Poll on the iPad | IPAD - Technology | Scoop.it

"I love the fact that the iPad can be used to assess student understanding instantly. I think these Quiz and Poll apps actually give the students the power to direct lessons as opposed to teachers making assumptions about where their kids are at in their learning. Below is a list of apps that allow teachers to create and hold a quiz or poll in their class. A great way to start a lesson to ensure you pitch the lesson at the right level or even to use as a exit poll. Find one that suits you and your students."

Beth Dichter's insight:

Jackie Gerstein shares her top picks for education infographics this year. Some of these have been shared in this Scoop.it but many are new. The list of infographics includes:

* The Internet Access Gap in Education

* The Past, Present and Future of Education

* State of Creativity in Education: An Adobe Survey

* The Gamification of Education

* Tapping into Mobile Learning

* Investing in Girls' Education Pays Off

Many of these would be useful as topics for discussion or to use to teach students why infographics are useful in displaying data.

Nothing hidden about these "tips & tricks" - just standard every day library functions. This is not new, most these functions have been used since Win95, the days before we see the net as we do now. Nonetheless, whatever it takes for people to finally catch up and educate themselves about easier searching techniques!

10 Tips For A Smarter iPad-Based Classroom - TeachThought

10 Tips For A Smarter iPad-Based Classroom - TeachThought | IPAD - Technology | Scoop.it

"When I first raised my hand to pilot my middle school’s first 1:1 classroom, I knew it was going to be bumpy.  

 

After all, I am a practitioner of content, not a tech guru. But the way I see it, I work to not only help guide students to unveil the subject matter (consume), I also work to be up on the most current ways to communicate that content (create). Hence, my willingness to jump out of my wheelhouse, the shallow end of the ed tech pool, and into the deep end of total tech immersion.

 

The only way to learn was to jump in and jump in early, so I raised my hand."

7 Fabulous iPad Apps to Create Short Animated Lessons for Your Flipped Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | IPAD - Technology | Scoop.it

"Flipped learning or flipped classroom is a learning concept that has been making some huge uproar within educational circles for the last couple of years. Flipped classroom is not a new concept as some would argue but only the advance of technology particularly the mobile and handheld gadgetry brought it to the surface and gave it more prominence . I have written profusely about this teaching/learning strategy and  Flipped Learning Resources section here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning features some of these materials."

"Looking for new ideas for how to use technology in your classroom in 2014?  Looking for colleagues to inspire your practice? Ideas to help integrate technology into your lesson plans? Look no further. One of the things we love most about teaching in the age of technology is the ability it gives educators to share innovation in the blogosphere and Twitterverse.  Connected educators can now share what's working (and not working) in their classrooms across the globe, quickly and easily. 

 

"Here are some of the educators whose blogs and tweets we’ll be keeping an eye on in 2014."

Blooms Digital Web Tools

Blooms Digital Web Tools | IPAD - Technology | Scoop.it

description by Edudemic

 

"Designed with the educator in mind this website looks at the array of digital tools and cross references them to the new Bloom action verbs. The tools were selected based on several criteria. First, they had to be free or at least offer a free version as a minimum package. Second, they had to work within our district’s filtering system. Third, they had to be educationally sound and not littered with inappropriate ads.

 

"Easily navigated, this website provides the experiences associated with each Bloom’s level. Once an educator selects a tool he or she is directed to subsequent page which offers the user a more detailed description of the tool along with additional tools that match the same criteria. In some cases, pdf documents are included that provide directions, additional ideas, student/teacher examples, and additional navigational links. A toolbar on the left allows the user to select a tag such as blogging, podcasting, cartoons, etc. This tag instantly takes the user to the Bloom’s category under which the link is housed."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

An outstanding piece of work, curating a tremendous amount of resources and information is a most effect manner. Kudos to creators Kathy Beck and Karen Van Vliet.

 

Just a reminder that we often forget Bloom said their are 3 domains for learning. What's illustrated and described here, and most often referenced by educators, is the Cognitive Domain. The other two, Affective and Psychomotor, are too often forgetten or overlooked.

 

Bloom said there needs to be a balance among the three. My observation does not minimize the excellence of Beck and Van Vliet's work.
