"I have had the privilege of being able to plough new ground in my classroom with a class set of iPads. I now have over a year of experience in using them with my students everyday.

All of the apps in my list of 15 Ways to Use an iPad are ones that I have used with students."

iMovie: 3 easy ways to make movies. Really easy. | iPad Art Room | iPad Tools | Scoop.it

"iMove is a powerful creative tool for teaching and learning. You can use it for a myriad of applications, such as digital storytelling, narrative, documenting experiences, reflecting on learning…and so much more.  But if you have never used film making apps before, it can be difficult to know where to start.  The important thing is to give it a go – you’ll see that it really doesn’t have to be hard. iMovie has some great features that will have you producing your own work in a few minutes.  There is one warning, though – making movies can be addictive!"

iPads in Primary Education: Touch App Creator: Creating Powerful Web Apps for Teaching and Assessment

iPads in Primary Education: Touch App Creator: Creating Powerful Web Apps for Teaching and Assessment | iPad Tools | Scoop.it

"The power of the iPad as a tool for creating varied high-quality multimedia content is extremely useful in the classroom and  with the app Creative Book Builder  by Tiger Ng it has been possible to easily create instructional and explanation texts with video content. This app allowed pupils to have access to a video instruction manual during a design technology project. The app Touch App Creator also developed by Tiger Ng allows this technique to be taken a step further allowing books to be published online and easily hosted on Google Drive. This blog post explores the potential of this app and the way it can be combined with other powerful apps such as Explain Everything."

Thrilled to read this charge for educators in response to the Tablettistes generation:  

 

"Teachers and administrators will face the greatest burden. They will need to adjust on the fly, adapting teaching methods and the classroom environment to be ready for these young Tablettistes. Critical to success will be a shift in attitudes, a willingness to move away from a traditional control model toward something far more collaborative and shared with students."
