ShowBie - The iPad Workflow Solution?

ShowBie - The iPad Workflow Solution? | ipad2learn #iPad #E-Learning #schreiben #lernen #m-learning | Scoop.it

Collecting, organising and giving feedback on digital media produced by students is a challenge! Until now.

Enter Showbie

Showbie is a workflow app and cloud solution to assign, collect and review “assignments”. It’s clever use of the “Open In” feature allows students to “hand-up” just about anything they create on an iPad using the Showbie app.  What’s more, its simple interface makes this a workable solution even for our 6 and 7 year olds.  From a teacher’s perspective, they can assign tasks, share resources for the tasks and easily see who has handed up their work and comment on it using annotations, audio notes or text comments.

The support team are very responsive to support requests and have made it easy to answer your own questions including useful tutorials on how to use ShowBie with dozens of apps including my favourites: iMovie, Explain Everything, BookCreator, Comic Life and anything in the Camera Roll.

Showbie address the workspace part of an ePortfolio – but does not currently serve as a “showcase” environment or collaborative space.

Just four apps mentioned here, but that's probably a good start.

Blake Turnbull's curator insight, May 13, 2013 5:19 PM

We all know who important vocabularly acquisition is, and so free apps to aid in this process are certainly a bonus!! This article looks at 4 apps: Kids' Vocab by MindSnacks, English First High Flyers, Flashcardlet, and Futaba, with details about them all and the way in which they can support vocabulary acquisition.

6 iPad Apps for Documentaries ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | ipad2learn #iPad #E-Learning #schreiben #lernen #m-learning | Scoop.it

Since the time I published " The Best Free Documentary Websites " Two years ago I got several recommendations from teachers asking to add some new titles to the list. I have been bookmarking several of these tools and I am planning to share them in an extensive list in the coming weeks.

For today's post, I am sharing with you some great iPad apps that will enable you to watch documentaries on the go. I have only featured the most popular ones in this field.

Teaching like it's 2999: Schoology vs. Edmodo, Round 2 - Also, why Schoology solved my iPad workflow woes | ipad2learn #iPad #E-Learning #schreiben #lernen #m-learning | Scoop.it

Where Edmodo edges out Schoology...

   

 

Professional Learning Community. Edmodo has been around longer - about a year to be exact. Perhaps for that reason - or perhaps because of a different company focus - its professional learning networks are more mature and active than those in Schoology. I myself am part of quite a few Edmodo groups and find them helpful to connect with other educators and get ideas. The "discover" link on your page is also a neat tool to find great resources that you otherwise might not come across.Small Groups. Schoology's platform allows for the creation of different classes, and even the ability to invidivually assign quizzes or assignments, but you cannot create small groups. In Edmodo, you not only have the ability to do this, but the tool is easy and intuitive. Moreover, it is possible to have the same students in multiple small groups - a great feature when creating multiple project groups or ability-based scaffolded groups.

Where Schoology has Edmodo beat... iOS App / iPad Workflow. This was the biggest win for me. I should have honestly put this one first and could write an entire post on it. Instead, I'll just bold the subtitle and make the font red so hopefully you continue to reading to here. The Schoology iPad app solved (almost) all of my iPad Workflow issues. It's a one-stop solution for turning in students' digital work directly to Schoology assignments - from almost every productivity / creation iPad app we use (without having to first put it in a backpack or another file repository as Edmodo requires). It works with any app that allows you to either save the video or image to your photo roll, or open the file into another app. Some examples: Pages, Keynote, Numbers, iMovie, Puppet Pals, Popplet, PaperPort Notes, iAnnotate and Doceri / Explain Everything (the screencasting apps we used to replace Educreations / ShowMe / ScreenChomp).

iPad in der Schule » Vergleich iPads – Windows-Tablets – Android Tablets

Am 28.11.2012 fand in Essen die Fachtagung “Hands-On: Tablets für die Schulen ?!” statt. Veranstalter war die Medienberatung NRW des Ministeriums für Schule und Weiterbildung in NRW.

Dokumentation der Veranstaltung

Eingeladen waren Vertreter der unterschiedlichen Betriebssysteme iOS, Windows 8 und Android. Es sollten 5 Aufgaben aus den Bereichen

Bedienen – AnwendenInformieren – RecherchierenKommunizieren – KooperierenProduzieren – PräsentierenAnalysieren – Reflektieren

praktisch vorgeführt werden. Android nahm an der Live-Demo allerdings nicht teil.

Hier die Aufgaben als PDF, die den jeweiligen Systemvertretern im Vorfeld bekanntgegeben wurden.

Die gesamte Veranstaltung wurde per Video aufgezeichnet.

Gegenüberstellung der Lösungsansätze unterschiedlicher Tabletanbieter zu schulrelevanten Workflows als Videodownload (Achtung! Lange Ladezeit da sehr große MP4-Datei mit 421 MB).

Heiko Idensen's insight:

… interessante Veranstaltung!
Hilfreich wäre ein kurzer Überblick der Ergebnisse des Vergleich .. vielleicht in einer Tabelle oder so?
Sich ein langes Video dazu anzuschauen ist nicht immer der optimalste Weg …

iPurpose before iPad

iPurpose before iPad | ipad2learn #iPad #E-Learning #schreiben #lernen #m-learning | Scoop.it

I’ve started creating a table of important skills, some derived from the Padagogy Wheel, and actions, some derived from iPad As… What I am planning to highlight is that there are many apps that can be use for many purposes and for developing many skills. For example, I have already added “Explain Everything” to 9 categories as I see it as a multifunctional app and one worth its price because of the educational benefits it provides. Over the coming months I plan to add text descriptions to each category to explain how the apps listed address the skill or action they have been linked to and may also link them to other online sources that show them in action. I’ll also provide direct links to the App Store, as I always do on this blog when I mention apps so you can check them out yourself if you want.

Now this sounds like a big task and it is. So I do need some help. What do I want from you? Anything you can give. Just add them to the comments of this post.

Examples of apps that help to develop specific skillsAdditional skills I haven’t listed hereExamples of apps that are multifunctional.Explanations of good pedagogical practice with apps. Don’t worry, all credit will go to you when I include your suggestions.Links to blog posts, websites, Youtube tutorials, open wikis, nings etc that promote good practice that I can link to from here.Examples on add ons like bookmarklets for curation sites, websites that work well with iPads ( Flash-free) that can still be categorised under these headings for iPad use.Spread the word regularly through Twitter, Facebook, Curation sites like Pinterest and Scoop-It to keep educators coming back.

Overall, Apple products accounted for 71% of mobile devices used on the HotChalk Network, and iPads alone accounted for 43%. For mobile phones specifically, Androids and iPhones were equally represented in our mobile audience at roughly 24% each. However, the competition for paid digital education content was much closer, with Apple slightly edging out Amazon.

Empowering Students and Instructors: Reflections on the Effectiveness of iPads for Teaching and Learning | EDUCAUSE.edu | ipad2learn #iPad #E-Learning #schreiben #lernen #m-learning | Scoop.it

Devices like the Apple iPad call for purposeful experimentation to see how mobile technology might be used in teaching and learning and in updating established educational models to engage today’s students. This ELI Brief describes the findings from three Indiana University (IU) faculty learning communities that spent the 2010/2011 academic year studying the effectiveness of iPads for teaching and learning. iPads were found toincrease student engagement by providing innovative and creative learning environments, despite the effort required to make adjustments to the technology. In addition, successful iPad initiatives depend on effective, scalable support models, for both pedagogical and logistical support.

Apps in Education: 10 iPad Apps for Web Curation

Apps in Education: 10 iPad Apps for Web Curation | ipad2learn #iPad #E-Learning #schreiben #lernen #m-learning | Scoop.it
Curation vs. Aggregation? Curation is such a necessity these days. The overwhelming wave of information we are exposed to is drowning us in facts and opinion. Not only do we need to be curating the information that we are consuming but we need to be insisting that our students have the skills and necessary tools in which to curate their own world. I have listed a number of capable curation apps that can help to do just that.
I tend to use more than one of these and in fact there are days that I would use three or four. Have a look at the ones that might feel right for you. I have a soft spot for Flipboard but only because it was the tool that first opened my eyes to the potential of the iPad in a classroom - I used it as a twitter fed "further reading" text for a senior art class. Enjoy!
