Touch Van Gogh — @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch | iPad Apps for Education | Scoop.it

"And I sincerely hope that Touch Van Gogh, the newly updated, free, award-winning app from the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam is only the beginning of a larger touching art trend.

 

Made for tablets, Touch Van Gogh allows viewers to explore the details, technique and history of six of Vincent van Gogh’s masterpieces: The Cottage, View from Theo’s Apartment, The Bedroom, Seascape near Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, Garden of the Asylum, and Daubigny’s Garden."

10 Free Education Apps for iPad - Getting Smart

10 Free Education Apps for iPad - Getting Smart | iPad Apps for Education | Scoop.it

"One of the most popular categories of apps on any touch enabled mobile devices is obviously educational apps thanks to the real time, ready-in-hand help students get from them in and outside of their classroom. While there are millions of free educational apps, all of them are not worthy enough for downloading. Secondly, most of the top tier feature rich apps are either not free or offer a much downgraded ‘free’ version that offer a user experience far removed from what they provide in ‘paid’ version. So, finding a handful of free and useful education apps on diverse contents requires some amount of research and that is exactly what we help you to do here. Here below we are introducing 10 free education apps for iPad."

Resources for Using iPads in Grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 by Monica Burns - Edutopia | iPad Apps for Education | Scoop.it

Edutopia is one of my favourite web sites. It has recently run a series written by Monica Burns aka @ClassTechTips featuring Resources for Using iPads across multiple grade levels. Though I've featured them each individually here on iPads in Education I thought it might be useful to post all of the series in one collection.

60 iPad Productivity Apps For Modern Teachers

60 iPad Productivity Apps For Modern Teachers | iPad Apps for Education | Scoop.it

But technology may be able to help. This list, for example. We’ve offered ideas in the past to helpteachers save time, but those can only do so much. As can these apps, but every little bit helps, yes? Your workload, grade level, school climate, personal organizational habits–even beliefs about what a teacher is supposed to be and do all matter more than an app, but if you’re mobile and connected, you at least have a chance.

From RSS readers to social readers to to-do lists to calendar apps to note-taking and cloud-based document editing and more, this list has to have something that can improve the efficiency of what you do.

Assuming you have an iPad.

Completely FREE Management App for 1:1 iPad Classrooms - Class Tech Tips

Completely FREE Management App for 1:1 iPad Classrooms - Class Tech Tips | iPad Apps for Education | Scoop.it

"Otus is a terrific management tool for teachers in one-to-one classrooms who want an easy way to keep track of student work, provide opportunities for collaboration, and so much more.  I’ve had the opportunity to share Otus with my readers and webinar attendees and want to highlight one of the fantastic aspects of this powerful app – Otus is completely FREE for students and teachers.

 

With Otus teachers can keep track of participation, send notes to students, and take attendance.  They can also recognize student behavior by awarding points and group students.  The bookshelf feature lets teachers organize folders of resources to share with students – this can be done for whole class, individual, or create groups of students.  Otus gives teachers the power to create, assign, and grade assessments.  It is also simple to share these assessments with colleagues who may wish to use the same one or modify it for their students."

Apps that rise to the top: Tested and approved by teachers | iPad Apps for Education | Scoop.it

With the thousands of educational apps vying for the attention of busy teachers, it can be hard to sift for the gold. Michelle Luhtala, a savvy librarian from New Canaan High School in Connecticut has crowd-sourced the best, most extensive list of appsvoted on by educators around the country.


“I wanted to make sure we had some flexibility because there’s no one app that’s better than all the others,” Luhtala said. Some apps are best for younger students, others are more complicated, better suited for high school students. Many apps do one thing really well, but aren’t great at everything. Still others are bought, redesigned or just disappear — so it’s always good to know about an array of tools to suit the need at hand.
