iPads vs. PCs in Teaching

iPads vs. PCs in Teaching | iPad Apps for Education | Scoop.it

"This is an opinion piece for the pros and cons of using both iPads and the traditional PCs in teaching. Since I am beginning my fourth year of using an iPad in my classes, I thought it would be great time to compare how each device is used, as well as state how they can complement one another. I contacted my colleague Jonathan Wylie, and we brainstormed together some ideas for this post."

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."

teachingwithipad.org - Where did My Camera Roll and Photo Stream go in iOS8?

teachingwithipad.org - Where did My Camera Roll and Photo Stream go in iOS8? | iPad Apps for Education | Scoop.it

"People who downloaded iOS8 this week were surprised to find something very familiar missing from their Photos app. Gone is the Camera Roll that we have been so accustomed to. Also gone is the Photo Stream folder that contained the last 1000 photos taken on all our devices. These have been replaced by a Recently Added folder. Looks pretty messy, in my opinion. I enjoyed having the distinction between the two."

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.

"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."
