Schools have begun to recognize the importance of multimedia use in education.
Simon Billington's insight:
The digital aspect of storytelling raises the art to a new level of experience. The emergence of technology and digital media has resulted in some significant departures from the traditional role of storytelling in education: Stories have become media-rich experiences.
"RabbleBrowser is an iPad app that teachers can use to lead their students in a shared web browsing experience. With RabbleBrowser installed teachers can broadcast their browsers to their students’ iPads. Likewise, students can lead the browsing session and the teacher can follow along. Through RabbleBrowser teachers can lock students iPads into the same browser screen. "
"Further recognition of the massive adoption of iPad by so many schools around the world, Apple have just launched two new sections on their iPad App Store. One section is aimed at teachers and parents with apps for the children, broken down in to different age groups and learning activities. "
"A flipped classroom is sometimes the best teaching/learning model some teachers have to use with their students. The use of technology in a flipped classroom should never be regarded as a supplicant of the teacher but only a complimentary element that increases students learning outcomes. I have talked a lot and in more details about the flipped classroom and have also devoted an entire section here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning for tutorials, guides, and presentations on the use of a flipped learning methodology."

"Here are the main apps I suggest for storytelling. Some of them are actual bookmaking apps, some are apps for creating stories in various ways and others are apps I would use to help kids plan out a story. I have listed them in the order of importance for my classroom. I think the first 10 on the list are a must have for all elementary classrooms."
"I must admit that apps for autistic learners are really scarce and hard to find. A few months ago I posted here a list some powerful apps for autism and today while I was looking for new apps that might have been created since the publication of that list I came across this wonderful wheel.
I know that the first thing that comes to mind when you see this wheel is the popular pedagogy Wheel created by Allan Carrington in which he provided suggestions for 62 apps based on Bloom's Taxonomy. The present wheel is developed by Mark Coppin in which he featured a wide variety of apps for autistic students."
"iPads are a great educational tool. In addition to the built in features that can be leveraged to assist learners of all types, the Apple App Store contains thousands of useful apps for teachers and students.
We believe the right mix of apps is required to help the iPad reach its full potential as an effective teaching and learning tool.
Finding apps can be difficult and time consuming.
Here is an eBook of our favorite apps that we discovered over the past year, as well as examples of how to use them in your classroom. Enjoy!"
"It's hard to imagine a single career that doesn't have a need for someone who can code. Everything that "just works" has some type of code that makes it run. Coding (a.k.a. programming) is all around us. That's why all the cool kids are coding . . . or should be. Programming is not just the province of pale twenty-somethings in skinny jeans, hunched over three monitors, swigging Red Bull. Not any more! The newest pint-sized coders have just begun elementary school."

"Audio editing software are usually expensive and hard to operate. As teachers and educators, we sometimes need to record audio clips, edit them and integrate them in our multimedia projects in class. There are a variety of free web tools that you can use with your students to do that. I am sharing with you a list of some of the top free audio editing tools to use with your students."
"In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices.
The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same."
