16 Apps That Motivate Kids to Read

16 Apps That Motivate Kids to Read | ipadinschool | Scoop.it

"For every kid who is caught hiding beneath his covers with a flashlight and a novel at midnight, there is another who has to be begged and pleaded with to read.  And the latter might need a little extra—shall we call it encouragement?—to become a great reader. To help, we've rounded up a list of the top apps that not only teach essential reading skills but also motivate kids—even the most book-phobic—to read, read and read some more."

Teacher's Visual Library of 40+ iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Teacher's Visual Library of 40+ iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | ipadinschool | Scoop.it

 

"I love it when I come across such educators curated lists of apps because I know since these apps are reviewed by fellow teachers then there is a high possibility that they will work for other teachers in different settings too.

For instance, the wonderful work embedded below and which has been created by the folks in St.Plunkett Oliver Primary School http://www.stoliverplunkett.qld.edu.au/Pages/default.aspx ; is a great library of apps that every teacher should have the chance to explore. It contains a set of useful apps pertaining to different categories. Most, if not all of these apps, have been already reviewed here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning before but it is much more practical to see them  compiled and organized all in one page."

iPads in the classroom – A development of a taxonomy for the use of iPads in schools

The investigation shows that almost all objectives, teaching tasks and concepts of thecurriculum can be promoted with the aid of tablet computers. Nevertheless, a lot ofprerequisites in terms of hardware and software are required for a successful integration of tablets. In addition, there are some drawbacks, such as the lack of teacher training and slower text production.

Why Teachers Are Trying Out Apple TV In The Classroom - Edudemic

Why Teachers Are Trying Out Apple TV In The Classroom - Edudemic | ipadinschool | Scoop.it

"Apple TV is a little black box that can work miracles in a classroom. Built largely for entertaining purposes by Apple, Apple TV is used increasingly in the classroom by educators who primarily want to take advantage of the mirroring capabilities of the device. For those who are not familiar with the term “mirroring”, simply put, a key feature in Apple devices called “AirPlay” can literally mirror or project your device’s screen (iPod/iPad/iPhone), via an LCD projector that is connected to the Apple TV. All you need aside from an Apple TV is an iPad 2 or newer, an LCD projector, and then, the sky is the limit."

This is awesome.  So much theory of teaching collides with the practice.  This could be a great way for teachers in the trenches share their experience and get genuine change in education happening.

Denise Weinhoeft-Renfro's comment, July 5, 2013 3:17 PM
This is truly a great tool in my estimation, but theory and reality also collide with technology. If you are not 1:1 then the potential of the app is not getting used in the best way that it can.

How to Save Web Pages as PDF Files on the iPad & iPhone - OSX Daily

How to Save Web Pages as PDF Files on the iPad & iPhone - OSX Daily | ipadinschool | Scoop.it

"One little feature that iOS really needs is the ability to natively “print to PDF” directly on the iPad and iPhone, a popular trick on the Mac and in the PC world that allows you to digitally print anything and, in this case, save the contents of any web document or web page as a self-contained PDF document, allowing it to be read later, printed, or used for whatever other purpose. Since this great feature isn’t around on the iPhone and iPad at the moment, we can use a nice bookmarklet trick combined with a free third party web service to be able to add a “Save as PDF” option to Safari in iOS, which allows you to ‘print’ or convert any web page to a PDF file that is then accessible to apps like iBooks. Let’s walk through the process of setting this up:"

It's better to have 8 iPads permanently in your classroom than share a class set.

This is a great project!  Whilst 1:1 may well be the aim for many it is not always achievable due to the financial cost.  Julian's #8ipads project however puts a new slant on the iPads as a shared resource.

ÈIt can be intimidating to try something new in your classroom. This is especially true with technology.

Even though I'm coming from an iPad classroom, these structures and routines are great for introducing all one-to-one devices."

Good sensible structures make management so much easier. 

Becca Wagman's curator insight, April 6, 4:25 PM

Classroom Climate: This article showed me important details on implementing technology into the classroom. It stressed how to ease into applying technology into the class and how for teachers to teach students the proper way to handle the electronics they get to use. When thinking of project-based learning, there needs to be a strong implementation of technology for students to use for project research and further exploration. Since this generation is so technology driven it is important to teach students how to use technology safely. (ROUTINE)
