Appealing Apps for Educators: Flipping iPad from Consumption to Creation Station | iPads and Apps in Education | Scoop.it
Creativity in the classroom is more abundant than ever as teachers and students are using iPads in amazing ways.
Caroline Bucky-Beaver's insight:

Great list of iPad apps here that can be used to create content.  For each app, she provides an explanation of how the app can be used in the educational setting.  What I love about her list is that she also offers other, less expensive, options to the primary app she features where options exist.

Apps in Education: Skitch Primary Poster | iPads and Apps in Education | Scoop.it

"This is the second in a series of posters for supporting Primary students in an iPad environment. I love Skitch as a tool for my students to show me what they have learnt. I know a lot of the students navigate freely within the touch and swipe environment but this is for those little ones who might forget what some of the buttons do."

Skitch is a WONDERFUL app.  I will need to share this with schools in my district that are new to using iPads.

Christy P.Novack's curator insight, March 25, 2013 3:05 PM

I am a fan of Evernote, who produce Skitch. This looks like a great way to have kids "show what they know" as a form of assessment that is not standardized and boring.

Mobile apps for recording measurements: Photo Measures and Measured

Mobile apps for recording measurements: Photo Measures and Measured | iPads and Apps in Education | Scoop.it

Your iPhone’s camera can do more than just take photos. It can also help you record measurements for do-it-yourself projects. I recently tested two apps—one that lets you record measurements on the photos you snap and another that also taps into your iPhone’s accelerometer to do the measuring for you.
