The Best Tools and Apps to Make the Most of Flickr - lifehacker | iPads and Other tablets in Education | Scoop.it
Flickr is a great tool to organize your photos and share them with the world. Plus, ever since Flickr got an overhaul and tons of free space, it's a great place to back up your photos too. Still, it can be even better with a few useful tools from the user community. Here are some of the best.

This is  a great list of tools for both uploading and searching Flickr. I had no idea we had been gifted a TB of space by Flickr.

PicoToons – A TOP PICK Digital Coloring Book and So Much More– App Review - Fun Educational Apps for Kids

PicoToons – A TOP PICK Digital Coloring Book and So Much More– App Review - Fun Educational Apps for Kids | iPads and Other tablets in Education | Scoop.it
Imagine your child opening an art box that is filled with trays of paints, boxes of markers, tubes of glitter, and pages of stickers. PicoToons Coloring Book has an amazing collection of art supplies, and the best part is that they will never run out, never dry up, and never spill. Such a wide range of options encourages children (ages 3-9) to experiment with colors and patterns to create detailed pictures, limited only by their imaginations. PicoToons has earned a Top Pick from Fun Educational Apps because it combines multi-featured project capabilities with sensible parental controls.

This looks like a great app for younger students.

6 Ready To Go iPad Centers ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog

6 Ready To Go iPad Centers ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog | iPads and Other tablets in Education | Scoop.it

"A few of the following iPad Centers/Stations I have posted before, however I thought it might be useful to post them again, at the beginning of the year so you know they are here if you want to try something new during your literacy or math block.  All of the centers can be done using one or two iPads at the center and are actual centers that my students used last year.  I hope you find them useful or they spark new ideas to try with your students."

While not directly a literacy post, I find this article discusses how to integrate a few iPads into the classroom when one does not have a class set or 1:1.

iPads in Teaching - What Are They For? - Ideas Out There | iPads and Other tablets in Education | Scoop.it

"This picture was drawn in response to a post called 'Drawing On A Napkin: Is This How iPads Function In A Traditional Classroom?' by the esteemed Terry Heick.

 

Mine was not drawn on a napkin, but on Notability. And, to answer that snarky Johannesburg based iPad trainer who cannot believe I can do what I do using the iPad, yes I did create it myself!

 

This is what I think iPads are 'for' in education. Let me know what you think."

What a great way to use notability, and yes it isn't always about the apps all the other pieces need to be in place.

Wonderful Visual on SAMR As A Framework for Education 3.0 ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Wonderful Visual on SAMR As A Framework for Education 3.0 ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads and Other tablets in Education | Scoop.it

"Proponents of the sociolinguistic perspective to the study of literacy ( e.g.Paul Gee, Collin Lanksheare, Michelle Knobel, Brian Street, to mention but a few ) view the developments of literacy and with it education as a direct result to the sophistication of the social and cultural aspect of human life. Some of them like Collin and Michelle associate the evolution of education to that of the web and hence the nomenclature education 1.0 (related web 1.0), education 2.0 ( related to web 2.0), and education (3.0 related to web 3.0). This association, however is not haphazard for there are many commonalities between each pair."

"In this quick post I want to share with you this beautiful interactive image on the SAMR model. I learned about this resource from a tweet shared by our colleague David Fife. As you can see from the image below, iPadders provided examples of how to use each classroom task according to the different SAMR categories. And in each category, a set of apps and tools are provided to help you carry out the task under study. I invite you to have a look and share with your colleagues. Enjoy"

Ness Crouch's curator insight, February 23, 3:23 PM

I've heard a lot about SMAR but never really taken the time to look into it. It might be time now that I'm looking at integrating more technology into my classroom. This model clearly supports technology and expects the use of it. 

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, February 27, 3:42 PM

Explains a lot about how digital tech can help, though on investigation this seems to be a model developed seemingly from nowhere without much academic work behind it. Example of a simple model stating the obvious? Does it matter that it's origins are hazy? Having had the chance to look into it and its creator, it's interesting to note how popular it is and how accepted it is, without much critique. Is it really that great a model?! Just wondering! Raises a lot of questions.

"One of the questions I get asked so often is about the resources I draw on for curating educational apps I share with you here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. Well, I am subscribed to over a hundred blogs and websites through both RSS feed and social media and my feed stream is always teeming with hundreds of new things to write about. On average , I spend about 3 to 4  hours of daily  sifting, browsing, and curating in preparation for posts to share with you here, I know it is a lot of time but I do love it so much and I feel happy having to share something of value with my fellow teachers and educators."
