Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal | iPads and Other tablets in Education | Scoop.it
A higher-order thinker is a critical thinker. What are the attributes of a critical thinker? In The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking Concepts and Tools, Richard Paul and Linda Elder describe a well-cultivated critical thinker as someone who:
raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively; comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; andcommunicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems.

We use Telligami (pictured here) with our 6s along with Crazy Talk (Mac) and Chatterpix, for our A Better World Rap project.  They are all wonderful applications to use with audio and video work. Garageband is also great on iPads for getting kids to be creative with lyric work and musical loops.

A Third Grader’s Plea For More Game-Based Learning - MindShift | iPads and Other tablets in Education | Scoop.it

"Third grader Cordell Steiner makes a pretty convincing argument for using video games in the classroom in this TEDx talk. He describes feeling more motivated to learn and master new skills because of his eagerness to beat his own high score or finish before the clock runs out. He says he used to be bored in class when his teachers had to slow down to explain concepts, but now each student plays games intended to help him or her with specific skills they’re trying to master. He even gives examples!"

Inquiry Learning Ideas for Math and Science With iPads - Mind/Shift

Inquiry Learning Ideas for Math and Science With iPads - Mind/Shift | iPads and Other tablets in Education | Scoop.it
This chapter looks at tools that can be used with the iPad to help you investigate phenomena and collect data. After you collect that data, you look at tools that help analyze the information and present conclusions. You focus less on apps and instead discuss the “application” of mobile technology within a more inquiry-based approach to science and math education. It should be fun!

Whether it’s geometry, physics, or chemistry, scientific method starts with research, discussion, and the development of a hypothesis about the phenomenon being examined. A substantial amount of space in this book is devoted to research, communication, organization, and sharing of information — all important elements in the research and development stage. You start by jumping to the next step: using the iPad for investigating and gathering data for analysis.

EdTechTeam: The How (and Why) It's Time to Create Digital Portfolios | iPads and Other tablets in Education | Scoop.it
Digital Student Portfolios are becoming more important now than ever! Students are creating and remixing information like never before – and where is all that amazing work going? At my old school it was wiped off the devices at the end of the year – a heart-wrenching idea that I was personally against. This is why we need to publish student work in one place and let it serve as a home of student reflection, and a become a destination to unleash student pride and curiosity.

There are many reasons to begin the journey to digital portfolios – here are just a few.

How to install iOS 8.1 on your iPhone and iPad — Even if you're low on storage!

How to install iOS 8.1 on your iPhone and iPad — Even if you're low on storage! | iPads and Other tablets in Education | Scoop.it
iOS 8.1 will run on iPhone 4s and newer, iPad 2 and newer, and iPod touch 5. If you have enough available storage space on your device, you can install it using Software Update. If you're already running iOS 8, storage shouldn't be a problem. If you're still on iOS 7, you'll have to pay closer attention and may need to update using iTunes instead.

I know that storage runs low as we use our iPads and iPhones more and more as cameras and download more and more apps.  Now maybe I don't have to spend time deciding which apps and pictures to delete just so I can upgrade to the latest iOS. Just hook up to iTunes on your computer.  It's so simple I forgot I could do it!

Q: If I retire my old iPad for one of the new models, how do I make sure all of my data is off the tablet and none of it is left behind before donating or selling it?

A: Apple's instructions and interface to reset an iOS device have a refreshing simplicity — the process itself is identical in iOS 7 and iOS 8.

But the documentation and the user experience leave out steps you shouldn't neglect before getting your data off an iPad or other iOS device and restoring it to factory condition for resale or donation.

"Red Eye happens sometimes in photography, often if you’re shooting a subject while using the camera flash, or when a bright light is shining in their eyes. The appearance is striking and usually undesirable, with the subjects eyes literally glowing red. You may run into the red eye effect when taking pictures with any camera, but the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad all have a fantastic trick up their sleeve that lets you quickly remove red eye from just about any picture."

Teaching computer science - without touching a computer - The Hechinger Report

Teaching computer science - without touching a computer - The Hechinger Report | iPads and Other tablets in Education | Scoop.it

"A group of children on a playground, each kid clutching a slip of paper with a number on it, moves along a line drawn in chalk, comparing numbers as they go and sorting themselves into ascending order from one to ten.

 

Another group of children, sitting in a circle, passes pieces of fruit — an apple, an orange — from hand to hand until the color of the fruit they’re holding matches the color of the T-shirt they’re wearing.

 

It may not look like it, but the children engaged in these exercises are learning computer science. In the first activity, they’ve turned themselves into a sorting network: a strategy computers use to sort random numbers into order. And in the second activity, they’re acting out the process by which computer networks route information to its intended destination.

 

Both are from a project called Computer Science Unplugged, which endeavors to teach students computer science without using computers."
