Resources for Using iPads in Grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 by Monica Burns - Edutopia | iPads and Other tablets in Education | Scoop.it

Edutopia is one of my favourite web sites. It has recently run a series written by Monica Burns aka @ClassTechTips featuring Resources for Using iPads across multiple grade levels. Though I've featured them each individually here on iPads in Education I thought it might be useful to post all of the series in one collection.

How to Remove Red Eye from Photos on iPhone & iPad - OSXDaily

How to Remove Red Eye from Photos on iPhone & iPad - OSXDaily | iPads and Other tablets in Education | Scoop.it

"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."

When teachers engage students in these activities, the engage multiple senses as the children learn through doing in a different way. It is transferring skills, perhaps synthesizing them.

"We started Made with Code because even though increasingly more aspects in our lives are powered by technology, women aren’t represented in the companies, labs, research, creative arts, design, organizations, and boardrooms that make technology happen.

 

If girls are inspired to see that Computer Science can make the world more beautiful, more usable, more safe, more kind, more innovative, more healthy, and more funny, then hopefully they will begin to contribute their essential voices. As parents, teachers, organizations, and companies we’re making it our mission to creatively engage girls with code.

 

Today, less than 1% of girls are majoring in CS.

 

Tomorrow, we can make that number go up."

iPad App of the Week: Juxtaposer | iPad Insight | iPads and Other tablets in Education | Scoop.it

"iPad apps are, and have always been, a big part of what makes the iPad such a powerful device. Great apps, and unique apps that you just don’t find anywhere else, are one of the hallmark features of the iPad. They have been since Day 1, and scores of great developers and publishers continue to produce apps that are exclusively for the iPad. Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday.

 

This week’s pick is Juxtaposer, an app that lets you combine multiple pictures to create fun and striking new images. Better still, it’s got an easy to use interface – that makes the process quite quick."

"This week I’ve been getting excited about using Kahoot in the classroom. Kahoot delivers online quizzes and surveys to your students.


It works very similar to the more well-known Socrative. The teacher displays the question and the answers on the beamer or tv in the front of the classroom. The students see the corresponding icon and color on their screen. They have 30 seconds to answer on their devices and get points for every question they answer right. The quicker they answer the more points they receive. After each question the top 5 students are shown on the board with their scores. This is where it gets exciting. The students love this immediate feedback and want to get to the top position. I have never seen students so focused on answering the questions correctly."
