40 Simple Ways to Inspire Learning with Mobile Devices

40 Simple Ways to Inspire Learning with Mobile Devices | Learning with Mobile Devices | Scoop.it

For iPads, chromebooks and laptops.


Acclaimed author Sam Gliksman will show you “40 Simple Ways” to engage your students with creative projects - whether you’re a new teacher or experienced educator, whether you teach younger or older children, and whether you have one device or many.  ​


But this isn’t a book about devices. It’s about using those devices to create a culture of passionate learning in the classroom. Create exciting green screen videos, compose multimedia eBooks, produce old-time radio shows, document and explain experiments and much more. All of the projects come with precise step-by-step instructions, tips and a list of recommended apps for iPads, smartphones, and Chromebooks. Many projects also include detailed instructional videos that make it easy to get started right away.

Create Engaging Green Screen Video Projects

Create Engaging Green Screen Video Projects | Learning with Mobile Devices | Scoop.it
One of the most imaginative class projects I’ve consulted on was a 4th grade project about California Missions. Each year, students were required to submit written reports about the history and significance of the religious outposts. From all reports, it wasn’t exactly the most electrifying week of the year. After much discussion, we decided to throw tradition out the window and take a very different approach. This time, we asked students to demonstrate their understanding by creating video guides to the mission with the aid of some magical green screen technology.

9 Keys to Creating Effective eBooks with Students

9 Keys to Creating Effective eBooks with Students | Learning with Mobile Devices | Scoop.it

We constantly ask students to demonstrate their knowledge and writing is certainly one of the most commonly employed assessment tools. However, the last decade has seen a huge transformation in communication technologies. Almost 75% of US adults have a smartphone and media creation is skyrocketing. Today we communicate with each other using a hybrid of different media. One tool that allows students to express themselves by combining text with different media is the eBook.

Map Knowledge on Interactive Images

Map Knowledge on Interactive Images | Learning with Mobile Devices | Scoop.it
Photos are a beautiful way to capture a moment. However, sometimes you’d like to know more about that moment. What if you could tap on a photo of world leaders to hear more about their conflicting opinions? It would be interesting to scan a map of the solar system and tap on a planet to pop up facts and photos of it. Imagine tapping around a photo of a bookcase to hear reviews of the books on the shelves? The creation of these sorts of interactive images enables students to learn by visually mapping their knowledge on a two dimensional photo.
