Looking from a SENCO perspective as a resource that can be used by teachers to get them thinking about using apps for those students with high learning needs. Student voice and autonomy could be increased by having them explore the apps indicated as being useful and give feedback on how and why they think the app would fit with their learning needs.

While this topic focuses on literacy, I believe many issues of illiteracy center on this very idea of executive functioning and metacognitive abilities.

I haven't had a chance to use this yet, but if it lives up to the blurb it should be good. One of the features of mobile learning is the "small chunks" of learning thto users expect, so this could offer a good way to provide that.

A Beginner’s Guide To Setting Up An eBook Library On Your iPad

A Beginner’s Guide To Setting Up An eBook Library On Your iPad | iPads at Sanborn | Scoop.it
The recently announced iPad mini, along with similar digital tablets like the Kindle Fire and Nexus 7 make for nearly perfect e-reading devices.

 

Building an e-library is ten times easier than building and maintaining a paper book library.

 

So after you’ve purchased your iPad, you will want to install at least two e-book reading apps on your device: the iBooks Reader and the Kindle for the iPad. Both are free downloads.

 

This beginner’s guide recommends apps and features to get you started in building your library. Though the focus on is on the iPad, because it’s the device used for the last two years to build an e-library, the recommendations apply to other devices, including the Amazon Kindle and the Barnes and Nobel Nook. But the iPad offers some extra features that you will eventually find useful over other devices.

Is it the iPad, the apps or the user?

Is it the iPad, the apps or the user? | iPads at Sanborn | Scoop.it

And now we have the tablet. The iPad has begun a new “education revolution” and now the obligatory opposition tech companies have joined the battle. The question has to be asked – are we again starting from the wrong end of the battle lines? Is the iPad (inserted alternative tablet if so desired) the real catalyst or is there so much more to this than money spending school systems can see beyond the new and shiny?

It’s why I ask the question: Is it the iPad, the App or the User?

Rachelle Wooten's comment, February 3, 2013 2:53 PM
It's true much of the true revolution will be realized when the user knows how to wield the tool. I'm also concerned that many teachers feel overwhelmed with testing, deadlines, meetings, etc. and have not made the paradigm shift from teaching is a "would like to do" to a "need to do." It's challenging! It's also my motivation for researching and examining the effectiveness of the tech tools we use in classrooms.
