How to Password Protect Apps on iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad | TheDailyBuggle

How to Password Protect Apps on iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad | TheDailyBuggle | iPads at Sanborn | Scoop.it

While the iOS devices (iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad) excel at ease of use, the maximum protection you’re offered is a passcode lock with an option to erase all personal data upon 10 incorrect attempts. While it may serve enough for lost/stolen cases, what if you want to temporarily hand over your device to someone for use and don’t want prying eyes peering through your personal emails, messages, photos, or launching applications that you want to keep private? For all this, and much more, jailbreakers are in for a treat again. Cydia offers quite a few capable solutions, each with their own distinctive features that can offer much better privacy protection than the native iOS.

 

In this article, we’ll provide a quick rundown of the three most promising solutions for password protecting your apps: Lockdown Pro, FolderLock andLocktopus.

In this section, we take a similar approach as with our Great Tech Tools. In order to help educators integrate iPads effectively, we have compiled a list of apps focused on learning goals consistent with the CRCD framework. While many of these apps have also appeared in our iPads in the Classroom section, this list is driven by specific learning goals that promote critical-thinking, creativity, collaboration, and the creation of student-centric learning environments.

The 200 Best Special Education Apps | Edudemic

The 200 Best Special Education Apps | Edudemic | iPads at Sanborn | Scoop.it

If you’re a special education teacher or are simply looking for an innovative way to reach a student… this is for you. Many apps out there are useful in the classroom but they’re not always easy to find in the clogged-up app store.

 

Ever tried searching for ‘education’ in the iTunes store? You won’t get a simple list of the top resources. Heck, that’s why places likeClassroomWindow have started up to help teachers sort the great stuff from the garbage.

 

Regardless, a Scribd document by Eric Sailers details hundreds of helpful apps that are perfect for special education teachers and more.

"Enter Educreations, a start up that allows anyone to create, narrate, and record lessons (whiteboard style) and publish the tutorials on the web, all from your iPad. This is a pretty amazing looking start up, and just closed a $2.2. million round of funding from investors. I’m guessing that investors see the writing on the digital walls!"

Tony Vincent's Learning in Hand - Blog - Ways to Evaluate Educational Apps | iPads at Sanborn | Scoop.it

I am conducting a series of workshops in Florida and was asked to share a rubric to help teachers evaluate educational apps as part of the workshop. In 2010 Harry Walker developed arubric, and I used his rubric (with some modifications by Kathy Schrock) as the basis for mine. (Read Harry Walker's paper Evaluating the Effectiveness of Apps for Mobile Devices.)

The History 2.0 Classroom: Back to School App-pack

The History 2.0 Classroom: Back to School App-pack | iPads at Sanborn | Scoop.it

"The summer is quickly winding down & a number of teachers will be returning to their classroom with new mobile devices (iPads). Throughout the summer I have been conducting workshops on iPad integration with EdTechTeacher and I thought it might be helpful to pull together a back to school list of apps structured around specific classroom goals. While many schools may already have an Apple VPP program already in place, I know a number of teachers will also be purchasing the apps themselves. Therefore, I will do my best to include both a pay & free app for each objective."

"iPad is gaining momentum in the educational sphere and might , in the near future, be integrated as a leading learning method. iPad is part of the gesture-based technology that is widely embraced by teens and which has pushed some school districts especially here in Canada and also in the States to start using the BYOD approach, for the costs of iPad and their apps is still relatively high."

Top 8 Digital Storytelling Apps to Help Understand Student Strengths

Top 8 Digital Storytelling Apps to Help Understand Student Strengths | iPads at Sanborn | Scoop.it

Here are the "Top 8 Apps" for digital storytelling apps picked by Inov8. They point out that these apps encourage creativity, provide support and remediation for students with special needs, and can be used in many different classroom settings. "They are motivating, engaging and will encourage learners to demonstrate their strengths."

 

"For students with special needs, the creativity of digital storytelling apps has allowed us, as educators, the opportunity to observe and understand the strengths of our students. New apps are primarily hands-on and highly visual, and provide an opportunity for those learners who struggle with traditional instructional methods to take advantage of their abilities and strengths. Professionals in special education want to use apps in many different contexts, integrated into global curricula, across disciplines, as well as be able to insert their own content. Ultimately we want to customize, individualize and personalize the use of these digital storytelling apps for our students."

Images could be pasted or uploaded into a few of the projector apps. There are not as many apps that teach multiple languages than I thought there would be."
