Using Showbie with the SAMR Model - Showbie

Using Showbie with the SAMR Model - Showbie | iPads | Scoop.it

"Since I began using iPads in my teaching 4 years ago, choosing the right tools for a lesson becomes even more important. This is simply down to the number of apps that are targeted at education. It could be the case that a teacher would look at their weekly planning and type each lesson keyword into the App Store to find an app for every lesson. What the teacher may be left with is very little space on the school iPads, very little space left in the school budget and very little confidence left in the school teachers who are unfamiliar with using iPads in their lessons and are presented with an iPad with hundreds of apps installed. The question is: how many of the education apps out there actually improve upon existing teaching and learning resources? This is where the SAMR model comes in. Every classroom in the world has resources: books, tools, posters and often technology. Technology in my opinion is another classroom tool that does not replace other resources, rather co-exist with them. Choosing technology for every lesson can be tempting but often, it is not required."

Thousands of Free Media Files in the Public Domain Project - FRACTUS LEARNING | iPads | Scoop.it
It doesn’t take a lot of digging to find free media online, but more often than not, although these assets may be free to view and often download, copyright and licensing rules can put some pretty heavy restrictions on using them. This is where sites like the Public Domain Project can be of huge value, providing easy and searchable access to media files that are completely free of all known copyright restrictions. And that’s about as free as free gets on the modern web.

How To Do Green Screen Photography on an iPad at School - Jonathan Wylie

How To Do Green Screen Photography on an iPad at School - Jonathan Wylie | iPads | Scoop.it
There are lots of great learning opportunities when you use green screen effects in the classroom. I’ve written about some of those before, but almost all of them involved green screen movies. What about green screen photography? Is that possible on an iPad? It is, because there’s an app for that.

Recently I was reminded of the ability to do green screen photography when I read a blog post by Dr. Wesley Fryer. He did a green screen photo booth at the Fall Festival of the school he works at in Oklahoma. Great idea. So how do you do it? It all starts with the Green Screen app by DoInk. The rest is easy! Here’s how it works.
