36 Math Apps For Elementary School Students From edshelf - TeachThought

36 Math Apps For Elementary School Students From edshelf - TeachThought | ipads educational apps | Scoop.it

"As more classrooms adopt mobile devices such as iPads, teachers and technology integrators are faced with the question: “What apps do I install?”

 

That is quite a hefty question too. There are over 90,000 iOS apps in the Education category of the App Store. Since apps that teachers can use fall into other categories too, the number of choices is well above 100,000. Does your head hurt yet?"

How The iPad Can Promote The Development Of Non-Cognitive Skills

How The iPad Can Promote The Development Of Non-Cognitive Skills | ipads educational apps | Scoop.it

"Although there are many reasons to use the iPads in the classroom, the development of noncognitive skills is one the educators should consider as well with the implementation of the device. Since the early 1980s, educators and employers across many disciplines have stressed the importance of noncognitive skills although the focus of most educational research has been dedicated to the relationship between cognitive skills and student achievement.

 

However, recent studies have demonstrated that noncognitive skills might be as important – or even more so – as cognitive skills in determining educational outcomes. Howard Gardner has gone even further by suggesting that in an increasingly interdependent globalized world “our survival […] may depend on the cultivation of this pentad of mental dispositions.”"

Create Engaging Green Screen Video Projects

Create Engaging Green Screen Video Projects | ipads educational apps | 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.

‘Makerspaces’ for science instruction also proving helpful for English learners

‘Makerspaces’ for science instruction also proving helpful for English learners | ipads educational apps | Scoop.it

"Educators are finding that the new “makerspace” movement – a strategy to teach K-12 students science, math and technology through hands-on activities – is providing the added benefit of helping English learners become more proficient in the language.

In makerspaces, students gather a few times a week in a separate classroom, library or museum for a group project using such technologies and materials as 3D printing, robotics, microprocessors, textiles, wood and wires to construct robots and other electronic gadgets. The teaching technique has been around since the early 2000s, and educators have applauded the idea for helping teach science, especially at a time when California and other states are phasing in the Next Generation Science Standards, which emphasize practical application of science over rote learning.

But now experts are also seeing makerspaces as a valuable tool for helping improve English, as children talk through their work in teams and keep journals to record their progress."
