Apps that rise to the top: Tested and approved by teachers - Mind/Shift

Apps that rise to the top: Tested and approved by teachers - Mind/Shift | iPads for Teaching, Learning and Productivity | Scoop.it
With the thousands of educational apps vying for the attention of busy teachers, it can be hard to sift for the gold. Michelle Luhtala, a savvy librarian from New Canaan High School in Connecticut has crowd-sourced the best, most extensive list of appsvoted on by educators around the country. “I wanted to make sure we had some flexibility because there’s no one app that’s better than all the others,” Luhtala said. Some apps are best for younger students, others are more complicated, better suited for high school students. Many apps do one thing really well, but aren’t great at everything. Still others are bought, redesigned or just disappear — so it’s always good to know about an array of tools to suit the need at hand.

"Looking for a GREAT presentation app for your iPad? Check out Haiku Deck. It’s a great way to create a quick presentation using the IPad!  I’m already loving how easy it is to use.  I love that you can import a pic or snap one right around you, and add it right to your slides.  It speaks to the visual learner inside me.

 

Here are a few ideas of using Haiku Deck in education…"

Apps and Sites That Work on All Devices for BYOT

Apps and Sites That Work on All Devices for BYOT | iPads for Teaching, Learning and Productivity | Scoop.it

"“Honestly, I think we should be delighted people still want to read, be it on a Kindle or a Nook or whatever the latest device is.” By J.K. Rowling

With more and more schools launching, ‘Bring Your Own Technology’ or ‘Bringing Your Own Device’ (BYOT/BYOD) I created a symbaloo of all apps and web tools that work on all devices to help educators get started. Even though I am a firm believe, it doesn’t matter what site/app the students use to show mastery of a concept, some educators need a starting place and many have loved this symbaloo so I, of course, want to pass it along."

BYOT is a bit of a sticky wicket, but with proper planning, and an awareness of the differences of devices, it can be a reasonable and cost-effective alternative to a 1:1.

iPadagogy: appropriating the iPad within pedagogical contexts

iPadagogy: appropriating the iPad within pedagogical contexts | iPads for Teaching, Learning and Productivity | Scoop.it

This paper critiques eight m-learning projects, including four m-learning projects using iPads in 2010 followed by a further four iPad projects in 2011. Using an action research methodology, the authors explore the impact of the integration of the m-learning projects on the pedagogical approaches of these courses. The eight iPad projects present different approaches to the integration of the iPad within a variety of educational contexts. The projects were informed by six critical success factors identified from thirty m-learning projects between 2006 and 2010, and illustrate the potential for the iPad to become a pedagogical game changer.

TouchCast: An Exciting New iPad Tool to Create Wildly Interactive Videos | Wired Educator | iPads for Teaching, Learning and Productivity | Scoop.it

"TouchCast is an exciting new tool that combines video and the web in amazingly new interactive ways that I have never before seen. I believe TouchCast could be an exciting new for educators and students.

 

The ability to move and interact with the content on the screen during the video reminds me of the user interface used in the movie Minority Report. Very creative ability to both create and interact with various content. You can just tell when an app fully uses the capabilities of the iPad and TouchCast is one of those amazing apps that gets it right."

Creating Music with iPads - iPad and Technology in Music Education

Creating Music with iPads  - iPad and Technology in Music Education | iPads for Teaching, Learning and Productivity | Scoop.it

"One area that I don’t have time to explore very often during the school year is creating music on my iPad. It seems with all the day to day activities of teaching that I totally loose touch with musical explorations and composing. I’ve been taking more time lately to do this and I am floored at what I can do with an iPad and a few apps. I am not going to give you a history lesson here but I will say that at one time in my career I dreamed of creating a wonderful MIDI lab outfitted with computers, keyboards, speakers and mixers for my students to use. That dream never happened because of the crazy cost involved. My dream has been reshaped. Here is what I’ve found…."

Wonderful technological developments, making music creating accessbile and engaging for everyone.

Cristian Barkan's curator insight, December 9, 2013 12:10 PM

I think this is pretty cool, if you have a iPad you can make music by just downloading apps.  You can take a iPad anywhere, you can be bored, or sitting somewhere ust waiting and  you can just pulled out your ipad and start making music and that is of course if you are into music.

Alanis Tittemore's curator insight, December 7, 2014 1:27 PM

The involvement the Apple products has had in the music industry is just amazing. In Mr. Shimmons article, he mentions all the new apps created to make music that sounds somewhat professional at a very low to no cost. This news all that bad considering now humans can teach the youth how to compose music and possibly make it easier to learn instruments. However, it is becoming a growing problem for the industry itself because everyone wants to be their 'own producer' and people are paying less for record labels.

It is interesting to reflect how this simplification of iPad key tools has changed in a relatively short space of time. iWork suite aside, you could purchase the above apps for less than the cost of a textbook and have a model that could enhance learning with the right application."

another uuseful research about iPads in the classroom. Gives an insight of erent experience,

I specially liked the words:

“No technology has an impact on learning in its own right; rather, its impact depends on how it is used… The question that should be asked is not ‘Can iPads support learning?’ but rather ‘How can iPads be used to support collaborative learning, or exploratory learning’, or whatever…”

"We all panic when our iPad starts acting up, well no wonder its costly. But sometimes the source of the panic can be dealt with using  some simple tips. Other times prevention is better than cure, in other words, instead of waiting till our iPad gets "cranky" then start looking how to fix it, we can prevent such mishaps with proper usage."
