8 Things to Look for in An Educational App ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

8 Things to Look for in An Educational App ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | ipads in education K-6 + BYOT | Scoop.it

Picking up the right educational apps to recommend to your students and kids is not an easy task.There are several criterion you need to consider before you can comfortably claim that an app is educational or not. Of course there are no hard and fast rules to follow to be a good app reviewer and app reviewing is not an established science with clear boundaries but what we talk about here are simple conventions. These conventions are developed by experienced educators who , out of their long experience with app reviewing , have developed a sense of what works and what does not for educational settings. Experience here is very important because sometimes people learn more through experience than through formal instruction.

34 Diverse Blended Learning Apps For iPad

34 Diverse Blended Learning Apps For iPad | ipads in education K-6 + BYOT | Scoop.it

Blended learning is a potentially powerful way of mixing the power of asynchronous access with face-to-face facilitation and instruction.

It’s this mixing of old and new that makes it tempting for many schools and districts wanting to dip their toes in the water of eLearning and far-reaching technology access while still depending on the expertise and training of human teachers.

But it’s this combination–and subsequent flexibility–that also makes it a challenge to setup. There is the matter of aligning operating systems (Windows, iOS, Android, etc.), available bandwidth, technology access, learning management systems, apps, hardware, and more.

Simon Crook's Learning Blog: Bunsen Burners, Flame Tests and iPads with Years 4 & 5

Simon Crook's Learning Blog: Bunsen Burners, Flame Tests and iPads with Years 4 & 5 | ipads in education K-6 + BYOT | Scoop.it
Recently, as a favour to a local primary principal (and to fulfil my own need to teach some science), I ran a day of science lessons for Years 4 and 5. As a wonderful example of cooperation, the neighbouring secondary school had provided the primary school with access to a science lab for the year. Having the unique opportunity to use secondary science equipment with primary students I set  about designing a fun and worthwhile hour to be repeated with the four classes.

17 Fun Tools To Teach Kids To Code by @ChrisBetcher

17 Fun Tools To Teach Kids To Code by @ChrisBetcher | ipads in education K-6 + BYOT | Scoop.it

There are many benefits to teaching young people to code.   As a musician starts learning a piece of music,  the process can be daunting.   Musicians, however, naturally start breaking the song into parts.   By slowly mastering small phrases, scales, chords, and patterns, the song slowly emerges from the student.   The discipline of decomposition and persistence shows up in computer programming too.
