Managing iPad Videos in Schools- Visual Guide for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

""Managing iPad YouTube in Schools" is a visual guide created by iPadWells 

from iPad4Schools.  


In this guide iPadWells walks teachers through the process they use in their school to create, share and teach using videos. YouTube is the principal video hosting used in this guide. That being said, it does not mean that the guide is not relevant for your teaching situation even if YuTube is banned in your school. You can still benefit from the tips and ideas provided by iPadWells on how to create enhanced videos using a wide variety of apps and share them with students who can access them at home."

The periodic table of iPad Apps - Mark Anderson's Blog | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"I was recently inspired by Sean Junkins’ (@sjunkins) periodic table of iPad Apps. I thought it was a really useful too – being able to map Apps to activities – I thought it a really helpful too. With that in mind, I wanted to be able to use it as a poster myself but whilst I thought it was great I didn’t however quite agree with some of the App choices. I wanted different categories too that related more to the use I thought would be useful in UK schools, hence I created my own version from scratch in Photoshop which I share below."

Inquiry Learning with the Stick Around App - Reversing Instruction in Social Studies

Inquiry Learning with the Stick Around App - Reversing Instruction in Social Studies | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"Back in December, Tony Vincent was kind enough and gifted me the opportunity to try out his new app called Stick Around. The Stick Around App was created as a way to create puzzles for your students or give more dynamic quizzes. Something that the students had to interact with, instead of simply writing answers down on a sheet of paper. So instead of paper, students can place tags on an image, timeline, fill in a Venn Diagram, etc until all the tags are placed. If the students get the puzzle correct, then the tags turn green and a smiley face appears. If the tags are wrong, then they turn red and have a sad face. You can have the students keep going until they get them all right with no set limit of attempts, or you can limit their attempts. "

"A QR Code is a type of barcode that is readable by dedicated QRbarcode readers and camera telephones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded may be text you want students to read, websites, or video.'

 

A very quick way to incorporate QR codes in your classroom is to simply create a QR code so students can get to a website quickly and efficiently.  How many times have you written a website on the board for your students to go to and you get 10 students saying that they can’t get to the website because they have typed it incorrectly?

They Can Text & Tweet. Can They Speak? Teaching Oral Communication Skills - Te@chThought

They Can Text & Tweet. Can They Speak? Teaching Oral Communication Skills - Te@chThought | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"“I just watched our seniors present their capstone projects. They were unimpressive presentations, to say the least. Frankly, I’m worried that they make our school look bad.”


Those were the words of the president of a small university when he called to ask me to work with his faculty. The seniors had to present their final project to classmates as well as a broader audience, including community members. The content didn’t worry the president, but the lack of effective oral communication skills certainly did. Unlike many administrators and educators, he was able to take an objective look at student performance. Among the things valued in the university’s mission statement were presentation skills, but he realized that they were only paying lip service to that goal."

But as you can see there is a Twitter feed and FaceBook addition. A blog page has instructions on ideas you can use in class. QR code cubes for selecting a reflection topic, ipad uses, instagrams 10 feet long, jigsaw puzzle makers, and on and on…

"Confession: I love my iPhone and I thought I knew how to use it, until I attended Michelle Luhtala’s latest edWebwebinar.

 

I couldn’t make the session live, but I am actually kinda glad I watched it first in archived form.  The recording allowed me to pause and take a good look at the features and functions I didn’t know I had or didn’t really know how to exploit.

 

For instance, I am now convinced that voice texting is the only way to go and I can use my flashlight and alarm clock without unlocking. But that’s only the tip of the iPhone!"
