Using Scratch in Digital Learning Strategies - Teacher Calder

Using Scratch in Digital Learning Strategies - Teacher Calder | iPads in Education | Scoop.it
We needed something to get our class back working together as a cohesive unit today. Yesterday we had an amazingly awful run of things trying to get text-to-speech tools installed and running on all students devices. It was chaotic, crazy and frustrating for many of us.

We had planned on starting with Scratch next Monday, but needed something exciting and fun to end the week on a positive note. Wow, did that plan work!

18 Apps That Will Inspire Creativity In Your Everyday Life - Huffington Post

18 Apps That Will Inspire Creativity In Your Everyday Life - Huffington Post | iPads in Education | Scoop.it
Mobile devices like iPads and Androids have transformed the way we experience boredom. No longer is a wayward commuter forced to play Snake or Tetris, occupying themselves in a hardly satisfying, and utterly pixelated virtual reality. The tablet or smart phone-wielding travelers can now immerse themselves in an entire library of art and culture-related distractions, finding solace in everything from a Vincent van Gogh game to a digital version of the Louvre.

Just this week, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a 140-year-old cultural stalwart of New York City, went the way of the future and introduced an iPhone app. Described as "exceedingly simple and modest" by Forbes, the move to make art more accessible is something we can't help but love. So, in the spirit of the Met's 21st century attitude, we've put together a list of mobile museums and art-honoring programs that will spark creativity in your everyday life.

Behold, 18 apps every creative and artist type should download now:

Teaching iPad Videography From 3800 Miles Away - Speed of Creativity @wfryer

Teaching iPad Videography From 3800 Miles Away - Speed of Creativity @wfryer | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"Friday I had an opportunity to share a videoconference about iPad Videography from my home in Oklahoma City with a group of about 15 homeschoolers in Nenana, Alaska, which is almost 4000 miles away.

 

It blows my mind that it’s possible to teach and share like this.

I posted the recorded audio from the session to my “Fuel for Educational Change Agents” secondary podcast channel. In the session I introduced participants to the use of the free “YouTube Capture” app for trimming videos, making video collages by combining clips, adding copyright-friendly music clips to videos, and publishing to YouTube. I also introduced the basics of using the iMovie for iPad app. I created a Google Doc of referenced links for the session, which included the “Quick Edit Video” page of Mapping Media, and the “Quick Edit Videography” webpage from my August 2014 iPad Media Camp curriculum wiki.

 

A full list of the 14 different workshops I offer via videoconference through the CILC is available, including my newest addition: “Minecraft and MinecraftEDU in the Classroom.” "

A New Poster on Integrating SAMR Model with iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A New Poster on Integrating SAMR Model with iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads in Education | Scoop.it
This is the second article I posted here on SAMR iPad apps in less than two weeks. Why? I love SAMR and I find it a very good pedagogical framework that teachers can draw on to not only integrate technology into their instruction but also assess the efficiency of this technology. And since iPad is a leitmotif in  today's learning, its alignment with SAMR model will definitely assist teachers in making the most of the educational potential of this versatile device. To this end , I am sharing with you this wonderful illustrative chart I stumbled upon on Apps in Education.

"SAMR model is a conceptual framework developed by  Dr. Ruben Puentedura to help you better integrate technology in your instruction. SAMR stands for Substitution, Augmentation, Modification and Redefinition. Each of these four levels correspond with a set of tech-based activities and learning tasks. The strength of SAMR model is that it provides teachers with a robust method to gauge and assess the efficacy of the technology they and their students use in class. Check out this section for more resources on  SAMR."

Math is Harder When Using an iPad ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog

Math is Harder When Using an iPad ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog | iPads in Education | Scoop.it
I do not use a lot of worksheets in my math program. So much so, that last week, I gave a worksheet during math to my grade 2 students to do and one of my students cheered. CHEERED! For a worksheet! I asked the child in my class why she cheered. I figured that she would have responded with, "I like worksheets." If she had answered that way, I would have been fine with that. I believe that we all have our own learning preferences and some children enjoy doing worksheets. However I would never have anticipated what she said to me. She responded with,


"I like doing worksheets better than using the iPads because I don't have to think as much."

8 Ways to Prioritize Learning When Using Technology in the Classroom - Mind/Shift

8 Ways to Prioritize Learning When Using Technology in the Classroom - Mind/Shift | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"As technology takes hold in the classroom, educators are constantly shifting tactics, experimenting with new tools, and trying to connect with students. That’s far easier said than done, but effective teachers know that education at its best is a human endeavor. What technology can do, as Laura Moorhead writes for the TED blog, is support teachers as they push students to problem-solve, discover information on their own, and make meaning out of the world around them. "

(Rethinking) Makerspaces — @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch

(Rethinking) Makerspaces — @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"Kids have always made in my library.


We encouraged digital and visual and dramatic and rhetorical creativity before, during, and after school.  But for a while, I’ve questioned the value of using already heavily used real estate to randomly carve out space for a 3D printer, electronics stations and sewing machines. I had my doubts about the makerspace movement in school libraries.

 

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to chat with Amos Blanton, project manager of the Scratch online community, and a member of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at MIT Media Lab.  On his profile Amos notes:  I design and sustain creative learning environments for people with agency.


Amos makes the case for makerspaces as powerful, authentic, relevant learning experiences, and for when and why library may be the very right space to create a makerspace."
