4 Apps for Taking Notes | iPad.AppStorm

4 Apps for Taking Notes | iPad.AppStorm | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"A notepad test: take a pen and a piece of paper or notepad and write a few words or your name. Easy, isn’t it? Now what about doing that on your iPad, but add the ability to carry with you many pens and paper types, preprepared perfect shapes, highlighter pens and a virtually unlimited reference book that you could cut and paste from (the Internet). Sound a little bit better than the pad and pencil? You’d like to think so."

How to ‘UnTrust’ All Computers from iPhone & iPad - OSXDaily

How to ‘UnTrust’ All Computers from iPhone & iPad - OSXDaily | iPads in Education | Scoop.it
When you connect an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to a computer, you’ll see a familiar “Trust This Computer?” pop-up on the iOS device screen with two options “Trust” and “Don’t Trust”. If you intend to use the computer with the iOS device users will tap on “Trust”, which gives the computer access to the device. Now, given how easy it is to accidentally tap on “Don’t Trust” which can be reversed, it’s a little frustrating that there isn’t an obvious simple way to ‘UnTrust’ a computer that you accidentally trusted from the iPhone or iPad too, right? Well it turns out you can undo the ‘Trust’ selection when an iOS device is connected to a computer.

Here's How to Use the Two New iPad Multitasking Features in iOS 9 - PASTE

Here's How to Use the Two New iPad Multitasking Features in iOS 9 - PASTE | iPads in Education | Scoop.it
If you have an iPad, then you are in luck. With the iOS 9 public beta and the public release this fall, you’ll be able to take multitasking on the iPad to the next level.

Before iOS 9, multitasking on the iPad was a hassle. Users had to switch from app to app in order to get work done. Reading something in Safari and want to make notes? You needed to double tap on the Home button and then switch over the Notes app to jot them down.

Now, Apple has made it easier to do so with Split View and Slide Over.

7 Areas In Which 3D Printing Is Surprising Us All - 3DPrint.com

7 Areas In Which 3D Printing Is Surprising Us All - 3DPrint.com | iPads in Education | Scoop.it
When 3D printing was first introduced over 30 years ago it felt like something more likely to appear in a Star Trek episode than reality. Today, more companies than ever are utilizing this technology to take their concepts from the boardroom to the design table in a matter of hours.

The first step of every “solid imaging” project – as the name was originally dubbed by inventor Chuck Hull – is using 3D printing software, or computer aided design (CAD) software, to create your digital blueprint and send it off to the 3D printer to have it created layer by layer. The first thing Chuck ever printed was a tiny cup for washing the eye, something boring yet innovative in that it would spawn objects that even good ol’ Chuck probably never thought possible.

Below is a list of many of these items that can be created by a 3D printer that you wouldn’t think would be. These items were selected for this list because you’d probably not think of them as manufacturable items and because some of them cannot be produced with a single process while employing traditional manufacturing processes.

Finding purpose for 3D printers in schools - District Administration

Finding purpose for 3D printers in schools - District Administration | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"A 3D printer company with a strong education background can be invaluable to school leaders hoping to help students turn abstract concepts into working models, says Johan Broer, a MakerBot spokesman.

Each printer company has its own school-focused offerings. A hands-on learning guide and bundled kits along with a curriculum could integrate engineering concepts with core academic knowledge in science, math, art and 3D printing technology.

No matter what printer manufacturer is chosen, CIOs have to do their homework. Things to consider include:"
