10 Free Education Apps for iPad - Getting Smart

10 Free Education Apps for iPad - Getting Smart | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"One of the most popular categories of apps on any touch enabled mobile devices is obviously educational apps thanks to the real time, ready-in-hand help students get from them in and outside of their classroom. While there are millions of free educational apps, all of them are not worthy enough for downloading. Secondly, most of the top tier feature rich apps are either not free or offer a much downgraded ‘free’ version that offer a user experience far removed from what they provide in ‘paid’ version. So, finding a handful of free and useful education apps on diverse contents requires some amount of research and that is exactly what we help you to do here. Here below we are introducing 10 free education apps for iPad."

"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 | 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."

"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!"
