Kathy Schrock's Guide to Everything - Bloomin' Apps | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"I was recently reflecting on the triangular shape the Bloom's taxonomies utilize. 

Since the cognitive processes are meant to be used when necessary, and any learner goes up and down the categories as they create new knowledge, I was thinking another type of image might be more explanatory."

iMovie trailers - A Fun & Easy Icebreaker! - teachingwithipad.org | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"Here is a great ice breaker activity for you if you have a few iPads to use in your classroom.

 

You will need around one iPad per group of 2-6 students. Or, if you only have one iPad, create a trailer as a class.

 

iMovie trailers is a very fun and easy way to create awesome short videos. Your class will probably be able to finish within one to two hours."

Change the Number of Apps in the iOS Dock to Get Minimal - OSXDaily | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"The iOS Dock sits at the bottom of our iPhone, ipod touch, and iPad home screen, intended to hold the most commonly used apps for quicker launching. While it’s well known that you can customize the apps that are contained within the Dock, what’s lesser known is that you can actually reduce the number of apps visible from the 4 default, down to 3, 2, 1, and, if you really want to, 0 apps."

How to Uninstall Apps from iPhone & iPad in Seconds - OSXDaily | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"Installing apps to iOS is easily done through the App Store, but uninstalling apps from the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch is probably even easier. Yes, many users will know how to do this, but it always surprises me how many people don’t know how to remove an app from their iOS device. Fortunately, Apple has made app removal remarkably simple on the iOS platform, and it’s no exaggeration to say that you can completely uninstall an app in just a few seconds flat."

Teaching computer science - without touching a computer - The Hechinger Report

Teaching computer science - without touching a computer - The Hechinger Report | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"A group of children on a playground, each kid clutching a slip of paper with a number on it, moves along a line drawn in chalk, comparing numbers as they go and sorting themselves into ascending order from one to ten.


Another group of children, sitting in a circle, passes pieces of fruit — an apple, an orange — from hand to hand until the color of the fruit they’re holding matches the color of the T-shirt they’re wearing.

 

It may not look like it, but the children engaged in these exercises are learning computer science. In the first activity, they’ve turned themselves into a sorting network: a strategy computers use to sort random numbers into order. And in the second activity, they’re acting out the process by which computer networks route information to its intended destination.

 

Both are from a project called Computer Science Unplugged, which endeavors to teach students computer science without using computers."

How To Start Integrating Coding Into Project Based Learning | Edudemic

How To Start Integrating Coding Into Project Based Learning | Edudemic | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"True Project Based Learning (PBL) challenges students to acquire deeper knowledge of a concept by establishing connections outside their classroom. According to the research on PBL, the main tenets are to create real world connections, develop critical thinking skills, foster structured collaboration, motivate student driven work, and enable a multifaceted approach.


Similarly, coding applies all of these core tenets as programs require logical thinking, team work, a variety of tools, and – most importantly – perseverance on the part of the student. Consider the potential of applying the challenges of coding to the proven successful tenets of PBL."

The third day I was able to bring the iPad cart into the class for the first time of the year. It’s a big deal. It’s a big deal to the kids and to me as their teacher. I thought because I did this last year it would not be quite as “magical” for lack of a better word, but boy was I wrong. Their excitement was contagious. I was able to introduce the students to one of my favorite apps named Popplet. It is so simple to use but very impactful. You can use it for any content and any subject.
