"We came across this cool little app for dissecting frogs without the blood and guts. The virtual frog dissection biology app is a great alternative or supplement to traditional frog dissections in biology classrooms. It features dissection tools like pins, markers, scissors, scalpels and forceps, and has detailed labels and information on frog classification and their life-cycle. It also has a quiz section and works on iPads, desktops, laptops, netbooks and interactive whiteboards."
T"The device does matter! It seems like every school considering a 1:1 program or every pundit talking about implementing a 1:1 program attempts to make the politically correct statement that the device doesn't matter, instead insisting what really matters is what you do with the device."
"As a follow up to my post, Whatever Happened to iBooks????, I thought a lot about how iBooks and the Camera may be two of the most powerful apps on the iPad, and yet the most under appreciated. In many ways, they are essentially “invisible apps.”
"Getting your contacts into the Mail App - The built in Mail App on the iPad doesn't automatically fill in contact addresses. You can fix that by adding your email account as a Microsoft Exchange account (rather than as a Gmail account)."
"In a three-part series of articles, we are going to share how use of the iPad and other tablets can be maximized in multiple contexts: learning with the iPad, teaching with the iPad, and leading with the iPad. "
"Here is a list of some of the apps that I use in the classroom and a brief description. Future blog posts will contain more in-depth insight into these apps. The apps have been grouped into specific categories:"
"iOS 6 has finally arrived and all the tech press will be ranting and raving about Siri improvements, Passbook, Apple’s new maps and whatever Android has that Apple hasn’t done yet. I’m more interested in improvements that have gone largely unnoticed that mean a better experience in a school environment, especially one like mine where we are using iPads in a shared device situation."
While using an iPad with a projector seems like an after-thought for Apple, you just need to use the right projector. Epson’s MegaPlex MG-50 not only can hold and charge the pad as it puts selected items on the screen...
"The new school I am at is about to roll out several iPad carts. It is all very glamorous and exciting. However, before we unleash them onto the greater community we need to think through how to set them up, how students will use them, and what safety features to lock down etc... We also wanted to come up with applications that would be useful on all of the devices regardless of grade. What follows is my recommended list for deployment. By the way, all of these apps are free. I've an inherited weakness for freebies."
"While Albert Einstein's genius isn't included, an exclusive iPad application launched Tuesday promises to make detailed images of his brain more accessible to scientists than ever before. Teachers, students and anyone who's curious also can get a look."
"Apple has updated the Apple TV software to version 5.1, bringing along with it support for the new Shared Photo Streams introduced in iOS 6, as well as iTunes Account Sharing and other goodies, reports MacRumors."
Are you looking for an alternative to Apple’s YouTube iPad app, which the company removed from iOS 6? Then look no further: An independent iOS developer just published a new iPad app called Jasmine that offers all you need, and then some.
"This blog post is inspired by John Richards and an idea he shared on our community forum. John has a great deal of knowledge and pushes Camtasia Studio, often using it in creative ways with other products and services. We thank him for sharing! In this post I took his method of combining Camtasia videos and an iOS app called GoodReader to make them available offline, while still maintaining the interactivity present in the TechSmith Smart Player."
"Well, what if I told you that Wolfram|Alpha also makes desktop PC and mobile applications that, for all of the notoriety that their’s websites received, I’ve hardly ever heard anyone talk about? And what if I told you that most of these apps were specifically designed with certain subjects in mind, such as statistics, geography, and chemistry? I don’t know about you, but I’d be intrigued!"
