App Shopper: Science Vocabulary (Education)

App Shopper: Science Vocabulary (Education) | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"This app is designed for students aged 8 – 11 years old. Vocabulary instruction is important to a student’s science learning. When teaching science vocabulary, you are actually teaching important concepts. Research shows that knowledge of science related vocabulary is related to reading comprehension and school success in general. Building vocabulary will help integrate the science content with other content areas and help increase student achievement."

Apps in Education: Great Apps for Toddler Learning | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"People are always happy to talk to you about the apps that their kids love and come back to again and again. Over the weekend I was able to talk to a number of mums who gave me a series of apps that their littles one play. There are a number of really interesting apps here, some I would have thought were too complex for toddlers, but the mums say their little ones spend ages trying to get a handle on them. Have a look and see what you think."

The Nerdy Teacher: Using My iPad in the Classroom This Year (Redux) #edchat

The Nerdy Teacher: Using My iPad in the Classroom This Year (Redux) #edchat | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"Two years ago today, I wrote a post about how I was going to use my iPad in the classroom. It was simply titled "Using My iPad in the Classroom This Year". To my surprise, it is my most visited post of all time with over 37,000 page views. That is about 20,000 more than my second most read post. I thought it would be fun to do an updated post having used the iPad in my class for two years. Now that I have a class set of iPads, the number of apps that I use or will be using has changed and I thought I would share that with everyone.."

Get Ready as Seven Poets and the Assassin’s Secret, a Real-time Serial Novel, Comes to the iPad | PadGadget | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"Though my tendency to scan the app store for unusual offerings borders on obsessive, I can honestly that I’ve never seen an app like Seven Poets and the Assassin’s Secret before. This cross-the-pond partnership should be a match made in heaven blending Edmund Pevensey’s obvious Anglophilia with Inkle’s sharp design aesthetic. I am hopeful that the app will live up to its promise as “a new form of storytelling.”"

AppAdvice App Of The Week For August 27, 2012 -- AppAdvice

AppAdvice App Of The Week For August 27, 2012 -- AppAdvice | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"One of our staff’s ubiquitous favorite apps is Drafts, which was originally only on the iPhone. We love it because it’s a fantastic way to quickly jot down whatever bits of text we may need, and then send it off to other apps or take other actions with it. Think of it as a “Launch Center for text.” Last week, our friends at Agile Tortoise gave the iPhone version a major 2.0 update, and also brought us a new treat: Drafts for iPad."
