A Comprehensive List of Apps and Tools to Flip your Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Comprehensive List of Apps and Tools to Flip your Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"A flipped classroom is sometimes the best teaching/learning model some teachers have to use with  their students. The use of technology in a flipped classroom should never be regarded as a supplicant of the teacher but only a complimentary element that increases students learning outcomes.  I have talked a lot and in more details about the flipped classroom and have also devoted an entire section here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning for tutorials, guides, and presentations on the use of a flipped learning methodology."

Using QR Codes to Differentiate Instruction

Using QR Codes to Differentiate Instruction | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"An expectation of the Common Core Learning Standards is that teachers differentiate their instruction to meet the needs of all children. This includes special education and general education students, as well as English-Language Learners. One of my favorite technology tools, the QR code, can be used to meet the needs of a variety of students in one classroom. Teachers can create QR codes for differentiated instruction activities."

"

Remixing is the art of taking two or more pieces of music and combining them together into a new creative tune. Some remixes even become more popular than the originals.

 

The culture of remixing is growing. It has even spread to videos. As a vehicle for self-expression, it is one that many teens and young adults have taken to en masse."

iOS 7 Battery Life Draining Too Fast? It’s Easy to Fix

iOS 7 Battery Life Draining Too Fast? It’s Easy to Fix | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"Some users are finding that updating to iOS 7 seems to have reduced the battery life of their iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. Battery issues are often reported with major iOS updates, but this time around the culprits of newfound battery drain are easier to identify, because much of it relates directly to some new features and new control mechanisms built into the new iOS release. Fortunately, this makes for easy identification and easy remedies, so if you’re encountering any issues with battery life not living up to your expectations, you can probably resolve the draining issues quickly with a few settings adjustments."

Theophilus's curator insight, March 19, 2014 4:03 AM

What I like about this idea is the centrality of learning as opposed to the centrality of the device. We've discovered that sharing a device have far-reaching and positive possibilities for networking, interaction, teamwork and collaboration in the formal learning environment. OLPC is an example of a notion that goes the other way - individualism, not to mention, the complexities when trying to enable young learners to focus.

The Future of Education: BYOD in the Classroom | Innovation Insights | Wired.com | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"As children across the nation return to school, many are going armed with their own computational tools. From laptops to tablets and smartphones, schools and universities across the globe are testing out a more dynamic learning environment, where students bring and use their choice of technologically assistive devices in the classroom. Despite the obvious benefits, the influx of mobile technology in educational systems has also provoked backlash from parents and teachers alike, similar to the BYOD backlash witnessed within enterprise IT departments in the past few years.

 

Educational institutions are ultimately presented two options: adopt a BYOD program, embracing the technology trend, encouraging student participation, and expanding curriculum to include BYOD-driven topics, or to impose of a BYOD policy, setting rules to govern the presence and practice of these potentially disruptive devices."

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 24, 2013 5:44 PM

Interesting that some Silicon Valley inventors of Apple I-pad  choose to send their children to Waldorf Schools that do not embrace computers. Why? The outcomes of hours spent in front of computer screens for developing brains has not been identified clearly in terms of long term effects. I believe that a good teacher who empowers her students to learn can do so without technology, I am speaking here of elementary schools where most students are gaining literacy that can be applied in any medium a little later. Let's restrict their use in kindergartens and primary schools to be on the safe side.

I do have a separate section here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning where I have been featuring a plethora of video tools . But today's collection is somehow different not only because it contains the cream of the crop but also because these tools are all web based.

All of the web tools below do not require any software installation and you can work on them right from your browser. I am pretty sure you will find them very useful particularly  when working on video projects with your students. Please have a look and share with us if we have missed any important title. Enjoy!"
