Space Station Commander Chris Hadfield Recorded ‘Space Oddity’ Using GarageBand On His iPad! [Updated] | Cult of Mac

Space Station Commander Chris Hadfield Recorded ‘Space Oddity’ Using GarageBand On His iPad! [Updated] | Cult of Mac | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"By now, you’ve probably see Commander Chris Hadfield’s tear-jerking farewell to the International Space Station: a cover of David Bowie’s classic space song, Space Oddity, filmed and performed by Hadfield himself in zero-g. In case you haven’t, we’ve embedded it above: it’s hard not to be proud of humanity after watching it.

 

But do you know how Hadfield actually recorded it? With his iPad, of course."

Have You Tried The Aurasma App? ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"I went to Edcamp Detroit last weekend and Erin Klein shared a free app that she has used in her classroom with a lot of success.  The app is called Aurasma.  The app allows individuals to create and publish their own augmented reality experiences they call "Auras."  I'm sure you are thinking the same thing I was thinking when Erin was talking about this app, "Sounds cool, but what does it do?"  Students and teachers can make lessons come alive with this platform.  It is difficult to explain so I will explain it step by step, then show you what it looks like in action."

For those of you that do not know the app, it is a very basic app but has become very popular with my students. Basically, 4 pics are displayed and the player must link them all with one word. Easy!"

How to Open Zip Files & Extract Archives on the iPhone & iPad

How to Open Zip Files & Extract Archives on the iPhone & iPad | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"If you’ve ever run into a .zip file on an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad you will probably have discovered it’s a bit of a dead-end initially, because by default there isn’t much you can do with zips or any other archive format. That doesn’t mean you can’t open ZIP files though, and in fact these archives can be viewed, unzipped, and opened in iOS with relative ease, but you will need to download a free third party app before you’ll have the function included on your device. This will allow you view all of the contents of any zip file quickly, and also decompress the entire archive, or just extract a single file from a larger archive, providing quick access to the zip contents which can be saved locally or opened in another application of choice."

I wish when I was in high school I was more encouraged to learn math, science and computer science. And more girls are needed in this field.
Jenn Alevy's curator insight, May 14, 2013 11:04 PM

For some reason computer programing as a career seemed to take a back seat to other math/science/computer careers, esp.during the late 90s. Now it is time to get back to that, a million programers needed in the next 10 years is a great opportunity for many kids, I hope they do more to target more girls, not just boys.
