Writing with iPads 2: Putting Words on "Paper"

Writing with iPads 2: Putting Words on "Paper" | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"INTRODUCTION: In Writing with iPads 1: Brainstorming & Organizing,  I covered how to get kids to start thinking about writing – topics and ideas to start those wheels turning, and then how to organize some of those ideas, whether with a traditional mindmap, or with little post-it notes that could be rearranged.  This section will describe some apps which can be used to actually get words onto paper (such as it is…), and allow editing.  Aside from Dragon Dictation, they all provide basically the same functions: writing and editing with the ability to save into Google Drive.  You need to play around with each one and determine which one suits you best."

Apple highlights iPads in Massachusetts classrooms

Apple highlights iPads in Massachusetts classrooms | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"Anyone who's still wondering if iPads are truly an educational tool should check out the video Apple has posted highlighting the use of iPads in Burlington High, a public Massachusetts high school. The four-minute video spotlights much of what you would expect to see from Apple: teachers speaking about the benefits of the iPad in the classroom and shots of students using the iPad. But the most poignant moments come when administrators discuss the amount of money spent on single-purpose technology in the past."

Read.It! on the iPad, all the news that matters through Scoop.it | iGo With My iPad | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

:"Read.it! is Scoop.It for the iPad, but not like the iPhone version. Huh?

The Scoop.it service allows you to pull together news feeds of content that is popular around the social network world. The system makes it easy to share out what you find to other people that might find the same interesting. The Web site and the iPhone app do this. But, the new Read.it! iPad Free app is positioned more towards building category groups of news so that you can get to what you find interesting, quickly!"

A Great List of 70+ iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Great List of 70+ iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"iPad Academy featured a curated list of some great iPad apps for both teachers and students. I have gone through this list and found it really interesting and definitely worth sharing with you here. The list contains more than 70 iPad apps with a short description of each app  together with the link leading to the iTune page where you can download it . You probably are already familiar with some of the apps you will find in it because we have already featured many of them in previous posts here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning but to have all of them gathered in one place  and accessible from one single platform is really awesome."

Donald Clark Plan B: BYOD: 7 reasons to leave them to their own devices

Donald Clark Plan B: BYOD: 7 reasons to leave them to their own devices | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"BYOD isn’t a recommendation, it’s a realty. Everyone’s bought one and everyone uses one and everyone carries it around with them. When we organise a meeting or conference, we don’t send people an email telling them what device to bring, neither do we buy or lease a whole load of computers and hand them out. In our Universities few want to revive those expensive projects where every student was given a laptop or iPad. They bring their own."

Educreations in #PhysEd | Apps, Pedagogy

Educreations in #PhysEd | Apps, Pedagogy | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"Last week I was introduced to the App “Educreations”. This App is an amazing tool to bring into your classroom and/or gymnasium. Available on the iPad, Educreations allows a teacher to teach from a less direct style of teaching and even gives the students a chance to flip the class themselves. From their tables and desks, in small groups within the gymnasium or outside in the yard, Educreations allows students to create content for their peers independently from the teacher. This allows students to take turns sitting in the “teacher driver seat” all while working in small groups (which increases individual participation). "
