Quickly Take Pictures with iPad by Accessing Camera from the Lock Screen

Quickly Take Pictures with iPad by Accessing Camera from the Lock Screen | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"The lock screen camera is one of the more handy features of the iPhone, but the iPad does not have that same quick-to-access camera option. That doesn’t mean you can’t take pictures directly from the lock screen on the iPad, you just have to use Siri to launch directly into the camera app from the lock screen instead:"

The iPad and Digital Publishing: Web Apps | iPad.AppStorm | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"In 2007, the world was a different place. The App Store didn’t exist yet, and the iPhone had just been announced. Steve Jobs wanted consumers to fill their iPhones with web apps. Before they debuted the App Store, Apple tried to prove that web apps could be as easy to use and as responsive as native apps. Although web apps didn’t succeed the way Jobs originally intended them to, that doesn’t mean they’re not worth exploring."

Accompagner les enseignants dans leur appropriation des outils techniques. Bien entendu, ce ne sont que des outils, mais utiliser le bon outil permet d'augmenter l'efficacité ! Il en est de même pour les enseignats, comme des chirurgiens !

The SAMR Ladder Through the Lens of 21st Century Skills - Getting Smart

The SAMR Ladder Through the Lens of 21st Century Skills - Getting Smart | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"This summer I have been digging deeper into the SAMR  model of tech integration to help educators embrace 1:1 learning and the changes it will bring about. SAMR is a truly useful tool for helping teachers identify their current comfort zone in order to build expertise in designing efficient and effective student learning experiences. To reach higher levels on the SAMR ladder, teachers can make some planning and instructional shifts. A look at the big picture is helpful when trying to understand how to help students develop important 21st Century Skills at each level."

Storytelling for YouTube Generation ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"Below is an interesting Prezi presentation http://bit.ly/13lZBKr that I came across while I was browsing my Twitter feeds. This work has been realized by Steve Dembo and features some of the ways YouTube is being used for storytelling. I know YouTube is regrettably blocked in many schools here in Canada and also in the States and I really hope that whoever in charge of decision making in these countries would get their eyes open to the fact that they are wasting many learning opportunities for students."

A Fabulous Flow Chart on How Students Should Use Images from The Web ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Fabulous Flow Chart on How Students Should Use Images from The Web ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"Using multimedia is part and parcel of students work in the classroom. Several classroom projects now include curating resources, using images and videos. However, the use of such media materials is regulated and does require complying by certain rules and guidelines. The wrong idea that many of our students hold about using media in class must change. They need to learn that something being accessible, downloadable and free does not mean it is ok to use it with no restrictions.

For instance, when using images and pictures from the web, students need to learn how to properly give credit to their owners. The graphic below is a wonderful flow chart created byddd to help teachers teach their students about how to properly credit images they use. Enjoy"
