"In building the “iTools for the 1 iDevice Classroom” workshop, we felt there was a great need for modeling how various game-like apps can be utilized in multiple settings (e.g. cooperative pairs, small groups, stations, whole class). We also felt very strongly that it wasn’t enough to just talk about classroom and curricular uses but to truly model and discuss how task cards and recording sheets would be used and what follow-up and extension activities would look like."

My Must-Have iPad Apps, 2011 Edition

My Must-Have iPad Apps, 2011 Edition | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"Last year, six months after the release of the original iPad, I published an article called “My Must-Have 20 iPad Apps” in which I collected my favorite iPad applications — the ones I used and enjoyed the most — as of September 2010. Fast forward thirteen months, the iPad’s software ecosystem has matured into something completely different from last year’s “experimentation” stage, when third-party developers, and quite possibly Apple as well, were still trying to figure out how, exactly, the iPad would change our digital lifestyles. Looking back to the iPad 1 and the App Store in 2010, it’s no surprise the list of apps I have today is so much different."

The Dirty Little Secret About App Review Sites | The Digital Media Diet | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

But it’s just not that simple. Here are a few things I’ve learned about the world of app reviewing:"
