How to make your iPhone photographs more powerful with negative space

How to make your iPhone photographs more powerful with negative space | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"The placement of your subject or subjects is incredibly important when it comes to creating powerful iPhone photo compositions, but just as important is everything around and between them — the negative space. We started out our iPhoneography series by introducing the rule of thirds. Now we’re going to explore that other two thirds, how it defines the forms, leads the eye, and helps create more balanced, more visually interesting work."

Apps in Education: Just a Little Shakespeare

Apps in Education: Just a Little Shakespeare | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"Some of these apps illustrate the power of the iPad. These Shakespeare in Bits are the perfect combination of cool graphics and slick infotainment that many teachers are looking for to get their students excited about their subject. The comic feel of these apps doesn't take away from the power of the message or the human tragedy of the Shakespeare texts but what it does do, is to provide an entry point for students that are not familiar with the language or the concepts."

iPads in Mathematics

iPads in Mathematics | iPads in Education | Scoop.it
"My last post focused on the state of apps related to Numeracy education and concluded that the iPad has a fair way to go in how it is being utilized to develop number skills through the current crop of Maths applications. On the whole, there are too many apps focused on rote learning and simple number facts and equations. Having said that, I actually believe the iPad has much to offer teachers and students in Mathematics. However, don’t go looking for the apps in the Education section of the App Store."
