Because it is part of the world we live in. It is not the only part but still needs to be seen that way and we need to recognize challenges and opportunities.

My Top 5 Lesson Activities using iPad of 2014 - December 2014 Post

My Top 5 Lesson Activities using iPad of 2014 - December 2014 Post | iPads in Mind | Scoop.it

As the year comes to an end I thought I would share some of my favourite iPad activities from this year. It was a difficult decision to narrow it down to five but here goes:

 

1.Towards the end of last year my school celebrated it's 150 year anniversary and we carried many activities with the pupils that term looking at the history of the school. One of the activities was to compare then and now photos. We use an app called InstaShake HD App https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/instashake-hd/id595411264?mt=8&uo=4&at=11lIT4  to blend two photos together in different ways. We also carried out this activity during the recent World War 1 week at the school.

 

2. Last term I worked with a PE department to use the iPads to support GCSE students portfolios. One of the activities was to record video of sporting skills from different angles using the iPad's camera and then add the videos into iMovie app to use some of it's features such as split screen, freeze frame and the speed tool. More detail on this can be found here http://sco.lt/8hTUhd   ;

 

3. Early this term I began an activity with Year 6 pupils to gamify stories using Book Creator App We used the hyperlink tool within Book Creator to link text and images to different pages and give the reader options of where the story went by choosing options within a scenario. More detail can be found here http://www.redjumper.net/blog/2014/12/using-non-linear-stories-gamify-books/

 

4. In summer term I worked with a Year 3 class to use the time lapse feature in I Can Animate App https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/i-can-animate/id399760501?mt=8&uo=4&at=11lIT4  ; to capture shadows moving across the playground. We set the iPad up to take a photograph every minute from 9am-3pm. Recently Apple have added the time lapse tool into the iOS 8 camera, although you cannot adjust the time between photos like you can in I Can Animate.

 

5. A few months ago Comic Life 3 App https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/comic-life-3/id891378056?mt=8&uo=4&at=11lIT4  was released and within the many new templates is a newspaper front cover. We used this at school to firstly produce a weekly newspaper for the school news with Year 6 but also during World War 1 week to reproduce historical newspaper front pages of significant events during war.

 

A big thank you to all the great feedback to Teacher Guide to iPad App. Hearing how much it has helped teachers worldwide has made all the hard work worthwhile. The latest update brings a new icon, new categories of subjects and apps, a new design and 12 new ideas. Details can be found at www.ipadteachers.co.uk

 

Wishing everyone a merry Christmas and best wishes for 2015!

Why is My Teen So Forgetful? - An Ethical Island

Why is My Teen So Forgetful? - An Ethical Island | iPads in Mind | Scoop.it
"David Wilcox, of Musings on the Middle Years of Education, http://bit.ly/1cWl2of ; and I have worked together to create an infographic about the teen brain. It is based on a blog post he wrote over a year ago (Click here for that post) http://davidw.edublogs.org/2012/10/15/forgetfulness-in-teens/ to tackle the issue of Why Teens Forget. Through lots of research, checking facts, and rechecking facts, we have found that teens forgetfulness may be due to major changes in their brain. These changes can last into the college years. While there is research that demonstrates the increased forgetfulness of “teens,” we also found that research suggests this time period is an awesome explosion of learning and discovery that takes them into adulthood."

What's not to love about this tool? Nothing.... Teacher's of all ages can appreciate the tiresome tradition of late night grade-a-thons. This just might help make quizzes a more pleasant experience. At least for the instructors.
