Why AppleTV & iPad beats Interactive Whiteboard….every time.

Why AppleTV & iPad beats Interactive Whiteboard….every time. | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

Lets compare these two devices in terms of function, cost, and extras. I will look at what the devices do similarily, how much the average cost is for the devices, and what other advantages one tool might have over the other, and then you decide!

I agree on all counts. We are using Apple TV aon the HS level and it's faster connectivity with more functionality.

Niels Jakob Pasgaard's comment, January 22, 2013 2:17 AM
I agree, that the iPad/AppleTV combination is better than the IWB. However, I don’t think any of them are of great value when it comes to the learning outcome.

Give each student the opportunity to bring their own device instead.
Leanna K Johnson's comment, January 22, 2013 10:39 AM
Niels, I also allow students to use their own devices or incorporate them into our activities. But they must be able to adapt themselves. The sharing of this idea is for the purpose of comparative outcomes.

Two Great Tools for Creating Interactive Timelines ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it
n today’s post I am sharing with you two important web tools that you can use with students in class to create interactive timelines. These timelines can include a wide variety of multimedia materials including: text, images, video, maps and many more. And in the case of Silk, there is even the possibility to invite collaborators to help with editing. Also, both of these apps are available for iPad users.

Superior Alternatives to Boring Stock iPhone Apps - Lifehacker

Superior Alternatives to Boring Stock iPhone Apps - Lifehacker | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

- With every iteration of iOS, Apple tweaks its software a little, but for the most part, the default lineup of apps has remained unchanged since launch. For a lot of us, these apps just aren't cutting it anymore. Here are the best apps to replace them.

The design and function of many of Apple's apps is beginning to feel a bit stale, and many people are growing dissatisfied with the experience as a whole. On top of that, many of the apps lock you into Apple's data ecosystem and iCloud. However, plenty of superior replacements exist for Apple's stock apps. From Maps to Mail, we've got you covered with better options.

15+ Ways of Teaching Every Student to Code (Even Without a Computer) - Edutopia

15+ Ways of Teaching Every Student to Code (Even Without a Computer) - Edutopia | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"According to Code.org, 90 percent of U.S. schools are not teaching any computer science. Eyebrows have been raised this year as the U.K. passed a plan to educate every child how to code.

 

In my opinion, parents of every student in every school at every level should demand that all students be taught how to code. They don't need this skill because they'll all go into it as a career -- that isn't realistic -- but because it impacts every career in the 21st century world. Any country recognizing that will benefit in the long term. Here's how you can start."

As ever, the prices provided in brackets are for the initial download only: when an app uses in-app purchases, this will be listed as (Free + IAP). No, it’s not changing to “get” just yet.

More interested in Android apps? They’re covered in a separate weekly Best Android Apps roundup. But if it’s iOS you’re after, read on for this week’s selection which, since we’ve missed a few weeks, is a bumper top 30.

Playing with CodeMonkey - Doug - Off the Record @dougpete

Playing with CodeMonkey - Doug - Off the Record  @dougpete | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"Many of the applications for introductory program are based on the logo turtle concept.  Even at that presentation, there sometimes is a challenging entry point.  You have to understand the concept of the stage, the mathematics of location, movement, etc. before you even get started.

 

In the case of CodeMonkey, they’ve take more of a challenge / gamification approach.

 

Yes, you work directly with code instructions like STEP and TURN but they’re done in the context of solving a problem.  The video above gives a nice description of how you or your students work within the environment.

 

As with many of my obsessions with coding and Computer Science, it’s just plain fun.  Stepping back for a moment, I had to reflect on the fact that they’ve introduced the concept of coding and problem solving in a very non-threatening manner.  I was quite impressed."

Using iMovie App in Physical Education Lessons - November 2014

Using iMovie App in Physical Education Lessons - November 2014 | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

This month I have been supporting the PE department with using the iPads to enhance their lessons and pupils to analyse skills. Last year Apple updated iMovie app to include features such as Split Screen, Freeze Frame, Video Speed etc. This year the update has made some of these features a little easier to find.

 

Split Screen: We have used this to compare videos of the same skill taken from two different angles. For example, a cricket bowling action.

 

Video Speed: We have used this by splitting part of a clip where the skill is most demonstrated and slowing it down.

 

Freeze Frame: We can stop a clip at any point and create a freeze frame. This freeze frame can be split at either end to create a separate clip and textual analysis added.

 

I would also like to say a big thank you for all the great feedback to the iPad Teachers App. We are only at the start of the content we can add to this so look out for the first update in mid December with even more ideas. Details of the app can be found at www.ipadteachers.co.uk

EdTechTeam: The How (and Why) It's Time to Create Digital Portfolios | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it
Digital Student Portfolios are becoming more important now than ever! Students are creating and remixing information like never before – and where is all that amazing work going? At my old school it was wiped off the devices at the end of the year – a heart-wrenching idea that I was personally against. This is why we need to publish student work in one place and let it serve as a home of student reflection, and a become a destination to unleash student pride and curiosity.

There are many reasons to begin the journey to digital portfolios – here are just a few.
