4 Powerful Apps to Visually Sketch Ideas on iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

4 Powerful Apps to Visually Sketch Ideas on iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"One of the best techniques to catch and record ideas is through using visual graphs. Data that is visually encoded is more likely to be processed by the mind in a faster and easier way. This is probably the reason why students love it when comics and graphic are included in instruction. In this regard,  Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has curated a list of some powerful iPad apps that you and your students can use to visually grab ideas and create sketchy mindmaps. I invite you to check the collection below and share with us what you think of them."

As an avid mind mapper, I would like to add the following apps to the growing list: ThinkBuzan.com's iMindMap HD; Mindjet Maps; MindMaple, and iThoughts HD. Also, MindTools HD for the iPad (see mindtools.com) is a suite of tools covering a wide range of essential skills for students and workplace professionals alike.

great, thanks Rick I will have a look at some of those! Evernote and Notability are my two personal faves, My students love Popplet for mind mapping and they draw a lot using Notability.

TeachingwithiPad.org: Dropbox for Dummies: Why You Shouldn't Need Your USB Key Again | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"Dropbox is my number one productivity tool that I use every single day, both for teaching and personal purposes. If you are still toting around USB thumb-drives and moving files from your home and work computers that way, keep on reading. If not, feel free to check out some of my more advanced Dropbox articles listed below.

 

For the completely uninitiated, Dropbox is a cloud storage solution that is free for the everyday user. Dropbox will give you (a rather paltry) 2GB of space when you first sign up. You can increase your free space to up to 19GB by doing certain tasks (referrals will net you an extra 500MB each). If you find that you need extra space, you can opt to purchase additional storage of up to 500GB total."
