10 Powerful iPad Apps For English And History

10 Powerful iPad Apps For English And History | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it
When I first started teaching English with 1:1 iPads, I was really jealous of the science and fine arts teachers. They had all of the most engaging apps, and I was left with a lowly word processor and an instant thesaurus. Fortunately, so much has changed. I now have the flexibility to duck in and …

Free Technology for Teachers: Photo Mapo for Archiving Summer (and other things) | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"While gathering resources to share with campus teachers, I stumbled upon thePhoto Mapo app and quickly added it to my list of tools for summer archival. The intent was to provide a repository of tools and applications that educators could utilize in the midst of their staycations and vacations that could also be extended to the classroom. Photo Mapo is a FREE app that does just that.

Just downloaded and checked it out. So easy to use. Choose a photo and that's it! (GPS data with photo, of course.) Lots of templates to choose from. 

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, June 9, 8:42 PM

Very useful for fieldtrips and site -based learning activities - the app allows you to record the location, a map, a photo and notes about the location in a single "postcard" style image.  Geological survey, environmental outings, etc could all be recorded with this innovative, yet very simple application.

Great Tools and Apps to Teach Students Computer Programming ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Great Tools and Apps to Teach Students Computer Programming ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"Learning how to write a computer program is a lot like learning a new language. There are nouns, verbs, and sentences. With far fewer words than a spoken language, it may be easier too. A student of languages can pick it up just as quickly as a student of math. To help, here are a set of tools that teach computer programming."

How Teachers Are Actually Using Technology In Their Classrooms - Edudemic

How Teachers Are Actually Using Technology In Their Classrooms - Edudemic | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"Earlier this year, a study was completed that aimed to understand how teachers use technology in their classrooms, and to identify some best practices for all to benefit from. As most of you well know, many teachers have to approach classroom technology from different angles. Some have to follow a specific set of rules from their school or district, including what devices and software to use. Some have great support from their school. Others have none at all, and if they want to integrate classroom technology, it is 100% up to them. But where ever you’re coming at it from, a few best practices can help a lot."

I'm sorry but I can't see why people scoop or re scoop this. The link to the research doesn’t work and it seems strange to me that the actual citation for the study is not included. I am also unclear why, from all the current research being done, this study was chosen and discussed. It relies on anecdotal evidence from teachers and tends to provide emotive rather than detailed information about how teachers use technology in the classroom. This does not reflect the depth and complexity of learning we want from our students. Re scooping it just reflects the superficial nature of this type of information.

"Blended learning is a potentially powerful way of mixing the power of asynchronous access with face-to-face facilitation and instruction.

A Must See Chart on SAMR Model and iPad Teaching ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Must See Chart on SAMR Model and iPad Teaching ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"Technology integration in instruction is a process that starts with setting out clearly defined objectives and ends with assessing learning outcomes against these objectives, and all along the way several tools and strategies are employed to attend to the overall performance of this process. Hence, the first question teachers need to ponder when thinking about using technology in class is not what kind of technology to use but what do they want to achieve behind using this technology? On a deeper level, they need to find answers to questions such as: Does this technology constitute a a good addition to the learning task ?  Can the same learning task be performed without using technology? These and several other questions  should come to the forefront when you start planning a technology-based learning activity.

"iPad apps are, and have always been, a big part of what makes the iPad such a powerful device. Great apps, and unique apps that you just don’t find anywhere else, are one of the hallmark features of the iPad. They have been since Day 1, and scores of great developers and publishers continue to produce apps that are exclusively for the iPad. Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday.

 

This week’s pick is Juxtaposer, an app that lets you combine multiple pictures to create fun and striking new images. Better still, it’s got an easy to use interface – that makes the process quite quick."

Using Pic Collage as a Mini Yearbook - ENGAGE THEIR MINDS

Using Pic Collage as a Mini Yearbook - ENGAGE THEIR MINDS | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"Yesterday was my last class with my 2nd grade GT students.  I like them to do some sort of reflection at the end of the year, and we usually spend a lot of time reviewing the events of the past 9 months. (Otherwise, their favorite memory tends to be the very last thing we did.) This year, I decided to try something different.

 

I showed the students how to access the categories of our class blog so they could view all of the posts for 2nd grade for this year.  Then they went through the posts, and chose pictures that were meaningful to them.  As they were on iPads, I taught them how to hold their finger on an image to save it to the Camera Roll (fair warning – this is a tricky skill for 2nd graders).  After about 30 minutes, I showed them the Pic Collage app.  They were allowed to add any pictures that they wanted to their collages.  Many added text (and stickers, of course!)  They loved the activity.  When they were finished, each student had a personal poster to remind him or her of the year in GT.  If we had more time, we would have made ThingLinks with reflections, similar to last year."
