How to Download Music and Video Files to the iPad @JonathanWylie

How to Download Music and Video Files to the iPad @JonathanWylie | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it
Have you ever needed to download music or video files to your iPad or iPhone? The lack of a dedicated file structure on the iPad is an often maligned feature that leads some to turn against the iPad as a tool for the classroom, but it shouldn’t. At least not when there are free apps like Documents by Readdle, which have been created to help fill that void. It is one of the few genuine five star apps in the App Store, and here’s why.

Free Technology for Teachers: Send Your Students on a QR Code Treasure Hunt | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it
QR Codes are all around us today. Open a magazine, a catalog, or glance at a bulletin board and you're likely to see a QR code. QR Codes make it easy to jump to a website or download a file on your mobile device. QR codes and QR code reader apps are one of the many ways that cell phones can be used in schools for academic purposes. To that end, Russel Tarr the QR Treasure Hunt Generator.

Microsoft has today introduced a new Minecraft Educational portal which has been specifically designed for teachers to be able to use the block building game to help their students learn.

The new Minecraft for teachers portal is still currently in the final stages of development but any teachers interested in signing up for updates can do so over on the Education Minecraft website which has been launched by Microsoft this week.

Microsoft Released A New Website to Help Teachers Use Minecraft in Their Classes ~ EdTech & MLearning | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it
‘Minecraft in education is a way to teach, learn and inspire. It’s students visiting ancient civilizations to create and play out their own stories. It’s exploring mathematical concepts like perimeter, area, and volume by breaking and placing Minecraft blocks. It’s practising collaboration, problem solving, digital citizenship, and leadership skills through creative thinking and innovative design. Minecraft in education is teachers and students inspiring each other to change the way we learn.’

Any way of making a link between what students really do and the maths we want them to learn is a bonus.  Too often a 'real-life' maths problem has little or no relevance to the students' lives.

What Minecraft Can Teach You About Pedagogy

by TeachThought Staff

Minecraft is a simple, clumsy-looking little game full of blocky graphics and unclear terms of play. It is essentially a giant sandbox of digital legos that players can do with what they wish–tear stuff down, dig holes, or build dizzying towers of complex design and architecture.

And it’s a perfect analogue for what’s possible in learning.

First off, let’s be clear–it’s a huge, huge hit. Minecraft has sold over 20,000,000 copies to date. It is available for iPad, Android, PC, and Xbox (though sadly, not the PS3), and is quickly becoming a cultural phenomenon. What makes it popular with children is tempting

8 things every teacher can do to create an innovative classroom | eSchool News | eSchool News | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it
Innovation is a trait that I desperately want to instill in my students, and many teachers I talk to seem to share that goal. In the current climate of high stakes testing, state standards, and prescribed learning outcomes, it can be incredibly difficult to foster an atmosphere of innovation and creativity that inspires students. But rest assured, it is possible.

Here, I outline eight basic principles for the “Innovative Classroom,” around which I designed a middle school course called Physical Computing. Some of the projects and tools are specific to that course, but I think the fundamental ideas could be applied to almost any course at any level.

Coding: 123...Doodle! #SketchNoting

Coding: 123...Doodle! #SketchNoting | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it
 I have been exploring sketch-noting and brain-doodling lately and thought it would be a great vehicle my students to think, process, and organize information.  I started off with a class discussion and asking my students what they find challenging about note-taking.  Many of them shared that they found it hard to keep up with the speaker, and others said that they sometimes wrote so furiously that they couldn't understand their own handwriting when it came time to study for the tests.  Others shared how they found it difficult to make sense of their notes.  Sketch-noting seemed a great way to address some of these issues.  Introducing it through sample images of sketchnoting from Google images and sites like Sketchnote Army was a great way to start.  For more tutorials and ideas of places to start with doodling, I went to Brain Doodles.

Rebecca Louise Melia's curator insight, April 9, 2015 6:32 PM

After researching their own life and milestones, students can create a list of significant events and then use this simple app to create a timeline of their lives. Timelines can be made using "before birth", and then each year of age so far. Creating a timeline can also be linked mathematics as it involves "sequencing events" (Mae-13MG) (Board of Studies, NSW, 2014).  

 

The finished timeline acts as a form of formative assessment, as it is a physical representation of their understanding of life events and their ability to use the technology. Students can be questioned about their work to assess their progress - In order to do this successfully students should be asked some closed questions, followed by open-ended questions, requiring some explanation (McMillan, 2011, p.118). Questions could include "What would come next on your timeline?" and "Do you think everyone would have the same timeline as you? Why?".

Comfortably 2.0: 10 Activities to do on an iPad instead of a Worksheet

Comfortably 2.0: 10 Activities to do on an iPad instead of a Worksheet | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it
I always have teachers wanting to know how they can better utilize the iPad in their classrooms. I know that it's very easy when first receiving an iPad to take a worksheet that you have done for several years, and convert it to glass. But glass can be boring too, so I created this Breakfast Club session to give my teachers some ideas on ways to better utilize this powerful tool in their classrooms.


So the "activities" that I started coming up with started turning into all sorts of ideas and app suggestions.  I shared all of the ideas with the teachers that attended, but found myself particularly enjoying the conversations that we were having about some of the activities that are taking place in the classrooms at Aurora Public Schools.


Our teachers are doing great things with the iPads in their classrooms and it was great to have teachers share and learn from each other!  Here are some of the activities, ideas and apps that we talked about on how to better utilize the iPad in the classroom."

Time Lapse iPad Workflow - July 2015

Time Lapse iPad Workflow - July 2015 | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

I have blogged about using time-lapse before and it appears in our iPad Teacher Guide App (www.ipadteachers.com), notably to capture shadows moving across a playground. We use the time-lapse feature in I Can Animate a lot and even more recently where I have supported a number of schools who are capturing mini-beasts and even chicks hatching. The good thing about it is that it can be used with all year groups across a range of subjects but predominantly in Science.

 

The image above shows a typical workflow that we use combining I Can Animate, iMovie and Book Creator with Showbie used as the resource and assessment tool. The rule that we follow is that if the process takes less than a day (e.g Shadows across the playground, dough rising etc) then we use time-lapse. If it is longer than a day (e.g seeds growing) then we take the photos in I Can Animate manually because we want to use the iPads inbetween time.

Why is STEM important? In short, the future job market will revolve around science. This includes all forms of technology, engineering and math. 80% of jobs in the future will require technology skills. Statistics today show that there will be a drastic shortage of job applicants in the next decade with the skills and knowledge to fill these new positions. While only 4% of the nation’s workforce is composed of scientists and engineers, this group creates jobs for the other 96% of the workforce (source). The average professional with a STEM-related degree earns more than double the average national wage. About 3 million jobs are currently unfilled because Americans lack the basic STEM skills needed for the positions (source).
