Great advice on apps AND a systematic approach for how one goes about integrating the iPad into ealry literacy instruction.

Anita Vance's curator insight, January 19, 7:43 AM

A guided approach for using apps.  It is nice to see support for a low-tech first approach.  Understanding before application enhances the learning process for any age.

Book Creator 2.4 for iPad Allows You To Combine Books

Book Creator 2.4 for iPad Allows You To Combine Books | iPads in the Elementary Classroom | Scoop.it
Earlier this month I wrote a glowing review of the Book Creator iPad app. Book Creator allows you to create narrated books on your iPad. Today, Book Creator 2.4 was releasedwith some nice new tools.

The latest version of Book Creator allows you to combine books that you have created using the app. In fact, you can even combine books from multiple iPads. What this means is that you could have students work on the creation of a book together from separate iPads. Have each student work on a chapter then combine all of the chapters into one book. Click here for complete directions on combining books

Technology in the Classroom!

Brian H. Burnett's curator insight, April 17, 2013 9:52 AM

Children are being able to show what’s in their minds by adding the oral explanation,” he said. “That’s off-the-charts amazing.” Particularly helpful, he said, is to watch the recordings made by young children and English-language learners—students who may not speak up much in class but can actually show deep learning when asked to interview each other or record what they know. But most eye-opening, he said, is watching children have their own “aha” moments after watching recordings of themselves and talking to teachers about what they were thinking at the time."


"This notion of using the iPad to make learning visible is not without hiccups, however—particularly when it comes to filming and editing. Despite all the talk about kids being “digital natives” who can navigate iPads before they can walk, teaching children to create videos isn’t easy. When I watched the first-graders complete their assessment on systems, one girl’s videos wouldn't save at first—a technical problem that could have dissolved into a meltdown if a teacher had not been sitting right next to her to help. “It gave me gray hairs,” said a first-grade teacher about those first few weeks teaching iMovie to 6-year-olds. But she quickly added that the extra time was worth it."

Jennifer Robinson's curator insight, April 18, 2013 6:25 PM

This is the kind of creative power I want toharness in the iPads.
