"The philosophy behind the maker movement is to explore and create with  purpose. It’s about embracing a child’s natural curiousity and supporting the notion of learning by doing.  As it should be in every classroom, play is a key component  in the maker movement.

 

Makers believe it you can imagine  it you can make it."

This is a fantastic tool for engaging anyone with picture or video for behavioral feedback, or for social stories and language development.  Very easy to operate and free.  Social stories for kids are a snap.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, March 23, 9:16 AM

This is a guest post from Greg Kulowiec of EdTechTeacher.org, an advertiser on Free Technology for Teachers. 

Publishing student video that is created with iPads can be a challenging process, especially with younger students. Even schools that are Google Apps typically decide to turn off YouTube uploads to the student accounts. However, with the use of a handful of free applications, students can create video content on iPad, share their creation with a teacher, and then have the teacher upload to their YouTube channel or a class YouTube channel.

It makes an interesting point about app development for middle and high school students. We wonder why is there such a gap between these two markets? "

Alan Ovens's comment, May 29, 5:35 PM
Bloom wrote his stuff in 1956. This is just a pretty picture of some old ideas. It doesn't even capture all the dimensions Bloom was talking about. It seems to me this is just a way of using technology to push old ideas about what learning and knowing is.
John Evans's comment, May 29, 6:34 PM
Alan check the far left edge of the image. It does address the Revised Bloom's Taxonomy as outlined by Krathwohl http://www.unco.edu/cetl/sir/stating_outcome/documents/Krathwohl.pdf
Alan Ovens's comment, May 30, 1:58 AM
Hi John. I appreciate the link and have looked at the articles. The point remains that the revision still represents an old way of thinking about learning and only concentrates on the cognitive domain. The first article does not appear to explain why the revision only deals with vol one of Blooms Taxonomy. What about the affective and psychomotor domains? I am curious why people keep pushing the overly cognitivist notion of this taxonomy when iPads (and more modern learning theories) give us a way of thinking about learning in enactivist and embodied ways. I think it is generally accepted that the cognitivist view of learning is fairly outdated. Mobile technologies and digital learning should be informed by more contemporary theory. I would be interested go hear your thoughts and anyone's else who wants to respond.

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | iPads in the Elementary Library | Scoop.it

"The interest in inquiry-based learning seems to ebb and flow based on–well, it’s not clear why it ever ebbs.

 

In short, it is a student-centered, Constructivist approach to learning that requires critical thinking, and benefits from technology, collaboration, resourcefulness, and other modern learning skills that never seem to fall out of favor themselves.

 

Regardless, St Oliver Plunkett Primary School has put together two very useful images that can help you populate your iPad–or classroom of iPads–with apps that support both inquiry-based learning (the second image below), and a more general approach to pedagogy based on Apple’s uber-popular tablet (the top image)."

This is a very logical organization of apps.  It would be interesting to compares other schools or districts app usage in this manner.

"In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices.

The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same."
