Storehouse Adds New Features for Creating Visual Stories - iPad Apps for School

Storehouse Adds New Features for Creating Visual Stories - iPad Apps for School | iPads in the International Elementary Classroom | Scoop.it
Storehouse is a free iPad and iPhone app that I’ve been recommending for over a year now. The app allows users to quickly create beautiful visual stories. This week Storehouse was updated. The updated version of the app provides features that many people have wanted. The updated version of the app now makes all of your stories private by default. Additionally, you can now embed your stories into blog posts rather than just sharing them via social media, email, or SMS.

Over 20 Good Apps to Use in BYOD Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Over 20 Good Apps to Use in BYOD Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads in the International Elementary Classroom | Scoop.it
BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is not only about students bringing their own devices to class and using them for educational purposes. It is much more than just a problem of hardware but is rather a question of what "learningware" students need to install and use with their devices. Most of the discussions on BYOD center around the accessibility and availability of devices together with the fact that students are experts of their own devices. Sounds good but not enough!

Students need to be provided powerful educational apps to galvanize the learning gen inside of them. They need to be shown what apps work with which. Below is a Symbalo board featuring a wide variety of powerful web tools and apps perfect for BYOD classrooms. Click on the image below to access the interactive version of this board where you can access the links of each of these apps.
