40+ iPad Apps for Reading Disabilities ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads - Redefining Instruction | Scoop.it
Whether you're the parent of a child with a reading disability or an educator that works with learning disabled students on a daily basis, you're undoubtedly always looking for new tools to help these bright young kids meet their potential and work through their disability. While there are numerous technologies out there that can help, perhaps one of the richest is the iPad, which offers dozens of applications designed to meet the needs of learning disabled kids and beginning readers alike. Here, we highlight just a few of the amazing apps out there that can help students with a reading disability improve their skills not only in reading, writing, and spelling, but also get a boost in confidence and learn to see school as a fun, engaging activity, not a struggle.

"Creating augmented reality has never been so easy until now! DAQRI 4D Studio gives educators and students the ability to easily create experiences and instantly publish them to share with the world. As our friend Katie Ann said during her augmented reality presentation at Podstock this year, "If you can copy and paste, and drag and drop, then you can create augmented reality." Each experience created and published by in 4D Studio for Education can be viewed using the target image and free DAQRI application. "

Miss Smith's 1st Grade: App-tastic Ideas for Building the Classroom Community

Miss Smith's 1st Grade: App-tastic Ideas for Building the Classroom Community | iPads - Redefining Instruction | Scoop.it

"With school beginning just around the corner, I've been thinking of some app-tastic ideas to begin the school year.  Each year as I had a fresh group of students, I always began the year with classroom community building activities to help everyone get to know one another.  I felt this was a valuable time for me as the teacher to learn more about my students and for  them to learn a little about each other.  As we built our classroom community, I was always hunting for the small connections, the ways to show the students "you matter" and "I care."  


I thought I would show some ways to take the normal get to know each other activities and add a technology twist to them.  "

"The iPhone and iPad make great email companions, thanks to the built-in Mail app. Unfortunately, large attachments can eat lots of data, or worse, not send at all. Luckily services like Dropbox are making it easier than ever to share files via email, no matter how big they are. Once you've got the file in Dropbox, you can send it via the Mail app in just a few taps!"

Inquiry over iPads: Creating Digital Fairy Tales using Puppet Pals/ Sketchbook Pro/ iMovie

Inquiry over iPads: Creating Digital Fairy Tales using Puppet Pals/ Sketchbook Pro/ iMovie | iPads - Redefining Instruction | Scoop.it

"We loved the idea of using iPads to help guide students through the process of learning. When Google Drive was placed on the iPads at our school we knew this would be a way for us to transfer student work off devices and eagerly planned a project to utilize the technology. 

 

We asked the Students in our Grade 3/4 classes to make their own original digital fairy tale. Using a hook, relating to the Calgary flood of 2013, students wrote a fairy tale for a character displaced by the flood. Students were guided through a variety of writing lessons, based on Barbara Mariconda’s work, students worked in groups of two to write, illustrate and produce an original fairy tale iMovie."

Writing for a purpose with the iPad and QR Codes- March 2014 Blog Post

Writing for a purpose with the iPad and QR Codes- March 2014 Blog Post | iPads - Redefining Instruction | Scoop.it

Last week during World Book Day, my school had a Dr Seuss themed week. As I teach each class ICT during the one day, I decided to develop pupils awareness of their audience during a short book review activity. I told the pupils that not only would their class teacher be reading their book reviews but the rest of the school and parents would be listening to them. After a few blank faces glared back at me, I explained that their reviews had to be recorded into their iPads and could not be longer than 30 seconds. We used Croak It app to record the reviews (it limits the recordings to 30 seconds) and then shares that recording as a web-link. These links were then put into the QR code creator app, printed and put with the front covers of the books. If you want to record longer than 30 seconds and have images displayed while you listen to them then you could use Shadow Puppets which also creates a web-link or AudioBoo which makes a QR code for you. If you want pupils to attach a GarageBand song to a QR code then you can save the song into something like box.com app using the open in tool and create a web link from there. 
We then displayed the finished front covers around the school, in the weekly newsletter and library.

This is a great activity to try with our elementary.  Our schools do a whole Dr. Suess unit during February's I Love to Read month.  This will be a nice addition.  Thanks for sharing.

ScratchJr - #peel21st Blog Hop

ScratchJr - #peel21st Blog Hop | iPads - Redefining Instruction | Scoop.it
No, ScratchJr is not the iPad version of Scratch.  They are actually quite different when you examine the programming potential of each. ScratchJr would be more aptly characterized as “ScratchLite” or “SimpleScratch.” I have seen Scratch used by all ages of children in school, from K to 12, and very successfully.  Programs in Scratch can be incredibly simple or incredibly complex.  ScratchJr is only capable of fairly simple programs, and primarily narrative animations. However, ScratchJr works on the iPad! That’s great news for many classroom teachers and students alike. Scratch does not work on the iPad; it’s a web 2.0 tool that runs in your browser using Flash player.
