iMovie Introductions: lesson starter idea | iPad Art Room | iPads - Yes iPads! | Scoop.it

"Well, here’s one of my best ‘teaser’ ideas…

 

We’ve all seen iMovie, but have you used it to make the first five minutes of your art lesson engaging?  In the classroom iMovie trailers can be used as an exciting hook for techniques and processes. While the story lines do not automatically match the content you would present to students, with a little creativity and artistic licence they can lend themselves to many useful areas in the art room.  Have a look at this one…"

Getting Kids Engaged with Primary Sources | Cool Tools by Richard Byrne | The Digital Shift

Getting Kids Engaged with Primary Sources | Cool Tools by Richard Byrne | The Digital Shift | iPads - Yes iPads! | Scoop.it

"I vividly remember being disappointed during my first year of teaching: my students weren’t nearly as excited about primary source documents as I was. Primary source documents, as you know, offer readers a unique, real-world perspective, and I thought my kids would love delving into them. I soon learned that my disappointing results weren’t due to the documents that I’d selected, but rather how I was having students use them. That first year, they weren’t doing anything but reading them. Today, Web-based tools enable students to discover more primary sources than ever before and engage them in dynamic ways. The following items are some of my favorites."

8 Steps to Create Engaging Google Forms ( for Teachers ) ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads - Yes iPads! | Scoop.it

"This is the 5th post in a series of articles geared towards helping teachers and educators better leverage the power of Google services in education. I know there are several tutorials out there but these ones I have for you are different . Different because they are created by a fellow teacher like you who knows your needs and therefore tries to attend to these needs. These guides are also illustrated by screenshots and explanatory text and in some cases video clips.


Today's tutorial is on the use of Google forms. "

10 iPad Apps To Record How Students Learn

10 iPad Apps To Record How Students Learn | iPads - Yes iPads! | Scoop.it

"

"For all of the analyses of academics, learning models, curriculum, 21st century thinking, assessment, project-based learning, self-directed learning, social media integration, iPads and related technology, and other emerging trends, how students learn is why we’re all here, yes?

 

And understanding how something happens requires observation as an early step. What’s developing, when and how?

 

Where are the misunderstandings? What is not clear? Where is the learning being successful that I’m missing? And how can I share not just the end product but the proces itself–the idea behind project-based learning–with a much larger audience?

 

Below are 10 iPad apps to get started in that direction."

Apps in Education: ArtSet - Great for building confidence in young artists | iPads - Yes iPads! | Scoop.it

"ArtSet was an impressive app that I was introduced to last week. I was presenting at a conference and one of the organisers asked if a number of the presenters could go through a workflow to illustrate how a series of apps might be able to be used to deepen student learning. The idea was the the product of one app would become the input for the next. The story of The Lion and the Mouse was suggested as an idea. Each presenter was given three minutes only. There was a cross section of both primary and secondary teachers in the group."

"What it is: Dragon Box has got to be the most brilliant game for teaching a new concept I have seen in a LONG time.  I am SO impressed with this app, I can’t say enough about it!  This is a math game that teaches algebra without you really realizing that it is a math game teaching you algebra.  It feels more like a logic card game than anything else."

iPad art apps – ‘App-ing Out & About!’ | iPad Art Room | iPads - Yes iPads! | Scoop.it

"Here’s a great idea… Take your students to a gallery and let them interact with the sculptures like never before.  We took a group of Year 10s on a walk through a sculpture garden and asked them to use their iPads to photograph the work.  Using their iPads they created abstract images by using apps in workflows to manipulate the photos on the spot.  The results were amazing.  Rather than producing one picture, most students created a very diverse folio of work."
