There's a lot of great things about iPads, but clearly there are and have been some disadvantages. (Cough: USB port) Administrators and teachers asking the question "How can we get this right?" is powerfully important. Let's go digital, but let's do so in a way that empowers kids.

18 Apps That Will Inspire Creativity In Your Everyday Life - Huffington Post

18 Apps That Will Inspire Creativity In Your Everyday Life - Huffington Post | ipadseducation | Scoop.it
Mobile devices like iPads and Androids have transformed the way we experience boredom. No longer is a wayward commuter forced to play Snake or Tetris, occupying themselves in a hardly satisfying, and utterly pixelated virtual reality. The tablet or smart phone-wielding travelers can now immerse themselves in an entire library of art and culture-related distractions, finding solace in everything from a Vincent van Gogh game to a digital version of the Louvre.

Just this week, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a 140-year-old cultural stalwart of New York City, went the way of the future and introduced an iPhone app. Described as "exceedingly simple and modest" by Forbes, the move to make art more accessible is something we can't help but love. So, in the spirit of the Met's 21st century attitude, we've put together a list of mobile museums and art-honoring programs that will spark creativity in your everyday life.

Behold, 18 apps every creative and artist type should download now:

Using TPACK to Guide a 1-to-1 iPad Pilot -- THE Journal | ipadseducation | Scoop.it
TPACK shaped the design of instructional activities and student learning projects at Alexandria Country Day School (VA) as they piloted iPad integration in their fifth grade. A group of teachers, learning specialists and administrators came together to design a curriculum that would integrate an “Information and Communications Literacies” approach to support an inquiry- and project-based curriculum.

Apps that rise to the top: Tested and approved by teachers

Apps that rise to the top: Tested and approved by teachers | ipadseducation | Scoop.it

With the thousands of educational apps vying for the attention of busy teachers, it can be hard to sift for the gold. Michelle Luhtala, a savvy librarian from New Canaan High School in Connecticut has crowd-sourced the best, most extensive list of appsvoted on by educators around the country.

 

“I wanted to make sure we had some flexibility because there’s no one app that’s better than all the others,” Luhtala said. Some apps are best for younger students, others are more complicated, better suited for high school students. Many apps do one thing really well, but aren’t great at everything. Still others are bought, redesigned or just disappear — so it’s always good to know about an array of tools to suit the need at hand.
