This is a great website to find educational apps for any mobile platform. It's easy to search by platform, keywords or topic and then you can just scan QR codes to download the apps.

 

Kathy Benson's curator insight, March 23, 2013 7:44 PM

I like that you can search by student age and subject.

Maria Lupandina's curator insight, April 8, 2013 4:11 PM

Занимательная вещь, способная увлечь детей лет 10-13. Сайт переводит вас к приложению для iOS, собственно только в виде приложения всё и работает. Можно создавать короткие анимированные ролики, записывая свой голос или набирая текст. Объем текста ограничен. Говорят персонажи только по-английски. Полезно будет для напоминания о домашней работе, о различных кратких правилах или исключениях. Ученики могут использовать это приложение на уроках или дома, создавая свои мини-ролики. А им это, безусловно, понравится!

 

Только английский язык.

Today, this body of knowledge and experience makes up what is known as the Breaking Ranks Framework: a comprehensive framework for school improvement that can support all schools in the K–12 continuum.

MyBuckets

MyBuckets | K-12 Web Resources | Scoop.it

The application allows you to connect to Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, LinkedIn, and/or Twitter, bringing all of your feeds into one central location. Not only does it provide a one-stop shop for these social networks, it allows you to group friends/followings across these networks into individual "buckets”. A bucket can be anything from one person you know, to a group such as family or co-workers, or even just a description like sports. The buckets you create or your connected social network feeds can be displayed, which enables you to see and act upon a real time listing of posts coming from each service.

Christin Lopez's curator insight, October 23, 2014 7:15 AM

This site provides a way to have an online textbook that you can share with students. Even in the free edition, there are upgrade charges for features and more storage, you can create and join classes. 

 

It looks like this has the potential to be a great resource, but I found trouble right away while searching for a couple topics that I currently teach. There are not textbooks that have tags that help me find what I was looking for. This made me question if the information is on the site and not tagged, or is it too new that others have not uploaded information. I thought that the software creators would have obtained copyright privileges for a number of topics to start the site out. They would have been seed ideas to get the ball rolling. For you to upload PDFs, you need to have the copyright permissions. So while the potential is there for individualizing, it is not a quick jump right into it.
