How to prepare a presentation using Evernote Add-Ons

Edmilson Simões's curator insight, November 20, 2014 5:02 AM

Evernote is a great tool, especially for language study. If you attempt to read something and there is a word or sentence that you don’t know use Evernote to clip it and review it later.

"The iPad has a host of great accessibility features that are built-in to help make the device more accessible for disadvantaged learners. However, today I was asked to think a little bit outside the box. I had a request from one of our consultants that was working with a teacher who wanted to link their iPad with a student’s iPad in real time."

If you give a school an iPad...

If you give a school an iPad... | Leadership and Professional Development | Scoop.it

"What we experience in education is a series of ebbs and flows, highs and lows, and waves of the latest craze. There are schools that satisfy every level of the spectrum when it comes to technology, but most sites are finding ways to prepare their students for the 21st century. iPads have become the gold standard in educational technology and hundreds, thousands, of schools are doing everything they can to give their students that opportunity.

 

The problem that we see is that you're doling out all of this technology without providing in-depth and dedicated training to the staff and students on how to properly implement their new devices in an educational setting. Not only is it a huge cost that you're leaving in the hands of untrained users, but you are also opening yourself up to issues that arise from misuse."
