Narrate Slideshows With 30hands for iPad

Narrate Slideshows With 30hands for iPad | Leadership in Primary Education | Scoop.it

"30hands is a free iPad app that makes it very easy to create a narrated slideshow. To create a basic narrated slideshow on 30hands all you need to do is import images from your iPad’s camera roll then press the record button below each image to record your narration. If you don’t have any pictures on your iPad you can take pictures using the 30hands app. 30hands also allows you to draw images instead of importing pictures. You can combine imported pictures with drawn images in your presentations. And you can draw on top of imported images. When your project is complete you can save it on your iPad or share it with the 30hands community."

6 Apps You Should Be Using with Evernote ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

6 Apps You Should Be Using with Evernote ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Leadership in Primary Education | Scoop.it

"Evernote is definitely one of the apps I use everyday. It helps me stay organized and scales up my productivity. However, the app has even more to offer when used with other partner apps. These apps  are particularly useful in expanding Evernote functionality  and in providing you with a richer and organized experience."

I downloaded Evernote a while ago and still have learned to use it yet. Perhaps it's time for me to figure it out!

These are great apps if you use evernote
Lou Salza's curator insight, June 1, 2013 5:02 PM

I started using Evernote for storing notes from meetings so I could retrieve them on any device at any location.  It is searchable and does way more than keep notes stored and accessible. This site will lead you to excellent explanations of Evernote and its functionality. It can be particularly useful  for teachers and their students !--Lou

Vicki Butler's curator insight, June 7, 2013 2:30 PM

I need explore the power of Evernote.  The power to use this as a 'notebook' for learners intrigues me.

Wonderful WWF Together App Adds New Jaguar Stories

Wonderful WWF Together App Adds New Jaguar Stories | Leadership in Primary Education | Scoop.it

"WWF Together is one of the very best iPad apps I’ve ever laid eyes on. I can’t think of too many other apps with such spectacular photos and certainly none with such amazing photos of some of the most beautiful animals on earth. It’s immensely sad to realize that these are also all endangered species.

 

The app has recently added a couple of new ‘species stories’ on Sharks and the Jaguar. The photos of Jaguars are just incredible and really show what magnificent creatures they are."
