36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | Learning by Doing - ESL and IPads | Scoop.it

"The interest in inquiry-based learning seems to ebb and flow based on–well, it’s not clear why it ever ebbs.

 

In short, it is a student-centered, Constructivist approach to learning that requires critical thinking, and benefits from technology, collaboration, resourcefulness, and other modern learning skills that never seem to fall out of favor themselves.

 

Regardless, St Oliver Plunkett Primary School has put together two very useful images that can help you populate your iPad–or classroom of iPads–with apps that support both inquiry-based learning (the second image below), and a more general approach to pedagogy based on Apple’s uber-popular tablet (the top image)."

Bmw's insight:

Flipped learning was a response to lectures at university but many classes were using sound pedagogy in the beginning. Flipped learning seems to forget sound pedagogy. In an inquiry based classroom  students should make videos.

This is a very logical organization of apps.  It would be interesting to compares other schools or districts app usage in this manner.

"No matter how old the profession, those who work in a particular field have always had the ability to communicate with one another to compare notes and improve services. The form of communication began with face-to-face contact in early civilization and evolved to a more digital form in today's age of technological advances. Technology has always improved communication methods by enabling all—not just professionals—the ability to consult, collaborate, and learn from others. This has progressed from the earliest printing presses to the most recent smartphones."

The 6 Skills for Researching Online Information Students should Know about ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

"With Internet becoming the number one source of information students flock to when looking for resources and references for their researches, it becomes imperative that we make sure that our students are equipped with the appropriate gear to keep them afloat in a sea of information and junk knowledge. I am not talking here about the tools students need to use such as  the different search engines available out there but more importantly they 'whys' and 'hows' of using these tools. We want to raise a generation of discerning researchers and critical thinkers and to do this we definitely need to shift the focus from the product and tilt it  more towards the process. In this regard I am sharing with you two important visuals that shed more light on the outline of the process of research. I invite you to have a look and share with your students."

10 Specific Ideas To Gamify Your Classroom

10 Specific Ideas To Gamify Your Classroom | Learning by Doing - ESL and IPads | Scoop.it

10 Specific Ideas To Gamify Your Classroom by Mike Acedo In today’s classroom, educators are constantly required to mold their teaching methods to give students the best opportunity to succeed. It is not only imperative for students to learn the required material, but also critical that students gain a sense of confidence toward their work, and find motivation to expand their learning.

However, this can be difficult for some students, who may struggle in traditional, lecture-based class styles. For some students, finding the motivation to complete homework or prepare for class can be a constant struggle, especially when every effort is met with a poor grade or frustration from teachers and parents. Therefore, teachers must become more and more creative when motivating students to learn.
