The Best 10 Android Apps for Project-based Learning ~ EdTech & MLearning | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it
Project-based learning is one of the best teaching strategies that enhances students learning and increases their engagement with the learning tasks at hand. Technology and particularly mobile technology takes this concept a step further by empowering students with the tools they need to perform their tasks anytime and anywhere they are. After having published a comprehensive list of iPad apps teachers can use to incorporate the ethos of project based learning in their classroom teaching, we are sharing with you today another list but this time for Android users.

Using the iPad in the Music Classroom – National Association for Music Education (NAfME)

Using the iPad in the Music Classroom – National Association for Music Education (NAfME) | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it
So, by now, unless you live under a rock, you have seen what an iPad can do for you as a teacher. This is my attempt to share a few of the things I do in my classroom with this wonderful piece of technology.

There are dozens if not hundreds of great music-based apps, and I will share a few of my favorites, but first, let’s talk about the basic features of the iPad that you can use out of the box.

One thing I use the video camera for is immediate feedback. It seems a bit obvious, but have you used the video camera to record your group and play it back to them? Immediate response. Don’t record a whole piece, just a passage. You can put it on a big screen if you have Apple TV or “AirPlay”. (This little gem of software is worth investigating).  I usually avoid recording kids faces, just follow the score so they are not visually distracted. Now make a list of the board (or the screen) of things they did well as a group, individually, etc. Then a contrasting list of things they need to improve.  There, your students just wrote four days of lesson plans for you! Lather, rinse, repeat.

Education Technology and the Twenty-First-Century Skills Gap

Education Technology and the Twenty-First-Century Skills Gap | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it
All too often in many countries, students do not get the education they must have to prosper in the twenty-first century. Education technology can help close this skills gap.
Viljenka Savli (http://www2.arnes.si/~sopvsavl/)'s insight:

Education technology can complement existing and emerging pedagogical approaches such as project-based, experiential, inquiry-based, and adaptive learning methods, as well as facilitate the teaching of twenty-first-century skills such as communication, creativity, persistence, and collaboration. But much more can be done with education technology to develop higher-order competencies and character qualities.
