How To : Visually Record Ideas Using an iPad

Visual recording is similar to audio recording: they both use the same concept that is : recording. One uses voice and the other uses visual cues like diagrams, charts, lines, arrows...etc. Think about visual recording as visual mind mapping.

This is Visual Recording and NOT (in this case) Visual Facilitation

Robin Good: Finding good apps is not easy. iOS or Android hve the same problem on this front. Too many apps and too much effort needed to find out which are the really good ones.

 

To solve this issue Google has just started collectting and organizing some of the best fashion apps available in its store and it has created a page dedicated just to them called "Apps Focus". This is probably the start of an ongoing effort to curate, pick and organize the very best apps available inside the Google Play Store.


"Google just added another featured area that should provide just a little more discoverability for apps with slightly narrower audiences, in the form of the "Apps Focus" section.

 

The first App Focus? Fashion and Style - bringing together a collection of some of the best apps for the chic-minded."

The Future of Mobility [Infographic]

The Future of Mobility [Infographic] | mlearn | Scoop.it

An astounding 80 percent of the world’s population now has a mobile phone—and 84 percent is unwilling to go a single day without their phone. About 45 percent of Americans say they can’t go more than a few hours without checking their phones. In 2012 there were five billion mobile phones in the world—1.8 billion of these were smart phones.

 

Facebook now reaches 76 percent of the smartphone market, and it accounts for 23 percent of total time spent using apps each month.

The next five most used applications are Google apps, and they account for 10 percent of app usage time. One of the latest smartphone trends is that things are getting less touchy but more sensitive. Gestures and other non-tap inputs are on the rise. Casting a sidelong glance, for example, can pause a video. Some apps are being developed that will switch from manual to voice to text to gesture, depending on what you are doing...

Seeking to manage our attention and avoid distraction is one thing, but first we need to be aware of where our attention is going. As smartphones are increasingly used, this infographic highlights in just what way we use our phones. 1 in 5 people check their phone every ten minutes... something tells me that the smartphone may be one of the biggest sources of modern distraction!

Middle School Math HD for iPad gets facelift

Middle School Math HD for iPad gets facelift | mlearn | Scoop.it

Canadian based Interactive Elementary, a company specializing in the development of educational applications for Apple's iPad, today released a significant update to its flagship software, Middle School Math HD.

 

The app, downloaded in over thirty countries since its initial release last June, provides students aged 11-14 with game-based activities to practice core mathematical concepts.

 

"We have introduced several add-ons over the last few months," explains company president Dave Brown, an Ontario teacher. "Our focus through the second half of last year was making the app more comprehensive, and we achieved that by increasing the number of games included from five to the current eight. I believe, however, this latest update is especially significant because it really harmonizes the app. We had some top notch professionals completely redesign the user interface."

 

FG Factory, a Ukranian graphic design firm, headed the redesign. They were charged with unifying the thematic elements, enhancing the app's graphics and smoothing out the user experience.

 

"Alexandr Klimenko and his team were awesome. They really brought a fresh perspective," says Brown. "This is a significant upgrade."

 

Brown explains the market for educational apps has grown at a torrid pace as schools around the globe embrace tablet technology.

 

"We continue to see the most growth in the American market, but certainly schools worldwide are seeing the potential for tablets in schools, and although we have received an excellent response from the educational technology community, sales for home use are strong as well."

 

Coordinate geometry, operations with integers, and data management are among the many concepts explored in Middle School Math HD, which the company plans to see through more upgrades in 2012.

 

"We are committed to the ongoing development of Middle School Math HD. We've got eyes on the development of Windows 8 tablets and what that could mean in education, but our iOS version will certainly lead the way for the foreseeable future. We see the tablet as the textbook of the future. We fully expect to add more modules, integrate instructional videos, and incorporate more controls for teachers to collect student data."

 

To celebrate the update, Middle School Math HD is available today on the App Store for $0.99, $3 off the regular price.

 

An iPhone version of the app is expected to be released early next week.
