We are only beginning to see the applications of smart phones to improve peoples lives.  In this TED talk, Paul Conneally explores some of the possibilities (citizen mapping, crowd-sourced disaster recovery, etc.) that is just sitting in the palm of our collective hands. 

Tony Hall's curator insight, February 18, 2013 6:43 AM

This is why ICT is important. No. Vital! Our students need to see things like this so that they understand the positive aspects of technology. They need to see that SMS, Facebook & Twitter are so much more than just a way sharing silly photos of themselves. This technology has the power to affect real, positive change.

#SASDataNotebook and other free products from this vendor caught my eye this morning - good stuff | Mobile and Accessible Learning with iPads | Scoop.it

My first impression was "why would you want an app that replicates traditional practices", but when I looked at this data notebook and the other products that SAS is offering for free, I was inspired to investigate this collection of apps more deeply.  Hope to report back on what I find.

Draw Pad Pro : Amazing Notepads and Sketchbooks! for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and iPad on the iTunes App Store

This App says Free for 24 hrs, so I'm not sure what the price is after promotion or how long the promotion will be, but I was very impressed with it and have emailed all my Ipad Volume Purchasing Faciliators to download it.  It's a Sketchbook  (like Penultimate)  and you can't beat free for a DECENT app.

 

From the website -----------------------------------------------

 

Free for 24 hours!!!

Draw Pad Pro is designed as a beautiful and innovative way to create and manage all your notes, sketches, scribbles, and more. The app takes advantage of new iOS 5 technology to offer an experience unseen in other note-taking or drawing apps.

AN APP THAT CHANGES EVERYTHING
Simply put, there is no existing writing app that allows the level of customization that Draw Pad offers. Change everything from the color of your notebooks and the pages they use, to the background and appearance of the app itself. With over 30 different papers, 15 notebook colors, and 10 app themes, you can make things look just the way you want them.

Edmodo just got a lot better on the iPad

Edmodo just got a lot better on the iPad | Mobile and Accessible Learning with iPads | Scoop.it

"One of the justifiable criticisms of the iPad was that it was difficult to impossible to transfer files between many apps or networks. With the addition of some apps like PocketCloud and FileBrowser, and the improvement of the Open in… function in later systems , especially iOS 6, this has become even less of an issue. Still, I’m terms of downloading files on web based apps, you were often limited to photos from the camera roll. This was the case with the Edmodo app.

An Edmodo app update earlier in the year allowed access to the Camera Roll and Google Docs. This however, was still too limiting to use the Library/Backpack feature of Edmodo to upload, store and download most files.

Today that changed. The latest Edmodo iPad app now adds File Sharing functionality, both uploading and downloading to Edmodo’ s Library (for teachers) and Backpack (students)."
