Todo indica que en un futuro no demasiado lejano el aprendizaje se basará, en un tanto por ciento muy elevado, en los dispositivos móviles, tanto dentro como fuera del aula. Surge así este interrogante: ¿Pueden realmente las aplicaciones móviles mejorar el aprendizaje? La siguiente infografía nos puede ayudar a sacar nuestras propias conclusiones. Estos son algunos de sus puntos más destacables.
"AudioCopy is a free iPad app that makes it easy to record and share audio files. To use AudioCopy simply open the app, tap the red record button, and start talking. You can use the app to trim the end and beginning of your recording and normalize sound fluctuations. Your finished recording can be published to SoundCloud or any of the 197 apps that are compatible with AudioCopy."
"Since we learn how to create narrated slideshows on the iPad using EduCreations (free) and Explain Everything(the most powerful app available for classroom media creation, IMHO) I create a narrated slideshow that same night to answer submitted participant questions. I’m able to view these readily as Google Form responses in an automatically-generated spreadsheet."
- teachingwithipad.org"Preamble: This article is to support iPads in teaching. However, it is not to devalue the benefits of a great teacher. The execution of iPads in class is only going to go as far as the passions and mindset of the teacher allows it to. In other words, the iPad will never replace quality teaching.
I have enjoyed working again with Richard Wells on this post, despite the 19 hour time difference (which, I guess, is only a five hour one!). If you haven't read our previous post, please check it out: The Habits and Philosophy of an Effective iPad Teacher. I look forward to one day working alongside Richard, perhaps even in person!
The following post will give reasons and arguments FOR teaching with iPads. We hope it will give you some key justification points in your teaching journey to implementing proper technology (specifically, with iPads) into your everyday teaching."
Managing tablets as learning tools in the classroom is not easy, especially when many kids use them largely as toys outside of school, if they have access to a tablet in their home environment. Here are some ideas on how to develop smart habits for class.
"Today as I was wading through my Twitter feeds I came across a link to the periodic table of iPad apps created by ICTEvangelist.Upon checking this work I learned that it is inspired by a relatively similar work done by Sean Junkins which I have featured in an earlier post in this blog. Different as they are, both of these periodic tables provide an interesting collection of educational iPad apps you could probably consider using with your students.These apps are arranged under different categories and each of these categories has a unique colour code to help you identify apps belonging it. The labelling of the categories in these two periodic tables slightly differ from one another with ICTEvangelist tending to repurpose his work for UK-based educational settings."
"I was re-reading the Horizon Report the other day when it occurred to me that it could be easily summarised. This has helped me consolidate the main elements of the article in my own mind. It is always interesting to reflect on where your school or region is at in this whole process. I hope this is helpful for you too. Please feel free to use and share."
"ClassroomPDF for the iPad is a PDF App tailor made for a teacher's workflow. It is ideal for grading PDF documents and presenting them in class. In addition to a silky-smooth handwritten ink engine, unique One-Tap Covers let you hide answers on the page and reveal them when needed. This is great for impromptu quizzes and motivating in-class discussions."
