10 incredible iPad apps for education | Mobile learning and apps in school education | Scoop.it

"The tablet market has paved the way for educational resources in the form of slick, new apps, with text-books now being replaced by online downloadable versions of themselves. An array of stunning apps are at your disposal waiting to be exercised, so with this in mind, we decided to whittle down our top 10 iPad educational apps for students."

The Top 10 iPad Apps for Special Education -- THE Journal

The Top 10 iPad Apps for Special Education -- THE Journal | Mobile learning and apps in school education | Scoop.it

"The iPad takeover of public education isn’t just confined to the mainstream classroom: Special needs educators, too, are finding that  iPads can be a vital tool to support independence. What sets the iPad apart from other devices is the simple and visually robust user interface that can be used by almost everyone. It’s also a highly customizable device that can be set up with applications and assistive features to support a variety of special needs."

I love these lists!

Marianne Gunn's curator insight, December 16, 2013 1:46 AM

While I do believe these apps could use a bit more work and cost a little less I am happy to see technology in special education classrooms. In many cases children with special needs cam work better with computers than they do with people.

80 iPad Apps for Early Elementary - Apps for Education | ESUTechnology Integration | Mobile learning and apps in school education | Scoop.it

"

For my daughter's 7th birthday my wife and I decided to buy her an iPad mini.  We came to this decision after contemplating the alternatives.  
The iPad mini made the most sense because:

1 - iOS apps are significantly better (my opinion) than droid apps in this moment.  I'm talking about both diversity in educational apps available and general individual app quality.2 - The iPad mini can run all iPad and iPhone apps.3 - The iPad mini's size is much kid friendlier than the bigger iPad.4 - The iPad mini is actually fairly reasonably priced - ours was $300 at Walmart.


Now that I have it in my office, the next question is what apps do I put on it?  As a tech integration guy, I spend a significant amount of time reading and writing app reviews.  What follows is a short description / rationale for each of my choices.  All of these are apps that I had on my iPad that I recommend to my teachers - they are FREE unless otherwise noted."

Apps in Education: Word Clouds on the iPad

Apps in Education: Word Clouds on the iPad | Mobile learning and apps in school education | Scoop.it

"I love word clouds. It is the best way to deconstruct a piece of text with students. It lets you start that conversation about language, text types, literacy and the power of the written word. It is also a great way to do a text analysis. Marco Torres talks about using them to compare two political speeches to analyse the types of words each of the candidates use but this idea would work just as easily with characters in a book, types of poems or even a series of artists you are studying."

"

Teachers can’t escape the growing trend of technology in the classroom.  It’s more than just hype.  More schools are buying tablets for use in the classroom, with Apple’s tablet sales to the education sector doubling last year.

 

As a mobile software company whose product is used extensively in education, we dream big about the future of technology in the classroom.  We have worked with numerous great teachers http://bit.ly/13RKyUQ who have successfully leveraged tablets to improve the learning experience for students.

Are you tempted to join the trend?  Here are ten tips for introducing tablets into your classroom."

iPads in Primary Education: Apps for Computer Science | Mobile learning and apps in school education | Scoop.it

"As part of the proposed new draft primary curriculum for ICT, there is a significant emphasis on computer science. Below I've included a selection of apps which can be used in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. The apps included range from basic skills in coding a Beebot to more advanced skills in coding games and simulations in apps such as Hopscotch and Codea.


I've also included some other useful 'ICT' apps, which can be used to develop pupil's typing skills and Spreadsheet skills."

44 Education Apps For K-6 Open-Ended Learning On The iPad | TeachThought

44 Education Apps For K-6 Open-Ended Learning On The iPad | TeachThought | Mobile learning and apps in school education | Scoop.it

"Education apps are helpful for teachers because they refract content through engaging, colorful, and gamified approaches to content interaction.

 

They are also mobile, can offer data, and can be played at school or home, making them useful in a K-12 blended learning or flipped classroom setting.

 

With this kind of flexible utility in mind, it’s no wonder they’re in such high demand–so here are 44 education apps for K-6 students doing the best kind of learning math teachers hate and English-Language Arts teachers love: open-ended learning."

"There have been lots of ebooks published for the iPad. Many of them have really just been digital copies of traditional books with page turning and some music. The thing is, a lot of the ebooks have not really taken advantage of the touch and swipe environment. The interactivity available on the iPad is not often fully utilised for kids books. Here are a couple that combine fun stories and an element of interactivity."

5 Interesting Ways to Use iPad in The Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

5 Interesting Ways to Use iPad in The Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Mobile learning and apps in school education | Scoop.it

"After the tremendous success following the publication of " 9 starter tips for teachers who have just got a new iPad " iPad4schools has put forward this new graphic featuring a set of interesting ideas teachers and students can try during the 5 minutes, 5 days, and 5 weeks  'when introducing a new initiative or technology.'

With each digital tip an app or a couple more are suggested and which can better execute that idea. If you are thinking in Bloom's Taxonomy terms then I must say that most, if not all, of the apps included in this graphic correspond with the "creation" level in the Bloom's thinking continuum. I invite you to have a look and try out some of the ideas mentioned in this work."
