iPads in Primary Education: Explain Everything: Developing drama, role play and communication in EYFS.

iPads in Primary Education: Explain Everything: Developing drama, role play and communication in EYFS. | Rhythm, Literacy, Neuroscience, Creativity, Technology, Learning cultures | Scoop.it

"The iPad app “Explain Everything” is an extremely versatile and flexible tool and has so many applications in the classroom. It is a screencasting app which allows narrated recordings of the iPad screen to be exported and shared as videos. The potential for this is huge. This example describes how the app has been used in an Early Years Foundation Setting to allow children to retell and act out traditional stories."

Simple and easy way to create an e-book. I would love to get some feedback from someone who created a book with Book Creator.

This would be a great tool for someone who's looking to put their content into an e-book. It's a simple and easy way to create and share on.

Goodproduct, but if we are going to ask faculty to turn their study guides into ebooks they will need time and often they will need support to get the full benefit of the multimedia available.

Personally (and publicly) I have coined a phrase: 'rush to implement,' which aptly describes our federal, state, and district political systems enacting Race to the Top, Common Core, and Big Data Assessments. People without much background in Learning Sciences are influenced by big money and trying to solve a problem that they don't understand. Unfortunately, they are also under the influence of a failing textbook business that has been disrupted by new technologies.
