This is an excellent collection of apps. I found two were new to me and I can't wait to explore them. Thanks for sharing.

Check out some of these great Apps for working with differentiated learners. Ask your librarian about getting these Apps on the iPads at your school.

Asking students to create or identify themselves through an avatar to explain how something works or how it is made allows students to package information in a way that it helps them to unpack knowledge. Becoming personally and emotionally invested helps to engage learners. They take ownership.

Carmen Arias 's curator insight, September 12, 12:05 PM

Students love creating their own avatars. Let´s practise with some of  these tools

Jim Lerman's curator insight, September 12, 2013 1:33 AM

The SAMR model enables the classification of level of technology use by educators: Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, Redefinition. It is rather similar to the 5 levels of tech integration described in the original Apple Classrooms of Tomorrow (ACOT) research: Entry (non- or hesitant use), Adoption, Adaptation, Appropriation, and Innovation. This post includes sample apps for each level of the SAMR model, which can be helpful for educators trying to get handle on how to use this framework productively.

A Better List Of Ideas For Project-Based Learning - TeachThought

A Better List Of Ideas For Project-Based Learning - TeachThought | Project Based Learning | Scoop.it

"

At TeachThought, we’re huge fans of project-based learning.

 

While there is no magic bullet of practice, program, or framework that automatically produces progressive and effective learning, what makes project-based learning exceptional is its flexibility. As it is, first and foremost, simply a curriculum planning tool, so much other “good stuff” that can support learning (game-based learning, learning simulations, place-based education, self-directed learning, etc.) can all be “embedded” in project-based learning.

 

With PBL, there is no “either/or” proposition: anything from open-ended,

play-based learning to data-driven, research-based instructional environments can all use PBL effectively."

JennaMRyan's curator insight, December 11, 2013 8:16 PM

This article is from TeachThought and they are huge fans of PBL.  This article says PBL is first and foremost simply a curriculum planning tool so other games and learning simulatinos can all be embedded in PBL.  There's no one size fits all way to appoach PBL but there are several great resources to help you along.  The article claims the heart and soul of PBL is genious of great project ideas including the purpose and audience of the project.  The following are a few of the items they suggest: create an interactive family tree from living family members, design an app, solve the problem of negative news, help local businesses increase environmental sustainability, dissect hte anatomy of viral web content and plan an MArs colony using current data from the MArtian landscape and atmosphere.

 

This resources seems to differ from the article Establishing a PBL Friendly Culture because it seems to say you can implement PBL in a classroom by having the kids do projects.  The other source I currated about Projects v. PBL would also be opposed to several notions mentioned in this article.  It looks like this resources give some awesome suggestions for great project ideas which it says is the heart and soul of PBL, so I will definily reference this resource in the future when I'm struggling to come up with ideas, but the philosophy behind the article seems slightly flawed compeared to the two articles previously mentioned.  I really liked this article for the ideas for projects.

Don’t use technology.… Do use technology.… - Mark Anderson's Blog

Don’t use technology.… Do use technology.… - Mark Anderson's Blog | Project Based Learning | Scoop.it
"Don’t get me wrong – given my Twitter ID it’s a given that I believe very strongly in using technology to support and enhance learning. The OED states that an evangelist is “a person who seeks to convert others to the Christian faith, especially by public preaching”, so ok… I might not be doing the Christian faith bit, but as an ‘ICT Evangelist’ I do believe that technology has the power to change our world and certainly the learning that takes place in our classrooms and beyond. There’s a problem though. There is a dichotomy of experiences, skills, beliefs and abilities when it comes to using technology in our classrooms. It’s written in to the United States Declaration of Independence that, “all men are born equal”, but it’s certainly not true when it comes to the experiences that our students receive in their lessons at the hands of some of our teachers and that’s before you even think about entering technology into the equation."
