5 Apps for Making Movies on Mobile Devices - Edutopia | Rethinking how Teachers Teach and Students Learn | Scoop.it

"Every year at Hollywood award shows, we see fantastic movies celebrated for their rich storytelling and dynamic performances. Your students can become moviemakers, too, thanks to some powerful apps for mobile devices. With these tools, your children can take videos and edit their work to make professional quality movies using iOS devices (iPads and iPhones) and Android tablets."

Lou Salza's curator insight, March 5, 2014 8:27 AM

Those of us who work with students who have print challenges can offer opportunities to tell their stories without the delays of language processing commonly associated with dyslexia. Once students are using the video technology, they can incorporate storyboards and scripts to advance and integrate language skills. --Lou

 

Excerpt: "....Your students can become moviemakers, too, thanks to some powerful apps for mobile devices. With these tools, your children can take videos and edit their work to make professional quality movies using iOS devices (iPads and iPhones) and Android tablets.

One good thing about this easy-to-use technology is that students can still use important English language arts skills like writing a narrative, planning a sequential story, and including key details when getting ready to make a movie. These apps can enhance the work that you are doing with children in the classroom and give them room to be creative storytellers...."

Keep Your Kids Safe When They’re Using a Smartphone - MakeUseOf.com

Keep Your Kids Safe When They’re Using a Smartphone  - MakeUseOf.com | Rethinking how Teachers Teach and Students Learn | Scoop.it

"Nowadays, kids want to use smartphones. Of course, most parents aren’t willing to actually buy their kids a device, but plenty have no problem letting them play with one. Of course, when a child uses a cell phone they can potentially be exposed to all kinds of dangerous things that aren’t meant for young eyes.

But the risks aren’t just for the children, but they can affect you, the parents, too. Kids could make unwanted in-app purchases, make calls to people you don’t want to talk to, they could even share photos you don’t want the world to see, and they can do plenty of other bad things. So what can you do? Check out the infographic below for the answers."

Code and programming may not be the most important topics on the planet but it is an area of study that sufferers two major problems. one: an industry with millions of unfilled job positions and two: a world where not enough teachers feel confident to run programming projects.

6 Great iPad Apps to Enhance Students Critical and Strategic Thinking Skills - EdTech & MLearning | Rethinking how Teachers Teach and Students Learn | Scoop.it
In today’s post we have curated for you a collection of some wonderful iPad games to boost students critical thinking skills and enhance their cognitive abilities. Playing these games, students will be able to engage with a variety of mental and abstract forms of reasoning where they will need to use their strategic and problem solving skills to find answers. While they are so much fun to play they are also a great way to help students approach the world from a critical thinking perspective. Have a look and share with your colleagues.

Free Technology for Teachers: Convert PDFs to Google Docs to Differentiate Instructional Materials

Free Technology for Teachers: Convert PDFs to Google Docs to Differentiate Instructional Materials | Rethinking how Teachers Teach and Students Learn | Scoop.it
Recently, we discovered a feature of Google Drive that has changed how we prepare and access materials and resources for our students. As we attempt to make all curricula digital and thus make it available to all students, the idea of using PDFs was always a problem. PDFs are just not editable in most situations, and this was an issue when it came to modifying and differentiating documents. Adobe Acrobat was our “go to” application for this type of conversion, but it was costly and often hard to come by in an educational setting. Note: We still use Adobe Acrobat for complex projects or documents that do not convert well in Google Drive. With the most recent update to Google Drive, OCR (Optical Character Recognition) capabilities are better and easier than ever.

iPad App of the Week: CARROT Weather – Talking Forecast Robot | iPad Insight

iPad App of the Week: CARROT Weather – Talking Forecast Robot | iPad Insight | Rethinking how Teachers Teach and Students Learn | Scoop.it
This week’s pick is CARROT Weather – Talking Forecast Robot -  a wise-cracking, snark serving ‘weatherbot’ in the form of an iPad app.

Now there are plenty of very good iPad weather apps – from those with beautiful still and video imagery to others with copious amounts of detailed maps and comprehensive weather information. But … CARROT Weather serves up the weather with a healthy dose of sarcasm and humor – and that’s quite a nice new spin on a weather app.

This technology is an extension of Google and can be shared across devices which makes its use so much more influential. By synchronizing all of your schedules and creating "To-Do" lists allows you to prioritize and manage your time more effectively; allowing you to become a better teacher.

This will include resources from all of the best sources, from Apple’s own stuff to TeachThought to edutopia to MindShift to DMLCentral to Jackie Gerstein and more. We can update it, or make it a wiki to crowdsource the process, or you can add suggestions in the comments below.
