50 Resources For Teaching With iPads - Te@chThought

50 Resources For Teaching With iPads - Te@chThought | School & Learning Today | Scoop.it
So we thought we’d start an ongoing collection–that is, one that is updated to reflect trends and changes–of the best resources for teaching with the iPad.

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. Based on the activity of the comments, and the sharing of the post, we’ll decide how to handle it moving forward.

Brian Romero Smith's curator insight, October 15, 2014 2:27 PM

Great resource for a 1:1 iPad classroom/school. However, this is a great model for any 1:1 setup. You truly need to consider the Teacher/Student/Parent paradigm when deciding on applications that enhance the learning environment. Where there is not workflow vision the people will perish.

101 Ways For Teachers To Be More Creative - TeachThought

101 Ways For Teachers To Be More Creative - TeachThought | School & Learning Today | Scoop.it

Creativity isn’t always something that just happens. It can take quite a bit of work to nurture, grow, and develop creativity, even for those who are immersed in creative and dynamic fields.

For educators, it can be even more of a challenge to inspire creativity in students or embrace your own creativity while trying to juggle academic requirements, testing, and other issues in the classroom. It may be difficult but it’s certainly not impossible, and accomplishing it can help to create a classroom environment that’s more motivational, interesting, and educational for both you and your students.

So how do you get there? Here are some tips that can help you get creative in the classroom in a variety of ways.

Sounding Box #11: a littleBits Project by Caselden_Studios

Sounding Box #11: a littleBits Project by Caselden_Studios | School & Learning Today | Scoop.it
Sounding Box #11 is the first piece to go public in a series of acoustic sculptures that allow viewers to make environment-specific music in real-time. This is an interactive sculpture that generates ambient tones in response to shadows. As viewers approach the sculpture and move to cast shadows in different places, the instrument responds by vibrating strings to make different sounds.

The sculpture is intended to provide a creative, calming experience for participants. Viewers can improvise, producing ambient sounds for their surrounding environment.

The structure of the piece is influenced by traditional stringed instruments. It uses electromagnets to vibrate strings and produce sound. We used littleBits to control the electromagnets.
