Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal | Skolbiblioteket och lärande | Scoop.it
A higher-order thinker is a critical thinker. What are the attributes of a critical thinker? In The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking Concepts and Tools, Richard Paul and Linda Elder describe a well-cultivated critical thinker as someone who:
raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively; comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; andcommunicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems.

Be aware you need to have an Office 365 subscription to edit and create documents and they take up a lot of space on the iPad with each one being over 200MB.

Developing a Mobile App? Follow These 12 Tips for Protecting and Securing User Data | SBA.gov

Developing a Mobile App? Follow These 12 Tips for Protecting and Securing User Data | SBA.gov | Skolbiblioteket och lärande | Scoop.it

1. Appoint a security lead

 

2. Review the data you intend to collect and maintain

 

3. Understand the differences between mobile platforms

 

4. Don’t rely on a platform alone to protect your users

 

5. Create secure user credentials

 

6. Encrypt any data that is transmitted

 

7. Exercise caution and use due diligence on libraries and other third-party code

 

8. Consider protecting data you store on a user’s device

 

9. Protect your servers, too

 

10. Don’t store passwords in plain text

 

11. You’re not done once you release your app.  Stay aware and communicate with your users

 

12. If you’re dealing with financial data, health data, or kids’ data, make sure you understand applicable standards and regulations

 

If your app deals with kids’ data, health data, or financial data, ensure you’re complying with relevant rules and regulations, which are more complex. The FTC offers details on the regulations that your business needs to be aware of in the following guides:

Children’s PrivacyGramm-Leach-Bliley ActHealth Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Security RuleHealth Breach Notification Rule

Cool New App Lets You Make Futuristic Comics on the Fly | Storytelling

Cool New App Lets You Make Futuristic Comics on the Fly | Storytelling | Skolbiblioteket och lärande | Scoop.it
Last week, Pocket Gems’ storytelling app Episode registered its 500,000th writer—not bad for a product that launched less than six months ago. While many of those half-million would-be creators are obviously amateurs, veterans of Marvel Comics and the CW’s Supernatural have signed up to created interactive animated serials, what Pocket Gems CEO Daniel Terry describes…

 

How Episode works is simple; readers download the app (via Apple’s App Store,Google Play or the Amazon App Store), select one of the available stories—choosing from “Hollywood Crush,” “Campus Crush,” “Rich Witches,” “In A Perfect World,” or “Stranded at Sea”—and follow along, safe in the knowledge that, at certain points in the story, you’ll get to make choices that decide what happens next.
