The 55 Best Free Education Apps For iPad | TeachThought | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

"Finding apps isn’t difficult. Finding education apps is only a bit more challenging. Finding free education apps is also possible. Finding free education apps worth downloading is a different story entirely.

 

The following is our list for the 55 best apps for learning we can find. Some are formal learning–math drilling and phonics, for example–while others are RSS readers, social media platforms, and the like. Nonetheless, these represent the 55 best we could find as of Q1 2013."

For an institute the management and filtering of information is very important. Sure there are apps, sure they are free or cheap, but which ones are useful for students at University A.

Teaching ‘screenagers’ – how the digital world is changing learners

Teaching ‘screenagers’ – how the digital world is changing learners | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

If we really want our education systems to prepare students for tomorrow’s digital world, we should worry less about formats and instead focus on what to teach – or what not to teach. A few obvious candidates for omission would be spelling (thanks to spellcheckers), facts (available instantly and everywhere via the internet), and handwriting (who writes by hand these days?). Instead, why not teach them how to filter reliable from unreliable information, an essential skill for the Google generation? Or even how to see through misleading headlines?Do you agree or disagree??
