The 55 Best Free Education Apps For iPad | TeachThought

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.

carldowse's curator insight, July 10, 2013 7:11 AM

Edmodo provides a simple to set-up, easy to use virtual learning environment which is especially suited to smaller groups. It's a hosted service (unlike Moodle) and works quite well on mobile devices. If you're thinking of offering a blended learning package to your learners then it's a good place to start.

Anne-Mart Olsen's curator insight, July 10, 2013 7:12 AM

I found that edmodo was particularly useful, as student easily identified with the platform.

iPad App Evaluation for the Classroom

The app development market is exploding. More and more companies are creating “educational apps”. In some cases, they are simply digital versions of a book or a web based tool. Some seem to have “no educational value” to it at all, but are still sold under the label of “education”. These apps need to be evaluated.

What Students And Parents Think About Mobile Technology - Edudemic

What Students And Parents Think About Mobile Technology - Edudemic | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

Look around at any restaurant or mall and it’s easy to see: adults are always connected to their mobile devices. But as this technology becomes even more ingrained in our lives, what can we expect for our children? Studies show that – used wisely – technology can be an important part of their everyday lives as well.

 

Check out the infographic below to see how mobile technology is integrated into the lives of even the youngest kids.

 


Via Carisa Kluver
Coolwired's insight:

  Mobile technology is still so new, in education. It is everywhere in our daily lives, but what are the effects on children's learning skills? How does it affect their social attitudes and physical growth? The Pros and Cons are still being studied and determined. Tell me what you think.
