4 Things To Consider As You Allow Phones in Class - Edudemic | St. Patrick's Professional Learning Network | Scoop.it
As a language teacher I find mobile phones are a great resource as a dictionary, a unique way to do homework and, for many of my students, an alternative way to take notes. I’ve been using them in my class for a while now and their presence is actually hardly noticed – so seamlessly is …

Creating and Managing Digital Portfolios i iPads in Education Ning

Creating and Managing Digital Portfolios i iPads in Education Ning | St. Patrick's Professional Learning Network | Scoop.it
"Polls continually reveal that employers are more interested in what you can do over what you studied and traditional resumes are slowly giving way to digital portfolios as the primary gauge of your employability. A portfolio is both a container and a presentation platform for your best work - whether that be written pieces, photography, videos, presentations, performances or anything else. There's no better place than school to start developing that portfolio and creating a system that enables students to edit and share digital portfolios should be high on your priority list."

Why we should be App Smashing! - Inside the classroom, outside the box!

Why we should be App Smashing! - Inside the classroom, outside the box! | St. Patrick's Professional Learning Network | Scoop.it
"“I am not a teacher, but an awakener.” Robert Frost ‘App Smashing’ (I have also heard it called App Synergy) was invented by Gregory Kulowiec. App Smashing is when students create content using a variety of apps for example smashing Tellagami and iMovie to make a video. Intro to App-Smashing from misterkling on Vimeo does a great job of explaining what App Smashing is more in-depth."

21 Quotes That Will Change the Way You See Education | inspirationfeed.com | St. Patrick's Professional Learning Network | Scoop.it
“ The moment you become aware of your existence, you start learning. In school, you are confined into a system that you trust will teach everything you should know. But, do you really know what education is or its role in your life? Find out what educators, writers, and philosophers have to say about it.”

The world's largest photo service just made its pictures free to use

The world's largest photo service just made its pictures free to use | St. Patrick's Professional Learning Network | Scoop.it
"If you go to the Getty Images website, you'll see millions of images, all watermarked. There are more than a hundred years of photography here, from FDR on the campaign trail to last Sunday's Oscars, all stamped with the same transparent square placard reminding you that you don't own the rights. If you want Getty to take off the watermark, you'll have to pay for it. Starting now, that's going to change. Getty Images is dropping the watermark for the bulk of its collection, in exchange for an open-embed program that will let users drop in any image they want, as long as the service gets to append a footer at the bottom of the picture with a credit and link to the licensing page. For a small-scale WordPress blog with no photo budget, this looks an awful lot like free stock imagery."

The Smart Way to Use iPads in the Classroom

The Smart Way to Use iPads in the Classroom | St. Patrick's Professional Learning Network | Scoop.it
"The school has an unconventional take on the iPad’s purpose. The devices are not really valued as portable screens or mobile gaming devices. Teachers I talked to seemed uninterested, almost dismissive, of animations and gamelike apps. Instead, the tablets were intended to be used as video cameras, audio recorders, and multimedia notebooks of individual students’ creations. The teachers cared most about how the devices could capture moments that told stories about their students’ experiences in school. Instead of focusing on what was coming out of the iPad, they were focused on what was going into it'
