Spec-By-Spec Comparison: iPad vs. iPad Mini vs. Kindle Fire vs. Kindle Fire HD | Cult of Mac

Spec-By-Spec Comparison: iPad vs. iPad Mini vs. Kindle Fire vs. Kindle Fire HD | Cult of Mac | Tech and Teaching in the 21C World | Scoop.it

"At today’s Amazon event, Jeff Bezos dropped some whoppers on the industry: not only an upgraded Kindle Fire, but the Kindle Fire HD, a mother of a tablet that has a Retina-caliber display, serious horsepower, and a super low price starting at just $199 for the 7-inch model, $299 for the 8.9-inch model and $499 for a 32GB 8.9-inch model with LTE. Without a doubt, it’s clear Amazon is gunning for the iPad and the upcoming iPad mini, but how do the new Kindle Fires really stack up?"

40 Future Uses for Educational Technology [Infographic] | EdTech Magazine | Tech and Teaching in the 21C World | Scoop.it

Educators spend entire careers writing lesson plans and curricula to better prepare students for challenges they’ve yet to encounter.

With the rapid advancement of technology, the nature of these challenges changes almost daily. The U.S. Department of Labor reports that 65 percent of grade-school students will end up in jobs that haven’t been invented yet.

 

So, what exactly will the jobs of the future look like? And what must schools do to keep pace? Edudemic recently posted this infographic from Envisioning Tech, which maps out 40 ways education and technology will change over the next 30 years. Check it out.

iPads for Literacy & Learning resource for teachers

iPads for Literacy & Learning resource for teachers | Tech and Teaching in the 21C World | Scoop.it

Nicole Sprainger has created an iBook "iPads for Literacy & Learning" which has been developed to assist K-10 teachers in utilising the iPad in their classroom literacy learning programs. It recognises that our students live in an increasingly sophisticated and media-rich society, in which digital texts are ubiquitous. Our students need therefore to become multiliterate - to be critical consumers of digital media texts. They also need to develop the ability to construct new knowledge, communicating their own ideas and information by composing using digital tools and processes.

 

Nicole says the iBook itself is intended simply to be a stimulus - a spark to encourage teachers to consider some ways to provide explicit learning opportunities for their students to access, use, understand and create multimodal texts while utilising the iPad.

Free Web2.0 Tools That Require No Registration for Students - List | Diigo

Free Web2.0 Tools That Require No Registration for Students - List | Diigo | Tech and Teaching in the 21C World | Scoop.it

One of the common obstacles to using many Web 2.0 tools in elementary school and middle school classrooms is the registration requirement that those tools have. Fortunately, there are many good Web 2.0 tools that do not require registration. Nathan Hall has started to put together a Diigo list of Web 2.0 tools that do not require registration. When I saw the list yesterday it had 60 items. When I looked at the list this morning there were 101 items on the list. Take a look at Nathan's list and I think you'll find some new-to-you tools, I did.  Written by RICHARD BYRNE.  THANK YOU!
