5 iPad Hashtags Teachers should Know about

5 iPad Hashtags Teachers should Know about | Teacher Tech Toolbox | Scoop.it

- #iPadded
This is a hashtag I have been following for some time now. I check it for updates, links and resources on everything related to iPad. Most of the things shared through #iPadded are relevant for us in education.

2- #Edapps, #eduapps
These hashtags are good for teachers looking for educational apps. Though I provided the two versions of the same hashtag I personally use #edapps.

3- #iPadedu
As its name indicate #iPadedu is a hashtag for sharing tweets related to the use of iPad in education.

4- #Kidsapp
This one is for sharing links to iPad apps for kids.

5- #iPadchat
Use this hashtag to read and take part in chats around iPad.

Teachers Guide on The Use of Mobile Devices in The Classroom

Teachers Guide on The Use of Mobile Devices in The Classroom | Teacher Tech Toolbox | Scoop.it

"CELL PHONES IN THE CLASSROOM: A BOON OR BLIGHT?
It’s a question many educators are facing these days. The Common Core State Standards call for students to develop digital media and technology skills. One way to help them reach that goal: incorporate gadgets they’re already familiar with — cell phones, tablets, and smartphones — into their learning environment. “The big potential with mobile is that it really is the primary portal for social communication right now,” says Mimi Ito, a cultural anthropologist in the departments of anthropology and informatics at the University of
California Irvine and John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation chair in Digital Media and Learning. “Young people learn best when it’s relevant to them, when there’s social connection tied to it, and when they actually have a personal interest.” "
