Free Technology for Teachers: Six Weeks of iPad Apps for School (Or 46 apps I've liked)

Free Technology for Teachers: Six Weeks of iPad Apps for School (Or 46 apps I've liked) | Teaching and Learning English through Technology | Scoop.it

"Tomorrow marks six weeks since I officially launched my blog devoted to iPad apps for students and teachers. And since I won't win any awards for clever titles, I just called it iPad Apps for School. Since I launched the blog I've published 56 posts which is better than one per day. In the slideshow below I've organized 46 of the reviewed apps. The slideshow is organized in the following order: math apps, science apps, social studies apps, language arts apps, video apps, and productivity apps. Not all of the apps in this slideshow are free, but most of them are."

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: 7 Outstanding Free Books for your iPad

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: 7 Outstanding Free Books for your iPad | Teaching and Learning English through Technology | Scoop.it

"Below is a list of some excellent books for your iPad. I have curated this list over  the last couple of months and I kept adding to it every time I stumble upon a resource somewhere online.I don't know if you like reading books on your iPad or not but let me tell you this: having at least a couple of titles installed on your iPad would really be of great help particularly in those moments when you are stuck somewhere and have nothing to do but waiting. Reading is a habit ( luckily a good one ) that we can ACQUIRE  by force of habituation at least in the eyes of Skinnerian theory.The more you read , the fluent you get at reading and the more used your mind becomes to the act of reading."

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Excellent Resources on BYOD for Teachers

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Excellent Resources on BYOD for Teachers | Teaching and Learning English through Technology | Scoop.it

Mobile technology is making explosive growth into our schools and classrooms.There is now a growing trend towards taking advantage of mobile devices to inspire learning and promote students engagement, but the problem is that school districts can not cover the costs of these devices and to provide every student with a gadget would be out of their affordability particularly with the shrinking budgets being allocated for high tech materials.However, several initiatives have been taken to counter this financial block facing the implementation of mobile technology in classroom  and one of these initiatives is called BYOD ( Bring Your Own Device).
