Team Shake - A Random Name and Team Selection App - iPad Apps for School | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it

"Team Shake is an iPad app for randomly selecting names to create teams or to select an individual name. On Team Shake you can create rosters by manually entering names or by importing a list of names. When you are ready to choose teams just select the number of teams that you want created, shake your iPad, and then each person is randomly assigned to a team."

50 Apps for the Foreign Language Classroom - teachingwithipad.org | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it

"I enjoy discussing iPad and other edtech resources with my colleague and friend Sylvia Duckworth almost every week through Twitter. Sylvia is a leader in the French teaching community in Canada, and has created an enormous amount of resources for language teachers to use. I asked her if she wanted to collaborate on this post, and she quickly agreed to do so. Below is a list of iPad apps that we both use in our language classrooms. The ones marked with an * are the essential, must-have ones. We have divided the list into two categories: Content consumption apps and content creation apps."

How To Overcome The iPad Learning Curve - Teachers With Apps

How To Overcome The iPad Learning Curve - Teachers With Apps | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it

" Technology can make life a lot easier in the classroom. In the past criticism was often aimed at new technology coming into the classroom, recent advances in tech have made drastic changes to the learning environment.


This has actually been the case for numerous generations. When televisions were introduced to schools and kindergartens, many people were outraged at the invasion of technology into the educational process but of course, television became an integral part of the learning process. It is therefore fair to say that when used properly, tablets such as the iPad can be used effectively in the classroom."

Still Think You Can't Do Real Work On The iPad? A Lot Has Changed Since 2010 | Cult of Mac

Still Think You Can't Do Real Work On The iPad? A Lot Has Changed Since 2010 | Cult of Mac | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it

"Back when I worked exclusively on my iPad, writing posts for Cult of Mac and everything related to that, I had a hell of a time getting some things done. It seemed like every tiny step needed to be researched before I could get anything done.

 

In the end, I quit and went back to a split iPad/iMac setup, but not for the reasons you might think.

 

Now, when I take my iPad out to work, like when we visit a trade show or I go traveling for a few days, I don’t even have to think about it. So much has changed in the last couple of years that the iPad really is as capable as a Mac for many jobs – and you don’t have to be a nerd to do it."

iPad as the Teacher's Pet - Version 2.0 - Learning in Hand | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it

"An iPad can be a teacher’s very handy assistant! Last year I published an infographic titled "iPad as the Teacher’s Pet” and I have updated it to version 2.0. It’s all about what can be done by Pad-using educators, whether or not their students have iPads. It is divided into seven sections:

    Show on a Big Screen
    Manage the Classroom
    Assess Student Work
    Interact with Students
    Manage Your Files
    Make Instructional Media
    Learn New Things"

Why You Should Care About M-Learning

Why You Should Care About M-Learning | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it

"Mobile learning is becoming increasingly popular in the workplace. There are a variety of reasons for this, but many have to do with the accessibility of mobile devices, the savings associated with a mobile enabled learning program, and the convenience mobile learning affords the learner. In fact, today if there is a learning management system (or courses) that do not perform on mobile devices, it is borderline in-excusable. In five years time, it will be flat-out archaic."

Good article about why companies need to start adopting mobile training. Some of the information echoes what I have in my e-learning presentation slides from last week! Technology is moving fast, and we have to move fast with it or fall severely behind. The infographic in this article is rather good.
