Using iMovie to Introduce New Topics

Using iMovie to Introduce New Topics | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it

"So after years of always being asked “what are we doing next sir?” and “what is that?”  I thought it would be a good idea to create some promo videos that I can share with students to introduce what they will be doing next and develop a sense of excitement about what is coming up.

 

To do this i chose iMovie on my iPad as it is really simple to create professional looking trailers."

How to move your iPhone and iPad backups to an external drive -iMore | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it

"If you sync your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch on your Mac, you know that the first thing iTunes does is back it up (unless you've told it not to). Depending on the size of your device and how much data you have stored on it, this can gobble up dozens of gigabytes of space. Did you know you can move those backups to an external hard drive? You can, and we can walk you through how. "

Comfortably 2.0: Creating & App Smashing with App Dice

Comfortably 2.0: Creating & App Smashing with App Dice | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it

"I have to give all the credit for this awesome idea to Ryan Read.  Ryan is an Integration Specialist in Illinois and boy does he have some great ideas! I ran across his #appdice idea while perusing my Twitter stream last Spring and was immediately intrigued. 

It's a simple way to get students to creating in your classroom and#appsmashing.  I wanted to create a set of my own geared towards using the iPad to create, so I  created two types of die for my set (and other sets I created and gave out to our teachers). One die has six "creation" apps, while the second die has six "showcase" apps. "

From Tony Vincent. Learning in Hand TCC 4-1

Podcasting was my first exposure to Tony Vincent (@learninginhand, @tonyvincent or on FB) and his website. He still has the most amazing lesson plan for a podcast about your town. 

But as you can see there is a Twitter feed and FaceBook addition. A blog page has instructions on ideas you can use in class. QR code cubes for selecting a reflection topic, ipad uses, instagrams 10 feet long, jigsaw puzzle makers, and on and on…

This made me sit up with interest. Home made and imperfect videos for learning have more impact than slick, commercial ones if a few simple rules are followed. A must read!

The Device Debate: What Tablet Is Right For Classrooms? | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it

"What tablet is right for your classroom? In the interest of providing some real-world concrete examples, we’ve tested a few of the tablets we think would make a decent fit in most modern classrooms. We chose one tablet for each major operating system and tried to ensure each had a price that was reasonable for a school or district’s budget."

Managing iPad Videos in Schools- Visual Guide for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Managing iPad Videos in Schools- Visual Guide for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it

""Managing iPad YouTube in Schools" is a visual guide created by iPadWells 

from iPad4Schools.  

 

In this guide iPadWells walks teachers through the process they use in their school to create, share and teach using videos. YouTube is the principal video hosting used in this guide. That being said, it does not mean that the guide is not relevant for your teaching situation even if YuTube is banned in your school. You can still benefit from the tips and ideas provided by iPadWells on how to create enhanced videos using a wide variety of apps and share them with students who can access them at home."
