Croak.it! So amazing I can’t imagine life without it! | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it

"Croak.it is a free website that allows the user to record 30 second audio clips.  The audio recording is then uploaded to a personalized website and available to anyone who has the link.  The developers created the site for users to  “Push. Speak. Share.” and the simplicity is amazing.  Even more unbelievable is that Croak.it also has a FREE app available for iPhone and Android!"

How to choose between iPads and Chromebooks in the classroom - Daily Genius | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it
The race to be the go-to technology in your classroom is more than heating up. It’s on fire. Like, someone grab a fire extinguisher because the race is ablaze. The two biggest contestants in this race are, not surprisingly, products from Apple and Google.

Both Apple and Google are in a high-stakes race to own the education ecosystem. They’re going about it in different ways but their goals are the same: to have their products used by the next generation.

7 Ideas to Tech Out Learning

7 Ideas to Tech Out Learning | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it

Innovation… Versatility… Performance… What teacher doesn’t want to provide the best technology has to offer for students? But with a plethora of choices, sometimes it’s overwhelming trying to determine what device best suits the needs of all learners. So, what should educators choose—the power of a laptop or the compact, lightweight portability of a tablet? Well, it’s no longer necessary to settle for one option when the best of both worlds are at your fingertips.

How Amazon Plans to Kindle the Fire of eLearning with Interactive Textbooks

How Amazon Plans to Kindle the Fire of eLearning with Interactive Textbooks | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it

"Let’s face it: In the learning world, textbooks are probably more akin to a sleeping pill than a shot of espresso. Traditionally dry and wordy textbooks can actively disengage a motivated learner who wants to touch, see, hear, and experience learning material via something more than words. What’s more, textbooks can seem daunting: Thick, unwieldy, and full of scholar-speak, it’s pretty rare to find someone who is excited to dive into Biology 101 with gusto."

10 Reasons Schools Should Still be Using iPads - Ed Tech Today

10 Reasons Schools Should Still be Using iPads - Ed Tech Today | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it
After its launch the iPad quickly became the darling of the K-12 education community. Schools and teachers quickly saw the opportunities that it afforded students and jumped to get them into their hands. Fast forward a few years and it seems that a lot of schools have relegated the iPad to a supporting role or ditched them entirely. As mentioned elsewhere this is primarily due to a lack of clear vision, a misunderstanding of what the iPad is and an imiginative, uninspiring curriculum.

While the iPad may no longer be the technology de jour in certain circles it is impossible to ignore what a compelling device the iPad is. So, why is the iPad still the best choice for schools, teachers and students.

I think that while you do get quality for your money with the iPad, you can also get good Android tablets for a lot less. The biggest reason I am still a proponent of iPads in school instead of  Android tablets(our school has both) is that at present, the quality and availability of apps  for the iPad, in particular those that focus on creative multimedia is by far greater than for Android.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 1, 8:33 AM

Where will technology make the biggest impact on education? This post shares nine areas, based on research, where the use of technology is making an impact.

What are the ten areas? Below is a list of the top five. Find additional information on each by clicking through to the post, as well as links to other resources.

1. Critical Thinking - In this area four kinds of thinking are discussed: Analogical, Expressive Experiential, and Problem Solving.

2. Mobile Learning

3. Access to Education

4. Continuous Feedback

5. Unlimited and Immediate Learning

Please note that the title on the post days there are ten areas, but number four is missing in the document (or there are only nine areas). I renumbered the areas above so that they are consecutive.

Norton Gusky's curator insight, March 2, 7:27 AM

Ten examples of how technology makes learning more impactful. Examples include : critical thinking, mobile learning, learning to learn, continuous feedback, and global awareness.

Matthew M.'s curator insight, March 4, 12:32 AM

This post relates to the readings because it talks about the way critical thinking is important to acquiring knowledge and how technology affects our learning. One of the significant aims of education is to produce learners who are well informed, that is to say, learners should understand ideas that are important, useful, beautiful and powerful. Another is to create learners who have the appetite the appetite to think analytically and critically, to use what they know to enhance their own lives and also to contribute to their society, culture and civilization.

Tocomail is a great tool for teachers and students that I first shared last year.  It is a communication tool that gives students the opportunity to message their classmates and teacher in a closed network that is tightly monitored.  With TocoMail teachers can created a “walled garden” of class communication using computers and tablets.  Students will get a safe email account and can benefit from learning communication strategies and how to be a good digital citizen in safe environment.
