Bring schools to life with Aurasma app

Bring schools to life with Aurasma app | TeachingGrade2 | Scoop.it

"I’m assuming you’ve seen at least one of the eight Harry Potter films. In the films, one everyday magical experience is that photos are always moving as if they were video screens, even though they are ‘printed’ on paper. Newspaper photos act out the news event as film too, whilst you walk down the road reading. It seems so magical and yet, like so many things these days , there’s an app for that!"

Word Collage for iPad

Word Collage for iPad | TeachingGrade2 | Scoop.it

"We have seen plenty of word collage creators online in the past. Word collages help you get a better understanding about the words that show up more often in a piece of text. Word Collage for iPad is a pretty cool application that helps you create your own word collages fast. Just enter some text or a URL, and the app does the rest for you."

Making word collages is nothing new - Wordle has been out for ages, but this app provides an easy way of doing the same thing on an iPad without worry for formatting issues. 

Paula Jamieson's curator insight, October 15, 2013 9:18 PM

It doesn't seem that long ago that "Word Clouds" hit our computer screens in the shape of sites such as Worlde and Tagul etc but this app looks like it does the same for iPad. Again it comes down to "Purpose" - what are you using it for and how are you linking your Word Cloud with other apps etc? Otherwise this app is merely 'Substitution' on the SAMR model isn't it - a fancy list of words.

Phonics Studio - A Great App for Learning to Pronounce Words

Phonics Studio - A Great App for Learning to Pronounce Words | TeachingGrade2 | Scoop.it

"Phonics Studio is a free iPad app that has received glowing reviews from speech-language pathologists. The app provides more than 2,500 flashcards that students can use to practice pronouncing more than 200 sounds. After opening the app students select a letter from the alphabet then a sound. Each sound has a collection of flashcards. To practice pronunciation students can listen to a recording and then create their own recordings (open the preferences panel to turn on the built-in recordings). The person working with a student can mark the student’s recording correct or incorrect."

Mobile Friendly Classrooms - TECHCHEF | TeachingGrade2 | Scoop.it

`As I somewhat overtly stated in the last post, I now reside as an Ed Tech at Westlake HS. While I am still acclimating to the size of the campus and getting to know the staff and students, I did have a chance to drop in on a few classrooms piloting a mobile-friendly seating solution. Interested in gleaning initial findings from both the teachers and the students, I gathered a bit of anecdotal and pictorial data. The complete article can be found on the Eanes WHS WIFI blog but I will share a few of the highlights here.``

Jennifer Shackles's curator insight, September 23, 2013 1:44 PM

Each time I look at one of these good ideas, I begin to think about "how do we use the technology and train teachers how to make the same accommodations we expected them to make with the traditional materials?"  Has using technology kept up with the linguistic adaptations some of our ELLs need or is that "translate everything" mentality still out there. Are there enough "tricks" built into the programs and apps?  I am just thinking out loud since I am not a tech geek.

Increasing Math Literacy with iPads

Increasing Math Literacy with iPads | TeachingGrade2 | Scoop.it

"Math and I don’t get along.  While we are civil out of necessity, I make it a practice not to do math in public.  It just never turns out well. I think our disharmony can be traced back to the early beginnings of our relationship when my second grade teacher would smack our knuckles with a ruler if we used our fingers when adding.  I was terrified of her and I soon became terrified of math.  It’s been a rocky road ever since.

 

So how ironic that my 100th blog post (insert big fanfare here!) is about math.  I don’t want my students to be afraid of math, nor do I want them to share the same ambivalent feelings I have."

Reflections on Teaching, Learning, and Technology: Tis the season to be journaling

Reflections on Teaching, Learning, and Technology: Tis the season to be journaling | TeachingGrade2 | Scoop.it

"I'm not sure if I've ever written about this particular app, but it is one of my all time favorites for 1st graders (or 2nd and 3rd graders), it is called, iDiary. It's a $1.99 in the app store but in my opinion, so worth the cost. If you are in a 4-5 iPad classroom, the app will allow you to put up to 6 students on the app.
From iTunes: " iDiary for kids is a daily journal at its core- kids can express themselves periodically: writing, drawing, decorating entries with stickers. They can easily navigate to their old entries and explore their past musings or post entries for future events through an intuitive calendar navigation system""

19 Dr. Seuss iPad Reading Apps Organized By Text Level - TeachThought

19 Dr. Seuss iPad Reading Apps Organized By Text Level - TeachThought | TeachingGrade2 | Scoop.it

"Elementary readers–both early, emerging, and independent–are all likely familiar with Dr. Seuss.

 

From the sing-song meter and mesmerizing cadence, to the outrageous narratives that keep readers engaged, Dr. Seuss books are a staple for elementary school class libraries, and children’s bookshelves at home.

 

Bringing him into the 21st century are reading apps–usually digital versions of books with mild interactivity added on. Listly user Katherine Page Burdick has gone through the trouble of linking to each of these apps on the iTunes app store, and further separating them by independent reading level. Brilliant! If you agree, give her a follow on Listly letting her know."

"When the second grade students in Courtney Woods class were studying places tourists like to visit, they wondered how they could get more people to visit their small Canadian town of Bathurst. Their teacher knew this was a great idea and discussed with the class the importance of sustainable tourism. The class decided they wanted to help Bathurst become more of a tourist attraction and do so in part by connecting to the larger world so more people would know to come to their great home... The end result was phenomenal."
