What Students Can Actually DO With An iPad | Edudemic

What Students Can Actually DO With An iPad | Edudemic | Tech & Education | Scoop.it

Online, in workshops, and even with friends, I frequently get asked What can the iPad actually do? as a sort of challenge to the worth of the device. I would rather that they ask, What can you actually do with an iPad?

So last week, in preparing for the New England Reading Association Conference and the NYSCATE Mobile Learning Summit, I decided to change my approach. Rather than structure my presentations by tool, or by app, or even by project, I organized myself around desired student outcomes – aka. what students can actually do.

The Art of Online Storytelling

The Art of Online Storytelling | Tech & Education | Scoop.it

It’s all the craze these days, parallax scrolling single page websites. Sure they are over-done, but there are a few exceptional designers who have taken this effect and built a compelling story whilst creating a great user experience. Using several effects, and careful narration, you can subtly mesh into design techniques to create an experience that doesn’t make you feel that it’s just following trend.

 

These sites are more about the story and the emotion that a visitor gets from navigating than being hip. Designers have taken the next steps and moved past just design, it’s about capturing the visitor with content and creating something that is more than just clicks; connecting to the reader, giving them a visual storytelling adventure.
