Create and edit iPad video for free with Pinnacle Studio 2.0

Create and edit iPad video for free with Pinnacle Studio 2.0 | Tech in Education | Scoop.it

Want to edit video on your iPad? Apple's $4.99 iMovie is the go-to choice for most folks. But now there's another option, and it won't cost you a penny.
Pinnacle Studio 2.0 for iPad used to be Avid Studio for iPad, and it used to cost $4.99, same as iMovie. Now owned by Corel, it's now free -- and even better than before.
Pinnacle Studio lets you arrange and edit your photos and videos, ultimately turning disparate elements into a cohesive whole.
If you've ever worked with Pinnacle Studio on your PC, you'll feel right at home with the app's similarly straightforward interface. Though you can work with it in portrait view, landscape offers the better layout, with the top half of the screen devoted to your media and a preview window and the bottom half reserved for storyboarding.
To build a movie, you simply drag a photo, video clip, transition effect, title, or song to the storyboard or timeline, then arrange those elements to your liking.
The app also lets you trim clips, overlay sound effects and voice recordings, add custom pan-and-zoom effects, and so on. It supplies a handful of motion and static titles, but you can edit things like colors, fonts, and sizes to create more-customized text. Unfortunately, I could find no way to overlay a title on a photo or video; it seems you're limited to title cards that bookend them.

Hands On With the iPad Mini

Hands On With the iPad Mini | Tech in Education | Scoop.it

From Sacha Segan, PC Magazine:

 

"Apple's trying to create a new market with the iPad mini: premium small tablets. Its chief tools are the mini's spectacular, nearly surreal build quality and its amazing array of apps. But unlike other Apple products, the mini isn't necessarily a slam-dunk because of its high price and odd ergonomics. I spent a little while with it at the launch event; here's what I think."

Odds are someone is searching the web for you right now, or at least has looked you up fairly recently. Do you know what they learned? Better yet, do you control the pages and profiles they visited?

Run the iOS Simulator in your Web Browser

Run the iOS Simulator in your Web Browser | Tech in Education | Scoop.it

You can run the iOS Simulator app in any Windows browser and test your web designs without even having an iOS device.

,...

The iOS Simulator is primarily targeted at Apple developers for them to develop iPad and iPhone apps on a Mac. That said, if you create websites, you can also use the iOS Simulator app to test your web designs on an iPhone or iPad without actually having the device. The iOS Simulator includes the native Safari app that is very close to the real thing.

The iOS Simulator app is only available for the Mac but if you are Windows or Linux, you can use the Browser Stack tool to run the “official” iOS Simulator directly in your web browser without installing any software.

To get started, create an account at Browser Stack and then choose “iOS” as the platform. Put your website URL in the input box and choose an iOS device – they offer the iPhone 3GS/4/4S/5 and iPad 1/2/3 loaded with various version of iOS. You can also switch devices while you are inside the iOS Simulator (see the above screenshot).

...

Unlike the fake emulators, what you are now using i very similar to the actual Safari app that available on a physical iOS device except that you have to use the mouse and not touch gestures to interact with the app.

The free plan offers 30 minutes of testing. And in addition to the iOS Simulator, Browser Stack also includes emulators for various Android devices.

Managing Online Project Submissions with Dropbox Links

Managing Online Project Submissions with Dropbox Links | Tech in Education | Scoop.it

"During the last days of the semester, my inbox tends to collapse under the weight of submitted final projects, and every now and then I have the dreaded “limit exceeded” warning show up just as a deadline hits. I get emails with projects delivered in just about every form imaginable, and there are always several that don’t work at all–particularly since my university has a policy about destroying any zip file that makes its way into an email attachment. Thus I was excited to see the recent improvement to Dropbox extending the ability to link and share files."

Adobe Partners with Sir Ken Robinson & How Do You Define Creativity: - Teachers With Apps

Adobe Partners with Sir Ken Robinson & How Do You Define Creativity: - Teachers With Apps | Tech in Education | Scoop.it

From the website

 

"Adobe has partnered with Sir Ken Robinson, the internationally known author and creativity expert, to develop an exclusive five-part video series outlining his thoughts on the importance and power of creativity in education. You may be familiar with this gifted speaker as he has done several Ted Talks. This is an amazing clip and the fact that Adobe partners with Sir Ken Robinson and showcases his take on, how do you define creativity, really puts this topic in the forefront. Sir Ken Robinson’s chat about changing educational paradigms, and how schools are killing creativity goes hand-in-hand with our recent focus on apps and creativity."
