The (3) best ways to share information from your iPad

The (3) best ways to share information from your iPad | TechLib | Scoop.it
With iOS 8, Apple expanded the iPad’s ability to share information in many different ways.  This has long been a frequently requested feature that was already available on various other mobile platforms in one form or another.  Sharing information and data, in any form, can be a very useful tool for all iPad owners.  I want to discuss three of the best ways iPad users can share information, and the processes they can use to make this possible.

Engage Students with ThingLink Video | Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners

Engage Students with ThingLink Video | Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners | TechLib | Scoop.it

In Week 5 of the ThingLink Teacher Challenge participants are encouraged to design a media rich guided learning experience to engage students with ThingLink Video. These annotated video lessons work well because they allow students to progress at their own pace, providing opportunities for review and challenge. Once a ThingLink Video lesson is created and published, it can be accessed at school or at home as an extension of the classroom. Best of all, these lessons can be powered by Google Docs to provide data, student accountability, and opportunities for feedback.

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal | TechLib | Scoop.it
A higher-order thinker is a critical thinker. What are the attributes of a critical thinker? In The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking Concepts and Tools, Richard Paul and Linda Elder describe a well-cultivated critical thinker as someone who:
raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively; comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; andcommunicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems.

This creative-commons licensed site is chock-full of ideas for how kids can show off what they know by CREATING it!  Very exciting.  Plus, I like that they called it "media."  Good idea.  Put the media in our own hands!
