Great way to explore Explain Everything for someone new to the all and it's many uses in the classroom.

Paul Fuller's curator insight, March 21, 2014 7:45 PM

This meets my criteria for a near-perfect educational app. Can be used from K-7 across multiple learning areas. Not free but, if you can only afford to buy one app for your school's iPads, this should probably be it.

This is a fantastic tool for engaging anyone with picture or video for behavioral feedback, or for social stories and language development.  Very easy to operate and free.  Social stories for kids are a snap.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, March 23, 2014 12:16 PM

This is a guest post from Greg Kulowiec of EdTechTeacher.org, an advertiser on Free Technology for Teachers. 

Publishing student video that is created with iPads can be a challenging process, especially with younger students. Even schools that are Google Apps typically decide to turn off YouTube uploads to the student accounts. However, with the use of a handful of free applications, students can create video content on iPad, share their creation with a teacher, and then have the teacher upload to their YouTube channel or a class YouTube channel.

38 Of The Best Educational Games For iPad - TeachThought

38 Of The Best Educational Games For iPad - TeachThought | Apps in Education | Scoop.it

"School is a time in a students life where they are learning as much about how to be students and operate successfully in a school as they are about how to read, write, and think. But oftentimes, the demand for pure academic instruction and practice can fly in the face for a student’s need–at any age–to play, build, interact, explore, and construct their own learning experience.

 

Issues like these can make mobile technology like tablets a boon to learning, as they can allow individual access to the right app–and the right content, creative opportunity, game, or learning simulation–at the right time. It is the collision of the need for interaction, personalization, creativity, and constant feedback that can make video games powerful tools for learning–and the following 38 games, curated by Sam Gliksman–and excellent place to start."

First Head-to-Head Comparison of iOS Vs. Android Educational Apps Shows iOS Has Superior Apps, but Barely

First Head-to-Head Comparison of iOS Vs. Android Educational Apps Shows iOS Has Superior Apps, but Barely | Apps in Education | Scoop.it

"AppoLearning also conducted the first head-to-head comparison of top apps for educational categories for iOS vs. Android. With the exception of early childhood categories, Android is in a virtual dead heat with iOS for the top 5 apps per categories as selected by experts.

 

"These results were quite surprising to us; we had all heard stories of the lack of great Android apps in Education for some time; but the reality is you can find great apps for Android Tablets and Android Phones in addition to iPhones and iPads," said Alan Warms, founder of Appolicious, Inc., producer of appoLearning. "For the first time, consumers can easily compare platforms by category to find the best educational apps as determined by teachers.""
