TECHCHEF: App Integration Snapshots

TECHCHEF: App Integration Snapshots | Apps in Education | Scoop.it

"Marianna Husain (@mhusain), fellow iVenger and author of the Bobcat blog, had the idea to create easy to follow handouts for teachers on a weekly basis to support them with the multitude of apps available on the elementary devices (see full list of 150+ apps here http://bit.ly/19WC0j1 ;). As there are 5 elementaries and 9-10 ed techs creating these resources on a rotating basis, I suggested a template to streamline the process and make them appear more uniform."

Apple now offering older iOS device owners 'last compatible version' of apps | Apps in Education | Scoop.it

"Apple has begun offering owners of older iOS devices the "last compatible version" of apps which will run on their device, as noticed by Reddit members. For example, if an iPhone 3G owner tries to download the latest Twitter app, a dialog box will pop up alerting them that the most recent version of the app is not compatible with their device, but they can opt to download the last version that will run."

11 Storyboarding Apps To Organize & Inspire Young Writers

11 Storyboarding Apps To Organize & Inspire Young Writers | Apps in Education | Scoop.it

"

For students who dread writing class, a blank page can look a lot like a ten-foot monolith; an imposing, empty slate towering over their homework list. Visual storytelling is one way to break students out of writer’s block, and storyboarding apps are a pre-packaged strategy you can use to bring images to the narrative. Whether your students are afraid of writing or you’re simply looking for a way to break up a brainstorming session, these 10 storyboarding apps for iOS and Android devices can help inspire–and organize–students of any age.

 

The best part might be the flexibility of these apps. While they can be used for strict storyboarding in the creation of fiction, they can also be used for other tasks, including documenting project-based learning, sharing assignments, or capturing research notes."

Apple have recognised the particular market we represent.
Ralph Springett's curator insight, October 6, 2013 3:51 PM

Good, but for teachers in New Zealand the curriculum and professional development still needs to be connecged to these resources. Teachers can do this, of course, but wouldn't it be nice if there were some resources available which make those connections?

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, October 7, 2013 4:56 AM

But are these apps really any good for education?
