Here's a list of essential apps that I mostly agree with, and includes a bunch of useful utility apps that will link the iPad to desktops, printers and servers.

30 must have apps for teachers

Laura's curator insight, December 3, 2013 11:15 AM

Of course, we would add the One Minute Reader app too!

The 10-Minute Guide To Bloom's Taxonomy - Edudemic

The 10-Minute Guide To Bloom's Taxonomy - Edudemic | techniques for students with special needs | Scoop.it

Bloom’s Taxonomy is one of the most cited theoretical constructions within education and e-learning. This is well earned since, after its first publication in 1956, the taxonomy has quickly become an important milestone within educational theory.

However there are many professionals within the educational and e-learning fields that have only a vague idea of what the Taxonomy is all about, or that have only met the taxonomy (or some revisited version of these findings) for the Cognitive domain only, leaving the Affective and Psychomotor domains at the margins, if not completely out of the picture.

The robotic soundtrack is a little irritating, but this is a well-constructed and relatively deep introduction to the taxonomy, including the underlying psychology that drives it.

Great overview -- but it would be so much better if narrated by a human :-)

 

Allan Shaw's curator insight, July 31, 2013 10:57 PM

Great to see the affective and psychomotor getting greater credence and visibility.

This is one of the most comprehensive apps I have ever used for students/ individuals with autism or any individual needing AAC or  life skills features that are built right into the app! Visual schedules and timers, customizable interactive scenes that are literally the rooms/ places that the student/ individual will be in daily, video modeling and sequencing, and communication; it's absolutely phenomenal! The Lite version is FREE and starts with an excellent step by step tutorial and allows you to experience much of what the app has to offer before deciding to purchase the full version. Well worth the price for students/ individuals who will benefit as it replaces so many other apps and having to use multiple apps.

I'm going to look into this. I need a customizable app for higher level students.

The vision of learning presented in this infographic is so exciting. Even better, it will be my students who build this new learning structure.
