50 Resources For Teaching With iPads - Te@chThought

50 Resources For Teaching With iPads - Te@chThought | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it
So we thought we’d start an ongoing collection–that is, one that is updated to reflect trends and changes–of the best resources for teaching with the iPad.

This will include resources from all of the best sources, from Apple’s own stuff to TeachThought to edutopia to MindShift to DMLCentral to Jackie Gerstein and more. We can update it, or make it a wiki to crowdsource the process, or you can add suggestions in the comments below. Based on the activity of the comments, and the sharing of the post, we’ll decide how to handle it moving forward.

Lots of good articles!

Brian Romero Smith's curator insight, October 15, 2014 2:27 PM

Great resource for a 1:1 iPad classroom/school. However, this is a great model for any 1:1 setup. You truly need to consider the Teacher/Student/Parent paradigm when deciding on applications that enhance the learning environment. Where there is not workflow vision the people will perish.

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

Technology is way too often given a bad rap by administrators and educators as a distraction or a hazard for students.  When technology is integrated intentionally with foresight and with intention of addressing specific growth-oriented goals, it increases the potential to help students learn, develop, and grow in unique ways.  It can be used to help address the needs as described by Maslow.

gosto da premissa que tecnologia não endereça/resolve necessidades emocionais, básicas na pirâmide aqui ilustrada.


A hierarquia tecnológica de segurança, sociabilização, cognição, estética, etc é um excelente passo a passo para utilização da tecnologia como ferramenta de aprendizagem.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 2, 7:19 PM

This is a project which is ongoing. Maslow, like others i.e. Ellul, had reservations about computers, but his work is important in their uses.

iPad in PE, an obvious decision - matpullen.com

iPad in PE, an obvious decision - matpullen.com | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

"Having taught PE using iPad since it first came out in 2010 I have seen it grow rapidly as a tool to support teaching and learning.

 

Having purchased one for personal use I could straight away see the opportunities it lent for me as a teacher with no fixed classroom.  All of a sudden I had access to information wherever I was round the school.  iPad 1 had its limitations though, namely the lack of a camera, but even without this it allowed me to make notes on learning, share videos with students about model technique and numerous other things to support my teaching, even simply planning and evaluating lessons on the go.

 

Then came iPad 2 and the camera.  This changed everything and I knew straight away that this was the way forward for the whole of the department."

Dragon Dictation: A Must-Have App for Writers - Brilliant or Insane - @AngelaStockman | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it
I began using Dragon Dictation a few years ago when my work with a group of struggling writers left me searching for a tool that could help them get the great ideas they were sharing aloud onto a page. I wanted something elegant: a tool that wouldn’t interrupt students as they were speaking but rather, quietly capture what they were saying and flip it into text.

15 amazing features in Google Apps you probably don't know about - Business Insider | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it
Google has big plans for its Microsoft Office killer, Google Apps. It hopes to nab 80% of Office users away from Microsoft.

To do that, Google isn't just matching some of Microsoft's Office's best features, it is adding a bunch of cool features of its own. Some of them can be pretty hard to find. So we asked Google to send us a list of some the best little-known features in Google Apps (plus we threw in a few of our own)
