"Last year we presented “New: 10 of the best Apple apps for education in 2012,”  http://ow.ly/lzCD5 ; which highlighted some of the best apps for iPhones and iPods. However, with new upgrades in touch technology, and the emphasis on Common Core State Standards and school reform in general, we’ve come up with a new list of the best Apple- and Android-based education apps for 2013.

 

This year’s list includes some of the most highly rated apps, both by educators and by parents, and features a range that spans from interactive iBooks to current images of the universe, and from free video software to award-winning STEM curricula."

smart phones are very popular these years, people use is in studying and working, the appropriate app helps people work and study effectively, it also provide such a good channel of communication with friends and colleagues. As a kind of social media, smart phones provides a good channel for the promotion of many brands and products.

This article allows any teacher to see what tips and ideas they can use with smartphones within their classroom. This is leaning more towards middle school and high school, due to the students in elementary not having phones.

This is awesome.  So much theory of teaching collides with the practice.  This could be a great way for teachers in the trenches share their experience and get genuine change in education happening.

Denise Weinhoeft-Renfro's comment, July 5, 2013 3:17 PM
This is truly a great tool in my estimation, but theory and reality also collide with technology. If you are not 1:1 then the potential of the app is not getting used in the best way that it can.
Peter Pappas's comment, July 5, 2013 3:22 PM

Shoot, Edit, and Share Videos With the Loopster iPad App | Technology and Writing in the Middle School Classroom | Scoop.it

"Loopster is a video editing tool that I first tried as a web app last fall. Recently, I learned that Loopster has a free iPad app. The free iPad app offers all of the same features that are available in the web version of the service. The Loopster iPad app provides a four track editor. There are tracks for video and images, transitions, sounds, and text. You can import images and videos from your iPad’s camera roll or shoot a new video with the app and edit it. On the video editing track you can trim clips and combine clips. On the text track you can add speech bubbles and other text effects. Loopster has a slow motion effect that is available on the iPad app too."

This site will lead you to excellent explanations of Evernote and its functionality. It can be particularly useful  for teachers and their students !--Lou
