Universal Skills All Learners Should Know How to Do - User Generated Education

Universal Skills All Learners Should Know How to Do - User Generated Education | Technology | Scoop.it
This morning I was thinking about the things that all young people should know how to do regardless of income, geographical location, life goals, etc.  I started a list – see below.  Some have “always” been true – some are unique to this century of learning.  Let me know of any other universal skills you believe young people should know how to do.

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post | Technology | Scoop.it

This term I have been working with upper Key Stage 2 pupils to develop interactive adventure style games in Book Creator. One of the features of the app is it allows you to link objects such as images and text to other pages within the book. For images, tap on the image to select it, then tap on the Info icon and use the hyperlink box to type in the page number. For text, highlight the text withIn the text box and you will see a hyperlink option.

This has enabled us to create games where choices, questions and decisions are asked of the user/player throughout. We have then used this as a stimulus for writing, not only creatively but also instruction and advertising. Above are a few screen shots of an example book I made but I didn't want to show the pupils too much as I wanted them to come up with their own ideas.

An Effective Visual Vocabulary iPad Lesson, done in Minutes - Teaching with iPad

An Effective Visual Vocabulary iPad Lesson, done in Minutes - Teaching with iPad | Technology | Scoop.it
Here is a quick tool that I use with my iPad this week that was very effective for my younger grades.

We know that most kids learn better visually. With my vocabulary many lists within my curriculum, I was able to quickly search for images using Google images. I quickly went through each list, and found anything that I thought could have an image. Using Google search, all I did was type the words: “clipart” plus whatever image I was looking for (e.g. “clipart car”, “clipart pizza”). I went down the list and quickly came out with a gallery of probably 30 vocabulary words within ten minutes.

"So congrats you've got your new iPad and can't wait to start using it. I know excitement and curiosity to discover newly bought things particularly electronic gadgets makes us want to learn everything about them quickly. Unfortunately it does take a little time and practice ( usability) to get yourself pretty familiar with your iPad. My advice is to start with some " how to " video tutorials " available on YouTube and get yourself acquainted with the different specs in your iPad. Now comes the second task which is that of searching for and selecting the apps to install. I compiled the list below featuring some of the fundamental apps you should start with."
