A Powerful App For Every Level Of Bloom's Taxonomy - Edudemic

A Powerful App For Every Level Of Bloom's Taxonomy - Edudemic | Digital 220 | Scoop.it

"There are a ton of apps out there that address different ideas in the Bloom’s Taxonomy hierarchy. There are a multitude of resources out there that list tons of apps that are relevant. Some may be useful to you, some not, but either way, that’s a lot of information to sort through. So we pulled together a list of six apps – one for each level of understanding in the Bloom’s scheme. There are obviously innumerable combinations that you can shuffle together to make a grouping that works great for you – this is just one (six!) option(s)."

The goal of the challenge was to create resources to help educators discover new possibilities for teaching and learning with an iPad to better meet our teaching and learning needs.

TouchCast - Creating interactive video on the iPad

TouchCast - Creating interactive video on the iPad | Digital 220 | Scoop.it

TouchCast is an iPad app that I downloaded recently and have been exploring a bit over the last couple of weeks. It's not often an app come along which really shakes up and existing genre like video, but I think TouchCast does and in a way that can be very beneficial for learners.
