I hope that flashcards are not all our students use the ipad/iphone for, but if these apps help them learn, really learn the facts they need to know, then here are a few apps to try. 

Terry Doherty's curator insight, April 1, 2013 6:33 AM

Mixed feelings on this one ... nice to be "green," but are we trading tactile experience for more screen time?

Holland Bass's comment, May 7, 2013 12:55 AM
I like the idea of using an iPad for flashcards, but overall I don't think it is a good idea. Looking too long at a screen can harm your eyes, so the old notecards are still favourable for me.

3 Easy Ways To Engage Students With Technology | Technology in ed | Scoop.it

"In today’s culture, students often come to the classroom with an attention span of a goldfish. They need new things to entertain them almost instantaneously. So how do you get a student’s attention for more than 5 minutes? You give them something entertaining to look at, something that they’re used to. With all the new technology that comes out, there is always something to look at or play with, so why not engage students with this new technology? There are a countless ways to get started–below are 3."

Thanks for this.

Keeping students actively engaged in the learning process and making instruction relevant are key elements of effective lessons. Is this really anything new???

'LessonCasts': Flipped PD for Teachers

'LessonCasts': Flipped PD for Teachers | Technology in ed | Scoop.it

"Here's a teacher professional development idea that I hadn't heard of before. And it comes in three-minute chunks called LessonCasts. In a session on Saturday, Nicole Tucker-Smith, a former assistant principal in Baltimore County, described how she'd set out to solve one of the most challenging issues related to teacher PD: How do you provide PD that's neither overwhelming for new teachers nor repetitive for seasoned teachers? Is there a format that can be truly valuable for everyone?"

Great Tutorial on How to Create your Own eBook on iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Great Tutorial on How to Create your Own eBook on iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology in ed | Scoop.it

"Creating an eBook online is no rocket science and anyone with the rudimentary knowledge of how to use internet can get his/her eBook up and viral in a couple of minutes provided the content part of it is already written in a word document. I find the typing and editing part the most  difficult stage in this process;  however, if you just want to set up a short ebook for your students then that would not take you much time.


Just a couple of weeks ago I shared here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning a list of great apps  to use to create eBooks on iPad and I received several emails following that post and some of you asked for tutorials on this topic. Here is one of my favorite tutorials on how to create an eBook on iPad that I always recommend to my fellow teachers. Check it out below and share with us what you think of it. Enjoy"
