Teacher's Visual Library of 40+ iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Teacher's Visual Library of 40+ iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
"I love it when I come across such educators curated lists of apps because I know since these apps are reviewed by fellow teachers then there is a high possibility that they will work for other teachers in different settings too. For instance, the wonderful work embedded below and which has been created by the folks in St.Plunkett Oliver Primary School http://www.stoliverplunkett.qld.edu.au/Pages/default.aspx ; is a great library of apps that every teacher should have the chance to explore. It contains a set of useful apps pertaining to different categories. Most, if not all of these apps, have been already reviewed here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning before but it is much more practical to see them compiled and organized all in one page."

We didn't my scoop.it read as a re-scoop? For some reason, it did not give you credit. I'll rebroadcast with a credit to you.

Don't worry about it, as long as we share it with others, it doesn't really matter :)

Tinkering and Thinking with Maker Kylie Peppler | DMLcentral | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
Some enthusiasts of digital media in learning and inclusion of making/tinkering as a learning activity — including myself — believe that talking about tinkering while doing it, in person and online, can enhance social contexts for peer learning and for learning thinking skills.

Using new technology in special education...

Heejoon Ahn's curator insight, December 17, 9:40 PM

The usage of technology such as the iPad is used to help students communicate with their educators, practice their writing, or to even practice their control over their muscles and hand-coordination. Many students with special needs sometimes take a long time to finish a simple task such as pressing a button on the screen, and the iPad is another technology which can make the task enjoyable.

 

Time Taken: 3 years and 4 months (from volunteer experience)

Definitely worth the look. 30 years in, I go back to the opaque projector and the purple inked mimeograph with hand crank.

Amazing what we did with so  much less back then. I don't seem to have enough time today and I feel like I don't get enough done.
