Apps in Education: Cool Maths apps for kids

Apps in Education: Cool Maths apps for kids | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Maths Apps are the ones most frequently searched for on this site. I sometimes think that if I had some of these apps I would have taken a greater interest in Maths as a kid. It was not that I was disinterested I just missed some of the basics. With some of these game based apps at least students can be engaged long enough to discovery some of the basic maths concepts.

Felix Jacomino's insight:

Thanks Greg!

Mobile iEducator | reviewing the best apps for education | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

These are my favorite apps for demonstration projects and presentations. Click on the icon or the link to connect to the iTunes Store. HINT: I use many of these apps with screenshots taken from what we are studying. To take a screenshot on an Apple device, hit the home button and the on/off button at the same time and the device will automatically capture whatever is showing on your app’s screen. Need a photo of Abe Lincoln? Google it, zoom and frame it so it fits the entire screen, then take your screenshot. You can now import it as a photo into most of the apps below.

Joe's intro paragraphs tell a story that captured my thoughts. How long will this educational change take? How long does it need to take? What can I do about it.

 

Joe writes "Change is fuelled by constructive conflict brought on by cognitive dissonance inspired by engaged conversations but is stifled by needless combativeness which breeds disengagement and defensiveness."
