At first I wasn't so sure about the layout and colors, but I've gotten quiet used to it already. I do like the accordion feature when on Safari.

David Cook's curator insight, August 7, 2014 10:34 PM

I found this to be a lot of bark with no bite.  But that's may be because I'm already sold on the need for digital literacy in education, and am much more interested in reading about specific content, frameworks, curriculum, etc.

10 Best Internet Browsers for iPad | Mozbot - UK Technology Blog

10 Best Internet Browsers for iPad | Mozbot - UK Technology Blog | Technology Lessons | Scoop.it

"Internet browsing is the strongest forte of iPad because of features like portability, connectivity, functionality and easy access it provides on the go. While iPad’s default Browser Safari does more than justice to internet browsing experience on iPad, it does not fully take advantage of the in-built iPad capability and power. This is where all the other iPad Internet Browser alternatives make their entry into the scene, particularly by exploiting the full potential of iPad’s offerings and sometimes even providing high end touch gesture integration for internet browsing alacrity."

John Pearce's curator insight, September 3, 2013 9:20 PM

One of the bigest drawback in using a non-jail broken iPad is that of the restriction imposed by the inability to redefine the default apps and in particular having Safari. Whilst it has improved steadily and is capable of being massaged using javascript, it would be much nicer if we could make use of the complete range of capabilities to seamlessly move between apps in ways that this article identifies. I like my Chrome browser for some tasks, (and at least from Hotsuite I can choose between Chrome and Safari to open links), but iCabMobile is my choice when I need to distribute content between my other services including Diigo, Evernote etc. This list suggests there is even more capability out there if we want to seek it out.

The 6 types of Questions your Students Need to Know about ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The 6 types of Questions your Students Need to Know about ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology Lessons | Scoop.it

Learning is all about asking questions and finding answers to them. An inquisitive mind is one that goes beyond the status quo and probes deep below surface meanings. To foster such kind of  thinking inside our classroom requires some hard work and a serious investment in time and efforts. We, as teachers and educators, need to prepare the right environment where inquisitive minds can nourish and grow. We need to water this environment with a culture of asking questions.

I like some of these ideas. I'm thinking we could have students make podcast booktalks and have QR codes linking to them in the books or on a display or around the school. Hmm...kids can't use their phones at school, yet. Well, I can always put links to them in our catalog and on the website.
