How to Use iTunes U in the Classroom - Daily Genius

How to Use iTunes U in the Classroom - Daily Genius | things to save | Scoop.it
When I first heard about iTunes U, I was unsure of how it all worked or how it would fit into my classroom. Today, I cannot imagine teaching without it. iTunes U is a free app that allows teachers to put all course materials, iBooks, apps, and links to submit work in one place for students to access. So instead of a website for my class, students subscribe to my iTunes U course. Once subscribed from their iPads, students have access to all course material, receive notifications when I update content, and check off assignments as they complete them.

Amazing and creative way to bring digital tools into the classroom. Students are allowed to grab their digital camera at anytime to record what they are doing in class. This not only supports review, but it allows the kids to express themselves which is very important.

A Few Activities for World Book Day using iPad

A Few Activities for World Book Day using iPad | things to save | Scoop.it

As World Book Day 2015 fast approaches, here are a few activities to try.

 

Firstly you can use an app such as Croak It https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/croak.it!/id525958948?mt=8 so pupils can record a 30 second book review into the iPad. This creates a web link (you can make these private) which could be added into a QR Code generator https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/qr-code-maker/id513617634?mt=8 . Print off the QR Codes so pupils can add them to the book covers. This make a nice ongoing activity for pupils to add audio reviews to school library books.

 

The second activity involves Do Ink Green Screen app https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/green-screen-by-do-ink/id730091131?mt=8&uo=4&at=11lIT4 . Students can take a photo of themselves against a green or blue background (green screen or backing paper) and using the app, add themselves into an image of a book front cover by combining the two images together in Do Ink.

Have fun!

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal | things to save | Scoop.it
A higher-order thinker is a critical thinker. What are the attributes of a critical thinker? In The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking Concepts and Tools, Richard Paul and Linda Elder describe a well-cultivated critical thinker as someone who:
raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively; comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; andcommunicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems.

Kathy Schrock has been looking ahead with technology and a librarian's instinct for organization for years. She's still hitting it out of the park.
