Robin Good: Rachel Smith explains in very simple words how you can use your iPad to capture and record visually the key ideas and concepts presented during a lecture, keynote, training class or presentation.
She provides a good round-up of four relevant tools that can be used for this task, analyzing their key pros and cons as well as providing logistic and technical advice on how to best organize and setup yourself for doing visual recording on the iPad.
As similar tools will provide more ready-made icons, templates and patterns available for this kind of real-time idea-capturing, this rare and pioneering visual recording work will begin to catch up even more rapidly.
Very interesting and true. When I learned to drive in the city that I was born and raised in, you would have thought that I had never been there. I would always get lost, but my neighborhood, I knew that place like the back of my hand simply from riding my bike and walking everywhere as a kid.
"Blooms Taxonomy is one of our topical themes in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. Over the last couple of years, we have been posting dozens of articles on how teachers can can apply the HOTS ( Higher Order Thinking Skills ) in their teaching. You can check the resources below to learn more.
In this post we worked on some iPad apps that go along with each of the skills mentioned in Blooms Taxonomy. We have based our work on the popular Poster Langwiches made before but because she missed hyperlinking the apps we tried to avoid this mistake in the table below. Just click on any app and you will be automatically directed to its homepage where you can download it." from source: http://www.educatorstechnology.com
Any company, organization, or individual hoping to take advantage of digital video to educate or entertain the populace or promote a product should have a video strategy in place before springing for the time and equipment involved. Educators, of course, are not exempt from the core tenets of solidifying a viable video strategy — especially when it comes to how exactly they plan to take advantage of everything the medium offers.
A recent study conducted by the U.S. Department of Education found that students involved in blended learning programs generally performed better than students who participated in face-to-face instruction.
Fascinating read. "Soon, kids who have spent the summer playing video games will be in the classroom, leafing through old-style, dog-eared textbooks." “We need to talk as a country about what we want our learners and thinkers to DO,” says Alice...

Below is a list of some excellent books for your iPad. I have curated this list over the last couple of months and I kept adding to it every time I stumble upon a resource somewhere online.I don't know if you like reading books on your iPad or not but let me tell you this: having at least a couple of titles installed on your iPad would really be of great help particularly in those moments when you are stuck somewhere and have nothing to do but waiting. Reading is a habit ( luckily a good one ) that we can ACQUIRE by force of habituation at least in the eyes of Skinnerian theory.The more you read , the fluent you get at reading and the more used your mind becomes to the act of reading.
In 2010, most states in the United States (including Rhode Island) adopted the Common Core State Standards as the new standards. The two main portions of the Common Core Standards are the English...
Will geography be permanently pushed out of the curriculum with the adoption of the Common Core? How can a teacher bolster spatial thinking and geo-literacy within the Common Core framework? If you've asked yourself these questions, this resource is for you.
Laura Wright was been kind enough to publish her issuu e-book on the iPads in the Classroom PLN. Have a look at the PLN site for discussion and iPad resources. Check out her publication on using iPads in the Elementary Classroom on the links below. This is a cool publication. Make sure you check out her other issuu publications.
