25 Best Education Apps for the iPad - Daily Genius | the world around us!! | Scoop.it
One of the very best learning tools ever made in the history of mankind is sitting on a table, couch, bed, or in your hands right now. If you think your iPad is just a toy, you’re only half-right at best since that is perhaps one of the best computers available right now.

That’s right; it’s a computer just like your desktop or laptop, as well as your mobile phone. You get screen size and portability all in one, and that is exactly what you need in a learning tool.

With its convenience and power all in one package, you should make the most of it as a learning tool right now and download some apps that will help you expand your understanding of the world and become a more complete human being, as well as help others do the same.

Here are 25 of the best educational apps for the iPad available right now

Karen Dietz's curator insight, May 18, 2015 1:20 PM

This post, written by Jeff Swystun, is a great discussion about how storytelling is changing branding and marketing. What I really like is his thorough treatment of the topic that totally makes sense for anyone in marketing.


Swystun lists 3 ways storytelling is changing branding:

  1. It's not about telling
  2. It's organic
  3. Stories don't end


#3 I'm not so keen about. I think a better way to view storytelling in branding is in terms of story cycles instead of stories that never end. The concept of story cycles will give marketers/branders much more control over their work. Why? Because eventually you need to bring closure to your audience or they will just end up frustrated and turned off.


Serial storytelling in branding is fabulous (think of the Folgers commercials where we waited for the next installment of the story). But the storyline did eventually end. The company went on then to create other stories in their ads.


There is way more to this article than just the 3 points above. There is history shared and examples given. Swystun writes an entire section on narratives moving people to action -- and how most storied ads don't. His examples show us a better way.


Lots to learn here and apply to your business. Story on!

The Six Things That Make Stories Go Viral Will Amaze, and Maybe Infuriate, You | the world around us!! | Scoop.it

"When Jonah Berger was a graduate student at Stanford, in the early aughts, he would make a habit of reading page A2 of the Wall Street Journal, which included a list of the five most-read and the five most-shared articles of the day. “I’d go down to the library and surreptitiously cut out that page,” he recalls. “I noticed that what was read and what was shared was often different, and I wondered why that would be.” What was it about a piece of content—an article, a picture, a video—that took it from simply interesting to interesting and shareable? What pushes someone not only to read a story but to pass it on?"

Jody MacPherson's curator insight, March 10, 2014 5:36 PM

I think this sums up social media quite nicely:

"The irony, of course, is that the more data we mine, and the closer we come to determining a precise calculus of sharing, the less likely it will be for what we know to remain true. "


Welcome to reality.

Some of these resources are excellent.  Be selective when using and ensure you explore the site yourself before use.  This would be an excellent resource for use in a rural community where the opportunity for excursions is limited.  An excellent use of technology to bring the real world into the classroom!

Pearta Nolan's curator insight, March 6, 2014 11:38 PM

What an amazing site that offers students the opportunity to see these places regardless of their geographical location. The Scoop-it post offers 20 different websites that have a direct link to the Australian Curriculum (ACARA). This is evident where the ACARA Technologies Curriculum state that Year Five and Year Six students need to describe how design and technologies contribute to meeting the present and future needs (ACARA). A selection of the different online museums and virtual field trips include: NASA, Arctic Tour, Moon Tour and the Smithsonian Museum. These sites would also be seen to help with other Key Learning Areas, especially remote students that do not have access to such organisations.

Online Quizzes for Regional Geography

Online Quizzes for Regional Geography | the world around us!! | Scoop.it

"For Regional Geography, I ask that all my students take an online quizzes before coming to class because it is very difficult to intelligently discuss European issues if you don’t know the countries of Europe, where they are and what other countries are on their borders.  Quizzes and knowing places doesn’t define geography, but if geography were English literature, knowing about places could be described as the alphabet–before you write a sonnet or critique an essay, you better know your ABC’s and basic grammar.  Given that, I like the Lizard Point Geography quizzes, Sheppard Software quizzes and those from Click that ‘Hood; they are simple, straightforward and comprehensive."
