Wordament

Wordament® is a unique and highly addictive word game: a two-minute long word tournament where you compete in real-time, on the same board, against everyone else currently playing. Each board is unique and alternating rounds offer challenges such as two- and three-letter digram tiles and theme* puzzles. You can choose to go for the bonus points, try to find the most words possible or earn scoring bonuses by finding longer words.

 

Nik Peachey's insight:

This looks like a great way to get students practicing spelling and vocabulary.

infuselearning | Empowering The BYOD REVOLUTION | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

Join the paradigm shift in pedagogy through the seamless combination of classroom technology and quality teaching. Make informed decisions at the point of instruction with real-time, student feedback.

Nik Peachey's insight:

This is an interesting realtime classroom feedback tool which allows students to respond to classroom input on a range of devices using a range of different formats, from simple true false responses to summaries, image response etc. All responses are then pushed back to the teacher's interface. Interesting tool if you are working with a classroom full of students with mixed mobile devices.

Assistive Technology and the 1:1 Student

Assistive Technology and the 1:1 Student | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it
Meaghan recalls her first moments with the iPad and how she and her liaison discovered the variety of new opportunities that this one device presented. One of the first things she used was the ability to invert the colors of the screen. The iPad gives users the opportunity to read predominantly black text on a lighter screen, or to invert the colors and overlay white text on a black screen. This one feature, Meaghan recalls, was "transformative" in her learning of what the iPad could offer her educational experience.
Nik Peachey's insight:

Interesting article about the use of the iPad with a students suffering from visual impairment.
