A Must Have App Evaluation Rubric for Teachers

A Must Have App Evaluation Rubric for Teachers | Transliteracy & eLearning | Scoop.it

The choice of which apps to use with your students in the classroom is not an easy one. It ,in fact , calls for a lot of attention from the part of the teacher. You are responsible for your students learning and this responsibility grows riskier when learning becomes digitally based.This is particularly the case when integrating apps into your teaching.

"[Wonderbox] includes 120 creative challenges, from inventing a plant or designing a superhero to making seashells talk, taking shadow photos or creating a weather report, using templates and digital tools created by the developer."


Love the diversity of options for kids to build on a story and/or move through different kinds of storytelling.

And how might a 1-to-1 mobile learning project contribute to such improvement?

4 Top Educational Tools for Visual Learners - AVATAR GENERATION | Transliteracy & eLearning | Scoop.it
With the assistance of mobile technology, visual learners are given more opportunity to make the learning experience easier, more interactive, and fun. These people are able to comprehend words into pictures in their head and vice versa, according to a study by Penn Psychology. They are able to learn faster with the help of visual content, either as a photo or a video. This is not at all surprising as a recent study by the American researchers revealed that a human brain is able to process images in 13 milliseconds.

Today, there are applications that are able to help simplify the learning process while on-the-go for visual learners. Here are the top educational tools you must try:

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post | Transliteracy & eLearning | Scoop.it

This term I have been working with upper Key Stage 2 pupils to develop interactive adventure style games in Book Creator. One of the features of the app is it allows you to link objects such as images and text to other pages within the book. For images, tap on the image to select it, then tap on the Info icon and use the hyperlink box to type in the page number. For text, highlight the text withIn the text box and you will see a hyperlink option.

This has enabled us to create games where choices, questions and decisions are asked of the user/player throughout. We have then used this as a stimulus for writing, not only creatively but also instruction and advertising. Above are a few screen shots of an example book I made but I didn't want to show the pupils too much as I wanted them to come up with their own ideas.
