"Creative Commons is a non-profit that helps sharing and reuse of creativity and knowledge via free legal and technological tools . These tools are not alternatives to copyright laws, rather they work alongside them.

To help you better teach your students about Creative Commons and how it works, here is a handy graphic that visually captures the main important things students need to know about Creative commons. Enjoy"

Why digital natives prefer reading in print. Yes, you read that right. - Washington Post | Transliteracy & eLearning | Scoop.it
Although American University student Cooper Nordquist, 21, uses his laptop most of the day, he still likes to read from the printed word for enjoyment. Despite that fact that most college students do a majority of their socializing and school work electronically, many still like to read from actual hard copy printed books. (Michael S. Williamson/The Washington Post)

4 Top Educational Tools for Visual Learners - AVATAR GENERATION

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:

Apple TV Settings for the Classroom

Apple TV Settings for the Classroom | Transliteracy & eLearning | Scoop.it
You don’t have to live with Apple TV’s default settings! I’d like to
recommend some tweaks to make Apple TV more classroom friendly. These
adjustments include hiding previews and icons on the Home screen,
preventing screen hijacking, using the screen saver as a digital bulletin
board, and other handy tips.

Via Sam Gliksman

Great tips, love using apple TV with iPads in the classroom, very easy to share/evaluate/collaborate for students.

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.

Every child should learn to program, but not necessarily how to code - theguardian.com | Transliteracy & eLearning | Scoop.it
I am a proud geek and father of three young children. I taught myself to code Basic at the age of 12 on my father’s Commodore 64, and I actively encourage my children to be enthused by the notion of building with digital tools. But I don’t necessarily agree with the notion that every child must learn how to code.

Use “Send Last Location” to Find a Lost iPhone Even If Battery is Dead - OSXDaily | Transliteracy & eLearning | Scoop.it

"One of the best things about Find My iPhone is the ability to, well, find your iPhone if you happen to misplace it. It’s a feature that every iOS device owner (and Mac users too) should have enabled on their devices, but up until now there has been a problem; when a devices battery runs out, so goes the ability to track the lost iPhone. That’s exactly what this setting in iOS 8 aims to resolve, and much like Find My iPhone, every iOS device owner should take a moment to enable this."
