How to Pick iPad Apps for your Classroom

How to Pick iPad Apps for your Classroom | Using Apps in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"You’ve heard the chatter. IPads have become the go-to literacy tool for authentic learning in the K-8 classroom, the one that says ‘Our program is cutting edge, up-to-date, inquiry-driven‘. Students want to use them, want to share and collaborate on them, and will follow almost any rules if it means they get that tablet in their hands.

 

The problem with the iPad as with the internet is: TMI–too much information. There are tens of thousands of apps, each proclaiming itself to be the solution to all classroom problems, each promising to be the practical strategy for learning math or science or state capitals or whatever their buzz word happens to be."

PowerPoint 2013: Widescreen Presentations

PowerPoint 2013: Widescreen Presentations | Using Apps in the Classroom | Scoop.it

Widescreen, also known as 16:9, HDTV, 720p, 1080p, 13.333”x7.5”, among other names, is the new default aspect ratio in the new PowerPoint. To make your experience with the new dimensions pleasant, we’ve built a brand new set of themes specifically targeting this aspect ratio, and we’ve improved our conversion code so that you can easily make the switch to widescreen from other aspect ratios.

There is no doubt that widescreen presentations are more impressive than the standard size ones.

The article gives evidence for it and explains how you can go from standard to widescreen size in PowerPoint 2013. It also gives tips how you can print handouts of widescreen presentations.

Top Five iPad Apps for Teaching Across All Content Areas

Top Five iPad Apps for Teaching Across All Content Areas | Using Apps in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"Ever since I was a kid, I loathed back to school commercials. They always showed parents gleefully skipping through aisles of pencils and notebooks as the kids, sullen and dejected, sluggishly followed along. It's a scene we are all too familiar with, and one that creates a negative stigma around school. But what if that scene were flipped? What if the kids were happy and eager to get to school? Is that possible after roughly 90 days of sun and fun? It is, and at Burlington Public Schools, we have seen it over the past two years during our iPad launches at the high school and middle school."
