36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | Visual Literacy | Scoop.it

"The interest in inquiry-based learning seems to ebb and flow based on–well, it’s not clear why it ever ebbs.

 

In short, it is a student-centered, Constructivist approach to learning that requires critical thinking, and benefits from technology, collaboration, resourcefulness, and other modern learning skills that never seem to fall out of favor themselves.

 

Regardless, St Oliver Plunkett Primary School has put together two very useful images that can help you populate your iPad–or classroom of iPads–with apps that support both inquiry-based learning (the second image below), and a more general approach to pedagogy based on Apple’s uber-popular tablet (the top image)."

Mick Huiet's insight:

This is a very logical organization of apps.  It would be interesting to compares other schools or districts app usage in this manner.

Imagery in Social Media & How to Leverage Visual Content [infographic]

Imagery in Social Media  & How to Leverage Visual Content [infographic] | Visual Literacy | Scoop.it

While the origins of social media can be traced back to the late 1970s, the medium didn’t really begin to develop until 1993, with the world wide web.

From here, we never looked back. But even as far as 2006 social media was predominately a text-based pursuit. So what’s changed since?

 

The global domination of YouTube, the rise of Pinterest and the success of Instagram has made social media an increasingly visual platform. And with good reason: users are far more likely to engage with brands who post images and video, and, subsequently, both Facebook and Twitter have taken steps to better-incorporate this content into their channels over the past twelve months.

 

This infographic takes a closer look at how the shift to a visual social world has developed, and includes six tips for brands on how to use these tools to bolster their marketing strategy.

I Scooped this from "iTeach with Technology" blog. Karen Ogen is the author there, but she got it from David Kapuler's blog, "Technology Tidbits."  CreatorVerse looks like a niche which hadn't been filled. Physics and Art! Linden Labs develops games, but has stepped out with more collaborative "gaming."
