By Terry Heick

 

"As a teacher, continuing education is so important that most school districts require that teachers enroll in some form of coursework on a regular basis to keep their knowledge and skills fresh. And while those courses are essential, staying on top of the cutting edge of educational development is important as well.

 

"Through Twitter discussions, teachers can follow the latest in education, whether it’s educational technology or new ways to teach math. These 20 hashtags offer teachers a convenient way to become part of chats and discussions that share the absolute latest in education news, resources, and ideas."

"The new Skitch design embodies the application’s purpose of helping you communicate your ideas quickly and easily. We focused on making things simpler, highlighting exactly the shapes, colors and options you need in order to get things done. It’s this restraint that makes Skitch so easy to use, and so deceptively powerful."

ohdesiderata's curator insight, March 25, 2013 1:20 AM

This is a great resource for exploring art within the classroom, no need to organise an excursion and worry about risk assessments! After studying The Hero of Little Street by Gregory Rogers last week, I have no doubt that this could be used to link the creative arts to literacy and enrich the learning experience of both.

iPad Voice Dictation: Commands List & Tips | iPad Insight | Web Tools for Education | Scoop.it

Voice Dictation, or just Dictation as Apple calls it, is one of my favorite features of iOS on the iPad.

Voice Dictation, or just Dictation as Apple calls it, is one of my favorite features of iOS on the iPad. As I’ve mentioned recently here, I use it more and more and it just keeps getting better. Though Siri may draw more attention, I think dictation is the far more useful feature right now.

If you haven’t tried out dictation on the iPad you really should give it a go. It can be much faster than typing at times. Here are a few little tips and some common commands you can use to get even more out of dictation:

Speak slowly and clearly: I know this sounds obvious, but it’s an easy one to forget. I find that when I speak too quickly or run my words

BalancEdTech - iPad Exploration

A highly useful wiki outline for anyone to learn how to use an iPad in the classroom.  This makes me realize how many learning doors the iPad opens for learners of all stripes.  If you follow their outine then at the end and probably working with a partner you will know navigate as well as download apps.  You will explore ebooks and their creation. And as the infomercials shout, "Much,much more."

 

I like that you have basic stuff and 'extra challenges' very similar to the recent Google Search MOOC.
