Shadow Puppet: Digital Storytelling for iOS Devices

Shadow Puppet: Digital Storytelling for iOS Devices | Scriveners' Trappings | Scoop.it

review by Michael Karlin...rated Outstanding


And that's the app!  Yes, it's incredibly simple, but I think that's perfect for this application because it can be used at all ages without much difficulty.  It takes less than 30 seconds to figure out how the application works and it can be integrated in a huge variety of subjects.  

Students can narrate their understanding of virtually any topic and then share those narrations with the class or the teacher.  It's an excellent, easy way to get students talking and sharing what they understand about a particular idea.


My only suggestion would be for them to include a drawing tool (sort of like VoiceThread offers) so that students could add lines or shapes to the images as well.  

Other than that, I love the simplicity, I think it's an excellent app for the classroom, it could be used in all subjects and grade levels, and to top it all off, it's completely free!

15 iPad Skills Every Teacher and Student should Have - Apps linked to your learning goals

15 iPad Skills Every Teacher and Student should Have - Apps linked to your learning goals | Scriveners' Trappings | Scoop.it

By Med Kharbach

 

"iPad has made such a radical change in education with more and more school districts  adopting it as a learning tool inside the classroom. Educational Technology and Mobile Learning  has been helping teachers all along the way with reviews and tutorials on how to get started using iPad in education. We have reviewed more than 500 apps and we are planning to do more reviews this year.

"Having accumulated a modest experience in dealing with educational iPad apps, we deem it important that we share with you some of the learning goals you should keep in mind when using iPad with your students. We have particularly associated sets of educational iPad apps with each learning goal to make it easier for you to achieve the targeted goal.

"Check the learning goals below and share with us your feedback. Enjoy"

Great resource, clearly laid out. Does anyone have something similar for Android devices?

Becky Vickers's curator insight, March 11, 11:15 AM

FOR CLASSROOM CLIMATE PLAN: Technology is definitely something I find important for a 21st century classroom climate. Many PBL Projects involve technology and this image provides suggested apps that can allow teachers to cultivate virtual spaces for their classroom. I especially think the National Geographic and TED apps could be particularly useful because they provide a wealth of resources for classroom projects. I would like to make the use of technology routine in my classroom and expand our spaces to include both the physical and virtual spaces available to students.

There are hundreds of apps here: the list is a bit Americanised but very useful. The apps are sorted into categories and rough year levels.
