6 Creative Ways to Use the new Jumble Feature on Kahoot Teaching with iPad  | APPS | Scoop.it
Many of you are already playing Kahoot, a wildly popular assessment game using any device plus a projector in your classroom. I wrote this post two (!) years ago about how all students would love Kahoot. There are now over 13.9 MILLION public Kahoots created! Very recently, the makers of Kahoot have recently come up with another game within Kahoot called Jumble.

Perhaps its just me getting older, but I think the issue of ownership and royalties of online content, is bigger now than it was a few years ago. Most of us need to know more about it than we do and act accordingly. This looks like a great resourse to royalty free pics and films that will make it easier to stay on the right side of the law.

"I enjoy discussing iPad and other edtech resources with my colleague and friend Sylvia Duckworth almost every week through Twitter.

I asked her if she wanted to collaborate on this post, and she quickly agreed to do so. Below is a list of iPad apps that we both use in our language classrooms. The ones marked with an * are the essential, must-have ones. We have divided the list into two categories: Content consumption apps and content creation apps."

Camilo Toro Arias's curator insight, April 24, 2017 3:48 PM
The power of technology can not only be used inside the classroom, but also outside of it in order to achieve a fruitful communication between the parts (teachers-students). The tools named in this article are great options for those teachers who want to be in touch with their students all the time... Send materials or information about next classes and so on, since they are specifically designed for that. Yeah! Teachers can communicate their ideas and thoughts in the target language, and students will make an effort to use that language as well. Like that, the communicative practice will not be reduced to the two or three class hours inside the institution.
