How Evernote Is Revolutionzing My Classroom - Edudemic

How Evernote Is Revolutionzing My Classroom - Edudemic | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
The great Evernote experiment is underway in the UK. Adam Webster details how he went all-digital with the help of iPads and Evernote.

 

By Adam Webster

 

"From 8th January – 22nd March I chose one class, my First Year class (aged 11-12) to give up using exercise books, reading books and textbooks. Instead, they would use only digital mediums that were available to them through an iPad that they were supplied with during each lesson.

 

"We are now at the halfway point of this test, and I wanted to reflect a little on what I have found so far."

How to create an Apple VPP account and distribute apps | TechRepublic

How to create an Apple VPP account and distribute apps | TechRepublic | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
Erik Eckel explains how to take advantage of the Apple Volume Purchase Program to distribute and manage iOS apps for your organization.

 

Application distribution

Redemption URLs are also provided within the VPP console, thereby providing a simple link that can be emailed directly to users to simplify application installation. Redemption codes can also be published directly to Intranets or via an internal application portal. Alternatively, organizations may choose to leverage a third-party Mobile Device Management (MDM) platform, such as Fiberlink’s MaaS 360 or Mobile Iron, to deploy and administer applications throughout the organization.

 

The Apple Configurator, a free Apple app download, is another tool organizations can tap to assist mass software deployments. Using the free utility, administrators can import redemption code spreadsheets generated by the VPP console, track installed applications, configure and deploy devices, and update apps as required across supervised devices.

:"Read.it! is Scoop.It for the iPad, but not like the iPhone version. Huh?

The Scoop.it service allows you to pull together news feeds of content that is popular around the social network world. The system makes it easy to share out what you find to other people that might find the same interesting. The Web site and the iPhone app do this. But, the new Read.it! iPad Free app is positioned more towards building category groups of news so that you can get to what you find interesting, quickly!"

Apple TV In The Classroom: 4 Reasons To Try It Out - Edudemic

Apple TV In The Classroom: 4 Reasons To Try It Out - Edudemic | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

"f you like to use your iPhone, iPad or laptop in your classroom because it allows you to effortlessly navigate the learning space, one of the greatest frustrations can be having to constrain yourself to the vicinity of the projector cable every time you want to share your screen with the class.

 

 

I have seen this as a common practice even in open plan learning environments, which instantly does away with it’s greatest feature by forcing the teacher to move back to the front of the room.

 

 

Whilst you can get wireless projectors at great expense, have you ever thought of using Apple’s $99 Apple TV? I hadn’t until recently, but since using it I could never go back to a physical projector/tv connection for the following 4 reasons:
