Nine of the best science apps for the iPad/iPhone | Earth Science | Scoop.it
The iPad is ushering a revolution in the world of education. Now, not only can you read about information, you can interact with it as well, even if you’re nowhere near lab or can’t perform hands-on experiments. It also allows you to gain access to a museum’s exhibits without ever having to leave your desk (or bed, or bench, but possibly not your bath). We’ve collected nine of the best science-based education apps out there, from old classics to brand new additions. Together, they will show you what you can achieve with today’s technology and perhaps open your mind to what will be possible in the future.

Hide Settings on the iPad to Lock Users Out - The iTeach

Hide Settings on the iPad to Lock Users Out - The iTeach | Earth Science | Scoop.it
"Each time a new iOS version is released, users prepare for problems associated with bugs, but also look for novel ways to exploit the new functionality to their advantage. At The iTeach Hub we have developed a practical means to effectively prevent users from manipulating Settings in iOS7. It is essentially a means to lock Settings and we want to share it with you. This relatively simple process is outlined below. Technically, it is not a Settings lock, but our trials with this approach involving students have proven to be very effective at keeping them out of Settings."
