Daniel Thurmond's curator insight, April 13, 2014 1:45 PM

The phone has been a source of controversy in schools. However with the growing number of students with access to not only home computers but mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets it is clear that these devices can be used. Use of these to have group discussions about homework or the ability of the teacher to openly answer student questions on a discussion board are clear applications of this technology.  These tools can be used at all levels of the TIM but most notably the adaption level. Students could be encouraged to collaborate together in order to answer each others questions about how to solve math problems.

Why your iOS device may be a better cable box than the Apple TV | GigaOM Tech News | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
When choosing which cable provider to sign a contract with, you will undoubtably check the channel guide to see which channels are included in the package to which you are about to subscribe. You may even go a bit further and check to see if includes the HD version of your favorite channels. What you likely will not do is check to see how many channels have allowed the cable provider to access their shows from within an app on the App Store.Despite having a growing number of channels to choose from — 189 channels on average — Nielsen data shows that most homes view just 17 different channels. Using a list of broadcast networks, the 20 most watched cable networks of 2013, and some of the top premium channels, you will find that each and every one of the top 20 networks has an iOS app in the app store. The problem is that many of them may be of no use to you as some of your favorite channels’ content will not be accessible to you at all.Local television stations, or affiliate stations, usually have apps that are free to use and do not require any sort of subscription to a major cable provider. The easiest way to find these apps is by searching in the App Store using your local stations call letters. With a style that is more like that of a local newspaper, these apps typically offer up local news, sports and weather forecasts. Some have started to simulcast live broadcasts at the times when they air their own produced shows locally.Click headline to read more--
