5 Great New Digital Storytelling Apps for Kids ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

5 Great New Digital Storytelling Apps for Kids ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"Stories were the first medium through which knowledge was transformed from one generation to the other. We owe a lot to those first storytellers who were abe to orally codify what would later be the base of human knowledge way before the invention of the printing press.

Storytelling still retains its importance as an important element of learning. Students learn best when they are given the chance to compose. read, listen and create. Writing stories and sharing them with others is a great way for students to put their literacy skills in to practice. Below is a selection of  good iPad apps I have meticulously selected for you to try with your students and kids."

Gail M. Roper's curator insight, July 14, 2013 8:26 PM

Kids love story time and so many things have been shared by the long history of story telling.  I have been working on building my family tree using Ancestry.com.  Most of what I have been able to find came from details that I heard from my grands during story telling at reunions, family gatherings, and having big ears when adults were talking low!  Try these and let me know if your kids are engaged.

Technology Tidbits: Thoughts of a Cyber Hero: Top 50 Math Sites and Apps | iPads in Education | Scoop.it
"Throughout the last few years I've compiled quite a few lists of my favorite sites for a variety of subjects. Over the last year and a half one might have noticed that my lists have started to change and instead of focusing on sites I've been focusing more on apps as "mobile learning" has really taken off. It seems now a days a person can find an app for almost anything. Specializing in Ed Tech I review sites/apps all the time and decided to start posting my favorites for different subjects. Below are my favorites for Math."

8 Apps To Turn Your iPad Into A Digital Whiteboard - TeachThought | iPads in Education | Scoop.it
"Whether you’re interesting in blending, flipping, personalizing, or differentiating your classroom, technology can be a huge help.

Whether you want to lead an in-person class through the iPad screen, or you need remote access to eLearners or others in a school-to-school program, you’ve got options. Below are 8 apps (with various strengths and weaknesses–the only way to know if they truly fit your needs is to try them, unfortunately) that can help you blend and flip your classroom–or just give students more direct access to you, one another, and the content."
