5 Free iPad Apps Students Can Use for Taking Notes - iPad Apps for Schools | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"One of the things that I love about the start of the new school year is that so many students have goals for making “this year the year they…” For many students that blank is filled in with “stay organized” or “take better notes.” If your students are going to be using iPads in your classroom this year, here are five free iPad apps they can try for taking notes and keeping those notes organized."

Hopscotch Helps Kids Learn to Program On Their iPads

Hopscotch Helps Kids Learn to Program On Their iPads | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Over the weekend I published Three Free iPad Apps That Teach Kids To Program. Since then I’ve had many people tell me to try Hopscotch. Hopscotch is a free iPad app that introduces students to programming logic. In Hopscotch students put command boxes into order to make cartoon avatars move and draw lines. Students can program one or all of the cartoon avatars to move and follow commands based on touch or on the movement of their iPads.

Reflections from an Elementary School Principal: We're Going 1:1 with iPads!!!

Reflections from an Elementary School Principal: We're Going 1:1 with iPads!!! | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"Can you hear my excitement already? You read that right...we are going 1:1 with iPads in all of our preschool through 5th grade classrooms in our elementary school.

Since I have learned from so many other blogs about integrating technology I plan to share our learning here, but also hope to get input from others on questions that we have.

Here's what led up to this 1:1 decision:"

Info graphics are a great way to assemble and distribute information, especially data in one document. Teachers can request their students to compile data and create a visual to share quantifiable information.

Technology In Music Education

Technology In Music Education | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"Have you used technology today while teaching music class?

 

Since I arrived at school at 7:10 this morning I have! I started by scanning in Euphonium parts for the community band, 16 of them. That took about 5 minutes. Then I scanned all the parts for our marching band show for next fall. Three songs, all parts…. That took about one minute per song…. Three minutes and thirty seconds total. I’ve got to pause here and say that I really love the Kinolta BizHub copier/scanner our school purchased a few years ago! Scanning is fast, wicked fast! Every sheet of music I digitize is time saved later. For instance let me continue…."

I find this article very interesting to read. As a student that has attempted to bring music into the work environment of education I finally get to see the process of bringing it into the school like environment.

breezecardshawty's curator insight, October 10, 2013 11:25 AM

I think this is great especially for kids looking to get into the world of music early.

Kirsten Macaulay's curator insight, December 7, 2013 4:13 AM

Music teachers can multi-task. Technology helps us streamline the admininstration/ work to enable us to get the task of creating and making music faster with our students.

Don't Miss These Two Fabulous Graphics on BYOD for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Don't Miss These Two Fabulous Graphics on BYOD for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"Just a little reminder. BYOD in education refers to students bringing their own technology devices ( smartphones, tablets, and laptops. ) to school for educational uses. This was initially started by college students, but it soon spread to K-12 education. Schools that used to depend on government funds to provide technology that students would need for the school day , are now turning that responsibility to the parents by asking them to purchase the technology devices needed for schools, which, fortunately enough, most students actually own. This would cut down on schools' huge yearly technology expenditure.

BYOD indeed! Many schools have outdated technology and cannot afford to upgrade every 2-3 years.
