Creating Word Collages on the iPad, fun and easy. | iGo With My iPad | Edupads | Scoop.it

"You may not know what they are called, a Word Collage is a sort of Word Cloud. A mixing of words into a graphic that represents a message. Normally, we create these on our computers. Now, with Word Collage, we can create and share them completely on our iPads. Actually, Word Collage is a Universal app so you can use on both the iPad and iPhone, though we lean towards to the iPad with this tool."

Collaborative software for the iPad – iPad whiteboard

Collaborative software for the iPad – iPad whiteboard | Edupads | Scoop.it

Whether it be in the educational scenario or possibly for a business use, an iPad whiteboard application can be very useful for project collaboration. You do have some online collaboration tools available, I believe there is one within Google docs. When you have a situation when two or more people are working together, it can be very beneficial to have a single workspace."

"A group of children took part in a series of literacy lessons centred around the popular game Bike Baron by Qwibooand Mountain Sheep as outlined in detail at http://mrandrewsonline.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/part-1-raising-standards-in-boys.html . The aim was to raise standards in writing. The work is based on the success of the Controllable Vehicle project which demonstrated that the iPad can significantly enhance pupil understanding and interest in a topic leading to accelerated progress in speaking, listening and writing."

"You probably saw the title of this post and thought ‘okay there’s no friggin’ way he’s going to assemble a list of the best 50,000 education apps. But thanks to a partnership between Edudemic and FindTheBest, we’ve done just that. We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to build a robust directory of, as of this writing, about 56,000 education apps.

But it’s not just a list… it’s a finely tuned directory capable of sorting out all the apps in ways not even available in the iTunes or Android stores."

Teaching and Learning: Using iPads in the Classroom

Teaching and Learning: Using iPads in the Classroom | Edupads | Scoop.it

Ben Johnson asks: If I had thirty iPads in my class, what would I do with them? How would I use them to help my students learn better and help me teach better? Perhaps a better question is what would I do with them that I could not do with other tools that are available and cheaper? Certainly iPads are cheaper than computers, desktop or laptop, and they are more mobile.

 

Ben writes about strategies on the use of iPads in the classroom for all types of learners. I learned about a few I didn't know before: Clineometer for measuring the level of a wall or surface and also the precise angles of incline or decline. 

 

Thanks Ben! I'm going to check the apps out that you share.
