10 ways to use Skype in the classroom - The Edvocate

10 ways to use Skype in the classroom - The Edvocate | ICT bits & bobs | Scoop.it
Skype is an instructional tool that provides boundlessopportunities for authentic teaching and learning.  It allows us to explore beyond the four walls of our classrooms.  As elementary teachers, we sometimes battle to hold our students’ short attention spans. Integrating Skype lessons brings the curriculum to life in ways never before possible.  You know that special moment when you announce a class activity, and it’s greeted with claps, screams, and cheers?  That’s Skype.  It brings pure joy, wonder, and intrigue to your students.

Here’s a list of ten ways to utilize it in the elementary setting, followed by some logistical tips for success.

Non-Fiction Graffiti Walls - Choice Literacy

Non-Fiction Graffiti Walls - Choice Literacy | ICT bits & bobs | Scoop.it

I love nonfiction. I love learning about new things and broadening my horizons. But when I was a sixth grader, I was singing a different tune. I all but ignored the nonfiction books in our school and small-town library, and I couldn't have cared less about social studies and science. Mostly, I sat through those classes in a daze, daydreaming about other things or counting paragraphs in my textbook during round-robin reading so I could silently practice the portion I would have to read when it was my turn. I know how dry, boring, and not-relatable nonfiction can be. But it certainly doesn’t have to be. Not only is there an amazing amount of vivid and engaging nonfiction available for kids, but there are ways to help kids connect and delve into nonfiction with purpose and relish.

How to Change the Keyboard to Uppercase Letter Keys Again in iOS 9 - OSXDaily

How to Change the Keyboard to Uppercase Letter Keys Again in iOS 9 - OSXDaily | ICT bits & bobs | Scoop.it
One change with iOS 9 is the introduction of a lowercased onscreen keyboard by default on iPhone and iPad, which while it can make it easier to identify when caps lock is enabled or disabled, it can also be a bit more difficult on the eyes for some users, particularly on the iPhone with a smaller display. If you’d like to revert back to an uppercase keyboard again, which matches the keyboard styling on the vast majority of hardware keyboards and the keyboard in all versions of iOS prior to the 9.0 release, you can do so through a settings adjustment.

Why so many schools fail to get impact from iPad

Why so many schools fail to get impact from iPad | ICT bits & bobs | Scoop.it
70% of UK schools are now using mobile devices in the classroom, according to Tablets for Schools. The vast majority of those devices are likely to be iPads, yet how many schools can you name who are standout users of the device? That is to say, how many schools are using the device to deliver true 21st century transformational lessons?
