16 Apps That Motivate Kids to Read

16 Apps That Motivate Kids to Read | Innovative Learning for students | Scoop.it

"For every kid who is caught hiding beneath his covers with a flashlight and a novel at midnight, there is another who has to be begged and pleaded with to read.  And the latter might need a little extra—shall we call it encouragement?—to become a great reader. To help, we've rounded up a list of the top apps that not only teach essential reading skills but also motivate kids—even the most book-phobic—to read, read and read some more."

TeachThought's 10 Most Popular Posts On iPad Integration | Innovative Learning for students | Scoop.it

"TeachThought is officially ten weeks old (yay us!), and to celebrate that incredible milestone (which is also the same as the gestation period of the North American Box Turtle), we’re putting together posts that reflect back on that time, while also acting as a kind of curation tool for some of the content you have found most helpful.

 

With that, below are ten of our most popular iPad posts, in no certain order, because, well, we don’t play favorites around here (even if you do). And if you suspect there might be a follow up post with ten more, you might be on to something."

Storytelling Fun With Foldify for iPad - iPad Apps for School by Richard Byrne

Storytelling Fun With Foldify for iPad - iPad Apps for School by Richard Byrne | Innovative Learning for students | Scoop.it

"Foldify is an iPad app that students can use to design all kinds of 3D figures on their iPads. After designing their figures students can print their designs with directions for folding their designs into 3D paper objects. Foldify provides basic templates for objects like cars, houses, and people. Students complete the templates by coloring them in, adding their own pictures to the templates, and adding fun digital stamps to the templates."

Voki on Glogster

Voki on Glogster | Innovative Learning for students | Scoop.it

Is there a way to embed a Voki on Glogster?  This is a very common question that we get from teachers! Unfortunately, the answer is no, you can’t embed a Voki on Glogster. But, we found a different way...

If you love Glogster for creating presentations and if you wish to insert a Voki "speaker" in your presentation, here is the way how you can do it.

The post gives you clear step-by-step instructions how it can be done. This may be particularly appealing to younger students.

David Donat's curator insight, July 24, 2013 3:26 PM

Una bona presentació de la "Flipped Classroom": no és un mètode pedagògic, sinó una manera més d'enfocar l'aprenentatge, que pot anar bé en algunes ocasions i que en d'altres no tant. Es pot plantejar com un recurs més, combinable amb qualsevol altre.

La meva opinió és que els alumnes són tan diversos que no hi ha cap metodologia "ideal". Cadascun necessitarà eines i processos diferents i per tant, quantes més dinàmiques i metodologies s'utilitzin (i més flexibles siguin) millor s'atendrà a cadascun d'ells. No cal dir que amb ratios de més de 30 adolescents per aula tampoc es poden fer miracles.
