This Is What We Share On Tablets - Edudemic | iPad apps for education | Scoop.it
Not long ago, we looked at typing speed on iPads vs laptops. The studies cited found that on average, users typed 2-5 words per minute faster on an iPad than on a traditional keyboard. A couple of years ago, my mother got her first piece of “real” technology. It was an iPad. She was completely …

Looks interesting,thanks.
Vicki Mast's curator insight, September 13, 2013 11:24 AM

I just downloaded the free version which looks good, but may have to upgrade. The features look well worth the $3.99 price. You can move & resize your drawn objects, zoom in/out, etc. If you're working on creating "flipped classroom" videos, or how-to tutorials this may be what you need. Check out their website and user guide for the details.

Useful for explaining concepts in a visually interesting way.

10 Powerful iPad Apps For English And History - Edudemic

10 Powerful iPad Apps For English And History - Edudemic | iPad apps for education | Scoop.it

"When I first started teaching English with 1:1 iPads, I was really jealous of the science and fine arts teachers. They had all of the most engaging apps, and I was left with a lowly word processor and an instant thesaurus.

 

Fortunately, so much has changed. I now have the flexibility to duck in and out of my students’ papers as they write and leave them comments on drafts in progress. I have the resources to connect them with a real-world network of readers who authentically guide them to books they will enjoy through reviews and ratings. "

Theophilus's curator insight, March 19, 2014 4:03 AM

What I like about this idea is the centrality of learning as opposed to the centrality of the device. We've discovered that sharing a device have far-reaching and positive possibilities for networking, interaction, teamwork and collaboration in the formal learning environment. OLPC is an example of a notion that goes the other way - individualism, not to mention, the complexities when trying to enable young learners to focus.

We will be deploying iPads after Spring break. Timely article.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, March 28, 2014 7:46 PM

Very useful ideas. I think I will try applying some of these to my classroom.

"Here are the main apps I suggest for storytelling.
