Fantastic read with some great tips and tricks for using iPads in the classroom. By including this small technological tool in the classroom could help students be more engaged in their learning. It can replace just simple notebooks with a interactive collaborative tool.
Paul Miller's curator insight, May 26, 10:09 PM
There are so many uses for the Ipad that I was never aware of. Things that could be used in the classroom. The ability to annotate comes in hand when a student is recording a process journal for a Technologies subject. 
Samantha Smith's comment, May 31, 6:52 AM
This was a great read. It's amazing to think all the different ways an IPad can be utilised in the classroom. I think incorporating the use of this technology can help with the engagement and learning among students.

Free Technology for Teachers: Three Free iPad Apps for Creating Animated Movies

Free Technology for Teachers: Three Free iPad Apps for Creating Animated Movies | iPad Learning Apps and Ideas | Scoop.it
Last night I answered an email from a reader who was looking for a free alternative to Tellagami. Tellagami hasn't been updated to work with iOS 11 so if you've updated your iPad, the app won't work. Tellagami says that an update is coming, but I'm not holding my breath waiting for that. They said the same thing about the Android app and eventually just removed the Android app from Google Play. So if you're looking for a free iPad app to use to create animated videos, try one of the following three options.

How to Add More Apps (Up to 15) to Dock on iPad - OSXDaily

How to Add More Apps (Up to 15) to Dock on iPad - OSXDaily | iPad Learning Apps and Ideas | Scoop.it

"If you’re an iPad owner who frequently uses many different apps, you’ll appreciate the ability to add more apps than ever before into the Dock of iOS on the iPad. Now, any iPad running iOS 11 or later can place up to 15 apps in the Dock on the device.


This is more of a usability tip than much else, but it’s one of those little changes to iOS that is easily overlooked since most iPad users are long accustomed to the older Dock limits."

Daniela Jimenez's curator insight, September 30, 2017 9:14 PM
Technological devices and their applications make part of daily human life and encourage us to use it. Mobile technologies have the potential to support second-language learning because it provides autonomous learning opportunities and access to learning materials. For the last decade, technologies have been used by educators, school administrators, and students in education to help themselves in teaching and learning. Nowadays institutions and students are moving towards the use of mobile technologies which have become the biggest tool that had rapidly gaining importance in this field. Therefore, the use of a tool such as Instagram that is seen as a tool for daily entretaining, can be useful also for learning and teaching because it is capable of opening many possibilities for language learners, and their rapid adoption makes it easier to make students engage and develop easier their interest and motivation. Having technology multifunctional devices used for communication, entertainment, networking and learning, they are seen as potentially useful for EFL learning and instruction because of its easy portability and connectivity.
