Top iPad Apps 2013 FREE eBook - Teq | ipads | Scoop.it

"iPads are a great educational tool. In addition to the built in features that can be leveraged to assist learners of all types, the Apple App Store contains thousands of useful apps for teachers and students. 

We believe the right mix of apps is required to help the iPad reach its full potential as an effective teaching and learning tool.

 

Finding apps can be difficult and time consuming.

 

Here is an eBook of our favorite apps that we discovered over the past year, as well as examples of how to use them in your classroom. Enjoy!"

The evolution of Digital Skills

The evolution of Digital Skills | ipads | Scoop.it

What skills will the IT professional need in the near future and how similar are these to the skills needed by the marketer? As Gen Y steps up to take centre stage in the employment pool, and technology increasingly dominates our life and work, it is predicted that there will be an 18% growth in tech jobs by 2022.

 

This infographic looks at how tech roles have evolved alongside the technology they support. It charts the changes of the past 25 years to offer glimpse into what roles are likely to be in demand for the next decade.

Students use iPads to illustrate Earth's age - TimesHerald | ipads | Scoop.it
MARYSVILLE – More than 150 iPads lit up the gym at Marysville Middle School on Thursday.

The eighth grade earth science students created a large geological timeline of the earth by lining up their iPads side-by-side.

Ben Horner, eighth grade earth science teacher, used technology in his classroom by having each iPad represent a different geological stage.

"I wanted to demonstrate the enormity of geological time," Horner said. "I struggle in the classroom to teach something that is so long on a single piece of paper or on a video screen — we are talking about 4.6 billion years."

Paper - A Sketching App Now Free for Everyone - iPad Apps for School | ipads | Scoop.it
Paper is an iPad app for sketching and creating free-hand outlines. I’ve seen a lot of people use it over the last year, but I couldn’t get myself to pay for it when there were other good sketching apps available for free. Last night I received an email from Paper’s marketing department in which they announced that the app is now completely free to use. All of the in-app purchases have been made free too.

Using Showbie with the SAMR Model - Showbie

Using Showbie with the SAMR Model - Showbie | ipads | Scoop.it

"Since I began using iPads in my teaching 4 years ago, choosing the right tools for a lesson becomes even more important. This is simply down to the number of apps that are targeted at education. It could be the case that a teacher would look at their weekly planning and type each lesson keyword into the App Store to find an app for every lesson. What the teacher may be left with is very little space on the school iPads, very little space left in the school budget and very little confidence left in the school teachers who are unfamiliar with using iPads in their lessons and are presented with an iPad with hundreds of apps installed. The question is: how many of the education apps out there actually improve upon existing teaching and learning resources? This is where the SAMR model comes in. Every classroom in the world has resources: books, tools, posters and often technology. Technology in my opinion is another classroom tool that does not replace other resources, rather co-exist with them. Choosing technology for every lesson can be tempting but often, it is not required."

The Brutal Authenticity Of BYOD - TeachThought

The Brutal Authenticity Of BYOD - TeachThought | ipads | Scoop.it
“Digital natives” or not, technology dropped into the laps of students in schools isn’t always as accessible as it might be. By allowing students to bring in their own devices for learning–rather than insisting that they learn both content and device in school–there is an important opportunity to connect with not just their personal lives, but their natural way of doing things.

BYOD provides students not just with a device, but apps–and thus pathways–to solve problems. If you think this is a minor thing, stand in a middle school classroom with 32 students and watch a teacher coach—and coax–students through computer-based testing on a room full of laptops.

Unfamiliar software, unfamiliar hardware, and unfamiliar workflows are real barriers to student performance.

While the best teachers mitigate this ahead of time by supplying log-ins, double-checking passwords, pairing students, offering screenshots, modeling the process on a projector, this is a tremendous waste of what many districts call “instructional time,” and what students call “school.”

BYOD, on paper, attempts to solve a significant part of this issue.

ISTE - 6 elements of a successful iPad implementation | ipads | Scoop.it

 - As more districts across the United States move to 1:1 initiatives, a common barrier is financial resources, and a common temptation is to regard these initiatives as technology enterprises rather than instructional transformations. In a three-year pilot project, the Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) addressed these challenges by implementing a creative approach designed to entice public funders by providing all students with equitable access to digital devices.

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool | ipads | Scoop.it

Book creator has probably been the app I have used most, in my teaching, with pupils and in my training. The blank canvas aspect means it can be used across the whole curriculum and the addition of the pen tool in the last few weeks has added to that.

 

We use Showbie at school for pupils to share their work, including books made with Book Creator from the iPads and home to the teachers for assessment. Recently, we have used both the Pen Tool and Record feature to give feedback on the pupils' eBooks. The pupils send their books using Showbie and the teacher opens them up on his/her iPad. They can then annotate with their voice, pen and text. The book can then be sent back to the pupils using Showbie. The pupil can either change the original book and delete the annotated one or change the annotated book and delete the original.

 

The screenshot shows a book of a Science experiment. The teacher can annotate with arrows but also add audio feedback. All elements of Book Creator can be deleted so the pupil can restore any annotated book to the original.

 

This is obviously not a new idea but the pen tool has certainly made this quicker in a widely used app such as Book Creator.

One of my fav's is poll everywhere. I like to use it in the first class with a new group of learners to capture their course learning goals/ motivations etc. This can be generated into a word cloud that I post in my first weekly forum. enjoy.

 

pros:

free for basic

generate a slide to insert in your presentation

one click to generate a word cloud

 

Cons:

allocate extra time in your session plan the first time you use it with a new group

learners need access to a hand-held device to participate

Teaching with Technology in the Middle: Teaching kids to curate

Teaching with Technology in the Middle: Teaching kids to curate | ipads | Scoop.it
Quite a bit of what I read online are pieces that have been remixed and re-purposed. It’s content that has been taken from various places on the web, then collected and organized, or “curated,” by someone other than the original author of that content. It’s a form of composition that is definitely real-world, but until this year, it wasn't a format I had given much thought to inviting my students to write.


Asking student writers to curate, though, is a worthwhile venture.

The SAMR Model In 120 Seconds - teachthought

The SAMR Model In 120 Seconds - teachthought | ipads | Scoop.it
This is not a post about the SAMR model (a way of thinking about how to teach with technology that uses an acronym as a mnemonic device)–well, not in any way that’s going to further the conversation around it, or push your thinking about the ins and outs of using it.

In December, we shared a post that used Starbucks as an analogy to illustrate the SAMR model. We also shared a post about using the SAMR model for more effective teaching with apps. We’ve even offered a kind of alternative to the SAMR model with our Stages of #edtech Disruption.

So why share a simple video of the same model we’ve already covered in more detail elsewhere? Because, in lieu of the slightly murky analogy involing cheese and tennis balls, the video does a pretty good job of explaining the idea in less time than it takes to watch Apple make another $18-billion-of-profits-in-a-single-quarter announcement.
