45+ Teacher Recommended Educational Apps : Teacher Reboot Camp

45+ Teacher Recommended Educational Apps : Teacher Reboot Camp | ipads | Scoop.it

"Educators are beginning to see the potential of using mobile devices and apps for ongoing professional development as well as to improve literacy and cognitive development for learners. Apps are equipped with several features that motivate learners to create stories, presentations, and projects that are hands-on and use their creativity as well as their critical thinking skills. Once an app is downloaded, many features can be accessed without an Internet connection. Educators can also use various apps at conferences to connect with other educators or capture a presentation. Below are the various apps nominated by teachers for an Edublog Award so they must be worth checking out. Each has a link and a description. Make sure to check out the Edublog Awards for blogs, wikis, and web tools that teachers worldwide have recommended."

15 Excellent Apps for Learning Activities in BYOD Classrooms ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

15 Excellent Apps for Learning Activities in BYOD Classrooms ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | ipads | Scoop.it

"YOD (Bring Your Own Device) is not only about students bringing their own  devices to class and using them for educational purposes. It is much  more than just a problem of hardware but is rather a question of what "learningware" students need to install and use with their devices. Most of the discussions on BYOD center around the accessibility and availability of devices together with  the fact that students are experts of their own devices. Sounds good but not enough!

Students need to be provided  powerful educational apps to galvanize the learning gen inside of them. They need to be shown what apps work with which.  Below is a chart created by  @tina_zita in which she generously shares with us a variety of apps and tools that students can use according to the learning task at work. Check them out below and share with us what you think of them."

iPads in Primary Education: Using The iPad Photo Stream To Develop Collaborative Learning

iPads in Primary Education: Using The iPad Photo Stream To Develop Collaborative Learning | ipads | Scoop.it

"This week's lesson was based around issues related to animal rights and medical research.  The children had access to iPad Minis which were connected to the school's wireless network.

 

By creating a photo stream, resources for the day could be shared with the pupils. These included photos, success criteria and examples of work. Pupils could then take copies of the content and annotate and present as they chose. The photo stream was created on one iPad and then shared with the individual pupil iPads."

iPads in Primary Education: Apps for Computer Science

iPads in Primary Education: Apps for Computer Science | ipads | Scoop.it

"As part of the proposed new draft primary curriculum for ICT, there is a significant emphasis on computer science. Below I've included a selection of apps which can be used in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. The apps included range from basic skills in coding a Beebot to more advanced skills in coding games and simulations in apps such as Hopscotch and Codea.


I've also included some other useful 'ICT' apps, which can be used to develop pupil's typing skills and Spreadsheet skills."
