6 Apps You Should Be Using with Evernote ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

6 Apps You Should Be Using with Evernote ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads for education | Scoop.it

"Evernote is definitely one of the apps I use everyday. It helps me stay organized and scales up my productivity. However, the app has even more to offer when used with other partner apps. These apps  are particularly useful in expanding Evernote functionality  and in providing you with a richer and organized experience."

These are great apps if you use evernote
Lou Salza's curator insight, June 1, 2013 5:02 PM

I started using Evernote for storing notes from meetings so I could retrieve them on any device at any location.  It is searchable and does way more than keep notes stored and accessible. This site will lead you to excellent explanations of Evernote and its functionality. It can be particularly useful  for teachers and their students !--Lou

I need explore the power of Evernote.  The power to use this as a 'notebook' for learners intrigues me.

Shoot, Edit, and Share Videos With the Loopster iPad App

Shoot, Edit, and Share Videos With the Loopster iPad App | iPads for education | Scoop.it

"Loopster is a video editing tool that I first tried as a web app last fall. Recently, I learned that Loopster has a free iPad app. The free iPad app offers all of the same features that are available in the web version of the service. The Loopster iPad app provides a four track editor. There are tracks for video and images, transitions, sounds, and text. You can import images and videos from your iPad’s camera roll or shoot a new video with the app and edit it. On the video editing track you can trim clips and combine clips. On the text track you can add speech bubbles and other text effects. Loopster has a slow motion effect that is available on the iPad app too."

Mystery Math Town – Take the Mystery out of Math! - The Wonder of Tech

Mystery Math Town – Take the Mystery out of Math!  - The Wonder of Tech | iPads for education | Scoop.it

"f you have a child who is befuddled by math, loves games, or both, you need to check out Mystery Math Town. This brand spanking new app is so very much fun that the only mystery will be how to get your iPad back from your kids once they start playing it.

 

Mystery Math Town is from Artgig Studios, the developer who brought you Marble Math, Alien Buddies and Shake-a-Phrase (see, Fun Apps to Entertain (and Educate) Your Child), and is filled with high quality images and sounds. The app is designed for kids ages 6-12, but I quickly discovered that adults can have fun playing this game too! The app takes you on a journey through Mystery Math Town, navigating through houses and solving math problems to achieve your goals."

I'm going to incoporate this with vocabulary words with my pull-out classes when reading required curriculum text.  We listen to the text on CD but will explore the vocabulary words in numerous ways.  Just another tool to use! :)

Flipping the Class with Explain Everything & Google Drive - Turning Learning On Its Head

Flipping the Class with Explain Everything & Google Drive - Turning Learning On Its Head | iPads for education | Scoop.it
Today I did a workshop for Chicago Public Schools where I helped them think through how to use iPads to flip their classes.   If you are considering using iPads to create flipped videos, there are many tools.  One of them is Explain Everything.   And since CPS is a google apps school system I developed a workflow for them to share the videos they created with Explain Everything to google drive.  (This is also a playlist on my YouTube channel) .

Flipping your classroom using Google Drive is worth considering.  You can't beat free!

Many students now have ipads or they are used in schools.  Another great way for students to personalize their learning.
