Every teacher should create a list of apps that work/don't work for their teaching purposes.

App #22: TeacherKit for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch [REVIEW]

App #22: TeacherKit for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch [REVIEW] | iPads in Education: Apps, Classroom Management, & More | Scoop.it

"Teacherkit for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is a free app (iTunes link) for teachers that many iPad/iPhone users will find extremely useful in the classroom. This app, formerly known as TeacherPal, claims to be the “perfect teaching companion” for teachers. I would agree; I have used this app for over a year now, and have been very satisfied with what it can do. The latest update at the end of summer has brought with it many improvements."

Learning and Teaching with iPads: Developing iPad learning workflows for best learning outcomes

Developing iPad learning workflows for best learning outcomes
Rethinking the approach to learning with an iPad was one of the key points that arose from our recent iPad study tour in Queensland.
Many of the schools talked about the development of 'Learning Workflows' where work is created in one app, then built on in another App and so on.
Using the iPad where many Apps are generally single function, requires a different approach to create useful learning outcomes that moves the integration of the iPad in learning from the Subsitution model to the Redefinition model.

iPad Artwork Inspired by Peter Reynold's "The Dot"

http://www.TheDotProject.org As part of our reading program, Mr. Colosi's First Grade class read the book "The Dot," by Peter Reynolds. Students were so inspired by the book's message of uniqueness that they decided to create art in a brand new way. Using the classroom iPad, each student sketched their own "dot" using the Drawing App app. Using this unique app, students were able to draw with crayons, paints, and markers to make original artwork that could be shared with the world! Want to see the Dot Art Gallery? Well just click on the admission ticket!

John Seely Brown on Technological Evolution: Your iPad is Like an Arthropod | Big Think

John Seely Brown on Technological Evolution: Your iPad is Like an Arthropod  | Big Think | iPads in Education: Apps, Classroom Management, & More | Scoop.it

by Daniel Honan

 

"Learning guru John Seely Brown finds an intriguing analogy between the disruptive technology of today and what evolutionary biologists have observed in the fossil record during a period over 500 million years ago. The Cambrian period was like evolution on steroids. After a period of long evolutionary stasis, a warming climate created marine habitats that gave birth to new complex life forms. Among the great evolutionary innovations of this period were animals with external skeletons, or arthropods.

 

"To follow Brown's analogy, if anthropologists many years from now are to look at our current "Cambrian explosion" they will see that in the early 21st century human biology did not change so much. Instead, humans have co-evolved with technology, acquiring increasingly sophisticated tools in a short period of time. So how are we to master these tools? According to Brown, as human beings functioning in the 21st century knowledge economy today, we develop mastery through imagination and play."

That was also a week where I was teaching and working on other things in the building. If i dedicated time exclusively to the task, I’m sure it would take even less."

In the spirit of my last post, I would like to share another science apptivity for the iPad. I wish I could take credit for this one but Bryan P Doyle is the author of the resource. I had the pleasure of attending his session at the Area 7 Conference this summer. The topic was “iConstruction”. We were assembled in small groups and given our materials (e.g. marshmallows and uncooked spaghetti noodles) with the challenge to build the tallest tower that could outstand the other towers for the longest period of time (or 30 seconds). Bryan’s full post and more info for the app-tivity can be found on his blog.
