Too Noisy - simple, but brilliant.

Tamsyn Smith's curator insight, June 4, 2013 4:57 AM

These are mainly free, although some are low-cost. I like the sound of Class Dojo as a behaviour management tool. The app to help reduce classroom noise also seems like a good idea.

" If your students are anything like ours, they respond  enthusiastically when we bring technology into the  classroom. We’ve also seen how technology can help  us stay organized and even become more efficient  classroom managers. But keeping up with rapidly changing technology—and weeding out what is useful and  what isn’t—can be challenging We want you to get your hands on the best technology out there, but we also want to help you get back to what  you do best-teaching. That’s why we’ve done the legwork for you and gathered 50 of what we consider to be the most useful websites and apps for teachers out there."

"Last month I realized I had put up these new charts, of lessons we learned, and kept running out of time to review them. So, I had the students make a video while reading them, and share with their team. Two members from each table/team, would go record themselves reading a chart, and when each person was done, they would rotate iPads and watch one anothers' video."

Moving at the Speed of Creativity | Why Your School Needs a Scratch Club [VIDEO]

Moving at the Speed of Creativity | Why Your School Needs a Scratch Club [VIDEO] | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"

This past year, fourth and fifth grade students at Independence Elementary School in Yukon, Oklahoma, have had the opportunity to participate in an after-school Scratch Club led by STEM teacher Chris Simon. Scratch is a free program from the MIT Media Lab, which permits learners of any age to create games, tell stories, make animations, and much more. In its new 2.0 version http://ow.ly/lCBMv ; , Scratch is entirely web-based, so it can even run on a Chromebook! Yesterday was the final day of “Scratch Club” for students at Independence Elementary this year, and several students shared the reasons why they enjoy Scratch and have loved the Scratch Club. In this five minute video compilation of their ideas http://ow.ly/lCBKM ; , pay attention to how several students mention the importance of “agency” and choice. Many report how they love the opportunity to be self-directed in their learning and to have opportunities to use their imaginations to create. Also notice the way one student references the “hard fun” of programming, which is something Gary Stager talks about often in the context of students learning to code. "

Una nueva forma de ver al arte de manera mas interactiva.

 

Jacques Lejeune's curator insight, June 2, 2013 6:07 AM

Van Gogh was truthfully the most prolific master painter of the 2nd.half of the 19th century. He died very young at the age of 37, but managed to paint hundreds of fantastic paintings. In the last three years of his life, his paintings became outstanding while his mental illness was aggravating. Nevertheless, he maintained till the last moment, a painting style full of colors and almost joyful.

Recordium - Add Visual Notes to Audio Recordings

Recordium - Add Visual Notes to Audio Recordings | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Recordium is a new iPad and iPhone for creating audio recordings. At first glance the app reminded me Sound Cloud. Like Sound Cloud, Recordium can be used to quickly create a spoken note or to record someone playing an instrument. Recordium can be used to trim the end or beginning of a recording. You can also snip out a middle portion of a recording and save it as a separate recording or trash it. Where Recordium gets interesting is in the annotation features. The app allows you to highlight and tag portions of your recordings. Your tags can even include pictures. Completed recordings can be shared to a number of services including Google Drive and Evernote.

iPadogogy, Portfolios  and iSense? - Dreaming Weaving Learning | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Slowly, sluggishly, another academic year draws towards its end. A year of bridges, a year of learning, a year of questioning. A year which leaves me with no e-portfolios to go through.

 

Some may find that a relief; personally, I find it a pity.

 

It is never too soon to have learners begin their e-portfolio, in particular when working within an iPadology framework. The question of e-portfolios has been widely accepted but where is the practice?"
