Book Creator for iPad

Book Creator for iPad | iPads, School Networks and their Uses. | Scoop.it
Magically easy way to create and publish multimedia, digital books. Pros: It is so easy to make pages, kids can focus on creativity.Cons: In-app tutorial doesn't remind kids about basic components of a book (title, author byline, crediting image sources).Bottom Line: Top-quality book creator empowers kids of many ages to publish their own digital books.

Terry Haddow's insight:
A review of this app. Well liked and used by many. A good way of doing books directly on the ipad.

Free Technology for Teachers: Animoto Now Offers an iPad App

Free Technology for Teachers: Animoto Now Offers an iPad App | iPads, School Networks and their Uses. | Scoop.it
"This week Animoto, my "old and reliable" video creation tool, released a new iPad app. Animoto has offered an iOS app for years, but it wasn't optimized for iPad use. The new Animoto iPad app is optimized for iPad use and brings with it all of the great features that I love about Animoto. Just like on the web version of Animoto, on the iPad app you simply select pictures to use in your video then add a sound track to them. If you want to add a some text, you can do that too."

Google Drive iPad Portfolio

Vimeo is the home for high-quality videos and the people who love them.
Terry Haddow's insight:

A very clear video on the use of Google Drive, iPads and getting work off the ipads. The first section is all about Drive - the second section deals with apps - "Explain Everything" , "eBook Writer' , "Notability" and "iMovie". 14 minutes long but worth the watch.
