- 170 Ways To Use Word Clouds In Every Classroom | IT - It's ALL About the Learning! | Scoop.it

by Michael Gorman

 

"Once again, I am amazed every time I talk to groups and find out so many educators have not used word clouds with their students. In fact, I am so sure that you will enjoy this topic I have now up to 170 ways to use word clouds in the classroom. I have tried to include almost every subject. These are a collection of ideas shared with me, various readings, and a lot of my own brainstorming.

 

"This is an update I promised from my previous 125 ways to use word clouds. I know this will be an article you wish to share with others. In order to better understand some of the advanced uses I suggest you may wish to read a past posts entitled, 12 Valuable Wordle Tips You Must Read. I am certain you will find at least one new idea… and again please give a retweet.  Please note that if you wish two words to stay together in a word cloud using Wordle, just put a tilde between them. (Example (ice~cream~cone -"

Cyndi Danner-Kuhn's curator insight, May 19, 2014 7:59 PM

Today we’re delighted to announce iTunes U support for all your Bookry widgets.

In addition to using your widgets in your Multi-Touch books made with iBooks Author, you can also place them in any course on iTunes U. This is how it works:

Create your widgets on Bookry.com as before, using your computer or iPad.After creating your widget, tap on the ‘iTunes U and App Link’ tab.You are then presented with a unique widget code for you to place on iTunes U.

To view the widgets, all your students need to do is download the free Bookry Widgets App to their iPad and enter the widget code – simple!

So, if you want to add a Quiz to your course on iTunes U, simply upload your course documentation (e.g. Multi-Touch book, Keynote, PDF, Pages etc.) to iTunes U, then compliment this with your Bookry Quiz widget code, together with the codes of any other Bookry widgets you want to include. You can also provide them with a code for your book project (get this from your book tab on Bookry.com), so that they can download multiple widgets in one go.

"This picture was drawn in response to a post called 'Drawing On A Napkin: Is This How iPads Function In A Traditional Classroom?' by the esteemed Terry Heick. Mine was not drawn on a napkin, but on Notability. And, to answer that snarky Johannesburg based iPad trainer who cannot believe I can do what I do using the iPad, yes I did create it myself! This is what I think iPads are 'for' in education. Let me know what you think."

Have you ever Googled yourself ? Have you ever checked your virtual identity? Do you know that you leave a digital footprint every time you get online? Do you know that whatever you do online is accumulated into a digital dossier traceable by others ? These and several other similar questions are but the emerging tip of the sinking iceberg.One that is packed full of concerns related to issues of our online identity and privacy issues.

I plan to use this in my classroom. I'd like my students to do some critical thinking. 

Sharla Shults's curator insight, April 26, 2013 5:45 PM

This is sizzlin'! When we are first born, our physical handprint and footprint become part of our birth record. As we grow and learn, our digital footprint defines our lives: who we are, what we stand for, when we meet and greet others, where we have been, why we think as we do and how we inspire/motivate others, whether positively or negatively.

 

What are you leaving behind? Are you prepared to be Googled...by your parents, grandparents, friends, future employers?

19 Free iPad Apps for Musical Creativity: Play, Improvise and Record Music

19 Free iPad Apps for Musical Creativity: Play, Improvise and Record Music | IT - It's ALL About the Learning! | Scoop.it
Part 1 in a series of 5 articles featuring Top Free iPad Music Apps For Teachers.

Really, there are so many apps available it can be hard to know where to begin and once you find something that looks useful, it’s difficult to assess it properly until you’ve download and installed it on your iPad. iPad music apps that are free can take away the risk of choosing a dud and they can be useful when book-listing apps for students on a tight budget.

Over time, I’ve collected quite a number of free apps on my iPad. Generally speaking, paid apps are nearly always better – they are ad-free, there are fewer necessary in-app purchases to make the app functional, there are more features and they’re better-supported (something that’s often overlooked when deciding between free vs paid).

The following list of apps fall into the “creativity” category. This is the first post in a 5-part series – there were simply too many to list in a single post!. The five parts are as follows:

Part 1 – 19 Free iPad Apps for Musical Creativity: Play, Improvise and RecordPart 2 – 16 Free iPad Apps To Play and Learn Musical InstrumentsPart 3 – 9 Free iPad Apps To Help You Discover Orchestral Music and Explore SoundPart 4 – 8 Free iPad Apps for Ear-Training and LiteracyPart 5 – 10 Free iPad Music Tool Apps
