7 Great iPad Apps to Promote Visual Thinking ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

7 Great iPad Apps to Promote Visual Thinking ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Iteacher | Scoop.it

Today while I was looking for a citation from " Making Thinking Visible: How to Promote Engagement, Understanding, and Independence for All Learners " http://ow.ly/k2SpU ; , it dawned on me to compile a list of the  popular iPad apps that promote visual thinking. Making Thinking Visible is by all means a must read for those of you interested in knowing how thinking can be made visible at any grade level and across all subject areas through the use of effective questioning, listening, documentation, and facilitative structures called thinking routines. Another book I have in my shelf and which is more or less similar to the one cited above is " Blah Blah Blah: What To Do When Words Don't Work " http://ow.ly/k2Svy ; in which Dan walks his readers through the different practices of making thinking vivid with less words."

ghbrett's curator insight, September 3, 2013 12:09 PM

There are many choices for iPads as well as Android tablets. Some include plugins that you can pay to add. Some of the more complex apps include the ability to paste in photographs or other images. While there are even note taker apps that include the function for adding audio -- whether from a meeting speaker or from yourself explaining the ideas you are capturing.

 

One thing to consider when using these applications is whether or not you need a better suited stylus. There are a variety now that are more responsive, thinner, use BlueTooth for greater control.

There are times when this connectivity is lost or when WiFi is not picked up or when you are in the woods with no cellular service, in cases such as these, does your iPad have any value any more ? Jeff Dumm has the answer for this. He had diligently worked on the graphic below to share with us what we can do with our iPads when there is no connectivity

Seriously useful Apps here.  I know these tend to be repeated, but it shows these Apps a are well tested.

For anyone who still finds these lists useful... I guess there's an analytic you can use - if an app is constantly mentioned it probably has something going for it.
