"One of the things that I love about the start of the new school year is that so many students have goals for making “this year the year they…” For many students that blank is filled in with “stay organized” or “take better notes.” If your students are going to be using iPads in your classroom this year, here are five free iPad apps they can try for taking notes and keeping those notes organized."

Testing, especially any sort of standardized testing tends to get a bad rap. Teachers complain that they spend too much time teaching to a test. But assessments do have value, and an important place in our learning structure. By measuring what students are learning, we as teachers can look at how we are approaching different subjects, materials, and even different students. The handy infographic takes a look at different types of assessments and their attributes and questions. Keep reading to learn more.

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.

Van Gogh Art Essentials's comment, June 2, 2013 6:38 AM

"In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices.

The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same."

"Ask a group of high school teachers what they want from technology in the classroom, and you’re likely to hear variations on three answers: They want tools that help students write well, do research based on solid references, and improve time-management skills. When students enter high school, educational technology is no longer mainly for drilling or practice or simply keeping students engaged. Now tech provides the day-planner, the reference library, and the easily carried note-taking method that can help high school students succeed."
