While the potential is great, in short a QR Code is a physical link that can be scanned by smartphones or tablets in mobile learning circumstances. The following list from listly user Marianna Talei offers a huge variety of QR resources, from QR code generators to attaching images and hosting QR code treasure hunts."

15 iPad Apps to Enhance Students Creativity ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

15 iPad Apps to Enhance Students Creativity ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | teaching | Scoop.it

"I am revisiting this topic of enhancing students creativity using iPad apps for the second time this year. Almost 10 months ago I featured here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning a selection of some great apps http://bit.ly/185Tusc that can be used in class to boost students creative thinking; and today and after having reviewed hundred of new educational apps since that post, I decided to compile an updated version of that list and include some newly featured apps in the category of creativity.

Of course by creativity I mean giving students the chance to take their learning to the next step, one in which they are active producers and participators in knowledge building. Creativity is all about creation and iPad is an ideal device to support this creative thinking. Check out the apps I have handpicked for you today and share with us if you have other suggestions :"

"In response to growing interest and inquiries regarding flipping the iPad equipped classroom, I have begun considering the many ways in which the popular tablet’s unique capabilities and myriad applications can play a role in flipped teaching and learning. Last week, in Part 1 of this two part post, we considered the topics of Finding and Creating Digital Learning Content, Delivering & Consuming Learning Content, and Ensuring Content Consumption. This week we continue our exploration by delving into how to use class time, reinforcing learning, assessment, and lastly – tools for organization and productivity (an important consideration in all types of classrooms, not just the ‘flipped’ ones!)."

When To Put The Tech Away In Your 1:1 (or Any) Classroom | teaching | Scoop.it

We’d had enough technology, and now it was time to re-engage as a class. Clearly, the iMacs had become a deterrent to learning rather than a catalyst, so it was time to re-group. Would I recommend the above strategy to middle or high school students?

The Teacher's Quick Guide To Digital Scavenger Hunts - Edudemic

The Teacher's Quick Guide To Digital Scavenger Hunts - Edudemic | teaching | Scoop.it
If you've got a smartphone or a tablet in your classroom, you're ready for the adventure to begin! By adventure I mean digital scavenger hunts.

 

Digital scavenger hunts should be carefully prepared so don’t rush into them. They’re fun and, if done properly, will get students excited to do another one. If instead students spend the entire time asking you, the teacher, questions … then it’s not ideal. Instead, make sure the hunt is planned out so that the students can only ask questions of each other. That’s likely the best way to keep the active learning process in high gear.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, October 15, 2013 11:14 PM

Some great ideas here for engagement. A digital scavenger hunt is like the old WebQuest (oh no, now these are old!) where students follow a path to various clues. They can be very subject-specific or quite broad. I think it would be a good way of introducting a self-paced programme.

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | teaching | Scoop.it

"The interest in inquiry-based learning seems to ebb and flow based on–well, it’s not clear why it ever ebbs.

 

In short, it is a student-centered, Constructivist approach to learning that requires critical thinking, and benefits from technology, collaboration, resourcefulness, and other modern learning skills that never seem to fall out of favor themselves.

 

Regardless, St Oliver Plunkett Primary School has put together two very useful images that can help you populate your iPad–or classroom of iPads–with apps that support both inquiry-based learning (the second image below), and a more general approach to pedagogy based on Apple’s uber-popular tablet (the top image)."

Another delve into the use of Apps in inquiry learning that further cements my train of thinking that the most effective way for TLs to support Inquiry learning with technology is by providing apps as support resources. Whilst incredible short and most just a preface for the attached pair of graphics it dos draw the connection that Inquiry learning is student-centred and aims to promote collaboration, resourcefulness, creativity and question asking as modern learning skills. The 1st graphic breaks educational apps into potential applications such as Search Engine, Scrapbooking, communication and multimodal. The 2nd graphic is potentially more useful as it breaks apps into phases of inquiry: Tune In, Collect/Curate and Synthesise. The apps are also identified on the left as teacher apps for guiding, facilitating and scaffolding use, whereas the left are students apps for problem solving, critical thinking, creating, collaborating and communicating.

Meleny Weber's curator insight, October 14, 2013 4:23 PM

This article on  Edudemic is very useful for all teachers and future teachers who are interested in incorporating more technology into their classroom, especially iPads. I think Ipads can be very beneficial to a classroom for a variety of reasons. They offer more dynamic activities for students to assist in learning. They also make things run more smoothly in the classroom. This article allows insight into why some schools have been failing at implementing iPads into the curriculum, and offers a solution. Very good ideas! For example, the author writes that a language teacher may think iPads don't work well in his or her classroom because there is not a good enough app in the language. The article then offers the solution of purchasing other apps, such as a voice recording one, so the teacher can record her/himself saying the words in the language. This will allow the students to listen and hear how the words should sound. I completely trust this author's opinion and ideas because he states that he went to a iPads in the Classroom workshop at Harvard University over the summer for several days, where they learned all of the beneficial applications teachers and students can use in the classroom. Hopefully one day in my own classroom I will have the opportunity to incorporate an iPad, and if I do I will absolutely use these ideas.
