36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | Teaching tools | 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)."

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, February 6, 2014 5:05 PM

One of my Critical Thinking Gurus is Richard Paul.  I met him in a bar in Arizona a few years before I left the classroom to teach online. We had one of the great discussions of my life. His thinking and teaching transformed my questioning style when I was a classroom teacher and seeped into my DNA when I went into online work.  Here is a series of videos available on YouTube that I would turn to if I were teaching a class devoted solely to Critical Thinking.  

Allan Shaw's curator insight, February 6, 2014 6:07 PM

'Asking questions that takes thinking apart'! This is very useful as a reflection tool. I appreciate highly the connection made by Richard Paul between thinking and content.

Possibly some competition for Prezi, but will it be a more of a distraction rather than a tool of engagement?

So… you’ve read all the blogs and articles you can find telling you what you should do when designing Moodle courses, but you’re still not 100% happy with what you’ve developed? Well, welcome to the post that tells you what not to do. Typically, I wouldn’t use negative examples to express how to implement best practices in Moodle course design, but sometimes we all just need a clear and concise ‘what not to do’ list, don’t we?

Each SlideIdea presentation is provided a unique URL (i.e, www.sld.im/12345 ). Regardless of the location, an audience can simply input the URL into their internet browser and then immediately follow along with slides, participate in polls, ask questions, or even network.

Slideidea, uma nova ferramenta online de criação de slides, permite-lhe criar excelentes apresentações a partir de uma coleção de templates moderna e muito completa.

Mas onde Slideidea se distingue verdadeiramente da concorrência é nas suas possibilidades de interação com a audiência: cada apresentação recebe um url único, para partilha, que permite, ao público acompanhar a apresentação slide a slide, fazer comentários, votações, questões, etc.

Slideideia permite ainda importar (e melhorar) apresentações Powerpoint e ficheiros Pdf.

Não chega? Muito bem: com Slideideia pode ainda gravar as suas falas durante a apresentação. Excelente!

Sophie Charlotte Foster's curator insight, October 8, 2013 5:13 AM

The article discusses the emergence of Ipads into education and academic syllabus. Statistics are given - with the majority favouring the use of tablets, particularly Ipads, in educational environments. Teachers are allowing students to use Ipads as it is believe that students study more efficiently with tablets. There has been an increase in Ipad sales, and this is due to thousands of school districts providing students with Ipads as a studying device. A large percentage of students use or would like to use tablets as a learning tool as it is convenient and efficient. Publishers are also preparing for technological change in education. They are providing digital copies of textbooks to Apple in order to remain innovative in education. It is evident that Ipad use in education is the future and the way forward.
