Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, March 14, 2014 1:34 AM

Jamtok is an app providing music and games for language learning. So far Spanish and Japanese are offered. (free)

Peter Rettig's curator insight, August 17, 2014 10:09 PM

We love the idea of jamtok as we also believe that songs are a great way to train your ear for a foreign language and memorize words, phrases, and sentences. We actually wrote several blogs on this and our "La Paloma" blog is one of our most read posts. This also reminds me that we should do a review of the app.

Google Apps, I believe are leading the way to student productivity. As teachers, we may see this as another hurdle in learning new technology, but students will grasp the concepts of Drive, Sharing, Collaborating, and etc, much easier than their teachers. I never thought about using the drawing as a whiteboard tool. Will have to give it a shot. Our district currently doesn't support hangouts, but with iPads we can probably use facetime in much the same way as described.

34 Diverse Blended Learning Apps For iPad - te@chthought | Apps in Education | Scoop.it

"Blended learning is a potentially powerful way of mixing the power of asynchronous access with face-to-face facilitation and instruction.

It’s this mixing of old and new that makes it tempting for many schools and districts wanting to dip their toes in the water of eLearning and far-reaching technology access while still depending on the expertise and training of human teachers."

"I loving using Keynote, both on the Mac and the iPad. Keynote is a powerful presentation tool where students can show off knowledge of a subject. There are many web-based presentation tools I love, but Keynote has some really cool features that really resonate with students. For this project, 2nd graders used Keynote to illustrate and animate the letters in their first names.  Here are some helpful tips if you do this project with your kiddos!"

iTeach 1:1: Student-Created Interactive QR Code Bulletin Boards

iTeach 1:1: Student-Created Interactive QR Code Bulletin Boards | Apps in Education | Scoop.it

"It’s no secret that I love using QR codes in my classroom, but this year I’ve been trying to incorporate more student-created QR code activities.  I recently made an inference activity I’ve been doing for years more interactive by turning it into a student-created QR code bulletin board. 

 After having some fun with this inference riddle website, my students created their own inference riddles in a similar fashion.  I had them type their riddles in Powerpoint and then generate a QR code with their top-secret answer.  To generate the QR code, they went to QRStuff.com and clicked the “Plain Text” option.  Then they typed their answer in the text box and clicked “Download QR Code.”  The last step was to drag the QR code into their Powerpoint presentation."

Tales of Fourth Grade Somethings - Top 5 Math Apps in Grade 4A

Tales of Fourth Grade Somethings - Top 5 Math Apps in Grade 4A | Apps in Education | Scoop.it

"In our class this year, we have been blessed with four available iPads for the kids to use this year during our Math Centre time.

 

However, I have been told by many of my students that they have gone home that night and downloaded many of the games!  I was shocked!  A good surprised kind of shocked that is. I know it is technology and it is more prevalent in our culture and society and especially schooling now that it has been and is still growing, but the fact they had enough fun during Math class to spend their own personal time at home to download a game was astounding!  It was also very rewarding and made me realize how much fun Math has become during our Math Centres!

 

For you parents or fellow teachers who are looking for some good apps (these do cost a little bit, but are worth it!) here are some maybe you can get your kids to work on their numeracy skills at home on your very own iPad devices. "

Scrivener is fantastic but is not an app - it's software to be installed on a PC or Mac.

 

For those that prefer Thinking Maps, you might find Inspiration Maps a better option to Popplet as it provides more flexible mapping with varied shapes.
