"I love word clouds. It is the best way to deconstruct a piece of text with students. It lets you start that conversation about language, text types, literacy and the power of the written word. It is also a great way to do a text analysis. Marco Torres talks about using them to compare two political speeches to analyse the types of words each of the candidates use but this idea would work just as easily with characters in a book, types of poems or even a series of artists you are studying."

5 Interesting Ways to Use iPad in The Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

5 Interesting Ways to Use iPad in The Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

"After the tremendous success following the publication of " 9 starter tips for teachers who have just got a new iPad " iPad4schools has put forward this new graphic featuring a set of interesting ideas teachers and students can try during the 5 minutes, 5 days, and 5 weeks  'when introducing a new initiative or technology.'

With each digital tip an app or a couple more are suggested and which can better execute that idea. If you are thinking in Bloom's Taxonomy terms then I must say that most, if not all, of the apps included in this graphic correspond with the "creation" level in the Bloom's thinking continuum. I invite you to have a look and try out some of the ideas mentioned in this work."
