90 iPad Apps Teachers should Try This School Year ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

90 iPad Apps Teachers should Try This School Year ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Topics | Scoop.it

"With the abundance of apps in the app store comes the question of what apps are really worth using with students in class and how to get your hands on them.A teacher who has a busy schedule with increasing workload in school is highly unlikely to have the time and energy to go online and sift through piles of apps to find the ones he/she wants to use. This is a time consuming task ."

Can we read with our ears?

Can we read with our ears? | Topics | Scoop.it

Many students with weak decoding skills can read: with their ears. As teachers, we can make a strategic choice of differentiating in our lessons in order to allow a poor reader to ‘read with their ears’ in class until the time they can read with their eyes. As long as this occurs alongside additional intervention to address their decoding difficulties, we may be improving his or her life chances by providing this opportunity.

An interesting article - relevant to literacy skills and accessibility. Helping pupils to be able to access the curriculum despite poor reading skills seems to be a no-brainer.

For those that are lifelong learners  and in the learning mode as opposed to the knowing mode.  Let me count the ways to get a message across no matter what the age of the student is.

Marzano's famous "Nine" continue to be the topic of many professional development agendas, and continue to deliver research-based and improved student outcomes.  A "must-know" for the teaching vocation.

 Indeed, the iPad is a tool for creativity. Students can build digital projects, by using images, podcasts, videos and music to increase the appeal of their work.

I have also found that the iPad is fantastic when used as a rotational activity for practising skills during literacy and maths lessons; especially for kids who are struggling. Thus its a great tool to use when differentiation of curriculum is important.

Elaine Watkins's curator insight, September 3, 2013 8:43 AM

Worth a read, some great points made here... iPads are amazing tools if used to their potential.

The researchers found that the initial duplication process mattered a great deal. When children had drawn a letter freehand, they exhibited increased activity in three areas of the brain that are activated in adults when they read and write: the left fusiform gyrus, the inferior frontal gyrus and the posterior parietal cortex.
