18 Fantastic Free iPad Apps for Social Studies - Class Tech Tips

18 Fantastic Free iPad Apps for Social Studies - Class Tech Tips | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"Whether you have one iPad, a few, or a class set, there are plenty of great apps that will come in handy in the Social Studies classroom.  These apps provide access to primary source documents, reinforce geography concepts, and help children explore the world around them!"

Nick Urban's curator insight, July 16, 2015 6:08 PM

This resource offers a great variety of free iPad apps for social studies content. Although it fails to detail each app in the browser, it links you to a detailed description and "How To" for each app. I personally like "Old and New: Primary Sources in the 21st Century" and Changing America on iPads. Great apps to try for all of those beginning or already instituting iPads into their classroom.

How To Search Historical Newspaper Images Using Artificial Intelligence - TeachThought

How To Search Historical Newspaper Images Using Artificial Intelligence - TeachThought | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Teachers and students (or anyone else in the public, for that matter) can now explore more than 1.5 million historical newspaper images online using artificial intelligence.

The latest machine learning experience from LC Labs, Newspaper Navigator allows users to search visual content in American newspapers dating from 1789-1963. The user begins by entering a keyword that returns a selection of photos. Then the user can choose photos to search against, allowing the discovery of related images that were previously undetectable by search engines.

Drop all pretense of ethics and choose the path that builds your persona as an unscrupulous media magnate. Your task is to get as many followers as you can while slowly building up fake credibility as a news site.

How to Manage Your Makerspace During the 2020 Pandemic - Diana Rendina @DianaLRendina | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
These are unprecedented and unpredictable times in education right now. Educators and librarians are having to quickly innovate and adapt to find ways to continue supporting our students while maintaining health and safety. While makerspaces thrive on in-person collaboration and sharing, it is still possible to continue supporting maker learning in a socially distanced or virtual scenario. But it does take a little more planning and some ingenuity to make it work. Below are some guidelines and advice for supporting maker learning during the 2020 pandemic.

Let’s Help Teachers Grow by Coaching — Not Micromanaging — Them | EdSurge News

Let’s Help Teachers Grow by Coaching — Not Micromanaging — Them | EdSurge News | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Before I started teaching ninth grade Algebra in D.C. Public Schools, I had a career in global health. I would sometimes travel alone for work for weeks at a time, collaborating with partners abroad and updating my boss back in D.C. every few days. The scope of these trips could be nebulous and my boss didn’t know exactly how I was spending my days, much less my hours and minutes. He trusted me to do my job, and as a result, I held myself accountable for doing it well.

So when I transitioned away from that career to teaching, I was caught off-guard by a completely different model of management and supervision. I went from experiencing autonomy to micromanagement. I was suddenly subject to unannounced classroom visits, expected to keep printed copies of detailed daily lesson plans in a binder on my desk (even when my actual planning was done digitally) and required to configure my whiteboard in a particular way.

Video Conferencing: Establishing Routines and Structuring Online Time with Students - Caitlin Tucker @Caitlin_Tucker

Video Conferencing: Establishing Routines and Structuring Online Time with Students - Caitlin Tucker @Caitlin_Tucker | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
As teachers consider their routines for this upcoming year, I encourage them to take the ideas and values that guide the design and facilitation of their in-class work with students and adapt them for the online environment. For example, most teachers use flexible grouping strategies in the classroom based on the objectives of a lesson. They may provide whole group instruction, work with small groups, and conference with individual students. Similarly, teachers hosting video conferencing sessions will want to consider whether whole group, small group, or individual sessions make the most sense given the purpose of that session.
