Burnbook: What parents need to know about the controversial app - 1 views

  •  
    "This app was created to increase cyberbullying. There's no other reason."

    So begins the current top review on iTunes for the controversial Burnbook app. The social networking service has made headlines across the country in recent weeks for bringing anonymous cyberbullying and threats of violence to American high schools.

    The same reviewer goes on to say, "The app has become popular at my school and is specifically targeting a small group of people. I wish I could repeat the evil things that were posted so I could get my point across, but I cannot bring myself to spread those gruesome things even further.""

How to use 'app smashing' for research, building, and collaboration - Daily Genius - 0 views

  •  
    "Having completed the wondrous Romeo and Juliet text for Grade 9, the time had come to investigate the deeper intricacies of Shakespeare's wonderful work! Instead of simply going through the various motifs, themes and symbols inherent within the play, the English Department at Parklands College put a far more intriguing spin on it by App Smashing Blippar, Socrative, and Padlet. These three extremely useful applications enabled teachers to research, collaborate, and build a revision tool in order to intrigue the minds of the learners and get them excited about a typically bland topic."

Who Spewed That Abuse? Anonymous Yik Yak App Isn't Telling - NYTimes.com - 2 views

  •  
    "In much the same way that Facebook swept through the dorm rooms of America's college students a decade ago, Yik Yak is now taking their smartphones by storm. Its enormous popularity on campuses has made it the most frequently downloaded anonymous social app in Apple's App Store, easily surpassing competitors like Whisper and Secret. At times, it has been one of the store's 10 most downloaded apps.

    Like Facebook or Twitter, Yik Yak is a social media network, only without user profiles. It does not sort messages according to friends or followers but by geographic location or, in many cases, by university. Only posts within a 1.5-mile radius appear, making Yik Yak well suited to college campuses. Think of it as a virtual community bulletin board - or maybe a virtual bathroom wall at the student union. It has become the go-to social feed for college students across the country to commiserate about finals, to find a party or to crack a joke about a rival school.

    Much of the chatter is harmless. Some of it is not."

  •  
    "This year, I've spent a good deal of time coaching students and teachers to make learning visible within and beyond their classrooms. This may sound easy, but it isn't. There's a difference between displaying student work and capturing the actual moves that deepened understanding or improved performance. Those who strive to make learning visible appreciate how messy and overwhelming this work can be."

The Art of Classroom App Smashing - 4 views

  •  
    "App Smashing is relatively new (2+/- years) in the world of technology. Device users app smash when one app does not serve all the needs of a project. When that is the case, a person will do parts of a project in one app, parts in another app, and then smash them together to create something that otherwise would have not been possible to create. The art of app smashing is to think outside of the box and make apps work for you. There certainly is no right or wrong way to app smash. Bring out your creativity and imagination and you will be amazed with the digital products that you and your students will be able to create."
