How to start using Apple TV in the classroom - Daily Genius - 0 views

  •  
    "The big push for education technology is coming from a handful of sources. There's the teachers, the administrators, the students, and the technology producers. Technology is not the final solution to improving education, though. Far from it.

    Education technology is a powerful tool in a teacher's toolkit to create effective learning opportunities. It's just a tool - not the entire toolkit. This seems to be the general consensus now that edtech is becoming more ubiquitous and attainable for many schools in developed countries. Sadly, it's still far out of reach for many developing countries."

IKEA Channels Apple in a Hilarious Ad for Its New Catalog 'Bookbook' | TIME - 0 views

  •  
    "There's a reason the items you see in an IKEA catalog look so ridiculously appealing - it's because the Swedish furniture chain uses 3D rendering technology to create digital models of the products.

    To play on the fact that browsing an IKEA catalog is a sort of holistic sensory experience, the company has created this clever new ad, which skewers Apple's notoriously over-the-top product commercials. The result is hilarious, and the jokes really just write themselves."

Apple and accessibility: Helping students with dyslexia | iMore - 1 views

  •  
    "Can you imagine not being able to read printed words? What would your life be like if books, newspapers, websites, email, and even signs were all virtually incomprehensible to you? How would you get through the day? For up to one in five people like me with dyslexia these are not hypothetical questions, they are our reality. Yet, thanks to accessibility technologies built into Apple's iPhone, iPad, and Mac, it's a reality that can be challenged.
    Dyslexia makes reading a simple paragraph, let alone textbooks, a tedious and frustrating process. Spelling and written expression can also be very difficult. ( (Despite this, dyslexia does not impact intellectual ability. It doesn't cause people to read backwards or see words upside down. It does, however, make figuring out what sounds go with which letters difficult. Deciphering unfamiliar words on a page can be extremely difficult, if not impossible. ((So what do people who have dyslexia do when they encounter printed text? Some simply avoid it or give up. Others find methods to help them succeed."

Moving at the Speed of Creativity | Lessons Learned Publishing to Lulu, Amazon and the ... - 2 views

  •  
    "Back in April, my 10 year old daughter (Rachel) shared a Google Document with me which was her fourth completed book, and her longest finished chapter book to date. She titled it, "Mature Little Me." Inspired by Chris Simon, the STEM teacher at Independence Elementary School in Yukon, Oklahoma, from 2011-2013, it's a fourth grade adventure story with some invention/maker flavor. Back in April I didn't set aside the time needed to help with some edits and get it published online for Rachel, both as an eBook and a print-on-demand book via Lulu.com. This evening I spent about 3 hours editing and publishing her book, and learned a BUNCH as a result. I'll attempt to document much of that learning in this post."

Apple's Official Guide To Teaching With Apps - 3 views

  •  
    "This may be news to you (it was to us), but Apple has a guide for teaching with apps.

    Called "Using iOS Apps for Teaching & Learning," it's 8 pages long and really, honestly isn't as self-embracing and superificial as you'd expect. Of course, it's only 8 pages and acts more as an overview than the book, PD, and years of experience it actually requires to get it just right.

    But it does hit some high notes, encouraging teachers to consider 5 factors that actually work pretty well as a checklist when choosing the next app for your classroom."

Apple - Teach with iPad - Romeo and Juliet - 0 views

  •  
    "Reiff introduces his students to the language of the play by reading it together as a class, working through several close reading activities that help students start to decode Shakespeare's lines. By beginning with the play's unfamiliar and sometimes difficult language, the class has a shared starting point for the journey they are about to undertake - experiencing, interpreting, and performing Romeo and Juliet, and truly engaging with the play."
