Three great apps for use in human biology lessons - Learning Inspired - 0 views

  •  
    "Whether it is teaching Primary School pupils the basic skeleton or asking secondary school pupils to the inner workings of a vital organ human anatomy is a key component to the school curriculum.  it was an area of science I always enjoyed when I was at school.  However there were some classmates who were not so keen especially when our science teacher brought in lamb hearts for dissection.

My Top Five Educational Augmented Reality Apps - Learning Inspired - 0 views

  •  
    "Augmented Reality is a hugely engaging phenomenon that has never been more accessible. Explaining what Augmented Reality is, is a bit like trying to describe the difference between a 3D shape and a 2D shape. Seeing it and using it will give you a much better understanding of what it is. Essentially, augmented reality creates a three dimensional animation that can be viewed through the iPad's camera. This creates the effect of the animation being a physical structure in the room with you that you can interact with through an app. Again, to show is much easier than to describe, and so this blog will do just that.

    Before I dive in to my personal favourites, I feel that it is important to highlight the educational implications of augmented reality apps. Yes, the ability to use this kind of technology is impressive and engaging, but what does it bring to teaching and learning? Well, there are a number of ways that it can help to spur on creativity, story writing, research, computing skills and so on. I will explain each app's potential and educational impact as we go along…"

Teacher Recommended: 50 Favorite Classroom Apps | MindShift | KQED News - 4 views

  •  
    "The list of apps that educators favor this year shares some commonalities with last year's favorites. Teachers tend to drop apps if they become too expensive or sometimes if the updates are so overwhelming that they no longer know how to use the product. Luhtala explained it's a delicate balance: "If it doesn't feel different than it did a year ago, that's alarming. It should feel the same, but better.""

10 New Ideas for Creating Literacy Centers - Daily Genius - 3 views

  •  
    "Several summers ago, I wrote 10 Ideas for Creating Literacy Centers in response to a request from a Summer Workshop participant. Over the past few weeks, this post has been re-circulated on Social Media, so I decided that it needed an update.

    My original post was inspired by Suzy Brooks' use of her SMART Board as a learning center. For this update, I would like to credit the fantastic work of Kristen Wideen and Meghan Zigmond. While many of the concepts from the original post are certainly still applicable, here are 10 new ideas for creating learning centers."

4 Great Augmented Reality Apps for teaching Science | The Whiteboard Blog - 1 views

  •  
    "Augmented Reality is the term used by apps which overlay content on top of real world objects. Imagine viewing a textbook page through your iPad and the pictures come to life with sound and animations.
    This can have some great educational uses. From bringing spacecraft or animals into the classroom, to bringing worksheets to life with interactive 3D models.
    The tech is still in its infancy. At the moment you still need to view things through some kind of device - a tablet, phone or webcam. Can you imagine what this would be like when viewed through something like Google Glass? But that's something for the future.
    There's many different apps out there, but here are a few of my favourites that could be used to teach Science."

  •  
    "Do you want to be an astronaut? You'll need strong math skills. How about a scientist? An engineer? An accountant? A meteorologist? All of these careers - and a lot more - will require you to have an excellent mathematical ability.

    Jobs that are in some way linked to math typically pay more, are better for your brain, and have fewer potential applicants.

    There's just one problem: for the vast majority of children at school and students at university, math is a) very hard, and b) very boring.

    So, what to do? Fear not! Android to the rescue! Here are some of the best free Android math apps (Android math games exist too!) to help you survive math class."
