7 easy, powerful ways to use iPad cameras in the classroom - Let's Teach With Tech - 5 views

  •  
    "Our school is a 1:1 iPad school. We made the decision to go with iPads knowing that there are relative strengths and weaknesses of the device. For our purposes, it was decided that the strengths outweighed the weaknesses.
    One strength that factored heavily into the discussion was the camera, and putting the power to create multimedia work in the hands of every student.
    Here are 7 ways the camera can be leveraged for deeper learning in your class."

How to use Osmo in the Classroom - Daily Genius - 1 views

  •  
    "Today the field of educational technology is literally bombarded with new ideas and devices that promise to revolutionize the way we teach. Some of these newcomers have strong potential and promise a unique learning experience. One such product is Osmo. Osmo is an innovative device that transforms an iPad into an interactive classroom accessory able to add a level of excitement that engages students in the learning process.

    Osmo is made of a vertical base for the iPad, and a reflective mirror that sits in front of the camera. These two unassuming accessories work together to change the physical space in front of the iPad into an area of active engagement that interact with a number of iPad apps made for Osmo."

Classroom Coding With Tickle for iPad - Digital Learning at Grant Wood AEA - 2 views

  •  
    "When you find something cool that Adam Bellow likes, the chances are high that you will like it too! For me, this truism manifested itself recently in the form of a tweet Adam sent declaring his love for the recently released Tickle app for iOS. Tickle is a free coding app for the iPad that lets students create programs to control Spheros, Air Parrot Drones, and even Philips Hue Lights. Intrigued? I thought you might be! Here's what you need to know.

    Tickle started as a Kickstarter campaign, and uses block coding elements that were inspired by the likes of Scratch, Tynker, Blockly and Hopscotch. The simple coding interface is accessible enough to be used with early elementary students, but it has enough potential to challenge middle school students and beyond. Programs can be written and tested in the app without connecting to any other devices, but connecting to a Sphero or an Air Parrot Mini Drone is where the real fun begins."

Applying iPad Apps in the Classroom: Goal? Language Proficiency! | The FLTmag - 1 views

  •  
    "With the growing interest in using iPads for teaching, the inclusion of technology as part of the 21st century skills, and the availability of iPads in classrooms, it becomes more and more important to create language lessons that make effective use of the device. Often teachers and learners alike are overwhelmed by the new technology and the wealth of apps that are available. When searching the Apple Store, for example, several language learning apps focus on grammar, vocabulary drills, and games in a variety of languages. However, it is not the objective of this article to highlight apps for grammar and verb drills. Instead, it is the goal of this article to present a sample of free-of-charge apps that were not necessarily created for language instruction but that can be used in a creative way to encourage critical thinking, enhance language proficiency, and integrate into existing curricula and lessons.

    WHY USE TECHNOLOGY IN TEACHING?"

3 EdTech Tools for the One iPad Classroom - Daily Genius - 0 views

  •  
    "iPads are amazing learning instruments that can improve instruction and student engagement dramatically. Those of us privileged enough to work in 1:1 iPad classrooms can attest to that. But lets be realistic: most classrooms around the world do not have access to the funds and resources necessary to equip a full classroom with iPads for each student. There are numerous teachers who have access to only one iPad at school, or they just own an iPad and think it would be a great idea to be able to use in the classroom. Luckily, there are several EdTech tools teachers can use in the One iPad Classroom in order to create lessons that are exciting, and provide unique educational experiences for all students."

Blogging in a Primary Classroom-With Only One iPad! - 1 views

  •  
    "Many primary teachers who only have access to one iPad in their classroom assume that there is very little they can do to make that iPad useful for an entire class.  A few weeks ago, I blogged about the way I would do the "listen to reading" option of the Daily Five in a one iPad classroom. Today, I want to share some options for blogging with only one iPad."

10 Terrific Ways to Use One iPad or iPhone in the Classroom | Scholastic.com - 1 views

  •  
    "If you have only one iPad, use Apple's VGA adapter ($29) to connect your iPad to a smartboard. No smartboard? Grab an LCD projector, VGA adapter, and speakers, if you wish, for your iPad, then check out the simple how-to video below. If you have just one smartphone, pop your phone under a document camera. You can also use an adapter to project the smartphone; however, not all apps will function properly. (Unless a class is using Apple's presentation software, Keynote, I use a document camera to display my smartphone.) Use your single iPad or smartphone to blast content onto the big screen and let kids work together for an engaging mini-lesson. Then have students use the single device when working in small groups, as a reward, or during center time."

Common Core in Action: Manipulating Shapes in the Elementary Math Classroom | Edutopia - 0 views

  •  
    "As a former elementary school teacher in a 1:1 iPad classroom, I know how powerful iPads can be as learning tools in the hands of students. This mobile device is so much more than a content consumption tool, because students can use an iPad for hands-on learning. They can move items across the screen, write about a topic, and document their learning using audio and visual tools."

    "If you are planning to incorporate iPad in your classroom teaching then you definitely need to work on some preliminary stuff before anything else. These are basically formalities and conventions students need to abide by when using iPad in class. Making students explicitly aware of their responsibilities behind using iPad in class will certainly help you tap into the full educational potential of this versatile gadget. I have gone through my archive and picked out these handy visuals for you to use with your students."

    "The camera is one of those apps on the iPad that we sometimes take for granted. We forget it is there or don't always use it to its full potential in the classroom. This week I am presenting at iPadU: Slide to Unlock Learning, and I wanted to highlight some of the many ways that you could use the iPad camera, so I put some ideas together and added some I had seen on the web or learned from others. The result? iPadography: Photo Projects for the iPad Classroom.

    So, if you are looking for ideas for using the iPad camera in the classroom, take a look at some of the slides below, and feel free to share it with others who might be interested!"

26 iPad Apps For A Paperless Classroom - 0 views

  •  
    "The paperless classroom is a compelling concept for what it symbolizes as much as anything else.

    While it sounds sleek and futuristic and easy to organize and environmentally friendly, the reality is that paperless classrooms aren't that simple. The "environmentally-friendly" part, for example, is wildly subjective: the costs of manufacturing-and eventually recycling and disposing of-tablets versus the loss of "renewable" trees and the subsequent waste that is environmentally-friendly."

10 tasks every iPad classroom should be able to do | History Tech - 0 views

  •  
    "The Educational and Mobile Learning site highlighted a great step by step iPad task tutorial by the folks over at iSupport. They outline five tasks that "every modern teacher" should be able to do and use in their classrooms.

    It's a great list:

    A PDF
    A presentation
    An interactive book
    A podcast
    A movie

    I really like how they put together an easy way to see how using iPad tools can lead kids through low level to high levels of thinking and doing.

    But the list isn't comprehensive. And it might start past the point where some teachers are right now.

    So I've added five extra iPad basic skills that I think every teacher using iPads needs to have:
