Recently, I was asked for app recommendations for a one iPad classroom. After compiling several recommendations, I decided this would be a perfect fit for a Symbaloo webmix! I'm sure there are other apps I might add, but these were some of the first that came to mind. One iPad Classroom by The Digital Scoop (Link for regualar Symbaloo users) One iPad Classroom by The Digital Scoop (Link for SymbalooEDU users) I also added a few websites/blogs where I routinely find recommendations for great apps! 70 iPad Apps for Elementary STEM. Update 8/30/2014: Somehow duplicate entries found their way into my app list.
Thanks to a tweet from @kiboser I removed them, so the list now includes 70 apps. I also added 3 paid apps I’m going to purchase via VPP this fall: Green Screen by Do Ink, Do Ink Animation & Drawing, and Stick Around. I may also later add some of these 3D visualization apps. This past summer our school district IT department erased all the iPads used in classrooms like mine to update iOS firmware and install Lightspeed “mobile manager” software to (among other things) track and facilitate app volume purchases.
The process of re-installing and reconfiguring my cart of 19 iPads in my STEM classroom was time consuming, but ultimately beneficial since it allowed me to be more selective in the apps I chose to install and make available for students. On my personal iPhone and iPad, as well as my class iPads, I’m a fan of organizing apps so everything is available in 1 or at the most 2 screens. EdTech Hidden Gems of 2014. At Common Sense Graphite, we get to know the tools we review well.

The iPad is already an education phenomenon, and Apple will be pushing even more education features when iOS 7 launches later this year.

A new flexbooks program will be implemented this fall in math classrooms across a suburban Atlanta school district to keep up with changing state requirements and reduce textbook costs. Henry County Schools is using Edgenuity software on newly purchased iPads in its math classrooms, nicknaming the program “flexbooks” because teachers and administrators will have the flexibility to create customizable math content for each classroom and student, says Assistant Superintendent Aaryn Schmuhl. Parents will also have access to the content online so they can help students with homework.
“We’re not just putting tablets in the hands of the students,” he says. “In this case, administrators and teachers are able to control what applications and resources are on the tablets in each classroom.” “There was a lot missing in the textbooks when it came to meeting the latest standards,” Schmuhl says.

You’re going to want to turn on your printer and fire up a PDF viewer. This is just that good. It’s called the Padagogy Wheel and it offers a fantastically useful perspecitve on how to figure out which iPad apps work with Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy. Created by Allan Carrington , this thing is a monster and deserves some focused attention. So I’d make a personal plea to save the hi-res image (below) or print out the PDF ( available here ) and then spend your long weekend closely examining this thing.
The Padagogy Wheel takes an expanded approach Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy and offers 62 iPad apps that fit into the organized chaos that is Bloom’s.

Our preK-12 district is rolling out iPads this fall to support a SPED program, and so one of my objectives for attending the ISTE2010 Conference in Denver was to identify the latest SPED apps for these devices to use in our program. My research included discussions with Meg Ormiston, who let me know about the TCEA i*apps Spreadsheet (which appeared to be missing a SPED column), Camilla Galiolo who showed me apps she used in a recent pilot for autistic students, and Cindy Peters who gave me detailed info on which apps she uses in her work with special needs kids. In lieu of a more specific i*app resource for special needs, both Camilla and Cindy recommended use of typical age-appropriate iPad educational applications which are geared toward the desired cognitive level.
I need to do more extensive research on the subject, but at this time there does not seem to be widespread knowledge about the use of i*app resources for special needs. iBooks - Free awesome reading app. Receptive by Class. Apps for Teachers. Resources for Teachers. The demands made on teachers are ever increasing. Schools are much more than academic institutions now, and teachers are much more than 'passers on' of content knowledge. Teachers are called on to be careers advisors, relationship counsellors, tour guides, life coaches and much more! In this climate, it's important that teachers use the little time they have as effectively as possible. Let's face it, no one wants to be entering data twice, or doing things that aren't necessary.
Every minute spent dealing with administrivia is a minute that your not spending preparing lessons, or providing feedback - or relaxing!

Cogs of the Cognitive Processes I began to think about the triangular shape of Bloom's Taxonomy and realized I thought of it a bit differently.Since the cognitive processes are meant to be used when necessary, and any learner goes in and out of the each level as they acquire new content and turn it into knowledge, I created a different type of image that showcased my thoughts about Bloom's more meaningfully.Here is my visual which showcases the interlocking nature of the cognitive processes or, simply, the "Cogs of the Cognitive Processes".
