'Wonders of the Universe' Lets You Explore Space On Your iPad 'Wonders of the Universe' Lets You Explore Space On Your iPad HarperCollins released a new iPad app Thursday that will set you off on a 3D exploration through space using high-resolution visuals specifically optimized for the new iPad's Retina display. Called Wonders of the Universe, the iPad application incorporates 210 full-color articles, hundreds of photos and two and a half hours of video from Brian Cox’s award-winning series of the same name into a single space discovery app. Matt Walton, Digital Product Consultant for Harper Collins told Mashable, “Wonders is the first iPad application to make use of two innovative technologies developed by the OTHER media: a 3D rendering engine used to create a truly amazing interface and a revolutionary publishing platform that provides a new reading experience for tablet and mobile: Glide Publisher." With Glide, navigating through the app and reading the articles is different from what you might be accustomed to –- in a good way. The $6.99 app is available now from the App Store.

Excellent Chart Featuring Useful Web Tools for The Under 13s Several of the web tools available online have restriction for the under 13 years old. This is really frustrating because students in primary schools are therefore restricted from using digital media in their learning. There are, however, a select few of web platforms that support this age category and provides access to the under 13 but still some of these tools require parental permission. Mark from Mr G Online has done a wonderful work by compiling a variety of web tools that are kids friendly. He divided them int 3 categories those that are available for free for the under 13s, those available for this same age category but are paid and another section for web tools restricted to 13 and over. I invite you to read the original article of Mark from which this chart is taken. Excellent Chart Featuring Useful Web Tools for The Under 13s

Students create a truly outstanding amount of work over the course of a year. Back when everything was done on paper, most of that work was either thrown in the trash, stuffed in a drawer somewhere, or stuck in a box in the garage. How many essays, stories, you labor over during your years as a student that you’ll never see again? Now that so much of what students create in school (and in life) is in the digital realm, teachers have an opportunity to help students value their work more and for longer. Digital portfolios allow students to collect the work they’re most proud of and see their progress over time in a tangible way. More than that, they encourage students to take more ownership over their work. That’s especially true if you encourage students to make their digital portfolios more broadly about themselves and their interests rather than solely about their schoolwork.

Over the last decade or so, Interactive White Boards (IWBs) have proliferated in schools in the U.S. and across much of the world. Some teachers have embraced them, and others, well … not so much. Unfortunately, some schools did not offer the professional development necessary to help teachers become familiar with these systems and get the most out of their availability. Many teachers were left to their own devices to learn and use their IWBs. In this blog entry on edweek.org, a few specialists stated their views on the topic. Image Source: In this article, we offer a number of creative approaches to using Interactive White Boards.
