I'm a huge fan of Evernote . I use it to take notes, clip web articles and get organized. I recently found out about Springpad, which is similar to Evernote, but with some differences. Springpad is free, and is available via web app and for iPhone, iPad, and Android.
Screencasting is the process of capturing the screen interactions on your computer - usually along with an audio narrative. It's been a very effective method for creating screen based tutorials on computer for a number of years. With the advent of screencasting apps on the iPad, screencasting has now become a great option for the creation of multimedia student presentations. It can be used for any number of student projects such as illustrating and explaining the solution to a problem in mathematics, creating tutorials for apps, commenting and annotating an essay, document or article, and more.

It just plain makes sense that students who dig incorporating technology into their academic pursuits would likely make mobile computing via tablets and smartphones an integral life component. Taking advantage of everything these applications have to offer streamlines the largely autonomous process behind enrolling in an online course.

Source : Online College Courses Dropbox : With one Dropbox account, students enjoy access to their files while on the go, so they never accidentally miss a deadline again … because of computer issues, anyway. Bento : Available on iDevices (because of course), Bento makes organizing solo and group projects much, much easier by providing users with their own personal databases for storing contacts, drawing up calendars, and taking notes.
«C'è qualche evidenza scientifica», si chiede Margaret Rock su Mashable, «sul fatto che portare i tablet nelle scuole dia dei benefici all'apprendimento?» Il tema è apparentemente lontano dalla nostra realtà quotidiana, in Italia e in buona parte d'Europa. Ma ci stiamo avvicinando a grandi passi alla necessità di affrontarlo. Già il decreto sviluppo prevede che «i libri scolastici, dal 2014-15 saranno scaricabili direttamente dal web». E si accenna alla possibilità di seguire le lezioni via Internet.

I recently received an email from a school administrator that is eager to bring iPads into his school but is also extremely concerned that it could grant students easy access to inappropriate material. It all depends on what you want to secure and how secure you need it to be. 1. You don't give iPads any access to your internal network. They get internet access only. 2.
I am conducting a series of workshops in Florida and was asked to share a rubric to help teachers evaluate educational apps as part of the workshop. In 2010 Harry Walker developed a rubric , and I used his rubric (with some modifications by Kathy Schrock) as the basis for mine. (Read Harry Walker's paper Evaluating the Effectiveness of Apps for Mobile Devices. ) I kept in mind that some apps are used to practice a discrete skill or present information just one time.
Overview The built-in video camera app on the iPhone and iPod touch are great. There are some benefits other apps can provide. This AppGuide will focus on showcasing the best apps for capturing video on your iDevice.

Interactive and collaborative - Whiteboards are a great way for teachers to explain concepts to their students. With the ability of some iPad apps to record, you ensure that students who did not develop understanding of the concept the first time have the opportunity to watch and listen again and again. Working in small groups or brainstorming as a class, collaborative whiteboards are a great way to share ideas. Work in the same room, on the same network or even from different parts of the country. No matter what you are working on these interactive whiteboards are a great way to document or record your thinking process.
