Devices: iPad Beautiful bugs inspire creativity in well-rounded app. Devices: iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad Rollicking monster-truck fun, minus the noise. Beautiful glass-breaking game simply mesmerizes. Devices: iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Android Addictive app with familiar gameplay -- and an age mismatch. Great gameplay, but pet theme lures kids too young to play. Editors' pick Busy Shapes mimics a real-world environment for kids to explore but also gives them the safe, appropriately stimulating way to explore the digital world that will be part of their experience. Cute baby versions of TV favorites, but lots of crying. Good card game limits itself unnecessarily with purchases. App Review - TeacherCast. English iPad Apps. Using Multiple iTunes Libraries on One Computer.

Did you know that it's possible to have multiple iTunes libraries, with completely separate content in them, on one computer?

Using Multiple iTunes Libraries on One Computer

While not only a neat lesser-known feature, it also helps you: Keep separate each person's music, movies, and apps on a family computer shared by more than one family memberSync multiple iPods, iPhones, or iPads to a single computer without getting other people's music on your device unintentionally (other options for this include using playlists, using the iPod management screen, and multiple user accounts). This technique works with iTunes 9.2 and higher. Having multiple iTunes libraries is similar to having two separate computers each with iTunes on them. The libraries are completely separate: Music, movies, or apps that you add to one library won't be added to the other unless you copy the files to it. To use multiple iTunes libraries on your computer, you first have to create them. Support - iPad. iPads for Education. Things to Know about Apps & Apple Devices.

Apps in Education. K-5 iPad Apps for Remembering: Part One of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy. (Updated 10/2013) It is Benjamin Bloom's belief that the entry point to learning is the acquisition of knowledge.

K-5 iPad Apps for Remembering: Part One of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy

He postulates that a solid foundation of terms, facts, theories, and skills is the educational base that will allow the mind to evaluate information effectively and inspire innovation. Our schools' emphasis on and devotion to standards-based instruction and high-stakes testing reflects a desire for students to become proficient at memorizing terms, and facts as well as and mastering various sets of skills. Yet, we live in an age of "too much information" where facts are readily available on the mobile devices carried in our pockets. Knowledge is now accessible with just a swift swipe of a finger. Educators sensitive to these changing needs are embracing the cognitive domain of Bloom's Taxonomy as revised by Lorin Anderson and David Krathwohl.
