13 Free iPad Spelling Apps to Easily Teach Kids to Spell Correctly I don't know if you share the same view or not but many people say that using technology, word editors and other online writing platforms that provide automatic spelling correction weakens our spelling skills and increases the chances of making spelling mistakes once using a paper and pen more than ever before. Well at least from my own experience as a blogger and having to always write three articles per day I do depend a lot on auto-correction and still I would get emails from people saying there are some typing ( not spelling ) mistakes in my posts ( I am sorry about this but my time constraints do not permit me to scrutinize every word I type in and I am sure you understand it ). Just to make things clear , typing mistakes are different from spelling mistakes, the latter are linguistic kind of errors and are consciously done . They are mostly attributed to a lack of proficiency in the writing skill but the earlier are unconscious and are due to mistyping.
Over the past year, Mr Andrews Online have worked extensively with Bellfield Primary School, sharing methods on how the planned use of mobile technology can have a sustained impact on standards across the curriculum. James, a Year 5 teacher at the school illustrates how through the effective use of technology in his classroom he was able to give his pupils ownership of their learning and the opportunity to learn independently, subsequently raising standards in his class. Having had the same class for the last two years, I have been able to develop the children's ICT skills across a range of iPad apps. Along with working with myself, both David and Chris have also worked with my class on several occasions which has given them a good understanding of a range of apps. As a result I felt it was time to allow the children to begin to choose how they wanted to present their learning, instead of instructing them on a particular app I wanted them to use.

The transition to the more extensive use of technology in classrooms across the West has resulted in the integration of bring your own device (BYOD) schemes, equipping students with netbooks and tablet computers, and lessons that use social media & online services. Gesture-based technology is on the rise; according to the latest NMC Horizon Report, gesture-based technological models will become more readily integrated as a method of learning within the next few years. The iPhone, iPad, Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Xbox 360 Kinect technology are examples of these kinds of developments, and in particular, resources for Apple products in education are becoming widely available online. For teachers, some of which are just beginning to use tablets and mobile devices in class, these resources can be invaluable in promoting more interactive classrooms and understanding how best to use and control such products.
