An absolute gem of an article by John Brandon and Graham Barlow from MacLife on 30th March over at TechRadar . This is going to become my iPad manual from here on in. Customised iPads for all
Using Blooms Taxonomy in education is a highly effective way to scaffold learning for the students. With the recent popularity and pervasive nature of iOS devices in school districts it is essential for educators to understand how to implement Blooms in the classroom using the apps that are available. While this list is by no means fully comprehensive, it will assist educators in getting started when implementing iOS devices in the classroom. This site will change almost daily as it will be updated with new and exciting apps! If you find any that you have worked with in your classroom please email firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet @bloomsapps or @dmileham75 with your suggestions.
The new app from Educreations is available in the Apple App Store today ( iTunes link ). The app is designed to make it easy to create, narrate, and record whiteboard video tutorials on the iPad and to share them with others. A Web version of the startup's whiteboard app has been available for some time now, but it's the native app for an iPad that makes this sort of tool make sense -- it's so much easier to write on a whiteboard with the finger than it is with a mouse, if nothing else. Educreations is hardly the only app like this available for the iPad (I covered the very similar app ShowMe over on MindShift this summer, for example). But while Educreations' iPad app might be late to the whiteboard app market, its entry is a solid one.
