LearningToday shares with everyone two beautiful posters, that help us remember Bloom’s Taxonomy: the Blooming Butterfly and the Blooming Orange . How do we connect the Bloom’s Taxonomy with the iPad? Following in Dave Mileham and Kelly Tenkeley’s footsteps of assigning iPad apps to the different levels of the Bloom’s Taxonomy, I created the following table with apps that I have tested out and am recommending.
Some time ago I posted about iPadio a web service that for years has been a key part of my students’ toolkit. iPadio allows a student to record a podcast (aka “phonecast” or “phlog”) directly to the internet, for free, from an ordinary landline or mobile telephone. In my experience this is a really easy, no-fuss way to get students to publish their learning orally, anywhere, anytime they have a phone at their disposal. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>

Insert and Annotate Video The ability to insert a video, live or existing, has probably been the most requested feature we have received since EE was first released. It's also been one of the most challenging things to pull off in a way that makes sense.
Storytelling continues to be a powerful tool in education. Storytelling from a teacher's point of view allows us an insight into the depth of understanding our student have around certain concepts and ideas. It also gives us a privileged view into the world of the kids in our care.
ScoreCleaner Notes Straight from musical idea to music notation – wherever you are! We think that the process of going from a musical idea to having it scored, notated, should be as short as possible – wherever you are .
Quite a while ago we did an article on Pages for the iPad and now we’re going to be taking a look at another program from the iWork suite — Keynote . Making high quality presentations are now a large part of many people’s lives, be it for work or school, and most of us will have had some experience that has required us to create and deliver a presentation. As a fan of Keynote on the Mac, I was eager to try out Keynote for the iPad and needless to say, it doesn’t disappoint. Read on for a more in-depth look at Keynote for iPad. Getting Started As with all iPad apps, downloading from the App Store is simple (Keynote costs $9.99, by the way), and within seconds you’ll have the app waiting for you on your home screen.
iPads have exploded throughout schools and classrooms. Their flexibility, versatility, and mobility make them a phenomenal learning tool. As teachers seek ways to integrate these devices, we recommend focusing on specific learning goals that promote critical-thinking, creativity, collaboration, and the creation of student-centric learning environments.

My students love using their iPads in the classroom! iPads in the classroom provide student with the opportunity not to be restricted to the traditional way of learning. As a teacher, it is a wonderful feeling to see students being engaged and interacting in their learning.
Posted by Galia Sivan on 08/18/2012 in Graphics , Tools , Web Design | ∞ People with smartphones have a hard time remembering their lives before they could answer an email at 2 a.m, in a party, without breaking a sweat. The same can be said for those who have grown to cherish their tablets: They quickly find that not only does it change their leisure hours, but it can also facilitate their working hours.
In a previous post, Evaluating Apps with Transformative Use of the iPad in Mind , I describe my ambivalence about teacher asking my for the “perfect” app to teach this or that. I have teachers ask me frequently about app recommendations for different subject areas. “What app could I use to teach subtraction?” “What app would you recommend for my students to practice writing?” “I want to use iPads in my Science class. What app is good for that?”

Let’s talk about how you could be using Note Links.

My students use their iPads as creators every day, whether they are recording their thoughts, using virtual tools or publishing authentic assessments. Content can be both created and consumed using an iPad, and my students take on both roles. There are abundant resources for content consumption , and these apps can be used to teach current events. Many schools are increasing their use of informational and multimedia texts in order to align their instruction to the Common Core Learning Standards . It's important to acknowledge that current events are more than just articles in a newspaper. There are a variety of free iPad apps that students and teachers can use to access high-interest texts and video clips that will connect your classroom to the world.
