Apps in Education

Poetry is one of the arts that many students struggle with. I always found that providing a initial successful learning experience was the best way to instil both confidence and foster engagement with my students. Here are a bunch of apps that would allow a student to get their teeth into writing some poetry and for those that struggle an opportunity to see just what they are capable of. Word Mover: FREE Word Mover mobile is used to supplement classroom instruction, reinforce concepts taught in class, and offer increased student engagement. Word Mover allows children and teens to create "found poetry" by choosing from word banks and existing famous works; create a piece of poetry by manipulating the text. https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/word-mover/id572997152?

I had a reasonably extended play with the iPad and I am very impressed. I think it has real potential as an educational tool. It's worth getting a few of my niggles out of the way first before writing about my generally positive reaction to it:A few of the issues I have relate to the way the iPad has to be tied to an iTunes account. I am not sure how this will work with school machines.
If you've got yourself an iPad Air or new iPad mini, you'll want to start downloading the best iPad apps straight away. And if you already have an iPad 4 or older iPad, you might want to update it with some new apps. It's the apps that really set iOS apart from other platforms - there are far more apps available on the App Store for the iPad than any other tablet.

On the screens of millions of iPad and other mobile devices, moons and stars, elements and molecules swirl beneath our fingertips. Developer Mike Howard says he wants to “make you feel like you are actually there in orbit.” Theodore Gray wants you to look at the periodic table and be transported to the world of Harry Potter, feeling as “if you checked out a magical version of The Elements from the Hogwarts library.” Apps represent a shift in how students and the public learn about science. Currently, the best science apps are not being created by museums, traditional publishers, or curriculum developers — They are being created by enthusiastic solo developers, research centers, and new software companies with a penchant for science and public education.

Science Apps for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch While the iPad is capable of enhancing education in myriad ways, one of the major limitations is the inability to run Java ( Flash video is another limitation). Many science simulations are Java based and don't run on the iPad (and most other tablets). While Safari on the iPad can be configured to run Javascript, that is not the same as Java and is not sufficient for most simulations. In this column I try out an app called CloudBrowse which offers a way to run Java and Flash on the iPad. In particular I tried it out for running the PhET science simulations.

The learning that happens here is very organic, it lacks a formulaic approach. iLearn Technology » iPod

Thoughts on the iPad2 in Teaching Thoughts on the iPad2 in Teaching By Shelly Blake-Plock Picked up my own iPad2 about three weeks ago and, as an experiment, I have set my laptop aside and have used nothing but the Apple in the classroom ever since. And I have found that there is nothing that I do in my normal activities as a teacher that I have done with a laptop or a tablet PC that I can not do with the iPad2. Blogging? No problem... BlogPress.
