IPOD SANS ITUNES - Gérer iPod iPhone sans iTunes Educreations For Assessment Once again I am amazed at how well students can perform on a homework assessment, but when asked to explain the process for solving a problem, they struggle. The Situation: WHAT THE STUDENTS WERE INSTRUCTED TO CREATE We finally found something that will work for us. We created an account that all students can use to upload their content. We now have all of our student Educreations located in one area on the web. This really opens some doors for us as we have tried to enhance student's understanding of apps that we previously used. Five Best Tablet Drawing Apps It seems to impress passers buy when you edit video with your fingers in iMovie on the iPad. It still impresses people when I edit photos on an iPad. I'm not so much out to impress people with what I'm doing, but what the end result may be. Though I do agree that it was skewed away from windows tablets. these were user submitted and voted choices. next time speak up louder during the initial submissions and you'll see your preference listed here. oh, and the windows tablet digitizers are NOT more accurate then the cintiq, not even close. they are built by wacom but only have: 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity no tilt/rotation detection 2540 lines per inch detection resolution no tip/pen type detection the cintiq has: 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity tilt and rotation detection 5080 lines per inch detection resolution tip/pen type detection the Intuos is even better, but has no display on the digitizer so it is a different beat altogether.

Introducing School-Wide Digital Citizenship Practices with iPads An elementary school in our district recently got 30 iPads and asked for some advice implementing them with students and teachers. In addition to suggesting some starter apps, I recommended that we have conversations with kids around the appropriate use of these devices. While almost every child has used an iPad, iPod Touch, or iPhone, the exciting learning opportunities these mobile, Internet-connected, media creation devices create also open the door to new challenges. Cyberbullying or inappropriate web publishing happens more through the camera than regular computer use does; the mobility of the device combined with the reality that multiple users are using the device with no personalized, password-protected, network-tracked accounts makes it more challenging to keep track of who is doing what with the device or that the device itself is safe. Rather than tell the students how they should and should not use iPads, I felt compelled to involve the students in the conversation.

Transferring your iTunes Library For most users, iTunes does a great job of handling all of the details of managing your media library for you, allowing you to manage your content through iTunes itself and not having to worry too much about the underlying files and folders that make up your iTunes library. Unfortunately, this user-friendly approach has one serious limitation: When it comes time to move your iTunes library, it can often be a bit of a challenge to figure out exactly what pieces you need to move and how to go about doing this. Many iTunes users start out with a basic iTunes library and use the default settings to store all of their media content on their primary internal hard drive. However, as you add new content over time, particularly with the additional video content now supported by iTunes, you may soon find that your library threatens to take over your computer. Another common scenario many users find themselves in is what to do when they upgrade to a new computer. How iTunes Manages Media Content

Flipboard Flipboard is great for Google Reader! 14 Ways To Store And Share Files On The iPad iPads are neat little devices that can pretty much do it all: play music, support interactive content, reshape how we think of textbooks, produce high-quality videos, and even take a step back and function as a good old-fashioned typewriter. The iPad does, however, have its share of flaws ranging from those hardware related (proprietary connections that work with Apple and only Apple products), to software (if you want an iPad, you must go through iTunes). And one of the educators’ biggest gripes with the iPad is its lack of storage space. While PCs and laptops are now measuring their size in terabytes, and Android tablets play nicely with PCs–offering drag-n-drop support and USB integration, among other supporting features, iPads have an uphill battle here. And worse, they come in flavors (e.g., 16-64 GB) that are now rivaled or surpassed by your average thumb drive. Identify Your Needs There are a variety of explanations here for why Apple knowingly went for such small storage spaces.
