educreations teacherswithapps Educreations Interactive Whiteboard, by Educreations, Inc, is an incredible, yes that’s right, INCREDIBLE app. This newly released app comes with the huge bonus of being FREE! We think this app has the edge needed to push education in the right direction and to begin modernizing teaching as we know it. Educreations is not the first app using the whiteboard concept, but it is the first one geared specifically for the classroom. Educreations wants to give teachers the opportunity to create what Sal Khan has been doing for years (read our review of Khan Academy). Educreations Inc had the wherewithal to realize the need to add the option to use multiple pages for the same lesson; this is another feature that makes this app a standout. This revised Bloom’s Taxonomy pyramid shows classification of levels of intellectual behavior that is important in the learning process.

Apps for Grading Assessments Using rubrics and providing student's feedback via the iPad has not been an area that has received a great deal of attention. This is, however, starting to change. I have recently spoken to a number of teachers who have developed apps that will allows teachers to use the iPad as a viable way of assessing student work. Some of these apps actually do more than just mark work. Easy Assessment: $1.99 Easy Assessment is the app teachers have been waiting for. Formative Feedback: $1.99 AU This is another great app design by an Australian teacher - Paul Hamilton. Stick Pick: $2.99 AU Stick Pick is the first app of its kind to uniquely link question stems to the cognitive or linguistic needs of each individual learner. Essay Grader: $6.49 AU Provide your students with exceptional feedback, and reduce your grading time with Essay Grader for iPad. ASSIST: FREE Assist lets you administer and collect student results from common, summative, formative and rubrics-based assessments.

Educreations: DIY Whiteboard Video Tutorials on the iPad 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). Educreations hosts the video creations themselves on educreations.com (helpful for schools that block YouTube), and teachers using the site can opt to share videos privately with a set group of students or share them publicly so anyone can see them.

Easy Assessment App Posted on December 18, 2011 by mrrobbo As you will all be aware I have a major interest, some might say obsession with mobile applications. However one thing that has been lacking is an app that could replace/improve the assessment process that I currently use with my students. In order for an app to be a viable replacement, It would need to not only replicate what is possible using more traditional methods, but it should make the once impossible, possible and it should do it in a simple straight forward manner. Well that was my intention behind the development of the Easy Assessment app, which I am happy to say was released on the iTunes store over the weekend. Download Easy Assessment from the iTunes Store Top features within the app include the capacity to sync all assessment data including a spreadsheet of results, videos and photos to your personal Dropbox.com account.

Look Mum – No Cables! iPad2 Mirroring In The Classroom We had a big day last week. A day when long term planning in a school and taking a measured risk paid off. Let me explain… One of the most underrated and significant developments of iOS5 has been the ability to mirror the iPad2 onto any screen via AppleTV. This development signifies a break away from the shackles of cables and allows the iPad, iPod or iPhone to become an even more natural addition to the classroom. Yet our decision to invest in this concept started many months ago, when mirroring was still a rumor. Ringwood North Primary School was allocated a new learning space as part of the ‘Building The Education Revolution’ initiative in 2010. A new area, new teaching team and 138 students on a 1 to 1 iPad program with no projectors or displays. The months that followed proved challenging at times, but allowed us to see the how the students and teachers interacted with a new space without the predefined notion of allocated display spaces.
