According to Bellow, students can share these stories with, at the very least, their peers, but also with friends and family and on social networks, “So there’s a real audience out there who can find their stories as well.” 1. 2. 3.

10 Must Have iPad Apps for Students and Teachers Everyone knows that to succeed in education you need all the help you can get, and what better way to find that help than through the electronic device of the decade, Apple's iPad. For those of you living in a cave, the iPad is a small tablet computer, 9.56 inches x 7.47 inches x 0.5 inches, which is poised to be the device that changes it all. And, while the reviews of the iPad have been mixed so far, there is no doubt that it has the potential to become one of the greatest assets to education that there has been since Gutenberg's invention of the printing press. With fame such as this, it is no surprise that everyday brings more and more apps that are being created to help students successfully achieve their educational goals, further setting the iPad on a path to take over a number of functions in the world of education, including the book, the video player, and who knows even the teachers.

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.

SoundNote - Take notes on your iPad Childrens Music Portal : Best Artists, Best Prices, Best Resources Free Printables Dreamlines Dreamlines was an interactive net-art work created in 2005.

It could be recreated with current web technologies, but until I get round to doing that, I decided to take it down to avoid frustration for visitors who might still come here. While you can’t have the first-hand experience at the moment, you can look at some documentation to get an idea of what was it like. You can see: The original description of the work Some screen captures on Flickr Video captures of different search strings on Vimeo: plum, raspberry, vacation A more documentary video uploaded by Tomás Rawski that shows the user interaction with the work You can also download the original source code [ZIP] (beware, it was made with Processing 1.0 and it is not going to run without significant updates).
