As ever, the list doesn't include games, as they get their own separate post: this week's selection included iOS titles like Letterpress, Pocket Clothier and Arsenal Fantasy Manager 2013. Android apps get their own separate post too, which will be published later in the day.

For me, iMovie is that app. Documentation: Use the camera and microphone to record student work and performances. Peer Feedback: Use video as a great medium to get students to begin to provide each other with feedback.

The Orchestra for iPad Redefines Music Appreciation — iPad App Review By Emily | December 13, 2012 | No comment yet TouchPress’ The Orchestra for iPad aims are encyclopedic. This new iPad-only app from the British developer covers the interments that comprise the orchestra as well as going in-depth to break down scores from well-known pieces. Created in conjunction with London’s Philharmonia Orchestra and its principal conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen, the Orchestra directs the reader’s attention to both individual instruments as well as the symphony orchestra as a whole. The app’s splash screen scrolls through the eight works it includes. Rather than static encyclopedia-style entries, each instrument entry includes a video interview with a member of the Philharmonia, a musical clip that showcases the instrument, as well as the instrument’s range, frequency, size, and its correspondence to the piano range when appropriate or samples of the sounds of the instrument (e.g. snare drum) that do not follow the piano’s scale.

A Free Interactive iPad App To Teach Algebra For many students algebra seems too abstract and hard to learn. They often resort to ineffective memorization and in the long run find only frustration and failure. Now there’s a new free iPad app that can turn frustration into success. The Fun Way to Learn Algebra: Hands-On Equations 1 Lite gives even the youngest students visual and kinesthetic ways to understand abstract algebraic equations. The app is intended for children from age 8 onward. The app, like the physical version, is also well suited for helping older students who are struggling in traditional algebra classes. Each of the three lessons of this free app is introduced by a short three- to four-minute video. In the first lesson the student learns that a pawn, or marker, has an unknown weight, or value, and that a number cube has the value shown on the cube. The “scale” does not actually move. After a short while the student will see that the value of 5 for the pawn will give both sides the same value, namely 13.

How One iPad App Changed An Entire School I have been wanting to write a post for a while about the amazing tool that we came across last year, that has truly changed the way we use iPads in our classrooms, but haven’t had a venue to do so. Now that I have my new website, I decided it was a must! If you aren’t familiar with this groundbreaking Nearpod iPad app , I want to take a minute to share it with you and explain how it changed our school. Nearpod is an App that allows teachers to share presentations; but wait, there’s more! It also lets you be a fully engaged participant and interact with the presentation through polls, quizzes, videos, drawing interactivity, website-sharing, self-guided quizzes and more. Needless to say, it is a presenter’s dream come true. Starting Out With Nearpod I’ll never forget my first experience with Nearpod. At Pine Crest, we differentiate instruction, and the iPad is great for that, but we still also provide whole group instruction. Feedback Becomes Reality
