Vad kan man göra mer med AirServer? | Gästbloggen När jag började använda Airserver höll jag i en presentation över hur jag tänkte att man skulle kunna använda airserver tillsammans med projektorn i undervisningen, dessa appar använde jag som inspiration till kollegor: Explain everything: Utmärkt som whiteboard, man kan lägga in en webbläsare som man kan ha aktiv eller rita på. Finns flera alternativ till denna såklart som Show me eller Educreation, men det är nog mer en smaksak eller tillfälle som avgör vilken man vill använda. Google Drive: Använder google apps på jobbet, så uppgiften kan ges där/bygga upp i introduktionen och sen dela dokumentet med eleverna. TeachersPick: SlumpApp. Man skriver in gruppens namn, som slumpar elev eller elever med valda direktiv. Moji Klocka: Jobba med klockan tillsammans, skicka runt iPaden i klassrummet för att diskutera och hjälpas åt att ställa in klockan rätt. Elementary school math: Bara för att påvisa att man använda matteappar till gruppdiskussion. Probability tools: Sannolikhet!

Using iPad Screencasting for Feedback and Assessment Screencasting is the process of capturing the screen interactions on your computer - usually along with an audio narrative. It's been a very effective method for creating screen based tutorials on computer for a number of years. With the advent of screencasting apps on the iPad, screencasting has now become a great option for the creation of multimedia student presentations. It can be used for any number of student projects such as illustrating and explaining the solution to a problem in mathematics, creating tutorials for apps, commenting and annotating an essay, document or article, and more. Explain Everything supports a wide range of content for creating screencasts Explain Everything There are few screencasting apps that have the tools and flexibility of the Explain Everything app. If however we assume that interactivity and communication are important objectives of the modern classroom, then there's one feature however that's particularly interesting.

10 best iPad art apps for painting and sketching | iPad When the iPad first launched it was pegged squarely as a media consumption device. To create professional art and design, you'd still need a fully-fledged laptop or desktop system running a full-fat operating system like Mac OS or Windows, complete with top photo editing software. Making art on the iPad was a crazy idea. Right? Wrong. The best iPad apps for creating digital art selected for this list prove that Apple's tablet has moved beyond just being for media consumption and is fast becoming ripe for content creation. 01. The sequel to the popular Zen Brush takes what its predecessor does best - emulating the feel of painting with traditional Japanese calligraphy brushes - and builds upon it, with a new drawing engine that's smoother and more fluent than before, making it even easier to lose yourself in the process of creating beautiful Zen art. 02. If you need a full-fat iPad alternative to Photoshop, Pixelmator is about as good as it gets. 03. 04. 05. 06. 07. 08. 09. 10. 11. 12.

Airserver! –  Hur har jag klarat mig utan alla dessa år? | Gästbloggen Efter sommaren 2012 började jag ett nytt jobb på Vittra Telefonplan som matematiklärare för år 4-6. Skolan har en tydlig IT-inriktning då eleverna har en varsin dator från år 4. Med tillgång till dator, iPad och projektor kan man ju inte låta bli testa olika IKT-verktyg för att se hur detta påverkar eleverna och hur man kan nå det omdefinierade lärandet. Jag är ett iPad-fan av rang, inte för att själva iPaden i sig är ett grymt verktyg, utan för att jag som pedagog kan tänka till hur jag på bästa sätt kan använda mig utav nya arbetssätt med hjälp av den. Jag hade hört talas om Appletv, men aldrig satt mig in i hur den fungerade. I min jakt på information ramlade jag över ett program som genast blev väldigt intressant: Airserver! Vad har jag gjort i klassrummet idag med Airserver som jag inte kunde göra tidigare? Framförallt använder jag den som en liten whiteboard i klassrummet för att inte vara låst framme vid den stora whiteboardtavlan.

Creative ICT: Downloading YouTube videos to mac/ iPad Since Apple have put a stop to downloading YouTube videos to iPad using the iCab Mobile app Ive started to use this workaround. In my lessons we use YouTube videos as much as possible for making the news, voice-overs for adverts, weather forecasting, exploration, science transcripts and much more. Great for speaking & listening, working on script writing and performance. I now use MacTubes on my Mac to download the video as an mp4. In the YouTube search box enter the URL of the video you want to download. My next step is to send this to my iPad/s.

Screencasting Apps for the iPad  Teaching ourselves, our students and other educators how to use screenshooting (images) and screencasting (video) tools is a relevant skill to have that integrates in so many areas. Think Tutorial Designers (A role from the Digital Learning Farm) or the Flipped Classroom model. Being able to create, share and take advantage of readily available screencasts touch upon so many of the skills (create, communicate) and literacies (network, media, information literacy). Maybe you have never heard about screencasting, have not paid much attention to it and/or have never tried to create one of your own. Or maybe you have plenty of experience in creating your own screencasts and incorporated screencasting into your lessons or assessments before. Maybe you feel screencasting to be a basic, one of the most important or an essential teaching and learning skill for you as an educator or for your students to have. I agree with many others who say that: The first options that I immediately liked was
