Two Wonderful Visual Lists of Educational iPad Apps for Teachers and Students

Two Wonderful Visual Lists of Educational iPad Apps for Teachers and Students
In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices. The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same. What attracts my attention more than anything else in this program are the two lists of core apps curated for both teachers and students.

Creative writing tips for teachers: ideas and activities to inspire your class | Teacher Network Engaging children and encouraging them to write has become increasingly difficult in the classroom. My children are bombarded with interactive and visual images constantly through the media and the internet and, as their teacher, it has become much harder for me to compete. Who wants to read or write an emotional descriptive piece when they can be fully immersed in this feeling through interactive game play? This challenge has led me to look at how I can use these media, and more dynamic approaches, to engage children in wanting to use their literacy skills and to hook them into becoming creative and thoughtful writers. Using video One way which is sure to engage children is through the use of video, in particular TV and film. For example, with my year 3 class I used the Jason and the Argonauts films to help them to explore the key features of the myths and legends genre. Non-fiction can be dealt with equally as well. Real life experience Cross curricular writing Adding drama
