Technology Coach Chris Loat shares his ideas on how Book Creator can be used effectively in the classroom. Chris Loat has taught for 16 years between grades 2-7, and recently moved to the district board office in Richmond, Canada, as a teacher consultant for the integration of technology. Book Creator is a versatile and intuitively set-up app that allows students to easily create digital content in a variety of ways. In Richmond, teachers have used their iPads and Book Creator to publish ebooks on a variety of topics and in a variety of genres. Below are some ideas for using Book Creator in your classroom. 1.

Creating a Classroom Studio with an iPad and a Green Screen One way to depict the cycle of education is that it moves between the development of learning and the subsequent expression of understanding ... and the amazing growth of inexpensive mobile technology tools is affording learners the ability to communicate their understanding in ever more creative and personalized manners. Media is moving center stage (yes, the pun was fully intended) and what once required tens of thousands of dollars in equipment and training can now be accomplished with an iPad and some inexpensive props. One of the first places I visited when I first came to the United States was Universal Studios. Of course, being a relatively young and willing tourist, my hand automatically shot up when they asked for a volunteer to put on tights and a cape and "fly" like Superman in front of a green screen. Needless to say it didn't springboard me into an acting career but it did spark my interest in how movie magic could be used for education. 1. x 2. 3. The process:

Pensée Design : libérez votre créativité ! Demain, faire la différence ne résidera que peu dans un parcours académique « classique », même renommé ou prestigieux, mais dans le développement de sa capacité à développer des idées créatives ; à trouver des solutions innovantes à des problématiques réelles ; à s’adapter en permanence à un monde qui change très vite ; à apprendre en autodidacte, et tout au long de la vie… La créativité est déjà une qualité reconnue et indéniable aujourd’hui, mais elle sera indispensable pour chacun d’entre nous demain, pas seulement à quelques-uns. Mais rassurez-vous, la créativité n’est pas qu’un don, c’est aussi quelque chose qui se travaille, qui se muscle. J’avais du mal à y croire au début, mais je réalise aujourd’hui, après avoir beaucoup lu sur le sujet et m’être régulièrement exercé, que la créativité n’est pas réservée à un petit nombre d’élus. Tout le monde, même s’il part d’un niveau différent, peut largement progresser et parfois de façon spectaculaire… J’y ai assisté !

How To Use 'App Smashing' In Education If you are a teacher that uses an iPad, chances are that you are familiar with the following scenario. You found this amazing app that can really help your struggling students. The potential of this app is great, as it appears that this particular app can tap your students’ creativity and allow them to thrive in ways that were unthinkable until now. Due to the unfortunate fact that there isn’t a “silver bullet app” yet- an app that can accomplish many, very different tasks- we have to rely on teachers’ and students’ creativity in order to accomplish multi-step tasks using the iPad. What is App Smashing? The basic premise behind app smashing, sometimes referred to as “app synergy”, is to find a number of key apps that “play well” with other apps and can communicate information across platforms. In a typical app smashing activity a student can use an app to create a product such as a word cloud, a picture collage, a map, or a slide show presentation. App Smashing’s Target Audience
