Vinkkejä iPadin päivittäiseen käyttöön | Puhetta terapeutista Käytän puheterapeutin työssäni iPadiä ja en luopuisi siitä enää Mistään Hinnasta! Mitä hienouksia iPad sitten tarjoaa? Tässä listaan alkuun ”perusteita” iPadin ihmeellisestä maailmasta ja lisää on tulossa osissa 2-n. 1. Asiakas on piirtänyt ja värittänyt hienon kuvan lempiaiheestaan ja kysyy: ”Voinko saada tämän kotiin?” 2. Oman työ-iPadini muisti huutaa viimeisillään, koska sieltä löytyy lähemmäs sata sovellusta. Kansion teko: Paina pitkään jotain sovellusta, kunnes kuvakkeet alkavat täristä. 3. Kuka muistaa mihin kansioon olet laittanut vaikka My PlayHome -sovelluksen? 4. Niin vauhdikas kaveri, ettet ehdi kissaa sanoa, kun sovellukset vaihtuvat ruudulla sormen huitaisulla? 5. Asiakas on kääntänyt ensimmäisen kuvan ensimmäisestä tehtävästä ja kysyy: ”Joko mä saan pelata iPadillä?”. 6. Olen liikkuva puheterapeutti ja usein huomaan liian myöhään, että peili on hyvin pakattuna pussiin, joka on laatikossa, joka on takakontissa AUTOSSA. 7. 8. 9. 10.

3 iPad Apps You May Not Know About for Demonstrating Learning Students turn what they know into a puzzle game with the Stick Around app. Puzzles are made in three steps: Use drawing tools and/or import photos to make a background.Add stickers with text, images, and or drawings.Indicate where stickers belong by making an answer key.

Vinkkejä iPadin päivittäiseen käyttöön osa 2 | Puhetta terapeutista Joku viikko sitten keräilin blogiini vinkkejä iPadin käytöstä terapeutin työssä. Toiveita tuli saada näitä lisää ja vähän lupailin jatkoa. Tässä näitä käyttövinkkejä taas on ajatuksenjuoksun mukaisessa sekalaisessa järjestyksessä. 1. Monisormieleet Sivulle neljällä, yksi ylös ja neljällä ylös. Yhden sormen pyyhkäisy alas: Kotivalikossa pyyhkäise yhdellä sormella alas ruudun keskeltä ja esiin tulee Spotlight-haku. Yhden sormen pyyhkäisy ylös: Kotivalikossa yhden sormen pyyhkäisy alareunasta tuo esiin pikavalikon useimmiten käytetyille asetuksille kuten lentokonetila, bluetooth, mykistä. Kahden sormen nipistys: Kahdella sormella nipistämällä pystyt zoomamaan esimerkiksi kuvia suuremmaksi ja pienemmäksi.

Apps That Rise to the Top: Tested and Approved By Teachers Michelle Luhtala/Edshelf With the thousands of educational apps vying for the attention of busy teachers, it can be hard to sift for the gold. Michelle Luhtala, a savvy librarian from New Canaan High School in Connecticut has crowd-sourced the best, most extensive list of apps voted on by educators around the country. “I wanted to make sure we had some flexibility because there’s no one app that’s better than all the others,” Luhtala said. 30Hands allows a user to make pictures, annotate them, record a voice explainer and then packages it all into a video. Adobe Voice is a recently released education product from Adobe that allows students to narrate a story over an array of digital images. Book Creator is only available for iPads, allowing kids to easily create their own iBook by importing images, multimedia, text, and audio. Tellagami is a tool to share quick animated messages. ExplainEverything is another tool for creating video like tutorials. Symphonizer is great for music classes.

Mobiilisovellukset opetuksessa Mobiilivälineitä on testattu Helsingin kouluissa innokkaasti jo muutaman vuoden ajan. Opettajat ja oppilaat ovat ottaneet uudet välineet innolla vastaan. Eikä ihme! Mobiilivälineiden tuoma uudenlainen oppimisen kulttuuri antaa oppimiseen ja opettamiseen monia uusia mahdollisuuksia, joista ei voinut vuosikymmen sitten edes uneksiakaan. Tästä innosta syntyvästä osaamisen kehittymisestä haluamme jakaa kaikille, jotka haluavat olla kehityksessä osallisina. Mobiiliuteen liittyy myös jakamisen ja osallistumisen mahdollisuus, joka mahdollistaa hyvässä ja pahassa uusia asioita opetuksessa. Muutoksessa oleminen vaatii tarkkuutta ja selkeyttä. Helsingissä käynnissä olevat mobiilioppimista edistävät hankkeet löytyvät Mediakeskuksen sivuilta kootusti. Tälle sivustolle on koottu peruspaketit sovelluksista kustakin kolmesta käyttöjärjestelmästä (iOS, Android ja Win8), jotka ovat tällä hetkellä markkinoilla hallitsevassa asemassa (9/2014).

best learning moments The earliest example of I know of children using GPS devices to "walk" pictures onto the landscape came from a project run in Norwich by Alex Blanc and others all then together at Cleveratom and one of the many fab research teams that grew out of the end of Ultralab. The students were part of a group called the Rug Room - all somewhere on the autism spectrum. You can see and hear from them all and Matt Eaves (another of the Cleveratom folk then) from this video if you have a device that plays Flash. As you'll hear they went on to do cool things with 3D and photoshop too.... You can find Matt Eaves here. As you see in this picture the kids walked an ambitious Viking longship image onto the Norwich streets, braving the dual carriageway (!) Teamwork, maths and mapwork skills, outdoor, active, creative, stretching... what's not to like!

Apps for Tablets Coding-for-kids app Hakitzu Elite launches on Android When it came out for iPad in March, the Hakitzu: Code of the Warrior app knocked our socks off with its ambition: teaching kids computer programming skills with giant virtual robots. Developer Kuato Studios has since renamed it Hakitzu Elite: Robot Warriors and launched an iPhone version. This week, it crossed over to Android too, meaning kids with access to Google-powered tablets can join the fun too. As on iOS, the app is all about teaching children and adults the basics of coding in the JavaScript language, by building and battling giant bots either against the device, or against other human players. “No previous coding knowledge is required to crack the code! “Follow the leaderboards and show off your new coding and gaming strategy to your friends! Hakitzu Elite: Robot Hackers is free to download for Android from the Google Play store (and also free for iPhone and iPad from Apple’s App Store).

The Epic BYOD Toolchest (51 Tools You Can Use Now) PowerSchool Learning: (Previously Haiku Learning.) This is a full learning management system (LMS) that I’m trying to get our school to adopt. It’s multiplatform and robust, which makes it a great fit for our BYOD environment. It also works on top of Google Classroom, so I have all those features too, plus my grade book. Google Classroom: Teachers are moving in droves to Google Classroom. There are many other content-sharing platforms, like Moodle, Canvas, and CourseSites. Screencasting and Capturing What Happens in Class If you’re going to share and interact with your students in the electronic and physical spaces (as you should), you must learn how to screencast. In some exciting news, Apple has announced that iOS 11 (out later this year) will include screen recording capabilities and new screenshot features. Screencast-O-Matic: This is my go-to app. Cloud Syncing Dropbox: If you shoot video and need to get it onto your computer, Dropbox is essential. Expression Blogging Presentations

Education innovation: A case study in what not to do (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin) The $1 billion initiative by the Los Angeles public schools district to give an iPad to all 650,000 students and teachers for home use has been nothing short of a mess, plagued by poor planning and bad execution. You can read about it here. Here’s a new look at what went wrong from Larry Cuban, a high school social studies teacher for 14 years, a district superintendent (seven years in Arlington, VA), and professor emeritus of education at Stanford University, where he has taught for more than 20 years. By Larry Cuban The rollout of iPads in Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) is becoming a classic case study of what not-to-do when implementing any innovation whether it is high-tech or low-tech. What is clear now is that teachers and principals were excluded from the decision-making process. 1. These are the most common reasons boards of education and school administrators across the nation give for buying tablets for K-12 students. 2. 3.

The iPad – What it should and shouldn’t be for Education | Mr G Online This blog originally started as a reflection journal as I begun a pilot program for using iPads at my school. My early posts ( check January and February posts ) were discussions of the pros and cons of iPads. As the year has gone by and I have more time to research, read other iPad articles and experiment more with apps and with the students using them more frequently, I’ve had time to reflect on what iPads are offering schools. What you should use iPads for in schools Multimedia content creation I am so sick of the tech press misrepresenting the iPad purely as a content consumption device and complaining that it is not for content creation. What the iPad offers to children is the ability to capture, develop and publish their learning in the creative, engaging, multimedia way they experience the world. Portable, anywhere, interactive collaborative learning The beauty of the iPad is its portability and use anywhere capability. Other What you shouldn’t use iPads for in schools

Why Some Schools Are Selling All Their iPads For an entire school year Hillsborough, New Jersey, educators undertook an experiment, asking: Is the iPad really the best device for interactive learning? It’s a question that has been on many minds since 2010, when Apple released the iPad and schools began experimenting with it. The devices came along at a time when many school reformers were advocating to replace textbooks with online curricula and add creative apps to lessons. Some teachers welcomed the shift, which allowed their students to replace old poster-board presentations with narrated screencasts and review teacher-produced video lessons at any time. Four years later, however, it's still unclear whether the iPad is the device best suited to the classroom. Meanwhile, the cost of equipment is going down, software is improving, and state policies are driving expectations for technology access. However, the L.A. district quickly recalled about 2,100 iPads from students. Hillsborough took a different approach.
