Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Interactive Visual Featuring 6 Tasks You Can Easily Do Using iPad

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Interactive Visual Featuring 6 Tasks You Can Easily Do Using iPad
June , 2014 This is an interactive image (created using Thinglink) that features a bunch of useful iPad apps that you can use to do tasks that you would traditionally do using a pen and paper. I really liked the idea of providing alternatives to do things digitally. For instance, instead of taking notes in a notebook or on paper you can use Evernote or any other note taking app to do it on iPad. The good thing about doing things digitally is that you have the added advantage of accessing, editing, and sharing your work across different devices and platforms and also saving it on the cloud to access it anytime anywhere anywhere you go. As is the case with the all the interactive Thinglink images I shared here in the past, the app icons shared here are hyperlinked, just hover your mouse over any of them to access it on the iTunes app store.

Les tablettes tactiles : des expérimentations encourageantes L’évolution du numérique nous amène à supposer que les nouvelles technologies offrent un réel potentiel de réussite scolaire en gardant à l’esprit que c’est surtout la manière dont elles sont utilisées par l’enseignant qui importe. En somme, à adopter une posture d’enseignants technoréfléchis [1]. Utiliser la tablette en classe ouvre de multiples possibilités Initialement, la tablette était utilisée comme outil de lecture ou de consultation en ligne via des sites ou des liens hypertextes. Au-delà de ses fonctions premières, la tablette offre des applications photos, vidéo, audio et graphiques simples et rapides d’utilisation. Pour les enseignants qui souhaitent utiliser la tablette, il existe déjà plusieurs portails de ressources disponibles. Expérimenter la tablette en classe : des retours encourageants Les retours des enseignants sur ces pratiques montrent que les dispositifs mobiles sont avant tout des outils qui permettent aux élèves de travailler selon leurs besoins, à leur rythme.

Free Collaborative Video Creation with iPads This is a guest post from Greg Kulowiec of, an advertiser on Free Technology for Teachers. Publishing student video that is created with iPads can be a challenging process, especially with younger students. Even schools that are Google Apps typically decide to turn off YouTube uploads to the student accounts. However, with the use of a handful of free applications, students can create video content on iPad, share their creation with a teacher, and then have the teacher upload to their YouTube channel or a class YouTube channel. For the creation process, students can use any video creation app that allows the final product to be exported to the camera roll. Once the content is in Google Drive, a teacher can access the student created video through the Google Drive app on their iPad. The video will now be ready for upload to the teacher’s or class YouTube channel.

20+ Tools to Create Your Own Infographics A picture is worth a thousand words – based on this, infographics would carry hundreds of thousands of words, yet if you let a reader choose between a full-length 1000-word article and an infographic that needs a few scroll-downs, they’d probably prefer absorbing information straight from the infographic. What’s not to like? Colored charts and illustrations deliver connections better than tables and figures and as users spend time looking back and forth the full infographic, they stay on the site longer. Plus, readers who like what they see are more likely to share visual guides more than articles. While not everyone can make infographics from scratch, there are tools available on the Web that will help you create your very own infographics. In this article, we’re listing more than 20 such options to help you get your messages across to your readers, visually. Read Also: The Infographic Revolution: Where Do We Go From Here?

Law Related Education Civics Resource Guide | Law-related education equips the public with knowledge and skills pertaining to the legal system and improves the public’s perception of courts by teaching how the legal and political systems function with and for the people.

Les tablettes tactiles, des outils facilitateurs de contenus pour une éducation efficiente à la culture numérique 1 Share Share Tweet Email Problématique pédagogique : Les tablettes tactiles ont de nombreux avantages qui incitent les professeurs comme les élèves à redéfinir leur création de contenu dans et en dehors de la classe. Il convient donc de s’interroger sur les possibilités offertes par cet outil, dont la nature même modifie la position structurelle des acteurs de la classe. En quoi le nomadisme des tablettes permet-il aux élèves et aux professeurs de mieux s’interroger sur les processus de création ainsi que sur la réception de leurs productions ? Pour le professeur, en quoi les tablettes permettent-elles de renouveler les supports afin de construire un cours qui rende les élèves acteurs et auteurs ? Enfin, en quoi la mobilité des tablettes est-elle un atout pour éduquer les futurs citoyens aux médias en utilisant des formats de création (vidéos par exemple) qui peuvent devenir des objets de consommation?

La tablette en maternelle : synthèse d’une expérimentation en France L’Académie Orléans-Tours a étudié en 2012-2013 des projets pédagogiques vécus dans ses écoles intégrant des tablettes. Son rapport, « Enseigner avec une tablette au primaire », fait état des expériences et des conclusions et peut être consulté en ligne. On y retrouve plusieurs observations intéressantes. Parmi les effets positifs retenus, on note que la tablette est un outil qui aide l’enseignant du préscolaire (maternelle - petite, moyenne et grande section) à médiatiser son enseignement. En effet, elle constitue à la fois « une banque d’images, un appareil photo, un laboratoire de langue ». À l’encontre de l’approche préconisée au Québec, on indique dans ce rapport qu’« il est primordial que l’enseignant puisse trouver "l’application" qui répondra le plus à ses besoins ». Parmi les défis, on compte le temps nécessaire pour la création des contenus et activités dans cette optique, mais on ajoute que le tout sera idéalement réutilisable d’année en année.
