On to iPad2

Through a grant for a pilot project in our District my students and I have just received 12 iPads to use in class. I have had my own iPad for two years now and use it all day long. I'm excited to learn about how to design activities for student use. My first step has to be to create an educational account to purchase apps. I hadn't realized that when you have an iTunes account you can only purchase an app once as an individual. I will need an educational account to buy group licences. Our…

I still don’t have a definitive answer, but I suppose it depends on the goals of your educational establishment and the age group of learners and what they need to…

About podcasts

The educational value of the podcasts is that it can be created from original material by students and teachers or existing audio files can be downloaded for classroom use.Creating a podcast allows students to share learning experiences. Teachers can use the technology to provide additional and revision material to students to download and review at a time that suits them.

Podcasting and Voicethread thoughts

Not a fan of podcasting, can very easily become distracted if not have written dialog to follow. Love the notion of Voicthread, however system is so powerful need, to shutdown all other applications just to run the program. Note: the internet isn’t very strong or reliable where I am located.

I have experience with Skype but the conference call and recording of calls were new to me. I…

МЕДИАОБРАЗОВАНИЕ КАК НОВЫЙ СОЦИАЛЬНЫЙ ПРИОРИТЕТ

СМИ играют значительную роль в современных обществах,

в сфере СМИ являются составной частью образования современ-

ного гражданина. Многие международные организации – ЮНЕ-
