Check out the Edudemic Post.

This image from Edudemic — Full Spectrum of iPad Learning Activities  illustrates how the capabilities of the iPad interact with high quality apps and enable students and educators to develop and engage with in-depth learning activities.

This graphic is the clearest image that I’ve ever seen — highlighting the adroitness of  iPad capabilities and depicting range of opportunities offered to resourceful teachers and learners. It’s a connected learning gem.

Read the full post or check out other great learning information at the Edudemic blog. Don’t be put off by the many lists and the lack – sometimes – of expository writing. The Edudemic blog posts contain a huge amount of valuable information, curated especially for digital learners.

NOTE: If you peruse past posts here on GDSTechTips, you’ll discover several other links to Edudemic, usually on topics that relate to an issue or topic that is under discussion here at school.  One to check out is a GDSTechTips post linking to an Edudemic piece that described some of the ways iPad capabilities can be wasted in schools.

  1. Create a presentation.
  2. Create an e-book.
  3. Record audio clips.
  4. Take notes from an iPad and print or e-mail them.
