iPad + Milk Crate = Document Camera

The iPad+MilkCrate idea originated in working with my wife’s English class on their iBooks Author Project.  We had a need for something cheap, fast, and easy that the kids could use to either record a paper slide presentation and/or do stop-motion paper animation. I’m aware that there are plenty of digital ways of doing this, but kids seem to like having choices. Combining analog with digital media can produce some very novel results that preserve the student’s voice and personality in the project. So in brainstorming…

Create a Photo Web Page for Collaboration in iOS

Create a Photo Web Page for Collaboration in iOS

Finding photos for class projects can be extremely time consuming and distracting for students. Often, they seem to focus more on the pictures than on the content of the lesson. Creating collections of photos for them to choose from is one way to scaffold instructional tech activities to make them take less time. I like to do this on my phone and use the photo sharing feature in iOS to make the media available to my students. The video below will show you how I…

Using an iBooks Author Project to Teach Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream to 10th Graders

by Cassie Miller We started the iBooks Author project as an experiment for our IT director, Chris Miller. None of the kids knew how to use it, as it had been out as an app for just a short time. I couldn’t help them or teach them how to use it – I was clueless! I could help with the content, but the kids had to figure the how-to and ins-and-outs on their own. And they did! They loved creating their chapters and collaborating in their groups…

Virtual Dice On-Line

As requested by Jessie Hooper, here are some sites to find virtual dice to roll. Each of these have animation, which makes the experience a little nicer for the students. Jessie was using these to teach counting to her Pre-K students in centers, but the links can just as easily be used for teaching probability in later grades. Virtual Dice – has a decent animation – not very dice like. http://www.bgfl.org/bgfl/custom/resources_ftp/client_ftp/ks1/maths/dice/index.htm VirtualDiceRoll.com – a little more realistic with nice animation. Small on the screen so you will have to…
