Colette Cassinelli's visionary use of information literacy and educational technology

Digital Learning Day

 

 

Digital Learning Day – Friday, March 13th – happened to fall during our school theme week this year.  With already a ton of extra scheduled events to explore social justice issues around water, I wanted to find a simple but fun way to celebrate Digital Learning Day.

Since we went 1:1 with iPads this year I thought an iPad Demo Slam might be a fun way to quickly share how students were using their iPads in class. We set up a projector in the main hallway and invited students to display their device and show off an app, a project or a creative way they are using their iPad.  We passed out treats to encourage a crowd and posted everyone’s ideas to a poster board.

Check out the following apps shared in the iPad Demo Slam:

  • Notes+ (similar to Notability but more powerful)
  • iStudiez free or Pro – student planner
  • Pythonista – program your own games on iPad
  • Canva – beautiful templates for posters, photo albums, social media
  • Songbook – organize your music
  • Let’s create pottery – virtual pottery creator
  • Akinator – Q&A fun game
  • Skitch – draw on your images
  • Art Rage ($$) – Art creations for the serious artist
  • iMotion – stop motion animation
  • Quizlet – make your own study cards
  • Tellagami – talking avatar
  • Anatomy 4D – augmented reality 4D versions of body & heart
  • Comic Life ($) – Create your own comics
  • Phonto – Add creative text to images
  • PiksArt – create art & photo editing
  • Wunderlist – organize your life & share calendars with friends or family
  • 1Password ($) stores all your passwords
  • Day One – daily journal
