@Eduware_Inc Welcome to today’s #iPadChat ! Our topic for today is ‘iPad Fluency’

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc iPad Fluency is the philosophy of using all aspects of iPad, and achieving a mastery of the basic functions. #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc When looking at #ipad fluency, let’s not confuse it with what a laptop can do. #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens That brings up a good point, what are the best ways to fill the gaps an iPad presents as a laptop replacement? #ipadchat

tweet details

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens Also, for digital storytelling, how about the Alice in Wonderland app? http://bit.ly/d99yqS #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc We need to look at activities that use mult apps. Start w/ Dropbox or ifile to access , Quickoffice to edit, and so #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc With digital storytelling, look at apps that the student creates the content. Comic Life, strip designer, … #ipadchat

@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens Good idea, dropbox is definitely the best starting point for cross-app sharing. #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens Good idea, dropbox is definitely the best starting point for cross-app sharing. #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc To get started with dropbox, here is a list of iPad apps that utilize Dropbox: http://bit.ly/jttxpA #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens Do you have a recommendation between those storytelling apps? #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc Maybe icloud will expand file accessibility on ipad, similar to dropbox #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens Yes! Hopefully it will open better interaction with Google Docs as well. #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens My list of D. storytelling apps http://bit.ly/hg2Hbg #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens I really like powerdocs to access google dos from the ipad #ipadchat Other apps crash with mult. people edit

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens Do you think google will ever release native apps, or would that be a conflict with the android platform? #ipadchat

tweet details
@nrojas0131 @nathan_stevens What’s powerdocs? I’m not a teacher but often use GoogleDocs for class. #iPadchat

tweet details
@tvallier @nrojas0131 PowerDocs is an app for the iPad. #ipadchat @nathan_stevens

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @nrojas0131 It’s a full featured google docs client. Great for accessing gdocs. http://bit.ly/mi3mH8 #iPadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens Do you have any recommendations for handwriting on the iPad? #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc Penultimate is got at handwriting. I am looking for anyone who has used Phatpad app? #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens It looks like a serious performer for handwriting recognition: http://bit.ly/lAFJqM #ipadchat

tweet details
@S_Getting ABC Tracer is a wonderful app for practicing letter formation! #ipadchatbr>
tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @S_Getting Is there an age range you could recommend it for? #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens Do you use the external keyboard made by apple? The one that attaches to the ipad? #ipadchat

tweet details
@tvallier RT @S_Getting: ABC Tracer is a wonderful app for practicing letter formation! #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc I use the keyboard doc, really detest anything that uses batteries. #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens I’ve given it a try, and found it a bit awkward, but better than the on-screen keyboard for extended typing. #ipadchat

tweet details
@S_Getting RT @Eduware_Inc: @S_Getting Is there an age range you could recommend it for? #ipadchat YES – Pre K- 1st Grade

tweet details
@nathan_stevens For developing handwriting , I like ABC Cursive and ABC Print. There is another one I can think of #ipadchat

tweet details
@tvallier @S_Getting @Eduware_Inc I have terrible handwriting, has this been tested for improving penmanship of adults/older students? #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens The app I forgot is BoobleWriteHD is really really good. #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens I can’t find this in the app store #ipadchat

tweet details
@S_Getting RT @tvallier: @S_Getting @Eduware_Inc Not sure about helping adults, I def. saw imp. in b/d reversals w/kids this year! #ipadchat

@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc Effects or standard editing? #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens Either, how about editing? #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc My page on image editing apps http://bit.ly/jONmg7 #ipadchat

tweet details
@dananj57 Adobe Photoshop express works well the free version too @Eduware_Inc: what’s your go-to app for editing images? #ipadchat

tweet details
@tvallier I’ve had much success with PS Express as well http://t.co/SbjAagP #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc RT @nathan_stevens: @Eduware_Inc My page on image editing apps http://bit.ly/jONmg7 #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens PS express, Filterstorm, and PhotoPad (Free), I really like Tiltshift apps for stuent activity photos #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens How intuitive is the tiltshift app? What age range would a student activity with that app be appropriate for? #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc Take a picture that adjuct focus circle to create tilshift #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc Next fluency point: Has anyone found a use for mindmapping in the classroom? #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens If you are interest in coll. whiteboards on ipad, check out @groupboard. Setup our own server this week. #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc Total recall has worked for us. http://bit.ly/kZXZ68 #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens http://bit.ly/kZXZ68 list of mindmapping apps #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens I’m wondering, how does ‘total recall’ handle exporting of mind maps? #ipadchat

tweet details
@lkhixson Business Educator looking for updated information about technology in the secondary classroom #edtech #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc Image, Pdf , image through email #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens Share board if you want to mindmap in groups of four #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @lkhixson You are in the right place, are considering using an iPad in the classroom? #edtech #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens Mindblowing is nice for mindmapping, but it is an iphone app #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens Do you have any thoughts on the effectiveness of scaling iPhone apps for the iPad, is it still usable? #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens Still usable, but a little blurry. #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens Have to be careful, some iphone apps will not run on ipad #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens I thought all iPhone apps were required to be able to run on the iPad. Not true? #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc I have run into a few that didn’t #ipadchat

tweet details
@dananj57 Last week 20 of our faculty took iPad training given by Apple and a handful of the apps to download for training were iphone apps. #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @clouDevice #iPadChat is every Wednesday at 1 p.m. EST. #edtech #ISTE11

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @dananj57 How was the effectiveness of this training? Some schools use apple, others use in house people. Which is better? #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens Apple people tend to push Apple solutions, and not far outside of their box #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens I would say that’s probably true. Do they charge for their training? #ipadchat

tweet details
@dananj57 @Eduware_Inc We had two days one basic day skills day &1 more advanced and all good feedback from those I spoke with. #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @dananj57 At the end of the second day, did you feel ‘fluent’ with the iPad? #ipadchat

tweet details
@dananj57 @Eduware_Inc we will do inhouse training also but later in the summer after our teachers have have used them for a little while #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc Not sure you can ever be fluent on an iPAD, always changing with every app #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @dananj57 That sounds like a very solid approach! I’m anxious to hear how fluent your teachers will be in the fall. #ipadchat

tweet details
@dananj57 @Eduware_Inc i had to give my spot up bc i was busy with another project unfortuneatly but i pick up easy and so far so good #ipadchat

tweet details
@gee_mr #ipadchat there is a good tiltshift photo at geemister.wordpress.com

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @gee_mr Nice photo! Have you developed a lesson plan for this app? http://bit.ly/k6kw7l #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens I use tiltshift images when I want to blur the student, but show that activity #ipadchat

tweet details
@dananj57 @Eduware_Inc I will support these teachers during the school year so eventually the stuff that bugs me will get easier #ipadchat

tweet details
@dananj57 I agree RT @nathan_stevens: @Eduware_Inc Not sure you can ever be fluent on an iPAD, always changing with every app #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens @dananj57 After 3 ipad project,s things that bug you get replaced but other things that bug you #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens I’ve found that over time, the more you interact with the device, the easier it is to find solutions. #ipadchat

tweet details
@dananj57 @nathan_stevens haha – technology in general can be frustrating but in the end problem gets solved at least for me 🙂 #ipadchat

tweet details
@nathan_stevens @Eduware_Inc but when you give them out to 30+ students, they come up with all sorts of issues #ipadchat

tweet details
@dananj57 @nathan_stevens sure but i find if it isn’t physically broken then its all in details and another kid help #ipadchat

tweet details
div>@Eduware_Inc @nathan_stevens That’s a good point, over time the iPad as a classroom tool should become more streamlined. #ipadchat

tweet details
@Eduware_Inc Let’s conclude our #ipadchat on ‘fluency’. Thank you everyone for sharing and participating. I’ll be posting the archive shortly! #ipadchat
