Hot Apps 4 HOTS: TCEA 2012

In preparation for our “Hot Apps 4 HOTS” workshop which will be offered at TCEA 2012, we have created an ePub to serve as the framework for the course.

The ePub includes 9 task cards. There is a task card for each level of Bloom’s taxonomy. (If an app was only available on the iPad 2, we included a secondary task card to be used with the iPad 1). Each task card includes:

  1. Bloom’s Level & Definition
  2. App(s) Used with a Brief Description (all apps are free)
  3. Task Summary
  4. Step-by-Step Directions for the Task
  5. Example of Completed Task
  6. Further Thoughts
  7. Other Resources (includes support materials for the task as well as hyperlinks to other iLesson(s) using the app)

The ePub also includes:

  1. The Story behind our ePub
  2. Resources and setup
  3. iPad Basics (includes information about getting an app, launching an app, changing orientation)
  4. Acquiring Content (includes tips and how to’s for taking pictures and video, saving an image from the web, taking screenshots, adding content through iTunes, and adding content through a shared Dropbox)
  5. Submitting Products
  6. Author Biographies
  7. Acknowledgments
  8. Citations

The ePub is available in iBooks for TCEA 2012 participants (and any anyone else interested) to download and enjoy!
