Free iOS App Today - Melody Street HD for iPad


“The House On Melody Street” interactive eBook tells the heart-warming story of the instruments of the orchestra learning to live in harmony.

The storyline, written in rhymes and set to a symphonic score, includes lessons about friendship, tolerance, and mutual understanding. The musical score represents different dialogues between the various characters, portraying each one with its own unique sound. Children are introduced to the musical families of the orchestra- Strings, Woodwinds, Percussion, Brass and Pluck, and learn to recognize them by look, sound, character and family orientation.

The first chapter introduces the five story house in which the musical instrument families live. Children get to interact and form personal relationships with each of the lovable characters through fun and imagination filled touch-screen activities. As the story unfolds in the following chapters, we discover that living together is no easy task, when one isn’t willing to accept the other's uniqueness. Timpani Tim is too loud, Old Lady Harp's cat goes through the trash, Sammy Snare is rowdy and Terry Trombone's cooking smells. But on one sunny morning, a new neighbor arrives and comes up with a plan to help them live in harmony.

Listen to the sound of each instrument and follow along with the story... you will discover a new surprising interactive feature with every read! This app is wonderful for children and their development through fun activities and entertaining musical education.

10 Ways Data Mining Will Transform Higher Ed

"Data mining, for better or worse, is having a major impact on numerous facets of American life. While many of the changes have been related to business, especially online business, education is also tapping into the power of data mining in a big way. Much like Netflix and Amazon use consumer data to recommend products and tailor customer experiences, colleges are using student data to help recruit students, offer them career advice, or even to help them excel in their courses. While the practice has its critics, many of whom believe it’s an invasion of privacy and creates a watered-down, prescriptive education system, there is no doubt that the applications and the impact of the data mining will grow in the coming decade. These are just a few of the ways that dating mining will transform higher ed in the coming years, whether students and teachers like it or not."

What about Jelly Bean?

Although Google announced Android 4.1, a.k.a. Jelly Bean, in June, that release is just now starting to roll out to devices and likely won't reach the majority of phones for a while. Android 4.0 is the OS that most of us are getting to know right now; it comes preloaded on many new phones and is currently being rolled out to existing handsets. And as the version number indicates, Android 4.1 is more about refinement than revolution; once you're up to speed with ICS, Jelly Bean is a short hop away.

Edutopia - Five Tips for New Teachers to Become Connected Educators

"This month, the U.S. Department of Education kicked off Connected Educator Month, with engaging keynotes, panel discussions, book chats, and more. During this month, educators in the U.S. and globally will have opportunities to connect themselves and their communities, online and in-person, to support their professional practice. The timing couldn't be better, as most teachers are preparing to hit the ground running as they gear up for back-to-school!

While the idea of being or becoming a connected educator is important, as a new teacher, this may seem completely overwhelming. There are resources in abundance for this month of learning, such as the CEM Starter Kit and the Connected Educator Month Calendar. These sites are packed with wonderful information, truly enough to get the head of a new teacher spinning!

Having said that, I'd like to chunk this Connected Educator Learning Month opportunity into five educator "Be-Attitudes" that might be easier for a new or pre-service teacher to embrace.
Be sure to read each one and give us some feedback."

Why You Are Select Online Sechool

Online Schools, Online Education
There are more students who enroll in online school. Here are some facts when choosing to go to school online.

Although online courses are taken in a way that is easier than traditional classes, you just need the same amount of work to exercise. The quality of training varies between online degree programs. Students need more discipline, because most of the work independently in an online school. As Nathaniel Kennedy, director of marketing for the online programs of Argosy University, "In reality, it takes a very dedicated student to succeed online."

While the farm there was a degree, a real online university requiring the same work ethic and seriousness of the equivalent in the real world could be done.

Most online college has a lot of work for their program more personal, even without the usual face to face interaction experience in a traditional setting. "We tried the same comfortable and familiar academic experience as you live in one of our campus locations offer, but make it through the online environment," said Kennedy.

There are forums, weekly conference calls and school counselors to students throughout the process to help. Instructors also receive personal feedback to each student to help them grow. As in a traditional classroom, students must also learn to work together with teachers and professors.

There is some concern that the online school will not be able to develop quality education and training opportunities. This may be true or false, depending on the school. Reputable schools that offer online courses online with a brick and mortar their degrees. He is also active in the schools online that offer only good quality comparable to a real university. Accreditation is always a good starting point when looking good and which are simply mediocre or worse.

Online college has the same credit as traditional, that someone got a normally be acceptable to transfer real contexts. However, there are some problems. Some colleges and universities will not accept credits from a number of schools, especially if they are not accredited. For example, a number of real-world institutions do not accept credits from online school accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council.

You do not need a technical genius to do well online school. It is not too difficult if you take the basic things like email and argue about. Most of the online school is aware that all students are technophiles and can be a difficult time navigating through the course so that they support, to take an online course easier.

Most students graduate online, without the need of a real campus. There are still students who want to go online courses and campus.

It gives them the advantage of the opportunity for the same facilities and resources that traditional students, leveling the playing field in this direction to open.

"Foreign language classes have proven a popular target for cash-strapped administrators looking to cut costs. We understand the money has to come from somewhere, and the practicality of a class like Latin could be debated. But as the United States continues on its path toward being home to the most Spanish speakers in the world, we can ill afford to let up on its instruction. Luckily, interested smartphone owners hold the key to a wealth of Spanish teaching in their pockets. Below, grouped by phone type, are our picks for the 25 best mobile apps (although some are available across platforms)."

Note from Nathan:  I thought this post might be interesting to Health and Nutrition educators...

100 Best Blogs for Journalism Students (Updated)

"With newspapers going under all over the nation, journalism is becoming an increasingly hard field in which to start a career as the number of opportunities in traditional media are rapidly dwindling. Journalism students shouldn't despair just yet, however, as the web and other digital outlets are offering a host of new opportunities that may help fill the gaps left by the loss of many local papers and print magazines. Yet while new opportunities may be on the horizon for web-savvy journalists, that doesn't mean that journalism has become any less competitive and to make it into a solid job, students will need to know more than just how to write well.

One way to get a leg up is by studying the trends, technologies, and intricacies of the modern world of journalism, a goal which is most easily accomplished by becoming an avid reader of journalism blogs. We've collected a few here that we think are essential reads for journalism students, an update on our original list from 2009, which includes some new names and faces as well as some perennial favorites that we think journalism students shouldn't miss out on following."

Methodologies of Online Education

There were many myths and misconceived notions about online education until recent past. Some people believed that online learning is a good option only for students who have a good track record. It was also believed that only those students having access to computers and modern means of communication would benefit from online education. However, with time such notions are giving way to an open acceptance where people have started accepting online education as a viable alterative for conventional education.
Not all online education options have a similar methodology and approach. There are various modes of online education available and it would be better if you have an understanding of different methodologies in use by online education providers so that you can select the course with the methodology that suits you the best. Here we are discussing the learning methodologies for online education:
Online Education Methodologies- Different Options

In this mode of online education, there is instant communication between the students and teachers and at times even among different students. Herein all the participants get access to information simultaneously. Virtual classroom using the facility of video or audio conferencing and real-time chat are some examples of this mode of online education.
This learning methodology has its advantages and disadvantages. This mode is more akin to the conventional education except for the fact that the students don't have to travel to the classrooms. The biggest advantage of synchronous method of online education is that it allows instant feedback for the student's performance and allows active interaction among the students and teachers. Thus the students can get the training and education that is tailored suit their needs. Moreover, live education also facilitates the setting up of learning communities and groups for a better interaction among the learners.
This method has the disadvantage that the students cannot plan their schedule and they are bound by the pre-set schedule.
Asynchronous: Asynchronous mode of online education is popularly termed as store and forward education. In this method, the communication between the student and teacher is not instant. Self-paced courses are the examples of asynchronous online education where the students communicate with the teachers and amongst themselves by exchanging emails and posting messages on online bulletin boards and discussing groups. This is the more popular mode of online education because it offers more convenience and flexibility to the students and they can decide the pace and schedule for their education and training.
Despite of the advantages, this mode of online education has its disadvantages too. The students in this mode of learning, lack discipline and motivation and generally tend to develop a lackluster attitude towards education.
The mixed mode of learning in online education combines the advantages of both the modes and it is a combination of personal lectures or face-to-face interaction learning through online activities.
