Are you designing for mobile?

Does your school make use of digital learning tools that are specifically designed to be accessed via all mobile technologies? Is interoperability guaranteed across all device types?
Is your school developing its own apps for learning? For example, does your library have an app? Your science department? Not just a Web presence … I’m talking app, available in iTunes or in Google Play?
Is your school developing a mobile Web experience for your community that projects the expertise and the value that is your school, and showcases student learning and accomplishment?

Today is World Autism Awareness Day.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) now estimates that a staggering 1 in 88 children, including 1 in 54 boys, in the US  has been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder.

Edudemic shared 4 apps that can aid autistic students to better communicate with parents, teachers, and caregivers.
AutisMate is an app for iOS and Android devices that focuses on improving both communication and behavioral skills in both verbal and non-verbal individuals. 
Proloquo2Go is a full-featured augmentative and alternative communication solution for anyone who has difficulty speaking. 
TouchChat is an augmentative and alternative communication app, quite similar to Proloquo2Go. 
Autism Tracker Pro offers useful tracking for families that have an individual with autism. It allows you to track important items like mood, behavior, food, health, and more so that you can look at patterns, progress, and just keep track.

COMPARE EDUCATION APPS

You probably saw the title of this post and thought ‘okay there’s no friggin’ way anyone’s going to assemble a list of the best 50,000 education apps. But thanks to a partnership between Edudemic and FindTheBest, we’ve done just that. We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to build a robust directory of, as of this writing, about 56,000 education apps. But it’s not just a list… it’s a finely tuned directory capable of sorting out all the apps in ways not even available in the iTunes or Mac App stores. For example, you can now find out the average price of all education apps to see where your app falls.

Unlocking Student Data Could Lead to 'App Economy' for Colleges

College campuses are hothouses of data, including course schedules, degree requirements, and grades. But much of the information remains spread out across software systems or locked on university servers. Now a crowd of start-ups has emerged with hopes of prying out those rich data sets to build an app economy for universities—a world of new personalized services that could transform the student experience.

Google's Apps for Education and the New Privacy Policy

In late January when Google announced that it was replacing 60 different privacy policies across its multiple sites and services with a single one, you might have thought Congress had taken up SOPA and PIPA again. That’s how loud the outrage was from much of the social galaxy, as reflected in this Gizmodo headline: “Google’s Broken Promise: The End of ‘Don’t Be Evil.’” Other observers, such as Forbes “privacy pragmatist” Kashmir Hill, questioned what the big deal was; after all, she wrote, Google wasn’t changing much other than how it targets ads to users and creates new innovative services: “Using information from Gmail to suggest more appropriate YouTube videos or reminding an Android smartphone user that they have a Google calendar appointment in a half hour on the other side of town doesn’t strike me as the work of Lucifer.”

But what has been ignored in these discussions is the impact that could be felt by schools that have signed up for Google Apps for Education. Will the new privacy policy affect the agreements Google has with K-12 schools?
