Honored to be a expert who participate in NMC Horizon Report Europe 2014 Schools Edition hwo just was released. My reflections after this awesome experience .

The NMC Horizon Report Europe outlines key trends, challenges and technological developments that are likely to have an impact on school education systems. The Horizon Report Europe: 2014 Schools Edition was produced by the European Commission in cooperation with a team led by Inholland University of Applied Sciences (the Netherlands) and the New Media Consortium (NMC), a US-based non-profit group bringing together international experts in educational technology. It builds on the NMC Horizon Report series and methodology, as well as studies by the Commission's Joint Research Centre on the future of learning, such asFutLearn and MATEL. The partnership’s goal for this major multiorganizational collaboration is that the key trends, challenges, and technological developments detailed here directly inform policy, leadership, and practice at all levels impacting European schools. 

How were the technologies, trends and challenges in the report selected?
The report covers 18 topics including new technologies like cloud computing, flipped classroom, MOOC, mLearning using ipad and tablets in education, trends such as the growing use of social media, and challenges for schools such as the need to improve digital skills and competences. The themes were selected by the Horizon Project Europe Expert Panel, comprised of 53 specialists in European education, technology and other fields. The experts come from 22 European countries as well as international organisations and networks. I had the pleasure because Larry Johnson invited me to be European expert, the single teacher from Romania who participate in this awesome experience .

#ipad in #education to #mlearning after 4 years. Top 100 #notebook #ipad apps to share knowledge after #iste2014

Dear friends like I write in my blog in previous year, your comments and feed-back is welcome.    I rediscover last year more than 100 edtools , ipad apps using #iste13 hastag but now  when is  organized #iste2014 I @LucianeCurator will launch in 1 august #startupeuchat (a chat for european startup tools and ipad apps ) organized weekly, 1 hour,  friday from 7 p.m to 8 p.m  Bucharest time and I will share here in my blog Top 100 startupEU tools every mounth  like you can see down of this page . In my previous post here I describe #iste2014. 
  Since 4 years now, a revolution has been taking place in software development when 1st Ipad by Apple was relased on 3 april 2010 and since then this mobile device evolve and now are more than 1 Milion apps in Apple store, most of them are free and for this reason every day this mounth I will share in my blog Top 10 ipad apps in all of kind of categories . With iPad in Education , your classroom materials go way beyond the classroom. Discover over 65,000 apps just for education, interactive books on every subject, and speeches, virtual tours, and videos from experts and institutions around the world. Extending of mobile devices in Europe presents an opportunity for those concerned with education to explore their potential for mobile learning – learning facilitated by mobile technologies ( Learning in hand )– to enhance education. This highlights a missed opportunity for educators and policymakers, as mobile telephones – especially windows phones, iphones, ipads, smartphones, – can be equally powerful learning tools that are significantly less expensive than other devices like laptops and tablets, promoting BYOD ( bring your own device ). According to a September 2013 report from Gartner, over 102 billion apps were downloaded worldwide in 2013; 90% of those apps free. Simple but useful apps have found their way into almost every form of human endeavour, and a popular app can see millions of downloads in a very short time. The huge market for apps has spawned a flood of creativity that is instantly apparent in the extensive collections available in the app stores. Online app marketplaces provide an easy and highly efficient way to deliver software that reduces distribution and marketing costs significantly. Mobile apps are particularly useful for learning as they enable people to learn and experience new concepts wherever they are, often across multiple devices. People everywhere, but especially in Europe, increasingly expect to be constantly connected to the Internet and the rich tapestry of knowledge it contains wherever they go. According to the 2013 “ICT Facts and Figures” report, Europe enjoys the highest Internet penetration rate in the world (75%). The mobile penetration rate in Europe is at 1.26, meaning most Europeans carry more than one mobile device — 30% higher than the global rate, and multiple studies document that when people access the Internet they are most likely to do so with their personal device. London-based research firm CONTEXT reported that in the first half of 2013, tablet sales increased by 137% across Europe, with the Central and East European region one of the strongest growing markets worldwide. The unprecedented evolution of these devices and the apps that run on them has opened the door to myriad uses for education. Learning institutions all over the world are adopting apps into their curricula and modifying websites, educational materials, resources, and tools so they are optimised for mobile devices. The significance for teaching and learning is that these devices have the potential to facilitate almost any educational experience, allowing learners to organise virtual video meetings with peers all over the world, use specialised software and tools, and collaborate on shared documents or projects in the cloud, among many other things. In contrast to how mobile devices are used for learning, traditional ICT-based learning seems oddly place-bound.
What notebook ipad app I should add to the list ?
