iPads in Education

Innovating education with technology.

In the course of giving workshops I often need to take screen shots of apps on my iPad. They automatically get placed in the Photo library and I need a simple way of moving them to my laptop. One solution is to synchronize through iTunes. Another is to email the image. Both are rather time consuming.

 

I recently came across an app called PhotoSync that makes the whole process fast and ever so simple. Even better, the whole process is completely wireless. Here's how to do it: 

 

 

  1. You download the PhotoSync app on your iPad.
  2. Go to the PhotoSync website and download a small program to your laptop or computer. You can also install PhotoSync on multiple computers.
  3. Open the PhotoSync app and select the Photo Album of your choice on the iPad (see above).
  4. Tag the photos you want to move by touching them.
  5. Press the red icon in the top right corner when you're done. You'll be asked whether you want to transfer all the images, the new images or just the selected images. 
  6. Select the destination computer and the files are transferred wirelessly in a matter of seconds.

 

PhotoSync also works in the opposite direction. Just drag and drop images into the PhotoSync folder on your computer and you can transfer them wirelessly to your iPad. Very simple. Very fast. Very, very helpful.

Is this the Photo Sync Free for Picasa app?
No, it's PhotoSync by Touchbyte
Can't you just do the same thing now with iCloud?
I love iCloud but you need to have the account setup, compatible devices and operating systems, browsers etc... Photosync is a very quick and simple solution that works on any device or operating system.
I did a little bit more digging into the iCloud phot transfer. If you are on the Mac side you just need to add your MobileMe account to iPhoto and the new PhotoStream part of iOS 5 will drop it immediatly in your photos. If you are on the Windows side of thing you need to install the iCloud Management Software, which is free through the Apple Software Update and your pictures will show up in your pictures library. I am going to try it later.

What can work with iMovie? I have a movie made and want to share it but I don't want to use Facebook or the other options. Is there something like Drop Box?

I recently used the app Kincast to get an entire movie (vs. just a short clip) from my phone to my computer. Works Movie is delivered via email. Was very pleased with ease of use! They currently have for web and iPhone--hoping for iPad soon!

I have to try and figure out how to move and save items from an iPad from mobile carts in our district. What I've found is that I have the iPads set up to sync wirelessly and then I can either send an iMovie to iTunes or I can export it to my camera roll and upload it to any place from there. If it is in your camera roll, you will either have to have iPhoto set up to automatically sync or you will have to plug in each iPad and transfer the pictures while connected to your computer. It sounds time consuming but not as terrible as you might think.

PhotoSync will do the same on your iPad...

Thank you for this post. I recently created a digital storybook for an assignment in a Teaching with Technology class and would have found these tricks to have been very helpful! However, I am using my personal iPad and as of now, the District I work for does not have iPads for their staf and does not allow access to Their wireless network. Too bad.
