50 Apps for the Foreign Language Classroom - teachingwithipad.org | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

"I enjoy discussing iPad and other edtech resources with my colleague and friend Sylvia Duckworth almost every week through Twitter. Sylvia is a leader in the French teaching community in Canada, and has created an enormous amount of resources for language teachers to use. I asked her if she wanted to collaborate on this post, and she quickly agreed to do so. Below is a list of iPad apps that we both use in our language classrooms. The ones marked with an * are the essential, must-have ones. We have divided the list into two categories: Content consumption apps and content creation apps."

Learning and Teaching with iPads: Developing iPad learning workflows for best learning outcomes

Learning and Teaching with iPads: Developing iPad learning workflows for best learning outcomes | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Rethinking the approach to learning with an iPad was one of the key points that arose from our recent iPad study tour in Queensland.
Many of the schools talked about the development of 'Learning Workflows' where work is created in one app, then built on in another App and so on.
Using the iPad where many Apps are generally single function, requires a different approach to create useful learning outcomes that moves the integration of the iPad in learning from the Subsitution model to the Redefinition model.

A very useful explanation with some practical examples of how to achieve a learning workflow in your classroom can be found in this article.

Good stories are like springboards that set off the reader’s imagination into a realm of co-creation, where the the story evokes personal tales from the reader. These intertwine and lead to richer, memorable story experiences.

10 Steps to a Successful School iPad Program

10 Steps to a Successful School iPad Program | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

iPads have certainly become a highly desired commodity in education. Apple is reporting that schools are purchasing iPads by a ratio of 2:1 over MacBooks. However, that rush to purchase the latest technologies often precedes the careful planning and preparation that’s crucial to their success as educational tools.

Stated simply, technology alone doesn’t have the capacity to improve education. It needs to be woven into a holistic approach to education that encompasses thorough planning and ongoing review of the skills and competencies required by the rapidly changing society that characterizes life in the 21st century.
