iPads in the classroom: Moving beyond the Apps - The ICT Advisors | 21st century skills | Scoop.it
iPads, iPods and other tablets are becoming more commonplace in the classroom, and schools are filling their devices with lots of Apps. Teachers could be missing valuable opportunities to truly embed the use of iPads in the classroom.

Apps are a diversion.  The core benefit of Tablets is their capacity for creative use and flexibility.

Cynthia Day's curator insight, July 27, 11:19 AM

BYOD

Martin Debattista's curator insight, August 2, 11:32 AM

Tablets in general (and not just iPads) can do much more than just provide apps 'for everything'. Teachers could be missing the wood for the trees (and lots of them!)

This page gathers all of the Bloomin' Apps projects in one place!


Each of the images has clickable hotspots and includes suggestions for
iPad, Google, Android, and Web 2.0 applications
to support each of the levels of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy.

The use of the triangle shape for Bloomin' apps projects was not used
 to help clear up the misunderstanding that the levels are hierarchical and
the top levels only make up a tiny portion of the cognitive processes.

Technology Makes Reading Better. Here's Exactly How. - Te@chThought

Technology Makes Reading Better. Here's Exactly How. - Te@chThought | 21st century skills | Scoop.it

"Reading is just the communication of ideas through alphanumeric symbols. I’m not sure what this represents such hallowed ground for teachers, but it does. Personally I’d be more concerned with reading habits, reasons for reading, the quality of reading materials, etc. Symbols change, forms change, media change. See the gif animations that demonstrate how a student feels when “bae won’t respond to them.” This is your audience, and these are the symbols they gravitate towards.

 

In the apps-for-close-reading post, I said that this “interaction” between reader and text during close reading “doesn’t require technology, but can be changed by it.” So it made sense, I thought, to guess at some ways this happens. Or should be happening, anyway.

 

With more personalization, more access, and more connectivity, we should be creating a generation of close-readers that can’t get enough. So if we’re not, the question is, why isn’t that happening? The pieces are there."

Writing Learning Objectives for MOOCs

Writing Learning Objectives for MOOCs | 21st century skills | Scoop.it

"We are learning more and more about who enrolls in Massive Open Online Classes (MOOCs) and how those students behave.  For example, Harvard and MIT recently released de-identified data from their first 16 MOOCs that ran in 2012-2013 (read more about the Harvard and MIT data setshere and access the actual data here).  The data set includes several variables relating to student activities – for example, whether students visited the course website, watched videos, or completed exams.  These types of measures can tell us a lot about what students do, but it is not clear how much they learned as a result of those actions."

Apps that rise to the top: Tested and approved by teachers

Apps that rise to the top: Tested and approved by teachers | 21st century skills | Scoop.it

With the thousands of educational apps vying for the attention of busy teachers, it can be hard to sift for the gold. Michelle Luhtala, a savvy librarian from New Canaan High School in Connecticut has crowd-sourced the best, most extensive list of appsvoted on by educators around the country.

 

“I wanted to make sure we had some flexibility because there’s no one app that’s better than all the others,” Luhtala said. Some apps are best for younger students, others are more complicated, better suited for high school students. Many apps do one thing really well, but aren’t great at everything. Still others are bought, redesigned or just disappear — so it’s always good to know about an array of tools to suit the need at hand.
