10 Simple Tips For Better Teaching With Tablets - Teachers With Apps | Apps in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"Teachers can’t escape the growing trend of technology in the classroom.  It’s more than just hype.  More schools are buying tablets for use in the classroom, with Apple’s tablet sales to the education sector doubling last year.

 

As a mobile software company whose product is used extensively in education, we dream big about the future of technology in the classroom.  We have worked with numerous great teachers who have successfully leveraged tablets to improve the learning experience for students.

This is awesome.  So much theory of teaching collides with the practice.  This could be a great way for teachers in the trenches share their experience and get genuine change in education happening.

Denise Weinhoeft-Renfro's comment, July 5, 2013 3:17 PM
This is truly a great tool in my estimation, but theory and reality also collide with technology. If you are not 1:1 then the potential of the app is not getting used in the best way that it can.
Peter Pappas's comment, July 5, 2013 3:22 PM
Good point Denise. I'm hoping it's something school will grow into over time.

Miss D's comment, August 27, 2013 9:38 PM
Note sure I agree with 'sit at a table or chair'. iPads are great because they make learning mobile. By implementing this rule, you take this away. In my classroom, you see kids scattered around the room and on the veranda outside, sitting where they feel comfortable. We just have a rule that you can't leave the iPad unattended on the floor.

A More Flexible iPad Classroom Through Apple TV - TeachThought

A More Flexible iPad Classroom Through Apple TV - TeachThought | Apps in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"

Technology has provided teachers with more tools than ever before to support a rich and personalized learning experience. 1:1 initiatives are commonplace and strategies are surfacing that clearly show how mobile devices can support instruction and learning. At the Franklin Academy High School, in Wake Forest, North Carolina, teachers and students have access to Apple TV devices to enhance the iPad initiative started over three years ago.

 

The basic operation of the Apple TV involves connecting the device to the existing organization network. With the AirPlay feature found on iPads and Apple computers, one connects in wirelessly to the Apple TV. This technology allows not only the streaming image of the iPad or airplay enabled computer, but also carries the audio signal as well. This makes for a quick way to share media that provides both the video and sound in one signal to the television or projection device."

Apps in Education: Word Clouds on the iPad

Apps in Education: Word Clouds on the iPad | Apps in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"I love word clouds. It is the best way to deconstruct a piece of text with students. It lets you start that conversation about language, text types, literacy and the power of the written word. It is also a great way to do a text analysis. Marco Torres talks about using them to compare two political speeches to analyse the types of words each of the candidates use but this idea would work just as easily with characters in a book, types of poems or even a series of artists you are studying."
