4 Great Resources for Using iPad in Your Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

One of the wonderful Ed Tech resources I have been checking regularly is Kathy Schrock's Guide to Everything. This website features a wide variety of guides, tips, tutorials, links, presentations and many other resources related to educational technology. All the content is neatly organized into different categories ; clicking on each category will take you to a page where you will find a plethora of resources related to that category.

Jim Lerman's curator insight, July 10, 2013 5:07 PM

I think this question will eventually become almost completely moot. Voice to text software/apps are becoming more and more robust. I wrote my last book using Dragon Naturally Speaking. 

 

I believe that in a few years most writing will be done orally. Just as cursive handwriting is disappearing, keyboarding will diminish. Speed will not be as important because for large jobs, dictation will replace it. Editing and note-taking can be accomplished without so much concern for speed.

 

In the meantime, it is interesting to see that there was only negligible speed difference among the students in this study.

How To Capture Ideas at Presentations and Events by Doing Visual Recording on the iPad

Robin Good: Rachel Smith explains in very simple words how you can use your iPad to capture and record visually the key ideas and concepts presented during a lecture, keynote, training class or presentation.

She provides a good round-up of four relevant tools that can be used for this task, analyzing their key pros and cons as well as providing logistic and technical advice on how to best organize and setup yourself for doing visual recording on the iPad.

As similar tools will provide more ready-made icons, templates and patterns available for this kind of real-time idea-capturing, this rare and pioneering visual recording work will begin to catch up even more rapidly.

 

Very useful. 8/10

Manal Karnib's curator insight, April 22, 2013 6:41 AM

 iPads are an effective tool used within classrooms as it keeps students engaged with their work. Walsh (2009) discusses the affect technology is having on society as well as in the classrooms. As students are now given the opportunity to read electronically, allowing students to visually and interactively view novels through technological advancements such as iPad’s, enhances ones understanding of specific issues as it allows information to be read, listened to and comprehended in an interesting manner. Nonetheless the use of technology in the classroom does not come without opportunities as well as challenges for the teachers who use them to support learning. The main aim of the research project throughout this source was to see the effect iPads as an eBook has on students and if it has any impact on their learning. Results showed that although the students participating in the study reported an increase in engagement when using the iPad, there was not a corresponding rise in achievement. It was also seen that at times it served as a distracter and it also frustrated attempts to engage the students in “offline” discussion, suggesting there are strong implications for pedagogy. This source allows teachers to be prepared for any problems they may encounter when using iPads in the classroom as well as being able to relate to the other teachers that had mixed feelings.

 

Teaching strategies that can be implemented in the classroom with the use of iPads include having students use a range of applications that the teacher can download relating to any topic. For example when teaching Maths the teacher can resort to the range of application that teach students how to add and subtract in an engaging manner. Students can also use their iPads as an eBook and read and write about a range of books. This will ensure that all students are engaged and interacting with their work. Following on, as a form of assessment, the students can then read and write about the same book without the use of technology and have students discuss their experience with the rest of the class. Observing and recording how students respond is also an effective tool when assessing students.
