The Single Most Important Factor for iPad Success in Schools

The Single Most Important Factor for iPad Success in Schools | BSD Tech Integration | Scoop.it

"When you think of iPads in schools, you probably think of a cart that's wheeled into a classroom. Youngsters cheer at the arrival of the cart. Devices are passed out, used for a lesson, and then returned to the cart. The cart is then whisked away to another classroom where the same thing happens. Having a cart of devices puts the adults in charge of the technology. If possible, I would like to see students in control. Instead of teachers worrying about syncing, battery level, and app installation, learners should manage all of that. After all, isn't that a crucial skill for living in this century?"

Classroom computers unite modalities for a student-centered education

Classroom computers unite modalities for a student-centered education | BSD Tech Integration | Scoop.it

"Not long ago, the thought of using computers in the classroom would have sounded like a science fiction fantasy. But today, technology is an integral part of our daily lives – and an increasingly significant educational tool. Widespread use of digital technology has inspired many schools to implement computer-based learning models; but even as they marvel at the possibilities posed by computer technology, teachers also face challenges when it comes to integrating such technology into a traditional classroom environment."
