The iPad as a Tool for Creation to Strengthen Learning

We don’t want iPads to just become replacements for notebooks and textbooks, we want them to be objects to think with. We want students using them to mess around with the world around them and their courses of study.

iFought the iPads (and iWon)

iFought the iPads (and iWon) | BYOD | Scoop.it
When Rapid City Public Libraries decided to add iPads to the Children's Area, I volunteered for the project. In the end this project took me a couple of months to tackle but the number of children using the iPads made it worth the effort. I hope by sharing my experience I can alleviate some frustration and confusion on how to successfully set up iPad displays for young children. Staff quickly decided to focus on iPads and not a generic tablet, partially because of the brand familiarity of Apple products, and also because the iPad had a better and more intuitive touch interface. When we received our 2nd generation iPads I had to make a series of decisions concerning security, apps, and settings. Although the newest trend is lending devices, that wouldn't work with our target audience of children ages 2-10. One of the reasons we decided to go with tablets was that children from lower income households may not have the opportunity to use mobile devices or a form of tablets before going to school, creating a disadvantage. Plus, limiting lending to only active card holders (who would have to sign a waiver to replace the iPad if broken) would deny children visiting or on vacation from having a chance to use them.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 14, 9:21 PM

This infographic is designed for college, but in fact the rules apply to students of all ages. Teaching students how to be good citizens online is a component of digital citizenship. The 15 rules in the infographic are wise to follow not only on online discussion boards, but may be considered a foundation to build your digital identity, tattoo, footprint...you choose the word that works best for you.

With younger students we may need to modify some language or introduce the rules over a period of time, helping them to learn just what good netiquette is.
