How has your instruction changed with tablet technology in the classroom?

Khaled Alkaabi's curator insight, March 20, 2013 8:41 AM

I remember when I was going to primary school, I had to bring many heavy textbooks with me. Imagine how good it is to replace all those 10kg books with a light and small Ipad.

Transform Your School: Practical Tips for Starting a Makerspace @DIANARENDINA

"Makerspaces are an amazing way to bring STEAM, creativity and informal learning into your school, but with so much information out there, many educators aren’t sure of where to get started. In this session, you will get ideas and inspiration on how to bring the Maker Education Movement into your school. Topics covered will include: cultivating a Maker culture, getting student input, finding space, securing funds and donations, gathering supplies, making it happen, and sharing with others. Throughout the presentation, you will see examples from the creation of our school’s library Makerspace, as well as examples from other schools."

“Attendance is up, disturbances are down, and kids are actually taking care of their high-tech school supplies.”Apple: IPads In High-Poverty Maryland Classrooms Help Advance Students.In its blog “The Switch,” the Washington Post (11/18, Tsukayama) reports on a new promotional video from Apple, showcasing the use of iPads by every student and teacher at four high-poverty middle schools in Prince George’s County, Maryland. The video focuses on Buck Lodge Middle school, where students use video, presentations, and educational software daily; 400 Buck Lodge students are permitted to take their tablets home, with the school seeing few drawbacks, better attendance, and decreases in behavioral problems. Apple reports that 175% more students at Prince George’s schools are at “advanced” math levels compared to similar schools without iPads, while 35% more reached an “advanced” reading level.

"I am starting to see the light… and somewhat emerging from the fog of iPad enrollment and technical logistics. After a full weekend of ACL (yes, the TechChef does find time to enjoy in the Austin music scene), I spent half a day with Randolph ISD sharing some timely tips for managing iPads in the classroom. As I am never one to hoard resources and I imagine that there our other teachers and districts that might benefit from some tried and true management techniques, I thought I would crank out a blog to share these with the greater edusphere."

The 4 Stages of Technology Integration: Supporting Student Growth

The 4 Stages of Technology Integration: Supporting Student Growth | BYOD iPads | Scoop.it
The 4 Stages of Technology Integration: Supporting Student Growth. New methods of using technology in the classroom can be adopted, but they don’t necessarily need be. Instead, technological integration in the classroom takes place along a sliding scale, a spectrum of integration. That spectrum is summarized with the letters SAMR, which stands for Substitution, Augmentation,Modification, and Redefinition. These represent four different degrees of technological integration into learning, from slightly supplementing instruction to completely redefining what it means to teach.

"While we are told how important it is to go 1:1 in schools, this study shows that claim is not fully believed by all of the school's stakeholders. Tech integration is pushed heavily by the ed tech companies and curriculum powerhouses that make tech-compatible material, however, whether people actually believe it will make the most positive difference is something else."

That the arts score high is interesting since that is one of the first items to be cut in a tight school budget.  Maybe we are getting into a national discussion of what the purpose of education is:  To educate well rounded individuals, or to educate career competent adults and maturity and character are to be obtained elsewhere?  -Lon

"From September, coding will be part of the primary and secondary education curriculum in the UK, as part of wider changes designed to boost computer literacy alongside reading, writing and maths skills for British children.

Some independent schools are already providing a glimpse at the potential. Which is why I recently found myself in Cambridge, watching a classroom of Year 5 girls – 9-10 year-olds – practising their programming skills on iPad apps like Hopscotch, Move the Turtle and Kodable."

And since iPad is a leitmotif in today's learning, its alignment with SAMR model will definitely assist teachers in making the most of the educational potential of this versatile device.

This post links to a video by Paul Hamilton, Technology in Education. In this 4 minute video Hamilton asks 8 questions that we may want to share with our community, be it our staff, our parents, or the broader community, to begin a dialogue that is lacking in many school districts. Three of the questions he raises are below. Take the time to click through to the post to read the other 5, and if possible find the time to watch this video.

* What do we ant technology to do in schools?

* Are we asking the right questions about technology, learning, and schools?

* Is the way we are using technology now turning our students 'off' to the people and the world around them?
