How can a instructor adapt video creation projects inside the classroom?  Well with the correct tips and tricks to a modernized technological educational era, here are a couple of examples into implementing these type of projects.  The utilization of mobile devices and technology within the classroom comes hand in hand with the use of tools that are used to create new material.  There are free tools all over the internet or there are tools with a cost.  This article lists several amazing tools, but also lets the reader know different forms of using these.  As technology advances, we must keep up to date, not only for our students but to understand how different the ways of learning are now a days.  Focusing on the skill learning of the students.

How to Incubate Creativity in School Through Making and Discovery

How to Incubate Creativity in School Through Making and Discovery | BYOD iPads | Scoop.it
“ The makerspace in one inner-city school is helping infuse hands-on learning into all core classes.”

Sixth-grade students at Lighthouse Community Charter in Oakland, California, eagerly pull laptops off a cart and settle down with a partner to experiment with Turtle Art, a program meant to introduce them to the basics of programming and some math concepts.

Math teacher Laura Kretschmar gave students a rubric with specific goals around collaboration, communication and instructions to use various functions in the program, but not a lot else. She’s intentionally giving them a lot of freedom to play with the program, create cool designs and figure out what the functions do.

“I think “y” means, like, going up,” says Juritzy Maldonado. “So to pull it up, I’m going to try to change the number.” She punches in 200 for “y” and watches the image she’s creating shift upward. Another group discovers that if they hit “repeat” multiple times, they can create a parachute-like design that they’ve figured out how to color in various ways. That wasn’t their original plan, but they’re running with it now.

‘Our goal is not to create more scientists and engineers; it’s to leave doors open for kids.’

“Pretty much everything we were doing is trying one-by-one and seeing what we got, and then we put them all together,” said Guadalupe Pena. She and her partner realize they haven’t used a crucial function to set “xy” but they’re not worried. “We still don’t know how to use [it] very well,” Guadalupe admits. “Since we’ve already got everything written down, we can take the risk to make it to see what it does to our parachute.”

Why teachers struggle to harness the learning potential of the iPad

Why teachers struggle to harness the learning potential of the iPad | BYOD iPads | Scoop.it
“Over the last 100 years in teaching, how much has changed? Could you take a teacher from 1915 and drop them into a modern classroom? Apart from the strange haircuts and unfamiliar clothes they’d barely notice the difference, because the majority of school is still lecture driven. The teacher stands at the front, disseminating knowledge to the students. Now undertake the same scenario but with a surgeon. Bring a surgeon forward 100 years and it’s a different story. In a modern operating room our time traveller would be overwhelmed with sights and sounds. This is because technology has revolutionised surgery.”

Santos Arturo Gamez's curator insight, October 7, 2015 3:58 AM

Technology should be a tool to enhance education, and not to replace it.  It is time to put off to the side any "scary" predictions of using technology inside the classroom.  It is important for the teachers of today not to be afraid of their students knowing more from technology than they do, but learn how to administer lessons, communication and collaboration using this technology.  This report will indicate important points of view for those who are going through this and how to initiate engagement in the students.

I agree with your insight about life-long learning for teachers too, Nik. I also strongly stress this fact:  

"This means iPads shouldn’t scare you. They should excite you, because in that device you have literally hundreds of lessons waiting to be delivered. It’s a bold step to embrace the unknown, but your role as teacher is more valued than ever. Students may appear iPad experts in class, but they possess no framework to further their own learning. Without the right guidance, the iPad is only potential."

Constructive Use of the iPad in the Humanities Classroom – One Teacher’s Experience — Emerging Education Technologies | BYOD iPads | Scoop.it

"Our high schoolers each have iPads, as do all instructors. During my second year at Thales, I taught two 9th grade humanities courses (ancient literature and ancient history). The freshmen were brand new to the iPad as their main tool of education, and I was equally new to the problems and successes of the iPad in the humanities classroom. The question remained: How to integrate the iPad into my classroom in way in which it was helpful and not a hindrance?"

Integrating Mobile Devices such as (iPads) into the classroom could be a challenge for traditional education.  Knowing methods of implementing material and formatting a course using technology tools to facilitate the process is one of the many ways to transition into the paradigm shift in education.  Many examples like this one can help instructors find out more ways to use this in their classroom.
