This will be good to share at the beginning of the year. I think it will reassure some teachers, and light a fire under others:)

Interesting insight into how iPads are being used in schools and the impact they are making both positive and negative. I challenge teachers to look at this article and identify all the different teaching and learning ideas there are and how they could apply or adapt them in their classrooms.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 19, 2014 8:51 PM

This Technology Integration Matrix from Arizona allows educators to determine their level of technology integration: entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion and transformation with "five interdependent characteristics of meaningful learning environments:active, collaborative, constructive, authentic, and goal directed" creating a matrix.

Each cell provides two lesson plans, focusing on two these three grade ranges: K - 4, 5 - 8 or 9 - 12. Although the lesson plans are written for Arizona Common Core Standards are also referenced so others may find valuable information within this matrix. This site takes you to the interactive version that provides the lesson plans. A pdf version is also available at http://www.azk12.org/tim/docs/AZK1031_Matrix_Print.pdf.

What Teachers Need to Know about 1:1 Vs BYOD ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

What Teachers Need to Know about 1:1 Vs BYOD ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | BYOD iPads | Scoop.it
BYOD and 1:1 are two popular trends in today's educational system. The common thing between these two trends is that they are both technology-induced, that is based on, applied to, and came about as a direct result of the wider uptake of digital technologies. Also both of these trends aim at a better integration and a wider access to technology within formal educational settings. In fact, there are several pros and cons to each option and the visual below outlines some of the major differences between these two approaches in terms of costs, equality, compatibility, and maintenance. This comparison, however, should not be viewed as favouring one option on the other the decision of which one to use is contingent on different factors including the context, infrastructure, purposes, and teaching/learning needs of each school. What is BYOD ? Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is often used interchangeably with other acronyms such as BYOT (Bring Your own Technology), BYOPC ( Bring your Own PC), BYOP ( Bring Your Own Phone). The essence of BYOD revolves around encouraging and permitting students to bring their own personally-owned electronic gadgets to class. What is 1:1 ? One to one computing (1:1) is a strategy pursued by several educational institutions which aims at equipping each student with an electronic device( laptops, tablets, smart phones…etc) that will allow them to access digital course materials (textbooks and online learning content). The benefits of 1:1 computing include : " equal access, standardization, easy upgrade, simple networking, the ability to monitor student progress and online behaviour. "

Might contest choral style of apps in 1:1 vs whole globe of apps with from multi-platform BYOT.  

 

Additionally, few 1:1 are not also BYOT for those focused on student options and creativity.

Goodbye Cursive~Hello Coding: Conflicts over School Goals

Goodbye Cursive~Hello Coding: Conflicts over School Goals | BYOD iPads | Scoop.it
Schools as "museums of virtue"* and schools as engines of change have been dominant and conflicting metaphors in the history of school reform. Public schools are not only expected to instill the traditional three Rs and socialize children into dominant societal values but also expected to be responsible for the “whole child” and change society for the better.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 19, 2014 6:38 PM

I took away that we need to consider a broad overhaul of School to make it a holistic teaching and learning process for teachers and students. Larry Cuban points out that there is no evidence that teaching other languages, unless they are used extensively, helps students be more creative through transfer. Having taught French at various times, I would agree. Students have to find immediate usage. What it means to teach the "whole child" is something important to consider at the classroom level and allow that to inform changes.

Is your district considering mobile learning? If so this guide and infographic may be helpful as you begin the planning. Both are available free of charge. The guide provides best practices, resources and outlines. The infographic is split into three sections.

* Planning

* Implementing

* Continually Improving

Within each section you will find:

* A Common  Mistake

* What to Do

* Pitfalls

You may find that the infographic provides sufficient information or you may want the detail included in the guide. Links to both are found in the post.
