Learning and Teaching with iPads: Developing iPad learning workflows for best learning outcomes

Learning and Teaching with iPads: Developing iPad learning workflows for best learning outcomes | BYOD iPads | Scoop.it

Rethinking the approach to learning with an iPad was one of the key points that arose from our recent iPad study tour in Queensland.
Many of the schools talked about the development of 'Learning Workflows' where work is created in one app, then built on in another App and so on.


Using the iPad where many Apps are generally single function, requires a different approach to create useful learning outcomes that moves the integration of the iPad in learning from the Subsitution model to the Redefinition model.

Learning Analytics 101: What To Expect When Data Enters The Classroom | Edudemic

Learning Analytics 101: What To Expect When Data Enters The Classroom | Edudemic | BYOD iPads | Scoop.it

There’s a big push to figure out what’s working in education. Whether its a fancy new app or an interesting new classroom setup, it’s hard to figure out what works until you try it.That’s where education data comes in. We’re hard at work on gathering a lot of education data every day so we can help figure out what you should try and what you should avoid.

Lots of things happened since the last time I guest posted about learning analytics on Edudemic. One of the most popular questions I received was, “Exactly how will it all work?”

"Educators seeking professional-development opportunities these days can choose from a vast menu of technology-related options that range from bite-size to entrée. But those who create and use this type of PD say they're still struggling with how to officially recognize teachers' efforts, particularly when it comes to the small-dose, on-demand versions available."

The 13 MUST Know Professional Development Websites for Teachers | BYOD iPads | Scoop.it

Professional Development is a life-long learning process that involves different activities including individual progress, continuing education, inservice education, peer collaboration, study groups, and peer coaching or mentoring. The importance of professional development lays in the fact that it is closely related to the overall quality of education and students achievements. Teachers who stop learning and suffice themselves with the curriculum content soon turn into hard working students only a step above their actual students.

What’s been your most valuable professional-development experience?

Come on, there’s got to be one! I want you to think about what made it meaningful for you. The time where you left feeling excited to try something new and jump in feet first. You felt like you were ready to conquer the world and couldn’t wait to impart this new practice/knowledge to your students.

Was it one thing? A combination of things? Was it the facilitator? Another attendee you connected with?
