Using Technology in the Classroom: 15 Ways to Use an iPad in Middle & High Schools

Using Technology in the Classroom: 15 Ways to Use an iPad in Middle & High Schools | BYOD iPads | Scoop.it

"I have had the privilege of being able to plough new ground in my classroom with a class set of iPads. I now have over a year of experience in using them with my students everyday. Over that time I have had alot of trial, error and troubleshooting. But now into my second year I have the benefit of being familiar with iPads strengths and weaknesses. All of the apps in my list of 15 Ways to Use an iPad are ones that I have used with students."

"Bancroft School is an independent K-12 day school located in Worcester, MA. In the spring of 2011 Bancroft made the decision to become a 1:1 iPad school in grades 6 - 12. Students are strongly recommended to come to school with an iPad for the 2011-2012 school year. Students will be required to come to school with an iPad for the 2012-2013 school year. Students receiving 80% or more financial aid will be a provided an iPad by the school."

iPads improving learning – what the research tells us

"I was at an event at a school the other day running hands on iPad sessions for parents and I was challenged to prove that students using iPads would improve learning. This was a tough call on the spot and given the fact ICT has not been proven to have a positive quantitative impact on learning yet – despite the best efforts of Becta.

I did point to the Essa Academy’s success with its GCSE results but this did not cut much ice. I therefore started doing some research. I hope this is of some use – to really understand what these studies have uncovered you will need to follow the links."
