Making Sense of the Apple Volume Purchase Program

Making Sense of the Apple Volume Purchase Program | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

There are several hoops a school has to go through. First, they apply and get approved by Apple. Once that happens, the bureaucratic fun begins!  The big kahuna is the Program Manager, who is in charge of purchasing “Volume Vouchers” for the school. These are elegant little cards that are physically sent to the school.

This is awesome.  So much theory of teaching collides with the practice.  This could be a great way for teachers in the trenches share their experience and get genuine change in education happening.

Denise Weinhoeft-Renfro's comment, July 5, 2013 12:17 PM
This is truly a great tool in my estimation, but theory and reality also collide with technology. If you are not 1:1 then the potential of the app is not getting used in the best way that it can.
Peter Pappas's comment, July 5, 2013 12:22 PM
Good point Denise. I'm hoping it's something school will grow into over time.

This app is similar to Geometer's Sketchpad, dynamic geometric software we use in class.  If you have access to using this app, I highly recommend it.

I use my iPad whenever I'm on the move - I can't remember when I last opened a laptop.  For those of you finding yourself in a similar situation I re-scooped this from Ana Cristina Pratas.  Some of the apps are familiar some I must try out.  Have a go and let me know how you get on with them.

Logitech intros wired iPad keyboard especially for education market

Logitech intros wired iPad keyboard especially for education market | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"As anyone who has read TUAW over the past few weeks can tell there's no shortage of IPad keyboards on the market these days. All of them tend to use Bluetooth to connect to the iPad, which is fine -- except when you're a school teacher or IT person who needs to figure out which keyboard is paired with a particular iPad. So that students can simply grab a keyboard, plug it in, and start typing away, Logitech has announced the Logitech Wired Keyboard for iPad (US$59.99, available later this year)."

Free Technology for Teachers: Four Approaches to Getting Content OFF Elementary Students' iPads - No Email, No Problem, Part 2

Free Technology for Teachers: Four Approaches to Getting Content OFF Elementary Students' iPads - No Email, No Problem, Part 2 | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"As I wrote in Three Approaches for Getting Content to Elementary Students' iPads - No Email, No Problem http://ow.ly/leG5v ; , a major challenge of working with iPad is actually working with iPad. Unlike a computer, iPad does not function as well in a shared environment because of the challenges of workflow - getting content on and off of the devices. The lack of email, coupled with the Terms of Service that preclude those under the age of 13 from having a cloud storage account, further complicate the problem. In my first post, I outlined three potential approaches for distributing content to students without using email or logins. However the next challenge is to get the work that students create back OFF of iPad. "
