How to use AirDrop - iOS 7’s most important new feature for teachers - teachingwithipad.org

How to use AirDrop - iOS 7’s most important new feature for teachers - teachingwithipad.org | Classroom ICT | Scoop.it

"When Apple announced Airdrop this past June, I knew it would be a great feature for teachers with iPads. A common complaint about iPads in the classroom was that it wasn’t necessarily easy to transfer student work in the Camera Roll to the teacher. With no USB connection and no SD card slot, how was a teachersupposed to collect student work? Email would work for small files, but videos were much too large to send. Dropbox could be a solution, but that would require students to set up their own accounts, problematic if they are under a certain age. Enter AirDrop, a seamless and very quick way to transfer files via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections between “nearby” devices."

Airdrop is such a great feature for collecting student work.

This may be an easy way to transfer student work from one device to another, rather than using Dropbox.  It does need iOS 7 to work properly, though.

Via Airdrop delen is wel heel gemakkelijk

If you have heard about the hour of code, I hope you saw this coming from the title. If you don't know about the hour of code, it is time. Code.org wants to support everybody everywhere in learning to code. They are organizing all kinds of people to create tutorials that can be used in schools to get kids coding, even if it is just for a one hour guided activity

How 3-D printing will radically change the world

How 3-D printing will radically change the world | Classroom ICT | Scoop.it

Thanks Susan! Great Post to peruse

Stephen Dale's curator insight, May 30, 3:16 AM

From the article: "3-D printing technology is advancing at a staggering rate. American designers are now working on 3-D printed cars, while in China andHolland, 3-D printers are building entire houses. The first 3-D printed hamburger was recently created in England, heralding the possibility of a man-made food supply."


But...


The hype over 3-D printing, say technology experts, ignores the potential problems it will create. One significant problem is the legality and ethical ramifications of widespread public use. Right now, additive manufacturing (the technical term for 3-D printing) is in its "Wild West" phase, meaning, the laws have not yet caught up with the technology.

 

An example of this is 3-D printed guns. Last year, blueprints for a 3-D-printable gun, The Liberator, were posted online and downloaded some 100,000 times before the State Department ordered them taken down.


So...it's going to be a while before you can use a 3D printer to print you some new followers on social media networks...but watch this space!

Don’t use technology.… Do use technology.… - Mark Anderson's Blog | Classroom ICT | Scoop.it

"Don’t get me wrong – given my Twitter ID it’s a given that I believe very strongly in using technology to support and enhance learning. The OED states that an evangelist is “a person who seeks to convert others to the Christian faith, especially by public preaching”, so ok… I might not be doing the Christian faith bit, but as an ‘ICT Evangelist’ I do believe that technology has the power to change our world and certainly the learning that takes place in our classrooms and beyond.

 

There’s a problem though. There is a dichotomy of experiences, skills, beliefs and abilities when it comes to using technology in our classrooms. It’s written in to the United States Declaration of Independence that, “all men are born equal”, but it’s certainly not true when it comes to the experiences that our students receive in their lessons at the hands of some of our teachers and that’s before you even think about entering technology into the equation."

How to Block Access to Adult Content & Websites on iPhone & iPad

How to Block Access to Adult Content & Websites on iPhone & iPad | Classroom ICT | Scoop.it

"Apple has long included various means of placing parental controls and filtering for content available on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, but up until recent iOS updates there was not a simple method of blocking web-based adult content and material in Safari. That has changed with iOS 7, which makes it extremely easy to prevent access to adult themed web sites and general content that is deemed inappropriate for youth. The web restrictions are very easy to toggle on and off and access to them is password restricted, which makes it perfect to quickly turn on before handing an iOS device off to a youngin’ for unsupervised use."

Do Teachers Need iPad Training? - Edudemic

Do Teachers Need iPad Training? - Edudemic | Classroom ICT | Scoop.it

"We have come to a point in the education technology journey where it seems rather dull to still be asking if the iPad is the right device for the classroom. The answer, in case you’ve missed the last few years of debate is that it is a great option, but this is not universally accepted and never will be. Nonetheless, one of the attributes you’ll hear put forward is that it is easy to use because of the intuitive nature of iOS. This is absolutely true; you can put the iPad into the hands of almost any child and within a short period of time they will have mastered it.

 

So does it then follow that you can out the iPad into the hands of teachers and expect the same results?

 

No."

Very true - PD is necessary and needs to keep coming back to 'what is best practice'. It is not about the iPad, it is about the learning that is taking place.
Kim Flintoff's curator insight, August 10, 7:16 PM
The emphasis on iPads is a bit of a distraction here - the issue is related more to the ability of teachers to create engaging learnng opportunities where technology use extends and enhances the students' capacity for self-direction, information literacy, collaboration. culural awareness, etc... be it with an iPad or other ICT, the point is that too many teachers still rely on delivery and control, rather than authentic opportunities for learning.

Technology Makes Reading Better. Here's Exactly How. - Te@chThought

Technology Makes Reading Better. Here's Exactly How. - Te@chThought | Classroom ICT | Scoop.it

"Reading is just the communication of ideas through alphanumeric symbols. I’m not sure what this represents such hallowed ground for teachers, but it does. Personally I’d be more concerned with reading habits, reasons for reading, the quality of reading materials, etc. Symbols change, forms change, media change. See the gif animations that demonstrate how a student feels when “bae won’t respond to them.” This is your audience, and these are the symbols they gravitate towards.

 

In the apps-for-close-reading post, I said that this “interaction” between reader and text during close reading “doesn’t require technology, but can be changed by it.” So it made sense, I thought, to guess at some ways this happens. Or should be happening, anyway.

 

With more personalization, more access, and more connectivity, we should be creating a generation of close-readers that can’t get enough. So if we’re not, the question is, why isn’t that happening? The pieces are there."

This could be nice to plan or summarise a story, for reading or listening comprehension with students. Or for reviewing the stages of a task, or process (perhaps a process, for passive grammar). In teacher training it could be an option for self-observation, reviewing the stages of a lesson and how it went.

"So congrats you've got your new iPad and can't wait to start using it. I know excitement and curiosity to discover newly bought things particularly electronic gadgets makes us want to learn everything about them quickly. Unfortunately it does take a little time and practice ( usability) to get yourself pretty familiar with your iPad. My advice is to start with  some " how to " video tutorials " available on YouTube and get yourself acquainted with the different specs in your iPad. Now comes the second task which is that of searching for and selecting the apps to install. I compiled the list below featuring some of the fundamental apps you should start with."

I actually use most of these apps daily; specifically Evernote, Gmail, Kindle and Dropbox. Although I have the Nook app, I have yet to use it, which may account for it missing from the list of ten.

The Penultimate app seemed intriguing so I've downloaded it, and will kick the tires to se whether or not it stays in my app collection.

 

This listed collection is pretty good, but I wonder what others consider to be their top ten essential apps for the iPad?
