iPads in the classroom: Moving beyond the Apps - The ICT Advisors

iPads in the classroom: Moving beyond the Apps - The ICT Advisors | Psychology & Education | Scoop.it
iPads, iPods and other tablets are becoming more commonplace in the classroom, and schools are filling their devices with lots of Apps. Teachers could be missing valuable opportunities to truly embed the use of iPads in the classroom.

Tablets in general (and not just iPads) can do much more than just provide apps 'for everything'. Teachers could be missing the wood for the trees (and lots of them!)

Not all post are good for any platform. Here is a guide. I don't see Pearltrees or Scoop.it which are two curating sights I use often. I don't see curating listed at all so or LiveBinders or Linkedin...The list is pretty good but far from complete.

50 Resources For Teaching With iPads - Te@chThought

50 Resources For Teaching With iPads - Te@chThought | Psychology & Education | Scoop.it
So we thought we’d start an ongoing collection–that is, one that is updated to reflect trends and changes–of the best resources for teaching with the iPad.

This will include resources from all of the best sources, from Apple’s own stuff to TeachThought to edutopia to MindShift to DMLCentral to Jackie Gerstein and more. We can update it, or make it a wiki to crowdsource the process, or you can add suggestions in the comments below. Based on the activity of the comments, and the sharing of the post, we’ll decide how to handle it moving forward.

Lots of good articles!

Brian Romero Smith's curator insight, October 15, 2014 2:27 PM

Great resource for a 1:1 iPad classroom/school. However, this is a great model for any 1:1 setup. You truly need to consider the Teacher/Student/Parent paradigm when deciding on applications that enhance the learning environment. Where there is not workflow vision the people will perish. 

Willem Kuypers's curator insight, March 9, 2:40 AM

Je crois toujours que les tablets sont le futur pour l'enseignement supérieur. Un des problèmes sont de trouver les outils qui servent vos objectifs pédagogiques. Cette article peut aider.

Are You Teaching Content Or Teaching Thought? -

Are You Teaching Content Or Teaching Thought? - | Psychology & Education | Scoop.it

"Thinking is troublesome.  For one, it is an intimate act splicing time and space. It is done right here, but it spans moments in the pasts and reaches out uncertainly towards moments in the future. Put another way, you think in a singular, precise space about plural, imprecise times.

It also resists uniformity (and education loves uniformity). Thought hinges on schema (familiar forms and patterns we then impose unfamiliar data to make sense of it), and emotion (in part, our internal response to the former). It is as diverse as character, experience, and affection. It’s like defining art, establishing criteria for beauty, or causing love.  And whether it knows it or not, education has a thinking problem."

What is your primary goal as a teacher?  Do you teach social studies or do you teach students?  While this may feel like we are splitting hairs, the distinction is an important one that is at the at the heart of your own pedagogical approach.  This is some nice food for thought on the topic to reflect on how and why you teach.

We Are Just Not Here Anymore

We Are Just Not Here Anymore | Psychology & Education | Scoop.it
Can we learn to reconnect without using our digital devices?

 

At weddings, guests tweet real-time of the festivities to friends far away. At sporting events, fans follow scores of games in other cities. In classrooms, students text with friends in other classes and parents out in the world. At funerals, mourners to pals in other places.

Everyone, it seems, is interacting more with people who are elsewhere — and less with the people around them. As technology seeps through society, dampening every dry aspect of our lives, something is happening to: the idea of being present; the desire to be in the moment; the notion of living right here and right now.
