Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, September 11, 2:12 PM

Here's a feel-good article! I have seen how both tablets, laptops, and even handhelds like smartphones or iPods have been helpful for my own autistic son. I wish some of this technology had come out sooner! It's so good to see that there's some actual data to back the concept that these are invaluable tools for autistic kids, and for those with communications disabilities in general.

Merja Saarela's curator insight, September 13, 7:17 AM

I believe this is very good news for many parents struggling with communication challenges of their autistic child. Reserch results show remarkable progress especially with communication skills. So playing with the tablet seems to be very helpful for these children and their families.

Tablets fall out of favour in NSW classrooms

Tablets fall out of favour in NSW classrooms | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
Once hailed as the poster child of digital interactive learning, tablets are falling increasingly out of favour in NSW schools.
Peter Mellow's insight:

I would really like to see 'how' they used the devices in the classroom. I can see this as another case of blame the technology (device) rather than the learning design for the activities.

 

I would have thought that a device with a range of scientific instruments included in it (gyroscope, accelerometer, two cameras), would be more useful for collecting and reporting on data/events than a keyboard with a screen. Sounds like a typewriter vs an educational swiss army knife to me.

 

Do we want our children to be able to ask the right questions with inquiry based learning or be able to type 40 words a minute?

How To 'App Smash' And Implement Digital Storytelling On The iPad - Edudemic

How To 'App Smash' And Implement Digital Storytelling On The iPad - Edudemic | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

by Nikolaos Chatzopoulos

 

"App smashing, the process of using more than one apps in conjunction with one another to create a final product, is a concept that allows students to create engaging educational projects and illustrate their creativity in multifaceted ways. One of the most gratifying and effective ways to use app smashing in the classroom is to create digital storytelling projects. The concept of digital storytelling is emerging as a form of personal and collective expression of knowledge, ideas, and perceptions. Its numerous and positive effects on students’ communication skills are well documented. Digital storytelling is the perfect vehicle for the delivery of visual and audio stimuli that greatly enhance a storyline or a simple narrative."

Ms Kelleher, the school's principal, said that the focus "shouldn't be on the technology, it should always be on the learning".

 

But she said teachers can be "frustrated by the static nature of traditional textbooks. They are often expensive and out of date almost as soon as they are published."

 

Developing the digital course materials, which pupils can use at school or at home, has been "very positive" and rather than reducing the role of the teacher, she says that it makes the teacher "more important than ever".

Scotland study: Tablet devices in schools beneficial to children

Scotland study: Tablet devices in schools beneficial to children | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
The research focused on four central themes in order to evaluate the overall effectiveness of these devices in assisting with learning, and was carried out by researchers from the Technology Enhanced Learning Research group at the Faculty of Education at the University. 1. Impact of tablet devices on teaching and learning generally The study found that benefits included greater motivation, engagement, parental involvement and understanding of complex ideas. 2. Leader and management issues (stemming from a deployment of devices) The study found that teachers are ‘equally engaged’ by the use of such a device, which has a low learning curve enabling them to use it immediately as a teaching tool and a learning tool for themselves. 3. Professional development of teachers and how teachers cope with using new technology The research found that ‘use of the device is contributing to significant changes in the way teachers approach their professional role as educators and is changing the way they see themselves and their pedagogy’. 4. Parental engagement The study showed that parents become more engaged with the school and their child’s learning when the iPad travels home with the student.
