Jonathan Jarc's curator insight, December 31, 2012 10:53 AM

As more schools transition to 1:1 programs, many teachers ask for tips and strategies for using iPads in the classroom in transformative ways. Here are just a few possibilities.

Lou Salza's curator insight, January 2, 2013 6:52 PM

"The iPad is not magic, and as many educators have found integrating them meaningfully is by no means a just-add-water proposition.

The same applies to Project-Based Learning.

Project-Based Learning is a method of giving learners access to curriculum in authentic ways that promote collaboration, design, imagination, and innovation while also allowing for more natural integration of digital and social media. Below we’ve offered 23 ways that the iPad can be used in your classroom. While given strategies may or may not fit exactly into your curriculum or grade level, consider them instead as a kind of board of ideas to inspire your own thinking. If “Designing a tire” is beyond the ability of your 4th graders (and you’re certain of that), what else might they design instead? If analyzing narrative design sounds below your college freshman, what might them “consume and design” instead?

Note that the visual is also arranged in a kind of visual spectrum, as our past visuals have been. But this time, rather than being distributed by complexity, it is instead laid out in terms of the kind of workflow a learner might encounter in a 21st century, K-20, project-based learning environment."

18 Simple Ways To Make Your iPad Faster - TeachThought | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
You bought your iPad new three years ago, and now it’s getting a bit long in the tooth.

Opening apps can take forever. Sometimes they crash, stop responding, or won’t open to begin with. If you want to extend the life of your little glass rectangle–and make your iPad faster in general–the following tips can help. And all of these tips are simple(ish)–nothing crazy like jail-breaking or changing hardware.

I'd Love Disappointments like Apple's iPad Sales Figures | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
The iPad is a mature device now. It’s not on a one or two-year upgrade cycle and I’d be willing to bet my relatively meager salary that the enormously well-remunerated Cook isn’t even remotely worried.

The iPhone is still an incredible engine for growth within Apple. The iPad is still the tablet that defines how we think about all other tablets. The future of the Apple Watch is far from clear, but it appears to be fitting the company’s well-established playbook for first generation products.

In today’s post we have curated for you a collection of some wonderful iPad games to boost students critical thinking skills and enhance their cognitive abilities. Playing these games, students will be able to engage with a variety of mental and abstract forms of reasoning where they will need to use their strategic and problem solving skills to find answers. While they are so much fun to play they are also a great way to help students approach the world from a critical thinking perspective. Have a look and share with your colleagues.

Apple is making it easier for schools to put iPads in classrooms - Engadget

Apple is making it easier for schools to put iPads in classrooms - Engadget | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
Apple's dreams of putting iPads in classrooms have run into a number of roadblocks, but one of the biggest is simply the amount of work involved -- each slate needs its own account, making it a nightmare if you want to outfit an entire school. That won't be a problem for much longer, however. Both MacRumors and 9to5Mac have discovered that Apple is ditching the requirement for individual IDs on school-supplied iPads as of this fall. Staff will just have to decide which devices get apps or books, letting teachers focus on the actual education instead of getting things running. They'll still have plenty of control, so kids can't load up on games and other distractions unless they get the green light. It's too soon to know if this will lead to more kids taking home tablets instead of textbooks, but there will at least be fewer barriers to making that happen.

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

Book creator has probably been the app I have used most, in my teaching, with pupils and in my training. The blank canvas aspect means it can be used across the whole curriculum and the addition of the pen tool in the last few weeks has added to that.

 

We use Showbie at school for pupils to share their work, including books made with Book Creator from the iPads and home to the teachers for assessment. Recently, we have used both the Pen Tool and Record feature to give feedback on the pupils' eBooks. The pupils send their books using Showbie and the teacher opens them up on his/her iPad. They can then annotate with their voice, pen and text. The book can then be sent back to the pupils using Showbie. The pupil can either change the original book and delete the annotated one or change the annotated book and delete the original.

 

The screenshot shows a book of a Science experiment. The teacher can annotate with arrows but also add audio feedback. All elements of Book Creator can be deleted so the pupil can restore any annotated book to the original.

 

This is obviously not a new idea but the pen tool has certainly made this quicker in a widely used app such as Book Creator.

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.

Both apps are great storytelling apps for any classroom that uses iPads.
