Free Technology for Teachers: 26 iBooks Author How-to Videos | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

 iBooks Author is a great tool for creating interactive ebooks. Unfortunately, creating content with iBooks Author isn't always as easy as you might hope it is. Back in June I shared a free 110 page book about using iBooks Author. However, if video tutorials are more helpful to you I have found twenty six videos that you should look at.

23 Ways To Use The iPad In The 21st Century PBL Classroom By Workflow

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."

Terry Heick: The iPad’s Past, Present & Future In Learning Environments | WiredAcademic

Terry Heick: The iPad’s Past, Present & Future In Learning Environments | WiredAcademic | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

Education has an odd reputation for both resisting change, and short-sightedly jumping on emerging edu-trends. This odd juxtaposition colors much of the school reform debate, and bleeds into its adoption of technology as well. In many schools, iPads are being used in extraordinary ways to unleash student learning, while in others it’s characterized as a luxury, lacking priority in an instructional setting where the curriculum and instruction may not considered to be up-to-snuff.
