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?

Institutions need mobilization strategies, othewise they will get pushed around by student demand and end up with messy uneconomic systems. Take control institutions and have your say. #Institution voice

Digital devices that can be used to assist blended learning...

 

iPads and other tablet devices have dominated technology news in recent years. This is mainly due to the unprecedented uptake of these technologies; records are still being broken. The devices have inevitably found their way into educational settings as educators globally seek ways to leverage the interest in new technology towards improved pedagogy. These devices are capable of supplementing, and often replacing, traditional desktop and laptop computers. They have the added dimension of being enabled with locative, motion, audio-visual and spatial capabilities, along with mobile multimedia capture and creation features. Multi-touch and gestural forms of input are also possible. This combination of interest and capability is driving a huge shift towards mobile learning.
