5 Critical Mistakes Schools Make With iPads (And How To Correct Them) | Reality

5 Critical Mistakes Schools Make With iPads (And How To Correct Them) | Reality | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

Focusing on iPad-versus.-laptop comparisons stifles the ability to see how the iPad facilitates student-centered learning. iPads are devices meant to compliment computers, not replace them.

So, people who seek equivalent functionality become frustrated, and fail to realize the intrinsic benefits and features of the iPad’s native design.

 

Instead, schools should focus their energies on what iPads do best to engender active learning. iPads enable students to kinesthetically connect with their work (especially important for young learners). These tactile elements – using fingers to zoom, rotate in, pinch close, or swipe across – as well as increasingly interactive and immersive apps, facilitate hands-on learning.

 

Gust MEES: DON'T forget ALSO about that the working force needs people who are FIT in Windows Computers as THE main OS is STILL WINDOWS!!!

Just think, these students don't realize that iPads are not something to be used alone. I've seen many people with their tablets/pads and a laptop complimenting/corroborating with each other.

Our schools lack iPads, but these tips may be helpful if your students use them!

David Brooks / The campus tsunami: Online education is the wave of the future, even at elite universities | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

Online education is not new. The University of Phoenix started its online degree program in 1989. Four million college students took at least one online class during the fall of 2007.

But, over the past few months, something has changed. The elite, pace-setting universities have embraced the Internet. Not long ago, online courses were interesting experiments. Now online activity is at the core of how these schools envision their futures.

The Smart Way to Use iPads in the Classroom

The Smart Way to Use iPads in the Classroom | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
The school has an unconventional take on the iPad’s purpose. The devices are not really valued as portable screens or mobile gaming devices. Teachers I talked to seemed uninterested, almost dismissive, of animations and gamelike apps. Instead, the tablets were intended to be used as video cameras, audio recorders, and multimedia notebooks of individual students’ creations. The teachers cared most about how the devices could capture moments that told stories about their students’ experiences in school. Instead of focusing on what was coming out of the iPad, they were focused on what was going into it.
Kim Flintoff's insight:

Focusses on K-12 but there are some key insights that can extend into any learning context.

The list of AirPrint enabled printers is growing but many of us just don't have one. Several app developers have jumped in to fill that void and in doing so, offer features way above and beyond simple printing from your iPad. And if you think this is only about paper based printing then think again. We'll also look at virtual printers for delivering content from an iPad to other computers, people and applications.
