EdTech: It Isn't Optional, It's Essential [Infographic] | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"How important do you think it is for teachers to use educational technologies in the classroom? During this school year, how often do you or your students use [insert type of educational technology] in your classroom? What are the biggest challenges to integrating educational technologies in schools? These were some of the questions asked in a national online survey of teachers and administrators, conducted for Common Sense Media's Graphite by Harris Interactive in May 2013. And here are some of the answers from the survey."

Four Approaches to Getting Content OFF Elementary Students' iPads - No Email, No Problem, Part 2 ~ Free Technology for Teachers

Four Approaches to Getting Content OFF Elementary Students' iPads - No Email, No Problem, Part 2 ~ Free Technology for Teachers | digital divide information | Scoop.it

by Beth Holland

 

"As I wrote in Three Approaches for Getting Content to Elementary Students' iPads - No Email, No Problem, a major challenge of working with iPad is actually working with iPad. Unlike a computer, iPad does not function as well in a shared environment because of the challenges of workflow - getting content on and off of the devices. The lack of email, coupled with the Terms of Service that preclude those under the age of 13 from having a cloud storage account, further complicate the problem. In my first post, I outlined three potential approaches for distributing content to students without using email or logins. However the next challenge is to get the work that students create back OFF of iPad. "
