Math is Harder When Using an iPad ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog

Math is Harder When Using an iPad ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog | E learning | Scoop.it

"I do not use a lot of worksheets in my math program.  So much so, that last week, I gave a worksheet during math to my grade 2 students to do and one of my students cheered.  CHEERED! For a worksheet!  I asked the child in my class why she cheered.  I figured that she would have responded with, "I like worksheets."  If she had answered that way, I would have been fine with that. I believe that we all have our own learning preferences and some children enjoy doing worksheets.  However I would never have anticipated what she said to me.  She responded with,

"I like doing worksheets better than using the iPads because I don't have to think as much.""

This infographic illustrates how SAMR may be used as a framework as we move from Education 1.0 to Education 2.0 to Education 3.0. The actual post also includes a wide variety of links to additional resources.

Have you considered using the SAMR model as you develop new curriculum or revise curriculum. As you move up SAMR (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition) Gerstein would say that Substitution and Augmentation are Education 1.0, Modification is Education 2.0 and Redefinition is Education 3.0.

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | E learning | Scoop.it

"The interest in inquiry-based learning seems to ebb and flow based on–well, it’s not clear why it ever ebbs.

 

In short, it is a student-centered, Constructivist approach to learning that requires critical thinking, and benefits from technology, collaboration, resourcefulness, and other modern learning skills that never seem to fall out of favor themselves.

 

Regardless, St Oliver Plunkett Primary School has put together two very useful images that can help you populate your iPad–or classroom of iPads–with apps that support both inquiry-based learning (the second image below), and a more general approach to pedagogy based on Apple’s uber-popular tablet (the top image)."

I’m actually writing this post by speaking it, all while in the car! The accuracy is quite good, there are rarely any mistakes if you speak clearly.

 

I’ve been using it recently for a lot of things: text messages, emails, and blogging."

Voice dictation works well if you speak slowly and clearly in short bursts and still quicker than typing. You can even speak the punctuation you require. Accuracy is very good though still good to proof read it just in case before submitting anything.

"It’s no secret that I love using QR codes in my classroom, but this year I’ve been trying to incorporate more student-created QR code activities.  I recently made an inference activity I’ve been doing for years more interactive by turning it into a student-created QR code bulletin board. 

 After having some fun with this inference riddle website, my students created their own inference riddles in a similar fashion.  I had them type their riddles in Powerpoint and then generate a QR code with their top-secret answer.  To generate the QR code, they went to QRStuff.com and clicked the “Plain Text” option.  Then they typed their answer in the text box and clicked “Download QR Code.”  The last step was to drag the QR code into their Powerpoint presentation."

6 iPad Strategies for beginners - teacherswithapps

6 iPad Strategies for beginners - teacherswithapps | E learning | Scoop.it

"I consider myself very lucky. My university years coincided with the introduction of mainframe computers. The dawn of PCs occurred when I was at my prime, and now my grandchildren are learning to use the iPad. I know from my own experience as a math teacher that the integration of new computer technology into the classroom is a complex, challenging, and daring endeavor, and also a most rewarding undertaking. Two years ago, the iPad implementation in schools was referred to as the “wave of the future”. At this very moment, the iPad in the classroom is a reality. According to Sam Gliksman, author of  iPad in Education For Dummies, “the iPad is a natural fit for education in the 21st century”. There are a lot of publications dedicated to the subject of integrating iPads into classroom. As a mathematician, a retired teacher, software engineer and the developer of iPad/iPhone/Android applications, I have given a great deal of thought to proper use of iPads in teaching, and in the school as a whole. Below is a list of my most important iPad strategies, as seen from my own perspective and from what I have read.

Creating Learning Environments - Edutopia

Creating Learning Environments - Edutopia | E learning | Scoop.it

"A while ago I witnessed students taking computer-based classes passing their tests with ease until I figured out what they were doing. They had two screens open -- one was the computer-based course and the other screen was Google, Wikipedia, or Ask Jeeves. When they ran across a question they did not know, they just looked up the answer on one of those other sites (we shut that capacity down in a jiffy).

 

This incident made me think a bit. What do teachers have to offer students when they can learn anything they want from searching it on the Internet? Why should a student sit in class (or classes) all day long when they can find all the information they need instantly? With so much knowledge everywhere, aren't we trying to sell a product they already have?"

* Can Do Attitude

* Personal Agency

* Engage in Positive Self Talk

* Belief in Ability to Solve Problems

* Belief in One’s Ability to Impact Positively on One’s Situation.

* Maintaining Perspective

* Sense of Efficacy
