TouchCast - Creating interactive video on the iPad | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it

TouchCast is an iPad app that I downloaded recently and have been exploring a bit over the last couple of weeks. It's not often an app come along which really shakes up and existing genre like video, but I think TouchCast does and in a way that can be very beneficial for learners.

iPad Research in Schools - Use and Impact of the iPad

iPad Research in Schools - Use and Impact of the iPad | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it

An in-depth study that took place in Scotland, looking at "issues associated with the deployment of personal mobile devices as tools for teaching and learning."
Four themes were identified:

* How tablet devices impacted teaching and learning?

* Leadership and management issues

* Parental engagement

* Professional development and learning for teachers

The post lists six headlines from the study, including (quoting):

* The adoption of mobile technologies on a personal basis significantly increases access to technology for students, both inside and beyond school, with many attendant benefits for learning which include greater motivation, engagement, parental involvement, and understanding of complex ideas.

 * Teachers are equally engaged by the use of a device like the iPad which has a low learning curve enabling them to use it immediately as a teaching tool and a learning tool for themselves.

For more information click through to the article. To download the report you will need to go a link at the end of the articles "iPad Scotland Evaluation."

Its easy to start but difficult to sustain. An excellent article systematically explaining the ways to make the ipad program successful in the school.

Bryan Wiedeman's curator insight, October 11, 2014 2:24 AM

This is a fantastic article about iPad use in schools. While it only discusses the use of iPads it talks about a lot of issues related to implementation. A few of my favorite points include developing simple iPad management strategies which I feel is often overlooked. Also Overcoming "There's an app for that" Syndrome which is often hard for teachers to come to terms with when they first start using tablets in classrooms. This article is perfect for a school that has already developed a plan for BYOD implementation and then needs to examine it in more detail to make sure it covers all angles.
