This is a very useful article. Well worth a read if you are trying to change pedagogy around using mobile devices. 

Jamie Dammann's curator insight, October 25, 2015 8:57 PM

Technology: I chose this resource because we are currently in the process of rolling out a pilot program at one of our schools where tablets will be implemented into all the classrooms for every student. I like how this article talks about moving beyond apps and how they can be used successfully.

8 Steps To Flipped Teacher Professional Development - te@chthought

8 Steps To Flipped Teacher Professional Development - te@chthought | Education | Scoop.it
"The idea here isn’t simply that educators can improve by connected through social networks–they already are doing that. Rather, that schools can decentralize the teacher training effort by cutting them loose and supporting their self-directed efforts through an array of resources. The purpose of this post, beyond clarifying some how social media-driven and self-directed teacher professional development might work, is to offer some (mostly) concrete ideas for actually getting started designing such a program in your school or district. We would love to hear any suggestions in the comments because, well, that’d be social of you."

"Many of us using technology in the classroom find ourselves caught between two worlds: Apple and Google. Apple’s iPad is a fantastic tool in the classroom which provides students with various opportunities to consume, create, and communicate. Similar to a swiss-army knife, it is only limited by how we choose to use it. At the same time, Google apps provide students with cloud-based services, from search to document creation and sharing, that work seamlessly on iPad."

5 Ways Kids Can Make Their Own Movies With A Smartphone - MakeUseOf.com

"Spielberg crashed his toy trains. Michael Bay blew his toy trains up. Either way, people who grow up and become multi-million-dollar directors all started when they were just kids. I remember when I got my first camera: it was a Quasar VHS-C camcorder (placed in a Barbie camcorder box by my parents, who thought it was utterly hilarious). My first “film” was a stop-motion piece about G.I. Joes fighting a remote-controlled rat in our family kitchen. Had I access to a device that shot, edited, and distributed my mini-films… I would have been in heaven. Fortunately, such a device exists today: it’s your smartphone. Now whether or not you have chosen to give your child a smartphone, it’s possible to at least allow them access to it as a means for creative expression. Below are five ways to do just that!"

12 Apps That Should Be On Elementary School iPad - te@chthought

12 Apps That Should Be On Elementary School iPad - te@chthought | Education | Scoop.it
"So this collection wasn’t as easy to curate as it’d seem. It wasn’t a matter of simply choosing the best apps across content areas–math, science, social studies, etc. The title says “every iPad,” which seems to imply universal needs. Every. iPad. Same with age and grade level, reading level, and gender. So we took at look at apps that could be used in any content area, and at (almost) any grade level K-5. (Phonics Genius likely wouldn’t be as necessary in later elementary grades as it might in K-3, for example.) The focus is on literacy, content, and play."
