The Dos and Don'ts for Integrating iPads

The Dos and Don'ts for Integrating iPads | Education | Scoop.it
"Put your wands away!" Professor Umbridge from the Harry Potter stories would tell the students at the beginning of each class. After a few classes when Professor Umbridge would make the announcement, "Put your wands away," the students did not have to do anything because they never even bothered to take the wands out. Interestingly enough, I witnessed a similar experience in my own wizarding school, um, I mean just school. Forgive the allusion to Harry Potter, but there are just too many wonderful parallels. Our freshman and sophomore students all had iPads (wands) and some of the teachers would have them looking up information, collaborating on an app, or watching chemistry movies. But some teachers were just like Professor Umbridge: "Put your iPads away. If I see them they will be confiscated." Student knew not to even expect to use them in these teachers' classes. Most surprisingly, some of these teachers were the "superstars" of the campus.'

With some simple programming, they were able to overlay images of vintage maps of some major cities onto satellite images from today. The results are fascinating."

To capture these ideas, to plan a presentation, or to record a set of meeting notes, we are often left only with our computers or mobile devices. Many apps are now available that can capture those ideas, providing a multitude of options that are sure to increase your productivity.

Does your teacher encourage you in the classroom?  I am thankful for the teachers I had growing up.  Without them I might never have entered the education system:)

5 Apps for Note Taking

5 Apps for Note Taking | Education | Scoop.it

Now that more and more classrooms are becoming digital it seems there’s a market for note taking apps over writing long hand. While there is some practical value to handwritten notes, like being able to use the margins and free space to jot down anything that seems helpful, many students now are proficient or extremely proficient when it comes to typing skills and may even be faster note taking through an app than through long hand. Students are living their lives through computers and tablets, so it only makes sense to eliminate the bulk of paper notebooks from their backpacks in favor of their multi­purpose tablet. These 5 note taking apps go above and beyond the default notepad and make retaining information from the classroom both fun and extremely organized.
