Digital storytelling handbook

This handbook is a product of the Digital Commonwealth project which sought to facilitate a creative response to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. However, the handbook is designed to be of use to a wider range of individuals, community groups and third sector organisations interested in using digital media (blogs, audio, video and social media) to tell their stories. Please use and share!

Educational Leadership:Teaching with Mobile Tech: How to Transform Teaching with Tablets

Educational Leadership:Teaching with Mobile Tech: How to Transform Teaching with Tablets | educational technology | Scoop.it
When you look at the very best work happening in iPad classrooms, you'll see students creating media, showcasing their understanding, collaborating with peers, and communicating with broad audiences. The pockets of excellence are ever-present and inspiring. On the whole, however, tablets are most often used to reproduce existing practices—to distribute resources and enable students to take notes.


Past generations of school leaders might have been forgiven for permitting these patterns of technology adoption, but today we have the benefit of history to look back on. We know that without a change in our technology integration strategies, there's no reason to expect that a new device will magically create new teaching practices in schools.


To make the most of the investment in tablet computers, school leaders need to do three things. First, they need to work with their communities to articulate a clear vision for how new technology will improve instruction. Second, they need to help educators imagine how new technologies can support those visions. Finally, they need to support teachers and students on a developmental journey that will take them from using tablets for consumption to using them for curation, creation, and connection."

Very interesting, thanks!

Mershon Viscusie's curator insight, May 19, 2015 1:41 PM

Questions to ask:

How will learning be different?

How will students improve as learners? As scholars? As citizens?

What will they be able to do 3 or 4 years after the ipad adoption that they can’t do now?

If ipads are the answer, what was the question?

What does awesome look like?

How does an ipad align with a vision of  meaningful and purposeful learning?

After laying down some ground rules about effective use they amazed us with their creative responses. It is not the tool. It is how you use it. And how teachers plan for it!

Hi Amadeu For me they are similar but different. EtherPads are useful to use for quick collaborative work and the ease of not having to get students to register etc is a real bonus (I've had nightmares with Google products, especially with international groups or while traveling abroad). I get student to use them like 'scrap paper' and then afterwards they can shift their text for final publishing. I also REALLY like the time slider as you can see how the students constructed the text.

"The role of technology in learning isn’t entirely clear–or rather, is subjective. While it clearly is able to provide access to peers, audiences, resources, and data, it also can be awkward, problematic, distracting, performing more strongly as a barrier to understand than anything else.

Why this happens also isn’t clear, but there are some common patterns and missteps to look for while designing or evaluating a learning process."
