What do you want to do with the iPad in education?

What do you want to do with the iPad in education? | Educational Technology Grab Bag |

"Below I have outlined a number of tasks, for use with the iPad in the classroom. I believe that if you understand these 5 tasks from beginning to end, you will have an excellent foundation to build any engaging classroom activities."

Fantastic breakdown of basic iPad tasks. Perfect to use with my teachers who are new to our iPad programme.

This post discusses the need to define the outcome you expect before you design your project (understanding by design where you begin at the end product and work backwards). The focus is on the iPad, but the questions he proposes for students to answer should work with most digital apps or online tools we use in our classrooms. Within the post you will find five projects that are designed with Bloom's taxonomy in mind. The projects are:

* Create a movie

* Create a podcast

* Create an interactive book

* Create a presentation

* Create a PDF

Of more interest (to me) are the steps he suggests you follow as you create the workflow that students will need to follow.

Clearly define the outcome providing an explanation that the students will understand and also define the context, providing sufficient information that the student know what they will need to accomplish.

When you click through to the post, you will see that each of the projects includes five areas that students work through. In each project students will begin with a clear concept of what they need to remember. They then move up (Bloom's taxonomy) to understanding, with another task to complete. From there they look at applying and analyzing, with additional questions and specified work to be accomplished. This is followed by analyzing and creating, and as a final component collaboration comes into play. In each of these areas there are one or more iPad apps recommended.

A great one-stop shop to explore apps targeted at different levels of Bloom's Taxonomy. Easily navigated and broken down into experiences and evidence as well. Good find!

Ik weet dat sommigen die Bloom maar niks of een versimpeling van de werkelijkheid vinden, ík vind het een handige kapstok.
