Managing: The Nuts & Bolts of an iPad Classroom

Managing: The Nuts & Bolts of an iPad Classroom | Enhancing Education | Scoop.it

Purchasing the iPads was the easy part. Managing them is another matter. Dean Shareski says that “iPads are meant to be owned, not managed.”  I think he is correct, but managing them still needs to be done for my grade one students.  Managing them is the nuts and bolts that makes our iPad classroom run.

Paradigm Shift–Thinking Differently About Technology

Paradigm Shift–Thinking Differently About Technology | Enhancing Education | Scoop.it

How long has the word paradigm been around? I remember many years ago talking about the concept of paradigm shift (I had to google it to verify that Joel Barker was the author I recall being the expert of the time.) Anyhow, enough of the brief history lesson on my knowledge of paradigms. But I do have a point, lets talk about this concept.

Curation tools to help you cope with info-overload | Enhancing Education | Scoop.it

"My top three preferred platforms for sourcing and sorting through qualified curators and their content are Twitter, Scoop.it and Google Plus" says Debra Askanase on the Socialbrite blog.

 

It's interesting to read how she explains her daily routine with Scoop.it which involved both publishing and following topics she has a professional interest in. "If you have only 30 minutes each day to read the latest news in your industry, start with Scoop.it; it serves up the newest information in a very readable format."
