iPurpose before iPad

iPurpose before iPad | Fisch's Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"

Both tools have supported my reflection on iPad use in school and are worth checking out in detail. Having said that, though, I feel they both fall short in what is needed as a resource for implementing iPads in education. iPad as… does a good job at presenting uses for iPads in school – what they can be used for – but doesn’t really provide depth about the skill development that can arise from their use. It’s still action/activity emphasis rather than pedagogical/learning emphasis. It’s great to know that you can create videos, and it describes what the app can do,  but how will this improve learning and what learning will it improve is also a priority iPad schools need to address. I think it also pigeon-holes apps as one trick ponies – I’d like to emphasise the apps that can be used to develop many skills."

Using Technology Vs Technology Integration- An Excellent Chart for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Using Technology Vs Technology Integration- An Excellent Chart for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Fisch's Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"Are you using or integrating technology in your teaching ? At the face of it, it seems like a game of semantics but in fact it is more than that. When we talk about technology integration in the classroom we are talking about a planned and highly structured and purposeful use of technology with students whose ultimate goal is to engage students and help them develop new thinking skills. Using technology, on the other hand, is a random and sporadic process whose main goal is to instruct students on content not to engage them with content.


The chart below ,I came across in Teachbytes , offers a more detailed explanation of the difference between Using Technology and Integrating Technology. Have a look and, as always, share with us your feedback in the comment form below. Enjoy"

M Labelle-Fisch's insight:

Always shoot for the integration.  I ask myself at the end of each day, among other questions, "who used the tech in the classroom today?"

Are you using technology or intergrating technology? An interesting and clearly presented comparison.

Dr. Peterson's curator insight, August 13, 8:25 PM

This chart will help you distinguish between enhancing your class with technology versus transforming or reconceptualizing concepts with technology.

Essential rules for effectively using iPads in middle school classrooms | iSource

Essential rules for effectively using iPads in middle school classrooms | iSource | Fisch's Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"In the two years of being a principal of a school that has been using iPads on a 1:1 device to student ratio, I have learned a lot about classroom rules that are needed to ensure that the iPads are an effective learning tool rather than a learning distraction.

 

If managed properly, iPads offer amazing benefits to learning and are almost limitless classroom tools.  However, if not properly managed, iPads can also be a detriment to classroom learning and be a major distraction for students.

 

During my time using the iPads in the classrom, I have found the following 11 rules to be essential for keeping the iPads as a learning tool and not a learning distraction."

15 Reasons Why We Should Be Teaching Our Kids To Code

15 Reasons Why We Should Be Teaching Our Kids To Code | Fisch's Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Should we be teaching our to kids code? Hell yea! How do I know? I’m a teacher and I see much of the present curriculum just plain tedious, rote memorization. I also have witnessed the decline in creativity in the classroom, year after year it is whittled away. Not much left today, and even teachers who value it above all else, have had the wind blown out of their sails."

no. if we've stopped teaching long division i definitely code is about as obsolete unless one wants to take it.
Ken Ronkowitz's comment, April 26, 2013 10:55 AM
coding teaches a lot about critical thinking, logic and the beautiful economy of clean code. but teaching it because you think you are creating coders is useless.

10 Important Questions To Ask Before Using iPads in Class | MindShift | Fisch's Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"When it comes to deciding how or whether to use iPads, schools typically focus on budget issues, apps, networking logistics, check-in and check-out procedures, school and district tech-use policies, hardware precautions, and aspects of classroom management.

 

But it’s also important to think about instructional use, and to that end, consider the following questions."
