Apps in Education: Teacher 101 iPad Sessions

Apps in Education: Teacher 101 iPad Sessions | Gaia | Scoop.it

"I have recently been asked to provide a number iPad sessions for teachers. I had one school where they had recently bought a large number of iPads and wanted to start from scratch. Another had a 1:1 Program in a particular year group but wanted their colleagues to get an understanding of the potential of iPads in the classroom. I was able to use this Teacher ToolKit idea for both groups."

This is a great web based app for writing objectives, be they for course, section or chapter!!

Rosemary Tyrrell's curator insight, November 19, 2013 10:41 AM
Beth Dichter's insight:

This tool is easy to use and assists you in writing objectives. It is based on Bloom's taxonomy and provides a number of drop down menus that allow you to:

* Select what students will do after completing a lesson

* Provides an overview of the meaning of the level you selected

* Provides a drop down list of verbs that help to clearly define the objective (you choose the one you want to use)

* Provides some sample objectives that use the verb you selected

* Write your own objective, and then copy and paste it into your document or print a copy

The version of Bloom's they have online uses the word synthesis while the new version has removed synthesis and replaces it with creating. I don't believe that this impacts the value of the tool but you should be aware that it may not provide the assistance for that specific category.

Charles Tiayon's curator insight, November 20, 2013 12:17 AM

Studies show ten-percent of students in US schools are still learning to speak English. But just one-percent of teachers are qualified to instruct them.

Whether it’s a doctor, firefighter, or a baseball player, most kids have an idea of what they want to be when they grow up. David Aregbe didn’t. Last year, his dream was learning how to communicate with his fellow fourth graders.

But there was one subject Aregbe did get, math. It’s a subject with its own universal language.

ELL instructors like Magdalena Mujica Voy use other universal ideas like pictures to help English learners.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, November 19, 2013 9:35 AM

There are valid points in the article. One that stands out is the challenge of change in education. Part of this challenge is the unwillingness of our supposed educational leaders to embrace the idea that their ideas are not the only possibilities for change. Being given the book "Who moved my cheese" by two pseudo-leadership types is part of my view we have limited and weak leadership in education. It is about a change in the conversation first.
