St. Paul schools bring iPads into the classroom - Star Tribune

St. Paul schools bring iPads into the classroom - Star Tribune | Gordon Graduate Education | Scoop.it

ipadTo get a sense of the iPad’s potential to change teaching and learning in the St. Paul School District, just walk the halls of Mississippi Creative Arts School on the city’s North End.

 

Outside a classroom recently, four fifth-graders sat on a hallway floor using an iPad to record themselves in a book club conversation that they and their teacher could review later to gauge their understanding of the material.

The teacher, Susan Kreidler, a 21-year veteran, “wasn’t so sure” of her district’s all-in embrace of the device as a means to enhance learning. But kids are inspired, reading levels are up and, Kreidler said, “I’m on board.”

The renaissance of self-reliance has brought about such things as a flood of creative ideas on Pinterest, Arduino projects, popular YouTube DIY Channels, and the Raspberry Pi movement. But why should grown-ups have all the fun?
Kids are born into technology, so why not include them in the experience? Teach them to fix and create things and you teach them to take control of their world.

This is really useful

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, March 2, 2015 12:04 PM

With the nationwide emphasis of student growth on teacher evaluation, educators are going to need to become proficient creators of local assessments that actually determine learning as an outcome of instruction and practice with concepts. Most of today's teachers do not feel competent in this realm. Here are some good steps to begin changing assessment from an outside provider to assessment as a true indicator of what kids are learning in schools today.
