Interesting insight into how iPads are being used in schools and the impact they are making both positive and negative. I challenge teachers to look at this article and identify all the different teaching and learning ideas there are and how they could apply or adapt them in their classrooms.

Jacqui Sharp's insight:

We don’t want iPads to just become replacements for notebooks and textbooks, we want them to be objects to think with. We want students using them to mess around with the world around them and their courses of study. Here are ideas on how to use iPads to create and document in order to cement what students are learning.

Sarah Ogden's curator insight, September 30, 2013 11:12 AM

I love this article from a first grade teacher. Regardless of the number of devices, I believe her story has some great lessons for us. 

Terri Roberts's curator insight, October 1, 2013 10:18 AM

Who wouldn't want their child in this classroom? Great job, Kathy, and it was your first year 1:1! 

Thina's curator insight, October 1, 2013 1:29 PM

The follwing article speaks of the wonders of Ipads in learning and the advantages that have come with the use of the technology. Students are able to study independently and strive to succeed at their own expense.

 

The leaners are able to share knowledge as well as learn about things that are not part of the curriculum which is a great way of advancing education and shows that learners are learning more than what is expected of them.

 

The use of technology in the classroom is a great tool as the worl is moving up with technology and the media world is advancing showing schools that there's more to education than just text books and written work. This way children don't have to fight for computers in that they all have access to the device and are able to share facts and disocover new things while learning the required curriculum.

 

It is a great article on how school systems should advance with technolgy creating a better learning environment.

The Netherlands and Los Angeles next. Nevertheless, I believe that a certain balance between technology and actually book using can be beneficial too (depending also on school circumstances).
Ioanna Pastarmatzi's curator insight, August 23, 2013 3:44 AM

What is needed, in my opinion, is a valuable balance between technology and actual book using.
