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.
As the iPad approaches popularity that’d make The Beatles blush, it’s easy to forget what technology in learning looked like before the little tablet from Cupertino entered our collective pedagogical consciousness. It’s also easy to forget...
"This year, the iPad is still going strong and schools are continuing to innovate new ways to use the tablets in class and around campus. Here we share just a few of the coolest ways iPads are making waves in higher ed this year, from helping teams play better to ensuring students never forget their notes."
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.
Jacqui Sharp's insight:
Great post on using tablets/iPads for creative purposes.
Mobile technology and social networks aren't just disruptive to existing industries like communications and media, they are also helping the change the way that students learn and how education is delivered both in North America and around the world.
While we’ve witnessed many effective approaches to incorporating iPads successfully in the classroom, we’re struck by the common mistakes many schools are making with iPads, mistakes that are in some cases crippling the success of these initiatives.
