10 Steps to a Successful School iPad Program - iPads in Education | i Education | Scoop.it

iPads have certainly become a highly desired commodity in education. Apple is reporting that schools are purchasing iPads by a ratio of 2:1 over MacBooks. However, that rush to purchase the latest technologies often precedes the careful planning and preparation that’s crucial to their success as educational tools.

As teachers continue to explore student centered learning and student negotiated inquiry, it is important that students have tools that can help them work together, investigate, and create explanations of their deep understanding.  iPads are a great tool for those goals and this helps schools see how best to begin that process... with careful planning!

As more schools transition to 1:1 programs, many teachers ask for tips and strategies for using iPads in the classroom in transformative ways. Here are just a few possibilities.

Lou Salza's curator insight, January 2, 2013 6:52 PM

"The iPad is not magic, and as many educators have found integrating them meaningfully is by no means a just-add-water proposition.

The same applies to Project-Based Learning.

Project-Based Learning is a method of giving learners access to curriculum in authentic ways that promote collaboration, design, imagination, and innovation while also allowing for more natural integration of digital and social media. Below we’ve offered 23 ways that the iPad can be used in your classroom. While given strategies may or may not fit exactly into your curriculum or grade level, consider them instead as a kind of board of ideas to inspire your own thinking. If “Designing a tire” is beyond the ability of your 4th graders (and you’re certain of that), what else might they design instead? If analyzing narrative design sounds below your college freshman, what might them “consume and design” instead?

Note that the visual is also arranged in a kind of visual spectrum, as our past visuals have been. But this time, rather than being distributed by complexity, it is instead laid out in terms of the kind of workflow a learner might encounter in a 21st century, K-20, project-based learning environment."
