A few weeks ago, I did a workshop on Creating Authentic iPad Learning Stations for Primary Students. I thought I would share some of the things that I spoke about and some of the key points that I tried to get across in my workshop.
First, an iPad Station does not consist of handing a child an iPad, putting them on an app and letting them click away. Come on people, aren’t we past this by now? In the past, I have had colleagues come ask me if they can use the iPads in my room the following period. When I replied yes, their next question was, “What apps do you have on them?” WHAT!? Integrating technology doesn’t mean that you hand a child an iPad for a period because you have nothing planned. Using technology needs to be purposeful. It needs to be thought out, and there needs to a reason to use it.
The Apple Keynote 2015 edition happened on 9/9/15 in the legendary Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. Monster announcements were made across several of the Apple products. However, the unveiling of an all new iPad Pro got every spectator on the edge of their seats as one-after-another Apple demonstrated the glory of their tablet device. When it comes to devices for learning and teaching in classroom, I am a big fan of the iPad. The excellent quality display features, graphics, anywhere, anytime truly mobile learning solutions offered by this tablet with a lucid, highly responsive MultiTouch experience and App Store’s unlimited productivity, creativity and teaching-learning oriented solutions have made iPad an irresistible education technology tool for all educators. When Apple released its first ever iPad it might not have the huge diversity and potential that this tablet device could offer. Tim Cook himself admitted to being amazed at the diverse ways in which people had used the iPad. He called it Apple’s vision for the future of personal computing.
Since its five years of inception, iPad has truly transformed the way we create, the way we learn, and the way we work. And the all new iPad Pro is all set to take the create-work-learn paradigm to an all new level.
You don’t have to live with Apple TV’s default settings! I’d like to recommend some tweaks to make Apple TV more classroom friendly. These adjustments include hiding previews and icons on the Home screen, preventing screen hijacking, using the screen saver as a digital bulletin board, and other handy tips.
YouTube is one of the most popular websites on the planet and a vast resource for educational content. The site is home to over 10 million videos tagged as educational, many of them submitted by your fellow teachers.
Storehouse is a free iPad and iPhone app that I’ve been recommending for over a year now. The app allows users to quickly create beautiful visual stories. This week Storehouse was updated. The updated version of the app provides features that many people have wanted. The updated version of the app now makes all of your stories private by default. Additionally, you can now embed your stories into blog posts rather than just sharing them via social media, email, or SMS.
iOS 9 added a long-awaited feature to the iPad: the ability to have multiple apps on-screen at the same time. iPads support three different types of multitasking: Slide Over, Split View, and Picture in Picture. The other app-switching gestures on an iPad still work, too.

This is a very useful app for iPad teachers, especially for those just beginning to use the tablet for their teaching. It introduces users to great teaching apps, many of which have been featured here on teachingwithipad.org. It contains several useful how-tos and videos to show you both basic and advanced features of these apps.
Users can spend hours simply exploring all the useful videos. Even those who are comfortable teaching with iPads can learn something new.
