Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 25, 2013 11:16 AM

Manners do matter. Recently, I was greeted by a person who is about 40. I use greeting broadly. He said, "Hey Ivon" and immediately looked at his phone to check Twitter or whatever. That is the role model we have from educators out there. Really?

The curation comment is interesting... I think it's fantastic that students are able to gain these skills without the assistance of a teacher, but ultimately if they veer off the path or have been misguided, they will always need a facilitator to not only show students the tools but also give them some best practice ideas.

A Guide for Administrators

A Guide for Administrators | Implementing iPads in the Classroom | Scoop.it

“A Guide for Administrators” is the newest resource from CoSN’s Leadership for Mobile Learning initiative.

In the face of the "new normal" of decreased budgets and increased expectations,

many administrators are turning to technology to enhance teaching and learning while mitigating the consequences of consecutive years of budget cuts. Mobile learning, in particular, has attracted a great deal of attention for its potential to engage students by leveraging the technology environment they have grown accustomed to in their non-school lives; its potential to scale personalized learning and reduce the digital divide; its potential to extend learning beyond the four walls of the classroom and the limited hours of the school day; and its potential to enable new pedagogies based on the affordances of these devices that students already carry at their fingertips.Still, the field of mobile learning is still emerging and there are many questions to be addressed when contemplating a mobile learning implementation.

How do we create a program with a sustainable impact on teaching and learning, rather than a superficial adoption of the currently "hot" technology?What are the steps involved in implementing a mobile learning program?How do we optimize the investment of our technology dollars?How do we choose devices, networks, and software for our implementation?What are the security considerations in implementing a mobile learning program?What are the policy considerations for a mobile learning program?What are the professional development considerations?What are the teaching models associated with mobile learning?What are the options for funding a mobile learning program?

Introducing Mobile Technology Into Your Classroom: Structures and Routines

Introducing Mobile Technology Into Your Classroom: Structures and Routines | Implementing iPads in the Classroom | Scoop.it

ÈIt can be intimidating to try something new in your classroom. This is especially true with technology. I believe that technology should make the work of teachers easier while creating an environment that excites and engages students. Even though I'm coming from an iPad classroom, these structures and routines are great for introducing all one-to-one devices."

Good sensible structures make management so much easier. 

Becca Wagman's curator insight, April 6, 2014 4:25 PM

Classroom Climate: This article showed me important details on implementing technology into the classroom. It stressed how to ease into applying technology into the class and how for teachers to teach students the proper way to handle the electronics they get to use. When thinking of project-based learning, there needs to be a strong implementation of technology for students to use for project research and further exploration. Since this generation is so technology driven it is important to teach students how to use technology safely. (ROUTINE)

Chris Walton's insight:
I like how principal, Erik Burmeister, describes the transformative nature of these devices:"I no longer have to be the bottleneck of information for my students. I actually can be the person in charge of creating incredibly deep and broad learning experiences for kids and giving them the tools to find that factual information themselves."

How A Classroom Of iPads Changed My Approach To Learning

How A Classroom Of iPads Changed My Approach To Learning | Implementing iPads in the Classroom | Scoop.it

By recognizing that our prior experience with ICT had created paradigms that constrained our thinking, we are starting to glimpse new learning opportunities made possible by one-to-one integration of iPads. Rather than viewing iPads as substitutes for other technologies (including paper), it is our view that iPads can be used as tools and environments for learning that allow for deeper and more diverse engagements. Our journey with iPads in learning continues.

John Pearce's curator insight, April 13, 2013 8:59 AM

Yet another article that backs up the thinking that tablets are rightly or wrongly making a difference to how young children interact with their world. The fact that they are growing up in world where screens are so ubiquitous begs the question regarding whether access to them should or indeed can be restricted and if so under what circumstances. The bigger question however might be more about whether through youngsters growing up with screens may mean that the novelty value we adults often ascribe to screens may fade sooner for them than for we adults. It may be that because of this youngsters may self regulate their interactions.

Mary Kate Lavin's curator insight, February 6, 2014 2:34 PM

Students are learning with the iPad because of  the kinesthetics of touching the screen.  This goes for children as small as 2 years old.  Students understand how to use a touch screen and are learning through touch.
