Teachers Guide on The Use of iPad in education | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPad Activities | Scoop.it

iPad is a cool versatile tool that has a huge potential in education. It is widely  believed that iPad has started tranforming the face of education and revolutionizng modes of learning.

 

Results coming out of pilot studies on the integration of iPads in the classroom seem to be promising. Reed College, for instance, took the Apple iPad for a spin in 2010 and was pleased with the tablets performance as an educational tool.

 

As part of a pilot program, Roslyn High School on Long Island handed out 47 iPads on Dec and the school district hopes to provide iPads eventually to all 1.100 of its students. Another report shows that hundreds of middle school students in the central San Joaquin Valley, Calif, are using curriculum apps for their classwork and homework.

Apps in Education: Word Clouds on the iPad

Apps in Education: Word Clouds on the iPad | iPad Activities | Scoop.it

"I love word clouds. It is the best way to deconstruct a piece of text with students. It lets you start that conversation about language, text types, literacy and the power of the written word. It is also a great way to do a text analysis. Marco Torres talks about using them to compare two political speeches to analyse the types of words each of the candidates use but this idea would work just as easily with characters in a book, types of poems or even a series of artists you are studying."

5 Interesting Ways to Use iPad in The Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

5 Interesting Ways to Use iPad in The Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPad Activities | Scoop.it

"After the tremendous success following the publication of " 9 starter tips for teachers who have just got a new iPad " iPad4schools has put forward this new graphic featuring a set of interesting ideas teachers and students can try during the 5 minutes, 5 days, and 5 weeks  'when introducing a new initiative or technology.'

With each digital tip an app or a couple more are suggested and which can better execute that idea. If you are thinking in Bloom's Taxonomy terms then I must say that most, if not all, of the apps included in this graphic correspond with the "creation" level in the Bloom's thinking continuum. I invite you to have a look and try out some of the ideas mentioned in this work."
