iPad Research in Schools - Use and Impact of the iPad

iPad Research in Schools - Use and Impact of the iPad | iPad Adoption | Scoop.it

An in-depth study that took place in Scotland, looking at "issues associated with the deployment of personal mobile devices as tools for teaching and learning."
Four themes were identified:

* How tablet devices impacted teaching and learning?

* Leadership and management issues

* Parental engagement

* Professional development and learning for teachers

The post lists six headlines from the study, including (quoting):

* The adoption of mobile technologies on a personal basis significantly increases access to technology for students, both inside and beyond school, with many attendant benefits for learning which include greater motivation, engagement, parental involvement, and understanding of complex ideas.

 * Teachers are equally engaged by the use of a device like the iPad which has a low learning curve enabling them to use it immediately as a teaching tool and a learning tool for themselves.

For more information click through to the article. To download the report you will need to go a link at the end of the articles "iPad Scotland Evaluation."

Moving files has not been easy when there are multiple users of an iPad in school environments. Email often presents issues due to size limts (and the same would hold true with video). 

This post provides details about how to do this, and also looks at the process to add media to an Edmodo post. There are also suggestions on ways to collect student work.
