App Smash - Smashing apps for Modern Foreign Languages

App Smash - Smashing apps for Modern Foreign Languages | Education Technology | Scoop.it

"Language learning has to be met with engaging and entertaining lesson objectives that include innovative approaches from the teacher. The iPad can be the perfect tool to employ when trying to achieve this high standard. Combining apps to enhance lingual learning can really bring multi-media MFL magic into the classroom. Smashing all sorts of language apps into the Book Creator app is just one way of doing this! I plan to create a ‘School Talk’ language book that translates key school resources and aspects of day-to-day education into French."

5 Critical Mistakes Schools Make With iPads (And How To Correct Them) | Edudemic

5 Critical Mistakes Schools Make With iPads (And How To Correct Them) | Edudemic | Education Technology | Scoop.it

Focusing on iPad-versus.-laptop comparisons stifles the ability to see how the iPad facilitates student-centered learning. iPads are devices meant to compliment computers, not replace them.

So, people who seek equivalent functionality become frustrated, and fail to realize the intrinsic benefits and features of the iPad’s native design.

 

Instead, schools should focus their energies on what iPads do best to engender active learning. iPads enable students to kinesthetically connect with their work (especially important for young learners). These tactile elements – using fingers to zoom, rotate in, pinch close, or swipe across – as well as increasingly interactive and immersive apps, facilitate hands-on learning.

Just think, these students don't realize that iPads are not something to be used alone. I've seen many people with their tablets/pads and a laptop complimenting/corroborating with each other.

Mohamed Bouri's curator insight, December 30, 2014 6:27 PM

Our schools lack iPads, but these tips may be helpful if your students use them!
