"My school is currently 1:1 iPads in Grades 1, 4, and 5, and next year we're expanding that to include Grades 2 and 3. Like most schools, we went through a phase where we tried out LOTS of different apps, but over time, we whittled those down into our Core Apps, ones that are flexible and powerful enough to be used in every subject all day long. One of the keys for me is that these apps can be used by students to CREATE things, not just consume things. Here are our favorites:"
"An iPad can be a teacher’s very handy assistant! Last year I published an infographic titled "iPad as the Teacher’s Pet” and I have updated it to version 2.0. It’s all about what can be done by Pad-using educators, whether or not their students have iPads. It is divided into seven sections:
Show on a Big Screen Manage the Classroom Assess Student Work Interact with Students Manage Your Files Make Instructional Media Learn New Things"
"After learning how to correctly cite a tweet and other online materials, I want you to learn about how to cite an app. If you are writing a scholarly paper and find yourself in need of properly referencing an app you find on iTunes store the guide below will definitely help you out."
"Just a brilliant idea for the literacy classroom and integrating technology into your lessons! Creating poetry on the iPad by taking a photo of text from a book, magazine or newspaper and then selecting specific words. An iPad teacher tutorial using the Drawing Pad App and the Pages App for this activity. Big thanks to Chris Betcher for sharing this idea. Thanks Chris!"
The habits themselves aren't new at all, and significant work has already been done in the areas of these "thinking habits." However, in a 21st century learning environment -- one often inundated with information, stimulation and connectivity -- there may be a newfound context for their application.
"If you spend time on twitter looking at the #augmentedreality and #edutech hashtags you will know that there is quite a lot of discussion going on about Augmented Reality, and how it can be used as an educational tool. And with good reason."
