How to get paid apps for free | iPads in Education | Scoop.it
Even though downloadable apps for smartphones and tablets are quite inexpensive – most hovering around a buck or two -- anyone who owns one of these digital devices understands how these purchases could add up over time.
EdTechSandyK's insight:

I love Apps Gone Free! Awesome resource, especially for educators who don't want to spend a fortune on apps!

I have iPads in the Classroom! Now What?

I have iPads in the Classroom! Now What? | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"It sounds so cool to say “We have/use iPad in our school/classroom”.  Parents, community members and stakeholders might equal hearing such a statement with the assurance that the teacher/school is on the cutting edge of technology and their students are being prepared for a new world.  iPads (just as Smartboards used to) are a visual, easily counted and recognizable icon for such assurance.  Many schools around the globe are jumping on that proverbial “iPad bandwagon”

iPads are being handed out to faculty.a small number of devices or a class iPad cart is made available for classrooms to checkout.students might be asked to bring, lease or use school owned devices to create a 1:1 environment

You might be one of the teachers who is excited about the possibilities or apprehensive and fearful of the seemingly overwhelming task in front of you how to manage your classroom, students and the devices AND at the same time use them to improve student learning.

You might be thinking…

I totally agree that owning the devices is not even half he battle? Have you invested as much time and thought into infrastructure so that they can be used to their full potential? Have you invested in staff traing (and understanding)? How will they raise standards?

How to Use iPads for Personal Professional Development - Indiana Jen

How to Use iPads for Personal Professional Development - Indiana Jen | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

As an educator, when I am given a new tool my first thought is “how can I use this in the classroom? How will I roll this out?” However, I have learned over the years that I need to pause, step back, and think, “Okay, how is this tool going to make my life and job easier? How can I use iPad to make me a better teacher?” Before I rush ahead with how I am going to roll out this device in my classrooms, I need to effectively incorporate it into my life and figure out how to use iPads to make me a better teacher."

Losing an iPad: Simple Things to Protect Identity and Theft on Your Mobile Devices | The Edublogger

Losing an iPad: Simple Things to Protect Identity and Theft on Your Mobile Devices | The Edublogger | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"Last night I had one of those incredibly horrifying moments that I hope you never experience.

 

Just as I’m getting ready to go to bed at 11 PM in my hotel room I suddenly realize my iPad was missing. Losing an iPad is upsetting – knowing the damage someone could do if they accessed online accounts using my iPad was terrifying.

 

Fortunately I knew I had some protection because I password protect my devices and had set up Find My iPad/Phone.  Which can’t be said for many of the educators I noticed using mobile devices at ISTE.  But had I done enough?"
