For instance, did you know that Apple Music can show you song lyrics in iOS 10? Or that Apple Maps can remember where you parked your car?

Don’t Leave Learning Up to Chance: Framing and Reflection - MindShift - @Kschwart @JackieGerstein

Don’t Leave Learning Up to Chance: Framing and Reflection - MindShift - @Kschwart @JackieGerstein | iPad Learning Apps and Ideas | Scoop.it
Jackie Gerstein is an experienced educator who has been working as a classroom teacher and pre-service teacher trainer for years. With a background in experiential learning, Gerstein is excited about current trends in education that have more people excited to try project-based learning, maker education and other approaches that let students get hands-on with their learning.

She hopes all the excitement turns into robust, meaningful change in how mainstream teachers educate. To do that, she says it’s crucial that teachers not only focus on the materials and tools of a maker activity, but also carefully frame it and reflect upon it to make sure learning happens.

“If we don’t create a process of reflecting and framing them, then we are leaving learning up to chance,” Gerstein said on a panel about makerspaces hosted at the International Society of Technology in Education (ISTE) conference.

Who doesn’t love a great shortcut?  If there’s an easier way to accomplish a task on my iPad or iPhone, I’m all for it. One of the apps I use the most on my iPad is Safari.
