Apple TV vs Interactive Whiteboards in the Classroom | Instructional Tech Talk | iPad pilot at King's | Scoop.it

"There have been several posts on the web discussing what makes the most sense to purchase for the classroom, an Apple TV setup or an Interactive Whiteboard. While it’s great to say one is better than the other, I would like to show you the differences between the two setups and break each setup down into categories to see which outperforms the other."

Apple has just announced the iPad mini and that means they've fully entered the small tablet space. Priced starting at $329, however, they didn't obliterate it as some (including yours truly) thought they would.

Free Technology for Teachers: Creative Uses for iPads in the Classroom

Free Technology for Teachers: Creative Uses for iPads in the Classroom | iPad pilot at King's | Scoop.it

"This afternoon I Stumbled Upon a good Slideshare presentation from Mike Amante who I had the pleasure of meeting during ISTE 2010. Mike's presentation Creative Uses for Ipad in the Classroom offers a nice run-down of the apps and examples of using them in the classroom. The presentation includes some QR codes that you can scan to get the lists of apps that Mike recommends. Take a look through the presentation as embedded below and you're likely to find a new app or idea that you can use in your classroom. "

Tech Tools for the Classroom Teacher: Sharing the iPad - 4 iPads, 20+ students, 30 minutes of class time, and an assessment

Tech Tools for the Classroom Teacher: Sharing the iPad - 4 iPads, 20+ students, 30 minutes of class time, and an assessment | iPad pilot at King's | Scoop.it

"For the first few weeks of school, I focused on teaching the preschool and pre-k classes how to properly handle the iPads. For this activity we used small books to model the proper ways in which to pass the iPads. The three rules that we focused on were as follows:

 

1. Always pass the iPad with two hands.
2. Only use clean hands on the iPad.
3. When tapping the iPad, tap gently."

Learning and Teaching with iPads: Utilising QR codes in learning | iPad pilot at King's | Scoop.it

"QR codes are being used more across the world and especially in learning.

 

There is a great opportunity for students to create and use QR codes on the iPad to extend learning across a range of curriculum subjects and specifically for demonstrating understanding of their own work or extending their understanding of a topic."

iMovie for iPad – Storyboard help sheets for trailers | Tech-Info-Maths T.I.M.

iMovie for iPad – Storyboard help sheets for trailers | Tech-Info-Maths T.I.M. | iPad pilot at King's | Scoop.it

"I did a quick search, delving a few pages deep in the results, but couldn’t find what I wanted. I thought that it would be useful if a trailer could be planned in advance, rather than shoot footage and hope that there was enough of the various types of scenes to fit the trailer templates. I know that we should design a trailer around our content, but it is also nice to be able to create one quickly from the templates."

"I have had the privilege of being able to plough new ground in my classroom with a class set of iPads. I now have over a year of experience in using them with my students everyday. Over that time I have had alot of trial, error and troubleshooting. But now into my second year I have the benefit of being familiar with iPads strengths and weaknesses. All of the apps in my list of 15 Ways to Use an iPad are ones that I have used with students."

It has some novel ideas as to how teachers can use iPad for instructional purposes."

"The idea of students sitting in front of PCs learning how to use Word is as dead as the proverbial dead parrot. It is already an antiquated model of learning – like chalk or fountain pens with ink-wells; it has a whiff of the twentieth century about it, rather than preparing our students for the future."
