Why L.A.’s iPad Rollout Was Doomed

Why L.A.’s iPad Rollout Was Doomed | iPad Rollouts | Scoop.it

The second big issue was a lack of training, professional development, and overall, a failure to recognize the human resource needs created by a big device rollout like this one. “Teachers were not trained in the system to manage the devices. Nobody at the school was trained.

Chwayita Ceejay January's insight: 

This is so close to home (South Africa).  Trained teachers indeed play a major role in being able to effectively use these devices in the correct context.  The belief that merely deploying technology based material will enhance the learning experience and create a solid student network is a dangerous and expensive assumption.

ISTE - 6 elements of a successful iPad implementation

ISTE - 6 elements of a successful iPad implementation | iPad Rollouts | Scoop.it

 - As more districts across the United States move to 1:1 initiatives, a common barrier is financial resources, and a common temptation is to regard these initiatives as technology enterprises rather than instructional transformations. In a three-year pilot project, the Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) addressed these challenges by implementing a creative approach designed to entice public funders by providing all students with equitable access to digital devices.

Moving the 'un-moveable' teacher - IPAD 4 SCHOOLS

Moving the 'un-moveable' teacher - IPAD 4 SCHOOLS | iPad Rollouts | Scoop.it

"The main point this diagram illustrates for me is not so much the types of teachers in a school but the percentages of those types in existence. The sharp end of the pencil represents the teachers who choose to regularly update their knowledge and practice in teaching approach and use of technology and yes, it’s only 10-15%. Educations biggest influencers are the majority of teachers who either expect & wait for professional development to be delivered to them (wood), feel they require no PD at all (Ferrules) or try to reverse any example of progression from that which worked 20 years ago (Erasers). My own school has been BYOD for 4 years and can still claim the same percentages displayed in the pencil above (I’ve only been there a year). The first question that every teacher/leader at the summit should have been asking themselves is “How do I affect genuine change in the majority of those I work with?” This was the heart of my presentation."

iPads in the Classroom: 4 Steps to Prepare Teachers for Success - Bright Ideas Blog

iPads in the Classroom: 4 Steps to Prepare Teachers for Success - Bright Ideas Blog | iPad Rollouts | Scoop.it

"The best administrators know that the key to any new program or initiative is comprehensive preparation and training for their staff. If your district is considering deploying iPads in the classroom for the first time or you are restructuring or expanding an existing iPad initiative, what steps will you take to prepare your staff and students to successfully integrate tablet technology into the classroom? Before taking the plunge and investing in iPads, it's important to think through the instructional changes that will need to take place to ensure your iPad rollout is a success.

 

The eSpark team supports schools and districts across the country to integrate personalized learning and iPads into classrooms. Through our experience deploying tens of thousands of classroom iPads with our partnerships, we have identified four steps that are vital to the success of an iPad initiative. Along with each step, we provide an exemplary case study of how one of our district partnerships deployed iPads in their classrooms and achieved remarkably successful teacher and student outcomes."

The key to good classroom management has and always will be the "two eyes, two feet" technique. You have to be mobile and walk around the room. Off-task Behaviour occurs when teachers disengage.

My Response to "The iPad is so over, Apple seems to be moving on." - teachingwithipad.org

My Response to "The iPad is so over, Apple seems to be moving on." - teachingwithipad.org | iPad Rollouts | Scoop.it

"This post is based on Galen Gruman's article published on April 25, 2014: The iPad is so over, Apple seems to be moving on. Gruman bases his arguments on Jean-Louis Gassée's article: The iPad Is a Tease.

 

Articles claiming the death of the iPad are the result of the Apple's quarterly earnings that were reported on April 23.

 

Obviously, as an avid iPad in education promoter, this article hit home. Was I offended? That's probably not the right word. However, I do strongly disagree with both of the articles. The iPad is not a fad. It is here to stay."

iPad Bingo Chart for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

iPad Bingo Chart for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPad Rollouts | Scoop.it

"Pad Bingo chart is an activity created by Allanah King to help teachers enhance their workflow with iPad. At the heart of iPad Bingo is a collaborative learning and sharing experience and though Allanah initially designed this chart to be used with teachers learning about the basics of iPad use, I would suggest that teachers use it with their students in the start of the school year to assess students knowledge of basic iPad tasks. To do this you can apply the procedure Allanah used :

 

 

The deal was that people had to walk around the room and find someone who could show them how to do the tasks on the bingo board, that person showed them, then they had to do the task themselves. Then they could initial the bingo board. When they had five squares initialled in a row they yelled ‘Allanah’ and got a prize!"

Mine was not drawn on a napkin, but on Notability. And, to answer that snarky Johannesburg based iPad trainer who cannot believe I can do what I do using the iPad, yes I did create it myself!
