Ten tips for using iPads in your classroom

Kathy Benson's insight:

I like tip #5 about letting kids EXPLORE on their first day. Also, I like #7 - the idea of buying one copy of an app and letting students rotate turns evaluating it.  Then if it is any good, you can purchase more copies. Finally, I agree with #8 - that a multi-purpose "creation" app is a better investment than a single content app for a particular unit/skill.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, April 3, 2013 12:06 PM

When developing online learning materials, it’s important to define the content that needs to be learned; determine what the learner must do as a result of completing these learning materials, and so decide on the most appropriate ‘treatment’ for the content. Users must interact with online learning materials to navigate through the materials; amass information and make decisions.

 

Considering what the learner needs to know or do – rather than what the teacher wants to teach – involves you in ‘interactivity’. So here are ten things to bear in mind about interactivity when you’re developing online learning materials:

Why Teachers Are Trying Out Apple TV In The Classroom - Edudemic

Why Teachers Are Trying Out Apple TV In The Classroom - Edudemic | iPad technology integration | Scoop.it
You don't often think of saving money when you think of Apple products. But implementing an Apple TV in the classroom can be just that. Surprisingly.
Kathy Benson's insight:

This post offers many good ideas on how to use one iPad as a whole class instructional tool.  It specifically mentions accomplishing this by mirroring the iPad to an Apple TV connected to a projector.  The same thing (mirroring an iPad) could be accomplished with the Reflector App on a PC or Mac (with the computer connected to a projector/speaker).

Interesting concept .... I like that you can "moderate" other peoples changes (i.e., choose to accept or reject them). It would be interesting to see how the "ask an expert" for editing advise works too.
