iPads in Education: Critiquing the Positive Spin Memes

iPads in Education:  Critiquing the Positive Spin Memes | iPad technology integration | Scoop.it

We have to problematize the notion of being able to immediately access huge volumes of information up against the notion of learning and integrating that information into one’s schemata. How is accessing large amounts of information related to learning it, especially learning it well enough to apply it? What is more, if learners spend so much time accessing information or organizing it for future access, do they spend proportionally more time managing information than learning it?

Just as our supertindent Dr. Dance said in his State of Schools speech, appropriate use of technology can enhance learning; but nothing can replace a good teacher.

12 Characteristics Of An iPad-Ready Classroom

12 Characteristics Of An iPad-Ready Classroom | iPad technology integration | Scoop.it

"Implementing iPads isn’t exactly a just-add-water proposition.

While they’re wondrous little devices capable of enchanting learners for hours, to get the learning results you’re likely after will take planning, design, and reflection"


Via John Evans, Ruth Catchen, Serkan Okur
Kathy Benson's insight:

Useful framework for discussing 21st Teaching and Learning environments (Curriculum, Instruction, Assessment, and Integration).  As our superintendent says "We need to prepare our students for their future, not our past."

 

The characteristics listed are meant to show whether or not your classroom pedagogy is ready for iPads.  The characteristics also could be used to show how the introduction of mobile devices can result in improvement in the characteristics listed.

Analysis of recent 1:1 learning initiatives in primary and secondary | iPad technology integration | Scoop.it

The main beneficiaries of the 1:1 initiatives identified in Europe were the students and teachers, who in most cases received laptops and netbooks, in some cases tablets and in a few cases, smartphones. In most of the initiatives, students owned the devices and could use them for their activities in and out of school.
