How To Create A Paperless Classroom With Your iPad

How To Create A Paperless Classroom With Your iPad | iPad Use in Higher Ed | Scoop.it

"The idea of a paperless classroom is not new.

 

In fact, there was recently one very good blog, TeachPaperless, dedicated to this very idea. In short, the idea promotes not just a reduction of paper and other physical resources, but rather a more efficient workflow, quicker communication, improved access to learning materials, seamless digital portfolios, and more naturally connected student-teacher-student networks."

I do agree thats because i always said... think more, use less.

 

Stacy Young's curator insight, August 13, 2013 12:39 PM

It's interesting how the younger generation is all tech, yet many of my middle schoolers still want a paper copy and work with paper.

ReallyOrganizedNow(RON)'s comment, August 14, 2013 2:44 AM
It is still a wonder to me why in this day of technological advancement, that there isn't a laptop or tablet on every desk in every school across the nation. Technology, need to be integrated more with the teaching and learning of our students.

8 Apps to turn your iPad into an Interactive Whiteboard | iPad Use in Higher Ed | Scoop.it

Interactive Whiteboards ... can often to lead to situations where the teacher is firmly stuck at the front of the class to “deliver” content to the students. Some schools are looking to move away from this format, and use iPads as an IWB replacement, although I still think the best way forward should be an interactive screen at the front of the class, coupled with tablets.

Here Is How to Use iPad As A Document Camera in Class ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPad Use in Higher Ed | Scoop.it
An interesting way to use iPad with students in class is through turning it into a document camera. The concept is very simple, you use your iPad as a mirroring device to project documents to a bigger screen. The whole class will be able to follow with you as you go through the document. For this to happen, you will need to connect your iPad to a projector either through a VGA Adapter Cable or wirelessly using a third party app. Check out Learning in Hand’s post to learn more about the different options you can utilize to connect your iPad to a projector.
