The iPad Mini Could Spur an Education Revolution

The iPad Mini Could Spur an Education Revolution | ipad2learn #iPad #E-Learning #schreiben #lernen #m-learning | Scoop.it
I have long been a skeptic about the role of personal computing in education, especially for K-12 schools.
...

Tablets are fundamentally different. They are intensely personal and no more obtrusive than a textbook. Reading on them is a delight. While they can break if abused, they are far more rugged than laptops. Perhaps more important, their software is secure by design, making them all but immune to the malware and corruption that plague conventional PCs.

Apple is best equipped to take advantage of the K-12 tablet market. It has quietly worked with schools to develop tools for successful classroom use and to improve the manageability and delivery of custom content and applications. (A case study of a large-scale iPad school pilot in the Australian state of Victoria gives a lot of information on how this can be done.) Apple offers extensive training and support for educators. And the iPad Mobile Learning Lab is a charging cart designed for classroom sets of tablets.Apple is best equipped to take advantage of the K-12 tablet market..

Book Creator | The simple way to help all learners create beautiful books on the iPad | ipad2learn #iPad #E-Learning #schreiben #lernen #m-learning | Scoop.it

If you have a learner that struggles to write, this is the app that can stir the imagination and help them be creative with a Wow!

 

Book Creator for iPad

• Choose from portrait, landscape or square book sizes.

• Add pictures from the Photos app; grab them from the web; move, resize and rotate them with your fingers.

• Edit text using the onscreen keyboard; apply rich formatting

• iPad's fonts - over 50 to use.

• Import video and music, and record speech within the app.

 

Here is what an Pre K-12 Assistive Technology Specialist said about this app:  "My students loved this app. They felt it was so easy to use, that they could open it for the first time and know intuitively what to do. Having it then go to iBooks and create an individual bookshelf was fantastic."

Again some are just enthralled by the idea of creating such posts when in fact there is nothing good about the lists they make except their shining title. Through the experience we have accumulated here over a couple of years with reviewing educational web tools and apps, we succeeded in creating a network of trusted Edubloggers who have a very good reputation in this field and who really contribute to the advancement of educational technology through their laborious efforts and postings.


Simple K-12 is one of these trusted resources that when they publish a list-post we know they have invested a decent amount of time selecting its components .

5 Reasons Mobile Learning Apps Fail

...

There are currently over 50,000 education apps available on the iOS App Store. Whether you are studying for the SAT, learning your primary colors, exploring the night sky, tracking your students’ grades, prepping for the medical school boards, or learning Spanish, it seems like there’s always “an app for that.” Sometimes there are even 100s of apps for a single subject like the SAT!

The sad thing is that the majority of these apps do not conform to commonly accepted principles for educational software. While an educational app may in fact be “fun”, there’s a good chance that it is a net detriment to a student’s learning progress (when compared to traditional means of study).

Here are 5 reasons why education-focused mobile apps may not actually help people learn.

Technology Bits Bytes & Nibbles | New book about iPads in Education by Sam Gliksman

Technology Bits Bytes & Nibbles | New book about iPads in Education by Sam Gliksman | ipad2learn #iPad #E-Learning #schreiben #lernen #m-learning | Scoop.it

If you have some unique lessons that showcase iPads being used as tools within the context of a larger project, then Sam would love to hear from you. He is not looking for more apps. He is looking for unique “applications” of iPad use. Naturally that will include the use of apps but the objectives and process should extend beyond the app itself.

Specifically, here are the two areas that he would like to include lesson examples:

...

1. The Math and Science Classroom
Showcasing how iPads can be used as part of a student centered learning process. Examples could include Science research projects or exploration of a principle in Math. The emphasis is on discovery based learning processes rather than content delivery.

...

2. Model Lessons Plans
Examples of innovative iPad use that highlight 21st century learning objectives such as collaboration, creativity, communication, multimedia literacy and more.

These are the sorts of lessons that are both educational and get kids jumping up in the morning excited about going to school. In general, that’s what the book is about. The book isn’t a technical how-to guide (although it contains those sections as well). Instead I’m hoping it provides some clarity on how to use technology to address contemporary educational needs while motivating children to explore and learn.

...

Sam’s deadline is next Monday (Oct. 8)! If you’ve come up with any unique ideas and applications and want others to hear about it then please drop Sam an email ASAP. Of course, you’ll get full full credit in the book. He’dlove to offer fame and fortune as well … but we work in education!

Meet The $35 Tablet That Could Connect The World | TechCrunch

Meet The $35 Tablet That Could Connect The World | TechCrunch | ipad2learn #iPad #E-Learning #schreiben #lernen #m-learning | Scoop.it

TechCrunch just got its hands on the new Aakash UbiSlate 7Ci, the super-cheap tablet that will attempt to connect every student in India to the Internet:

...

Educators have long hoped that cheap computing devices could bridge the global information divide, but previous attempts have been dogged by disappointing performance, lack of Internet access, and financial barriers. The latest version of India’s $35 tablet comes equipped with WiFi and has an optional upgrade ($64) of a cellular Internet package of $2/month for 2 GB of data (roughly 25 emails, 25 websites, 2 minutes of streaming video, and 15 minutes of voice chat a day). More importantly, it is expected to launch this month in India with the government’s commitment to connect even the most remote areas to the Internet. The impact of a successful rollout is difficult to overestimate: rural schools that have been connected to the Internet show immediate and tremendous gains.

...

The barebones tablet is compact enough for even the tiniest hands to hold (7.5 inch display), boasts a front-facing camera just grainy enough for video conferencing (VGA 480×640), and browses the web about as fast as an iPhone (Cortex A8, 1Ghz Processor). Below, we’ve included a demo of the Internet browsing in action:

...

The potential education implications of a universally accessible, Internet-capable tablet are significant: the best research on computer-based education shows that students with little human instruction can perform on par with their privately tutored peers.

When Newcastle professor Sugata Mitra scattered unsupervised standalone Internet stations throughout the slums of India, in mere months, neighborhood children significantly increased their science, reading, and math knowledge, leading one reviewer of his to conclude that the impressive results were simply “too good to be true.”

In the States, the Federation of American Scientists is experimenting with an immersive 3D shooter game to teach biology. Users assume a heroic antibody, hunting down destructive viruses.

“The amount of detail about proteins, chemical signals and gene regulation that these 15-year-olds were devouring was amazing,” said Melanie Stegman, the “Immune Attack” creator. Commenting on the anecdotal evidence from her young participants: “Their questions were insightful. I felt like I was having a discussion with scientist colleagues.”

The actual results from airdropping computers into poor countries have been mixed. Championed by MIT’s One Laptop Per Child program, host countries in Latin America have spent millions equipping their young school children with director Nicholas Negroponte’s signature fluorescent green laptops. A partial country-wide rollout in Peru found minimal results from the One Laptop Per Child program, which supplied 850,000 laptops at a cost of $225 million. Dogged by unprepared teachers, students made no significant gains on math and reading, and some positive gains to critical thinking and verbal fluency.

In response, Negroponte tells TechCrunch that Peru’s negative experience was an execution mishap. Uruguay, which, according to the World Bank, is doing a great job of fully rolling out laptops to every single child, is having a much better experience.

One Laptop’s experience is not uncommon: many so-called “miracle” solutions fall apart after scaling. Charter schools, in the U.S. for instance, have really only found a few models that work at scale (like KIPP), despite many glowing media stories about their wild success.

The execution, infrastructure, and curricular strategy of the tablet will make all the difference. Aakash has an uphill battle for sure. But success could mean a fully literate world, connected to all the knowledge necessary to pull the poorest people out of despair.
