10 Steps to a Successful School iPad Program - iPads in Education | iPads and Tablets in Education | Scoop.it
iPads have certainly become a highly desired commodity in education. Apple is reporting that schools are purchasing iPads by a ratio of 2:1 over MacBooks. However, that rush to purchase the latest technologies often precedes the careful planning and preparation that’s crucial to their success as educational tools.

Jessica V Allen's curator insight, December 13, 2012 10:56 AM

As teachers continue to explore student centered learning and student negotiated inquiry, it is important that students have tools that can help them work together, investigate, and create explanations of their deep understanding.  iPads are a great tool for those goals and this helps schools see how best to begin that process... with careful planning!

Ludmila Smirnova's curator insight, December 13, 2012 1:45 PM

Middletown,NY school district won a huge technology grant for 4 years. They are planning to go with purchasing 1:1 mobile devices. Kudos for that!

1:1 iPad Initiative: A Four Year Study & Review - Te@chThought

1:1 iPad Initiative: A Four Year Study & Review - Te@chThought | iPads and Tablets in Education | Scoop.it
The Franklin Academy High School implemented a 1:1 iPad deployment a the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year. Over the course of the next two school years, the pilot was expanded to include all grades 9-12 in the high school. This deployment has reached 475 high school students and all teaching staff. Our K-8 program deployed iPads across the grade levels in the form of class sets and mobile carts.

This study targeted our 1:1 deployment at the high school to investigate the impact the device has had on teaching and learning. The survey used to gather the student data was administered in April of 2014. Students included in the survey used the device anywhere from 1 to 4 years. The students use the iPad while at school and home.

Results of the survey hope to shed light on the impact the use of the iPad has had on academic gains as well as the development of the most important non-cognitive skills our program is founded upon.

iPads + project based learning = limitless possibilities - Daily Genius

iPads + project based learning = limitless possibilities - Daily Genius | iPads and Tablets in Education | Scoop.it
Though more than two years into my school’s implementation of project based learning, yesterday, I found myself excited all over again. I was helping a second grade teacher enhance her landforms PBL by using Padlet as part of the KWL process and suddenly realized that this approach to student-centered learning has truly become a part of who we are as a school.

My adventures in combining PBLs and iPads began with a gift of two carts. I had just started taking the PBLU online courses when the head of our independent pre-k through eighth grade school challenged each grade-level team to teach one unit using the PBL approach while finding authentic ways to draw in iPads. As the lower school technology integration person, I immediately went on a quest to find a guinea pig willing to plan and co-teach a PBL unit incorporating iPads. This is the story of that first experience. . .
