Designing for Learning's curator insight, February 3, 5:22 PM

A nice iPad app that allows you to import PPT slides or create new ones, and produce either a screencast or presentation. This could be great for students who want to practice a live presentation so that they can play it back for peer or self-assessment. Better still, it also includes some interactive polling tools to encourage audience participation. Definitely worth a look.

Using the iPad would make the research, peer editting process, and revising process easier.  Most students that enjoy writing do not enjoy the revise, editting process.  The use of the iPad definately streamlines the writing process!

This article describes the writing process by using an ipad to organize, compose, and edit their written language.  Many students do not enjoy writing because of the process it takes for them to write (think of an idea, form the letters, make a complete sentence, and then edit the work)

andrew mulinge's curator insight, December 9, 2013 4:19 AM

My question about giving a $700 machine to a student is how can you ensure they won't lose it, sell it or have it stolen? What happens when these things happen? To students who are already facing financial difficulty as it is, how would they expect them to pay? I don't see ipads to be as important as paying rent or food for a month. But this is something to consider for sure as not every student will return it. 

 

Teachers also are not too sold on how it does not work properly. Along with the inevitable distractions students will bring by having an ipad, the functionality of the ipad is in question. Some schools simply do not have the infrastructure in to maintain wifi for several hundred ipads in one place. Maintaining the ipads require routers in place that withstand a massive amount of bandwith. In addition, it is very expensive for the school to keep the ipads up to date, as well as frustrating for the teachers who have to learn a new app every quarter.
