The Innovative Educator: A Friendly Guide to Deploying iPads at Your School

The Innovative Educator: A Friendly Guide to Deploying iPads at Your School | iPads at Sanborn | Scoop.it
THERE IS A LOT TO LIKE ABOUT THE IPAD WHEN IT COMES TO USING THEM IN THE CLASSROOM. IT’S LIGHT AND FAST. IT TURNS ON INSTANTLY. THE BATTERY LASTS ALL DAY. BEST OF ALL, IT’S ABOUT HALF THE PRICE OF A MACBOOK. LET’S FACE IT, PRICE MATTERS WHEN YOU’RE BUYING AT SCALE.



For personal use, the iPad is a breeze to set up. Turn it on, connect to a wireless network, enter your Apple ID, and you’re ready to go. If you’re already a resident of the Apple ecosystem, your apps are waiting for you in on a “Purchased” list in the App Store and backups of your other devices are available via iCloud for download to your current device. If you’re a new convert, getting started and downloading apps is a relatively painless experience.
There is also a lot to like about iOS. It’s a lean, mean operating system. It’s use of sandboxing keeps it relatively clutter free. iOS doesn’t do a lot, but it’s pretty good at what it does do.

iPad App Retells Frankenstein, And Hints At The Future Of E-Books | iPads at Sanborn | Scoop.it
The concept of an “e-book” is a strange one. Just consider the idea of pages on a screen--is that metaphor really the best way for us to explore written content? And do e-books still need to books at all?

I Want to Teach Forever: Make Your First iPad Project About Using It For Academic Success | iPads at Sanborn | Scoop.it

"So one of my first projects using the iPads was to get them to think about ways the devices could help students do better in school.

It was originally supposed to be a mandatory project, but I assigned it far too close to end of the grading period for that to be fair. That's why it became an extra credit project. I would highly recommend doing this project with every iPad-wielding student."

Apps in Education: Year 5 App Review - Apps that help them learn. | iPads at Sanborn | Scoop.it

"Miss Martins is a eLearning Reference Teacher at a fantastic systemic Catholic School in Sydney's east. She has been working with Year 5 classes to document which apps they use to concrete their own learning. This is a fantastic way to start a conversation with your kids about how we learn and how individuals have different learning requirements. Wallwisher was the perfect way to document and then share this reflective process. I love the fact that this could then be shared with other students, other classes, other teachers and even with parents. So what were some of the apps these students identified as ones that contributed to their learning. Here we go....."
