How Tablets Can Enable Meaningful Connections for Students and Teachers

How Tablets Can Enable Meaningful Connections for Students and Teachers | iPads - Box Hill Senior SC | Scoop.it
In the best learning environments, sharing work doesn’t just mean posting on the Internet, it means building connections with a wider community, so that sharing becomes part of a set of relationships and patterns of exchange.

Nik Peachey's curator insight, August 29, 2013 3:26 AM

Some really good points in this article. "The greatest risk of our investment in tablet computers is that nothing will change. We could find in a few years that, at great expense, we’ve traded paper textbooks for digital textbooks, paper notebooks for digital notebooks, and paper multiple choice tests for digital multiple choice tests. We may find that as educators we simply take these expensive new devices and digitize existing practices."

Agree - if existing practices can do the job well, why change - it all begins with a drawing, is usually my starting point for any good idea…

Using Dropbox in the Classroom

Using Dropbox in the Classroom | iPads - Box Hill Senior SC | Scoop.it
Dropbox is more a mega-utility than a simple tool. It begs you to think up new ways to use it, in & out of the classroom. Great for school.

I'm sure that has never happened for most of you. However in case it does, I'm going to offer you a few suggestions from my experience of how to save your lesson."

Half an Hour: A Few Words on ePortfolios

Half an Hour: A Few Words on ePortfolios | iPads - Box Hill Senior SC | Scoop.it

On the one hand, the portfolio may focus predominately on learning and reflection. Such a portfolio may come to resemble a student's journal or sketchbook.  On the other hand, the portfolio may be used primarily for evaluation and assessment, becoming more a documentation of achievement that a personal workspace. As Barrett notes, the former model focuses on the ePortfolio as process, while the latter contemplates the ePortfolio as product.

flea palmer's curator insight, October 29, 2013 9:32 AM

Interesting post by Stephen Downes about the different functions of e-portfolios. Downes believes that in the future students will need to manage their online learning records and products, while linking to a range of services such as YouTube and Flickr. He links to an interesting project at University of Mary Washington which encourages students to create their own 'web presence' independently from any service providers. 

Luis Miguel Claudio's curator insight, October 30, 2013 8:29 AM

Reflexión de Stephen Downes sobre la importancia de los e-portfolios, entendido como proceso y como producto. Concluye con la idea que que en el futuro serán equivalentes a las actuales certificaciones.

Como siempre, muy interesante.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s curator insight, November 2, 2013 8:09 PM

This is clearly defined as e-documentation of learning maintained within a e-portfolio.

Links to free mini-lessons on using the iPad from Edudemic.  It took me 5 minutes to look at the first lesson which was ideas on publishing web pages to ePub format.  I am going to check out all these lessons.
