iPads Changing the Way You Learn
This site is a good place place for sharing ideas about transforming normal k-12 classroom into global learning communities. Students should be introduced to information literacy, global communications, collaboration, and building strategic relationships. Students should be encouraged to create their own learning opportunities to prepare then for a life of eventual career change situations.

Computational thinking is one of the core objectives that runs through the computing program of study in England from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 4. Before computers can be used to solve a problem, computational thinking refers to understanding the problem itself and the ways in which it could be resolved. Software engineers and computer scientists for example, routinely engage in computational thinking. As a higher order thinking skill, computational thinking has applications both across and beyond the school curriculum ...

Elliott Masie weighing in on blended learning.

"The future will offer some exciting extensions in the blended learning arena as we add adaptive and responsive capabilities to learning design. Imagine a system that could track what you as a learner need in terms of learning options. Throughout a course, it could offer you an extended video, a link to a key peer with expertise, the ability to read the content in your native language, or the opportunity to access a dynamic FAQ developed by monitoring other users’ blended learning activity."

An excellent article that explores the link between Minecraft and the concept of transmedia education.  It underscores the importance of defining transmedia as a cross-media experience and critical 21st century literacy (and not immediately escalating to images of a Hollywood franchise).  It also contains links to a couple of very good 'transmedia education' resources if you haven't read them.

Over the past few years I have facilitated a number of iPad workshops with teachers from across the country.  One observation that I have made is that when anyone (not just teachers) are new to iPads (or any device), they have a difficult time deciphering the meaning of the icons that appear consistently throughout apps.

It's crucial, however, she agreed, to understand that the iPad "was simply a tool" and that it was an adjunct to the traditional interventions that aimed to improve communication and other developmental advances.
