That about sums it up...However as a teacher spends more time with the iPad and is able to use it as tool to help extend the walls of the classroom, and sees how students collaborate, problem solve, and create the teacher realizes that the iPad is just a tool and it is how he/she uses it in class that will make all the difference in the world.  Kinda like IWB; once upon a time if you had an IWB in your classroom regardless of how it was being used one thought they were effectively integrating technology in the curriculum.  Now many classrooms do not have IWB because they are not student centered!

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | iPads  For Instruction | Scoop.it

"The interest in inquiry-based learning seems to ebb and flow based on–well, it’s not clear why it ever ebbs.

 

In short, it is a student-centered, Constructivist approach to learning that requires critical thinking, and benefits from technology, collaboration, resourcefulness, and other modern learning skills that never seem to fall out of favor themselves.

 

Regardless, St Oliver Plunkett Primary School has put together two very useful images that can help you populate your iPad–or classroom of iPads–with apps that support both inquiry-based learning (the second image below), and a more general approach to pedagogy based on Apple’s uber-popular tablet (the top image)."

This is a very logical organization of apps.  It would be interesting to compares other schools or districts app usage in this manner.

Thank you John Evans for sharing this infographic on creating QR code scavenger hunts via iPads on your scoop.it/t/ipads-in-education page.  

Catherine Smyth's curator insight, December 12, 2013 3:38 PM

There are many affordances for QR codes in history. Pose an historical inquiry question and get students to gather clues (evidence) using primary sources embedded with a QR code at a museum, local community, school etc. Or, get primary students to create their own QR codes for artefacts. This could engage students in historical inquiry and the analysis and use of primary and secondary sources.

R.Conrath, Ed.D.'s insight:

Title: Easybib: An Online Research Resource Students Shouldn’t Be Without; Presenter: Russ Conrath

 I went to this session as my school has considered purchasing a site license for EasyBib. Russ did a great job going over the highlights and features available to pro account users. EasyBib Pro is not all that expensive considering the size of my student population. Russ had a nice compilation of student and teacher testimonials in video format. He showed us his screencasts that he has made available to students to refresh/remind them how to use it if he is unavailable. NICE. Russ compared using this tool to math classes using scientific calc; we still teach concept, but the tool makes it less painful to apply the concept in citing a source. TRUE THAT! The site has plenty of perks as well, like searching the web right from EasyBib. EasyBib can do the web evaluation for a user, making that part of the research process easier as well. I don’t know if all my classes would use this, but I am thinking some would love it! We may take a more serious look into this purchase again.
