The iPad is so much more than a consumption device. Here are some great tips for using it more collaboratively.

Kim Sheehy's curator insight, May 28, 2013 5:54 AM

Jennie Magiera is a digital learning coordinator of 25 public schools in Chicago. She identifies Schoololgy as being her favourite iPad App for fostering collaboration. It is free and includes important discussion features including interactions displayed on a timeline.

 

This can be useful for teachers to monitor student questions and answers to problem based learning in the classroom. Students are able to see and respond to each other’s posts while providing the teacher with good knowledge of student learning and understanding of the content. It also provides opportunities for all students to have input.   

 

This resource could be used with students to support the Australian Curriculum: Technologies processes and production skills sub-strand of Creating and interacting online - 4.7 Manage the creation, sharing and exchange of information with known audiences and apply agreed social protocols to protect people when communicating online.

How to use the iPad an advanced version.

Carmenne K. Thapliyal's curator insight, May 18, 2013 5:48 AM

Training teachers before the widespread use of a certain tool in the classroom environment is a must. If you don't know how to use a tool, you cannot understand its affordances and consequently will not know the possibilites of exploiting it appropriately.

What is impressive about this setup are at least two things: 1) It is reasonbly priced at around $200 US and 2) it is highly portable. If you don't have a screen, find a white or light colored wall and go for it.
