The Paperless iPad Classroom with the Google Drive App

The Paperless iPad Classroom with the Google Drive App | ipads for special need | Scoop.it

"Have you read The Paperless Classroom with Google Docs by Eric Curts? http://bit.ly/104vztx ; If not, you should. It is a great way for Google schools to harness the power of Google for sharing documents, and establishing a workflow for students to turn in work for teachers to grade and return in a paperless environment. I love it. In fact, I liked it so much that I decided to pay homage to it with a version that is dedicated to doing the very same thing on the iPad using just the Google Drive app.

 

Regular readers will have seen my last post, How to Use Comments on the Google Drive iPad app http://bit.ly/14koJzE . For me, this was a key change to the Google Drive iPad app, and one that had huge implications for the iPad classroom. It inspired me to think about just how much you can do in Google with an iPad and the Drive app, and I soon discovered that you can do a lot more than you might think.

 

So, with the blessing of Eric Curts himself, I sat down and went through all the steps he meticulously outlined for the desktop version of Google Drive, and converted as many as I could to the equivalent actions in the Google Drive iPad app. Then I added some additional steps for other things like taking documents offline, or grading PDFs, images and movies."

"UPDATE 6/20/13 - The Poetry Anthology is now available on the iTunes Bookstore!  Here is the link: http://ow.ly/mfzhX 

 

This book is a multimedia anthology of poetry created by sixth grade students, illustrated with a variety of apps, and compiled using the Book Creator app.

The poetry was written in Mrs. Hockenbrocht's Language Arts class.  Students were asked to illustrate their poetry using images, text, and audio.  They were to use and cite copyright friendly images and needed to include at least one video.
They needed to use a variety of apps to create the media for this project. When done with their chapter, I uploaded each book from Book Creator to Dropbox. I then downloaded each book onto one device and used the merge feature in Book Creator to combine each chapter into one anthology."

we are not paying enough attention to the 'sandwich' learners.  I think we could do a better job and what we learn here will help us on either end.  I realize they are a very unique group.  But being in the middle has special advantages.

Padagogy Wheel gets an Upgrade: Bloom’s Taxonomy, iPad apps and Learner Characteristics

Padagogy Wheel gets an Upgrade: Bloom’s Taxonomy, iPad apps and Learner Characteristics | ipads for special need | Scoop.it
Good friend and mentor Allan Carrington recently enhanced his "Padagogy Wheel" a visual representation of how iPad apps can be integrated into learning experiences using Bloom's Taxonomy.

Jim Lerman's curator insight, July 10, 2013 5:18 PM

Allan Carrington has done some outstanding work with his (currrently) 3 iterations of the Padagogy Wheet. It is definitely worth it to go to his blog and explore the development of the framwork from its origins. 

 

It is important, too, to acknowledge the work of Andrew Churches and Kathy Schrock, and quite a few others, in elaborating this conceptual scheme.

 

We should also pause and remember that Bllom's taxonomy has 3 domains, not just the single Cognitive domain. The  Affective and Psychomotor are equally as imporant. If we focus on content only, to the exclusion of social, emotional, nutritiional, and fitness expectations, we miseducate our students, shortchanging their development in significant ways.

Pauline Wilson's curator insight, July 12, 2013 6:09 PM

Another great example of how Web 2.0 tools fit into Blooms Taxonomy

Presentation Apps: A New Take on an Old Task - Lindsey Fuller | Reading Today Online | ipads for special need | Scoop.it

"For my recent Engage post, I asked my students to review apps we had used to create presentations in our classroom. The apps included a variety of tools for making traditional slide show displays. But the beauty of the devices we are using in our classroom is that we can go so much further, and break past those conventional boundaries.

With that in mind, I would like to share some of the apps my students utilized in creating presentations that were of the less traditional variety. "

"PlayMaker is a school that has been designed and developed by the GameDesk Institute funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and launched in partnership with New Roads Schools.  So what is so special about this school?  The school’s philosophy is that children learn best by playing, making, discovering and enquiring.  They aim to transform the learning process and bring the education system into the 21st century.  Rather than simply talking at children and telling them what to learn, the children are empowered to customise their own path and develop meaningful relationships with subject material."

I have recently been working with organizations on how the introduction of gamification into their training and development strategy plans for employee skill development.  The interesting thing as well is the application of the concepts to both hard and soft skills, that allow for returning to the results in the future as well as updating of skills as the individual progresses.

Ci sono moltissimi games finalizzati all'apprendimento, da quelli che stimolano la discussione, a quelli basati sulla ricerca.
