The iPad Education Revolution Stalls Out - Gizmodo

The iPad Education Revolution Stalls Out - Gizmodo | iPads in EdTech | Scoop.it
Yesterday, the Los Angeles Times reported that its sprawling hometown's school system, the second largest in the US, would be withdrawing from last year's ambitious promise to supply all 640,000 students with an iPad. Good. The Los Angeles United School District just dodged a $1 billion, tablet-shaped bullet.

I have one to add. It is not so much an issue but a way of working that functions for me. Students often won't want to put the devices down and listen once they are in their hands. I use the "upside down iPads" command for when I want their attention. They can also turn them upside down to indicate that they have finished a task.

"Choice boards are powerful tools for providing students with both choice and direction in their work.

 

The idea, creatively shown below from teacher/blogger Monica Evon in the form of a menu, allows teachers to guide students towards certain forms of academic practice, or demonstration of specific standards. If, for example, you want students to show they understand how to calculate the area of a circle from real-life applications, you can create 8 different ways for them to show it."

A Must See Chart on SAMR Model and iPad Teaching ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Must See Chart on SAMR Model and iPad Teaching ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads in EdTech | Scoop.it

"Technology integration in instruction is a process that starts with setting out clearly defined objectives and ends with assessing learning outcomes against these objectives, and all along the way several tools and strategies are employed to attend to the overall performance of this process. Hence, the first question teachers need to ponder when thinking about using technology in class is not what kind of technology to use but what do they want to achieve behind using this technology? On a deeper level, they need to find answers to questions such as: Does this technology constitute a a good addition to the learning task ?  Can the same learning task be performed without using technology? These and several other questions  should come to the forefront when you start planning a technology-based learning activity.

Clearly, if there was still any doubt, technology-assisted learning expects a great deal more from the teacher. It does NOT make your life easier. The processes advocated in this article demands a teachers who is unafraid and willing to engage in hard mental spadework.
