Joan Ganz Cooney Center - iPads – A Tool, Not Alchemy, for Education

Joan Ganz Cooney Center - iPads – A Tool, Not Alchemy, for Education | iPads in EdTech | Scoop.it

There is a big difference between watching something and interacting with it. The interactive component changes everything when it comes to creating new experiences for kids. Being engaged and actively participating in something—with feedback, collaboration, imagination and creativity—is a completely different experience from viewing a passive narrative.

10 iPad Apps To Record How Students Learn

10 iPad Apps To Record How Students Learn | iPads in EdTech | Scoop.it

"

"For all of the analyses of academics, learning models, curriculum, 21st century thinking, assessment, project-based learning, self-directed learning, social media integration, iPads and related technology, and other emerging trends, how students learn is why we’re all here, yes?

 

And understanding how something happens requires observation as an early step. What’s developing, when and how?

 

Where are the misunderstandings? What is not clear? Where is the learning being successful that I’m missing? And how can I share not just the end product but the proces itself–the idea behind project-based learning–with a much larger audience?

 

Below are 10 iPad apps to get started in that direction."
