Good thinking here.
Miss D's comment, August 27, 2013 9:38 PM
Note sure I agree with 'sit at a table or chair'. iPads are great because they make learning mobile. By implementing this rule, you take this away. In my classroom, you see kids scattered around the room and on the veranda outside, sitting where they feel comfortable. We just have a rule that you can't leave the iPad unattended on the floor.

The cheat sheet to choosing effective education apps - Daily Genius

The cheat sheet to choosing effective education apps - Daily Genius | iPads in Education | Scoop.it
Since there’s such a push to bring apps into the classroom, it’s time to figure out which ones are right for you. I threw together this cheat sheet to choosing education apps that will hopefully help you quickly choose what works (and what doesn’t).

So what are some of the best education apps for active learning? What are the top ways to get students actively engaged and interacting with one another? There are some seriously amazing iPad apps that are terrific for project-based learning, active engagement, and even flipped classrooms.

This cheat sheet will help – but first let’s run through the questions you see in the visual.

5 Critical Mistakes Schools Make With iPads (And How To Correct Them) | Reality

5 Critical Mistakes Schools Make With iPads (And How To Correct Them) | Reality | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

Focusing on iPad-versus.-laptop comparisons stifles the ability to see how the iPad facilitates student-centered learning. iPads are devices meant to compliment computers, not replace them.

So, people who seek equivalent functionality become frustrated, and fail to realize the intrinsic benefits and features of the iPad’s native design.

 

Instead, schools should focus their energies on what iPads do best to engender active learning. iPads enable students to kinesthetically connect with their work (especially important for young learners). These tactile elements – using fingers to zoom, rotate in, pinch close, or swipe across – as well as increasingly interactive and immersive apps, facilitate hands-on learning.

 

Gust MEES: DON'T forget ALSO about that the working force needs people who are FIT in Windows Computers as THE main OS is STILL WINDOWS!!!

Just think, these students don't realize that iPads are not something to be used alone. I've seen many people with their tablets/pads and a laptop complimenting/corroborating with each other.

Using iMovie App in Physical Education Lessons - November 2014

Using iMovie App in Physical Education Lessons - November 2014 | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

This month I have been supporting the PE department with using the iPads to enhance their lessons and pupils to analyse skills. Last year Apple updated iMovie app to include features such as Split Screen, Freeze Frame, Video Speed etc. This year the update has made some of these features a little easier to find.

 

Split Screen: We have used this to compare videos of the same skill taken from two different angles. For example, a cricket bowling action.

 

Video Speed: We have used this by splitting part of a clip where the skill is most demonstrated and slowing it down.

 

Freeze Frame: We can stop a clip at any point and create a freeze frame. This freeze frame can be split at either end to create a separate clip and textual analysis added.

 

I would also like to say a big thank you for all the great feedback to the iPad Teachers App. We are only at the start of the content we can add to this so look out for the first update in mid December with even more ideas. Details of the app can be found at www.ipadteachers.co.uk

4th grade fun - Popplet, Screen Shots, & Nouns - STAAR TECHERS | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"The first two days of school were wonderful, but the third day….the third day is when I got to get in my zone. The third day I was able to bring the iPad cart into the class for the first time of the year. It’s a big deal. It’s a big deal to the kids and to me as their teacher. I thought because I did this last year it would not be quite as “magical” for lack of a better word, but boy was I wrong. Their excitement was contagious. I was able to introduce the students to one of my favorite apps named Popplet. It is so simple to use but very impactful. You can use it for any content and any subject. Today we used Popplet to review nouns. Here is how the day went:"
