Good thinking here.
Miss D's comment, August 27, 2013 6:38 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.

App Combo: Folidfy and QR Codes - Class Tech TIps | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"This year at ISTE in Atlanta, I shared with teachers one easy way to add QR codes to three-dimensional shapes.  

 

The app Foldify lets users create a template for a variety of three-dimensional shapes.  Instead of drawing a picture or adding family photos, I used a QR code generator on my iPad, saved the pictures to the Camera Roll, and placed them on my Folidify creation.  They are easy to assemble after your print them out and great for having students roll a dice for a mystery writing prompt or math problem."

Do Teachers Need iPad Training? - Edudemic

Do Teachers Need iPad Training? - Edudemic | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"We have come to a point in the education technology journey where it seems rather dull to still be asking if the iPad is the right device for the classroom. The answer, in case you’ve missed the last few years of debate is that it is a great option, but this is not universally accepted and never will be. Nonetheless, one of the attributes you’ll hear put forward is that it is easy to use because of the intuitive nature of iOS. This is absolutely true; you can put the iPad into the hands of almost any child and within a short period of time they will have mastered it.

 

So does it then follow that you can out the iPad into the hands of teachers and expect the same results?

 

No."

Green Screen iPad review | iPad Insight | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"As a young wannabe film maker (or nerd as it’s more commonly referred to) in the early 90s, I used to love grabbing the family camcorder and knocking up some quality Hollywood remakes. My greatest hits included remakes of Jurassic Park, Ghostbusters and the criminally underrated original production “That Army Bloke II”. I’m still waiting for an offer for the screenplay for that one. Me and my sister had to be pretty creative with our movies as special effects were limited to fade to white and macro. Nowadays with the iPad, the world is your digital celluloid oyster and Do Ink’s excellent Green Screen app is a fantastic addition to the amateur film maker’s armoury. "

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 Education | 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.

Tony Vincent's Learning in Hand - Blog - The Single Most Important Factor for iPad Success in Schools

Tony Vincent's Learning in Hand - Blog - The Single Most Important Factor for iPad Success in Schools | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"The Technology Enhanced Learning Research Group, lead by Kevin Burden from the University of Hull, investigated the use of iPads at eight different schools in Scotland. The study took place between March and summer 2012 and analysis was completed in October 2012.

The researchers found that "personal 'ownership' of the device is seen as the single most important factor for successful use of this technology." They found ownership is fundamental for increasing students levels of motivation, interest, and engagement. Personal ownership promotes greater student autonomy and self-efficacy. Best of all, ownership encourages students to take more responsibility for their learning."

Find Saved Passwords on iPhone & iPad in Safari`- OSXDaily

Find Saved Passwords on iPhone & iPad in Safari`- OSXDaily | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

``The Autofill feature of Safari makes logging in to websites much easier in iOS, not having to remember and type in every single password for every website under the sun that you come across. While saving passwords with autofill is undoubtedly helpful, it can also mean it’s easier to forget what a password is, since you’re not typing it as often.

Fortunately iOS makes retrieving and viewing saved web passwords easy, allowing users to quickly see a password from their iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. This is handled through Safari Settings, and is protected by the same passcode that protects the device in general (yet another reason to always use an iOS passcode!).

"I recently learnt a little known iPad/iPhone trick – that is really useful, especially for people using an iPad in a teaching and learning situation.

If you have a newish headphone set that has a volume control on the headphones – then this can be used to take a photo or video on the iPad. Pressing the volume down button on the headphones – will have the same effect as pressing the button on the screen when in the default camera app."

"Yesterday, at the Catholic Schools Foundation Summer Tech Conference at Boston College I saw a fantastic panel discussion on using technology in K-2 classrooms. One of the really neat things that I saw was an example of students using Morfo 3D Faces to create short biographies. Morfo 3D Faces is an iPad app that you can use to create a talking picture of person’s face. You can take a picture of a person or you can take a picture of a picture of a person (think taking a picture of a picture of George Washington). Once you’ve captured the picture you can customize the face by altering the eyes, mouth, and nose to move as you talk. After customizing the picture you can record yourself talking."
