Techlandia - Grumpy Old Teachers 25

Techlandia - Grumpy Old Teachers 25 | iPads in Education Daily | Scoop.it
Scott Bedley and I continue to be snarky. But snarky in a good way...the
way you are when you know your administrator isn't within earshot. It's
like Friday Happy Hour talk, just on demand. We think that our friend, Eric
Saibel, said it best. 

Somehow any conversation involving @jonsamuelson and/or @Scotteach
chases AWAY the grumpy feelings. https://t.co/K9MXTyn4ts

So take a listen to our new show. It might actually cheer you up?

Start From The Bottom With These Apps Here

Start From The Bottom With These Apps Here | iPads in Education Daily | Scoop.it
Don't Know Where To Start? Scroll To The Bottom Of This Post. 

I have been teaching with iPads since the beginning. I broke out the credit
card for the iPad 1 and lined up to purchase the day it came out, did you
really think I could pay cash on a teacher's salary, and started using it
with students on Monday. Think about it, the iPad ONE...this stunning
tablet had no camera, and if you wanted to project it, you stuck it under
your document camera. 

Luckily, we had been using a shared cart of iPods for about a year. That
prepared us for the inevitable question that I have been answering for
years now: 

"What is the best app for ___________?" - Fill whatever subject or
learning concept you like in the blank 

We just want a quick solution or place to go to get started. The problem is
there are so many different scenarios for this question. 

* What is the learning goal?
* Do you want the students to have choice?
* Do you want them to be creative?
* Do you want them to collaborate?

Not to mention the workflow side of things.

* Is it a shared cart?
* Do you have a system so students can use the same iPads over the
course of a few days?
* Do you have access to put on your own apps?
* Do you want to share their work? 
* How do you plan to share it?
* Is your district locking down and blocking sites you should have
access to?

So when your district asks you to create an app list there are so many ways
you can go. The iPad isn't built to be a one size fits all kind of item.
There isn't an app list that can cover a K-12 school district, in my humble
opinion. When we previously tried to create one for just elementary the
people I worked with wanted to put over 90+ apps on the recommended list.
That is absurd! Teachers do not have time for that. How does a student feel
looking down at a home screen with all those apps? Overwhelmed is the first
adjective that pops in to my mind.

Cam Newton Provides A Teachable Moment

Cam Newton Provides A Teachable Moment | iPads in Education Daily | Scoop.it
The popular "teachable moment" happened yesterday

The "Big Game" provided us with a real world opportunity to share with
students today. I love NFL football. I have spent many years talking about
it with 4th and 5th graders over my years of teaching. One of our most
popular math games was "fantasy football math." That would all end today
with the final act known as "Big Game." Tomorrow we would go on with dreary
old "regular" math for a while. 

Last night I saw something interesting in the postgame press conference.
Cam Newton, who I really like, could not get himself through his press
conference. He wore his hood over his head, (BTW I LOVE hoodies) and could
barely answer questions. This goes against how we have seen him act all
year. He acted very child-like and not like a grown man that had to answer
some tough questions. It made me think, what did Russell Wilson say last
year after his terrible defeat? Luckily I have Google, and I could see
video of how he reacted last year. I think you could keep going on down the
list of losing QB's and see what the results are. I only looked at Russell
Wilson and Peyton Manning from the last two years. 

I think this is a great opportunity to teach students a life lesson using
people that many elementary students idolize. I think it would be
interesting to have students look up the videos on their own and compare
and contrast the actions of both quarterbacks. If it were me, I would give
them the assignment in Google Classroom, put students in groups, and let
them research and discuss the differences in a Google Doc before bringing
the class back for a discussion. 

There is a lot of information that would be good for students to process
and reflect on. I would continue to go back to this example throughout the
rest of the school year. 

I am not indicting Cam Newton. No one is perfect. I can't even begin to
imagine how it would feel to be on the losing end of a game of that
magnitude. I love how he gives footballs to kids in the crowd and all the
other things he does for the community and the Play 60 campaign. However, I
think the interview is a great talking point for students. I have provided
the links for Cam Newton's interview, as well as Russell Wilson's from last
year. There will be commercials. You have been warned.
