In this post, Amdy outlines some great lessons that take advantage of the iPad, but there's no reason they can't inspire similar lessons In a BYOT environment. From the article:
"At Burlington High School in Burlington, MA, we are entering our eighth month of a 1:1 iPad initiative that began in September 2011. Don't get me wrong, we think the iPad is a great device for learning and gives each of our students a dynamic learning tool that can be used across the content areas and to accomplish a variety of tasks. Many of the critics claim that we are backing our students into a corner by giving them one brand and one skill set to learn exclusively on one device. This is not the case at Burlington. Furthermore, I have support."
"At DonorsChoose.org we have noticed a recent trend in technology-based project requests. Teachers recognize that we live in an age of information and are excited to bring items such as iPads, laptops, iPods, and Kindles into their classrooms. Eric Crouch of Columbus, GA created a video about how he uses iPads to engage his first grade students. Take a peek into Mr. Crouch’s classroom as he discusses the benefits of learning through iPads."
This Project Tomorrow Speakup report is worth a read for those interested in BYOT, mobile learning, and self-direted learners: 56% middle school students, 59% high school students would like to use their own mobile devices at school.
Let's listen to those students, shall we?
