Lee Hall's curator insight, June 10, 2013 4:55 PM

It is more fun to learn creating you own story. The word story makes it sound like a fantasy tale, but it could be steps in a process, a summary of what you have learned in class, or a biography

Certainly not my favourite way of assessing but a useful way of seeing progress. I sometimes use quizzes as formative assessment and sometimes as a pre assessment to gauge current knowledge.

"Over the past few months I’ve been experimenting with guided math strategies in my classroom. One station in my classroom has been dubbed as the technology table. This table has been primarily used to differentiate instruction to improve students’ understanding of mathematical concepts. I’ve been using the tech table for the past few months with great success. There are five iPad apps that are used at this table. Unlike many math apps that offer only demo versions, I’ve found the below apps to be useful in the classroom."

5 Ways to Effectively Integrate an iPad in the Classroom

5 Ways to Effectively Integrate an iPad in the Classroom | IPads in education @ Sunnyside | Scoop.it

"Every teacher can successfully integrate an iPad in the classroom by remembering it is not the central focus of the classroom. Effective instruction is the central focus. Instead of thinking about what to do with the iPad, teachers must decide if there a tool that will help them complete a lesson and meet their objective. Rather than creating new lessons just for the iPad, look at current lessons and see if there are activities that the iPad can help with. Technology should make life easier."

I haven't had a chance to use this yet, but if it lives up to the blurb it should be good. One of the features of mobile learning is the "small chunks" of learning thto users expect, so this could offer a good way to provide that.

Steven Blomdale's curator insight, March 6, 2013 7:35 PM

 In schools across Australia there is strong support for linking learning in Technologies with learning literacy skills. Learning in Technologies places a high priority on accurate and unambiguous communication (ACARA, 2013).Implementing digital technologies in learning areas such as English allows special education teachers to facilitate and accommodate the learning needs of students. This is achieved through integrating assistive devices such as the iPad and its applications to develop critical literacy skills needed in the 21st century.  Consequently special education teacher have a better opportunity to develop important General capabilities such as literacy (LIT) to allows student to become literate as they develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions to interpret and use language confidently for learning and communicating in and out of school and for participating effectively in society (ACARA, 2013).

 

 

This website suggests various applications that can be used on the ipad to assist special needs students. The list of  applications were selected to improve and develop students reading, writing and spelling. They engage the students through making the activities, fun and engaging, which I think is important when teaching special needs students.
