10 iPad Apps To Record How Students Learn

10 iPad Apps To Record How Students Learn | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"

"For all of the analyses of academics, learning models, curriculum, 21st century thinking, assessment, project-based learning, self-directed learning, social media integration, iPads and related technology, and other emerging trends, how students learn is why we’re all here, yes?

 

And understanding how something happens requires observation as an early step. What’s developing, when and how?

 

Where are the misunderstandings? What is not clear? Where is the learning being successful that I’m missing? And how can I share not just the end product but the proces itself–the idea behind project-based learning–with a much larger audience?

 

Below are 10 iPad apps to get started in that direction."

Ralph Springett's curator insight, April 22, 2013 3:59 PM

Goodproduct, but if we are going to ask faculty to turn their study guides into ebooks they will need time and often they will need support to get the full benefit of the multimedia available.

6 Helpful Tips For The 1 iPad Classroom

6 Helpful Tips For The 1 iPad Classroom | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"While most educators and teachers are aware of the benefits that can arise in the classroom through the use of iPads and tablets, budgetary constraints can often limit the way that technology can be used to augment learning activities in smaller schools (or school districts)."

Michela- This article is extremely helpful since many schools do not have a budget for many technology devices such as the iPad. However, one iPad in the classroom is more than enough because it can be plugged in to any interactive whiteboard that will allow the entire class to engage with what is happening on the device. Also, students can use the iPad as a small group activity that will allow students to work on subjects they may not have enjoyed before but because it is on an iPad it seems way more exciting.
