With Educreations, students can replay a teacher’s lesson online on or their iPads as often as the need to master the content. It also takes the camera off the instructor and turns the focus toward the content, and the content is key, right?  It’s like a video of your chalkboard or smartboard."

"Brainstorming is an important process for any subject and helps improve writing, organizer group ideas, inspires discussion, and provides a roadmap for projects. When brainstorming is combined with sketching, drawing, and graphic organizers it helps learners to organize their thoughts for better flow and organization. Moreover, learners can make connections to previous knowledge and expand on what they already know. This means the brain will process the new information into long-term memory. Our learners can utilize free mobile apps to brainstorm on the go whenever they feel inspired.  The following are brainstorming apps for IOS/Android devices.

"Education—there’s an app for that. In fact, there are hundreds of thousands of apps on the market designed for teaching and learning. As more schools bring tablets into the classroom, educators like Genia Connell are finding that apps are game changers.

 

“I have yet to see anything in education that generates excitement and motivates students the way tablets do,” says the third-grade teacher from Leonard Elementary School in Troy, Michigan. Connell points to e-reading apps like Storia that not only engage students but also level the playing field for struggling readers. “Differentiation has become easier with apps because so many of them have built-in levels of complexity.”

 

By many accounts, some of the most powerful education apps are used for teaching reading and supporting differentiation for students with disabilities. But their capabilities are endless. Developers have created easy-to-use programs that serve as learning platforms for students and as organization tools for teachers. Here are 50 fabulous apps that are helping to change the face of education."

Tips for Sharing iPads in Schools - iPads in Education

Tips for Sharing iPads in Schools - iPads in Education | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"iPads are designed as inherently personal devices. There are no user logins or custom desktops for different users as there might be on a laptop or desktop. Many schools however share iPads between classes and students in much the same way that they share laptop carts. Laptops can accommodate different user logins and therefore protect individual student data.

 

iPads aren't laptops and can't be used the same way. Most iPad apps cache your login information. In other words, once you've logged in, they automatically remember your login information and open your data when the app is opened again. The little love letter or risqué rap lyrics that Joey wrote will pop right up on the screen for the next user who opens the app.

 

A 1:1 environment is where every student gets his own dedicated iPad and it's unquestionably the preferred model for school use. You'll have to overcome quite a few obstacles if you expect to share iPads between students. iPads just aren't built to be shared. Having said that, there are some considerations that make it a little easier and safer to share them. Here's a few:"

A Principal's Reflections: The Device Conundrum - 1:1 vs BYOD

A Principal's Reflections: The Device Conundrum - 1:1 vs BYOD | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"As we continue to advance in the digital age schools and districts are beginning to re-think pedagogy and learning environments by instituting either 1:1 device programs or Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives. In my opinion, schools that wish to create the most relevant and meaningful learning culture will go in one of these directions. It is tough to argue the potential impact of either program that is implemented diligently and with a focus on learning that will not result in the enhancement of essential skills sets that our students need to succeed in today's digital world. Probably the most significant impact, either 1:1 or BYOD can have is in the area of teaching digital responsibility, citizenship, and the creation of positive footprints online. After all, in the real world that we are preparing our students for, technological literacies and proficiencies are the cornerstones of numerous career paths."

Ralph Springett's curator insight, March 29, 2013 3:25 PM

For higher education well managed BYOD appears more suitable than a 1:1 programme, yet many of the learning benefits are the same. Higher education  can learn a lot from the results of the 1:1 research. New 1:1 research is now on the ReGear Learning website.
