"The biggest and most oft-heard criticism of the iPad usually revolves around it not behaving like a desktop PC or laptop. The people making this complaint are simply missing the point. Apple aren’t trying to make a laptop replacement, why would they? They make a couple of extremely good ones! The iPad is a new kind of device that asks you to think and work differently.

 

The fact that it isn’t a laptop, to me, is its greatest attribute.

 

The SAMR model suggests that there are 4 degrees of sophistication for using technology in education:"

iPads in Education: 2 Tricks that Every Teacher Should Know! – Digital Harbor Foundation's EdTech Link Blog

iPads in Education: 2 Tricks that Every Teacher Should Know! – Digital Harbor Foundation's EdTech Link Blog | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"It is winter break across the nation, and I thought I would us this time to deliver a gift to those teachers who have been incorporating iPads into instruction and their daily classroom routines. iPads are great tools for learning. In a 1:1 class, they can provide students with personalized learning experiences automatically tailored to their unique ability. Likewise, the data gathered can be a priceless planning tool for the teacher. I was blessed this year with the opportunity to incorporate 6 iPads into my classroom, and although I don’t get the privilege of personalization, they have proven themselves for small group activities, paired assignments, independent centers, and even self-documentation."

The Pursuit of Technology Integration Happiness: Apps for the 12 Days of Christmas - ClassBadges

The Pursuit of Technology Integration Happiness: Apps for the 12 Days of Christmas - ClassBadges | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"ClassBadges is a free, online tool that allows teachers to reward/award students with virtual and customizable badges for their accomplishments.  Badges can be customized for behavior, academic success, mastery of content, etc.  Currently you need to request an invite to use the service.  This invite provides a Class Code that you use to create accounts for students so that they can track the badges that they have received

 
ClassBadges has over 100 designed badges to choose from, thus allowing teachers to create a unique opportunity for their students.  The badges provide a great way for students to track and motivate students as the work on large projects or study for exams.  I can see this working successfully in elementary and middle school.  I am not sure about the impacts in the high school classroom.  For more information, see the video below."
