Available via http://www.rm.com/_RMVirtual/Media/Downloads/ipad_lessonideas.pdf:

a 21 page pdf booklet from RM education with inquiry based lesson ideas, objectives and workflows around using various Apps and the iPad to achieve the learning outcomes.

e.g: “I’m a math teacher and I want to test my pupils’ understanding of key concepts explained in class. I give them an assignment ( individually or in pairs): they should imagine they are planning a school disco in aid of charity. Their task is to identify and research the possible costs, plan the budget for the event and answer some questions such as : What are the three main costs, what is the correct ticket price, how
many attendees should we have to break even and what is the value of the funds raised.”

Then goes on to outline an iPad App workflow for this learning task.

6 Types of Blended Learning [Infographic] | Edudemic

6 Types of Blended Learning [Infographic] | Edudemic | Switch On - "iPads in everyday education" | Scoop.it

Blended Learning is not so much an innovation as it is a natural by-product of the digital domain creeping into physical boundaries. As digital and social media become more and more prevalent in the life of learners, it was only a matter of time before learning became “blended” by necessity.

That said, there’s a bit more to Blended and “Hybrid” Learning than throwing in a little digital learning.

6 Types of Blended Learning

Face-to-face Driver
Rotation
Flex
Online Lab
Self-Blend
Online Driver
We’re going to talk more about Blended Learning in the June issue of Edudemic Magazine for iPad. For now, this infographic takes a different approach to the concept, labeling it “Disruptive,” and even offering an interesting matrix.

One interesting prediction? By 2014, 50% of all post-secondary learners will take a class online.

Six Examples of iPad Integration in the 1:1 Classroom

Six Examples of iPad Integration in the 1:1 Classroom | Switch On - "iPads in everyday education" | Scoop.it

Our teachers are not teaching to the iPad, nor are they teaching apps. They are teaching skills and assessing student learning in a more dynamic way. Many of our classrooms are flipped; project-based learning and assessments are being integrated more prevalently; and students are engaged in relevant, purposeful learning experiences.

Here are a few examples of what a few of our teachers have put together.
