That is all it takes. Being brave enough to change just one thing. Instead of this...do that. Tech is a tool. Pick the right tool for job!

This is great advice for all change - It is often easier to change one thing and then another and another rather than to face a complete transformation.

How to Use iPads for Personal Professional Development - Indiana Jen

How to Use iPads for Personal Professional Development - Indiana Jen | iPads In the CEO | Scoop.it

As an educator, when I am given a new tool my first thought is “how can I use this in the classroom? How will I roll this out?” However, I have learned over the years that I need to pause, step back, and think, “Okay, how is this tool going to make my life and job easier? How can I use iPad to make me a better teacher?” Before I rush ahead with how I am going to roll out this device in my classrooms, I need to effectively incorporate it into my life and figure out how to use iPads to make me a better teacher."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 13, 2013 6:33 PM

A new collaborative word processing program is now available...Draft. This is quite a bit different than Google Docs, and has some features that may convince you to give it a test drive. 

When you collaborate on a document are you frustrated that others may make changes to your document, and it is at times difficult to find the original version. Draft has you accept or reject each change that is suggested.

You may also "mark versions" of your work and compare them.

Draft is not as robust as Word (or Google Docs) but it is a simple word processing program that has additional features not mentioned here. As far as I can tell it is free at this point, but there is one feature, called Ask a Professional" where you can send off your document and get help. From what I have read there will be a fee for this.

20 random iPad Maths Apps that help cover all areas of curriculum | Mr G Online

20 random iPad Maths Apps that help cover all areas of curriculum | Mr G Online | iPads In the CEO | Scoop.it

"Around this time last year, I wrote a post about the lack of engaging Maths apps on the iPad that went beyond “skill and drill” number activities. Since then, developers have introduced a greater range of apps across all areas of the Maths curriculum that can be used to enhance the Maths teaching and learning in your classroom. Here’s a selection of 20 apps that cover Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability ( these are the Content strands (CS) Australia’s Mathematics curriculum has been categorized under ). They also cover the proficiency strands (PS) of Understanding, Fluency, Problem Solving and Reasoning. I’m sure other countries’ curricula are similar in many regards and you will be able to make the connections"

I think this depends largwly on the deployment model. Too many schools are trying to use the iPad as s hred device which limits content creation.
Meleny Weber's curator insight, December 15, 2013 2:15 PM

This article is very similar to the cartoon about the iPad because they both have the same idea that technology might not be what it's all cracked up to be. This article talks about how school districts are shelling out tons of money to get students and classrooms iPads, without even knowing if it is worth it. The author ends by saying there still is not enough data to tell if all the money and technology are even helping the students. The article brings up the fact that a textbook costs about 20% of an iPad. It is even less expensive because it can last many many years without needing to be replaced, or without having to get electronically fixed/maintained.

I agree with what was said in this article, but I wish there was more evidence behind the points the author was making. I do agree that schools should be researching the effects of iPads in the classroom much more before going out and spending millions of dollars. There does need to be test classrooms to show the effects, but after those results, then schools should seriously consider buying iPads. This article is interesting as well as the cartoon because it shows the other side behind technology in the classroom. Most articles and blogs only talk about the benefits of incorporating iPads, and all the awesome new things they can do for your classroom. Nobody ever really sits down, and thinks, "wait, does this even help the students learn?". The students' education should be our number one priority, and sometimes I think people forget that.

After reading this article, I found myself to be slightly less supportive of technology in the classroom. I still believe that some technology is essential like smartboards, or projectors, but now I am not too sure about having iPads in the classroom. Does it actually help them learn, or is it more of a distraction?
