But here’s the thing: the history of social media actually goes back a lot further, and its roots can be found in blogging, Google, AOL, ICQ, the beginnings of the world wide web and, perhaps surprisingly, CompuServe.

Wonderful Visual on SAMR As A Framework for Education 3.0 ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Wonderful Visual on SAMR As A Framework for Education 3.0 ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"Proponents of the sociolinguistic perspective to the study of literacy ( e.g.Paul Gee, Collin Lanksheare, Michelle Knobel, Brian Street, to mention but a few ) view the developments of literacy and with it education as a direct result to the sophistication of the social and cultural aspect of human life. Some of them like Collin and Michelle associate the evolution of education to that of the web and hence the nomenclature education 1.0 (related web 1.0), education 2.0 ( related to web 2.0), and education (3.0 related to web 3.0). This association, however is not haphazard for there are many commonalities between each pair."

"In order for students to tackle the multi-step word problems they'll be asked to solve as early as elementary school, they need to have mastered their addition, subtraction and multiplication facts. By answering 4 + 12, 15 - 5, 9 x 7 and 18 / 3 quickly and accurately, students can focus on reading word problems to figure out what the question is asking them to do. There are tons of fun apps that help children build their math fluency through games and flashcards. Check out some of these fantastic math apps."

11 Tips For Students To Manage Their Digital Footprints by Justin Boyle If you’ve scratched your head over suggestions to manage your “digital footprint,” you aren’t the only one. A surprisingly large percentage of people have never even heard the phrase, let alone thought about how to manage theirs responsibly. Among students, the percentage is probably higher. We’ll talk about ways you can help students understand and manage their digital footprints before they get themselves in trouble.

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"The interest in inquiry-based learning seems to ebb and flow based on–well, it’s not clear why it ever ebbs.

 

In short, it is a student-centered, Constructivist approach to learning that requires critical thinking, and benefits from technology, collaboration, resourcefulness, and other modern learning skills that never seem to fall out of favor themselves.

 

Regardless, St Oliver Plunkett Primary School has put together two very useful images that can help you populate your iPad–or classroom of iPads–with apps that support both inquiry-based learning (the second image below), and a more general approach to pedagogy based on Apple’s uber-popular tablet (the top image)."

Control What Students Can Do with iPad Using Guided Access Functionality ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"If not properly used, iPad can also be a source of a major distraction for students. In fact, one of the common thing that happens in classrooms using iPad is that some students take the opportunity when  iPad is on to wander off topic and get lost in iPad meanderings. So next time you want to use iPad with students make sure you activate the Guided Access functionality which will limit what students will be able to do on iPad."

Our iPad Classroom: The One Where We Switch to Front Row | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"My 4th graders have been using the newly revamped Khan Academy website on our iPads since Mid-November. Things have been going great and I have seen a fantastic, better than average, increase in MAP Math scores from August to January.

 

I read a Tweet recently that mentioned an App called Front Row (or Front Row Ed Math). It is very similar to Khan in many ways but has some thing unique to it that I really like. Both Khan and Front Row are FREE and both give teachers access to "More Data About Their Students Than They Could Ever Use.""

PowerPoint for iPad - Worth a Second Look [VIDEO] - teachingwithipad.org

PowerPoint for iPad - Worth a Second Look [VIDEO] - teachingwithipad.org | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"Despite my ramblings and complaints about the $99 subscription needed to properly use Microsoft's office last week, I have come to enjoy using PowerPoint for iPad in the classroom. No, I have not paid the money to subscribe. In fact, I chose to actually delete Word and Excel as I don't see a need for them, and they were taking nearly 1GB of my iPad storage.

 

If you want to just use the free version of the three apps, you don't have the ability to edit nor create files. However, for PowerPoint, the “read-only” feature is actually very useful in my teaching. Since most people will have ready-made PowerPoints already created, they will be able to access and project them to their class using a projector."
