Improving Instruction – Increasing Immersion With the iPad in the Foreign Language Classroom | Emerging Education Technology

Improving Instruction – Increasing Immersion With the iPad in the Foreign Language Classroom | Emerging Education Technology | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

The best way to learn a foreign language is through immersion, but immersion is nearly impossible to replicate in the traditional educational environment. In my opinion, the iPad is the most promising tool available to date to foreign language educators to help recreate the immersion environment for students outside of the classroom.

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

This term I have been working with upper Key Stage 2 pupils to develop interactive adventure style games in Book Creator. One of the features of the app is it allows you to link objects such as images and text to other pages within the book. For images, tap on the image to select it, then tap on the Info icon and use the hyperlink box to type in the page number. For text, highlight the text withIn the text box and you will see a hyperlink option.

This has enabled us to create games where choices, questions and decisions are asked of the user/player throughout. We have then used this as a stimulus for writing, not only creatively but also instruction and advertising. Above are a few screen shots of an example book I made but I didn't want to show the pupils too much as I wanted them to come up with their own ideas.

While there are currently a number of workflow solutions and approaches within Google Drive that classroom teachers can take that range from manual organization and file / folder sharingto advanced automation with tools such asDoctopus, Google Classroom provides a viable option that strikes a balance – blending tight integration with Google Drive, an intuitive interface and advanced features that experienced Google Drive users are looking for.

Is iPad Teacher Training a Necessity? - teachingwithipad.org

Is iPad Teacher Training a Necessity? - teachingwithipad.org | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"The following excerpt was taken from a recent article on Edudemic, by Adam Webster (@cagelessthink).

 

"If you give a child a device they will sit and play with it until you ask them to stop and perhaps even after that they’ll still keep playing. If you give one to a teacher, they’ll do what they can when they can, but it might well sit in a drawer for a long while before they get the opportunity to really test drive it. Beyond the constraints of time, it is also worth remembering that there are plenty of teachers who learnt their trade in schools where technology simply didn’t exist and many who don’t see it’s value."

 

I completely agree with this. Kids will learn by themselves if you give them the time. Teachers are so busy with prep work that they don't have time to play and discover the same amount that a child would. Even for myself, this summer, I haven't put too much thought into learning new developments for education in the iPad realm. When school comes again in about a month, this will undoubtedly change."

App makes bulletin boards come alive at Green school - New Jersey Herald

App makes bulletin boards come alive at Green school - New Jersey Herald | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"The bulletin boards throughout Green Hills School may look normal — with colorful paper and pictures covering them — but hover a tablet or smartphone loaded with a special app over them and they turn into learning tools, complete with videos and interactive lessons.

 

“I didn't want there to be all these passive areas throughout the school,” Superintendent John Nittolo said. “I wanted there to be chances for people to interact, to manipulate, to find info that changes so it's not static.”

 

The brainchild of Louis Rossi, the school's mathematics and ThinkSTEM coach, each bulletin board — technically known as “Augmented Reality Interactive Boards” — gives students an opportunity to learn away from the classroom."

Use of QR codes and Aurasma can create an augmented reality where students simply need to hold their iPad up to an image or code to receive information. These are great for scavenger hunts and any activity students need to gather ideas, but here is an idea to use them with bulletin boards. This is hopefully something we can do in the Library soon!

4 Free Apps That Teach the Basics of Coding - We Are Teachers

4 Free Apps That Teach the Basics of Coding - We Are Teachers | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"If your class is like mine, the kids are always talking about playing video games! Rather than discouraging that interest, I want to harness it to encourage a higher level of thinking in my class. That is exactly what happens when kids explore coding. I love watching their faces as they try to process that people have to "tell" technology what to do in order for a game to work. 

For many kids, the thought of creating games is even more exciting than playing them. Supporting their interest in gaming is important because the process of coding promotes problem-solving, creativity, collaboration and communication skills. Below I have listed four apps that are great places to start learning about coding with young kids. '

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 4:23 PM

Games don't grow on trees. They have to be created by a human droid that writes thousands and thousands lines of code. Ask your class,"If you want to make video games when you grow up, raise your hand "? I'd bet as you glance around the room, most of your students' hands would be up. Coding is the source that makes it all possible. Introducing coding concepts at an early age also makes it easier to learn-- much like learning a foreign language as a kid is easier than learning as an adult. These apps are free and can provide a platform to at least introduce the beginning concepts of gaming. What should the character be doing, how do I end the story, who saves the princess, etc. One I've used in my classroom is Daisy the Dinosaur.
