In this four-part series, we’ll use the Someday/Monday template to explore four dimensions of using tablets, such as the iPad, in educational settings, examining how teachers can take students on a journey from consumption of media to curation, creation, and connection. Here, we’ll start with consumption.

10 Steps to a Successful School iPad Program

10 Steps to a Successful School iPad Program | iPads in the Inclusive Classroom | Scoop.it

iPads have certainly become a highly desired commodity in education. Apple is reporting that schools are purchasing iPads by a ratio of 2:1 over MacBooks. However, that rush to purchase the latest technologies often precedes the careful planning and preparation that’s crucial to their success as educational tools.

Stated simply, technology alone doesn’t have the capacity to improve education. It needs to be woven into a holistic approach to education that encompasses thorough planning and ongoing review of the skills and competencies required by the rapidly changing society that characterizes life in the 21st century.

This looks like a great app for recording feedback on students' work using your iPad. Just open a copy of their assignment and start annotating it and adding your feedback as a video and audio recording to send to them. The app isn't free, but at $2.99, it's still affordable.

Design Learning from the Extremes - "The Myth of Average"

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, July 2, 2013 5:48 PM

Each student has a jagged learning profile. They have strengths, averages and challenges. If you design learning for the average, you design it for nobody. We have created learning environments where we can not expect learners to do what we want them to do.

 

The average hurts everyone. Designing average destroys talents in two ways:

> The existing educational environment can not challenge learners as it creates an environment where they become bored and sometimes dropout. 

> It means that your weaknesses will make it harder for you to see your talent.  

 

It is all about nurturing individual potential.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 3, 2013 11:16 AM

We learn more from disruptions and outliers, but we desparately want agreement.

Deborah Welsh's curator insight, August 14, 2013 1:00 AM

Average is an interesting concept. Pinning students down to numbers or percentages in terms of what they can achieve does them a disservice and never tells the real story.

3 Tools for Exploiting the Wifi During Presentations

3 Tools for Exploiting the Wifi During Presentations | iPads in the Inclusive Classroom | Scoop.it

Coming as I do from a background in language teaching that emphasises that the teacher should shut up and get the students to do the talking, I often feel uncomfortable doing conference presentations, many of which still follow the format of; speaker gets up in front of audience with presentation - does presentation - audience listen (try to stay awake) and desperately try to think of a few questions at the end to prove they were awake and listening.

There is a big difference between watching something and interacting with it. The interactive component changes everything when it comes to creating new experiences for kids. Being engaged and actively participating in something—with feedback, collaboration, imagination and creativity—is a completely different experience from viewing a passive narrative.

Technology-Rich Learning:Students First, Not Stuff | iPads in the Inclusive Classroom | Scoop.it

For us teachers and education leaders, this moment of rapid and radical technological change is not what we signed up for, is it? A trillion web pages; a billion smartphones; movies, TV shows, newspapers, and novels on demand, wherever we are, whenever we desire; near ubiquitous courses and coursework, with teachers, tutors, and technologies that let learners of any age learn whatever they want, whenever and wherever they desire. "Always on" access has created an abundance of learning potentials that scarcely existed even a decade ago.

Very good overall article looking at technology intergration into education and what it means to be 'educated'

CERT's curator insight, May 8, 2013 4:01 AM

The spirit of technology use, and being 'NetSmart' as Howard Rheingold puts it lies with the people and the ways in which the tools are exploited. It is rather useless to force an educator to "use the interactive whiteboard". It is certainly not going anywhere near the "technology-rich learning". To be able to start getting a glimpse at what it really means to teach with technology we have to change our way of teaching completely and focus first on our learners and on the activities that learners can do. I keep emphasising, technology is not about maintaining teacher control, but it is of giving the learners the freedom to learn, unlearn and relearn.

Essential rules for effectively using iPads in middle school classrooms | iSource

Essential rules for effectively using iPads in middle school classrooms | iSource | iPads in the Inclusive Classroom | Scoop.it

"In the two years of being a principal of a school that has been using iPads on a 1:1 device to student ratio, I have learned a lot about classroom rules that are needed to ensure that the iPads are an effective learning tool rather than a learning distraction.

 

If managed properly, iPads offer amazing benefits to learning and are almost limitless classroom tools.  However, if not properly managed, iPads can also be a detriment to classroom learning and be a major distraction for students.

 

During my time using the iPads in the classrom, I have found the following 11 rules to be essential for keeping the iPads as a learning tool and not a learning distraction."

The app runs on a mobile device and allows users to add animated speaking characters to a selection of backgrounds or to the users' own images. You can then either use text to speech to write a script for the character, or you can record your own voice and the app will lip-synch you text to the character. This is very quick and easy to do. Here's how.

"A few weeks ago I posted here a poster on iPad basics which many of you have downloaded to use with their students in the class. Today, I am sharing with you another great resource on iPad. This is not a graphic but a quick reference card on everything you and your students need to know about iPad. From the hardware to networking features , this little manual can serve as a leading guide to a better manipulation of  your iPad.
 I am not sure how much iPading you are doing in your classroom but whether you use iPad just occasionally or you adopt it as a consistent learning and teaching tool,  the reference card below will definitely give you a hand in improving your iPad use. I suggest that you share it with your students and go through it with them section by section and make sure they understand it before they start using their iPads again.
