Kleinspiration: 5 Creative Apps to Connect with Parents from your Classroom!

Kleinspiration: 5 Creative Apps to Connect with Parents from your Classroom! | iPads to Engage Learners | Scoop.it

"Having a positive relationship with the parents of your students can help your year get off to a great start. I've found that parents often just want to feel connected and involved. Many potential issues can be resolved when they feel like they understand what is going on inside the classroom. As a parent, I know that my husband and I often feel the most uneasy when we don't know when an event is happening or how to help with an assignment. Therefore, as a teacher, I've searched for and tried out numerous tools to help be more proactive in the classroom to solve any issues before they evolve into problems. The feedback I've received from families has been overwhelmingly positive.  "

These are great apps if you use evernote
Lou Salza's curator insight, June 1, 2013 5:02 PM

I started using Evernote for storing notes from meetings so I could retrieve them on any device at any location.  It is searchable and does way more than keep notes stored and accessible. This site will lead you to excellent explanations of Evernote and its functionality. It can be particularly useful  for teachers and their students !--Lou

Vicki Butler's curator insight, June 7, 2013 2:30 PM

I need explore the power of Evernote.  The power to use this as a 'notebook' for learners intrigues me.

11 Sample Education BYOT Policies To Help You Create Your Own

11 Sample Education BYOT Policies To Help You Create Your Own | iPads to Engage Learners | Scoop.it

"We’re putting together some research for some upcoming BYOT policy content, and in the course of doing so found many existing policies enlightening. For starters, it is clear that some districts were more open-minded entering their BYOT programs than others. Many “policies” (not included below) were really more of a set of rules and consequences for breaking the rules than they were a supporting framework for teachers and students. In the end, every situation is different. There is no single “right way” to implement a BYOT program, so we’ve included 11 widely varying policy styles below, with each authoring school or district named inline."

"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."

Teachers who are fighting for stronger tech integration in their schools often come against opposition from people who believe technology not have a positive effect on student learning. This is particularly true with iPads, devices that many people see as a device for content consumption, not creation. Below is a list of studies into iPads and learning, with dot points about what students the study relates to, the subjects involved and the results.

The Dos and Don'ts for Integrating iPads

The Dos and Don'ts for Integrating iPads | iPads to Engage Learners | Scoop.it

"Put your wands away!" Professor Umbridge from the Harry Potter stories would tell the students at the beginning of each class. After a few classes when Professor Umbridge would make the announcement, "Put your wands away," the students did not have to do anything because they never even bothered to take the wands out. Interestingly enough, I witnessed a similar experience in my own wizarding school, um, I mean just school. Forgive the allusion to Harry Potter, but there are just too many wonderful parallels.

 

Our freshman and sophomore students all had iPads (wands) and some of the teachers would have them looking up information, collaborating on an app, or watching chemistry movies. But some teachers were just like Professor Umbridge: "Put your iPads away. If I see them they will be confiscated." Student knew not to even expect to use them in these teachers' classes. Most surprisingly, some of these teachers were the "superstars" of the campus.'

"With the abundance of apps in the app store comes the question of what apps are really worth using with students in class and how to get your hands on them.A teacher who has a busy schedule with increasing workload in school is highly unlikely to have the time and energy to go online and sift through piles of apps to find the ones he/she wants to use. This is a time consuming task ."
