iPurpose before iPad

iPurpose before iPad | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"The two above images are good examples of purposeful thinking about iPad usage in schools.

One, a screenshot of an oft-used tool known as 'iPad As.. by edtechteacher.org', focuses on what the iPad can be used for and provides links to various apps that can be utilised for those functions. It goes without saying that it is a very useful website for schools thinking about iPads. It provides nutshell explanations of a number of apps that relate to each iPad as… category as well as pricing. It’s a good introduction into the functionality of the iPad that counteracts the misconception of iPad as consumption NOT creation tool.

The other, The Padagogy Wheel, is one of many variations on applying Bloom’s Taxonomy of skills to iPad apps. It develops from the general learning action verbs/skills we want our students to acquire to technology based activities that relate to these skills and finally to a selection of apps that can support this development."

This post made my eyes water a bit. Don't know what that means exactly ;-) But I do know I've had some great leaders!


I think every leader CAN be great - it's also up to the school and teachers to help the principal BE a great leader, too!

Love this image - technology is a tool we can either use badly or effectively; its not the 1 answer we should expect to work without any effort!

What Works in Schools Is Real Work

What Works in Schools Is Real Work | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"The best type of curriculum for preparing students for the workforce is one that focuses on real-world problem-solving. It sounds simple, but for the first time, we have clearly established a link between students learning 21st century skills and future work success."

This report is based on a survey done by Gallup for Microsoft Learning and the Pearson Foundation. There are many findings of interest in this report. Three are below (quoted from the report).

* The majority of respondents (59%) reported that they agree or strongly agree that they developed most of the skills they use in their current job outside of school. Only 15% disagree or strongly disagree, indicating they felt that they developed these skills in school.

* Developing 21st century skills in the last year of school is positively correlated with higher perceived work quality later in life. In fact, those who have high 21st century skill development are twice as likely to have higher work quality compared to those who had low 21st century skill development.

* Across the 21st century skills included in this study, real world problem-solving is the significant driver of higher work quality; however, less than two-thirds (63%) of respondents reported developing this skill often in the last year of school and that number drops to less than half (39%) for high school graduates

Is your school providing students with these skills? The survey also noted that 59% of participants reported learning these skills outside the classroom. To go directly to the report: http://www.gallup.com/strategicconsulting/162821/21st-century-skills-workplace.aspx.

Working in a corporate industry for twenty three years and seeing the rise of operators, school leavers would benefit from 21st technological studies and how that applies to the workplace.

Larry Davies's curator insight, June 2, 2013 3:34 PM

The link is real, and PBL is the key.
