iPads in the classroom: Moving beyond the Apps - The ICT Advisors | Leading authentic learning | Scoop.it
iPads, iPods and other tablets are becoming more commonplace in the classroom, and schools are filling their devices with lots of Apps. Teachers could be missing valuable opportunities to truly embed the use of iPads in the classroom.

Tablets in general (and not just iPads) can do much more than just provide apps 'for everything'. Teachers could be missing the wood for the trees (and lots of them!)

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 21, 8:16 PM

I think teaching by its nature is about leading. Do you have to leave the classroom? Do you have to do something official and formal? I don't think so. Being and becoming a good teacher might very well be enough. I look at those who are in School management and wonder. Largely, what we see is the same old same old done. It is re-forming and de-forming rather than trans-forming teaching.

Teaching consists of relational language. Learning, which necessarily accompanies teaching, is a language of outcomes. They need to work together and complement each other.

 

To paraphrase Maya Angelou, long after they forgot what you taught them, they will remember how you made them feel.

How to Use Google Drive for Descriptive Feedback Using Sharing Options - TapintoTeenMinds | Leading authentic learning | Scoop.it

"The consistent and effective use of Descriptive feedback in classrooms has become a popular strategy due to its positive influence on student learning. Based on the research of John Hattie, my colleague, Jason Lynn has given me an in-depth look at Hattie’s work and how we can use it in the classroom.

 

Although the research suggests that providing students with descriptive feedback has the largest influence on student learning, it can be difficult for teachers to find more time to provide this meaningful assessment as learning and assessment for learning tool with regularity."

50 Reasons It's Time For Smartphones In Every Classroom - TeachThought

50 Reasons It's Time For Smartphones In Every Classroom - TeachThought | Leading authentic learning | Scoop.it

"To be clear–learning can happen in the absence of technology. Integrated poorly, technology can subdue, distract, stifle, and obscure the kind of personal interactions between learner, content, peer, and performance that lead to learning results.

 

But increasingly we live in a world where technology is deeply embedded into everything we do. Thinking about it simply in terms of “digital literacy” puts you about 5 years behind the curve. It’s really much more than that–less about being connected, and more about being mobile.

 

There will be growing pains, and I’m sure educators that have brought in BYOD programs into their school can come up with 50 reasons it won’t work. But most of those 50 are a product of the continued poor fit that exists between schools and communities–the system and the humans it serves."
