You are invited to visit Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/Tap.Swipe.Pinch.Course/ to discuss about tablet courses with your colleagues!

Erasmus+ training courses, funded by the EU, are a good way to get better skills with tablets and apps. Three different kinds of courses - general, music, English - focus on practical didactic use of tablets. Only schools can apply. You can read more about what to know about applying in http://ilpohalonen.wordpress.com.

How Games Can Hook Students With Short Attention Spans

How Games Can Hook Students With Short Attention Spans | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it
Craig Blewett, University of KwaZulu-Natal and Ebrahim Adam, University of KwaZulu-Natal Modern human beings have a shorter attention span than goldfish: ours is, on average, below eight seconds while the little fish can focus for nine seconds. These decreasing attention levels are driven by people’s constant use of technology. One study found that people’s dependence on digital stimulation has become so high that 67% of men and 25% of women would prefer to experience an electric shock rather than doing nothing for 15 minutes. Children are no different. They occupy a hyper stimulating world and find it difficult to sit …

Ditch the grammar and teach children storytelling instead

Ditch the grammar and teach children storytelling instead | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it
Storytelling in its way can have just as much complexity as music or mathematics. That we don’t really understand this craft – or that this is a craft – is partly because of the romantic myth of “inspiration” peddled by authors as much as anyone. It is taught (up to a point) in creative writing degrees – but it can be simplified enough to be taught to schoolchildren as well.

Six Ways the Teacher's Role is Changing | #LEARNing2LEARN #ModernEDU

Six Ways the Teacher's Role is Changing | #LEARNing2LEARN #ModernEDU | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it
During this time of significant educational change, we are forced to ask ourselves, what is the role of the teacher?

Teachers continue to be central to learning, but the role is changing significantly. Our children still need to develop real skills and real knowledge, but they also need to be self-reliant, resilient, and fully capable of re-inventing themselves. This means students must learn how to self-direct their learning.

So if students are self-directing their learning, what's the role of the teacher?

Teachers build the curriculum/lessons with the individual student based on his/her needs and interests rather than move through a fixed curriculum en masse.


Teachers provide the experiences and tools to access new knowledge in specific areas of interest as facilitators of individual pathways, rather than being a provider of the content or expert in one or every area,Teachers become experts in how people learn, not only in teaching.


Teachers support a community of learners in teams, possibly of multiple ages, rather than alone in classrooms with fixed grades of students.


Teachers have more autonomy over their daily schedule, and can be flexible to adjust their schedules to support student needs.


Teachers provide opportunities for real-world, connected, practical learning rather than isolated academics.
These are the types of changes in the teacher's role that are fundamental to developing students who are capable of independent learning and reinvention in a rapidly changing world.

So meaningful from a teacher perspective. Including technology in our lessons seem very simple; however, it definitely requires a purpose. Besides, looking for possible options in regards to the use of ICT tools is very tough since as teachers, we must be sure that the implementation of devices, virtual support, etc. will be as effective as expected.  Through the reading, you will have some ideas of how to get some support or assistance in relation to use, implementation, and effectiveness of technology.
