Why so many schools fail to get impact from iPad - LearnMaker

Why so many schools fail to get impact from iPad - LearnMaker | Student Support | Scoop.it
70% of UK schools are now using mobile devices in the classroom, according to Tablets for Schools. The vast majority of those devices are likely to be iPads, yet how many schools can you name who are standout users of the device? That is to say, how many schools are using the device to deliver true 21st century transformational lessons?

The answer, disappointingly, is very, very few. In the past two years, I’ve worked with over 200 schools across the spectrum of the UK education system. Only a handful remain memorable from what I watched them use iPad for. But what about the likes of ESSA Academy and Cedars School of Excellence, I hear you say! Both have transformed their schools and results through the use of iPad. The answer is far simpler than you’d probably guess. It’s all about the training of staff.

9 iPad Apps that Assess Student Learning

9 iPad Apps that Assess Student Learning | Student Support | Scoop.it

"As an iPad Lab teacher, I work closely with the classroom teachers to deepen and assess their students’ understanding of the material taught in the classroom—oftentimes, teachers ask that I spend additional time in the lab covering material that they’ve already taught.

The apps listed below are some of my favorite apps to use in these instances. Technology allows students opportunities to demonstrate and engage in learning in ways that go beyond using paper and pencil.

A tedious review session, suddenly becomes a something to look forward to. Completing a project that demonstrates the child’s knowledge about a topic becomes a task to be enjoyed and flaunted.

Use these apps to take your classroom learning environment and assessment to the next level."

From tips on how to effectively use Chromebooks in your instruction to subject-specific apps to enhance your lesson planning and delivery, these collections will definitely have you covered. However, as we were wading through our archive we pulled out some Chromebook apps which have really been popular among teachers. These are particularly helpful for those of you  looking for an initial list of essential apps to use on their Chromebooks.

6 Free Android Math Apps to Help You Survive Math Class

6 Free Android Math Apps to Help You Survive Math Class | Student Support | Scoop.it
Do you want to be an astronaut? You’ll need strong math skills. How about a scientist? An engineer? An accountant? A meteorologist? All of these careers — and a lot more — will require you to have an excellent mathematical ability.

Jobs that are in some way linked to math typically pay more, are better for your brain, and have fewer potential applicants.

There’s just one problem: for the vast majority of children at school and students at university, math is a) very hard, and b) very boring.

So, what to do? Fear not! Android to the rescue! Here are some of the best free Android math apps (Android math games exist too!) to help you survive math class.

According to the National Education Association (NEA), the number of U.S. students enrolled in special education programs has risen 30 percent over the past 10 years. Additionally, the NEA reports that nearly every general education classroom in the country includes students with disabilities, as three out of every four students with disabilities spends part or all of their school day in a general education classroom.  Technology can help to achieve greater inclusion for these students in education & learning.  Explore here 15 Assistive Technology Tools & Resources For Students With Disabilities.

Another way MindMup is now allowing you to work with larger groups easier is a quick notification mechanism when someone changes a node. You'll get a small speech bubble pop up for several seconds and disappear automatically, so it's easy to keep an eye on the entire team or classroom. At the moment, this only works for node text changes, but in the future we'll add other notification types.

[Infographic] Learning Myths: Debunked

[Infographic] Learning Myths: Debunked | Student Support | Scoop.it
Perhaps the most pervasive myth about education is the ubiquitous “learning styles” myth. A quick Google search will bring up millions of hits. Many of those hits are, tellingly, for websites trying to sell you their “learning styles” program. One of the main reasons the myth is so widespread is because, on the surface, it seems very intuitive. As teachers change up the ways they teach subjects, learners who were previously confused seem to now understand the material. Some people are naturally good at sports; therefore it stands to reason that if we can explain other subjects to them kinesthetically they will grasp the concepts quicker. Unfortunately, as simple and as eloquent a solution this seems to be, the science just isn’t there to back it up.

Rigorous scientific studies have been conducted to determine the efficacy of learning styles, and they all come to the same conclusion: using a student’s preferred “learning style” does not improve learning in any reliable way. The evidence against the myth is so substantial, there is even a cash reward ($5000 at the time of the writing) offered for anyone who can provide proof that preparing lessons while taking learning styles into account can produce meaningful learning benefits. The bounty is still unclaimed after nearly ten years in existence. Anecdotal evidence most certainly exists, but under scientific scrutiny none of it holds up.

Wheel of Autism Apps - When looking for apps for students on the autism spectrum (ASD), it is important to look at all educational apps and not just those that are tagged as autism apps. They have many of the same learning needs that other students have. This list was developed to provide apps based on common learning characteristics and traits that are typical for students with ASD. It is important to remember that all students learn differently and selecting apps should be based on the unique learning needs of the student.
