Redefining the Writing Process with iPads

Redefining the Writing Process with iPads | Malta Digital Curation and Learning | Scoop.it
Take a moment to think about how you learned to write. What steps did you go through? What was your process? Most of us learned the same core set of skills on paper: organize, draft, edit, revise, t

A really nice example of reshaping a common process at school using the SAMR model.

tammy bailey's curator insight, January 15, 2014 10:48 AM

Using the iPad would make the research, peer editting process, and revising process easier.  Most students that enjoy writing do not enjoy the revise, editting process.  The use of the iPad definately streamlines the writing process!

Mary Kate Lavin's curator insight, January 23, 2014 10:08 AM

This article describes the writing process by using an ipad to organize, compose, and edit their written language.  Many students do not enjoy writing because of the process it takes for them to write (think of an idea, form the letters, make a complete sentence, and then edit the work)

Why the Next 10 Years of Educational Technologies will Smash the Last 10

Why the Next 10 Years of Educational Technologies will Smash the Last 10 | Malta Digital Curation and Learning | Scoop.it

When you think about the advance of technology in society in the last decade, the progress has been phenomenal – just take a look at these examples to see how far we have come in such a short space of time. Now, think about education. Think about the technology in your school ten years ago – perhaps a computer suite with an unreliable bank of PC’s; CD-ROMs; discs; slow, irrelevant programs; staff scared of using IT; and so on.

While consumers enjoy the 'fun' of many of these technologies -- education is where their applications will soar. #art #tech @techinthearts
Kevin Morrison's curator insight, September 20, 10:42 AM
This is all great news but as a parent and having watched as my kids go through K12 it is abundantly evident and clear that none of this technology is worth a thing unless the educators that are using it as a tool understand it and can wield it to their benefit. Sadly they are having a tough time getting to grips with simple devices like iPads and Chrome pads with NO special software other than the reporting software. To which I am finding they are having trouble just posting things such as grades and test scores.
Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.'s curator insight, September 20, 12:26 PM
They paint a rosy picture. I hope it's true!
