8 Frequent Mistakes Made with iPads in School

8 Frequent Mistakes Made with iPads in School | Marisa's ELA Resources | Scoop.it

iPad mobility means that students can move about taking photographs, recording audio, and shooting video, in any number of places. They can make multimedia stories, demonstrate how to solve math problems, create and simulate virtual experiences of virtually anything, and on and on. The skill of learning to edit media to enhance a project will be essential for the future. Active creativity and personalized learning are some of the main assets of any tablet.

Stop trying to figure out if screentime is good for students | Marisa's ELA Resources | Scoop.it

The fact that we still discuss this is ludicrous. Simply ask yourself, “Is school is supposed to be preparing students for career success?” Of course! There are few careers where you would hear a debate about the need for access to technology. It’s a no-brainer that to be successful in the world, instant access to knowledge, people, and tools of communication are necessary. This is no different in our schools.

Post one same video on youtube and put it on  http://www.africatube.net/ and return ater five hours and compare the viewers rate and decide for yourself. Create your very own group or forum and control who watch it and invite everyone to watch the video. Above all, post video in English or in any language and viewers can watch video description in their own language. Try it and let us know your experience.

Education is not just about equipping students with knowledge - it's also about life skills and understandings. 

Demonstrating a responsible approach to skills, knowledge and the associated screen time is vital if we want to prepare our students for life beyond school.

Lectures Didn't Work in 1350—and They Still Don't Work Today

Lectures Didn't Work in 1350—and They Still Don't Work Today | Marisa's ELA Resources | Scoop.it

It’s all about engagement. I’ve heard things like a child’s attention span, in minutes, is equal to their age in years. That’s so not true. If children are engaged in something, they’ll spend hours on it. We have a 6-year-old grandchild who will spend hours working on Legos or Tinkertoys because she’s got something in her mind that she wants to build, and she’ll do it. If children aren’t paying attention, it’s not because of a decreased attention span—it’s because they aren’t given tasks that honor their dominant ways of learning.

When learners teach one another, work collaboratively on a problem, actively construct their understanding of a concept, interact socially and build relationships with each other and then develop a sense of belonging to a learning community, they make the behavioral transition from disengage to engaged learners.

How Digital Writing Is Making Kids Smarter

How Digital Writing Is Making Kids Smarter | Marisa's ELA Resources | Scoop.it

Writing used to be strictly an in-school activity. Now, kids do 40 percent of their writing outside of school. Called “life writing,” young adults’ social writing spans texts, tweets, social media, and blogs -- and all of it’s making kids more literate.

Are iPads and tablets bad for young children? | Marisa's ELA Resources | Scoop.it

Flewitt thinks that to deny children access to tablets is to "risk having one section of society that is growing up with skills and one section that is growing up without. You might think that it doesn't matter because they will develop those skills later. But it's not the same. They won't identify with it. It's not part of who they are … Children have been born into a world where these things exist," she says, "like we were born into a world where there were televisions, cars on the streets and packaging on food."
