I've heard of QR codes and have scene them used in mobile advertising. I've even heard of some really good ideas on how to use them in class including a QR code scavenger hunt. Our school is 1:1 with iPads in grade 9-12, and I've been pondering for awhile on how I could use QR codes in my own classroom. Then, and idea struck me as we approach Ch. 6 & 7 of Huck Finn. In those chapters, Huck stages a crime scene to make it look like how was murdered. Brilliant, I know. But most students don't see his genius behind this. So I decided to do a QR Code Crime Scene prior to reading these two chapters.
With AppsGoneFree sharing how many great apps are free and available, I've found that even a 64gig iPad has limits, especially when you're focused on creating content. So, after a similar conversation with a colleague, I decided to go through my budding app collection and get rid of the stuff taking up space...I'm still cutting.
No doubt all our readers in the education field are well aware of the explosion of iPads and tablets in the classroom and their ability to make learning easier and more interactive. But we suspect at least some of you are still reluctant to turn the new tech loose on grading, an area where you could be needlessly wasting hours assessing students with an antiquated system.
People increasingly have more than one device, and they switch between them many times a day. Nexus—Google’s hardware line for Android devices—gets rid of the hassle. Just sign in with your Google Account and everything is there ready to go, whatever device you’re using: photos, emails, contacts, bookmarks, even your entertainment on Google Play.
Mobile learning is here to stay. Students and teachers alike can build entire libraries of apps and web tools that let them learn and do, well, anything. We’ve covered this just about every day and love finding new resources to share.
When you think of iPads in schools, you probably think of a cart that's wheeled into a classroo...
The researchers found that "personal 'ownership' of the device is seen as the single most important factor for successful use of this technology." They found ownership is fundamental for increasing students levels of motivation, interest, and engagement. Personal ownership promotes greater student autonomy and self-efficacy. Best of all, ownership encourages students to take more responsibility for their learning.

The Chicago Public Schools (CPS) iPad Project seeks to dramatically transform the classroom.
Such a transformation is made possible through use of the low‐cost Apple iPad tablet computer. In an effort to drive “big change” and to promote meaningful classroom usage, Information & Technology Services offered iPad grants to schools. In return, we were able to identify best practices that could dramatically transform the way teachers teach and the way students learn throughout the District.
It’s a tool, it’s a tool, it’s a tool. The iPad is not going to replace teachers or ‘fix’ education. There is a cost implication that must be taken into account and only an educator will know if it is right for their students.
One of the things that really excites me about the iPad is the ability of the students to show their learning. I am not talking about the end product here, I am talking about the act of learning that can be shown by students recording their processes. It is often about the student putting the information they have learnt into a context. It is this contextualisation that helps the students create meaning.
