PD, PD, PD! Train Your Teachers Before Deploying More iPads!

PD, PD, PD! Train Your Teachers Before Deploying More iPads! | Mobile Learning in PK-16 & Beyond... | Scoop.it

Technology teacher training must go beyond how to turn-on a device with a brief overview familiarization of its features and apps. It must also include teaching “behavior changing” strategies and techniques to be truly effective in the transition to a 21st century digital learning model. The correct answer to overcoming technology obsolesce… make teacher professional development a key part of every technology purchase!

5 Tips to Prepare Teachers for 1:1 iPad Projects | Terice T. Schneider's Digital Home

After talking to many of my colleagues over the last few days, I realize there are many schools looking at some version of iPad deployment and they want to do it right. In order for the iPad to be a great learning tool, you’ll need your teachers fully committed to it. It requires time and effort to prepare teachers for such a deployment, so make sure you have staff in place to do it.

EdTechSteve Blog: Our BYOD Policy and Process

EdTechSteve Blog: Our BYOD Policy and Process | Mobile Learning in PK-16 & Beyond... | Scoop.it

Our school is in the midst of piloting BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) with students. I like the way we've done the pilot- we basically opened it up for students before creating an official policy. By doing this, we were able to see problems or issues come up naturally. Instead of trying to guess and overthink all the potential dangers, we just dove in and dealt with reality. If your school is moving in the BYOD direction, I highly recommend doing it this way.

I particularly love what they have to say about letting the students have their own iTunes accounts and letting them load their music and apps on the devices and the learning opportunities those decisions have created in regards to responsibility and balancing appropriate use of the devices. Another interesting point - technology integration has increased because teachers can no longer say that there is an issue with student access to technology.
