iPads In The Classroom: The Right Questions You Should Ask - Edudemic

iPads In The Classroom: The Right Questions You Should Ask - Edudemic | Mobile Apps For Education | Scoop.it

"

Arguably, the iPad can be a great classroom tool. However, lately there have been concerns about Apple’s tablet and its current role in the classroom. For instance, many have suggested that some of our schools are making the iPad the center of classrooms instead of remembering that students must be at the center of the classroom. Inevitably, this raises questions about the future of the iPad in the classroom.

 

Does the iPad foster or hinder creativity? Is it a comprehensive tool or just a mere distraction? Do we use the iPad just because it makes our classroom look cool? Are we missing the forest for the trees here?"

Dico Krommenhoek's curator insight, June 20, 2013 3:19 AM

Goede tips van Mike.

- Ga uit van wat je leerlingen wilt leren en kijk dan of technologie iets toevoegt. Niet? dan niet inzetten. - Ga niet voor het laatste nieuwe product. Kijk of jouw "apparaat" kan wat jij met leerlingen wilt ondernemen. Misschien wel de beste tip: hou vol. Als iets niet werkt, probeer dan iets anders.

That is the only way to reach a 21st century digital child.

Technology, when used correctly, offers a lot of opportunity on a grand-scale.

"The iPad takeover of public education isn’t just confined to the mainstream classroom: Special needs educators, too, are finding that  iPads can be a vital tool to support independence. What sets the iPad apart from other devices is the simple and visually robust user interface that can be used by almost everyone. It’s also a highly customizable device that can be set up with applications and assistive features to support a variety of special needs."

I love these lists!

Marianne Gunn's curator insight, December 16, 2013 1:46 AM

While I do believe these apps could use a bit more work and cost a little less I am happy to see technology in special education classrooms. In many cases children with special needs cam work better with computers than they do with people.

"I think almost everyone enjoys a good movie.  The cost of going to the theater, however, is becoming terribly cost prohibitive.  The last movie I saw in the theater was Lincoln.  It was a great film and it renewed my interest in the history of the Lincoln era and the Civil War.  Living in Charleston where the Civil War began, I am able to walk on the very cobblestone streets that Union and Confederate soldiers trod."
