Edutopia - Redefining the Writing Process with iPads

Edutopia - Redefining the Writing Process with iPads | Mobile learning for students and teachers | 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, turn in. Our teachers then marked up what we had handwritten or typed, and returned our writing. From there, maybe it ended up tacked to a bulletin board, stuck on the refrigerator door, stuffed into a notebook, or tossed in the nearest trash can. Let's call this Writing 1.0."

Touch technologies can bring haptics back to the process of writing - thus still beeing digital. We have seen great advances in how we consume content, but less in how we create it.

VISUAL LITERACY

Demonstrate the ability to interpret, recognize, appreciate, and understand information presented through visible actions, objects and symbols, natural or man-made

 

Peter Evans's curator insight, November 26, 2013 8:47 AM

I'd suggest a lot of the more innovative university programmes are already doing much of what is suggested here. One thing to emphasise is supporting students to use digital tools specifically for learning as they generally already know how to use these tools. In otherwords, while students may often be digitally competent, they are often less digitally literate in terms of learning processes. Also, what refer to PDAs - surely old tech?

Miep Carstensen's curator insight, December 1, 2013 11:14 PM

Sound advice for teachers to incorprate these core competencies in their teaching programmes.

Easy iPad Management for Education- At Scale! | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it

iPad deployment includes all of the steps between buying an iPad and beginning to use the device. For an individual’s personal iPad, this is often a very fast and easy process lasting no longer than five minutes: You just open the box, turn it on, download the apps you want on your device, and go. But for a school, or district, with potentially hundreds of iPads–each one requiring a specialized list of apps that need to be purchased before protecting the devices with a case and sending them out to classrooms. As an administrator or teacher, there are a few things you will need to know before you deploy your iPads

The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens: Scientific American | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it

Why not keep paper and evolve screen-based reading into something else entirely? Screens obviously offer readers experiences that paper cannot. Scrolling may not be the ideal way to navigate a text as long and dense as Moby Dick, but the New York Times, Washington Post, ESPN and other media outlets have created beautiful, highly visual articles that depend entirely on scrolling and could not appear in print in the same way.

A detailed paper discussing screens vs paper. Lots of other links included. There is no research paper connected with article. I did a paper on practice modalites that involved print text vs media for learning and engagement. More papers are needed out there on such topics, as technology research studies can quickly become outdated.

iPad Apps for Dyslexia

iPad Apps for Dyslexia | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it

We have produced a 'Wheel' of iPad Apps for Dyslexia / Reading and Writing Difficultiesas a visual aid and reminder for some of the many apps that are available to support learners with dyslexia. It is designed to be used as an A3 poster, but the electronic PDF version is also useful as it links directly to the various apps that we have included.

It is impossible to include every app that can be useful for learners with dyslexia so we have only included a small representative group for each category. We are happy to take suggestions for other apps that could be included in later versions of the Wheel and will give them our consideration. Many apps can be useful in more than one category, but we have chosen to use just one particularly representative category for these apps, in order to make space available to include other apps.

 

Ruby Rennie Panter's insight:

This is an excellent way to think about different learning tasks and how you can get the most out of them by support from apps
