Myths and Misinformation about iPads

Myths and Misinformation about iPads | Muskegon Public Schools Tech News | Scoop.it

From Tony Vincent's Learning in Hand Blog: 

I have the pleasure of working with educators who get to use iPads and iPod touches with students. Wherever I facilitate workshops, I find there are some myths floating around about Apple's iOS devices, and I'd like to clear up some of the misinformation.

TED-Ed | Lessons Worth Sharing

TED-Ed | Lessons Worth Sharing | Muskegon Public Schools Tech News | Scoop.it

Talks-Conferences-Conversations-Community-Blog...

 

Big day. After more than a year of planning and dreaming, we're finally launching our new TED-Ed website, whose goal is to offer teachers a thrilling new way to use video.

What Happens on iPads Stays on iPads

What Happens on iPads Stays on iPads | Muskegon Public Schools Tech News | Scoop.it

A big issue with school mobile devices is that they are often shared, and don’t have full profile accounts like a computer does. This means that any user has access to any app or information from any other user. Here's a great little poster that talks about some of the basic things students should consider when using shared mobile devices to keep themselves safe and to respect others they are working with.
