Tablets in Dutch Schools Usher in a New Era

Tablets in Dutch Schools Usher in a New Era | Must Read articles: Apps and eBooks for kids | Scoop.it

In August, at least 1,000 students in 10 other primary schools in the Netherlands will get iPads, in a teaching model developed by a foundation called O4NT, which is a Dutch acronym for “Education for a New Era.” (While De Windhoek uses iPads, it is not part of O4NT.)

 

(...) O4NT wants to change the way schools work, not only through technology, but also by rethinking the very basics of how brick and mortar buildings are used, and how class hours and academic years are scheduled and structured. The model’s creators believe that a more flexible system is needed, particularly to alleviate pressure on working parents.

The surprising iPad rival in education that isn't a tablet, laptop or desktop - Tabtimes via Teachers with Apps

The surprising iPad rival in education that isn't a tablet, laptop or desktop - Tabtimes via Teachers with Apps | Must Read articles: Apps and eBooks for kids | Scoop.it
Education has been quick to jump on the tablet bandwagon by deploying iPads and a handful of Windows 8 and Android tablets. But in one surprising new twist the iPad finds itself under threat in the classroom from a different form factor altogether.

 

(...) 

Running Google’s Chrome OS, the Chromebook allows users access to web applications only and has been generally well-received, even if some reviewers have been quick to note its limitations.

“A Chromebook cannot do everything that a Windows PC or a Mac (of even a Linux PC) can do. It can’t even do everything that a tablet can do. For one thing, the selection of games is very limited though there is, of course, Angry Birds,” wrote seasoned tech journalist Steve Wildstrom recently for Tech-pinions.

“But it is very good at what it does well, and for a large number of people, it would be a more than adequate replacement for a conventional PC”.
