Top 3 problems with tablets in the classroom | Digital Book World

Top 3 problems with tablets in the classroom | Digital Book World | Must Read articles: Apps and eBooks for kids | Scoop.it
With more than a million iPads in schools, teachers and students are enthusiastic about the technology, but tablet use in classroom brings about new problems.

 

Problem #1 Not enough dollars to purchase content

Problem #2 Input ( entering responses in to a tablet can be awkward.)

Problem #3 Monitoring use (some educators are worried about how to handle a classroom full of independent learners.)


Other problems expressed buy educators

With more than half of those surveyed selecting “no budget” as their biggest complaint about using tablets in the classroom, educators noted other issues as well, though in much smaller percentages:

17% of respondents answered: Don’t know how to evaluate or guide kids in their tablet use16% answered: Don’t understand how applications integrate into my lesson plans8% answered: Don’t know how to get applications/e-books7% answered: Applications/e-books aren’t educational enough7%: The technology is confusing22% filled in the “other” form with comments, mostly about monitoring tablet use.


@CotCotCotApps's insight:

A smart list with problem #1 being a recurring problem in many countries (e.g. France)... schools often get a budget to buy the hardware but don't get any money left for content!!

“Don’t do this, don’t do that”, “careful, “no”, “that’s enough”…it’s not always easy setting down the rules with one’s children, especially when it comes to moderating the use of a tool as fun and interactive as the tablet! That’s why we’ve decided to help parents like us, faced with this new gadget, to put into place a few basic rules concerning the family tablet or smartphone borrowed from mum or dad.

@CotCotCotApps's insight:

Une petite appli-jeux soumise à Apple la nuit dernière dont l'objectif est d'aider les parents à modérer l'utilisation de la tablette... mais de manière ludique et sans dire de "gros mot" comme "règle"... # avoir les mains propres # être assis confortablement # ne pas regarder trop longtemps l'écran...
