Tablets have a place in the classroom, but are far from a panacea.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 9, 2013 10:22 PM

This post looks at pros and cons of tablet in general, and introduces a tablet from the News Corporation called Amplify. This tablet is designed for K-12 education and comes pre-loaded. It is considered the first tablet designed for specifically for education.

Along with two videos (both from Amplify) that discuss the tablet the post also brings up some of the issues associated with tablets. For example they mention a recent Pew Research Center Poll that notes (quoted from the post):

"in poorer districts, there is often a serious lack of access to technology. “Teachers whose students are from the lowest income households feel they are at a disadvantage when it comes to using the internet and other digital tools such as cell phones, tablet computers and e-readers to enhance the learning process,”

To learn more about some of the issues associated with using tablets click through to this post. To go directly to the Amplify website for more information on their tablet - http://amplify.com/tablet.

Mary Kate Lavin's curator insight, December 19, 2013 1:01 PM

This article understands the positive effect that Ipads have in the classroom however the author explains two negative effects of using Ipads in the classroom.  Students who come from low income areas and schools may not have the technology and students use the Ipads to play games when they are not in school.

When curriculum resources are limitless due to the access we have to on-line materials, then the question we ask about those materials become more important. Values Education helps us all to ask the right questions! See some innovative whole school projects at:

I like Teacher Mentor Texts for the quick descriptions about the books and suggested uses in the class. While 'not news', this review has the idea of using a single book for multiple teachings/learnings across various grades.

6 reasons to get on board with gamification - Ragan

6 reasons to get on board with gamification - Ragan | Nate's Place | Scoop.it
Gabe Zichermann, chair of the Gamification Summit, tells why games will remake employee learning and boost performance.

 

Gamification is transforming business strategies across organizations large and small. It sounds like child's play, but getting it right takes work.  Here's why gaming is worth the time and expense:

1. Games boost intelligence.

2. Games make annual evaluations better for both bosses and employees.

3. Games engage millennials.

4. Games succeed when they give players a higher purpose.

5. You won't believe how much work they'll put into a game.

6. Games boost performance.

A good example of how you can modify a simple game (like Monopoly) and use it for a very serious purpose.
