Writing for a purpose with the iPad and QR Codes- March 2014 Blog Post

Writing for a purpose with the iPad and QR Codes- March 2014 Blog Post | new approaches to teaching | Scoop.it
Last week during World Book Day, my school had a Dr Seuss themed week. As I teach each class ICT during the one day, I decided to develop pupils awareness of their audience during a short book review activity. I told the pupils that not only would their class teacher be reading their book reviews but the rest of the school and parents would be listening to them. After a few blank faces glared back at me, I explained that their reviews had to be recorded into their iPads and could not be longer than 30 seconds. We used Croak It app to record the reviews (it limits the recordings to 30 seconds) and then shares that recording as a web-link. These links were then put into the QR code creator app, printed and put with the front covers of the books. If you want to record longer than 30 seconds and have images displayed while you listen to them then you could use Shadow Puppets which also creates a web-link or AudioBoo which makes a QR code for you. If you want pupils to attach a GarageBand song to a QR code then you can save the song into something like box.com app using the open in tool and create a web link from there. We then displayed the finished front covers around the school, in the weekly newsletter and library.

iPads in Teaching - What Are They For? - Ideas Out There | new approaches to teaching | Scoop.it
"This picture was drawn in response to a post called 'Drawing On A Napkin: Is This How iPads Function In A Traditional Classroom?' by the esteemed Terry Heick. Mine was not drawn on a napkin, but on Notability. And, to answer that snarky Johannesburg based iPad trainer who cannot believe I can do what I do using the iPad, yes I did create it myself! This is what I think iPads are 'for' in education. Let me know what you think."

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | new approaches to teaching | Scoop.it
"The interest in inquiry-based learning seems to ebb and flow based on–well, it’s not clear why it ever ebbs. In short, it is a student-centered, Constructivist approach to learning that requires critical thinking, and benefits from technology, collaboration, resourcefulness, and other modern learning skills that never seem to fall out of favor themselves. Regardless, St Oliver Plunkett Primary School has put together two very useful images that can help you populate your iPad–or classroom of iPads–with apps that support both inquiry-based learning (the second image below), and a more general approach to pedagogy based on Apple’s uber-popular tablet (the top image)."

Why MOOCs Aren't So Cheap ... for Colleges

Why MOOCs Aren't So Cheap ... for Colleges | new approaches to teaching | Scoop.it

"The 'Massive' in MOOC refers to class size, but one might think it stands for cost savings as well. MOOCs are free for students who register and cheap for those who seek credit. Few colleges and universities plan to grant credit for MOOCs, but of those who do, the cost to the student is typically a few hundred dollars per course; sometimes, it's only the price of paying for a proctored exam."

Creating An iPad Workflow For Teachers, Students, And Parents - TeachThought

Creating An iPad Workflow For Teachers, Students, And Parents - TeachThought | new approaches to teaching | Scoop.it
"Using tablets in the classroom–whether iPads, Androids, or surging Windows devices–is largely a matter of workflow. If you can forgive a mixed metaphor, the traditional classroom sees the teacher as the both the director and the bottleneck of all productivity. They create assignments, assess proficiency, respond to assessment data, and refine planned instruction in light of constantly changing circumstances. This is challenging in any context, but in 1:1 and mobile learning environments, it’s even more complex. With tablets, every student has both an information portal and a digital printing press. This means they can reach both communities and potential collaborators. The above graphic from @ipadwells addresses this issue with a helpful graphic that visualizes a workflow, while offering up representative apps for each step of the process."
