Apple TV Settings for the Classroom

You don’t have to live with Apple TV’s default settings! I’d like to
recommend some tweaks to make Apple TV more classroom friendly. These
adjustments include hiding previews and icons on the Home screen,
preventing screen hijacking, using the screen saver as a digital bulletin
board, and other handy tips.

The State of the iPad in Education in 2015 — Emerging Education Technologies

The State of the iPad in Education in 2015 — Emerging Education Technologies | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
So, here we are 5 years down the road. How is the iPad faring in the world of education?

We’ve already seen that the iPad is still the dominant tablet in education … the undeniable king of the ivory-tower topped hill. While the Google Chromebook appears to be on its way to offering some real competition, only time will tell how that plays out. In any case, change is inevitable and healthy, and things are sure to keep evolving.

Moreover, anyone with a decent understanding of tech realizes that it’s not really about the device, it’s about what you do with it, and how well you do it. That being said, things are still looking pretty rosy for the first successful entry into the tablet computer market.

Are Digital Natives Digitally Literate?

Are Digital Natives Digitally Literate? | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
It’s been almost a decade since I first heard of Prensky’s definitions of digital natives and digital immigrants, and the idea fascinated me then. I still find it interesting; yet, the more I observe my digitally native students, the more I believe it’s not about being “native” at all. It’s about being “literate”, and both natives and immigrants have equal chances for digital literacy.


I’m sure I am not the first person to ponder over this; someone, somewhere must have thought of or even written about it. Still, in this post, I want to process these definitions, once again, for myself: Are all my students competent and proficient when it comes to technology? What can I learn from them? How can I help them become digitally literate?

Should My Kid Learn to Code?

Should My Kid Learn to Code? | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Most educators agree that basic application and internet skills (typing, word processing, spreadsheets, web literacy and safety, etc.) are fundamental, and thus, “digital literacy” is a part of K12 curriculum. But is coding now a fundamental literacy, like reading or writing, that all K12 students need to learn as well? In order to gain a deeper understanding of the devices and applications they use everyday, it’s important for all students to try coding. In doing so, this also has the positive effect of inspiring more potential future programmers. Furthermore, there are a set of relevant skills, often consolidated as “computational thinking”, that are becoming more important for all students, given the growth in the use of computers, algorithms and data in many fields.
