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.

Don't pay attention to the immature heading of this show.  The discussion is (as always) insightful and timely.

 

Key Takeaway:

Facebook users average 6 hours of use per month.  Also,  1 out of every 7 mnutes spent on the internet is spent on facebook.

 

Also, interesting talks on cell phone transactions, Apple's integration of Facebook on the iPhone, and corporate social media policies for employees.

Nearpod is like the Join.me for iPad presentations - but better. I haven't seen a mobile presentation tool quite like this. I've seen iPad browser sharing tools and even presentation managers, yet nothing with the suite of tools Nearpod offers.

Duncan Calls For Textbooks To Become Obsolete | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

They reference S. Korea a few times. They need to be careful in thinking that what works in one system will work in another.  With that said, I am a fan of the potential of being able to update textbooks much more quickly and customize them for your lessons.  I also like the idea of parents being able to download the same book as the students.

I really like this teacher's approach of adopting one new app every day.  That might be a bit much for me and others.   Yet choosing one every x days/weeks and giving it a good no-pressure test drive could be  a great way to get comfortable with apps in a fun way.
