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.

10 reasons teachers do NOT use education technology - Daily Genius | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
There are plenty of reasons teachers do not use education technology. It’s expensive. It’s hard to always find a reason to implement edtech into a particular lesson. That’s all true and valid, really. But what are the other big reasons that teachers don’t use technology in the classroom? We did a little digging through surveys, …

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.
