Patrick Larkin Interview: Are Tablets Solutions or Problems?

Patrick Larkin Interview: Are Tablets Solutions or Problems? | One-to-one revised | Scoop.it

"Patrick Larkin, Assistant Superintendent for Learning, Burlington Public School District, Burlington, Ma, recalls a question someone posed to him: “Is the tablet an education solution, or an education problem?” His answer, and common sense approach to changing the school and learning environment is a professional development lesson for all. Enjoy my interview with Patrick Larkin, and learn why he’s become one of the most respected tablet education voices today—and for the future."

Bill Campbell's insight:

I like Patrick's statement that you can have an effective teacher with our without technology. I particularly agree that while you may get some positive changes by just dropping technology into the hands of a motivated teacher, the real gains require support for teachers that include professional development and COLLABORATIVE EXPERIENCES where teachers can share ideas and practices with peers.  Patrick is a very online-connected educator from what I've seen from him and about him in the past so I'm not surprised he advocates a culture of of professional sharing.  Of course, I suspect those experiences have assisted his professional success and helped him assist others as an administrator so they shouldn't just be discounted as coming from some guy who likes to do things online.

Bill Campbell's insight:

I haven't read through all the studies but the summaries show a couple measured perception of iPads value while others reported higher standardized test scores.  It would be intersting to tease out how much of the benfit reported is due to each student having a computing devices versus each student actually having a particluar product -- the Apple iPad.

14 Smart Tips for Using iPads in Class

14 Smart Tips for Using iPads in Class | One-to-one revised | Scoop.it

I like the idea of using a Google a Day to get students minds warmed up. It is a lot like the mind challenge that is displayed before our weekly middle-school meeting.  Having a few wireless keyboards available instead of trying to make sure everyone as one also seems like an idea with merit. The onscreen keyboard is better than I expected so I would guess most students will only want a regualr keyboard when writing a lot.

The Digital Native Myth: Why we still need to teach kids HOW to use the iPad | (innovate) educate | One-to-one revised | Scoop.it
Bill Campbell's insight:

Four things I agree teachers should do to help even a classroom full of "digital natives", which is a term I'm not fond of because some people use it as a way to excuse not teaching kids when they use technology:

give students high-quality examples, provide students with the necessary thinking tools teach them how to learn socially and share, and introduce them to new apps for learning.

Bill Campbell's insight:

This teacher's students are using iPads from a classroom set instead of any physical materials. Evernote's ability to make data accessible from multiple platforms is key here. If the students kept the iPad then maybe a different app with better markup (e.g. Notability) might work well.
