5 Critical Mistakes Schools Make With iPads (And How To Correct Them) | Reality

5 Critical Mistakes Schools Make With iPads (And How To Correct Them) | Reality | Personal and Professional Development | Scoop.it

Focusing on iPad-versus.-laptop comparisons stifles the ability to see how the iPad facilitates student-centered learning. iPads are devices meant to compliment computers, not replace them.

So, people who seek equivalent functionality become frustrated, and fail to realize the intrinsic benefits and features of the iPad’s native design.

 

Instead, schools should focus their energies on what iPads do best to engender active learning. iPads enable students to kinesthetically connect with their work (especially important for young learners). These tactile elements – using fingers to zoom, rotate in, pinch close, or swipe across – as well as increasingly interactive and immersive apps, facilitate hands-on learning.

 

Gust MEES: DON'T forget ALSO about that the working force needs people who are FIT in Windows Computers as THE main OS is STILL WINDOWS!!!

Madeline Case's curator insight, December 27, 2014 8:36 PM

Just think, these students don't realize that iPads are not something to be used alone. I've seen many people with their tablets/pads and a laptop complimenting/corroborating with each other.

Alex Enkerli's curator insight, January 5, 2015 9:19 AM

Educational appropriation of tablets is getting past the hype.

Digital Citizenship Is As Important As Potty Training: Let's Start Cyber Civics Classes In All Schools

Digital Citizenship Is As Important As Potty Training: Let's Start Cyber Civics Classes In All Schools | Personal and Professional Development | Scoop.it

As part of our holiday series “One Change I’d Like to See in 2015″ Sue Scheff challenges us to make Cyber Citizenship a priority in schools. 

 

We live in a digital age where this is a fact: Your virtual resume determines your future. Studies indicate that a student’s GPA may not be good enough for college recruiters if their social media behavior is out of line. A Career Builders survey shows that 51% of employers did not hire an applicant due to negative social media behavior and online content.

 

Since cyber-life is imperative to a child’s future, isn’t it about time to demand that schools implement Cyber Civics classes?

Researchers Say They Can Use Stem Cells in 3D Printed Scaffolds to Repair Your Joints

Researchers Say They Can Use Stem Cells in 3D Printed Scaffolds to Repair Your Joints | Personal and Professional Development | Scoop.it

What researchers call infrapatellar fat pad adipose stem cells, used in conjunction with 3D printing technology, are being employed to encourage the formation of cartilage in human tissues.

The technique uses 3D scaffold-like polymeric structures to provide an engineering framework which results in the formation of 3D tissue blocks they say can be used to repair cartilage.
