Is iPad Teacher Training a Necessity? - teachingwithipad.org

Is iPad Teacher Training a Necessity? - teachingwithipad.org | Professional Learning Scoops for Educators | Scoop.it

"The following excerpt was taken from a recent article on Edudemic, by Adam Webster (@cagelessthink).

 

"If you give a child a device they will sit and play with it until you ask them to stop and perhaps even after that they’ll still keep playing. If you give one to a teacher, they’ll do what they can when they can, but it might well sit in a drawer for a long while before they get the opportunity to really test drive it. Beyond the constraints of time, it is also worth remembering that there are plenty of teachers who learnt their trade in schools where technology simply didn’t exist and many who don’t see it’s value."

 

I completely agree with this. Kids will learn by themselves if you give them the time. Teachers are so busy with prep work that they don't have time to play and discover the same amount that a child would. Even for myself, this summer, I haven't put too much thought into learning new developments for education in the iPad realm. When school comes again in about a month, this will undoubtedly change."

When the fiber optic connection gives everyone at the school the equivalent of an ADSL connection each, Skype becomes a real possibility in our classes. Help will be needed with this, but we have the tools in the school to make it work.
