iPads for Literacy & Learning resource for teachers

iPads for Literacy & Learning resource for teachers | School Administration | Scoop.it

Nicole Sprainger has created an iBook "iPads for Literacy & Learning" which has been developed to assist K-10 teachers in utilising the iPad in their classroom literacy learning programs. It recognises that our students live in an increasingly sophisticated and media-rich society, in which digital texts are ubiquitous. Our students need therefore to become multiliterate - to be critical consumers of digital media texts. They also need to develop the ability to construct new knowledge, communicating their own ideas and information by composing using digital tools and processes.

 

Nicole says the iBook itself is intended simply to be a stimulus - a spark to encourage teachers to consider some ways to provide explicit learning opportunities for their students to access, use, understand and create multimodal texts while utilising the iPad.

Report Recommends Shift to Digital Educational Resources Within 5 Years -- THE Journal

Report Recommends Shift to Digital Educational Resources Within 5 Years -- THE Journal | School Administration | Scoop.it
"If the shift to digital instructional materials is not made immediately, major funding will continue to be directed to traditional materials that will tie the hands of students and educators to static, inflexible content for years to come,"...

 

A new report from the State Education Technology Directors Association (SETDA) points to the importance of shifting K-12 schools in the United States from printed textbooks to digital educational resources. The report released today, Out of Print: Reimagining the K-12 Textbook in a Digital Age, delves into the benefits of digital and open educational resources, profiles several states that have already started making the shift, outlines the factors required for successful deployment of digital resources, and provides recommendations for meeting students' needs.

 

According to the report, digital content is more flexible and cost-effective than print materials such as textbooks. Digital resources can be updated easily without the cost of reprinting. They are available anytime, anywhere for students and teachers to access in the classroom or at home. They can be personalized to meet the individual needs of students. And they allow for richer content, including high-definition graphics, videos, simulations, interactive lessons, virtual labs, and online assessments.
