Handy iPad Posters to Use in The First Week of School ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Handy iPad Posters to Use in The First Week of School ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | School Leaders on iPads & Tablets | Scoop.it

"If you are planning to incorporate iPad in your classroom teaching then you definitely need to work on some preliminary stuff before anything else. These are basically formalities and conventions students need to abide by when using iPad in class. Making students explicitly aware of their responsibilities behind using iPad in class will certainly help you tap into the full educational potential of this versatile gadget. I have gone through my archive and picked out these handy visuals for you to use with your students."

Gebruik je iPads in jouw klas? Dan zijn deze posters wellicht handig om te gebruiken. Je moet ze natuurlijk wel eerst even vertalen in het Nederlands.

Are Tablets Are a Fad That Will Largely Disappear in 2–3 Years?

Are Tablets Are a Fad That Will Largely Disappear in 2–3 Years? | School Leaders on iPads & Tablets | Scoop.it
The iPad came out of the Apple chute in 2010 like gangbusters, setting all kinds of sales records. Schools picked up on the iPad too. But the tablet is a fad, we argue; it will pass away in short order (two to three years) because it is neither a mobile device nor a work device – and folks (and schools, we should hope) want those two types of devices!
Mel Riddile's insight:

"But, Ultrabooks — the slim laptops have not done as well asdesired/predicted. The irony of course is that Apple has the best Ultrabooks — their 11 & 13 inch screened MacBook Air laptops are the cat’s meow when it comes to featherweight laptops but they can’t seem to make a big-screened phone. Go figure."

When I first started teaching English with 1:1 iPads, I was really jealous of the science and fine arts teachers. They had all of the most engaging apps, and I was left with a lowly word processor and an instant thesaurus. Fortunately, so much has changed. I now have the flexibility to duck in and …

Under new standards, students are struggling "productively!"

Under new standards, students are struggling "productively!" | School Leaders on iPads & Tablets | Scoop.it

I can remember spending almost a full period on one short paragraph while reading about endothermic and exothermic reactions in science class. We spent time highlighting, underlining, making connections to things we already knew, asking questions in the margins, defining words and more. The room might as well have smelled of smoke— these kids were thinking, brains-on-fire style! They were struggling…PRODUCTIVELY! I was hooked, and unbelievably, so were they. I heard several kids exclaim, “Ohhhhhhh, I get it.”
