Free Technology for Teachers: Creative Uses for iPads in the Classroom

Free Technology for Teachers: Creative Uses for iPads in the Classroom | #sschat resources | Scoop.it
"This afternoon I Stumbled Upon a good Slideshare presentation from Mike Amante who I had the pleasure of meeting during ISTE 2010. Mike's presentation Creative Uses for Ipad in the Classroom offers a nice run-down of the apps and examples of using them in the classroom. The presentation includes some QR codes that you can scan to get the lists of apps that Mike recommends. Take a look through the presentation as embedded below and you're likely to find a new app or idea that you can use in your classroom. "

Apple iPad Mini is a One-Handed Wonder [HANDS-ON]

Apple iPad Mini is a One-Handed Wonder [HANDS-ON] | #sschat resources | Scoop.it
"That’s the main reason why the iPad Mini, launched Tuesday in San Jose, is a big deal. Hold it in one hand, as I did, and your forearm relaxes. It may not simply be a large smartphone, but it certainly feels as light as one. It’s 53% lighter than its new cousin, the 4th generation iPad."

The 33 Digital Skills Every 21st Century Teacher should Have

The 33 Digital Skills Every 21st Century Teacher should Have | #sschat resources | Scoop.it

"Every single teacher is concerned about his/ her teaching practices and the skills involved in this process. How many times have you wondered about a better way to teach the same lesson you have delivered to an eariler class? How often have you used technology to engage your students and improve their learning ? These are some recurring questions we keep regurgitating each time our teaching skills are put to the test."

The Conflict in Syria

The Conflict in Syria | #sschat resources | Scoop.it

Brown University's Choices Program has many excellent resources for social studies teachers including "Teaching with the News."  Many teachers are seeing the importance of Syria, but might lack the regional expertise to put it in context or to the time to link it with the curriculum.  If that is the case (and even if it is not), this is the perfect place to find lesson plans on the ongoing Syrian conflict.

62 Ways to Use iPad with your Students | #sschat resources | Scoop.it
"Today as I was going through my feeds I stumbled upon this awesome slideshow on how teachers can use iPad in their classroom. I know we have already written a lot on this topic here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning but sometimes you find new and creative ways others include in their use of iPad and that is the case with the one below. It has some novel ideas as to how teachers can use iPad for instructional purposes."

"There have been several posts on the web discussing what makes the most sense to purchase for the classroom, an Apple TV setup or an Interactive Whiteboard. While it’s great to say one is better than the other, I would like to show you the differences between the two setups and break each setup down into categories to see which outperforms the other."

How To Integrate Education Technology With Scaffolding | Edudemic

How To Integrate Education Technology With Scaffolding | Edudemic | #sschat resources | Scoop.it

Imagine asking students to write a research paper without teaching them how to write an introduction, body and conclusion first. How about writing the equation of the quadratic formula on the board, and just giving students a set of problems to start solving with no prior instruction?

These types of tasks are nearly impossible for students if teachers do not break up the learning process into small chunks aimed at meeting the students where they are and then building on them to create new knowledge, otherwise known as scaffolding.

 

Meeting with several teachers recently calls to mind a couple of instances that serve as a useful reminder why scaffolding not only applies to teaching content, but is also imperative to employ when introducing new technology into the classroom. I want to share experiences from two teachers that I work with and demonstrate how scaffolding would apply to each situation.
