From the always innovative Apple Distinguished Educator Gordon Shupe: "Things being what they are… just isn’t always enough money to do things the “Professional, High Quality” way we would like.

 

Our district is in the throws of “Racing to the Top” and at the same time we are still under severe budget constrictions. Every technology dollar budgeted is directed towards ‘Testing Computers’. Meanwhile, my dream and educational vision is to increase student use of the technology for problem solving, creativity, communication, collaboration, and amplifying their understanding. The challenge is doing more with less."

The Best iPad Note Apps [Best Of] | Cult of Mac | Tablet Research Articles featuring the iPad | Scoop.it

"One of the first things about the iPad that caught people’s attention was the touch screen, and it goes without saying that some of the first apps to start taking advantage of that touch screen were handwriting/note taking apps. Apps that let you write, draw, sketch—-and sometimes type–notes on your iPad. Something that combined technology with the age-old practice of scribbling notes on paper."

THE iPad is a great device, but its dominance of the worldwide tablet market is not only because its latest version, the ''new iPad'', has a needle-sharp and brilliant Retina Display screen, nice camera and other hardware attributes.

 

Its real power lies in the environment that Apple and thousands of developers, designers and inventors have built around it.

Want Increased Student Achievement Using iPads? | District Administration Magazine

Want Increased Student Achievement Using iPads? | District Administration Magazine | Tablet Research Articles featuring the iPad | Scoop.it

Apple reports that 1.5 million iPads are used in K12. Given that there are approximately 55 million students in K12, the iPad has penetrated K12 faster than any other computing technology. And the tech tsunami doesn’t seem to be slowing down. We have seen this type of excitement before with desktops and then again with laptops, although their rates of growth in K12 were slower. Each time the expectations for what the computing device would do for education were sky high, and each time there was disappointment. Who can forget Winnie Hu’s May 2007 New York Times article, “Seeing No Progress, Some Schools Drop Laptops”? While the title was relatively low-key, the news was devastating to the educational technology community.

Learning and Teaching with iPads: Students construct knowledge with their own iBooks

Learning and Teaching with iPads: Students construct knowledge with their own iBooks | Tablet Research Articles featuring the iPad | Scoop.it

"I was recently at Our Lady of the Angels Rouse Hill doing a workshop with them in creating iBooks using iBooks Author. The Principal Eva La Rocco and the teachers saw the main benefit for the software as a way of students demonstrating their own understanding and knowledge by creating an iBook that incorporated all their work. The focus being for the students to create content rather than it being pushed to them via a teacher created iBook textbook."

John Seely Brown on Technological Evolution: Your iPad is Like an Arthropod | Big Think

John Seely Brown on Technological Evolution: Your iPad is Like an Arthropod  | Big Think | Tablet Research Articles featuring the iPad | Scoop.it

by Daniel Honan

 

"Learning guru John Seely Brown finds an intriguing analogy between the disruptive technology of today and what evolutionary biologists have observed in the fossil record during a period over 500 million years ago. The Cambrian period was like evolution on steroids. After a period of long evolutionary stasis, a warming climate created marine habitats that gave birth to new complex life forms. Among the great evolutionary innovations of this period were animals with external skeletons, or arthropods.

 

"To follow Brown's analogy, if anthropologists many years from now are to look at our current "Cambrian explosion" they will see that in the early 21st century human biology did not change so much. Instead, humans have co-evolved with technology, acquiring increasingly sophisticated tools in a short period of time. So how are we to master these tools? According to Brown, as human beings functioning in the 21st century knowledge economy today, we develop mastery through imagination and play."

iPads for Literacy & Learning resource for teachers

iPads for Literacy & Learning resource for teachers | Tablet Research Articles featuring the iPad | 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.

The first large-scale use of iPads for learning in UK schools a already a success, says report. The adoption of iPads in UK schools gets a further boost with the publication of the new Naace report, “The iPad as a Tool for Education: A study of the introduction of iPads at Longfield Academy, Kent”by Paul Heinrich.

 

Its conclusion is direct and positive: "There has been a significant and very positive impact on learning and teaching which, in time, should be reflected in achievement and attainment, thanks to both pedagogical changes and new ways of learning engendered by ‘anytime anywhere’ access to information and learning tools.
