iPad Bingo Card with Great iPad Apps and Activities to Use in Class ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

iPad Bingo Card with Great iPad Apps and Activities to Use in Class ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Teaching and Learning software and topics | Scoop.it

"Today I am sharing with you an iPad Bingo card created by iPad Bingo. This card is available for free download from this page. iPad Bingo card is a chart that features 6 iPad apps and with each of these apps is attached a set of activities to be achieved through the use of that app. These activities are divided into three levels with different layers of difficulty."


Via John Evans
A/Prof Jon Willis's insight:

Although this is a relatively trivial example, the idea of a Bingo approach to skills building is an interesting one - at UQ we're using a passport as part of engagement processes with Aboriginal school students visiting the university. For every activity they participate in, there is a unique stamp for their passport. The bingo card idea is similar so that across a semester, students fill up their bingo card with activities that build their skills in a range of domains, or across a range of technologies or tools.

Charting culture

"This animation distils hundreds of years of culture into just five minutes. A team of historians and scientists wanted to map cultural mobility, so they tracked the births and deaths of notable individuals like David, King of Israel, and Leonardo da Vinci, from 600 BC to the present day. Using them as a proxy for skills and ideas, their map reveals intellectual hotspots and tracks how empires rise and crumble. The information comes from Freebase, a Google-owned database of well-known people and places, and other catalogues of notable individuals. The team is based at the University of Texas at Dallas."

A Must See Chart on SAMR Model and iPad Teaching ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Must See Chart on SAMR Model and iPad Teaching ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Teaching and Learning software and topics | Scoop.it

"Technology integration in instruction is a process that starts with setting out clearly defined objectives and ends with assessing learning outcomes against these objectives, and all along the way several tools and strategies are employed to attend to the overall performance of this process. Hence, the first question teachers need to ponder when thinking about using technology in class is not what kind of technology to use but what do they want to achieve behind using this technology? On a deeper level, they need to find answers to questions such as: Does this technology constitute a a good addition to the learning task ?  Can the same learning task be performed without using technology? These and several other questions  should come to the forefront when you start planning a technology-based learning activity.

Clearly, if there was still any doubt, technology-assisted learning expects a great deal more from the teacher. It does NOT make your life easier. The processes advocated in this article demands a teachers who is unafraid and willing to engage in hard mental spadework.
