Allan's Blog - The Pedagogy Wheel | teaching and learning with ICT | Scoop.it

I have added 62 iPad apps to the wheel and put them where they could serve the pedagogy. These are not necessarily the best app for the job and many of the apps can be used in different realms but it is a good start. I hope it helps you rethink the iPad’s use in Learning and Teaching… it is not about the tool nor the app … it’s all about the students.

Thanks Jeff. BTW you might also be interested in the podcast episode I did with Prof Geoff Scott of the Uni of Western Sydney. He has done years of research into graduate capabilities (aka values or attributes) It is fascinating stuff in the context of Technology Enhanced Learning and Teaching. This is what the respective industries in the market place want in graduates. Duh! Look at the list and ask yourself are they being developed instudents from HE or in education in general ... this is why mapping is so important. Are we equipping graduates to excel and make a difference .... hmmm! Have a look and listen to http://tinyurl.com/alsltblog. "If you exercise these capabilities ... you will be employed!" This sort of stuff makes the CAMERA method worth developing don't you think? regards Allan

From smart safety settings to clever tools for displaying student work via social media, they won’t cost your school a penny (beyond your initial investment in the iPads, of course). How many have you heard of?

Figuring out which tool is right for the job is something we all struggle with every day. Whether you’re a contractor, plumber, or teacher, there’s a lot of options to choose from. Teachers managing connected classrooms have it quite rough, though. There’s an embarassment of riches when it comes to apps, web tools, and digital services that want to make your life easier. So how do you easily figure out which are the best education apps for connected classrooms, you ask? Great rhetorical question, Jeff!

Using iMovie App in Physical Education Lessons - November 2014

Using iMovie App in Physical Education Lessons - November 2014 | teaching and learning with ICT | Scoop.it

This month I have been supporting the PE department with using the iPads to enhance their lessons and pupils to analyse skills. Last year Apple updated iMovie app to include features such as Split Screen, Freeze Frame, Video Speed etc. This year the update has made some of these features a little easier to find.

 

Split Screen: We have used this to compare videos of the same skill taken from two different angles. For example, a cricket bowling action.

 

Video Speed: We have used this by splitting part of a clip where the skill is most demonstrated and slowing it down.

 

Freeze Frame: We can stop a clip at any point and create a freeze frame. This freeze frame can be split at either end to create a separate clip and textual analysis added.

 

I would also like to say a big thank you for all the great feedback to the iPad Teachers App. We are only at the start of the content we can add to this so look out for the first update in mid December with even more ideas. Details of the app can be found at www.ipadteachers.co.uk

tom cockburn's curator insight, December 24, 6:17 AM

Motivation and cooperative learning are good uses problems arise for people in the evaluation and assessment and that compromises the acceptance of such by potential employers etc. The difficulty is in discerning the difference between collaborative or shared learning as opposed to simple collusion in getting answers which may not entail much,if any learning,other than how to cheat and thus disadvantage genuine learners who have made an effort.Thus making use of others' research to inform your own projects is not the same as claiming others' work as your own...and that is a big selling point for systems like Turnitin and others.

Tablet computers in '70% of schools' - BBC News | teaching and learning with ICT | Scoop.it
Almost 70% of primary and secondary schools in the UK now use tablet computers, according to research.

But the study says there is no clear evidence of academic improvement for pupils using tablet devices.

The study, commissioned by education technology charity Tablets for Schools, looked at a representative sample of 671 state and independent schools.

Many pupils reported that they took an internet-connected device to bed to continue social media conversations.

The rapid growth of tablet computers in the classroom was one of the ways in which the study found that young people are immersed in technology at school and home.

Getting students attention when they have an iPad - Lewis Hall

Getting students attention when they have an iPad - Lewis Hall | teaching and learning with ICT | Scoop.it
I’m not a fan of locking iPads down so they nearly become unusable, not least because we should be teaching our students how to survive in the big world. When they do get employed they won’t be locked down, they will able able to get onto Facebook, but the consequence of this will be they will loose their job.

However, I do know from experience that when using iPad that students become so engaged in their learning it can be difficult pulling their attention back in when you need to talk to them.

One method of doing this is using this chart (right),  I’ve used this in classrooms, print it out and use BlueTack to stick an arrow on.

Red for put your iPads down, amber – its your choice, Green – Its an iPad activity, basic but ensures everyone knows when / when not to use the iPad.  You use the usual classroom management techniques to get their attention just as you would if they were doodling with a pen.

raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively; comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; andcommunicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems.

You can, for instance, use it to create quizzes, polls, questionnaires, and surveys. You can also use it to design permission forms, absence slips, classroom events forms…you name it. The great thing about Google Forms, besides being free and easy to use, is the fact that it is integrated with Google Drive which means that any form you create is automatically saved in your Drive and you can access it anywhere you go with Internet connection.
