Lindsay Sprague's curator insight, January 29, 2015 4:22 PM

This looks like a powerful tool for organizing and planning writing assignments.  It could also be useful for planning units, events, or helping students get more organized.  It's simple, so there are no fancy bells and whistles to confuse my students.  I might consider using this!

11 Tips for Managing iPads in the Classroom - TECHCHEF

11 Tips for Managing iPads in the Classroom - TECHCHEF | Great Tech for Teachers! | Scoop.it

"I am starting to see the light… and somewhat emerging from the fog of iPad enrollment and technical logistics. After a full weekend of ACL (yes, the TechChef does find time to enjoy in the Austin music scene), I spent half a day with Randolph ISD sharing some timely tips for managing iPads in the classroom. As I am never one to hoard resources and I imagine that there our other teachers and districts that might benefit from some tried and true management techniques, I thought I would crank out a blog to share these with the greater edusphere."

iPads + project based learning = limitless possibilities - Daily Genius

iPads + project based learning = limitless possibilities - Daily Genius | Great Tech for Teachers! | Scoop.it
Though more than two years into my school’s implementation of project based learning, yesterday, I found myself excited all over again. I was helping a second grade teacher enhance her landforms PBL by using Padlet as part of the KWL process and suddenly realized that this approach to student-centered learning has truly become a part of who we are as a school.

My adventures in combining PBLs and iPads began with a gift of two carts. I had just started taking the PBLU online courses when the head of our independent pre-k through eighth grade school challenged each grade-level team to teach one unit using the PBL approach while finding authentic ways to draw in iPads. As the lower school technology integration person, I immediately went on a quest to find a guinea pig willing to plan and co-teach a PBL unit incorporating iPads. This is the story of that first experience. . .

Retiring an old iPad? Back it up first - USA TODAY | Great Tech for Teachers! | Scoop.it
“ Q: If I retire my old iPad for one of the new models, how do I make sure all of my data is off the tablet and none of it is left behind before donating or selling it? A: Apple's instructions and interface to reset an iOS device have a refreshing simplicity — the process itself is identical in iOS 7 and iOS 8. But the documentation and the user experience leave out steps you shouldn't neglect before getting your data off an iPad or other iOS device and restoring it to factory condition for resale or donation.”

9 Great iPad Apps to Grow and Manage Your Personal Learning Network ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Great Tech for Teachers! | Scoop.it
One of the great things I love about iPad is that it allows me to keep track of my personal learning network wherever I am with Internet connection. I always have instant access to resources, discussions, and materials shared on my PLN. This ubiquitous kind of connectivity is important to my personal as well as professional growth. To this end, I am drawing on a bunch of powerful iPad apps that, in my eyes, are indispensable to any individual keen on joining  0n-the-go learning trend. Below are some of the apps I am personally using. These apps span different areas from social bookmarking to note taking. Enjoy

Basic Tip: Upload Multiple Files to the Cloud from your iPhone/iPad

Basic Tip: Upload Multiple Files to the Cloud from your iPhone/iPad | Great Tech for Teachers! | Scoop.it

"Here is another basic tip for collecting assignments over email and uploading them to your cloud service provider.

 

My 75 fifth grade students were given an assignment to create projects using either PowerPoint or Keynote. It was a home assignment, and not one that we did in the computer lab.

 

To collect the presentations, I told them I did not want everyone giving me a USB, as handling that many different USB keys would be a logistical mess. Email was the best option. Most of them were able to email me without any problems. Handing in a USB would be an available option if they didn't have an email account."
