My good friend, fellow French teacher and colleague Sylvia Duckworth and I brainstormed the following. Sylvia has been a huge advocate for using technology in the classroom, and has actively used iPads in her classes for the past couple years. Check out her excellent website, which contains a multitude of teaching ideas using technology as a tool.

This looks like a useful free tool for creating short hand drawn animations on the iPad. A great way to illustrate or get students to illustrate meaning and concepts.

Apple to streamline iPad resource sharing in schools

Apple to streamline iPad resource sharing in schools | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it

"Apple is revamping its iPad deployment strategy to make it easier for schools to share tablets among students, according to an official email obtained by MacRumors.

 

Under the forthcoming system, apps can be assigned to a tablet without an Apple ID, meaning schools can distribute an app to a large number of tablets at once instead of having to input IDs one by one. "

How to choose between iPads and Chromebooks in the classroom - Daily Genius | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it
The race to be the go-to technology in your classroom is more than heating up. It’s on fire. Like, someone grab a fire extinguisher because the race is ablaze. The two biggest contestants in this race are, not surprisingly, products from Apple and Google.

Both Apple and Google are in a high-stakes race to own the education ecosystem. They’re going about it in different ways but their goals are the same: to have their products used by the next generation.

There are few staples of the classroom more recognisable than the Post-it note. Used in a plethora of ways to engage students and capture learning, I can’t think of many teachers who wouldn’t, at some point in their career, have tried out the Post-it to see what it could offer them.
The Post-it Plus app takes that most beloved of classroom accessory and gives it a digital edge.
In the video below, I explain why you should give it a try for yourself.

"Their features vary, but their common goal is to get children to look up from their screens, whether it’s taking photographs, making papercraft animals or spotting constellations in the night skies.

Here are 10 worth investigating with your children. It’s iOS-heavy, which sadly reflects the priority being given (or, rather, not given) to other platforms by developers of these kinds of apps."

50 Resources For Teaching With iPads - Te@chThought | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it
So we thought we’d start an ongoing collection–that is, one that is updated to reflect trends and changes–of the best resources for teaching with the iPad.

This will include resources from all of the best sources, from Apple’s own stuff to TeachThought to edutopia to MindShift to DMLCentral to Jackie Gerstein and more. We can update it, or make it a wiki to crowdsource the process, or you can add suggestions in the comments below. Based on the activity of the comments, and the sharing of the post, we’ll decide how to handle it moving forward.

Great resource for a 1:1 iPad classroom/school. However, this is a great model for any 1:1 setup. You truly need to consider the Teacher/Student/Parent paradigm when deciding on applications that enhance the learning environment. Where there is not workflow vision the people will perish.

10 Reasons Schools Should Still be Using iPads - Ed Tech Today

10 Reasons Schools Should Still be Using iPads - Ed Tech Today | Teaching with Tablets | Scoop.it
After its launch the iPad quickly became the darling of the K-12 education community. Schools and teachers quickly saw the opportunities that it afforded students and jumped to get them into their hands. Fast forward a few years and it seems that a lot of schools have relegated the iPad to a supporting role or ditched them entirely. As mentioned elsewhere this is primarily due to a lack of clear vision, a misunderstanding of what the iPad is and an imiginative, uninspiring curriculum.

While the iPad may no longer be the technology de jour in certain circles it is impossible to ignore what a compelling device the iPad is. So, why is the iPad still the best choice for schools, teachers and students.

I think that while you do get quality for your money with the iPad, you can also get good Android tablets for a lot less. The biggest reason I am still a proponent of iPads in school instead of  Android tablets(our school has both) is that at present, the quality and availability of apps  for the iPad, in particular those that focus on creative multimedia is by far greater than for Android.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 1, 8:33 AM

Where will technology make the biggest impact on education? This post shares nine areas, based on research, where the use of technology is making an impact.

What are the ten areas? Below is a list of the top five. Find additional information on each by clicking through to the post, as well as links to other resources.

1. Critical Thinking - In this area four kinds of thinking are discussed: Analogical, Expressive Experiential, and Problem Solving.

2. Mobile Learning

3. Access to Education

4. Continuous Feedback

5. Unlimited and Immediate Learning

Please note that the title on the post days there are ten areas, but number four is missing in the document (or there are only nine areas). I renumbered the areas above so that they are consecutive.

Norton Gusky's curator insight, March 2, 7:27 AM

Ten examples of how technology makes learning more impactful. Examples include : critical thinking, mobile learning, learning to learn, continuous feedback, and global awareness.

Matthew M.'s curator insight, March 4, 12:32 AM

This post relates to the readings because it talks about the way critical thinking is important to acquiring knowledge and how technology affects our learning. One of the significant aims of education is to produce learners who are well informed, that is to say, learners should understand ideas that are important, useful, beautiful and powerful. Another is to create learners who have the appetite the appetite to think analytically and critically, to use what they know to enhance their own lives and also to contribute to their society, culture and civilization.
