Design Thinking with iPads - IPAD 4 SCHOOLS

Design Thinking with iPads - IPAD 4 SCHOOLS | Tech Tips and teaching | Scoop.it
Design thinking is a powerful tool to really get your students thinking about and tackling a problem or topic at a much deeper level. It is a structured task that focuses on giving considerable time to thinking about and empathising with the people within the situation (Target audience or client), designing and prototyping a possible solution that is immediately challenged in order to improve it. It is used much in business and the design industry but can be used as a general classroom task within any subject area. It also gets students to work quickly without much introduction.

5 Things To Know About The BYOD Trend - Edudemic | Tech Tips and teaching | Scoop.it
The Bring-Your-Own-Device trend makes sense. It's cost-effective and lets students use the device they already know and love. While it may present some problems for your school or district's IT department, it's a great start to bringing in web 2.0 tools and apps to the classroom.

Coding is set to be the next generation jump. TV, internet, mobile phone, Google, iPad, Coding.

 

Students currently in schools do not seem to understand pre-Google. Technologically Word, Powerpoint, and web design are primary school tools.

 

Students who are not yet at school will be undertaking their education in an environment where they do not seem to understand devices that cannot be controlled by touching the screen, 3D printing of parts and pieces are common, and coding is a primary school tool.

The Myth Of Digital Citizenship And Why We Need To Teach It Anyway | EdReach | Tech Tips and teaching | Scoop.it
At one time in the not so distant past there were no cell phones. And then everything changed at a rate faster than the speed of amending a student handbook. I can distinctly remember the first time one of my 8th grade students brought a cell phone to school. It really wasn’t that big of a deal, more of a novelty really. I mean one student with a cell phone had next to no bearing on our day to day school operations. But then a second student brought a cell phone.

BYOD: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

BYOD: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly | Tech Tips and teaching | Scoop.it

“BYOD” Bring Your own Device. A great idea that can easily turn messy.

 

Biztech has introduced the BYOD: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly infographic asking you to answer 6 easy but important questions before you launch into a BYOD situation.

 

If your company is considering allowing employees to bring their own devices to work, make sure you have a game plan in place.

BYOD has freed up many enterprises from the responsibility of exclusively purchasing and maintaining computing devices, such as notebooks, tablets and smartphones, but companies still need to have policies set in place to make things work.

BizTech magazine has put together an infographic that highlights six core questions every company should consider before moving forward with BYOD:

 

- Who buys the devices?


- What’s the right policy?


- What’s the employee’s role?


- What’s the impact on IT?


- How do we tackle security?


- How about apps?


For each of these questions, we’ve outlined a good answer, which we’d advise you to follow; a bad answer, which probably isn’t the best way to handle things; and an ugly answer, which should be avoided at all costs. Hopefully, this will help your company remain on the pleasant side of this growing workplace trend.

We are living in revolutionary times. It is urgent that we think of education, children and teaching differently from the past. The classroom needs to be a place of innovation where students are able to connect with others, feel empowered and curious and have a say in their learning. Technology provides us with tools to expand our minds and extend our reach (Sir Ken Robinson, 2014).
