iPad in PE, an obvious decision - matpullen.com

iPad in PE, an obvious decision - matpullen.com | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

"Having taught PE using iPad since it first came out in 2010 I have seen it grow rapidly as a tool to support teaching and learning.

 

Having purchased one for personal use I could straight away see the opportunities it lent for me as a teacher with no fixed classroom.  All of a sudden I had access to information wherever I was round the school.  iPad 1 had its limitations though, namely the lack of a camera, but even without this it allowed me to make notes on learning, share videos with students about model technique and numerous other things to support my teaching, even simply planning and evaluating lessons on the go.

 

Then came iPad 2 and the camera.  This changed everything and I knew straight away that this was the way forward for the whole of the department."

Dragon Dictation: A Must-Have App for Writers - Brilliant or Insane - @AngelaStockman

Dragon Dictation: A Must-Have App for Writers - Brilliant or Insane - @AngelaStockman | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it
I began using Dragon Dictation a few years ago when my work with a group of struggling writers left me searching for a tool that could help them get the great ideas they were sharing aloud onto a page. I wanted something elegant: a tool that wouldn’t interrupt students as they were speaking but rather, quietly capture what they were saying and flip it into text.

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

Technology is way too often given a bad rap by administrators and educators as a distraction or a hazard for students.  When technology is integrated intentionally with foresight and with intention of addressing specific growth-oriented goals, it increases the potential to help students learn, develop, and grow in unique ways.  It can be used to help address the needs as described by Maslow.

I find this is an interesting re-interpretation.  Social activism at the top of the pyramid?  It kind of makes sense...

Miguel A. de Jesus's curator insight, Today, 1:13 PM

I like the authors integration approach. I also propose that Maslow's principles be viewed more directly from the perspective of today's technology and advances in brain thinking and neuroplasticity, to affect more permanent changes to one's thinking.
