When our Year 1 and 2 teachers embarked on our 1:1 Mobile Learning program last term, they immediately saw the challenges of workflow. While embracing the multimodal capabilities of the iPad, we quickly realised the obstacles with our traditional thinking about the processes of handing up and giving feedback on new media including eBooks, video and the multitude of creations possible on the iPad.
We then asked:
Do teachers need to review every video during classtime?What about large file sizes and email?How can we give timely feedback?How can we keep up with all that students are doing?What needs to have peer feedback or be shared with the class via AirPlay?
Collecting, organising and giving feedback on digital media produced by students is a challenge! Until now.
