this is on point. in today's generation school has become a chore, not because it is boring or uninteresting (and it is) but because that is how we were raised to think. school is supposed to "suck" and we are supposed to hate it with a fiery passion. but if we could integrate the [arts kids love about school into the subjects we don't  believe that kids could learn to be excited about Knowledge and the expanse if possibility it holds.

Curriculum comes from currere which has to do with repeatedly running the course and autobiography implying complex conversations. These happen in School and outside.

12 Characteristics Of An iPad-Ready Classroom

12 Characteristics Of An iPad-Ready Classroom | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

iPads are "wondrous little devices capable of enchanting learners for hours, to get the learning results you’re likely after will take planning, design, and reflection."

This post discusses four areas of instruction and instructional design that will help you integrate iPad in the classroom. The four areas are each followed by three bullet points. See each area below, with one of the bullet points listed. Click through to the article for more information.

* Curriculum is Adaptive (as in less rigid). There are "Learning pathways, embedded differentiation and personalization, culturally and cognitively responsive tasks and work that honors constructivist thinking and doing over passivity and compliance."

* Instruction is diverse (as in less uniform).  "With access to a nearly infinite number of digital domains, instruction will have to adapt in parallel, including peer-to-peer, student-to-student, school-to-school learning; mastery-based learning via apps such as the Khan Academy."

* Assessment is Frequent and Formative (as in less intermittent and summative). "A climate of assessment that yields simple data digestible to all stakeholders–including the teacher."

* Integrated with Relevant Communities (as in purely academic, or forced, awkward audiences–for the love of everything, please no more letters to the principals). Digital, Physical, Local, Global
