Conversations: Learning and Growing: 1 iPad? Seriously? What can I do with 1 iPad?

Conversations: Learning and Growing: 1 iPad? Seriously? What can I do with 1 iPad? | Technology in Edcuation | Scoop.it

"I run into this question sometimes when working with groups or individuals with the iPad. Some schools choose to pilot the iPad by starting with the teacher getting a device and going from there. I'm ok with that method. For some, that may be the toe dipping into the water method, and it may work for them."

Around the Corner-MGuhlin.org: #iPads, Multiple Users, and Meddling Student Fingers | Technology in Edcuation | Scoop.it

"Problem:

    I have a question and am not finding an answer so far in the discussions I've gone back through so thought I'd start here. We are in the process of beginning a "take-home" program with iPads for high school sophomores in English (target group for a grant we got).  What have people done as far as how students turn in work electronically to the teacher?  What we'd like is a way for students to turn in work to a teacher account somewhere in the cloud where it is secure from the eyes and possibly "meddling fingers" of other students.   

    The issue is also that the iPads will be used on different weeks by different classes so there will not be "one student/iPad" but rather an assigned student in each of the sharing classes who will have that iPad.  Setting up dropbox, etc. appears to let you set up each iPad to one account.  That won't work.  We'd like for each student to have their own account somewhere where they can keep their research and turn it in to the teacher when they are done and where it is accessible to only that student.  We're just beginning so I'm hoping there's a simple solution that we just haven't seen yet."

"Cellphones are becoming more popular as a teaching and learning tool in K-12 classrooms, as shown by a survey released Feb. 28. According to How Teachers Are Using Technology at Home and in Their Classrooms, nearly three-quarters of 2,462 middle and high school teachers say they and/or their students use cellphones in class or while working on assignments. Conducted by the Internet & American Life Project at the Pew Research Center in spring 2012, the survey included Advanced Placement and National Writing Project teachers."

"...this year I have been dedicated to using the 21st Century four Cs. The four Cs are a rubric of sorts that help align lessons to more reality-based learning and assessing.

As I design a lesson or assessment, I ask myself if what I've designed, or what the students must master, correlates to the important skills of:

* Collaboration

* Communication

* Critical Thinking

Insights from an iPad Newbie | New Mistakes

Insights from an iPad Newbie | New Mistakes | Technology in Edcuation | Scoop.it

"We are piloting iPads in our elementary campus this year, in groups of 5 per classroom. We offered the chance for our e-Learning leaders to apply for the opportunity, and almost all of them jumped at the chance. It has been an exciting and steep learning curve for us so far. Since I had never used them in the classroom myself, it has been a year of networking, learning, researching, reflecting and collaborating. It has been incredible watching the iPads literally transform the learning environment in the classroom. In addition, we also have a hub of 20 iPads in the library that can be signed out as a class set. In no particular order, here are some insights and reflections from our pilot:"

Emanuel Pineda's curator insight, May 4, 5:24 PM

As I have said before, we are sailing through the XXI century where Tech is closer to our lives, homes, and society; hence, when including technology in the learning environment, the facilitator will have the opportunity of covering different learning styles. Also, Tech makes teaching meaningful and fun given that students considers that Ed-Tech welcomes them into the increasing digital economy age. 

 

From this article, I enjoyed surfing on the E-books  website as result of the fact that this page has access to plenty of eletronics books for free; it means, students could read whatever book they want without paying.
