6 Studies Showing iPads Improve Learning | Teaching Techie Teens | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Teachers who are fighting for stronger tech integration in their schools often come against opposition from people who believe technology not have a positive effect on student learning. This is particularly true with iPads, devices that many people see as a device for content consumption, not creation. Below is a list of studies into iPads and learning, with dot points about what students the study relates to, the subjects involved and the results.

Cat's Chronicles: Educating Parents on iPads being used in Classrooms

Cat's Chronicles: Educating Parents on iPads being used in Classrooms | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

As a past administrator I fully understand the value of communication and it is one that I consistently see overlooked in schools by teachers and administrators.  I am not sure the average joe in schools gets how important communication is between home and school.  As an administrator almost everything I did, or everything that came up, came back to communication or lack thereof.  Not once has communicating with a parent or guardian as teacher, principal, or coach ever turned out to be a bad situation for me in the end.

Nicole Kotoski's curator insight, March 31, 10:38 PM

This is very true. While we try and reach up to the highest post (redefinition) in the SAMR model we should also be looking at the learning that takes place.  Technology should always support the learning of our students. To enhance and build the process. We need to provide each student with a learning experience relevant to them and reflect on the ways we incorporate the technology within the classroom. We need to teach WITH ICT as opposed to learning about it.  I like that this model makes you think about how you use technogy within the classroo. It can make for re-evaluation and improvement about working with technology.

Hazel Kuveya's curator insight, April 10, 10:41 PM

The SAMR model is very practical in modern day learning, it is interesting to learn that the focus is on using ICT to facilitate learning.

Channylt's comment, April 11, 2:55 AM
I agree with @Nicole Kotoski that technology should support the learning of the students, and I the SAMR pool diagram is a smart way to look at the model rather than a goal to reach the Redefinition stage - I see it as being a model to see how technology can facilitate learning and where certain technologies fit in that model or how technology can be used in learning whether its just at the enhancement phase where technology is used to functionally change the way we are learning e.g. reading a hardcover book to reading an e-book the technology is changed but we still have to read the content… Transformational learning comes from technology re-defining and re-designing how we learn, what we learn that have previously been inconceivable.

Felix Jacomino-The Many Facets of Technology Integration

Felix Jacomino-The Many Facets of Technology Integration | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

We are so excited to be joined by Felix Jacomino as our special guest presenter to hear about his experience and leadership with integrating technology in his 1:1 iPad initiative at St. Stephen's Episcopal Day School in Coconut Grove, Florida. He is also the creator and host of Miami Device, a mobile learning event presented by his school in November of 2014.

Technology used to be synonymous with a stand-alone computer, in a lab, with a schedule for students to go and learn about its parts, history, and use them at the lowest level of the SAMR model. Today, we're starting to leave 1:1 behind and talking X:1 because of ubiquitous presence of mobile devices in every part of our lives. Just because we have a lot of devices though, does not mean they are used the best ways possible. And sometimes, that can mean putting them aside.

Effective, ongoing, and quality professional development is the key to an environment where students are empowered by enthusiastic teachers who are mentors and well-aware of the endless ways these tools can be leveraged to best meet each student's goals.

This is a great resource as it stresses that the importance of technology integration is for the benefit of the kids not for the sake of using technology.  This is the first source I've found that discusses the importance of how technology is integrated, not whether it is good or bad to integrate it.  I think it is an interesting and different take from what I had previously been looking at and will likely look more into this aspect of technology in the classroom.
