The Invisible iPad: It’s Not About the Device

The Invisible iPad: It’s Not About the Device | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
The challenge for educators, especially directors of educational technology, is not to limit how our teachers teach, but to focus on the foundational skills and provide a clear and concrete formula for how different technological devices and applications will enhance these skills in order to give a learner the ability to create a product that will change the world.

Digital technologies should not be invisible. In their usage, we need to make them visible and unobtrusive. Their visibility helps us understand our relationships and choices.

An iPad can be a teacher’s very handy assistant! Last year I published an infographic titled "iPad as the Teacher’s Pet” and I have updated it to version 2.0. It’s all about what can be done by Pad-using educators, whether or not their students have iPads. It is divided into seven sections:

So what is Technology Integration? - Betchablog | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
I was asked by a colleague in another school the other day if I could give her a snapshot into what I actually do, and what the role of an ICT Integrator actually looks like (from my perspective anyway). Apparently she wants to talk to her school leaders about having an integrator on their staff …

Allie Peck's curator insight, April 4, 12:14 PM

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.

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Saying that it has always been this way, doesn’t count as a legitimate justification to why it should stay that way. Teacher and administrators all over the world are doing amazing things, but some of the things we are still doing, despite all the new solutions, research and ideas out there is, to put it mildly, incredible.

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 | 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.
