iPads in the Classroom

"At DonorsChoose.org we have noticed a recent trend in technology-based project requests. Teachers recognize that we live in an age of information and are excited to bring items such as iPads, laptops, iPods, and Kindles into their classrooms. Eric Crouch of Columbus, GA created a video about how he uses iPads to engage his first grade students. Take a peek into Mr. Crouch’s classroom as he discusses the benefits of learning through iPads."

How Teachers Feel About The 10 Biggest EdTech Trends - Edudemic

How Teachers Feel About The 10 Biggest EdTech Trends - Edudemic | Technology in K-12 Education | Scoop.it
Figuring out the biggest edtech trends is a great first step. We've taken it many times. Figuring out how teachers actually feel or care about those particular trends is a whole other story.
Jessica Raeside's insight:

Only 100 teachers surveyed in Europe and U.S. However, Interactive Whiteboards came out as having the largest "not interested at all category". Things are moving fast, let's spend budgets wisely! 'Social Media in the classroom' did not rank as highly as what I would have thought.

I agree on all counts. We are using Apple TV aon the HS level and it's faster connectivity with more functionality.

Niels Jakob Pasgaard's comment, January 22, 2013 2:17 AM
I agree, that the iPad/AppleTV combination is better than the IWB. However, I don’t think any of them are of great value when it comes to the learning outcome.

Give each student the opportunity to bring their own device instead.
Leanna K Johnson's comment, January 22, 2013 10:39 AM
Niels, I also allow students to use their own devices or incorporate them into our activities. But they must be able to adapt themselves. The sharing of this idea is for the purpose of comparative outcomes.

The iPads go on a Field Trip | The Middle Pages

The iPads go on a Field Trip | The Middle Pages | Technology in K-12 Education | Scoop.it
"Last month our middle school tech class went to Lansing to attend the MACUL ATT Student Showcase. While there, I asked the students to use an iPad to somehow create a project to document what happened on the trip. I gave them a list of suggested apps, but left it open for students to make their own creative choices about the project.

Several students used the wonderful Book Creator app to create epub books about the trip. Here are links to two of the books that can be directly downloaded into iBooks on your iPad, iPod, or iPhone. (Note, it will take several minutes for the books to download, then select to open in iBooks.)"

Using Technology Vs Technology Integration- An Excellent Chart for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Using Technology Vs Technology Integration- An Excellent Chart for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology in K-12 Education | Scoop.it

"Are you using or integrating technology in your teaching ? At the face of it, it seems like a game of semantics but in fact it is more than that. When we talk about technology integration in the classroom we are talking about a planned and highly structured and purposeful use of technology with students whose ultimate goal is to engage students and help them develop new thinking skills. Using technology, on the other hand, is a random and sporadic process whose main goal is to instruct students on content not to engage them with content.


The chart below ,I came across in Teachbytes , offers a more detailed explanation of the difference between Using Technology and Integrating Technology. Have a look and, as always, share with us your feedback in the comment form below. Enjoy"

Always shoot for the integration.  I ask myself at the end of each day, among other questions, "who used the tech in the classroom today?"

Dr. Peterson's curator insight, August 13, 2014 8:25 PM

This chart will help you distinguish between enhancing your class with technology versus transforming or reconceptualizing concepts with technology.

"This school year I've worked with a few school districts that are using Google Apps for Education for the first time. A lot of what I have done with those school districts is help to get the teachers acclimated to using Google Drive. When I sat down to plan an upcoming Google Drive training session I thought about some of the essential Google Drive skills that teachers need in addition to creating documents, presentations, and spreadsheets. Here are five essential Google Drive skills I think teachers need."

25 Things Successful Teachers Do Differently

25 Things Successful Teachers Do Differently | Technology in K-12 Education | Scoop.it

"If you ask a student what makes him or her successful in school, you probably won’t hear about some fantastic new book or video lecture series. Most likely you will hear something like, “It was all Mr. Jones. He just never gave up on me.”

 

What students take away from a successful education usually centers on a personal connection with a teacher who instilled passion and inspiration for their subject. It’s difficult to measure success, and in the world of academia, educators are continually re-evaluating how to quantify learning. But the first and most important question to ask is:

 

Are teachers reaching their students?"
