An iPad Toolkit - apps that have transformed my practice - ICT Evangelist | Technology in the classroom | Scoop.it
n case you hadn’t noticed, I’m quite a fan of the iPad (the Lollipop Nexus 9’s not too bad either). Not because of its design or because its by Apple or any of that, but because of its keen heritage in the learning arena. Any one who knows me will tell you that I am not one for using tech for tech’s sake, despite my evangelist moniker. Use of technology in a cross curricular sense should be measured and done with consideration for the best potential learning outcomes.

With all that said, I’ve been doing this for quite some time now and I thought it time that I shared some of the Apps that have stuck by me or have struck me for their ease of use and impact upon learning in the classroom.

Using iMovie App in Physical Education Lessons - November 2014

Using iMovie App in Physical Education Lessons - November 2014 | Technology in the classroom | Scoop.it

This month I have been supporting the PE department with using the iPads to enhance their lessons and pupils to analyse skills. Last year Apple updated iMovie app to include features such as Split Screen, Freeze Frame, Video Speed etc. This year the update has made some of these features a little easier to find.

 

Split Screen: We have used this to compare videos of the same skill taken from two different angles. For example, a cricket bowling action.

 

Video Speed: We have used this by splitting part of a clip where the skill is most demonstrated and slowing it down.

 

Freeze Frame: We can stop a clip at any point and create a freeze frame. This freeze frame can be split at either end to create a separate clip and textual analysis added.

 

I would also like to say a big thank you for all the great feedback to the iPad Teachers App. We are only at the start of the content we can add to this so look out for the first update in mid December with even more ideas. Details of the app can be found at www.ipadteachers.co.uk

Delivering Differentiated Instruction in Your Classroom

Delivering Differentiated Instruction in Your Classroom | Technology in the classroom | Scoop.it

Carol Ann Tomlinson, author of “The Differentiated Classroom: Responding to the Needs of All Learners,” is the country’s preeminent scholar on differentiated instruction. Tomlinson defines differentiated learning as “ensuring that what a student learns, how he/she learns it, and how the student demonstrates what he/she has learned is a match for that student’s readiness level, interests, and preferred mode of learning.” She likens the reluctance to integrate modern knowledge of the learning process into the classroom to settling for a Model T instead of embracing 21st-century engineering.

Tomlinson is one of the contributors to ED 262 content

Audrey's curator insight, November 12, 2014 3:20 PM

Differentiation works when students take responsibility for their own learning.  Students in particular those doing A levels are given booklets, notes, presentations and textbooks with lesson plans and schemes of work.  When a teacher walks into the classroom students should not be sitting waiting for the teacher to tell them what to do.  They should already be engaged in looking over their own notes and ready to ask the teacher questions about aspects of the course that they are not certain of. Or ready to ask where they can get more information.

 

Most students have I-pads, mobile phones that can access the whole web.  They can look for information on youtube for most subjects which can add to their learning.  Differentiation has never been easier.  The teacher's job is to give out the resources, point students to where to find information, give overviews of the lessons based on the syllabus, which he students also have.  During class, time should be spent  understanding the information, discussions,  showing how to answer exam questions, followed by essays.  This is 21st Century learning and it works!

 

Have a look at http://www.hotmoodle.com  a website for psychology .

"SAMR model is a conceptual framework developed by  Dr. Ruben Puentedura to help you better integrate technology in your instruction. SAMR stands for Substitution, Augmentation, Modification and Redefinition. Each of these four levels correspond with a set of tech-based activities and learning tasks. The strength of SAMR model is that it provides teachers with a robust method to gauge and assess the efficacy of the technology they and their students use in class.

Rules and regulations are crucial for having a focused classroom which is surrounded by technology.  Keeping the learners focused on the material is a way of delivering content obtaining an optimal response from the students.  This article shows some good ways of implementing this in the classroom scene.  Following ethical options that have the instructor focused on facilitating the delivery of content using technology, and less worried about always having challenges with learners not engaged.
