Evaluating Apps with Transformative Use of the iPad in Mind

Evaluating Apps with Transformative Use of the iPad  in Mind | Technology Leadership Resources for PK-12 | Scoop.it
Tweet The app development market is exploding. More and more companies are creating “educational apps”. In some cases, they are simply digital versions of a book or a web based tool. So...
NJ Audet's insight:

Content from site....

 

I have teachers ask  me frequently about app recommendations for different subject areas.

“What app could I use to teach subtraction?”“What app would you recommend for my students to practice writing?”“I want to use iPads in my Science class. What app is good for that?”

I usually sigh to myself, when I receive questions like that. While I am not against in suggesting apps ( which I love doing), I am not comfortable with the level of disconnect between the teacher (who knows her/his students best) and the curriculum related skills and objectives and pedagogical relationship that needs to be in place for an app to be a match to use in a classroom or with an individual learner.

I want teachers to be able to, not only ask for and use an app, because someone else recommended it, but I want teachers equipped with the curiosity and the knowledge of:

the value an app can bring to a learner (and being able to articulate the value)the connection from the app to curriculum content (and being able to demonstrate the depth of that connection)the possibilities the app can bring in order to amplify (take a look at a previous post: The Next Step: Amplification )the difference of using an app to automate and substitute a task versus informate and transform (previous post: Enhancement-Automating-Transforming-Informating )how to evaluate apps for their transformative potential?

The Sad Reality Of Education Technology - Edudemic

The Sad Reality Of Education Technology - Edudemic | Technology Leadership Resources for PK-12 | Scoop.it
In case you haven’t noticed yet, we are in the midst of the largest technological revolution in decades.
NJ Audet's insight:

The Sad Reality Of EdTech

The sad reality is that most schools still believe that they are “teaching with technology” because they have a computer lab where they teach students important skills like word processing and how to create Power Point presentations. This may have been a worthwhile skill to teach 15 years ago, but the fact that we haven’t adapted as technology has is a clear example of how slow schools are to respond to the changing needs of our students.
