5 Critical Mistakes Schools Make With iPads (And How To Correct Them) - Edudemic | Technology for the Primary Teacher | Scoop.it
While we’ve witnessed many effective approaches to incorporating iPads successfully in the classroom, we’re struck by the common mistakes many schools are making with iPads, mistakes that are in some cases crippling the success of these initiatives.

All teachers who use an iPad should read this.
Andreas Kuswara's curator insight, April 17, 2013 9:28 PM
Many misunderstood iPad, not knowing what affordances it offers, and how to match that with their pedagogies or learning activities; the author probably rather strict in explaining the list, such as Content specific apps, it can be very useful, or make that extremely useful; but that is not the only thing that iPad can do, there are many other things, yet not everything. So knowing what can and can’t be done, and how to get around shortcomings and exploit strong points are the new digital literacy that anyone, particularly teachers need to know, probably need to experience and live, soak, immerse in. how each affordance interact and how is the mechanism of perceiving the affordance itself. Teaching is never been so exciting as now; we are entering a new uncharted (or partly charted) waters.

What is impressive about this setup are at least two things: 1) It is reasonbly priced at around $200 US and 2) it is highly portable. If you don't have a screen, find a white or light colored wall and go for it.

great tool,we use a simpler version of this at our school

Apps for Guided Reading | Learning with iPads

Apps for Guided Reading | Learning with iPads | Technology for the Primary Teacher | Scoop.it

We have carried out various projects in schools looking at using the iPads to encourage reading. Guided Reading time, or group reading time, is especially popular.
Ideally the teacher and the iPads would be in different groups – the iPads are encouraging independent reading, and activities which allow the children to explore books, character, plot and so on by themselves. Producing at the end of the 20min / 30min session something which can be saved either to a webdav or to dropbox or which can be shared to the rest of the class.
It is important that texts chosen and activities selected are appropriate to the level of the children, and often the teachers introduces a text to the children first. For this reason the iPads and activities were often on a two week rotation.

Lou Salza's curator insight, March 6, 2013 12:16 PM

"If you like to use your iPhone, iPad or laptop in your classroom because it allows you to effortlessly navigate the learning space, one of the greatest frustrations can be having to constrain yourself to the vicinity of the projector cable every time you want to share your screen with the class.

I have seen this as a common practice even in open plan learning environments, which instantly does away with it’s greatest feature by forcing the teacher to move back to the front of the room.

Whilst you can get wireless projectors at great expense, have you ever thought of using Apple’s $99 Apple TV? I hadn’t until recently, but since using it I could never go back to a physical projector/tv connection for the following 4 reasons:..."
