The Single Most Important Factor for iPad Success in Schools

The Single Most Important Factor for iPad Success in Schools | The Academy for self-Learners | Scoop.it

"When you think of iPads in schools, you probably think of a cart that's wheeled into a classroom. Youngsters cheer at the arrival of the cart. Devices are passed out, used for a lesson, and then returned to the cart. The cart is then whisked away to another classroom where the same thing happens. Having a cart of devices puts the adults in charge of the technology. If possible, I would like to see students in control. Instead of teachers worrying about syncing, battery level, and app installation, learners should manage all of that. After all, isn't that a crucial skill for living in this century?"

A Shangri-La for Self-Learners

Autonomy, independent learning, self-directed learning… these concepts have been buzzing education for the last decade. More and more people dissatisfied with traditional schooling and high tuition rates, armed with their insatiable passion for knowledge and an IPad, choose to acquire education on their own terms transcending the boundaries of the traditional classroom. In just the last week I received over a dozen inquiries from both students and teachers about online resources for such self-motivated and curious individuals. The problem is that while self-learning is in vogue, there have been just a few attempts to provide a unified, structured and organic setting for independent learning… And so, many self-learners are still wandering through the cyberspace looking for their Shangri-La.
