In my view this really is the future and is worth investing your time in it.

Manal Karnib's curator insight, April 22, 2013 6:41 AM

 iPads are an effective tool used within classrooms as it keeps students engaged with their work. Walsh (2009) discusses the affect technology is having on society as well as in the classrooms. As students are now given the opportunity to read electronically, allowing students to visually and interactively view novels through technological advancements such as iPad’s, enhances ones understanding of specific issues as it allows information to be read, listened to and comprehended in an interesting manner. Nonetheless the use of technology in the classroom does not come without opportunities as well as challenges for the teachers who use them to support learning. The main aim of the research project throughout this source was to see the effect iPads as an eBook has on students and if it has any impact on their learning. Results showed that although the students participating in the study reported an increase in engagement when using the iPad, there was not a corresponding rise in achievement. It was also seen that at times it served as a distracter and it also frustrated attempts to engage the students in “offline” discussion, suggesting there are strong implications for pedagogy. This source allows teachers to be prepared for any problems they may encounter when using iPads in the classroom as well as being able to relate to the other teachers that had mixed feelings.

 

Teaching strategies that can be implemented in the classroom with the use of iPads include having students use a range of applications that the teacher can download relating to any topic. For example when teaching Maths the teacher can resort to the range of application that teach students how to add and subtract in an engaging manner. Students can also use their iPads as an eBook and read and write about a range of books. This will ensure that all students are engaged and interacting with their work. Following on, as a form of assessment, the students can then read and write about the same book without the use of technology and have students discuss their experience with the rest of the class. Observing and recording how students respond is also an effective tool when assessing students.

Interview

Interview

Alex Shidel's insight:

Dear Dr. Butler,
     Hello, I am Alex Shidel, a senior at Penn-Trafford High School. I am
currently working on my senior research project for which I need to conduct an
interview. The topic of my project is The Effect of Technology on Society. I was
wondering if I could set up a time for a short interview over the phone to
discuss the new change for the electronics policy at Penn-Trafford High School.
Would a short phone call on Thursday between 3:00 and 5:30 be convenient for
you? If you can do the interview please let me know what time would be best and
what number I can use to reach you.
     Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
Sincerely,
Alex Shidel

Alex,

Is there a time convenient for you during the day in which I can stop up so we
can talk?

Take care,
Dr. Butler

______________________________________________________

 

Dr. Butler,
      Anytime during the day is fine with me. I have a study hall 4th period, 9:50-10:35 if that would work for you. If not, anytime would work. 

Thanks,
Alex Shidel 

_______________________________________________________

 

Dear Dr. Butler,

        I am just touching base since we did not have a chance to meet last

week. As I said in my previous email, I have a study hall during 4th period from

9:50 to 10:35 if that is convenient for you. Please let me know if there is a

day that we can meet, and if not perhaps there is a better time to reach you?

 

Thanks,

Alex Shidel
