Maybe this could be a solution to the CPS problem that we are having - especially since every student will have an iPad.  I have not looked into the data that is produced, but it might be something someone might be interested in researching!

Daniel Tan's curator insight, May 20, 7:40 PM

I think all these online response systems requiring the use of the students' devices are wonderful. However, is there an impact, perhaps one that might be significant enough, of the use of students' devices in that the device is personal. Do students using an older device relatively to others in the class be sensitive in its use When majority of the classmates have the latest ohone device models. Also when teachers and faculty be comfortable of students while using the devices in the exercise are distracted (actual or presumed or perceived) with other apps during that exercise? 

 

Also when the wireless access point be robust and reliable enough when it experiences a surge/flood of signals when large numbers of simultaneous responses are transmitted in a small time window. 

 

My observation is that teachers do not want to be encumbered with such distractions, uncertainty and confrontation when only partial student responses are recorded due to technical issues. The latter also leads to the technical support of student devices which is unknown (which version of OS), unfamiliar (what other apps or potential of interdependencies) and uncertainty (are you sure they are not checking on their apps while others are still thinking of their responses?)

Chris Carter's insight:

I applaud Chris Pappas for this piece. As a teacher at an international school in China I have lead teams of students out to rural Chinese schools where the teachers, self-aware that they are undertrained, prevailed upon me and my team to conduct impromptu teacher training. Five years ago I struck upon the idea of translating an outline of Keller's ARCs model into Mandarin. The key benefit, beyond the effectiveness of the model for framing lessons, is the relative simplicity of communicating the model. I have never looked back. Now I am sharing the translated model with other organizations' efforts to train teachers. Thank you, Dr. Keller! And thank you, Chris Pappas!

While the names of the mobile applications and computer programs may change, there are some foundational ways that technology has already changed the face of education forever. Here are four examples.
