The Flip: End of a Love Affair

The Flip: End of a Love Affair | Ubiquitous Learning | Scoop.it

Yet my brief love affair with the flip has ended. It simply didn’t produce the tranformative learning experience I knew I wanted for my students .

How A Classroom Of iPads Changed My Approach To Learning

How A Classroom Of iPads Changed My Approach To Learning | Ubiquitous Learning | Scoop.it

By recognizing that our prior experience with ICT had created paradigms that constrained our thinking, we are starting to glimpse new learning opportunities made possible by one-to-one integration of iPads. Rather than viewing iPads as substitutes for other technologies (including paper), it is our view that iPads can be used as tools and environments for learning that allow for deeper and more diverse engagements. Our journey with iPads in learning continues.
