Using an app called iAnnotate, I could write comments on PDFs but also add voice comments, allowing me to make grading more personal but also add details that I otherwise wouldn’t have included.

Apple TV in the Classroom | Lazy Teacher or Effective Teacher? You Decide! | Tap Into Teen Minds

Apple TV in the Classroom | Lazy Teacher or Effective Teacher? You Decide! | Tap Into Teen Minds | Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) LPS | Scoop.it
One of the additional features of Apple TV which goes unnoticed for many typical users would be the option to mirror the screen of your iPad.  For someone using Apple TV at home, this may not be a popular feature, but for a teacher, it is a must have for the classroom.

The mirroring feature is great for teachers who wish to present directly from their iPad, but even better for classrooms with a 1:1 iPad project like my Tap Into Teen Minds paperless classroom.

Evaluating Apps with Transformative Use of the iPad in Mind | Langwitches Blog

Evaluating Apps with Transformative Use of the iPad in Mind | Langwitches Blog | Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) LPS | Scoop.it

I want teachers to be able to, not only ask for and use an app, because someone else recommended it, but I want teachers equipped with the curiosity and the knowledge of:

the value an app can bring to a learner (and being able to articulate the value)
the connection from the app to curriculum content (and being able to demonstrate the depth of that connection)
the possibilities the app can bring in order to amplify (take a look at a previous post: The Next Step: Amplification )
the difference of using an app to automate and substitute a task versus informate and transform (previous post: Enhancement-Automating-Transforming-Informating )
how to evaluate apps for their transformative potential?

Here are six pieces of advice I would pass on to anyone leading the Teaching and Learning side of an iPad deployment. I’ve learned as much from our successes as our shortcomings and hope you find this helpful.

1. Start with the learning

2. Scaffold activities

3. Create a showcase

4. Create opportunities to play

5. Share

6. Always find a workaround, even a partial one

7. Get students involved

I previously published a chart of Bloom’s Taxonomy and iPad Apps, which I use regularly when planning projects or look to reinforce certain skills and literacies. Since I also rely heavily on The Digital Learning Farm concept (based on Alan November’s work), I felt it was time to create a similar chart in order categorize iPad apps for each role.

Will Apple create the all-iPad classroom? - San Jose Mercury News

Will Apple create the all-iPad classroom? - San Jose Mercury News | Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) LPS | Scoop.it
Apple’s foray into digital textbooks for the iPad could dazzle educators and corner a huge, lucrative K-12 book market.

 

"Despite the cachet of Apple, "districts shouldn't get crazed by technology. They should figure out what they want, then work backward," said Michael Horn of the Innosight Institute, a Mountain View think tank promoting "disruptive innovation" in education. "The iPad is getting a huge amount of attention, a lot of districts are spending money on it, but they haven't thought out why."

Seth's Blog: The map has been replaced by the compass

It doesn't pay to memorize the route, because it's going to change soon.

The compass, on the other hand, is more important then ever. If you don't know which direction you're going, how will you know when you're off course?

And yet...

Bring Your Own Technology Empowers Educators to Facilitate Learning

Bring Your Own Technology Empowers Educators to Facilitate Learning | Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) LPS | Scoop.it
As more students bring their own devices to school, Forsyth County Schools prepares teachers to facilitate learning and assess different kinds of work.Even before the initiative, teacher Jo Paget empowered her fourth-grade students to take charge of their learning at Coal Mountain Elementary. Before each lesson, she tells them the learning objective they're aiming for, and they continually assess themselves to see how they're doing.

"We need to take that time and we need to tell them before we teach them, 'This is what you're learning,'" Paget said.

My Ten Most Used Apps to Become Fluent on the iPad | Langwitches Blog | Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) LPS | Scoop.it
Fluency on the iPad, like language fluency, does not necessarily come natural to most people. Unless you grow up in a language, as your mother tongue, and you acquire speaking this language unconsciously as a baby and child, it will require an effort (to various degrees) on your part to learn to become fluent in that language. Becoming fluent on the iPad requires a conscious effort and time as well.

iPad As.... | Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) LPS | Scoop.it

In order to help educators integrate iPads effectively, we have compiled a list of apps focused on learning goals consistent with the CRCD framework. While many of these apps have also appeared in our iPads in the Classroom section, this list is driven by specific learning goals that promote critical-thinking, creativity, collaboration, and the creation of student-centric learning environments.
