Jonathan Jarc's curator insight, December 31, 2012 10:53 AM

As more schools transition to 1:1 programs, many teachers ask for tips and strategies for using iPads in the classroom in transformative ways. Here are just a few possibilities.

Lou Salza's curator insight, January 2, 2013 6:52 PM

"The iPad is not magic, and as many educators have found integrating them meaningfully is by no means a just-add-water proposition.

The same applies to Project-Based Learning.

Project-Based Learning is a method of giving learners access to curriculum in authentic ways that promote collaboration, design, imagination, and innovation while also allowing for more natural integration of digital and social media. Below we’ve offered 23 ways that the iPad can be used in your classroom. While given strategies may or may not fit exactly into your curriculum or grade level, consider them instead as a kind of board of ideas to inspire your own thinking. If “Designing a tire” is beyond the ability of your 4th graders (and you’re certain of that), what else might they design instead? If analyzing narrative design sounds below your college freshman, what might them “consume and design” instead?

Note that the visual is also arranged in a kind of visual spectrum, as our past visuals have been. But this time, rather than being distributed by complexity, it is instead laid out in terms of the kind of workflow a learner might encounter in a 21st century, K-20, project-based learning environment."

IPads 'help improve young pupils' skills' - BBC News

IPads 'help improve young pupils' skills' - BBC News | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

The study - Mobile Devices in Early Learning - was carried out over two years and involved about 650 pupils in five Belfast primary schools and five nursery schools. 


Schools which took part were in some of the most deprived areas of the city. 


They were each supplied with sets of iPads for nursery, primary one, primary two and primary three classes. 


Researchers from Stranmillis University College then assessed how pupils, parents, principals and teachers used them over the course of two years. 


Among their key findings were that:
- The introduction of digital technology has had a positive impact on the development of children's literacy and numeracy skills
- Contrary to initial expectations, principals and teachers report that the use of ipads in the classroom has enhanced children's communication skills
- Children view learning using handheld devices as play and are more highly motivated, enthused and engaged
- Boys appear to be more enthused when using digital technology, particularly when producing pieces of written work

IPads helped young children to be more motivated and engaged in class, said Dr Colette Gray from Stranmillis, who was one of the study's authors.
