How iPads Can Create a More Engaging Classroom - teachingwithipad.org

How iPads Can Create a More Engaging Classroom - teachingwithipad.org | Digital Learning Resources | Scoop.it

"Not long ago, a teacher had nothing more to rely on than knowledge, textbooks and a few markers. Technology has slowly changed that in the past few years, with the Internet, multimedia programs and computers increasing their presence in the classroom. But with the rise of tablet tech, the student-teacher experience is facing a subtle revolution: joining the trend makes students feel as if they’re part of an environment that’s desirable because people speak their native languages. As the iPad becomes a teaching tool, classrooms are transformed into contemporary settings."

Have used some of these apps but there are more to look at.

Homeschool FL's curator insight, June 2, 2013 8:33 PM

Educational apps are popping up daily, but the question for parents is, how to know which ones are worth using, and which ones are not? Because let's face it, the app industry is out to make money, and many times app developers are very astute at making an app that "looks" educational, but in reality is just full of ads and sneaky ways of getting your children to buy something.

 

This article lists 46 different websites that review apps for teachers and students. This should help cut through the clutter and help pinpoint the useful from the fluff.

Joe's Non-Netbook

An SLA student tries to interface with a "foreign technology." Teacher: Zac Chase
Kate Skappel's insight:

Questions to ponder:

 

How do today’s students differ from students in previous generations? What words best describe today’s students? How are those words different from the words that would have best described students from previous generations? Do today’s students have strengths that previous generations didn’t have? How about weakness?


Another question: Just what skills DO our students need to master in order to be effective and efficient learners?" Are the skills that students need to master today significantly different than the skills that students needed to master in the past?

 

Finally, what impact has the changing nature of our students and our world had on what you do as a teacher?
