iPads vs. PCs in Teaching

iPads vs. PCs in Teaching | Educate | Scoop.it

"This is an opinion piece for the pros and cons of using both iPads and the traditional PCs in teaching. Since I am beginning my fourth year of using an iPad in my classes, I thought it would be great time to compare how each device is used, as well as state how they can complement one another. I contacted my colleague Jonathan Wylie, and we brainstormed together some ideas for this post."

iPads open doors for students in poor school districts

iPads open doors for students in poor school districts | Educate | Scoop.it

"COACHELLA VALLEY, Calif. -- For Alicia Silva, a single mother with three kids and three jobs, an iPad is out of reach.

 

Silva works as a part-time art teacher, seamstress and home-care provider, and like many hard-working parents, can't afford a tablet computer.

 

Sometime in the next few weeks, though, the Coachella Valley Unified School District will take care of that. It will issue an iPad to each of Silva's three children as part of a program that will provide them to all 19,000 students in the district, one of the state's poorest."

know that Child's mind is delicate and it would be difficult for him to make a difference in what is required by his/her potential.

It is very good to note that School administration is taking care of the needs of poor people by distributing it free. I think moren more corporate should come forward and help in eradicating this social difference between rich and poor.More technical advance in early stage will produce quality students who would be self sustaining and would discover many innovations which will change the future.

I find it very interesting that Coachella Valley Unified has found the resources to provide all children in the school with iPads. Although it is a good idea, as in this ever increasing technology dependent world it becomes essential for children to have access to the internet. With these iPads children can save a lot of money on text books and trips to do research in the libraries. This is especially helpful as a lot of the district is very poor as farming and similar jobs are in the majority(90 %). I do however feel that preschool children to not have a need for iPads and they are more likely to break them or lose them. The funding of iPads to preschool children could be put to better use. This story is engaging as it starts from the perspective of one family to get you interested and then widens into the whole school.

Caroline Weber's curator insight, October 3, 2013 3:33 PM

Technology plays an increasingly prevalent role in children's lives, so why not use it to educational advantages? This article discusses how technology can be embraced (without expense to school districts) to assist students with learning disabilities or other special needs. I think models like this should seriously be considered, especially in low budget districts, because support for special education students should not be limited to a single teacher's aid. Support should stem from multiple sources. 

Dr. Peterson's curator insight, August 13, 2014 8:11 PM

"Personalized learning" is the new buzz term in education.  This article specifically addresses the benefits of BYOD for students with special needs.
