iPads in the Classroom

At DonorsChoose.org we have noticed a recent trend in technology-based project requests. Teachers recognize that we live in an age of information and are excited to bring items such as iPads, laptops, iPods, and Kindles into their classrooms.

 

Eric Crouch of Columbus, GA created a video about how he uses iPads to engage his first grade students. Take a peek into Mr. Crouch’s classroom as he discusses the benefits of learning through iPads.

20 BYOD Resources For The 21st Century Schools | Teach Thought

20 BYOD Resources For The 21st Century Schools | Teach Thought | IPADS IN THE CLASSROOM | Scoop.it

BYOD policies–Bring Your Own Device–allow schools to bring technology into the classroom with a “bottom-up” approach. Such an approach can save money, allow students to use their own devices, and encourage a student-centered approach to learning.

 

Recently we explained that “digital natives or not, technology dropped into the laps of students in schools isn’t always as accessible as it might be. By allowing students to bring in their own devices for learning–rather than insisting that they learn both content and device in school–there is an important opportunity to connect with not just their personal lives, but their natural way of doing things.” But when you allow students to bring in hundreds of unique devices into a formerly closed technology setting, chaos can result–which is where, unfortunately, policy can be necessary.

 

Below is a list of 20 resources to help you get started with BYOD in your school or classroom. We will follow this up with related supporting resources later this week.

Ricky Rodriguez's insight:

When students get to bring their own devices it may facilitate their learning for the simple reason that they are used to their personal device. Moreover, not all students may have the privilege to own a smart device i.e tablets, smartphones, laptops, ect...in those cases schools will need to be prepared with sharable devices for their students.
