I've recently been hearing a lot about Pheed and how teens are flocking away from platforms like Facebook and Instagram and to newer more creative and versatile platforms like this.

Retrieving Pupil Work off iPads- June 2013 Blog Post

Retrieving Pupil Work off iPads- June 2013 Blog Post | Holyhead e-learning | Scoop.it

I hope everyone who was on half-term last week had a relaxing break. I thought I would focus this month's blog post on an issue that faces every school using iPads: How to effectively gather the videos/documents that pupils are creating.

 

This is the one question I am always asked. With pupils using iPads to do everything from creating films, composing music and writing interactive ebooks, it is now no longer possible to always print off pupil work and staple it to a display board. With rumours that Apple will be announcing AirDrop for iPad next week at the WWDC conference, I thought it was a good time to round up the workflow solutions currently on offer for the iPad.

 

The Cloud
If the iPads are all connected to one Apple ID then you can use iCloud to access pupil work. This only really works with Pages, Numbers and Keynote. When pupils create a document then with iCloud turned on, it will push the document to all the other iPads connected to that Apple ID. This works to limited degree. I like the fact that you can access the documents from the web using iCloud.com but the whole thing is designed for the personal user and it restricted by storage size etc for education use.

Personally I feel that services like DropBox and Box are also designed for the personal user and I am slightly concerned about putting photos/videos of children on there because their terms and conditions are not designed for education. At school we use DropBox to send resources to pupils, like maps for geography and old photos for history. Google Drive also is popular in secondary education.

 

iTunes
When the iPad is plugged into iTunes, you can send documents from many apps, including GarageBand, Book Creator etc to iTunes using the sharing option. This works ok if you have a charge box that plugs all the iPads into the computer simultaneously but is quite time consuming compared to some of the other wireless options.

 

WebDav
This works by setting up a Mac as a Server by using Mountain Lion Server. You then put the server settings into each iPad and it allows pupils to save their iWork documents to a folder on the mac server. It also works with Explain everything app. I like this method but it is limited to the iWork apps so all photos/video will have to be out into apps like Pages and Keynote. There is also the Kanex MeDrive which I reviewed in a previous blog post.

 

Showbie and Edmodo
We began using Showbie in school in March and it works well. Teachers create an assignment name and and pupils use the Showbie app to drop documents/videos/photos etc to that assignment. Teachers can then use the app to view the file and give feedback to pupils. What I like about this is that firstly it works with the camera roll, iwork apps and apps such as Book Creator and Comic Life but it also works online too so pupils can add files from their computers at home to access at school or visa versa. Edmodo is similar but has a few more features designed for Secondary schools, such as quizzes.

 

QR Codes
More and more apps are enabling the user to upload the file to the web, such as My Story which is an ebook creator app that creates a web link for each book. QR codes can then be made with that link attached. These can be placed in newsletters and on displays so that parents can view pupil work on their smartphones.

 

So there you go, there are many options for sending files from iPad to another, such as InstaShare. The key is that there is no one size fits all. It very much depends on the size of the school, iPad deployment and policies. Have a good term and look out for an update to my book in late June and iPad training mornings in early July. www.ipadteachers.co.uk

iPads: From Pedagogical Crutch to Education Innovation

iPads: From Pedagogical Crutch to Education Innovation | Holyhead e-learning | Scoop.it

For students who struggle with output, the option now exists to record ideas directly "onto a page." Similarly, teachers can leave audio feedback for students who benefit from hearing input multiple times. With the built-in camera, students can quickly snap pictures of class notes on a board, or record a quick video of teacher instruction. Leveraging just these few features has the potential to personalize learning and differentiate instruction where it might otherwise be impossible.

We have a long way to go to understand best practices for iPads, to move it from a play thing to integrated into creative pedagogy. However, "The Longest Journey begins with the First Step" and that is getting into the hands or teachers and learners.

"I am currently working on a set of workshops where I am using the Literacy – Augmentative-transformative model of technology use http://edorigami.wikispaces.com/Tech_audit_tool ; to frame up use of iPads in a classroom.

 

I am currently looking at Augmentative or integrating technologies. Augmentative or integrative use of technology is often described as “Teaching with technology”. In this use of technology the student replaces traditional approaches with an equivalent digital version. A simple test to apply to see if the use of technology is Augmenting or transforming learning."

You teach, which means you need to know what students do and don’t understand.

Which means you need to assess.

You teach in the 21st century, which means you use the internet and digital tools to plan, share, and curate learning.

Which means online assessments could be a boon to your teaching, whether for blended learning, a flipped classroom, eLearning, to better communicate learning progress to parents, or for students to track their own mastery.

Developing Speaking & Listening Skills using the iPad - July 2013 Blog Post

Developing Speaking & Listening Skills using the iPad - July 2013 Blog Post | Holyhead e-learning | Scoop.it

This term I have been using the iPads in school to develop the pupil's speaking and listening skills. Here are a few things we have done.

 

Gruffalo
If you follow me on twitter, you may have noticed a few weeks ago that I shared a video of the animation Year 3 have produced. We focussed on the Gruffalo story and they retold it using the Puppet Pals app. The children chose a character from the story, drew it and on a separate piece of paper, drew the background for it. They then added the characters and backgrounds to the Puppet Pal's library before scripting out their scenes with other children. You can see a few examples at these links here.
https://www.box.com/s/b5ercugrc8z5uuwbilm4
https://www.box.com/s/qll9bm05xqdjx61xor9l

We exported the videos to iMovie and even added the Gruffalo soundtrack. However, there is no wifi in Year 3 so I had to film the iPads in order to share. We are now using QR codes in school and I uploaded the videos above to the box cloud app (www.box.com) where you can share a link. I attached the link to a QR Code Creator app and we then put these QR codes in our weekly newsletter for parents to view the videos on their devices. With children creating so much video and audio on the iPads, QR codes are being used more and more to share pupil work.

 

Advertising
Years 5 and 6 have been creating journeys through time using iMovie, Garageband and the Green Screen Studio FX app to impart historical information in an entertaining way. However, amongst that we worked on their advertising skills. We used the Titan Player app to download adverts from youtube to the iPad's camera roll where we put them into iMovie, removed the sound and the pupils added the voiceovers. They also created products in Foldify app, took a screen grab and added that into iMovie to advertise. The last step was to create some background music in Garageband.

In August I will be updating my book for free but you can download the June version here.

When it comes to BYOD, it takes a lot of people to ensure success.  Most problems can be solved, but usually not on the spot.  A successful pilot is one that is planned in advanced and communicated with the people that need to be involved to make it happen.  Advance communication with other experienced BYOD teachers in and outside your district and seeing what issues they have run across may save you a lot of time, heartache, and headaches as well.

This is more fun at the public library then at a school, but communication or organization are vital for a successful program. Learning the device is definitely not the same as familiarizing oneself with apps, that should definitely be a separate program. Valuable tips.

I let my business class do presentations on screen-casting.  It gets them a speaking grade for the end of term.  The reason I do this is a) so they can get it out of the way whenever they have time - the deadline is fairly long and b) they tend to take more trouble over it than if it were just an ordinary presentation, in front of the class.
