My First Impressions of iOS 7, Apple's New Operating System - Teaching with iPad

My First Impressions of iOS 7, Apple's New Operating System - Teaching with iPad | iPad PD | Scoop.it

"It was an exciting week for Apple fans. I had some interesting conversations regarding Apple’s new operating system, iOS 7:

 

“I don’t like this new iOS! I don’t know what to press!”

 

That was my wife the other day as she borrowed my newly updated iPad."

I'm beginning to love it - but I love change - some good and some the jury is still out :-)

Many people are upset by changes because it is not what we are used to and it can make life more difficult. However, changes in the long run are usually seen as positive. I personally love iOS 7 and the important thing is that my students are so thrilled about the changes to their iPads - that is all that matters!

New Adventures in Professional Development | The Road to Redefinition: Teaching with iPads and Android mobile devices | iPad PD | Scoop.it

"The SAMR model describes the progression educators make with technology from simply “substituting” analog tasks with digital tasks to “redefinition” which entails changing teaching and learning to the degree results were inconceivable before the invention of the technology. Investigate the progression and explore practical examples of how real teachers are accomplishing this with iPads and other Android devices."

Patrick Ward's curator insight, July 24, 2013 5:44 PM

For some time technological potential has been outstripping our imaginations' ability to process and apply it; unless we unleash our thinking, we will not be able to take full advantage of all that technology has to offer. Can we continue to apply current (or even outdated) teaching theories to an environment that is defined by an exponentially increasing rate of change? Should pedagogy always inform the choice of technology or is a more adaptive approach required? Can pedagogy evolve to adapt in step with technology? Can we as teachers?
