15 More Apps To Create Books On The iPad - TeachThought | iPads for Education | Scoop.it

I have iPads in the Classroom! Now What?

I have iPads in the Classroom! Now What? | iPads for Education | Scoop.it

"It sounds so cool to say “We have/use iPad in our school/classroom”.  Parents, community members and stakeholders might equal hearing such a statement with the assurance that the teacher/school is on the cutting edge of technology and their students are being prepared for a new world.  iPads (just as Smartboards used to) are a visual, easily counted and recognizable icon for such assurance.  Many schools around the globe are jumping on that proverbial “iPad bandwagon”

iPads are being handed out to faculty.a small number of devices or a class iPad cart is made available for classrooms to checkout.students might be asked to bring, lease or use school owned devices to create a 1:1 environment

You might be one of the teachers who is excited about the possibilities or apprehensive and fearful of the seemingly overwhelming task in front of you how to manage your classroom, students and the devices AND at the same time use them to improve student learning.

You might be thinking…

 

I HAVE iPADS IN THE CLASSROOM! NOW WHAT?"

I totally agree that owning the devices is not even half he battle? Have you invested as much time and thought into infrastructure so that they can be used to their full potential? Have you invested in staff traing (and understanding)? How will they raise standards?

QR Codes, Science Research, and Spelling Lists by Cheryl Snyder | iPads in the K-2 Classroom | iPads for Education | Scoop.it

"My second graders love using the I-nigma app to read QR codes.  As part of our science curriculum on environmental interactions we went to Pinchot for an Environmental Field Day, focusing on Insects and other “Pests.”  As a follow up activity when we returned, the students completed the “Spiders QR Webquest.”" http://blog.wssd.k12.pa.us/ipads/files/2013/06/QR-Spider-Activity.docx
