iHealthy Living « techchef4u | IPADS in Primary Schools | Scoop.it
Food, iMovie, and Keynote… what could be better? This iLesson showcases how our HC Top Chefs used a combination of iMovie, Keynote, and various note-taking apps to evaluate their favorite dishes, create a healthier alternative, and showcase it all using the iPad. While the project had been delivered in previous years, this year Mrs. Barron commented, “This is so much better than a PowerPoint” and a student shared their app-thusiasm for the lesson by chanting “thank you for making this unit so much fun”. Though the original assignment was intended to be a PPT and the teacher had limited comfort with iMovie and Keynote, she found that she didn’t have to teach the apps or the technology – the students took their iPads and ran with it … all the way to the kitchen and delivered projects that far exceeded her guidelines and expectations. I commend her for giving students the freedom to express their learning in multiple formats.

The iPad – What it should and shouldn’t be for Education

The iPad – What it should and shouldn’t be for Education | IPADS in Primary Schools | Scoop.it

I am so sick of the tech press misrepresenting the iPad purely as a content consumption device and complaining that it is not for content creation. I think they confuse content creation with publishing their articles with a traditional keyboard. On the contrary, the main reason schools should invest in iPads IS Content Creation. I’m not talking about Word or PowerPoint documents. That’s 20th century publishing that was meant for office workers and businessmen in the first place, not school kids.

Apps for Guided Reading | Learning with iPads

Apps for Guided Reading | Learning with iPads | IPADS in Primary Schools | Scoop.it

We have carried out various projects in schools looking at using the iPads to encourage reading. Guided Reading time, or group reading time, is especially popular.
Ideally the teacher and the iPads would be in different groups – the iPads are encouraging independent reading, and activities which allow the children to explore books, character, plot and so on by themselves. Producing at the end of the 20min / 30min session something which can be saved either to a webdav or to dropbox or which can be shared to the rest of the class.
It is important that texts chosen and activities selected are appropriate to the level of the children, and often the teachers introduces a text to the children first. For this reason the iPads and activities were often on a two week rotation.

Rolling out 1:1 Pencils

We have had pencils in our school now for some time, and we were one of the first to adopt them, but it has been an uphill struggle. There aren't enough to go around, and often several of the children have to crowd around to use the pencils at the same time. But we are better off than many schools. We have a well equipped pencil suite where the chained desktop pencils are used in special sessions, and often, as a reward for good behaviour children are allowed to come into the suite (under teacher supervision of course) to use the pencils to draw fun things.
