Easy iPad Management for Education- At Scale!

Easy iPad Management for Education- At Scale! | iPads in school | Scoop.it

iPad deployment includes all of the steps between buying an iPad and beginning to use the device. For an individual’s personal iPad, this is often a very fast and easy process lasting no longer than five minutes: You just open the box, turn it on, download the apps you want on your device, and go. But for a school, or district, with potentially hundreds of iPads–each one requiring a specialized list of apps that need to be purchased before protecting the devices with a case and sending them out to classrooms. As an administrator or teacher, there are a few things you will need to know before you deploy your iPads

Inspiring

Julie Newman's curator insight, November 15, 2013 11:43 AM

I found this article very inspirational because it describes a teacher, Jane Good, who did not give up on her special needs students, as the school system was prior to her arrival. Before she came to her current school, her special needs students were placed in broken-down classrooms where they were given no attention and very low expectations. Good was able to guide her students in overcoming these obstacles with the help of a technology grant she received allowing her to supply everyone of her students with an iPad. These iPads allowed students to accomplish goals no one ever thought was possible for them. For example, one student who had never written before due to his lack of fine motor skills wrote his first word on the iPad. Similarly, three other students were able to learn to read though the iPad's stimulating and interactive features. After reading this article, I found that the iPad and other technologies truly helped children with special needs step outside the limitations previously established for them by the school system and make progress no one ever believed could be made. This alone shows me how powerful this tool can be in a special needs classroom. These students need to be stimulated through interactive learning and the iPad provides just that. I have found a lot of research that agrees with this article and proves that technology is a necessity in the special needs classroom.

Ready to Learn? The Key Is Listening With Intention

Ready to Learn? The Key Is Listening With Intention | iPads in school | Scoop.it

Research on how we learn a second language demonstrates that effective listening involves more than simply hearing the words that float past our ears. Rather, it’s an active process of interpreting information and making meaning. Studies of skilled language learners have identified specific listening strategies that lead to superior comprehension. What’s more, research has shown that learners who deliberately adopt these strategies become better listeners.

We derive the most benefit from observation when we have in mind the conscious intention to carry out the action ourselves. In a 2006 study published in the Journal of Neuroscience, psychologist Scott Frey of the University of Oregon scanned the brains of participants as they watched videos of someone putting together and taking apart a toy made of several parts. One group of subjects simply watched the demonstration; another group was aware that they would be asked to reproduce the actions they viewed on the video.
