Making lectures and lessons more interactive with mQlicker | WCPS eSMART | Scoop.it
As the traditional lecture has come increasingly under fire for being completely out of touch with modern teaching and learning methods, there has been a move by many teachers, conference presenters and lecturers to make their teaching techniques more modern and interactive. One of the key technologies for enabling this has been a range of audience response systems that provide real time responses to polls, questions and surveys while the speakers is actually presenting.

The Many Benefits of Using iBooks in Education - Emerging EdTech

The Many Benefits of Using iBooks in Education - Emerging EdTech | WCPS eSMART | Scoop.it
"Apple’s electronic books are an excellent compliment to their tablets and to the needs of education. Even before the computer revolution, the significant materials demands for teaching and learning were a bone of contention. For school administrations, textbooks and supplementary materials are a giant money pit; for teachers, generating endless handouts is a time-sink, and for students, organizing — and carrying — reams of xeroxed sheets and monumental textbooks is cumbersome, to say the least."

Note-Taking with iPads

Note-Taking with iPads | WCPS eSMART | Scoop.it
"I vividly remember how I first learned to take notes. My sixth grade geography teacher lectured in outline style: "Roman Numeral one - China. A - Qin Dynasty. 1 - Rulers . . . " We wrote down precisely what he said, and to this day, I still take notes in outline form. However, consider Sunni Brown's TED Talk, "Doodlers Unite." She argues that engaging in sketching while listening to complex ideas further supports learning."
